New to the forum here, discovered this thread cuz was doing some research on the Tt isurus that I got on sale for $10 a while back LoL. And it has been truly a joy reading Dsnuts' spot on hype/ impressions on all these cheapo IEMs.   It's impossible to not give in, I BELIEVE!!! ha

 

And on that note, no doubt I already got myself 2 pairs of the jvc 101's and 40's, they're that awesome sauce. Both have had lots of burn in/ ear time so their sound are pretty mature on my sets.  As of now the 40s are my favorite out of the 2 but the 101's are sounding closer/ more similar to the 40's by the day with that amazing bass. I think my ears are officially messed up. basshead.gif

 

Both the 40's and 101's can seem "bright" with piercing sibilance, but it's only true because your music files are of low quality or was not mastered properly.  These jvc IEMs are really revealing and not forgiving on badly mastered music but they are AMAZING when the music is recorded right. 

 

A great example of this is Stateless "Matilda" album, truly sex for my ears with these jvc's. 

 

"Bright" with sibilance due to bad mastering?

 

 

Oh btw the Tts can't even hold a candle next to these jvc's, I can't even listen to them anymore cuz the 40's has ruined/ spoiled them for me ha.

Agreed. It shows you just how much more SQ we get from previous generations of earphones..The FX101 is sneaky. Just when you think they take second to the FX40 you listen to them again and it is on again. Lol Both are excellent for the little cash payed that is for certain.

The sonys are in. Just opened the package now and listened for about 10 minutes. I would agree with dannybai and dsnuts that these are smooth. The Sub bass are the main focus here. Just deep pounding. The mids are not recessed. Highs are silky smooth but lacks a bit of extension. Nonetheless, these are like a basshead audiophiles dream come true. The bass alone is worth the price. Certainly sounds like the xb1000 without recessed mids and highs. The presentation and soundstage is very good too. Doesnt sound congested. Will burn in for a few days and come back. Pics to follow later when i get home. BOOM BOOM POW!

Ministry of sound sounds freaking good in these! Such an amazing experience! lol

Glad you got yours marlonmarabe.  These babies need to be well known because they are "a basshead audiophiles dream come true" as you put it so well.  Not that Sony needs anymore help from consumers but these suckers need to be in more ears for the experience of killer bass.

Oh man oh man these sony's and the JVC HA-FDX 60/70/80's can't come stateside fast enough, must resist..............until then!!!

 

How comfortable are the sonys cuz they look pretty massive/ bulky?

The entire driver does not go into the ear canal like traditional dish dynamics. The sound nozzle is to the side and these are comfy as it gets really. The design is quite genius actually. If these had go into your ear canal like a traditional dish type dynamic ie AT or TT earphone. You would have to have some large ears. The way these fit are much like other Sony dynamics. Sideways into your ear with the nozzle at the end of it.

 

So update. I am going on 40 hours of straight burn in and I have to say. These are sounding better and better. In fact. I can officially say these are tops for me for bassy earphones..Even beating out my CKS77 and yes the FX3X.  The massive sound stage and depth is something else. Just immerses you into the tunes. I noticed the highs are getting more articulate as burn in ensues.. The sound tuning is meticulous on these. Just because these are bass earphones. You guys can throw out your idea of what proper bassy is until you hear these.

 

These sound great on my entire collection on my Sony Z1060. The synergy is amazing.. No bass boost needed. Lol.  I can tell you guys these are definitely my favorite Sony sound I have ever heard from Sony..These are the very definition of high end bass earphones.(Musical). These let you get immersed into your tunes. You are surrounded by your music. Just an absolutely beautiful non fatiguing sound.

 

There is no obligation, no commitment to this sound. It is just pure enjoyment. I know guys have followed my CKS77 thread and I have to say these are the official upgrades to that sound..The CKS77 have many similarities to these new Sony XB90 but the tuning on these Sonys are at a higher level..I can tell the quality of the 16mm Dynamic driver that is being used in these are tops. Just enjoyableX10. These weren't made to be reference or neutral or anything of the sort. These were made so you can feel your basslines and get lost in your music.I think these have the best mids I have heard to date on a bass earphone which makes all my tunes sound proper and not overly bass heavy.  But when a bass line calls for power. POWER is what you get.  These are what you need on a vacation. These are what you listen to sippin on a margarita enjoying your music..

Kinda somewhat related to this thread as the FX40 use carbon nanotubes. I just got these.

Haven't even opened them. Carbon nanotubes FTW!!

The poor isolation on the Sony 1000's killed that one for me. How your new Sony's in that regard?

post #2801 of 26088

Step aside!!! Looks like we have a new BASS king to be crowned. 

 

+1 on the noise isolation question on these bad bois.

 

@ DannyBai how do these sonys compare to the JVC HA-FXD60's since you mentioned that their sound departs from the JVC HA-FXD80/70's with more of the mainstream consumer flavor?

Isolation is average. They do have air vents on the back of the housing for staging and sound tuning I suppose but nothing some bass can't block out basshead.gif

 

New thread guys..http://www.head-fi.org/t/621063/the-new-jvc-ha-s500-carbon-nantubes#post_8581957 Cuz these deserve it.

Well, I just did some comparisons with the FXD60 and XB90EX.  Surprisingly, the XB90's has more treble sparkle but I hear slightly more micro details coming from the D60's.  I can tell that the D60's have deep soundstage when comparing the two.  The Sony's are wider but the JVC's go about as deep.  The JVC's sound more laid back when compared.  The bass note is thicker and there's mid-bass present unlike the Sony's.  Vocals are more forward on the Sony's but the JVC's are softer.  The things I miss when not listening to other earphones in my inventory.  The XB90EX's are bar-none the best sub-bass earphones I've heard.  So far, I'm favoring the XB30EX over the 60 because it's a little more balanced but the bass does get in the way more on the 30's and 60's (more from the 60's) and the 90's just pounds out sub-bass and nothing else is ruined by it.  I've only touched the JVC's a couple of times in the last couple of weeks but I tend to gravitate towards the 60's because it's just more fun to listen to.
