Hi again |joker|, I'm considering advancing to a more analytical, but still aggressive signature ala the Brainwavz B2. Moving on from the FXT90, how would you describe the transition from the coloredness and musicality of the 90 to the B2's? Do you think the two would compliment each other quite well?
I switch back and forth between FXT90's and Fischer DBA-02's every week or two. Joker has done his usual excellent job succinctly describing the differences, although I find the midrange to be wonderful and similarly forward on both. I notice soundstage and instrument separation a little more on the Fischers, while the JVC's are a bit more cohesive.
It takes me a few tracks to get used to the different signatures: deeper, more impactful bass on the JVC's; astonishing clarity, detail and transparency with the Fischers. Both are extremely enjoyable and I'm glad to have them, but could live with either one for a long time (used DBA-02's exclusively for 1.5 years). I've experimented with tips on each to reduce those differences (short double flange from M11+ on the JVC's, Shure double flange - like Ety triples with the small end removed - on the Fischers).
