The discovery thread.! NEW DannyBai's take on the new Yamaha EPH M200 PG 1769!! - Page 811

Sometimes you just have to take a chance on certain phones, being the FX31, FX40 or something else. That's the only way you're going to find out if you like them or not. If you don't like them, you can always sell them on the classifieds.

I think I would like an FX40 without the problems, also I can't buy from amazon.com since I'm in the EU and the best price shipped for these is ~$45

The FX40s are my favorite budget IEMs, but they are pretty harsh on open box. If you hate sibilance they may be unbearable at first, but after they're burned in they get nice and smooth.

The AD900X hurts the top of my ears after about 20 minutes. It's not that bad until about an hour though, but it's still annoying. Am I the only one with this problem?

+1. They're really harsh on open box, but like you said, they smooth out a lot after burn in.

Yes. Sorry to say that you are a mutant. It's all your fault.

 

Kidding of course. Have you tried the rubber band mod?

 

Edit: they don't slide down my head and onto the top of my ears. Therefore, they are the most comfortable headphones that I have. Like marshmallows on the head. But for those with smaller heads, they may slide down. Hence the rubber band mod.

They don't slide down at all, I think I just have big ears..

Yeap I think this is the only way to know! I'm just trying to find the best option since everyone has different tastes.

Since you enjoy CKN70 do you find their sound anything near them? I can always burn IEMs! ksc75smile.gif

The FX40s do remind me of the CKN70s, but those CKN70s are leaps and bounds above the FX40s. They are some amazing sounding IEMs.

How much do they cost, though?

What's the FXD80 like compared to CKN70?

I had my eye on those. I can't wait to hear your impressions.

Will do. Just don't expect pro level reviews. :P I have the S2, love them. These were voted better than the S2s so I wanted to see just how much better they really are.

I know the feeling. I'm trying to find some really comfortable closed circumaural phones to accompany my Carbo Bassos but having a big head, big ears and glasses is a bad combination.
