The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 179

post #2671 of 26100
I was worried that they would be fake after buy them therefore I checked a video at youtube about this. I checked the tips to know that they are not fake and I would say 95% fir sure that everything looks genuine. But I have several complains because the cable is white near the jack when it is gray really because was over torsioned when was stored . the silver box do not close tight himself and fall apart "easily" and the logo in thevsilcer box is a little twisted but I would say that thebsoynd is great after a month. Maybe I would need to compare thenm with a shure or Wellstone to be sure but I do know to anybody who have them.

They are factory rejects meaning. They have imperfections. I know there are a few guys selling boxed pairs on the forums here. Try those instead. The Factory rejects are cheap for a reason. They don't come with all the tips and have minor imperfections and all of them require burn in for them to sound right..They are a nice upgrade to the FX101 or the FX1X in sound. If you can fine a used boxed pair that is even better.

This isn't really a discovery, but i found my UE200s i impulse-bought at an airport before departure a couple years ago. I  listened to them for a grand total of 30 minutes then stuffed them back in the box and enjoyed my vacation.

 

I burned them in for about 15 hours, and i've been listening them for the past day or two. I must say, I really like them quite a lot.

Does anyone else own these? i paid $35 at the airport by the looks of the price tag, but the old version with "logitech" on them (not mine) are $17 on amazon. I'm not sure if they're the same, it appears they changed the accessories and the little branding. But if they're the same phones, $17 is a steal.

 

I almost like them more than the FX101s, they're a tad bit more balanced and sibilance free- less bassy but they can dig into the sub bass if needed.

 

I was also at Fry's the other day and picked up a pair of JVC flats for giggles. the 160 - current model for $17. Those are pretty darn good too! I'd say similar performance sound-wise as the porta pros and px100 but at 1/2 the price.

I did try this music on TF10, X10, GR02 Bass, M4….none of them extend and rumbles the bass as FX101 does….for electro FX101 has become my bass specialty IEM.....I find almost same kind of rumble with D2k…

for better isolation I did try Sony hybrids but to my surprise…there was no more rumbles…wide stock tips is best on them…

Well there is 2 choices both are upgrades to the FX101. The FX3X. Rare yes and these are the the highest end JVC bass earphones and a direct competitor to the CKS77.  Either way you guys can't go wrong with either the JVC FX3X and or the ATH-CKS77.  If you guy can get the FX3X for cheaper than a boxed pair of the CKS77 I would try them out. IF you guys can get a used pair of CKS77 for cheaper I would try those.

The older FX3X was the higher end FX1X a much more refined version in sound and materials used, the newest being the FX101. What is the difference?  Bigger thicker wider sound for one. Even deeper bass over the FX101 as they use Carbon drivers. For guys that like what the FX101 does the FX3X is the direct upgrade over the FX101 even though it is an older earphone.  The sound tuning is similar to the FX101 but the dynamics are 2X more so. The biggest difference between the FX1X and the FX3X is the sounds on the FX3X are tight and much cleaner in overall presentation. Stage is very similar however.

 

Bigger 10mm Carbon drivers and a metal housing contribute to the higher end JVC bass earphone sound. The guys that ended up getting them liked them much but they do need a solid burn in as they exhibit some spikes in the upper registers on open box. They smooth out with good burn in. Worth the money spent on ordering them from over seas. Somewhat of a rare earphone actually. Not too many have them.

 

The reason why these are worth your hard earned cash is because I challenge anyone to put these FX3X against any bassy earphone and you guys will be surprised. To me these are so much better sounding than the MG7s, MMDTs, and competes very well against my CKS77s..I consider these one of the best bass earphones out there.

wow thanks looks like il grab the fx3x then.as i love my 101s and my fx1x
post #2683 of 26100

Dsnuts...thanks....right now I am happy with 101s....fx3x will be my next buy....

post #2684 of 26100

If the fx3x doesn't work out for any of the guys looking for a fx101 upgrade, try the cks77 as D's recommended, you really will love them  :)

post #2685 of 26100

How would the fx3x compare directly to the cks77? im assuming smaller soundstage, but the fit may be better on the jvc's.
