I do like the sound signature of JVC FX 700 though. Is the sound signature similar for both iems?
And how much of a difference is there between these two iems? I know that's a hard question to answer.
Basically, my question is are you able to tell the difference between these two iems from memory, not compare them side by side?
For example, I'm able to tell the difference between monster turbine copper and JVC FX700 from memory. JVC has more timbre, more spacious, more treble, less mids... etc.
Like I said in Joker's thread, where you asked the same question, I agree with his comparison, but think that the K3003 have flatter lows than the FX700, with less upper bass emphasis, which makes them less V-shaped and leaves more room and clarity for the mids. Treble is actually pretty similar, prominent, clean, detailed and smooth, even though one is BA and the other DD. The FX700 may sound a bit more open and spacious, but not by much. Timbre is very good on both.
Overall there's a good chance you might like the K3003, imo, if you love the FX700 and just wished they had a little less prominent upper bass, slightly more vocal presence and a tad better isolation.
