Well I don't know about better Eric. There are some aspects in the sounds that are better on the FXt90 and some that are better on the FX40. The sub bass for one is clearly better on the FX40 the FX90 having just a bit more detail layering and stage due to having 2 drivers.. Otherwise they both have a very similar tonality and overall sound. But considering the FX40 don't cost more than a dinner for 2 at the country buffet. Value is clearly front n center on the FX40s. Look forward to your take on them. I am gonna guess that you will be surprised. Lol..

The FX101 does have some minor spikes in the upper mids to give out more detail and are noticeable on some brighter recorded tunes but again not as crazy as people are saying. I listen to both for hours and both I can listen to without issue. 

 

I know both these are not perfect by any means, but for the given price points. Both are excellent values..

exactly this.

Love this thread.  Was looking for a pair of travel headphones since I didn't want to bring my FXT90's camping and have a pair of 101's on order.  40's sound tempting, but the 101's seem like they'd suit my needs better for what I need them mainly for.  I listen to a lot of rock and electronics.  Also plan to use them for my PlayStation Vita games while traveling.

The 40 sounds so beautiful,that i dont understand why everyone is complianing about the treble....i just let them burn in for 15hrs and they already sound so much better...there speed is just amazing and the clarity just stupidly crazy,for me the fit is amazing that i can sleep with them on my side.....also i can still hear everything on such a low volume is goood for my ears tongue.gif....i am also using the large stock tips.

For those who think the JVC HA-FX40 is good but who feel the FX40 has too much treble, there is the Panasonic RP-HJE355. The HJE355 is similar to the FX40 in detail, however it is not as bright and has a warmer sound overall. I like both of these, although at times the treble on the FX40 is too much. I burned in the FX40 for many hours and it helped tame the treble somewhat, however at times the treble is too much.

No problems with fx40 treble here.

post #2197 of 32864

I've been slowly burning them in and it's more tolerable.  Definitely like them.  Seriously sounds like a much pricier IEM.  

post #2198 of 32864

Hmm.....hybrid budget CIEM

 

highs/mids= Phonak Audeo PFE 112

lows=FX40...

Has anyone tried some of JVCs on ears?

 

I was surfing, and found the HA-S200. apparently they've got carbon nanotube drivers as well.

Although i'm not sure if they're the same ha-s200 that sears has for $30. pictures look different from that post and these

post #2200 of 32864

Thanks Dsnuts for your enthusiasm in your posts. Thanks to you I bought the Isurus which I am enjoying in this moment.

I do not understand why the enthusiasm with Isurus past so fast eclipsed because ha-fx40. It take several days for get the maximun performance with Isurus in my android but after to try several equalizer apps I found the  Poweramp app wich is a excelent tool, and the same think with my computer tying the equlizaer and THX options in my sound card X-FI XtremeMusic.

Before the Isurus I got the JVC Xtreme Xplosive at december 2011 but after to buy the Isurus 3 weeks ago the JVC XX are in the case.

 I have not fx40 and I do not think that I will get them but not because I do not trust the posts but it because I will stop buying cheap earphones to buy one above 9 points (sound points)  according the Ljokel's chart, because if the FX40 is so good and better that the Isurus I will pass trying more and I will buy a good/expensive earphones.

The point is that that cheap earphones are not bad but I will not keep buying one of them each few months because the last one is supostly better than the previous one.

I would like to buy hifiman re272 but I can not find them. I found the re262 but after compare several earphone above 9 point I think that sennheiser ie 8 is the best and cheapest option among 9 points earphones. Vsonic gr07 is a good option but more expensive at ebay than sennheiser ie8 and the others are simply even 3 times more expensive with several decimal of advantage.

Sorry for my English.

I can understand what you are saying. You are trying to find an earphone that you can spend more that will have a better sound quality than these cheaper ones.

