The discovery thread.! NEW DannyBai's take on the new Yamaha EPH M200 PG 1769!! - Page 234

Exactly it's not a new design so it's likely a remake. Even the marketing of it is the same words used when promoting the FX700.

i just got the XB90EX to day shiped from hong kong to mexico lol i was worried about that but everything cool and they arrived in 14 days... 

Omg omg these sound like nothing else!!! i never tought someone could make a earphone with deep bass and also nice sound, mid bass its not overpowered, mids and highs i cant say anything until they pass the 150 burn in period ill have to wait... but they dont sound bad out of the box, at all im very happy lol im wondering if they could sound better with an small amp with bass boost like fiio e5 - e11 or... zo2.. someone have tried this? any expierence with amps its big difference to have one? my source its ipod touch 4g with flac files n app player

Well rickdohc, I'm actually having a tough time getting a good seal with the M4 (over ear or straight). It's smaller and more awkward shaped for my inner-ear than expected. But I'm giving it a good burn-in now, so we will see. The cheaper  FX40 sounded way better out of the box to my ears than the M4. M4 does had decent clarity, and seemingly deep bass, but the sound is way thinner than the D80 D70 and I think FX40 too. We'll see after 50 hours of burn-in.

I liked the M1-3 better than the M4.
Non of them really compares to the FXD series IMO.

The mids are clean n full on the FX3X and the bass just as brawny as the FX1X but again cleaner and more controlled in this area over them.. Unfortunately these also have the similar peakiness in the upper mids lower highs that are also on the FX1X..If they didn't bother you much on the FX1X these will certainly not be worse than what was on the FX1X.

 

Now are they worth the money? I would grab the  Audio Technica ATH-CKM500 over these for about the same cost. While the CKM500s are not about big bass. They do offer solid bass impact and sub bass but has one of the best SQs for under $100 earphones to date. The differences in the highs and mids alone on the CKM500 are worth the cost of admission. Imagery and detail is on another level over over the FX3X. The FX3X is a good earphone and I am glad I got them but in all honesty for me at least they aren't a leap in sound over my CKS77.

 

These are more of a side grade than a clear upgrade.  But if bass earphones are your cup o tea these are easily one of the top bass earphones I have heard to date and already beat up on my MMDTs and the MG7s. If these didn't have this peaky flaw in the sounds these would be tops imo but this flaw I am trying to beat out of them. We will see. To get a good idea of how these sound. Throw on your FX1X and hear them now imagine that entire sound cleaned up and you will get a good idea of how these sound.

Can you recommend the best online store with the best price for this earphone FX3X? thank you :)

Don't buy from the seller under "artistic_life" though, cuz he sells defective non grade-A products from what i have read. His prices are always the lowest and labels them as genuine so it's really tempting.......

But but it looks so much more sexy!!! Saw someone that posted with these newer red FX3Xs as their avatar, and thought they shopped in those colors or something, but looks like JVC is giving these a new paint job and trying to sell more of them.  I wonder if they sound the same as the old FX3Xs cuz they sure are a lot more $$$. 

 

 

The general rule is that sellers from China and Hong Kong are more suspect for selling fakes, especially when it is shipped from China so be careful on ebay. There are literally knockoffs for everything it seems, even the cheapo FX101s has fakes that look exactly the same.

Is what I said!

Yea perhaps they do offer a better sound quality or something?
The price is much higher!

Recoloring them and reselling them is actually a brilliant idea. I reread what I wrote about them when I first got them The FX3X is an excellent bass earphone and I can tell you guys those peaks are much less detectable if not completely gone from my earphones now.. While I still say the XB90EX is the bass kings those FX3X are excellent for the cost. Ebay is where I bought mine and it looks like the X3X-new colors on ebay are the only place to get them... Considering the CKS77 cost $95 or so and I deem these X3X a side grade to them. The new colors while costing more. Is worth the price. Especially now that they have a nice sexy new color to them. The all black is nice too.

 

But for a bit more you can get the monsters that are the XB90EX..Choices, choices.

At what level volume would be optimal for hearing the best possible detail with the fx40s??
post #3508 of 27217

Good question. I think it depends on how much you have burned in your FX40. On open box you can have them on lower volumes to hear great detail. As you burn them in the the sound fills out much more you can turn up the volume more toward medium to medium loudish levels. In general it is not a good idea to listen to you music absolutely loud but my pair now I can turn it up to medium louder levels and they sound fantastic.. Medium volume levels is your answer.

Thank you my good sir. Ive got about 3 hours burn in and have them around the halfway mark. I usually listen about 70-75% with my 101s. I cant wait until these hit the 100-200 hour burn mark
post #3510 of 27217

I think I have seen the sony's go for like $100 if I am not mistaken, so for the prices JVC is asking for them "newer" FX3X's I would go with the sonys, or just buy their old stock for cheaper. ha  Sometimes sexiness has to be compromised for the greater good. heeeee  beerchug.gif
