JVC HA-FXT90 Appreciation Thread [User-Info/Buying Guide/Reviews on Page 1] - Page 135

post #2011 of 2040

Has anyone here heard the PFE 232? I'm wondering if it would be a good upgrade over the fxt90.

post #2012 of 2040

Just ordered these as my first IEMs. Should arrive within the next 2 weeks.

For your first iem, you've made a very good choice.

IEM vs. full size? Probably tough to compare properly, but I too am curious.

 What were you expecting? 2 years is more than enough for us, head-fi community as we generally don't keep an iem for such a long time :D

You have a point *nods at my signature*, but still...some people prefer to buy a product they expect to have last for quite a while. IMO, two years is actually pretty good for a headphone. I find the cable always gives out pretty quickly, which is part of the reason why I always stuck with hyper-cheap products. If I had spent full price on the T90s when they first came out, and they died within two years, I would have been hella angry.

 

But, I've got a ton of headphones to play around with (including a 2nd pair of T90s :D), so it's not an issue. Woohoo!

How well do the HA-FTX90s pair with the iBasso DX90?  I've read here that the DX50 loses a lot of its low end when driving 12-ohm IEMs.  Is the DX90 prone to this, too, or is that not an issue with this model?

Sound is too mid forward and with very thick timbre, can be piercing at times. My fxt90 is up for sale.

Well, this just shows not all iems are suitable for everyone. Hope you find a suitable replacement! smily_headphones1.gif

I have my FXT90s for more than half a year now. alternating with my other iems, every time I put them on it never ceases to put a smile on my face.

My preferred music are rock and metal but I do listen to other genres from time to time.

This is me, right here (except the FXT90s are my only IEMs, currently).  I absolutely love these things and aside from picking up a pair of RE-400 Waterlines for a more accurate sound signature, I can't see why I'd need much else.  The FXT90s are pretty spectacular for rock and metal.

Guys is there a way to understand if these iems are fake or not?

I have received them today but without all the package and transport case, and now I have the doubt they are fake.
