Dude, whats the part that you didn't understand that I need the money urgently so I'm forced to sell my favourite headphone?!

 

And his mod is FAR from being simple, dude. I guarantee nobody can replicate this unless you work with acunpucture nedles and I still seriously doubt it wink.gif

Well, actually and after A/B'ing both extensively, the modded XB800 are sounding better than the JVC FXZ200. I have raised the price of the XB800 for 150€ wink.gif

A very confusing comparison with IEMs vs. circumaural...so you are saying the FXZ200 isn't "all that"?

 

I never heard an XB I wanted to own.  The Simon Cowell version is "dreadful, absolutely dreadful".

My mod does wonders Craigster, trust me. It's not the same headphone. Yes, they outperform the FXZ200 at this moment and no, the FXZ200 are awesome.

Pros= Great quality headphones that need an amp to get the bass out, but they have very durable drivers that are able to withstand a crapload of eq without distorting and frequency bleeding.I'm guessing here, but they're probably on the level of the M-100 when amped properly and with better earpads on (both on quality and quantity). 

LPs sound like they have pretty good sub-bass, but I dont have a comparison really. I tune the midbass down a bit, but its not overwhelming.

miow, we're not trying to disbelieve everything that you've said about these headphones, but it just seems to good to be true. I'm finding it hard to believe that some needles can flip out a headphone that reportedly sounds worse than the xb700 stock. You just need to give us some more details on you mod instead of saying that it's nearly impossible for someone else to replicate it unless their in acupuncture. Personally, it just seems too one-sided, but then again, it's hard for me to trust anyone without witnessing it for myself.

 

Also, can you give more details on the sound characteristics between the the XB800s and the FXZ200? Just saying that it sounds better is way too general and subjective a statement to warrant anything for us.

 

There's no need to get on the defensive, although I can see why you are. We just want some more information, that's all beerchug.gif

Hmm... The XB800 "super mod" is simply making 3 thin holes in the pads.... slightly skeptical.
