The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 161

For me I enjoy both equally for different reasons. I will get into that much more in the comparo.. These actually compliment each other more than compete against each other. More on that soon.

@ DS - Which do you prefer? The FX40's or the FX101's?

I like instruments and vocals on the FX40 and my EDM, hiphop collection on the FX101.. I would say the FX40 is the more technically capable earphone out of the 2 but the the FX101 has the bass rumble.

 

It comes down to sound preference more but ever since I got my FXD80. I have been leaning more toward the sounds on the FX40 as being the favorite of the 2.

Thanks for that. After 100 hours of burn in I now enjoy the FX 101's but I do think I would prefer the sound signature of the FX40's. They'll be my next purchase I think.

Try them out for sure. They are great once burned in correct. You will have a WTF moment when you hear them out of the box though. So be warned. They sound way better with a good 100 hours on them.

I can't believe the soundstage and instrument separation that you get for a $15 IEM in the FX40. I hate to admit I'm liking these better than the FXT90, but I think I do. I still, however, love the unique layered sound of a dual dynamic that the FXT90 possesses.

I have incoming IEM's that aren't cheap and I cannot believe that I'll be checking them against the FX40.  confused_face.gif

Wait till you hear what the FXD80 does with these with these carbon nanotubes. You are gonna love how they sound. I am willing to bet on it. Ya these FX40 does get really good..I throw these on when I want more bass end over the FXD80. To think how cheap these bad boys are. Lol.

B2 and 272.

I just got my HA-FX40, I haven't had a proper listening session, but straight from my laptop's HP-out it was impressive and a bit surprising because I'm not used to a signature that's clear, detailed AND bassy. I'll listen to FLAC with WASAPI through my E7, which is as revealing as I can afford, and I'll post impressions.

I'm also getting the B2, can you tell me how they compare? (or we'll just get them at the same time if you ordered through MP4nation redface.gif)

I know the FX101's have a bass sig but what signature would you guys say the FX40's have?

Glad you got them. They will sound even better with proper burn in. Especially these carbon nanotube drivers on these. You will be surprised how nice they turn out once 100 hour of burn is in the books. In other words. Throw them on the burner.  Happy listening Mr LizardKing1.

At first they sound analytical but they become much more musical while maintaining definition after burn in. Clean n dynamic the sound is. Different than what is on the FX101 so worth giving a go. These have the upper hand in technicalities. More detailed and cleaner. On open box almost too much so but I am happy to say they get smoother and much more coherent after burn in and much better balanced too.
