The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 195

post #2911 of 32910

I will post a pic of my "custom" fx40s. My friend makes custom fitted high end iems and took impressions of my ear and gave me a pair of molds that I can just stick any normal iem driver tube into with the housing outside of the mold. Makes a pretty perfect seal. I would think my bass response is a bit better due to this. Also, they go as deep into the canal as possible without causing damage. Pretty neat. B/c you can swap out any iem you have easily and they are super, duper comfortable.

while i like the idea im not so sure on it, i spoke to an audiologist about this and with dynamics sound being related to the enclosure they come in its pretty much hit or miss.  Good for some experimenting though and im interested in seeing the pics and your def right it doesn't get any comfier than customs, although i find myself leaving them a lot more recently due to so many good dynamics being around.

hmmmm not sure if this has been asked/ addressed or not, but regarding the sound of the Tt isurus to the CKM500s, how many % do the Tt's have on the 500s? Since I remember that Dsnuts guesstimated that those could have been a ATH re-brand. Can those that have both sets chime in or do a quick A/B between them?

 

The reason I am asking this is because eventually I'll get the CKM500s as part of my collection, but the sound of the Tt's are so lackluster that I don't want to be disappointed if the 500s are very similar in sound. Yet again the FX40's are at fault for bringing the Tts to shame even though I only paid $10 for them.  Dunno, was never really impressed by the Tts as Dsnuts was, but researching about them led me to this thread and lets just say was truly inspired by Dsnuts fanaticism.... cough... cough... "passion" for this hobby of his, so they served their role I guess. Maybe this was all meant to be haha.  rolleyes.gif

@Dsnuts

Would you say that this XB90EX even rivals the CKM500?
From your description it sounds exactly like it!

post #2916 of 32910

LoL This guy, btw you got them 500s already? The 90EX for sure are on my list as well, but for now they are on the back burners. Got more important priorities for now......

post #2919 of 32910

No problem its just a bit of a revolving door.  Like a kid tugging on coat tails. Just chillax and enjoy your phones.

then i also got defective ears, beacuse my new green 15 minutes FX101 sounds waaay diferent than my 60+hours Red Fx101, same thing when i heard my second pair of ksc75.

out of the box they sounded WAY diferent, lack of bass and clarity between a used and new unit. 

 

sorry guys, but i had to comment here beacuse that is what i am hearing very clearly, i just opened a pair of new Fx101 and clearly i can hear diference in sound,  mostly in the highs.

 

man, i had to have a second pair, all this bass so cheap.. and they are "Kool Green" ksc75smile.gif

Xander, Tyll at Inner Fidelity conducted a double blind experiment between two pairs of Q701s and they concluded Burn-In was definitely real.
post #2922 of 32910

That didn't conclude that burn-in was real, it concluded that 2 pairs of Q701 sounded different. It's easy to believe a factory will release 2 models of the same headphones with audible differences, and they do. However 2 other tests he did showed a variation of about 0.5dB, so not exactly "OMG these are soooo much better"-worthy. Burn-in exists and we probably can't tell.

I believe the pads have more of an effect on burn-in.

Quick question, which of the budget JVC IEMs come with carrying cases? I didn't see any on the FX40 or FX101.

post #2924 of 32910

He said he left the headphones still for a couple of days just for the pads to completely adapt, so I would guess you can exclude pads.

FX1X I believe come with a case, the FX40 I know do not.

post #2925 of 32910

No cases for either the FX40s or the FX101s.

However, my new favorite case for IEMs that don't come with them:

T
he One brand condoms 3 pack has a metal case that works perfectly for IEMs.
