Dude, seriously? I just bought the FX101s. :(

 

PS: You saying these might be better than the CKS77?

Truth be told I think the FX101 are very close and actually does a few things better than the CKS77. I love the big roomy sound of the CKS77and are still my Bass champs, but I am looking at the specs of them X3X.. Metal housing using Carbon drivers.

 

Not only am I gonna predict that these X3X are gonna be superior to the CKS77. These might be the end game high end Bassy earphones to beat..We will see. Based on what I have learned from these intro versions..I have high expectations of these X3X earphones. Wait till I get them. These might just be a small improvement over the XF101 in that case will not be worth it. But for me. 

 

It is worth taking a risk..Enjoy your XF101s there is no denying the great sound those have but I hope these higher end X3X will show me something new.. We will see. I had to get them to find out.

Now, let's say you did not buy them, you don't get to listen to music with them (or maybe no music at all depending if you already own some IEM or headphones). Which option is preferable to you?

 


Good point

I'll wait until your review and then might get them for cheaper as I know someone who works in a retail store who might be able to get me a major discount on them.

Glad I could help. Enjoy the decision you made today and you will be able to try out other models of earphones in the future!

Look forward to your take on them. But only after the required 100 hours..They change greatly from open box. Seriously they are like 2 different sounds all together..So burn like you've never burned before. It requires it

Lol. The power of suggestion. So which one of you guys bought them FX3X with me. Lol I just checked and they had 3 pairs which are all sold out now.

 

I am actually very excited to get these. I was looking at these last time I was on ebay thinking it will be more FX1X..But based on these FX101s.. These should be the upgrades to the FX101..In which should be the upgrades to what AT has done to date.

 

And this is how the discoveries roll..I will be pissed if these aren't what I think they might be. Lol!

BG. I should have guessed. You don't even wait till I get them now. Lol!!! What if these turn out to be turds? I'm not responsible you know.! Lol. I suppose we will both find out together. Nice to jump both feet in with you my friend.

 

They say I should get them from Japan by the middle of June. In the mean while if you guys haven't tried out a FX40 or a FX101.. Both are astonishing for the cost. in fact this is kinda whack but after using my XF101s

 

I just got a new pair of Red LTD CKS77s and threw them in. While they have the same sound I am used to. I have to admit there are aspects of the much cheaper FX101 I enjoy over the CKS77. Which is astounding for the cost..While I do hope these new FX3X will one up all these earphones. I will never get rid of my CKS77. One of kind sound they have that will always be in my collection.

I might look into some of these JVCs, I'm thinking of selling my CKS77 as the upper-mid peak/resonance is just too fatiguing (and annoying) to me.

 

I wonder which of all these JVCs would fit me most though, I'm very interested in the case that FX1X comes with for example and it's very cheap and gets ravish reviews, after the slight disappointment with CKS77 feels that would be a safe start.

I'll take the gamble.

Got a hunch it'll pay off.

I would skip the FX1X and go for the new and much much improved new XF101. There is no comparison to the older FX1X to these new ones. And these XF101s are the same or cheaper in price.

Ya I have a good feeling about these. The Metal housing for precision. With bigger carbon drivers for even bigger bass response. These I have a feeling will be monsters. JVCs answer to the CKS earphones from AT.

Maybe I'm crazy but if these FX3X buds are as good as you guys hope then we might have a solid competitor against the CKM500. Oh snap lol, can't wait to see impressions. Dsnuts I know here  soon enough I'm going to jump on one of these like I did the Monoprice, just going to see which one pops up on top cool.gif.

The FX1X are bassier though right? I'm not looking for analytical & detailed but fun & engaging sound with big bass. For example I have the cheap KOSS Sparkplug IEMs which seems to pack a super amount of rather good sounding bass, the rest of the range is very muffled sounding but then again it's very easy to listen to and as u turn up the vol a bit the clarity shows up quite well to mids and highs too and I enjoy listen to those quite a bit even despite they're overly muffled sounding.

 

I would gladly come close to the KOSS Sparkplug IEM bass and the CKS77 was even quite behind in terms of bass quantity (and in fact sounded boomier too)

Well yes and no.

 

The CKM500 represent years of Audio Technica know how and refinement. I highly doubt these new JVC HAFX3X are gonna dethrone those for my favorite earphones but we are talking high quality bassy earphones which for me is in another category of earphones all together.  To date it has been the CKS77 with the new FX101 nipping at the heels of them. But if these new FX3X have more refinements over these FX101s. They should handily beat the CKS77..

 

If the new FX3X has the big sound and room of the CKS77 with even better clarity, smoother sound, basically the same sound tuning of the FX101 but more refined. That is all it will take. Just for kicks however. If you want to try the FX101. I can tell you. You won't be disappointed. And they be cheap too. Just how much of an upgrade the new FX3X will be to these FX101s remains to be seen.
