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
 


Enjoy your new earphones and give them a good burn. I think burn fills out the bass end even further. Another thing I noticed with these. They absolutely need the best fit possible in your ears to get the best sound even more so than most earphones..We should see many more impressions to come.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if these sounded great. The cheaper JVC HAS160 is one of the best sounding cheapo portable easy to use headphones on the market people overlook because how cheap they are. 31hm3LridyL._SL500_AA300_.jpg$13

JUST got my my WIFE'S fx101's.

I'M dutifully giving them first listen and then some burn in.

10 minutes in to Heart's Greatest Hits.

Some nice sparkle in places.

I see you lingering there eric. You might as well. Is all I am saying. Lol!. $35 for both of these... I think you will be surprised with both..JVC ain't playing either. All of a sudden these 2 companies step up.

The HA-S160 headphone is great, however the HA-S360 headphone feels very flimsy with no metal in the headband, and imo the sound isn't as good as the HA-S160. A number of people reported breaking their HA-S360 after a few months. I'm afraid the HA-S200 might resemble the HA-S360 in build quality. That other article claims it uses carbon nanotube technology, so it is interesting.

 

The JVC HA-S600 and HA-S650 are good and seem very well built, however they are much darker sounding than the HA-S160. I love the very neutral sound on the HA-S160.

Both are excellent. The FX40 has the leg up on clarity and detail but the FX101 has the bigger sound and bass end a bit more musical sounding..Both these are like gifts for being the smart enthusiast you all are. That's the way I see it. Happy listening fellas it is always nice to find cheap good sounding stuff.

Ok so I burned in my FX101s through the night and gave them a listen earlier. Woww. The sub bass comes out with a hunger. It's got that magical decay like the FX40s. Damn. I've been taking for granted how amazing the overall SQ is. The CKM500s were my go-to pair for a while, but I'm using the FX101s all the time now with no hesitation. These are an EPIC value just like the FX40 and CKM500.

Uh oh. CKM500 and FX101 are head to head? I have a CKM500 incoming.

No I wouldn't worry about that. The CKM500 is on another tier of sound over these FX40s. Though you might have some conflicts of which to grab sometimes. Lol! These are that good. These lack the depth of the CKM500s and imaging not as good. You definitely got the more refined version of these FX40s sound .These FX40s sound goood though. lol!

Talkin' 101's, not 40's! biggrin.gif
