Got a pair of  FX700 on an impulse-buy last week and I've been listening to it ever since. I was a bit worried after hearing the bass was even bigger than the D2000/D5000!! Fortunately I found the bass to be well controlled and not as bloated as the Denon's.

 

Not much to add, except that I'm very very happy with it. While it doesn't dethrone my JH13, its unique sound signature definitely earns a place in my lineup. The JH has better technical qualities but the FX700 feels livelier.

 

Oh, and one more thing, the colored sound and soundstage of the FX700 definitely reminds me of my DX1000, which I stupidly sold last year rolleyes.gif. I am really glad now that I have a pair of mini-DX1000 back with me biggrin.gif

More on the Sony Hybrid (EPEX10A) tips.....

 

just called my local Sony Store (Milton Keynes) and they keep them in stock. The assistant quoted something like £6.50 per pack - think i'll drive over after work to pick some up. I need some extra tips for my MDTs and RE0s anyway.

Wow.  Ridiculous.  I suppose I am officially a head-fi geek.  (bows)  Thank you, thank you.



 

Neglected a booty call. To each is own.

^ Haha.  Yeah, can't really believe it either.  To be honest I was already on my way home, but I would be lying if I said the thoughts and urge to listen to some tunes with them pushed the accelerator forward rather than the call made me want to U-turn around.

Have a couple of questions that i hope you guys will reply:

How is the comfort of these? do they fit well in the ears? 

As i'm new in the 'audio world' the only and therefore best earbuds i've used is the ones that comes with your iPod :( could i get a quick comparison of these and the iPod-buds?

The JVC's are very comfortable to me.  I take it you've never used IEM's (in ear monitors)?  They fit differently than the Apple ibuds, which are indeed earbuds that sit in the rim of your ear.  IEM's go into your ear canal and may take some getting used to but are very comfortable and generally have great isolation from outside noise.

 

The JVC's are vented IEM's, so even though you are creating an in ear seal, the isolation isn't as good as other non-vented IEM's.  Though the sound of the JVC's more than make up for this.

You can't go wrong going from apple earbuds to the FX700.  The FX700 was my 1st entry into high end IEMs, after using stock phones, & I am completely satisfied.  In comparison to the ibuds, the JVC's are much fuller in overall sound quality, especially in the bass region, better textured, and more detailed.  Honestly, it's not even fair to compare the two b/c the vast majority of phones seen on  this forum would be a major improvement, regardless of what you chose. In all, the difference between the JVC and apples would be like the difference between speakers & headphones.

post #103 of 243

You've all got me interested in these IEMs. Now, two important Q's. 
(1) In direct comparison to Sennheiser IE8, which one is better WRT speed, dynamics?
(2) Can one significantly improve the isolation of these IEMs (beyond the sub-par supplied tips)?
Thx!

The isolation can't be improved further unfortunately, they have open vents which prevent this from happening :)

 

I think the IE8 is faster than this, but this one takes the cake for realism, vocals and instrument performance. They are equal in the bass level for me.

I would add that the JVC's have the best treble I've heard in an IEM.  It's detailed and up front.  I have not heard the IE8's but I have no complaints on speed.  I've never heard them get congested or muddy with complex passages.  Very clear and dynamic with great, great instrument realism; and they're just plain full of awesome.
