Z Reviews…

Does anybody know how the Sivga P-II compares to the Aiva, B20, M570, HF580? Though typically not my preferred sound signature, I was given a bunch of Amazon gift cards for Xmas and decided to snag one.

Welp that’s literately just a sendy with a different headband lol. Similar looking cable and packaging, but with a different case. Haven’t tried it but I wouldn’t doubt it’s similar to the sendy

Awesome. I have my preferences, but every once and a while I venture out of my comfort zone and find something I like (Hifiman Ananda, Beyerdynamic DT880, Focal Elear aren’t my preferred sound signature, but I enjoyed those).

Wow! its a Aiva with a Blon grill and different headband! Walnut too. It looks so similar to the Sendy its a wonder they dont get sued

At 400 though, you could spend a 100 bucks more and get a nicer headband and it would look to be better cables (the sendy)

Because how china works is by selling a design out so one company oems something and others buy it, that’s why you see many different brands of the same thing. Also suing a chinese company is extremely difficult and more likely than not a fruitless effort

I spent gift money, which is what I typically do when buying something out of my comfort zone. I spend my own funds on things I’ve heard and auditioned and researched. :wink:

Lol I didn’t notice that you picked it up :+1:, should be great

Should be something different looking at your collection

In addition, free shipping via Amazon Prime is too good to pass up. And they have a great return policy.

They’ll be arriving tomorrow, so I’m looking forward to testing them out.

Yeah curious to hear your thoughts on the sendy driver type and their tuning

Even though the treble is elevated, the frequency response graphs I’ve seen make it appear that the treble has ebbs and peaks, but they are small and well controlled. Of course, it is hard to reliably measure anything above 1 KHz, but even so, the treble looks remarkably controlled for being elevated.

Yeah it’s pretty controlled imo, it more comes down to if you prefer the way it presents, as it can be a bit aggressive at times (but not in a bad way)

For me, it really comes down to treble having a peak that is just too steep. For somebody that is picky with treble, I was surprised how I somewhat enjoyed the Grado SR80e. The 1 to 2 KHz mid peak was the one that got to me, just too shouty.

Seeing a planar controlled well through the treble had me too curious not to try. At the minimum, I will at least have a pair of cans that are different from the rest of mine.

From the review i read these headphones are very different from the Sendy Aivas, Blons or the M570. They sound warm. full balanced, rich, not for critical listening. Sound very different:

Hmmmmmm. But have they also reviewed the aiva there? I mean without having a review or impressions of the aiva I wonder if it really is that different

Also what the heck does colorful imaging mean

Lol yeah, colorful doesnt really define it doesnt it? I wish Zeos would review these but he may have Aiva burn out by now.

Interesting. That review does specifically say, re: the Blpons and the Aivas: "it seems that all three models originate in the same factories. However, according to Sivga, the driver technology has been updated in the P-II. " So a different driver, I assume – or what does “updated driver technology” mean? Anyway, a shot in the dark… I look forward to hearing about these.
