Are they just bass monsters or do they also have detailed mids and extended highs?

They are supposed to be pretty incredible. The first triple dynamic IEM. The bass is supposedly insane in quality, thanks to a dedicated subwoofer driver. But because the mid and high drivers are seperate from the subwoofer, bass doesn't affect the quality of the mids and highs. The only reason I personally am hesitant to get them is that they are IEMs.

I say bass experience because I have finally found a universal IEM that has extremely detailed, powerful and DEEP bass that does not drown out or overpower the mids and highs! I'd describe the sound just like Dsnuts is describing it over at the dedicated thread http://www.head-fi.org/t/632273/jvc-ha-fxz-100-200, as a almost 2.1 sound! So in a sense, yes, bass monsters, because they are capable of pumping out bass to the point where it is too much and too powerful for me (never in a million years thought I'd say that lol!), but that is with some serious EQing, and still I don't feel that they get muddy or lose detail in mids or highs. End game universal IEM's for me :)

I'm super excited to get them because they are an IEM (which I tend to favour) that supposedly trumps many fullsized closed cans in imaging and detail. Also the fact its like a high end 2.1 system in your ears.
The longer I stay subbed to that thread the less patient I become.

I will never enjoy IEMs as much as fullsize, particularly because I don't get that same head slamming bass sensation a headphone provides. I also don't feel as comfortable having something sticked so deep inside my ear channel, then if something goes wrong like a sudden volume spike like say my computer BSODs and it somehow would produce a very strong "beeeeeeeeeeep" as a result (there were cases where that could happen with ampless use on some motherboard I had), that is much more damaging thanks to lower sensitivity and deeper stuck inside ear.

What other cans are you deciding on?

V-Moda LP or ATH-WS55/SJ55

 

But I think that I will wait for the Gunmetal LP's price to drop back to 75$ and pick those up when that happens... unless I can find an appealing, durable set of closed full-sized cans that can keep me warm and deliver gobs of bass for around 100$ in Canada.

Would that be bass monsters to audiophiles or bassheads? Secondly is it all sub, or is there mid bass as well?

I'm not sure if I'm really qualified to answer this question, but I'd definitely say it's more of audiophile quality! I've never heard bass like this! It's the first time I've had something actually tickle my eardrums with sub bass excursion! They really need to be listened to to fully understand what they sound like!

Edit: to answer your second question, yes there is midbass also, but no hump and midbass is neither forward nor recessed! Mind you these are only my initial hours of out of the box listening, and according to the fxz100/200 thread it gets even smoother and more balanced with 50-100+ hours of burn in. I have mine on burn in right now so we'll see how they sound in 10h or so, but I guess it's all going to get better from here smily_headphones1.gif

The M100 could be described as a 2.1 sound in your head...Dsnuts said that about the CKS77 (which I have) and the M100 feels pretty similar to that sound as it is IMO...the CKS77 has lightly more mid bass though, but the quality of its bass isnt as good

You might be an even bigger M-100 fan than I am wink_face.gif

Still checking these threads looking for an upgrade to my CKS77's but nothing seems like a pure upgrade yet. Most items I come across can do "x" better than the 77's but do "y" worse.  Sounds like the fxz200 won't satisfy the basshead in me :(

You want to bet? If you want monster sub bass the XB90EX is king. If you want an actual Kelton sub woofer in your earphones the FXZ200 is just that. The best quality bass you will ever put in your ears. I would save your cash and try out a FXZ200. I truly doubt they will disappoint.

 

Just to give you an idea how good this Kelton sub woofer in the FXZ200 is. I just got the CKS1000. The bass end is on another tier above the CKS1000 both in quality and in quantity.  Plus how refined wide deep the sound is..I am gonna say it here. These are the ultimate bass earphones. There is nothing like them.

 

You guys can talk about how deep and pounding your bass goes. But do you have a Kelton sub woofer in your ears? If not then I suggest you try one.

I hear ya DS but, for me it's not all about sub bass. I like my mid bass more, and from the descriptions on the fxz thread it seems as though the mid bass might be a bit mellow.  A few of the guys that "don't like too much bass" said they the fxz's are no problem to listen to... that scares me lol.
