New IEM offering from JVC/Victor: HP-FX300 - Page 6

post #76 of 83
The bass jant71 is most likely referring to is midbass. While these may not have the slam of the hd25s I too would consider them really bassy because of the general midass veil present.

The gx200s are bassy too but it is better layered and provided much better punch. I can't remember it having the same midass veil as fx300s do but its general sound is alot darker. Will keep both meanwhile as the fx300 is not without its merits and possibly buy sa6's if the fabled bass++ port is ever released!

Any tip recommendations for the JVC HA-FX300?

I have tried EU silicone tips (medium size) but they do not always stay in my ears!

Do EU do a kit of tips that I could purchase to experiment with or does anyone have any recommendations of suitable tips?

Hi... I'm new. I just got these on Wednesday after using the JVC Marshmallow buds (FX-33) for over a year. In general, I'm fairly happy, but I'm not sure if it was worth the $40 difference in price. At first, I wasn't very happy with the sound quality, but it's gotten better. The bass sounds a little muffled, but I suppose that it's just that I'm used to the FX-33. Like a lot of others, I'm having trouble getting a good seal... I'm currently using the included memory foam tips, but they're a bit small to provide a good seal.

Is there a good place where you can buy replacements?

On the other hand, though, these are a hell of a lot more comfortable than the FX-33's. I would get tired of wearing those after about an hour - these I can leave in my ear for hours on end.

My Review on Initial Impressions... JVC HA-FX300R

http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f103/j...9/#post5651149

Here's the link, plaintext included above, ---> LINK

On my Head-Fi.org Blog...

And More, A MOD'ding guide... based on the Bi-Metal that is making sound sound super for me!!

Here's the link: ---> LINK

They sound great for Moi, very relaxed, excellent bass presence, treble that is "there!!" especially with the Fabric Driver Diaphragm mod & the appropriate number of needle holes.

BTW, The paper covering the treble nozzles on my HA-FX300R's ripped, prompting me to mod, due to the Right Driver gaining some bloom in brightness... I HAD thought them overly dark and subwoofer-ey, but no more... I've "found" the "hidden" treble!!

Very clear sound, with a resonance that is just beautiful!!!

I like these more than most IEMs I've got, and just look at my signature. I don't pick crap. The worst headphones I've bought "on purpose" are the Grado SR-60 Cans...

They can't even hold a candle to the bass depth or texture I'm getting now from these lil buggers.

Fan effing tastic

Way to go JVC, I want some stateside Victor Bi-Metal 500s... *Impatient*

That wood looks intriguing..., but I'm quite thrilled by my "smooth operator"s as they hare named.

For Tips... Go for The Phonak Audeo PFE Silicone Small or Mediums

These are a pain to get on, but the comfort!!

Here's how:

1) Unroll the Round end until it's inside out.

2) Grasp the Middle of the Tube of the Sleeve,

3) Place at the Edge of the Nozzle of the Bi-Metal Driver

4) Give an Even and SLOW amount of pressure to the expansion of the very Latex-ey material as it expands over the Nozzle.

5) It should PoP on and be secure. You may want to sand paper or finger nail file the Nozzles of the Bi-Metal Diaphragms if you're worried about the Audeo Silicone tips slipping off or not grabbing.

6) Difficulty is a 3 out of 5, but the COMFORT and SEAL is worth it... So is the Musical CrossHarmonic Wiggly effect of this Silicone Tip...

Try it?

Buy It: ---> LINKto Audeoworld Storefront...

There Ya Go, Fun, Phonak, JVC, Bi-Metal, and FTW!

Could We / Should we open an Official Appreciation Thread??

I don't know about you, but that might make it easier to find this Headphone in the Forums. Perhaps a Moderator could rename the Thread??
