JVC HA-FX1X (Xtreme Xplosive) (Impressions)(Hopefully Fan Thread) - Page 6

post #76 of 332

I'm about at 25 hours burn in but I can already hear the difference. The bass calmed down a bit but everything else is much more clear.

I also didn;t like the stock tips so I put some sony hybrids in which gave me even more bass basshead.gif

For one the older CKS70 were reviewed here at headfi and was shoveled under the rug of sorts because there was nothing to too fantastic about them..Those were the prototypes for these CKS77s. The reason why these were at ATs booth at CES was they did a fantastic job with them which brings me to another point these are relatively new there is not much written about them at all. The only info I found was a bunch of translated google reviews from Japanese Amazon and one advertisement that says these newer CKS77s are clearly better than the previous high end CKS90s. I believe this to be true as well. I was considering getting a CKS90s but I have a feeling these CKS77s are actually better than those. I have no idea just how they can actually improve upon these CKS77s to be honest for this type of sound.

 

While I don't have as much experience with earphones like joker does, I go for earphones with sound signatures I prefer. I know bassy iems and I have yet to hear a bassy iem quite like the CKS77s..These are simply a higher end bassy iem to the likes I have never heard before..So ultimately if you like how I described the sound of the CKS77.. I would try one. I will not recommend a dud to a fellow heafier. As far as accessory Jack. That is a solid price and a good place to buy them..They are authorized AT dealers and have a solid reseller rating. I know many a headfiers that have bought stuff from there with no issues. Good luck and let others know on my CKM50 thread about them once you get them. People need to hear these. These are just too good for others not to hear.

 

Sorry heatfan for jacking the thread. Everyone back on topic. The HAFX1X. Burn them pups!!

 

Thanks a lot for the detailed response. I'll reply to this in your other thread so we can keep this one clean.

Just purchased the HA Fx1x Xtreme Xplosive in ear off of amazon.

I mostly listen to dubstep, and techno so mostly electronic music.

So they should be a good fit for me because of the bass

Congrats on making your purchase. I'm still waiting for my pair going ongoing 16 days through a trusted ebay seller. Be sure to report back your findings as will I. Don't forget to burn them in for around 50 hours! biggrin.gif

By "Burning in," Does it mean for me to leave the headphones playing with music for a lot of hours?

When they arrive listen to them straight out of the box, then yes, set them up somewhere out of the way and play music (bass heavy music is good) a little higher volume than you would normally listen sticking a pillow over them or a pair of sock just so you can't hear them. If you read back through the pages in this thread they're meant to benefit greatly from around 50 hours of burn in. It doesn't need to be done all at once. some people like to listen in between, I'll probably do around 10 hours at a time over a few days.

It will be an interesting experience.

Thanks.
And do the high end headphones also require burn in?

Or is it mostly the cheap ones?

Or is it like a general thing on all earphones

It's really personal preference, some people will swear burn in hasn't any effect, others will equally say it is a must for 'all' headphones high/low end. I say let your own ears make a judgement. Burn in is something that will happen over a course of time anyway. By running them hours on end one is merely speeding up the process. 

post #85 of 332

The truth is. There are some headphones that require it but there are some that are sold preburned so no burn needed. These absolutely need a burn. They sound way better after some burn time. All JVC earphones actually sound better after burn. When you listen to them on open box they will sound muddy and most of what you will hear is the boomy bass. I left them playing for a week straight and the transformation will make a believer out of anyone that doesn't believe in burn in.

 

Generally I burn everything I have. It couldn't hurt the sound if anything most report better with burn than not.

Spec Comparison between current/discontinued HAFX1X and the new model due this month:

http://www.jvc.co.uk/compare.php?ids%5B%5D=HA-FX101-E&ids%5B%5D=HA-FX1X-E

 

Can any experts weigh in on whether or not the newer model specs seem to be a downgrade?

Well. Here is the thing about specs. You can't tell if it is a downgrade by numbers unfortunately.  I have seen smaller drivers on earphone put out bigger bass. It has nothing to do with the sound that is emitted it all comes down to the type of tuning that has been done by the manufacturer. For these FX1X I hope they clean up the mids a bit and tighten up the bass and highs a bit and if that happens we will get a very much refined version.

post #89 of 332

Well according to the numbers the old one (FX1X) Seem a little better (Again according to numbers)
Still waiting on my order from Amazon. Ordered the Fx1x (The first version)

I will come back and tell you my experience from them

post #90 of 332

I've also ordered the first version, they still hasn't arrived, I'll be sure to give my thoughts on them.
