post #3946 of 11259

There is no lack of punch on these at all. Believe me any lover of the low end in any part of the low end will absolutely love how these FXZs sound. I call them the ultimate bass earphones for good reason. Keep reading them impressions more guys should have them soon.

Someone please clarify for me. Are these in-ear units pounding like the XB500s or XB700s?

Yes. But in a completely different realm in sound quality. The FXZ200 does cost more than your average bass in earphones but what you are paying for is an astounding 3 dynamic driver iem and one of them is a carbon driver in a Kelton sub woofer casing. The technology is actually a Kelton sub woofer an industry first in an earphone.

1000

700

 

Completely worth every penny to get one.

How does the m-audio Q40 stack up against the LP or the Pro700MK2 in terms of bass quality and quantity?

I have to agree with every word! Every basshead NEEDS to give the FXZ200's a listen!

I'll volunteer ^_^

then I'll come here and reassure all these skeptics. If for some reason the Z200 doesn't satisfy my basshead needs, then I'll leave head-fi. That's how much faith I have.

I posted a request for help on choosing between the pioneer DJ-200s and anything else as awesome. 

 

I originally posted in here and I couldn't delete this message so could you all read my post in the overhead headphone review forum. 

 

At least I dusted the cobwebs off this forums. 

 

Thanks!

Do these in ear bassie phones have build in limiters?  i just can't imagine the damage they could do to someone.  I'm sure that was the first obvious problem and is fixed, but I'd like to know any safety info before I check them out.  If Somebody turns down a bit crusher or something and your headphones blow your drums out you can very click yank them off and usually no damage is done to the ears. 

 

I've had many situations where if I had in ears I'd be deaf, that is if they don't add safety features unique to the in ear products.

 

As an on stage performer I would be very stoked to come to a gig with my own set and have my own mix.  (when you perceive you are playing better you actually player better...that why I tune my drums to sound nice and take bingers before I play. lol.

 

peace,

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.

 

If you want punchy bass that retains some semblance of clarity, you should go for the WS55. If you just want a huge bass monster, go with the Crossfade LP.

 

Still, if you are also factoring in the Q40 in your list of cans to consider, you may wish to seek advice from some of the bassheads here who have tried/own it. It seems to be a really good can that ticks a lot of the right boxes for bassheads.

I haven't tried the LP, but the Q40 matches up well against the Pro700MK2- comparable in terms of quantity and quality.  Both are among the best basshead cans available.

This, if quantity is a big concern while you still want a little better quality than typical other big basshead options, these 2 are great options. The biggest difference between these are probably in the highs, the PRO700MK2 seems to have a bit more forward lower-midrange but a lot less presence in the highs while Q40 is a bit more evenly balanced in the mids & highs.

 

PRO700MK2:

 

 

 

Q40:

 

 

To some1 unexperienced reading graphs it may look like that Q40 would be bassier but it's not the case, it's about the same measuring quantity wise. The stitched line in the PRO700MK2 graph should actually be drawn about 3dB lower to get an accurate view (because it should be compared against the "average frequency amplitude" and PRO700MK2s highrange dips quite a bit whereas that avg amplitude is a bit lower than that) and then they both measure around 7~8dB bass bump.

I very much want to try them, but the place I would buy them doesn't accept returns.  I don't think they would do much more for me from a bass perspective that I am already getting from my M-100 right now.  In fact, I may settle in with them for awhile.  They are great.

Problem I have had in the past with IEMs is they don't stay in well and I have to continually push them in. How are these and that regard?
