I really like the musical warm sound of the MMDTs, but, with the FX40s and the 101s soon to come, I'm thinking I might try selling my MMDTs and use the funds to get my customs reshelled. There's something I miss about the TF10 sound, and with 2 very capable cheapo dynamic IEMs in the house, I need to get my BAs working again.

That's kinda where it's heading for me as well. MMDT and MG7 were recent purchases after much hesitation. This, after having bought, tried and returned a bunch of IEM's.

 

 

..... Then came Dsnuts and the low price / high quality sound club. beerchug.gif

I'm also thinking about buying a iem set, as in this period I'm working during night, and it's quite boring...biggrin.gif.

Can any of you suggest me the best deal, without spending too much?

I'm more of a neutral type, so I prefer natural sound to a very bassy one.

Thx for the idea. Tried it. They fit better now and the SQ is STELLAR. But I'm not hearing the epic sub bass you were talking about?

Try out a MP8320.  The FX40 is fantastic but you gotta burn the living daylights out of them to come out right. 100 hours minimum.

Hi, I just recently started looking into IEM's and am very interested in the JVC FX101. Would anyone tell me if these are great for the gym or if you can recommend something else that's better? Thanks in advance for any insight into the world of IEM's  :)

I wasn't either until I started the burn. So burn. And If you don't have Lil Wayne the carter 4. you need to get his album ready for the sub bass test. You will understand once you do these things.

 

That was why my initial impression of these FX101 I was mentioning that basshead guys might be disappointed but that was about 10 hours into the burn. After about a solid 40. Wow. Lol. I don't know if what I initially heard was right or wrong but the sub bass for that album is EPIC on the FX101. I do use bass boost on my Sony daps but man it just flat out impressed me.

 

This. basshead.gif

Yes actually these would be about a perfect gym buds as your gonna get really. .Great isolation when music is on. Not much microphonics. Great sound. And best of all $16. Lol.

 

Oh and did I mention the crazy sub bass these have? We are talking sub woofer in your ears my friend.

Thanks for the reply Dsnuts! It sounds like a perfect companion for the gym indeed!

One last question...in the pictures it looks kinda big so would you say that it'll stay in your ears while your jogging/running?


Sorry one more question...do you recommend any site that sells and ships them for cheap to Toronto?

Looking forward to more of your recommendations Dsnuts! Cheers! :)

Been trolling the thread and figured what the hell.  I google shopped it and Sears carries them.  One right down the block from my office.  They just got them in ($19.99).  She had to open the box to make sure the ones she thought and they were.  Bought a pair of red.  So far, not too bad (alittle weird going from ety's H5 with virtually no bass!)

Sorry man I have no idea if those are being shipped to Canada. I bought mine off of Amazon.. See if any of the vendors that sell them through Amazon will ship to Canada. If not your gonna have to look around your area. I know JVC has these on their web site that might be another place to start. I bet if you write an email to them they will reply with a location you can purchase these from..

Ya see now that is why I have never ever heard an Ety earphone. No bass for my Jazz is like no highs for them too. That to me is a 1/3rd of the sound that is gimpy..I suppose if an earphone just focused on highs and mids alone it better have some great highs and mids but for me if it don't have bass that would be tough for me to listen to. I suppose that is just my personal preference.. Happy listening and welcome to the discovery thread and in your case. The discovery of bass. lol!. These are kinda not too bassy until some bassy music is played which is nice.

What if my music consists of all piccolo solos? Do I need bass in my IEM's? wink.gif

For me, "dark" has to do with an over-emphasis in the ~500-750 Hz range, which I feel the FX40 has -- like a slight muffling veil in that area.  I already stated, that I feel like it has plenty of highs, although not a smooth as I like, nor sparkly and nicely extending like the RE0.  It might help to let you know that my typical frame of reference it the Etymotic ER-4P, which is very clear and can be "dry" sounding, and if anything needs some boost in the ~500 Hz range.

 

It has been suggested to me that maybe I got a bad set, but the sound in not THAT different to the SHE3850 -- I just prefer the greater clarity of the cheap SHE3850.

 

Enough analyzing ... back to enjoying!

How long have you had them burn? The reason why I ask is to my ears the these are clear as a bell and sound much better with a solid 100 hours of burn. 50 hours is just starting to loosen up the drivers.  This was the case for both the FXC51 and the FX1X as well. I am going for a solid 200 actually.

 

On open box what your describing makes sense. They have a V shape sound and sound distant on open box. This goes away with at least a 100 hours.
