FXD80close.jpg

If you look close it would appear that the 80 are open/vented in the back vs. the others that look closed/sealed. Those slits with the screens behind them remind me of the FX500/FX700 except that they are more strategically placed around the outside and not directly in the path of wind and external noise. The best bet to have the largest, most open stage with this design over the 60 and 70's closed design.

Found a higher res image of the FXD80 (click for full size)

Apparently it's already being sold through GeekStuff4U.com (source)

That is interesting. So they are only gonna be sold by geeksstuff4u.com. I am guessing around $200-$300 range. It don't seem to be available yet. Next month.

I found out that POS paper on Amazon ships to Australia for only $8 which brings the total price to around $33. I'm very tempted to buy it but I already have a pair of Monster Turbines Miles Davis Tributes on the way which I don't believe could possibly be competed with.

That site is just saying that as they have a relationship with Geek. The usual suspects will have these. Geek could be first though but AJ, AC, Ace of Bicycle and BuyFromJapan(and other ebay sellers) will have them. Like the FXT they should be fairly easy to get for those outside of Japan. One could use Tenso or another forwarding service as well.

Hmm You know what. I own the tributes. You won't believe this but. These FX40 are cleaner and more accurate than those. Better detail and imaging over them. Now these 2 are completely different in sound. The tributes are enjoyable earphones in their own right and I suppose since the FX40 have a different sound signature from those so would be worth trying out from those. The FX40 will compliment those.

 

The MMDTs are enjoyable for quiet listening at your home. There is no way I would wear those out doors. And these FX40 you can take to the gym and use em like a cheapo earphone as they are but. Somehow I have a feeling you are gonna have a not so fresh feeling once you spend so little on these FX40s and then spend so much more on a MMDT..I wouldn't necessarily cancel your order of the MMDTs but I don't know if getting these are gonna help you think you got the best for your money. Lol!

 

They are completely different so you can look at it that way. The MMDTs are more musical and very enjoyable in that manner. The FX40s are detailed and so clean sounding.  The MMDTs have much coloration especially in the mids. These have almost none with a slight tilt on the treble yet with full on bass when the track calls for it.. The JVCs are way faster too.

Group buy for the fxd 80? I'm all ears....dsnuts keep us posted!
post #1329 of 32904
Oh awesome! I was saving all my spare change for the fxt90s. I love jvc stuff. I bought a pair of the fx51s and the depth of stage, treble presence, impact, resolution,and extension were unbelievable for a 5.9 mm micro driver?! The best presentation I'd heard in an iem yet. The only down with these was the bass wasn't up to bass head standards. But these 40s will give me a great sample point of the tech in the 90s. Thanks again Dsnuts

A group buy would be cool but we have to see how much JVC is gonna charge for their newest first. If my theory is correct. These should be very affordable.. JVC is making a statement with these new earphones. They have to be..I keep on saying it. Wait till you guys hear the clarity and detail of these FX40s. Mind boggling don't describe it.

The FXC51s are great iems.. I too am a fan of those. One of the best $25 iems I have ever purchased. That is one of the reasons why I am looking so much forward to the them FXD80s. Micro-hd using carbon nanotubes. Sign me up. Lol! That just sounds impressive.

so I take it that JVC HA-FX40 is cleaner and better at mids, highs, and bass than the ckm77s?

The CKM77 needed solid burn in before they sound as clean as these FX40s does.. I remember how detailed the sound was the first time i heard the CKM77 and on some tracks the highs were bright and sharp.. Full burn in and they become very clean and now sound great for instrument and vocals. The FX40s only cost $21 and they have that level of sound and that was out of box with no burn in at all.. It is mind blowing. Ya and that would be 1/6th the cost of one CKM77..Mind blowing vlenbo. I did say the FX40 are better than the CKM77. I am gonna do an A/B test after the FX40 are fully burned in to see if my initial thoughts were right. Maybe as soon as tomorrow..
