Im really digging the input on the thread super helpful for everyone rolleyes.gif

 

Now on a better note the FX40s without filters bring out better detail and bring the mids up nicely (do at your own risk for im not at fault for messing your crap up lol) 

 

Listening to this tune without the filters really gives the effects in the beginning of the track a much more tactile and viseral feel to them beerchug.gif

If you don't mind could you please tell me what they have over the cks77 (or what you favored about them over the 77's?)

Tank you

things just got more interesting.

Lol, you got your < and > mixed up.

 

The SHE8005 have muddy bass and the mids and high are just as bad as the FX1X, which at least have got lots of rumble in the bass.

 

If I broke my CKS77, I'll immediately buy another one !   ...the FX101 is plenty good for a beater but the CKS77 just about beats it everywhere.

edit: ok, it seems like there's more than one version of the fx101. The newer ones don't come with a case and don't have the chrome ring at the ends of the earbuds.

 

The ones that comes with a black plastic box and have a chrome ring are the JVC HAFX1X, they are black casing with red cables.

 

ALL the JVC HAFX101 does not come with any boxes, they are available in several colors with matching colored cables. There are only two version that I know of, the FX101 and the FR201(with mic).

 

I am confused by your first sentences as both FX1X and FX101 have bass in abundance !

SHE3580 vs SHE8005

SHE3580-vs-SHE8005.jpg

(red: SHE3580, black, SHE8005; ignore the different tails on the right, I can't hear much past the last two peaks on the graph)

 

I think the midbass hump of the 8005 plus the lack of sparkle in the upper mids (~2kHz) compared to the 3580 contribute to a perception of muffledness.

You likely have the older version which is different and not supposed to be as good. I used to have the Meelec M6 and the FX101 has more and much better bass.

Thanks for sharing the graphs, Joe    ...confirms my suspicions that the 8005's midbass hump is masking out the mids details.

 

My ears prefers the 3580 over the 2.5x more expensive 8005.

Guys I'm being offered the FX101 for $12, and he's also oferring the SHE3580 for another $9, is adding on the SHE3580 worth it if I am already getting the FX101?

 

Thanks

post #2514 of 26095
I think so, the SHE3580 should be different enough to offer you an alternative on the cheap (think shipping cost savings). You don't really know which you will like better until you listen to them.
post #2515 of 26095

Yea Ill get both, thanks Joe Bloggs!

A friend of mine makes ear molds and has offered to make me one with whatever iem I choose. Since I  am currently poor, what is the best balanced iem under $30? I currently have a pair of Creative EP630 from Dell and like them well enough but they are quite frail feeling so I only use them for bedside listening. 

 

I listen to everything audio. Podcasts, books, music, play games. Probably about 5-6 hrs a day so less fatiguing is great too. I was thinking that the 3850 will probably do fine.

 

Cheers

I like listening to Music more and I am in love. WOW I just can't believe how good these sound. Trust me if you havent picked these up DO IT.

Don't know how long you got them on the burn in Dyjon but those need a thourough burn in. We are talking 100-150 hours minimum. You should hear what my pair sound like. I was listening to them tonight. Just crazy. I was also using them to play some Diablo 3 with. These earphones have such great detail. Gaming on them are perfect.
