post #2551 of 25631

I ain't going through the whole thread to find this out so can anyone help me out?
Is the FR201 Microphone version the same as the HAFX101 then in sound-quality? Also will be using the HTC EVO 3D, so will there be any compatibility problems?

Well even after my disappointment with the ckm500 I bought another dsnuts recommendation. The fx40s are on the way. For 20 bucks I thought why not :)

Ya and this time you have to trust me one more time and burn them in. It is a shame you didn't give the CKM500 a fair shake. One of my faves of all time for sure. But these FX40 well lets just say if you like clean sound. Clean sound you get and everything else is right with the universe including very nice imaging. The FXD80 I am enjoying too much. Just fantastic.

 

I bet if you end up liking this cheapo sound you will definitely be interested in the FXD80. Burn in with lots of drum and bass heavy tracks fairly loud %70-80% of full volume. Do this for the necessary 100 hours. The sounds will definitely change to what I am hearing now I am around 300 plus on mine. Fantastic sound. I even use it for gaming. Pin point accuracy using these. It is nuts.

Don't know the whole story but why don't you get the FX101 instead?
-edit nvm, don't even know what the FX40 are.

But phone calls on the FR201 does not sounds as natural as the SHE8005, you can hear what's been said but it appears to be coming out of a long tube, the SHE8005 however are far behind the FR201 when it comes to music listening.

 

I have found that plugging in a TRS jacked phone which states Ipod compatibility into a later model Android phone does work, whether a mic(TRRS) or non-mic(TRS) version, just watch out for the respective and correct 'headphone with mic' or 'headphone only' icon to appear on the handset and you're good to go.

See above post from a few pages back. It should answer your questions.

Although I believe that burn in does affect the drivers, Im not a believer that burn in will completely change the sound of the IEM. To the point where I really dont like them after 20 hours and love them after 100 hours.. I do think brain burn in does play a big role though. Either way I will give these a much longer listen than the ckm500 and see what happens. For now Im listening to the re262 that I just got today and I dont think these will be out of my ears for a long time lol.

Hopefully you like them. I haven't tried the fx40 (yet) but I remember when I first got the fx101 I tried them out and thought that they were very underwhelming. I let them burn in for the next 3 days before I tried them again and at that point I could hear everything that people had praised them for. Let us know what you think of them once you've given them a bit of time.

I may just go for the FX101s. What are the microphonics like and are the mids and highs good? I've seen a few reviews saying that the mids and highs are 'muddy' and that the cable is flimsy/picks up a lot of noise? Not sure if this is just morons reviewing them or what.

 

I have two quick questions; are the FX101s better sound-wise than the SoundMAGIC E10s and are the housings smaller/less bulky?

post #2560 of 25631

roughly the same size housing to the e10's, the 101's are a bit wider.

 

The cable isnt great, but i havent had any problems with microphonics.  I do wish they had used the cable from the original 1x1.

 

The mids to me are good as are the highs, bass is insane.

Ya this level of quality bass earphone does not exist at this price range. Well that is until now.. For the price payed what not to like. Especially guys that love their bass.

post #2562 of 25631

So the JVC FX101 are bass monsters and the FX40 detail oriented?

So the FX40 more instruments and vocals but does bass heavy genres very well. One of the best earphones for gaming too I might add. Faster speed over the FX101 and the better technical earphone. But the FX101 has the bigger bass rumble.

 

The FX101 bassy music EDM, hiphop. but does intruments and vocals well too.. Both does one better over the other so they compliment each other as both have a different sound signature.

E10's housing is smaller, far less bulky then FX101. E10 is the better sounding IEM imo. You get what you pay for.

I'm just sick of the E10s breaking; for me, the build quality has been horrible. First time the right earbud sound cut out due to the 'nozzle' coming away from the housing and now the same thing has happened again. I handle my earbuds with care and the same thing happens twice.
