Rock Jaw Alfa Genus

 

The Alfa Genus headphones are Rock Jaw's attempt to bring audio versatility to budget in-ear headphones. They come with three discrete screw-in tuning filters, each carrying their own distinct sound.

Versatile sound ; Slick, premium design ; Great value for money

Not very secure fit ; Tips/filters need better storage ; Unimpressive noise isolation

The Rock Jaw Alfa Genus is perfect for those who want more bang for their buck from in-ear headphones, but don’t want to break the bank with more premium cans. The design is classy, the sound is on point, and the filters – however fiddly – make them a...

Rock Jaw Alfa Genus review

 

You probably haven't heard of British company RockJaw, but that doesn't matter one jot. What matters is the quality of the headphones it produces, and the Alfa Genus in-ear buds are truly astonishing for this price.

If you want great-quality sound at an affordable price, and don’t need a headset and remote control, the Alfa Genus are the in-ear headphones for you.

Very Impressive Performance & Price Ratio.

Natural timbre, Detail, 3 Adjustable tuning filters, Cable, Packaging

L/R Markings far too small, no cable cinch, Treble filters too bright

A Fantastic Entry Into the IEM Scene

Sub $100 Tunable IEM
