JVC HA-FXT90 Appreciation Thread [User-Info/Buying Guide/Reviews on Page 1] - Page 137

post #2041 of 2045

I am a few years behind the hype train, but I am on it now. I don't normally like and use IEMs, but for the FXT90s I will make an exception.

So, I bought a pair from the Chinese sellers on eBay... I was really curious for $50 shipped.

 

Most of the time I find them very punchy, fun and up-front but they can also be a little too shrill or piercing with some tracks.

 

I am actually enjoying them. They sound as described but I wish I had a retail version to compare them to.

Going from experience with two certified pairs, there is some treble harshness initially. After 25 hours they start to mellow. It takes about 100 hours of burn in for full maturity. They are forward sounding IEMs. They are not shy at any frequency range.

I've definitely got at least 25 hours on them now and I get the feeling that they have mellowed.

 

I also bought some MEElec tips and first tried the bi-flanges, as recommended, but I think I prefer the larger tri-flanges. I find them more comfortable. I think they sound better too but that might just be the increase in bass from a better seal; I'm not sure how they're effecting the sound otherwise.

 

I quite enjoy them. There is definitely driver flex but I've heard that to be an issue with retail versions as well and I get a bit of hiss from my desktop amp as well as some microphonics when I'm not listening loud enough to drown it out. I'm satisfied for $50 even if they're fakes... I messaged the seller on eBay and this is the response I received,

 

"this is OEM item maybe it have little bit different with retail version and we had sold many without problem."
