The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 94

post #1396 of 32910

Got these in today, and the first word I would use to describe these babies is "clean". Good rumbly bass and sparkly treble, but as others have mentioned, vocals can appear pretty distant or recessed, and distorted guitars don't have as much of a "vomp" factor. I haven't experienced any of the fatigue of the treble, but I think I'm just not as sensitive (not sounding good, I'm 21!). I'm about to A/B these with the FXT90 soon.

 

Definitely the best $20 I've spent on audio thus far. I'm actually thinking of giving these to my Dad; he has minor hearing loss, and he liked my FXT90's for the detail that he isn't able to get out of his bassy sennheisers. I think these would be perfect for him, ALSO because he's a very value-minded person. :)

No..If you guys like how these FX40 sound. The CKM500 is a much more refined earphone with some of the best highs and mids I have heard in any earphone to date. The FX40 is a fantastic sounding earphone and I would put the sound value at around $80-$100 or so some might even give them a higher value..

 

The CKM500 for being $80-$100 earphones sound more closer to a $150-$200 sound value wise for earphones. Everything on the CKM500 are more dynamic and richer/fuller/smoother/wider/deeper..Just simply more dynamic. That being said what is on the FX40 are special in their own right.

 

You guys that just got these. What I say.. Every single one of you guys will be surprised. Did I not? And so far I think everyone has been..If you guys thought the previous cheapos sounded great. Wait till you guys hear these.  I guarantee if you guys let these burn in and get used to how clean this sound is you are gonna find out just how mediocre and not so clean other earphones are gonna sound including much more expensive ones..

 

Now if you guys want a fantastic sounding higher end earphone the CKM500.  But I would still buy a FX40 just for kicks and to use them like cheapos or give these away to loved ones... The CKM500 do have a better more refined sound but value wise. Lol! The one thing the FX40 does do better is they have less microphonics over the CKM500.

So far burn in has cleaned up the highs. Mids are opening up. I heard some graininess to the sub bass on open box. Thats gone now too.  Burn in them earphones like no tomarrow. mids are improving with burn.

Got my pair of FX40's last night.

Listened for about 5 hours before making myself go to sleep.

HOLY CR@PAMANOLY NUTSMAN!

These are amazing right out of the box.

They do need some burn in.... a little ssss'y at times.

Tried them on several amps..... so far the O2 is the only one I like.

Fiio E5 did nothing for them, and the A10 actually made them sound worse.

Straight out of a Sansa Fuze and ClipZip sounded awesome!

These are going to be wonderful when they mature.

Great find !

These make a great back up pair to the ckm500. Glad your diggin on em BG. See I dont just make this stuff up! Lol..I think my pair is still maturing at over 70 hours now .   Over night burn does the job again.

 

I was so impressed with these I decided to try out JVCs other new earphone the HAFX101. Will report back. Somehow I  cant see how those would be better than the fx40.

I'm curious about these as I think they went to a smaller driver on these from the HAFX1Xs. Hopefully that will pull the bass back to just a strong level. Dsnuts do you ever stop?

Dsnuts!! HURRY MY FRIEND!!  Don't let these get by>>.

These are dynamic/BA drivers hybrids at this crazy price. I have mine ordered, of course.

ericp10, have you heard these before or has someone reviewed them? Or are the specs special and promising?

My passion for sound runs deep my friend. Lol..These sound nothing like a HAFX1X..The bass is good not bass head level but solid and the sub bass is strong on these too. That carbon material seems to do well in all regions of sound. The sub bass is actually very good for this price.

Well I just read this. http://www.head-fi.org/t/600820/scosche-iem856md-balanced-armature-and-dynamic-driver-hybrid-universal-iem Seems to be the first real take on these. They sound like a good idea but from what dosley here says these don't have the best BA or dynamic for bass end that he has heard but I can understand that. It is interesting to see these dual or triple ba n dynamic combos..Will wait to hear what you say about them eric. I think the street prices on these should hover around that price give or take $10- $20. Though I do have to admit this is very interesting having both a BA and a Dynamic for bass.

I have no need for another IEM, especially if the FX40 is that good. I'll send you my pair as a thank you when I get a quick listen to it.
