There are no plans to replace the FX700 at the moment.  I check JVC's japan website regularly for any signs of updates myself.  The FX700 is here to stay for awhile, so pick up a pair if you can get your hands on some.

^ awesome...thanks for the clarification.  Looks like some FX700 are in my near future :)

For those that have/had both FX700 and FXT90, please explain what the FX700 does better?

I understand the mids on FXT are better. 

 

If one has both IE80 and TF10, is the FX700 too similar and the better choice FXT90?

FX700 has better subbass and a bit more midbass control, I'll say the FX700 has the better bass response by a bit. For the treble, the upper mids/lower treble are flatter on the FXT90 but the FX700 has better treble extension (though not by a lot) and better higher treble detail. I think it terms of just frequency response, they're on par. You pay premium for the wooden driver's timbre and big soundstage, but you compromise ergonomics because of the latter.

Mine are for sale if you're interested. Hate to sell them, truly.

It doesn't seem to be a day and night difference. Hmm, would you choose the FXT's if you already have IE80 and TF10? Maybe to hear more mids?

Someone PMed me saying his friends were disappointed in the IE80s coming from the FXT90s since it lacked the treble detail and was noticeably darker

 

I think the TF10 is the better IEM, but different enough to complement each other well. FXT90s bass seems to have a similar midbass to the IE80s but with a treble close to the TF10 in presence with a more forward midrange. 

 

FXT90 is very in your face though and it will spit out sibilance if it's there in the recording.

Olear were there any qualities in the IE80 that you liked? Did you like its expansive sound stage? The FX700 while not as big as the IE80s sound stage but it is quite huge itself and I always find a big sound stage to be more enveloping and engaging. I also find things to be more noticeable with more room between the instruments and such. While the TF10 has a large sound stage when compared to other BA drivers, its sound presentation is very artificial and not at all convicing. I find the IE80 clearly superior to the TF10 but of course others will see it differently. The TF10 doesn't compare to the FX700 or IE80 at all in sound stage. Also the timbre is to die for. A very realistic presentation that still gives me goosebumps when I do sit down and listen to them. The imaging is very good on the FX700s. Although isolation isn't the best, when in decently quite environments the FX700 really excel at low volume listening and I am not tempted to pump up the volume. But when you want more fun just turn that knob up :).

anyone else have a hard time going back to any other closed IEM after using the FX700's??

 

I attempted to listen to my MTPG's but immediately felt like my ears were being vacuumed up... never had this problem before the fx700's, perhaps I just got used to the incredible openness of the JVC's

I know what you feel. Even when going back to the TF10s things feel pretty closed off in comparison to the IE80/FX700.

I'm really hoping these will make static electricity shocks a thing of the past. Seems like no matter what a 'phone is made of(metal, plastic, ceramic, etc.) I'll get an occasional shock from working in a carpeted building all day. Never tried a wooden one, though. I never get static shocks at home where it's carpeted as well so I don't know what it is about that building. I know isolation isn't the best, but as long as it isn't too far off from the EX1000 it should be fine for work.

I actually like there lack of isolation. Its not as bad as you would think and the fact that they have such good imaging at such low volumes is amazing. The chord is a bit short though and having to use the extension chord makes it too long lol. I wanna hang the designer for this. It should be removable cables that are at least 6 inches longer stock.

You should use the Shure Short Extension, Compliments the length of FX700's cable surprisingly well, once i paired them up, i had no qualms about the cable length for daily use. =)

Where do you get this extension? Is it gold plated or is it nickel? I notice the smaller cable on the FX700 slightly compromises its sound. Quite irritating when I think about it lol.

I got some (don't expect Shure isolation though...) isolation with FX700 using Ts-500 Comply foams (Ts, not T).

Very comfy, and insertion is shallow enough so FX700s sound their best.

Sound wasn't modified when compared to provided large silicon tips.

 

Pros: cables are not detachable, but the strain reliefs are top notch (long and souple) so there shouldn't be any issue. And for the record, the cable is completely tangle-free and yet very souple but a bit short.

Cons: the connector is nothing special, and the provided extension cable is much lower quality than the IEM cable.
