The fact that the 101s compete with the mg7 says more than enough, but i am curious if anyone has both...
A/Bing on both. I forgot how good the SHE9700 are. That being said These new FX101 Definitely show their power when it comes to sound vs the SHE9700.. Between these 2 I would say the sounds are almost dead even a slight edge on the FX101 for a bit more sub bass and extension but it is going to be hard for most to tell. They both have a solid sound in the mids and highs. The FX101 has a very minimal edge in instrument separation and while the sub bass is greater on the FX101 the balance is also a small step better on them as well.
I remember being very impressed with the old SHE9700 and I still am. I would say the differences in the two are minimal at best. Both have excellent bass response and both are equally cheap. Now where the FX101 pulls ahead is bit more defined in the mids and sounds a bit more fuller and deeper over the SHE9700.
The SHE9700 represent the best cheapo Philips has come out with and the new JVCs does show an improvement over the SHE9700 even though the improvements are slight. Plus even though the build on the SHE9700 are solid I am not a fan of the spaghetti cord that is on these.. Would the FX101 be a upgrade over the SHE earphones from Philips. I think so. The SHE9700 being the best one out of the bunch the FX101 does a few things better than them while not a big step in SQ over them it is enough to justify trying them out if any of you guys have the Philips earphones.