 

Well Yes and no. What I mean by this is. You will soon discover the more expensive alternatives while certainly sounding great and better than the cheapos that are on this thread might not be what you think they are. I know many guys go by what Joker posts on his thread and it is there for this reason but. You will soon discover that your sound preference comes into play more than one mans post on many. His thread should be used more as a guide to get you a good idea of what type of sound the particular earphone will have more than something that is cardinal rule.. The 9 rated earphones you are looking at will surprise you as many of them will not be a huge jump in sound quality according to you. This hobby is very subjective and even joker has his own preference and what he considers is great in sound and each one of us has our own.

 

I think most if not all of us had at one pint or another the same thought. I should get one nice one and be done with. You get one nice one. Enjoy them for a while and then another pops up that you start reading about and that makes you want to buy them. And on and on. Next thing you know what you thought about having that ONE earphone becomes many. I am guilty of this myself. Lol. Anyway I will tell you even though these cheaper earphones obviously don't sound as great maybe in comparison to the highly regarded ones but you have to understand that these cheaper ones are great to figure out what type of sound signature you prefer..

 

Perhaps these are a way to test the waters sort to say..After a few of these if you end up liking one type of signature then it is only natural to upgrade to a better one.. I suppose all of us have a different way of going through our individual sound journeys. These budget champs are just a great and cheaper way to test out the various different types of sound we have in this hobby without spending much to find out..I will tell you I have purchased many of them 9 plus rated earphones myself only to have even a cheaper one actually sound better to my own ears. But that is just me I suppose. Good luck with your new purchases.

 

I don't know about you guys but I truly enjoy finding a $10-$25 earphone that just kicks much booty in sound. It is not normal. It is thumbing the collective noses of many. Oh look I give you nice looking earphone 3 pouches 40 tips and will charge you $300 yet sound average.. I couldn't care less. I would rather have my sound to be honest.

It is indeed fun. Plus trying all these cheap gems is a lot easier than amassing a collection of top-tiers. i can't imagine owning se535s, w4s, sm3s, ect all at the same time; not now anyway.

 

this is an easy way to keep feeding the beast without sacrificing the contents of my wallet.

I must thank you for doing all the legwork, as far as weeding out all the junk i'm sure there is in the <$30 category.

 

i'm sitting here with my fx101s, which i enjoy, thinking.... what's next?

You thought about getting yourself a CKM500 dnullify? They are more expensive that these budget ones yes but are truly worth it for the sound quality. They cost around $72 from CDjapan. Something to consider if your looking for the what is next. But at the same time the new FXD80s are around the corner too and those would be at around $120 or so. I am gonna guess that the CKM500 are gonna have the easier listening treble out of the two.

So that nobody gets confused only the new JVC 400 and 500 series headphones have nanotube drivers and not the S200. I would skip the 200 and try to find a decent price on the 400 instead:)

Actually I wouldn't mind trying the S500 even over the FXD80. Too bad it doesn't have the looks of the red S400 but isn't that always the way. Not as good sounding but they make it more attractive.

S400s look interesting. I wonder if they'll have similar properties to the FX40, or whether the they'll be tuned differently.

 

Doesn't look like there'll be available in the US for a while though.

I've thought about it, but the price is what i'm apprehensive about.

<$30 performers are somewhat whimsical purchases to me, in comparison to the consideration i give at anything >$75. I don't think i should be accumulating too many "expensive" phones; I can i suppose, i just have reservations about it. I've already got a set of TF10s that have had very little use since i got them, which is in part due to the fact that i can't get them to stay in my ears.

 

I've read a chunk of the CKM500 thread, but i figured i'd see how the FXD80s played out. I'm optimistically hoping that the price will come down once they're readily available here to the point where they compete with the CKM500.

 

I've also been eying the ASG-1 of late more so than other top-tiers I have yet to try, because of the massive 15mm dynamic driver. You've gotten me hooked on dynamic drivers it seems, because I'm not all that interested in the others in that particular price range (various westones, shures, ect). although this may have something to do with the fact that i doubt that i'd like them more than the JH5s. the ASG-1s are different enough from my JH5s to prove intriguing.

 

I also really want to try the vsonic GR02 Bass, in light my experience with these jvcs and see how the more commonly known budget high performers do.

 

I duno. too many IEMs, not enough money, time, or reason.
