i think, ill stick now to the fx700...

im planing on pairing the fx700 with the ZO personal subwoofer.

 

and im gonna post another impression.

 

 

 

 

(i wanted to use the ZO to the sm3 to boost its sq -bass, highs...but its already on its way to its new home. just a thought.)


this will be interesting, even more bass boost with the JVC?  if the ZO actually improves the bass quality and not just quantity of the JVC's bass, would definitely look into it, but kind of hard to imagine the FX700's needing any more addition in the bass departments.

The fx700s sound pretty good straight out an ipod classic and an old sony cd/mp3 player that I have. Main difference to me is that the sony sounds a bit fuller and thus louder, while the ipod sounds more lean and neutral but still adequate.  Either way, I think, the fx700s would do well in most players as it is.

I roll these with my Clip+ all the time, no problems.  I'm sure the Sony is a great source, but it's a whole lot of mulah... and the JVC's aren't exactly to either.  I'd just enjoy the sound and pocket the money for the time being, no need to go splurge crazy (of course unless you want to!), as the JVC's are quite easy to drive.

the jvc is a good iem for any dap...i believe.

tried using my bro's PSP GO, then put some wav and mp3 tracks in there, compared it to my own ipod classic 160g, and WOW.

the psp is better in dynamic and details(the soundstage is almost in 3d really)...making the ipod sound cold and very neutral.

 

anyway, the jvc fx700 sounds really good with games, using it now with the GOD OF GHOST of SPARTA.

im sold!!!!

 

 

i think, i want a new dap.

probably an N2. or buy my brother's psp go.

 

interesting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

@munkyballz,

to my ears, the fx700 doesnt sound....EXCESSIVE.

i dont believe that it is too much in BASS.

 

its real and right.

natural.

its not something that is tuned to be fun (ie8, copper or mostly...any Dynamic iems)

and, im also thinking of buying a DUAL DYNAMIC iem from JVC....hopefully its a lot better than the RADIUS DDM.

 

im using the ZO for improvement.

not only to my fx700 but also to my dual BA ue700 and the heavenly MX980.

 

i think its an improvement in music experience...not only in BASS department.

 

 

 

 

 

 

@Hi-fi Wigwammer,

maybe bro you should also consider the NANITE N2 as your DAP.

it got a wolfson dac inside, and its expandable in memory.

The MDTs sound far more lively and musical than either of those IMO. If the FX700s sound better than the MDTs, which i'm led to believe they do, then that'll be just great.

I'm waiting patiently for your impressions.  I too thought the MDTs were more enjoyable to listen to than the UM3x, especially for jazz vocals, big band, etc.  However, the MDT's greatest strength - big, powerful, yet reasonably detailed bass - is also its greatest weakness as not all genres can tolerate that level of 'flamboyance'.  For example, the sounds contained in the bass/lower midrange in classical music are more for establishing harmony and for adding depth & texture to the overall sound.  They carry the rhythm too, although in most classical pieces, the task of keeping rhythm is shared throughout the parts.  As such, no single instrument should dominate and the bass need not be so bold and impactful relative to the rest of the spectrum; attack and delay of different instruments vary and must be conveyed convincingly.  A good test is actually solo piano, solo violin (predominantly midrange/upper midrange), a sonata for piano & violin (predominantly midbass>upper midrange), or better, a Shostakovich violin/piano concerto.  Anyway, I digress hugely

 

It's positively reassuring to know that PriceJapan are still shipping despite the recent catastrophe!

Cool.  I will agree that while some have commented that they feel the JVC might have too much bass, I personally don't think the JVC's bass is excessive, not at all... well for about 90% of the time.  There are a few instances where I think there might be a little too much mid bass, whether the bass is natural or not, for my preferences, it seems like it might teeter a bit on the slightly too much at times.  But like I said, 9/10 songs, it's everything including the bass is sublime.

 

Actually interested to see how your experiences will be with the ZO, as it seems like a neat new toy/amp that eventually I might want to check out, as it seems like it would be a peeeerrrfect match up to pair with my DBA's.  If the ZO actually increases the whole quality or enjoyment of the JVC's bass wise, and the rest of the sound spectrum as well, I might definitely have to check one out for myself!

The JVC LOVES the ZO.  I received my JVC's tonight and I've only listened to a few songs but it loves the ZO!

to me, i think, 98% of my tracks are fine with the fx700's bass.

i usually listen to classical, jazz and blues...

 

i tried to compare the sr325is with the fx700 for a single track.

and the sr325is looks like its missing body, it sounds thin, and i instantly missed that natural sound of the fx700.

the fx700 looks like it needed more space for the air, and the instrument to have some real dimension and separation.

 

still, those two are very different.

and i enjoyed both.

 

for the zo, it will arrive next week.

hopefully, they would sound the same to me as the way you experienced them.

 

thanks for being nice bro.beerchug.gif

How much do they stick out? are they ok for sleeping sideways on a pillow?

 

How long is the cable please? 

 

I currently have the Denon C710 which has a very similar shape (it sticks out quite a bit) and also the cable is on the short side.  I really want to improve on those things, of course the sound of the JVC would be in a different league.

 

Many thanks.

I just realized I never answered this. Between 2 and 6 depending on the recordings.

nope. look elsewhere for that case...

dont use this iem for sleeping.

its not safe.

the iem protrudes outside your ear.

half inside covered by your ear, and half outside your ear.

 

anyway, the wire isnt that long, but there is an extension cable inside as accessory.

 

BUT, if youre looking for a serious REAL SOUND QUALITY, dont think twice!
you wont regret owing this pair of Sooooo Gooooooood iem!

I love my CK10 for sleeping on my side, they are the best I have tried for this besides my old RE1; its a tie for comfort but no contest on sound quality.

Depends on the ear size, hehe. I can comfortably sleep with these if I wear them over-ear. As for cable length, I'm pretty sure I've measured and posted it earlier in this thread.
