post #1891 of 32885

Just got my HA-FX101 in the mail (2am over here, they came earlier but I wasnt home haha)

 

Having lots of fun testing it out with the many different tips I have from other IEMs.

 

First impression: These things are wayyy brighter than I thought they'd be. The highs actually hurt at times.

This is probably due to my source, I'm using a RoCoo BA right now and I've noticed they have a brighter signature than standard consumer players.

 

The stock tips are horrible for my ears. The mediums are too big and the smalls are too small.

I ended up using some medium sized tips from my Panasonic RP-HJE120s. Those fit my ears much better, but I noticed the the hole of the tips are smaller than the ones included, so it might have a detrimental effect on SQ, but I couldnt tell.

 

I also tried some Comply S-400 foam tips I have left over from my old Brainwavz M2s. The exit hole on these tips are even smaller than the ones from my panasonic.

The foams definitely helped calm down the highs, but I also suspect that theyre hurting the bass a bit. I'm constantly switching between these and the panasonics.

Might go and buy a set of T-400s from Comply, designed for the XX series (the Comply site doesnt specify which XX IEM its for though :\)

 

For now, I'll let these burn in and see what happens.

Genuine sure but they could be factory rejected pairs. On the CKS77 thread I bought an actual AT factory rejected pair for half price of the original boxed version. The first pair I received had bad drivers as they had issues with sound as I was hoping they would sound like my original pair but the vendor was very cool folks and sent me a replacement and the 2nd one I got are perfect.

 

How you liking your FX101? Hope everyone is burning their earphones in to get them nice n loose..

The tips are not original at all. I know it would naturally get people that just bought their first XX earphone in the FX101 to consider trying out the FX1X.. I would get a FX40 over them if you guys don't have them already.. The older FX1X was fun at the time they came out and had some monsterous bass but compared to the FX101 there is no comparison on which one has a correct sound. 

 

I know they get rave reviews on Amazon but I am certain after owning the superior FX101 for guys that try out a FX1X will be disappointed.. Well that is unless you want a less refined sound.

 

I thought the rule on DX for headphones was if the title uses the product name, it says genuine and the pictures aren't photoshopped it's a good chance it's real?

 

I don't know.  I've never bought headphones from there before.

I have burned mine in for about 16 hours, not counting my time listening, the vocals are becoming clear. They are sounding better and better.

Oh man if you guys look on that site. They have fake EX700s that cost like $7. Fake CKS90s costing like $9  The  fake ones look like toys..Lol. That is a site from China and everything goes in China. That would be the last place I would order anything from. I am sure they will send you what you ordered from them but what you order from them is the problem more than anything.

Mann.. Took me about two week to read thru the 120+ pages of this thread,

 

After the first 3 pages, I went out and purchased a couple sets of SHE3580 (they're still on the burner) ..couple days later, ordered a pair of FX1X, ...then came page 83, hunted and ordered 2 pairs of FX40   ...and you guess it, after page 96 went and order several pairs of FX101 and a CKS77    ...9 pairs of IEMs in 2 weeks (and still eyeing the FXD80 and FX3X)

 

...There should be a restraining order on Dsnut !!! biggrin.gif

I put about 80 hours of burn in time on my FX101s, and while I thought they were truly great before, now they are just about perfect for me. I've stopped burning them but am still burning the FX40s in. I'm going to put about 150 hours on them before I give them another listen. I liked them a lot but I'm not sure if I like them as much as I like my FX101s. These 101s have now completely taken the place of all the other portable sets I own. Looking forward to giving the 40s some solid ear time once the weekend is over.

I have realized, besides sounding great (40's have unreal bass in my copy of them) and the 101's is  that my biology is a match for these two JVC's. 
 
They pop into my ear with the stock mounted tips and seal up right away! Meanwhile, I have struggled with other way more expensive IEM's trying to get a good fit. Ones like Monster Miles Davis and MG7 (both gone), presently struggling with Yamaha EPH-100 (going to be gone), Shure SE215 and 535 (flew the coop), which was like a science project to get them in correctly and sealed up and were a hassle in the event someone asked me a question requiring me to remove one. These two JVC's are a joy in immediate insertion and easy removal; are lightweight and deliver the sound with minimal fuss.

can someone post a photo of the colored cable on the 101's  i want to see if its the same build as the black cable.   

thanks

I have to agree it is getting out of hand but you know what. When most of them cost as much as a cheap dinner why not. lol! You enjoy them earphones let us know how they are sounding to you.

Ya but see I was like that too. I thought the FX101 was the better earphone over the FX40 and then I started to listen to them and was like no way. The FX40 started sounding better over the FX101. I gave up after going back n forth over 10 times on which I thought was the better. Lol. For $40ish I will just accept them both as being one earphone. I have to or I will go nuts.

I agree fully with this. The MMDTs, MG7 I have to fidget with just to get a good seal. These JVCs just pop into my ears for instant sound and I don't have to mess with them..It is amazing to me that such a cheap earphone actually has the better ergonomic design over so many more expensive ones.

post #1902 of 32885

Dsnuts, can you recommend any over the ear foldable headphones that have a similar sound signature to either of these JVC earphones? 

Thanks.

Well the one I have in mind is Audio Technicas Solid Bass WS55 which has a similar sound signature to the FX101.  You can read about them here. They aren't fold able but are built strong good isolation and truly one of the best sounds for portable headphones. http://www.head-fi.org/t/567012/the-portable-bass-kings-the-pioneer-hdj500-vs-akg-518-le-vs-the-first-look-at-the-new-at-ws55-solid-bass#post_7678587

post #1904 of 32885
Great, I will look into those, thank you.
I was also looking at the JVC HA-S200. There aren't any reviews though.

Ya you know considering JVCs track record. Those being so cheap. You should try them. Why not. I would like to know if those are good myself. Cheap for JVC doesn't mean cheap sound that is for sure.
