thanks

for looking


I think it is pretty obvious yours are fake :(

 

Where you bought them from? eBay?

Fake. For sure. And I believe they are not made in China. It should say made in Japan. The real FX-500 and FX-700 are beauties. The wood looks impeccable. You won't find cracks between the plastic and wooden part. They fit seamlessly.

got ripped off too

it taught me a lesson

^^No, it is not from ebay. I bought these headphones from the person I know. Are you sure they are fake?

They are of high-quality assembling, the sound is not bad, there is bass. What somewhat worries me is that I don't have the headphones case and it is written on the box: 'Made in Japan', but on the cable written 'China'. http://i49.tinypic.com/2iqcwf6.jpg

 

Can someone who has the same headphones put here cable photo. As I understand it should be written 'Japan' on it?

Yes, it should be written as Japan there. Look at the wood, you really need to see real FX series to know how pretty it is. Yours look shoddy. And one more thing, the FX-500 on the cable should not be bright at all. It should be a darker silver. Read this if you still don't trust me:

http://www.seyo-shop.com/product.php?productid=15195&cat=0&page=1

 

The link I gave will be 100% real. Shipped from Japan directly. And I believe the FX-500 price is around 120-150. I wouldn't trust a deal that looks too good, especially the ebay seller in the link.

I was about to buy from seyo-shop when I saw something Russian on their website. Not meaning to be racist but I have trouble trusting anything in the internet in Russian. Is there really Russian on that website or has my internet connection/browser been compromised?

You mean on the language selection part, top right-ish? That's probably just there so that Russian people know how to switch languages. If you switch the language to Russian, you'll see "Select language" in English. It's same for most multilingual websites.

The shop is based in Osaka, Japan, I think. I bought my fx-700 from the shop, after seeing Shigzeo's recommendation on touchmyapps.com.

post #1032 of 1086

I can definitely recommend Seyo. They are the real deal and very good customer service. Same for Bluetin .

post #1033 of 1086

I just got my FX500 from Seyo -- very quick from Japan to NZ.  However, I have a question.

 

Straight out of the box, with decored olives, I'm noticing the bass, yes, but also some harshness on the trebles, with distortion at the top.  (It's worse with the stock tips, and with the RE0 biflanges.)  It's not all the time, but on enough tracks to worry me.  Now, granted, I've been using these for a few hours at most, but is this the kind of thing that burn in will take care of, or should I EQ it out?

 

I'm using a Cowon J3, unamped.

post #1034 of 1086

This has been commonly reported and burn-in will tame that harshness, but a safer bet will be a foam mod. 

post #1035 of 1086

Thanks for the quick reply, Ink!  How would a foam mod work?  If it involves opening the housing, just how do I do that?
