Wow ok, well the Yamahas aren't that big on bass either. Its the sub-bass that they really excel at, probably why they sound so amazing with trance music.

Well, I love me my sub bass. I'm actually pretty happy with how the bass is. I am waiting for the highs to smooth out a bit though.

Try using your JVC tips on them. Ditch the stock tips.

Really? I'll give it a shot, but I've never had a pair of IEMs where I liked other tips better than the stock ones.

Wow, I'm using my FX40 tips and it's a HUGE difference. I like how it tames the highs, but I'm not sure about the rest yet. I wanted to go back to the stock tips to A/B, but the holes are ridiculously small. I can't get the tips back on. Never mind, I got it. I like the stock tips better than the tips for the FX40s. Maybe I'll try my friend's FXD80 tips.

The issue with stock tips. The bore is barely enough for the opening on the nozzle. It channels the sound to your ears but doesn't open the sound. Don't know if that makes sense. So a wider bore tip like your stock tips on the JVCs are more ideal for the sound. You will notice more openness of sound or fuller sound. Try it out. 

 

If you just use your JVC tips for a while and then go back to the stock tips you will notice the difference more so.. Try whatever tips you have on hand as long as it is bit wider than the stock tips.

May regret this but ordered the CKN70 yesterday. Only reason I might regret it is I just got the FX40's and these are probably going to make them get no use.

You won't even touch your FX40s anymore :P

Hey D's (or anyone who has the fxz200) what cans (full size or portable ~$300) would you recommend that sound like the fxz200's?  I want to see if I can find this sub woofer sub bass in a can.

All that wasted effort I put into burning them in and was really enjoying them. Lol, I'll probably just give them to the gf.

I need to stop reading this thread after I get the CKN70.

I'm still not done burning my FX40s. I'm going to keep them on the burn until they smooth out.

Not fully done either. I'm at the stage I can use them during the day with no ear fatigue and burn them in overnight.

How (quantitatively and qualitatively) would you rate the bass and sub bass vs. your MH1C?  I love how deep and powerful my MH1C gets without ever sounding bloated in the mid bass or lower mid region, and if the CKN70 can keep up, I'm sold.

The bass quality is definitely an upgrade from the MH1C. As far as quantity goes the MH1C has more, but it's not dramatic. The amount of bass in the MH1Cs gives them a bassy and warm sound signature and the CKN70s definitely don't have that. They're very neutral sounding, the bass is almost a seperate entity. Sort of like have multiple drivers. If you are a basshead then it might not be enough, but if you just like a good amount of bass while have excellent highs and mids then you would be set.

I guess I'll also post my PM here for a wider audience.

 

ATH CKN70, ATH CKS1000, JVC FXZ200, Sony MH1C & Sony XB90EX.

 

I enjoy bass but I don't want it to bleed into any of the other frequencies or overpower the vocals. I'm looking for a IEM that doesn't have any flaws in the highs and mids. I currently own the JVC FX101 and JVC s500. I'm looking for an upgrade in every department to the s500's (bass quantity must at least be on par with s500 stock) excluding soundstage as I don't care for it much.

 

Which of these IEM's match my description the most?
