So how do they hold up against other $50 phones then?

I still haven't gotten around to ordering the vsonic gr02 bass, which was supposed to be my next cheapie. I need to update my "to-buy" list if there's anything new out.

I just got the HA-FX101s because of this thread, and I've been listening to them for the past hour or so. All I can say is: DAT BASS. James Blake's Limit to your Love sounds amazing using these. In terms of bass, these blow my old Meelec M9s out of the water. The only negative is that highs are quite harsh, with some bad sibilance during "s" sounds in lyrics. Hopefully burning them in will even that out.

It does get better with burn in, but is still a little edgy in the high end as part of it's signature... it really depends on what you're coming from though. I got the FX40s first, and the FX101s sounded super smooth in comparison (sibilance-wise), but i went back to the SHE3580 and the FX101 sounded sibilant by comparison... listening to my new-ish ASG-1s (rolled off highs) then my FX101s (pocket phones) it's even more apparent.

 

I think it's just part of the FX-101's sound and i don't have a huge problem with it for the sound they deliver at that price.

Hey guys I'm interested in buying some of those FX40s myself but I can't get them in New Zealand Cheaper than $40, I want to create a listing but it says I can't because of some rule, I've posted more than 25 times, idk what to do

Glad you posted, saw your post the other day but was in a rush and forgot to reply.  I recall you asking for someone to buy and ship you a pair, I could do it but the problem is I don't know how this transaction is handled here on this site.

For the guys that have heard both the fx 101, and the fx1x, does the 101 have fuller mids? or  the the same or worse than the 1x?

Yeah, it's a lot better already after 3 or 4 hours. I couldn't use these headphones for more than 15 minutes earlier, now I could probably use them for hours and be alright. They're still a bit edgy sounding, but I'm sure they'll get better in the next few days.

@qusixx

Hey there, umm perhaps we could continue this conversation via PM's.

If you could tell me what price your asking for,

Whether the eartips are used,

And shipping price,

that would be great

post #2606 of 25627

anyone can compare the fxd60 to other similar priced,fx40, or even the ckm300?

besides soundstage how much different are the fx101 to the cks77?

post #2607 of 25627

The CKS77 are smoother and fuller sounding.. The 101s can be sibilant.. The 77s never are.. They also are overall clearer.. They aren't too far off from each other on a scale of 1 to 10.. Maybe 1 full point off but I wouldn't disagree with anyone who preferred the 101s over the 77s.. To my ears the 77s were the better IEM though =)

crazy that I have all of them in my possession.  I think the fx40 is the better value over the fxd60.  It sounds cleaner and more detailed.  The ckm300's are not too far off from the ckm500 and I really do like the sound.  The cks77's are far better than the fx101's.  The 77's might be the best one of the bunch here if you don't mind the big bass.  

post #2609 of 25627

I see, I do have the ckm500 and enjoy them... but being stamped more balanced i thought the fx101 would be way bassy, and i have heard bass phones before but they are either lacking clarity or too sibilant. im still happy with the jvc because i got the mic version, but now i considering either the fx40 for true clarity/balance and the cks77 for the real punch.

i did have the she3580 but the she9700 really impressed me.

I have them all except the FXD60, and you have just describe my exact thoughts on these phones.

The CKS77 and FXD80 covers the full spectrum for me, with the CKM500 in between these two should the need arise. beyersmile.png
