Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 356

Coq de Combat make sure you buy them from a reliable seller, such as in Japan.  There's a few fakes of the FX500.

 

I listen to the exact same music as you at least 50% of the time as you know, I haven't heard any high-end JVC's yet though.

I was thinking about seyo-shop.com .. They seem to deliver to Sweden as well. You wouldn't recommend the FX500?

Yeah seyo-shop.com seems good, minsann.

 

I keep going back to the Sony EX700 for that music, it's harshness fits like a glove. ;)

 

I've only heard the JVC FXC51, picked it up cheap from amazon.com, it's very good for the price.  I think you'll be safe with the JVC FX500 or FXT-90, unless you want to try a multi BA instead? I like them, something like the Shure SE425 would suit you, or if you really like the doof-doof perhaps the new Sony XBA-4.

Yeah, I've checked out the sonys as well, but they look kind of awkward, not as in looks (looks very good) but as in the feel. I remember trying a friends sony (can't remember the model) with the same kind of housing and it felt a bit awkward. It might actually have been the ex700.. As for the FXT90 I'm a little scared of the housing as well - it looks a little big and my ears are pretty small. Not overly small, I've had no problems with the majority of IEMs I've tried, but the FXT90 looks a bit bigger vertically than most. Besides, I'm a sucker for the wooden house of the FX500/700. :D

 

I think I want to stick with the dynamic drivers on this one, my guilty pleasure is the air-moving, almost seismic, feeling that dynamics are said to be better at. ;)

 

Though I have planned on getting a good set of BAs as well in the future.

Yeah, the wood, birch, brass and carbon components of JVC IEM's are all very unique and attractive, they have a wooden speaker cone as well, not sure if it sounds any good, but they are pioneers in sound technology at least.

 

If you buy the FX500, I'm interested in knowing if it has the energy you're looking for, I know what you're trying to express there but I don't know where to find it lol, just effortless alive sonic energy like the wind right?

Yeah, I think you know what I mean.. :) I'll definitely let you know if the FX500 is what I'm seeking for :)

About the same but the Turbine doesn't seem too bassy because the midrange is more prominent than that of the Soundmagics

I'll use other portable sources as necessary - Sansa Clip, Cube C30, iPod Touch 4, my noisy phone. I have three amps that I swap in and out, too.

There are no plans to review the IE80 at this time.

I lied about getting it done by the end of the year tongue.gif. I thought I'd be done with all of the other sets but some reviews (e.g. Clarity One, ACS T15) have taken a tremendously long time to reach a satisfactory level of thoroughness.

The Xears Coupon code isn't valid anymore... I was just going to buy the Xears XE 200 PRO... sigh...

It was a really great bargain...

post #5339 of 16803

well I never come to this thread...

 

Anyone knows if this foam tip would fit the ety MC5? mines are pretty much disintegrated

 

 

er38_14f.png
ER38-14F
Black Foam Eartips
BUY NOW - $14.00 5 Pairs

 

 

I remember reading once something about the MC5 having a different bore size then the rest of the etys(?)

 

edit: also these ones on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Etymotic-Research-ER4-14F-Replacement-Earphones/dp/B0015WNZD6

they are for the ER4, but they say it fits the HF5, are the HF5 and MC5 about the same size? those doesnt seem to be at ety website.
