Thanks, Just a touch of dark humor, lol. I had a blast doing the Photoshop on it. What helped was the right shrunken head and the right photos of IEM's - a pair oriented similar to how they'd look on a head facing just the right direction. I guess picking out the images was as important as the photo editing. 

 

Edited to add: The other idea was to do Princess Leia with her Star Wars hair style altered to look like hairy cans.

OH WOW no kidding! These really have set a new standard. The treble has almost completely smoothed out to reveal a respectably high ceiling. The completely black background and sub bass only adds to the depth of these gems. I wasn't sure how these could improve but just take everything great about them and double down.

I wasn't sure if the CKS77 recommendation could have been bettered but I think I stand corrected. Great job D.

Did the highs mellow out enough for you?

Yes the 40s highs have almost completely smoothed out. Now 85% of the pain I was experiencing is gone and only directly out of iPad with loud vol shows this now. Mine have less than 60 hrs on em.

It's funny but these 40s were smooth out of box and the grew into a slightly painful treble and is now smoothing into the brightest most delicate detailed non fatiguing iem yet.

I should have known these were gonna change for the better. Every single JVC earphone I have had to date needed at least an 80 hours of full burn for them to come out right. The HAFXC51. Sound so harsh out of box, after 100 hours of burn comes out detailed and airy. Still like to hear these once in a while.  The HAFX1X.  The worst sounding bassy earphones I have heard. Well that's not true. It is the new Pioneer CL-721 are the worst. But sounded terribad on open box. All boom and almost no highs and no mids. Lol. After a week of full burn the highs and the mids literally pop out and became proper after.

 

These FX41 and the FX101 both need full on burns for them to sound correct. In fact the FX101 I am still no where near full burn so they have more potential which come to think of it is pretty crazy cuz they sounded fantastic on open box. Lol..

I agree. My HA-FX40 is starting to sound better. The bass is starting to sound more natural, and the highs are toning down.

 

How are you burning these in? Do you just play music through them, and how loud? I am playing them from my mp3 player somewhat louder than the volume I listen with, but not loud enough for them to distort. In the past I let them burn in using a radio Walkman. It has 100 hour battery life. I have usb battery packs I connect to my mp3 players, so I can let them play for many hours in a row. I guess some like to burn them in at normal listening volume, however that might take much too long.

These need an aggressive burn. I have a dedicated burn in station which consist of my ASUS laptop and a creative Xfi external sound card with a 5 hub belkin splitter at the end of it. It is brilliant. I just leave my earphones and headphone on a volume level around 7-8 out of 10.

 

Which is fairly loud using a 5 hour drum n bass compilation. This beats the tard out of them drivers. Pink noise works too but this method for me works perfectly.

Just got the FX40 in recently and noticed something today. After listening to my soundmagic E10's for a good while and switching to these their volume level seems WAY lower than my soundmagics. I'm listening straight from the headphone jack on my PC. I had my PC volume level at about 50% and the media player's volume at about 50% for the soundmagics. Switching to the FX40s I needed to up the player to the max and also up the PC volume to like 75% to get the same volume level in my ears. Are these that much harder to drive or is something off here?

They seem to be average to me so far as being driven. I have more efficient earphones that will drive easier than these but I don't consider these to be harder to drive than most.

Loving the evolution of discoveries here.

How do these compare to the CKM-500 now that people are seeing more change with burn in? I'm comtemplating getting the two jvc or just the AT.

My range of sound used would be jazz, rock, house/funk. No heavy metal or trance, but enjoy quality bass showing from what I listen to, without over shadowing the rest of the range.

 

Also thinking of a cheapish set of cans as well ~$50+/- , any suggestions?

If getting the two jvcs is not far off quality in comparison then I could spend a little more on the cans also.
