Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 367

FXT90, cons: n/a.
Wow, that really speaks for those IEMs.

Inks probably also got lucky with his set. Many fxt90 users have reported driver flex.
post #5492 of 16802

Yup its the driver flex in the FXT90 that worries me as well. It could be the case that only those who had experienced driver flex actually spoke out and it therefore seems that its a common problem. Will be hoping to hear more about non-driver flex cases!

My first pair had driver flex issues on one side, but the same side also experienced diminished sound, right out of the box. My replacement unit, however, experienced no driver flex at all, on either side. I purchased mine through buyfromjapan via eBay, as a few others had in the official FXT90 appreciation thread.

You guys should keep a good eye on the CES 2012 for Monster and Meelectronics for today (Monster) and tomorrow (Monster and Meelectronics). They have some very exciting OEMs and IEMs coming up this year.

Anybody know if ACS is original manufacturer of T15? Dynamic Ear Company is offering exactly same in-ears, they are partners of ACS and I have info from local shop that they are original manufacturer.

Here's the link to keep an eye on the event:

Great review and gread IEM.cool.gif
 
At the moment, the best universal IEM in my taste; I could not think to use an with less bass.
 
Even if i have not yet heard, i do not think that i can use with satisfaction a great IEM as 272, for example, just for the lack of bass.
 
Of course, if the FTXT90 had the same appearance of Beyerdynamic 101 (i.e.), it would be even better, but i am not sure complain of disfigurement, when i think of the appearance and ergonomics of 262-272 or GR7 or Tandem. biggrin.gif
 
Who knows what will be still in time, and  who knows that with the time perhaps cannot nearing the esoteric world of 'Custom', but this is another speech. 
 
Thank you  again. wink.gif

I have no driver flex either on my FXT90's and got them from the same seller on ebay, buyfromjapan.

I do get driver flex with my pair, but it is slight. People shouldn't worry about driver flex as nothing proves it will kill the drivers and will most likely not from what I know. I believe the FXT90 has flex because of the thin filters and positioning of the drivers. Again nothing to complain about in my book, all it means is a little bit of noise when you insert them. Stuff like the Xears will be ones to worry about as the noise is louder and bothersome. 

 

Nice reviews joker. I think the FXT90s main strengths are its imaging and treble resolution/transparency.   Even the likes of the GR07 and EX600 fall behind in this. Add to that a fun bass hump and you have an aggressive yet Hifi sound.

I got my Xeport 5010-8. They look very similar to the Meelectronics SP51. The Sound Signature.......very interesting. The first aspect I noticed was the breathing space aka Soundstage/Headstage. It's very open and even moreso than my GR06. It's also darker than my GR06, but not too much. In comparison to the SP51, well let's say it has nothing on the Xeport 5010-8. Everything out of the box is just far better with the Gunmetal Plate. I'll compare with the Extreme Bass plate and Balanced Plate shortly.

I've had mine for a few days now with no driver flex at all.  I wouldn't base getting them on driver flex because what joker said was spot on about the FXT90, I love them and now I'm listening to them more than my TF10's which is my favorite IEM.

post #5502 of 16802

I used my Cowon J3 and used the JetEffect 3.0. for the Xeport 5010-8

 

80 Hz-Wide: 0db

 

220 Hz-Wide: 0db

 

1.4 KHz-Wide: +4db

 

4.1 KHz-Wide: +4db

 

6.9 KHz-Wide: +4db

 

BBE: 9

 

Mach3Bass: Off

 

3D Surround: Off

 

MP Enhance: On

 

Stereo Enhance: 6

 

Reverb: Off

 

Volume Level: 18

 

Port: Any will apply. Similar outcomes with minor differences. The obvious minor differences.

When using the Xeport 5010-8, I advise you use the Sony Hybrid tips. It's a bit uncomfortable using the stock. Even the Monster Gel Tips will do.

Updated the downloadable chart on the front page, for anyone who wants to play with the numbers.

I don't think I listened to them pre-burn-in. Rarely do these days.

There's a couple of sets I couldn't find much fault with (e.g. MEElec A151) - doesn't make them bulletproof but the FXT90 is definitely better than most.

 

I actually got to try two different pairs of the FXT90 and neither had levels of flex I'd consider significant. I do get to listen to a lot of cheaper in-ears that have terrible flex (like the Xears sets Inks mentioned and the Maximo iM-590) so I'm hardly shocked or offended by it these days.

It's the same product.

Glad you like them! I can definitely see them being 'the one' for many listeners with that sound signature.

Thanks, and I agree. The EX600 is a strange beast, like the EX1000, because it lacks the centered stage of the FXT90 and many other in-ears and sounds more like a headphone when it comes to imaging, etc. 

post #5505 of 16802

Upgraditis and my pay check isn't helping either.

I have an EX600 and an hf5 and I would like something that is a significant upgrade but I'm ruling out the EX1000 and ER-4.

I'm kinda leaning to something neutral or close to neutral, and I think I prefer the fast, hi-res sound of the hf5 to the EX600. Works great for power/speed metal.

Any suggestions?
