Would be cool if there was a possibility to run all your windows sound through Isone. That way you could get the effect listening through youtube or spotify or whatever else source available.
Anyone know if this is possible?
No problem The FXD70 and 80 are pretty similar, but the 70 have better bass impact (even though the graph show them as having 8 dB or so less bass) and a slightly fuller more coherent presentation with little less air. I agree that FXD series lack texture in the bass but it's faster and more solid than FXH which works well with fast well produced music, and that at times you can get a slightly metallic tinge. That slightly steely timbre works great with synth and well...
I'm sitting here listening to the FXD70 and FXH30 side by side and I can't really agree. At all. FXH30 got a lot more bloom in the bass but the bass is not especially tight or detailed. Lots of rumble but not much solidity. The mids are fuller but slightly muffled and affected by bass bleed and at most times less transparent. Detail is close but because of the advantage of having higher clarity, the detail is easier to spot with the FXD70. FXD70 sounds more precise,...
JVC FXD70 with a deep over ear fit and these cheap eartips http://www.ebay.com/itm/black-Large-Medium-Small-Size-Memory-Foam-Tips-Eartips-for-most-earbuds-/171968149823?hash=item280a19b93f:g:~uwAAOSwAYtWKvFmDeep bass is above neutral but fast and controlled. The drivers are capable of some fantastic speed, clarity and detail for this price and still have a very exciting sound. Great for metal.Amazing build quality and really good isolation. Really deep fit though.
Two possible explanations as I see it. Either it's mediocre with the headphones at the meet or it hasn't gained enough interest/hype before the meet so people don't take notice what amp is driving the cans. People at the Audeze booth are there to listen to the Audeze's, not an obscure European amp. Or a combination.
How anybody could manage to draw strong conclusions given meet conditions is another question.As much as I think meets is a great idea and love reading meet comparisons, the loud environment is poor for evaluating gear connected to non isolating headphones so I take it with a great deal of salt.
I love this thread and I love eric65. Not matter how much crap is flung in your direction you come back with the same undiminished enthusiasm, relentless confidence and a certain continental understated humour written in quirky English.
Gotta love dem French. I would have guessed head-fi's trigger happy mods would have banned you by now but I'm glad that you are going strong, same as the Sorbothane-guy.
