JVC earphone HA-FX40

 

So I got a set of these and tried them out.  At first I thought DSNUTS was nuts since these sounded terrible to me.  They sounded tinny with a very bright high end.  I then set the eq on my iPod Classic to Treble Reduce and then it sounded a lot better.  I run them from my iPod to my Voyager amp which tames the sound even more since it's a warmer sounding amp.  I also changed the tips to Comply TX-400 foam tips which I use for most if not all my IEMs.  Now they do sound quite good for a $20 earphone.  I like the detail in these and the bass is quite full.  They sound a lot better to me over time and I enjoy them more every day.  I think they are only good for certain types of music like Pop, light Rock and Jazz.  Overall an excellent buy for around $20.

Yeah I had the FX31 which is basically a slightly higher end version of the FX40; similar sound signatures with a bit more detail and refinement. They sounded like they took a pair of very good-sounding, slightly v-shaped earphones, and then added a treble booster EQ. Thankfully the frequency response is actually quite smooth (no big spikes or dips) so with a treble reducing EQ they sound very good.

There are bassier headphones out there but to me if the mids and highs don't have good presence then they will be lacking..

 

If your a fan of deep rumble but also want full mids and non fatiguing highs the WS99. If you want a higher end audio experience and don't mind a little sound leak to achieve a grander stage the X1 the bass end is not enough for big bass fans but what is there is excellent. It is a complete package in sound...

 

I think both are excellent cans..the X1 is not portable however and the WS99 is are easier to drive over the X1.  More isolation the bigger bass helps drown out street noise on the WS99. The X1 makes for  an excellent home listening experience the WS99 is more versatile as they can be used on the go or at home.

 

I just did a quick A/B and my thoughs were correct on the bass difference. The WS99 has more bass emphasis. The real shocker here is the X1 is not too far off.. WS99 has the sub bass region as well but the X1 is not too far off but has that air/ space  with that bass which to my ears is something wicked. Lol.

 

 

Agree! And yes, I have both too. So the X1 hit me for $286, then in a few days dropped to like $275. I contacted amazon and they refunded me the difference. Now in two days since I've owned them they'll dropped another $18. I was thinking about hitting amazon again, but the X1 is clearly worth $275, and an insane bargain at $257. I've already started the intense the burn-in process, and fear that amazon will tell me to send them back and buy over again to get the $18 discount. Not worth the hassle the second time around. If you can, buy these headphones!! Now I'm interested in the headphones under the X1. I'm still not interested in the S2 though, Dsnuts. My earphones cravings is satisfied with the AS-2, V6, H200 and RE400 .....Well... I'm Onkyo fan so I will purchase their earphone when it comes out next week. I can't see myself reaching for anymore headphones either. X1, WS99, and A900x are really satisfying.

S500, M-50 and Creative Live available for sale if anyone is interested. Inbox me. Good phones but not my favorite sound signatures, or I found something better. No rush. Happy listening.

P.S. Get the AD900X
P.P.S. Sorry tongue.gif

Luckily the AD900X don't suit my taste going by people's descriptions of them. I'm strictly an IEM person now as well.

Im laughing so hard right now. I just solved the d r iver "flex" problem. Guys, just reinsert the original tips of the bassos/tenores and this "driver flex" problem leaves. I tested it on bot u sides of the phones. It hurt like an inferno when I inserted the earphones with bruteforce, but it was for you guys! Unfortunately, removing them still causes that noise, but it works! I think changing tips works well

That stage is pretty freaking great... Enjoy my friend and give us some impressions.

I definitely believe it. I just can't believe how these sound on open box, I can't even imagine them with 200 hours! atsmile.gif

To me they sound like the CKN70s on steroids, but maybe I'm crazy xD I have no idea how you can stick to IEMs, I've been going crazy without a pair of over-ears!

Got my new addition today...

 Won't have a chance to try them out for a bit but they are handsome and they do have larger housings and now their nice cable has a lower profile RA plug. So far so good!

A bit off topjc, but this is surely the place to ask such a question. Seeing as this is pretty much the "imported via tenso thread" I wanted to know whats the most my fellow NA'cans have spent on japanese goods and avoided custom fees?  Wanted to buy something for $220, but if customs fee is applied I'm better off buying domestic.

I have to burn them in in my bedroom. When I'm at work I don't reeally care if it's loud, but I like to burn my headphones when I go to bed too. I fall asleep with the TV on, so they don't have to be completely silent, but I don't wanna hear them over my TV. I tried wrapping them in a blanket and it didn't do anything xD
