Review: Fischer Audio FA-003 - a neutral champ! - Page 189

How well do these scale with amplification? Considering getting a O2 or E12 for them.

post #2822 of 2996

I will listen to it tomorrow and report back but from memory amp was a necessity.

Just got my fa-003 back from girlfriend. She did a great smell-in. While she had them I was listening to modded fostex T50RP. And my impressions are that Fa-003 are really holographic. They've got depth that isn't quite there with T50RP. Also FA-003 have more upper mids which is a bit fatiguing and more bass which is less textured/controlled. T50RP have wider soundstage. So in short I'd say FA-003 are more 'fun' sounding, while T50RP are more accurate.. I'm running both from Yulong D100 > O2.

Hi guys,

 

 

I also ordered the Jaycars. Can you tell me how long it takes for them to get to you?(living in europe) also will they send you an email when they ship it?

Sent some email to their customer service but no reaction so far.

 

Also after reading over 100 posts on this and other threads I couldnt ultimately resist going for the Jaycar.

As I understood it..this is the same as the FA003 and HM5.

 

The HM5/FA003 are called bang for the bang champs and the Jaycars are 50% cheaper.Does this mean than the jaycars are the biggest bang for the bucks headphones around?

Any downsides of the HM5/FA003?

How does the owners of HM5/FA003 findthat the Jaycars are so much cheaper and basically the same?

^ You will receive mail when they ship it, but sometime it takes few weeks. Jaycars are the biggest bang for the buck and you will not be disapointed.

Nice how do you like them?

post #2834 of 2996
Definitely time for some cables.

I might need to remove the "recessed" female sockets from these units, and replace them with the "standard" female sockets I've used on some of my other cans:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90


But we will see how I go. Has anyone tried this?

Also, RE: angeld pads. I'd love to try some also. Would "Mad dog" pads suit the FA003? Or would they not fit..
post #2835 of 2996

The recessed female sockets in the FA-003 are fine, just need the correct male jack to fit in with the right amount of diameter thickness.
