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.

 

Im not so sure... I have the R02 pro (non bass edition) and it has way more rumble than the fx40, maybe even more than the fx101... unless the GR02 is an updated model or something

Did you allow for a extensive burn in. I bought a pair of R02 BE a while back and they lacked the rumble that I expected from them, but having a listen to my friends FX40 made me want to buy them on the spot. I waited until my Copper's were dead though. Make sure you have a good seal on the FX40, my friend's tips were difficult for me to seal so I just used a pair of foam super tips.

D: I wish they would have used a darker green. Neon piss green is hurting my eyes. I ordered the black ones for me and silver ish color for my fiancee.

I dislike green because the rivals of the football (soccer) team I support wear green.

Hey did you get your FXD80s in yet? Curious on how you would compare them to your FX40s and S500s. haha, this is so superficial but if they were chromed out like their studio pics, I would have picked them up in a heart beat, but in reality it is kinda of a dull stainless steel color so not enough bling for me. LoL

 

Request: Pics of them new FXD80's would be nice of you. redface.gif In this thread or the FXD one doesn't matter.

post #3176 of 32897

still not here... just an idea:   i paid 1 day shipping for my S500 and arraived 3 weeks later... i paid standard shipping for my Fxd80 so i am expecting 2 months biggrin.gif

You guys are fortunate to have everything so fast, for us down here things are way to slow.

 

also

 

i found it funny that after 200+ pages, the consencus is that the FX101 is a better sounding IEM than the FX1X, and you still read around this forum that the FX1X is a good deal

, also that the FX40 are way bright, even it has been said that these need massive burnin

.

so funny.. people are not reading this thread.

I doubt burn in will make them sound bassier, and seal is not the issue. The r02 pro are very muddy so the fx40 win easily, and I cant speak for the r02 BE. the left driver went out, but i doubt that would cause any change in the right... the BE is supposed to have a more refined bass, but the fx101 would be fairer comparison for its rumble. Its very possible just defective because it hits hard.
