The Pioneer CL-721. They sounded like music was playing though a can when I heard them they progressively got worse and worse. 10 hours of burn and they sounded like you had your head under water and was listening to music. Simply the worst sounding earphone I have ever heard in my life. 41ZYeuEkarL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Sure it wasn't busted. The Pioneer CLX60 was a nice sounding phone. The CL721 got 4.5 stars on Amazon Japan including 5 stars from a CKS77 owner.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible sound quality, March 4, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pioneer SE-CL721-K Headphones, Black/Red (Electronics)

I bought these thinking they would be good given the brand but they actually sound as bad as those given on airplanes. Do yourselves a favor and get something else. H

 

 

I think these were supposed to sound like a club. kinda like the vmoda earphones. But it is a case of sound tuning gone wrong. You want to talk about muddy unclear sound. It is the Anti FX40..I don't know if my particular pair was bad but based on some of these reviews I can certainly understand what this guy that reviewed them said is to be completely true.

Still, the other five reviews are 5 star. And on Newegg 15 reviews averages out to 5 eggs. Not that they are great but shouldn't be that bad. Probably a few lemons.

Every product is like that. Try buying a toaster by the reviews. You'd be lucky to find one toaster that actually toasts evenly and on both sides at the same time. Some praise the toasters and some dislike them. It's a roll of the dice in sample to sample manufacturing quality.

Those who ordered both FX40 & FX101, which did you like the most?

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.

Does anyone ever use the burn-in audio player at http://www.jlabaudio.com/burn.php?  I've used it for a few pairs, couple of nights each.  Not bad but wondering anyone else's experience.

I've used it for muck around purchases but it seems a little raw for my tastes of burn in, especially for expensive sets.

I prefer to use music.

Holy Cow. I just tried my FX101s out, using my Galaxy Nexus with no amp. Man, these are awesome sounding. So far, I think they are even better than my ATH-CKS77, mostly because I enjoy the forward in-your-face sound compared with the CKS77's spacy big room sound. For my fun/rock headphones, I prefer something similar to the Grado soundstage presentation. Also, I think these FX101s are more comfortable than the CKS77s. Definitely smaller! They are definitely more comfortable. I'm looking forward to trying some serious burn in on these to see if they change, but I won't be able to do that until next week sometime. Can't wait for my FX40 to come in!

Oh great. I figured I'd be a guinea pig and picked those up from the listing I had in the "Deals Alert Thread". I will let you know whether you had a bum pair or if they really area PoS.

Just my 2 cents, I´ve had a dozen of iem's in the past, but I´ve stayed with only two, dba-02 and atrio m5.
Today i received the fx101, i must agree with this useful thread and some of the comments, and say that out of the box they impressed me a lot, as usual with all JVC iem's.
The sub-bass IMO, i still prefer the ambience of the atrios, but at this price this is a bargain.
More confortable than the fxc51 and more airy.

Very nice discovery.
Thanks for the advice

Sony Hybrids work on these?

post #1665 of 32904

The hybrids fit on the HA-FX40, however the opening in the hybrids is much smaller than on the included tips, and it might just be my imagination, however it seems like the narrower opening on the Sony hybrid tips seems to negatively impact the sound.
