In a nutshell and imho:

 

Bass = FX40 wins

Sub bass extension = FX40 wins

lower mids = GR02 wins

Upper mids = GR02 wins

Highs = FX40 and GR02 draws

 

3D like staging = Definately GR02 wins

Price/performance ratio = FX40 wins

Cables/Micronics = Draw

 

Both earphones are at their best when listerning in a quiet place i.e at night.

Both have a fun sound signature that's clear in all the necessary areas and both are excellent as a first IEM for anyone starting on this journey.

Use tri flanage tips instead they are the best at isolating

I don't think driver flex would break the drivers if you push them in gently, the better IEMs have little or no such irritations.


Ok now that I got a better grasp of what "driver flex" entails, the pop sound I hear when I insert my IEMs just means I got a nice tight seal.  I don't hear popping sounds while I am listening to my music after that even when I am eating etc with them on, so I have not experienced driver flex then. GOOD THING! ha

 

.............. think I am gonna be paranoid from now on tbh, popping sounds all in my head.  normal_smile%20.gif

So, both of them can't isolate? Bummer. frown.gif

 

Oh, and these won't be my first in ears. My first were/are Marshmallows. Got them for 3 USDs, going strong for over a year now. etysmile.gif

 

And I've heard that the GR02s can have a slightly harsh treble at times. Is that true?

Ok. Thanks. You just confirmed what i think about these fx40. At night or on a quiet place these fx40 sound oustading, once you listen them at a crowdy place or at office its like the magic is lost and they sound thin ans nothing special. I am not so sure its isolation, me thinks there is something happenig on these iems once i need to cranck the over 70% of volume.

Also. Could you care to give us the margin on about what amount or % one wins over the over? Its a tight fight, clear winner or blows the doors of the other?

In any case i would not recomend these iems for gym, jogging, loud office etc. Magic is gone,

And i am 100% sure that people complaining about them beeing so bright are blasting this things over 70% of volume, less than that, they sound very nice, nothing to complaing about. Me thinks that there are the ones coming froma bassy iems that want to hear the music loud. These are like wine, not Coca Cola. Easy on them amd you will enjoy them.

There is a solution !    ...swap out the silicone tips with the black memory foam tips that came with the FX40. The penalty for that is the inconvenient when putting and removing the IEMs, slighty less bass and highs but the soundstage is slightly better.

You can try experimenting with COMPLY foam tips for even more isolation and/or SQ.


Ok. I will buy the "isolation" argument. At work i have some complys i am going to try on these and report back.

Ok. I dont need "a lot of help" or arguments for not buying somethig with nanotubes, so i just bought the Fxd80. Once you you got the fx40 or the s500 anything with carbonnanotubes is a easy buy rolleyes.gif

Paid 1 day shipping cause i want them fast! Like NOW! biggrin.gif

Buy the fx40 or the Gr02, Use your marsmallows when you are at work or whatevers to hear music, once you get at home put on any of them and enjoy music. I prefer that than a iem with lower sq only because they isolte better. About harsh, if you listen to the fx40 at 70% max of volume there is no harsh whatsover. Not heard the GR02 but seems that they are even better.

Problem is, most of my music is on the move. Like, say, 70% of the time I need the isolation. I figured it was about time I went a step up from the Marshmallows. But it'd be kinda pointless to spend so much (50 USD is a lot for me) when I would be using them less than half the time.

Seeing as my home pair are my secondary pair, I'd much prefer spending more on something that can isolate better.

What tips do the fx101 come with?
post #3119 of 32858

Just plain silicone ones, similar to things you'd get with skullcandys etc

Reporting back.

 

 I am using Meleecs M9 Double flange tips on my Fx40,  results... improvment on amount of bass,  more isolation (using them at office).   Still have to test them out in more crowdy places with more noise.

 

But, yes... i can use them at office, so thats an improvement.
