Ah you finally got it, how does the E12 pair up with S500?

I got my C&C BH and loving the clarity this things puts out with the S500.

I have been blasting my drum n bass for a solid 48 hours. I will report back tomorrow if I get a chance to hear them..

 

Lol !    ...no intentions to !   ...them CKN70 are just too good not to share, I was just giving master toll, the trogan horse ...just so that he'll think it's safe to enjoy his new toy very_evil_smiley.gif

 

...looking forward to your impression of them CKN70 with some burn in !   ...mine have changed into something I'm still trying to figure out, ie: lacking the words to describe them.

You've made the right decision, buddy, trust me !

 

The MH1C are very, very good for what they cost but they don't hold a candle to the CKN70, I feel the bass level of the CKN70 are not lacking either, your attention is so drawn towards the mids that you'll hardly notice the bass ...play something that is mainly bass and you will know what I mean.

 

It is as Dsnuts has said earlier, it seems as if the iems knows when there are mids that will mash with the bass so it lessen the bass such that the mids remain crystal clear but when it is purely bass, boy does it have impact ! 

 

...and while all this is happening, the trebles are NOT just sitting on the fence behind minding their own business, instead they are running round and round the both of them, hitting here and there, totally involved. ...what a glorious sound !!!

I'm SO jealous !   

 

...got to wait til mid Mar in this region for our E12 !!!   ...where did they say they were made in again ?

 

Bet that AD900X and E12 match is just heavenly !

TBH i am much more impress with new micro drivers than the traditional dynamic type. The cost in making them seems to be relatively cheaper and they sound many times as good as the old tech.

Welp, with the stock tips i wasn't completely floored by them. I was expecting to be utterly mind blown by it especially in the bass department, but sadly i wasn't. This made me realized 2 things, 1st thing is straight outta my ipod classic there is not enough power to drive them to their full potential (though it drives them adequately), 2nd the lackluster generic stock tips holds them back as well. Just like the stock tips for the ATH CKNs, JVC went the lazy route and seems to have just tossed the same stock tips used for FX40/ FX101s, etc in, unlike the custom built ones for their FXD line. 

 

Did you burn them in ? ...They really... (Click to show)

...are so 2012 ! biggrin.gif

 

The CKN70 will totally get you "mind-blown" almost straight out of the box !

...No need DAC, AMP, Tip rolling, Thread trolling...

 

 

 

 

 

While i was tip rolling, the change in bass quality and quantity was very noticeable, some tips makes them almost "WOOFER" level and some made them just borderline basshead level. But thank god my seller hooked me up with a free set of Mee tips as well, which is much MUCH better than the stock ones provided by JVC. I got 2 different size double flanges, that works pretty well. Still picking out the best tips, though the MH1C med tips seems to bring the bass out the most, while the mids/ etc kinda suffers a bit, more on this later.

 

The best tip for these that I have found are the ATH tips.... (Click to show)

...with the CKN70 still attached to them ! biggrin.gif

 

...Only time I hear the woofer with these FXZ200 was when my "poor puppy" got hungry !

 

 

 

So yeah, what really took me by surprise was the built of these FXZs.  I expected the housing to be pretty heavy, but it wasn't. The hosing is of a good size albeit kinda bulky, similar to that of the FX3Xs but is surprisingly light as a feather. Kinda disappointed that JVC just put a really thin cloth mesh to over the driver hole, even more thin than whats used on cheaper FX lines, which makes it feel like it can come off easily.  haha

 

You're kidding me right ? the FXZ200 were like ... (Click to show)

 

dumbbell for exercising my ears everytime I wear them !   ...soon, you'll be able to show off the ripling biceps on your ears for wear them ! 

 

Did I mentioned that CKN70 are lightweight as a feather ?

 

 

 

 

The highs and mids are lovely on these, soundstage is not huge but good enough. soundstage is crazy NICE!!! And i am still in search of them WOOFERS.........................continues to tip roll. LoL

 

Many have reported that these don't have much of a soundstage... (Click to show)

 

 ...they said that with these, the sounds is all inside your head instead of outside.

LOL, bro....you're not trying to say you got a big head, right ? biggrin.gif

 

...did I mentioned that the CKN70 has got really nice stage in terms of not just width and depth, but height as well   ...a 3D sound.

 

 

 

 

Enjoy them FXZ200, bro  ...they are my favourite triple drivers iem so last year's !  wink.gif

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

LOL, having fun with a little trolling of my own !    ...you bring out the trolling beast in me ! evil_smiley.gif

Nah !   ...just fooling around with sfw ! tongue.gif

 

But seriously, these FXZs belongs in the "must have" category. For me, they're the first with a new kind of "full spectrum" sound which defines the old technology from the new.
