How does everyone find the fit is now? The FX40 (like the RE-252 before it) while sounding great, hurt my ears after awhile while the JAYS q-JAYS were very comfortable with the small or extra small tips. Even the Sony EX30LP that I owned before were more comfortable when using the small hybrid tips. I find the big issue is the nozzle size with many (if not all) of the JVC IEMs having a nozzle measuring 5.5 mm in diameter as compared to 3 mm for Sony (usually) and 2 mm (for the q-JAYS). I tried the small hybrid tips on my FX40 and while they seal wonderfully, there is still that pressure when I insert them into my ear.

 

Edit: Just found the extra small tips for JVC IEMs here: https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=en&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=ja&tl=en&twu=1&u=http://www3.jvckenwood.com/accessory/headphone/inner/ha-fx40/earpiece.html&usg=ALkJrhjCXnFquyUPY1NvVrO5SoGVThmG1g To Google and eBay I go to try finding these. So much for that. frown.gif

I"m really tempted on all of them including the SHE9700 and FX40, but leaning towards FX101 to test!

I think even at your price you will like the fx101.  While the bass is not a leap in quantity over the she3580. Again very close in sub bass. The over all sound is bigger and wider over them. The she9700 is even closer to the fx101.  But sq wise  fx101 are the ones to get.

After several hours of burn, the 101's are taming down some.  Classical music sounds really good with these.  Definitely liking these more now.  Nice bargain.

I just saw the Brainwavz M4 is US$28 and the deal ends very soon.

How do you all think the FX40 /101 compares to the M4?

post #1988 of 32866
I have to say, Dsnuts, the FX40 is shaping up to be my favorite of your discoveries. I'm laying on my couch right now (well, a minute ago) listening to some good old tunes with my eyes closed in a dark room. Even at stupid low volumes, The sound is still musical and reains every single detail. I think the FX40 shines best at lower volumes, where the aggressive detailing comes in handy.

I don't know who ermm is, but I was starting to fall out when trying to be helpful and didn't read your post fully. redface.gif

Good find, Soul_est. I was lucky in that the included tips fit me perfectly. What I'll be doing soon is trying other tips just to see if the sound can be improved a notch. smily_headphones1.gif

If you don't mind me asking, which tips do you use? I've tried the small and memory foam tips and while the small tips are the most comfortable, the FX40 still feel too big. triportsad.gif Finding the extra small tips is now at the top of my todo list. smile.gif

 

Edit: This may seem crazy but I am very tempted to crazy-glue the end of the stem of a Sony Hybrid Eartip to the end of the nozzle on the FX40 as they are both the same diameter. The lack of comfort with the other tips is getting to me.

I think JVCs stock tips are pretty good...

 

 

I'm beginning to think 100 hours of pink noise isn't good enough for the fx40s based on what you all are saying. Not entirely sure though... might have to try some drum and bass. Or maybe i just ahd the pink noise at too low a volume, after all my comfortable listening volume is probably significantly lower than the driver's moderate output.

 

 

I have barely got 15 hours on the 101s. Listening to A pretty lights album i got for free of their website. Definitely the fx101's forte right there, excellent music to listen to while working, i'd say.

 

 

I was A/B ing the she vs fx101, and i gotta say that the 101 is super similar. The prominent difference being that the fx101 sounds much cleaner and balanced despite it being a bass headphone. It balances out yet more amped.

 

So what are the other JVCs worth trying?

 

 

I do like the cable better on the FX40. I can't figure why there's a difference between the two.

Same here. I've got quite a bit of pink noise burn time on them (like 70-80 hours maybe), and the highs are still pretty harsh. I'll be switching to DnB for the next few days.

I've been using that to burn in my headphones for a while.


Try this.Fairly loud. And we are talking 7,8/10 volume wise. I will have to link this in the beginning of the thread. Thanks bjaardker.

So far, only using the tips that came mounted on the FX40. Fits me well. Any other attempts with different tips are out of curiosity.
