Quick question - where is everyone getting the FX40s from?  Amazon has a few decent sellers but are there any sites offering any deals, etc?

I'd say look here: http://www.buy.com/sr/searchresults.aspx?qu=jvc+ha-fx40-&qxt=home&display=col

 

I wish you luck for getting them at that price.

I have to admit as great as having higher end stuff is and I am not knocking on higher end stuff as I am sure we all have our share of nicer stuff. But man it is a blast to hear a cheapos mimic higher end stuff. Mimic if that is what it is doing. I mean if JVC did the Monster rout. They could have thrown in 3 cases a music CD and 20 pairs of tips with the FX101 throw in a metal housing and a more luxo cord and called it The Stevie Wonder edition and sold the exact same sound for $150 more and I don't know if we would have known any better. 

 

You know what is really funny. My FX101 already lasted longer than my MMDTs without any type of physical defect. No housing falling apart on 2nd day of getting them.

i was thinking this is the sound that beats by dre probably wanted but they ended up producing a muddy mess of a phone overpriced by ten times the 101's.......... muppets lol  WARRRRRR FX101

One reviewer on Amazon for the FX40 mentioned the high interest in its great sound at HeadFi. I don't know why he omitted Dsnuts by name, lol. It's headlined, "Possibly the best bargain in audio today."

Took the dogs for a long walk today. Listened to some trance, house, then rock. FX101s still sounding supreme.

 

I'm thinking i shoulda bought the fx201 in the first place - I could have used the mic today.

 

My edc phones used to be ADDIEMs, which i though were a bargain. 2 BA drivers + mic and i got them for $30 on ebay. I'm enjoying these jvcs just as much.

 

 

Put 5 hours of that bassdrive on the FX40s through my macbook... improvement for sure. Not as painful, it's a noticeable improvement, yet still slightly fatiguing. gonna leave them in all day tomorrow and see what happens.

 

 

did some more a/b/c with the she3580, fx101 and fx40...

 

The fx40s are still the technical champions, and by far the farthest from their price range - with the incredible clarity and detail. The she3580s are still one hellova bargain, but i'm now noticing their staging is all breath and no depth - yet still the easiest to listen to and the lightest/most comfortable. Finally the FX101s are extremely bassy, pleasant, relatively unfatiguing, and comfortable. Stage wise, the 101s aren't as open as the 40s, but seem more round with equal breath and depth but nothing to write home about.

 

The 101s improve A LOT with an amp. I honestly don't know what to make of it. they open up in every way.

 

I find it hilarious that these $18 headphones are benefiting the most of all my headphones from my $200 amp.

Well......It's got the better of me.

I've been watching this thread since it all unfolded, asked a few questions about them recently. There's been two many positive comments not to purchase FX101. I picked my colour of choice, now wait for their arrival. Can they compete with SHE3580 and my soon to be coming SHE9700? Time will tell. If anything it's a blast trying them out and having some fun, which is great and what this hobby's all about!

Please accept my humble apologies if my post came across as offensive, it was certainly not intended.

 

Over here, "ermm" is kind of like an exclaimation for a blank moment, as in

"Teacher, teacher, ....ermm, 1 + 1 = 2 or 3 ?"

 

Besides Dsnut's and several others, I value your views and opinions on these threads highly.

 

Looking at my post again, I can see how it could come across as being curt and rude, please accept my apologies.

Man really wanted to get those FX40's to see what those carbon nanotubes are all about but I sure do miss having a bassy iem like my old MEE M9's or my M6's. (For some strange reason, my little bro's black M6's sound better than my clear M6's - a lot more bass.but sadly both seem pretty muddy.) 

 

I guess FX101 will be my choice of poison since I can be somewhat of a basshead. Of course, I'm not saying I'm expecting that rumbly bass you get from the M6 or HD202. I sure do love all of the great budget finds out there. Funny thing is ordering the FX101's on buy.com for $17 puts them as my second most expensive iem's. 

 

M2 - $25 preorder, Beta - $14 promo. Isurus - $10 sale

Ya I like my Green as well. You are getting the SHE9700 too, Nice. I have to agree I think these budget finds are way more fun to listen to than expensive stuff. I think it has something to do with our perception of cheapos and what we should expect from them. Then these cheaper buds just throws a wrench in that whole idea. It is quite astonishing actually. In a way it doesn't surprise me that it is JVC that is coming out with these great cheaper earphones. I remember being just as smitten with the older FXC51. 41D3bZURlbL._SL500_AA300_.jpg..If you guys don't know about these. These are the older Micro HD earphones from JVC.. I would still recommend the FX40 over these but these have a certain place in my collection..

 

Let me tell you guys a little tale of my FXC51. I went camping with my family and I took my Sony S545 and these FXC51 and it started to rain and while eating a late dinner underneath some tarps I was looking for my earphones when they went missing. It was dark and the rain stopped. I was searching all over the place looking for them I started to back track to my car with a flash light in hand looking all over for them. About a 30 minute search and I found them half submerged cord side into some mud.

 

I quickly snapped them up and cleaned them from dirt and excess water. Plugged them into my Sony and that moment right after some light drizzle, relived that I have found my earphones, Stars was appearing with a bright moon. These FXC51s in my ears. There was nothing on the planet to me that sounded better at that time. I turned on my Music and I was standing there on top of a mountain rock out crop, stars and the moon over head. Blasting of all tunes the moon light sonata..There simply wasn't a more perfect sound moment for me. For this reason alone these have a permanent place in my collection.

 

This is another reason why I am eagerly looking forward to JVCs new HAFXD80s. They are basically the new and improved versions of these. Those will be a day one purchase for me.

Not at all, my friend. I am in awe of the knowledge others have and enjoy soaking some of that up. Then, it's fun to be able to pass something along to others. redface.gif

Just wondering are there any bi-flanges/tri-flanges tips that fit the fx40 without changing the sound significantly to improve the isolation as I am going to use them on a plane soon?
