JVC, I find that the initial push in of the earphones works, but gradually they come out, so I want one that stays in without further push ins.
Where could I get these from?

Have you tried their smallest tips?
post #2643 of 25973

All of them, and none of them work for me, so what ear tips do u recommend?

I have had very good results with sony hybrids on all my iem 's including the fx 101 and SHE 3580.

Speaking of the SHE3580, those don't fall off?  How about putting SHE3580 tips on the FX101 (edit: Omnom?) ?

I don't have any issues with them falling off . The stock 3580 tips were worthless for me. Surprisingly though, the stock FX 101 tips sealed very well. The sonys seem to bring out a bit more bass though which is my peference.

I have the FX101 and I just got the CKM500. I am debating buying the FX40 just because and am wondering how it compares to the CKM500. Is it different enough to justify the purchase?

The FX40 are worth trying out especially if you can get them for $21 or so. See that isn't the issue. It is how guys get very impressed with the sound and then they get curious about he FXD70 and then the FXD80.  These are the JVC trojan horse. Be warned.

I did some more listening on my HA-FX40, and the treble was too much. I now have great preference for the Panasonic RP-HJE355 instead.

Umm, pretty hard to put them on put ill try, 

But just saying these earphones are amazing, especially the bass,

I really notice the difference between the 2, the FX101 having more sub-bass that gets in your head!!!

But you can definitely tell its on the SHE3580 as well!!

Thanks Dsnuts, another great recommendation,

Now I'm kind of interested in getting those FX40s just to see what they're like

post #2651 of 25973

Ok the fx101 has arrived. Out of the box I like them a lot but they certainly have a v-shaped sound signature. So much so that the bass overpowers the mids ever so slightly making them sound boomy. They aren't TOO boomy but they're not tight. I don't mind the recessed mids too badly. They are pretty smooth. Highs are not tinny at all and sound very nice, actually. 

 

After about 90 hours of burn-in on the HA-FX40, I am very impressed by the change I'm hearing. The change from yesterday to today has probably been the biggest. They lack most of their sibilance, bass is nice and punchy, and mids are fairly neutral. I'ld say that these earphones are VERY neutral from what I'm hearing and imagine after another 50-100 hours they will be even more so from the change I've heard. I am very impressed, nearly floored, by how good these sound at this price. I'll probably buy another FX40 after the burn-in is complete just in case. ;)

 

Thanks Dsnuts! Your recommendations have been pretty stellar.

 

I really can't wait until my GR07 arrives to compare them to my well-burned HA-FX40. I think they may sound pretty similar.

Can anyone compare the FX-101 and the SHE3580s?

Also I can get the Monster Turbines really cheaply, so would they be a step up from these iems or would they actually not sound as good?

 

 

Thanks in Advance

post #2655 of 25973

Well, i definitely an tell that using my ipod, the FX101s are much louder at the same volume, and they definitely have more bass that can be quite fatiguing at times, its head rattling.

Haven't really used them much, but Im sure there are plenty out there who have
