I've burned in my pair using a pure FLAC collection of pink noise,psytrance, rnb and dubstep at max volume from my galaxy phone since my pc is a poor source and its worked out amazing so far no harsh highs but then again i always burn in on the second night at the highest volume possible...They must be forged into greatness with brutality and force just like a diamond ^^

I always use heavy drum mix from burninwave.com which seems like it doesnt exist anymore to burn in all my earphones and headphones.

I can't tell that your excited about them FX3X. I have no idea when mine will arrive. Though my main concern is with the other frequencies. I know it will handle the bass part well as all the XX line does. I want to see what the rest of the sound offers.

 

@Bjaardker. I am surprised you find the highs to be sibilant. That would be the last word I would describe the highs on the FX101. They are actually much smoother sounding earphone even over the FX40. Easy on the ears imo. I am wondering if your getting the right seal on them. They would sound sibilant with some sound leakage but I know you know that so. Hmm don't know.

A bad pair maybe?

How did you mod them for iPhone controls?

It would be fantastic if you got the fx40 to compare with your HF3. I was looking into trying that signature, but it seems like the fx40 may be around that area.

Of course there is the easy way to do that. You can just get the HA-FR201 but. 4193TQxIpJL._SL500_AA300_.jpg Lol. No kidding I am with dweaver how did you get iphone controls on the FX101.?

I took a pair of iphone buds (the white ones that come with the phone), popped off the earbuds, un-soddered the wires and then carefully cut open the FX101s (they do not snap apart as far as I can tell), un-soddered the wires there and soddered the iphone cord in.  I then superglued the 101s back together and wham....everything worked perfectly and sounded great.

I know - and I actually won a pair of FX101s with mic (same ones you picture above) on ebay today for $14.99 shipped.  Figured I'd try that mic out but no volume controls :(

 

Oh ..  I forgot to mention, after I superglued them back together, I took some matte black model car paint and gave them a quick once over to hide the extra glue that dried up.  They look pretty good....

I know - that's what I am worried about!  I really like the ety HF3s and they have a great iphone cord but if (and I bet they do) the fx40s compare and sounds probably just as good, I'll be disappointed that I spent so much on the etys ($120 amazon).  I do like how sturdy they feel though (and the form-factor).

 

Its sad, I probably have over $2000 in headphones/IEMs/earbuds (TF10s, Bowers & Wilkins p5s, V-Moda M-80s, Klipsch s4i and s5i as well as the Image One over-ears, and a couple pairs of Senns, etc) ...and my go-to's lately have been some cheap JVCs!!!  Kudos to them for making a quality product and a nice price point....
