Preliminary FXZ200 Impressions

Posted

Pros: Alas! A basshead's IEM, brought justice!

Cons: Yet another Frankenstein-esque design, which I can live with, but can't say I prefer to.

Disclaimer #1: In my experience, I've come to discover that the term basshead is tossed around very loosely, and (more often than not) carries a negative connotation, when that need not be the case.

Pros: Great fit (with sony hybrid tips)..Rich, deep bass...excellent clarity across the board

Let gets started a little background i have tried over 20 dedicated bass head iem's ranging from the well know Future Sonic Atrios to the lesser priced Skull candy 50/50. I know hardly should be able to compare the two but everyone's journey starts somewhere. Anyway it has to be said these are the best bass heavy iem i have heard to date hopefully this review will shed some light on why so lets get in to it.    For arguments sake we will start with my main gripes to get them out of the way:   COMFORT: These have to be one of the most uncomfortable earphones without the correct tips, in fact i was about to dispose of them had it of not been for some...
