I ended up gifting my CC51P's to a relative, who missed out the lightning deal, and I couldn't see him miss out with as many earphones as I currently own. They're his entry into hi-fi, and even after listening to my FX700's, he loves the CC51's to no end. Mission accomplished. biggrin.gif

UPDATE:

 

 

after hours of listening and playing around with the tips, i'm torn between the medium and large tips.. but i guess i will be using the medium tips as it adds more soundstage than with the large.. there are micro-details which are more present in the medium tips but the mids would sound recessed on some songs but still maintains the quality. the large tips have lesser soundstage and more sharper highs but a less airy than the medium tips but having more a bit upfront mids in it. the medium tips also have more dominant upper mids that makes the vocals recessed. furthermore, the mids in these phones will sound recessed on some songs and i have proven this on the song Jetlag by simple plan at 2:35 and beyond. when i put the medium tips they sound recessed and natasha's vocals almost fading away but your hear the fast slam on the cymbals clearly while on the large tips the mids are slight recessed but doesn't show signs of fading away but the cymbals sound a bit dry and very less air. i don't know if it is really recessed or maybe it really depends on the source. i think my macbook's dac sound really is  recessed on the midrange as i notice this too on my beats pro but nowhere near recessed like on the fx700.

The FX700s are slightly recessed, or at least they take a back seat to the bass/treble. I'm not sure how much playing around w/the tips will help since that's how the spectrum was tuned.

IME playing around with tips will definitely allow for some adjustment to the basic tuning. Smaller tips and a rather loose seal will reduce bass levels and increase mids and treble presence, but you have to be careful about treble sharpness and sibilance. Moreover, the stock tips may not always give you best results, so you may have to try others with different sized openings, e.g. Sony Hybrids. A potentially tedious task, but quite rewarding once you find the sweet spot.

Been listening to my FX700's on and off in the last few days, and I don't find the mids recessed, rather much closer to neutral than not.

I agree, but imo the bass is a bit too much with full seal.

i agree on this too.

 

 

 

 

i think it's the source that makes it recessed when i use my ipod classic it's not recessed to me but okay and i'm using my denon's medium tips.. with the largest tips yes the highs are really sharp but looses the extension..i don't think the smaller tips will work on me and will give me a seal.. i'll try to find the sony tips here in my country .. all i see are the Shure tips being sold here <---  are these also good?

post #1554 of 1763

The Shure tips have a much smaller bore, and are not compatible with the FX700. The Sony hybrids fit fine, however, but I prefer the stock JVC tips, above all.

alright thanks. I just read our PMed messages a month ago and i really like the outcome of these.. i'm slowly being attached to the signature of the jvc and must admit that i've decided to sell my beats now.. but still imho the bass of the beats pro is what i prefer.. they're a tad cleaner than the fx700s and also the crunch on the electric guitars but the jvc surprised me with its timbre on the electric guitars too so they're incomparable to me(maybe this is a driver-to-driver case, small vs big).. other than that i give all to the fx700 and it's really hard to put in words how they sound .. for the first time i've felt the "out of the head feel" on the JVC... and like the ie8, which gives an impression of sounding like a full sized can, the fx700 surpassed that imo and for the first time too i now know what "musical" means... it's musical and also emotional.. but the timbre (sorry i keep mentioning this on my previous posts) is superb whether it'd be the lead or the back-up vocals the fx700 portrays both NATURAL even as a back up vocal only e.g. MLTR's Sleeping Child, Eagles' The Girl from Yesterday, Taylor Swift Mine.

 

 

the separation is very good and air is highly noticeable.

 

I let my friends audition this yesterday at my friend's house and told them that it's more than the beats pro. my friend noticed the timbre after listening to it for a minute and told me he could hear the the slightliest breathes as he listen to acoustic songs, and find it very good to listen at when just relaxing. they were all impressed and became analytical when they listened even though they're just casual listeners and don't care about my stuffs.

Yep the FX700s are very good IEMs. But I still have to give the IE8 the out of head award. I've found myself looking around so many times wearing the IE8, thinking something was happening around me (it was the IE8).

Check for the IE80 which would have more controlled bass, is a bit more upfront. It loses warmth for some clarity. The veil is gone according to reviews I've red on it so far but the IE80s were just recently released so it will be some time to get more impressions. The IE80 would be more relaxed than the FX700 and more smooth. If you are patient wait for the IE10 next year.
