Ah, thanks.  Looking forward for your comparison beerchug.gif  with AKG, as you said.

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.

I think the FX700s have a tendency to be even more aggressive than the AKG3003s. At least IMO. I can turn the AKGs up more and not get fatigued while the FX700 it's barely touching the volume before fatigue sets in.... Both bass and treble just get out of hand on the FX700 when turning it up. So for me while it's a very nice IEM I was restricted to very low volume listening. So not for me in the end.

Ok. that's good hear. That's for your inputs lee and james!

yeah... sometimes I feel FX700 has a bit too much bass and covers up other instruments. It's not that it has bad separation.

 

James, do you have an answer for my question

"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?"
 
Also looking forward to your impressions for Sennheiser IE 800 James! Have your tried them yet in stores?

Yeah they are different enough for me to tell them apart by memory. Then again most IEMs are different enough to tell. The sound signatures are not the same if you are meaning this. The AKGs are more on the neutral side while the FX700s are V-shaped. Listening to them on low volume however the FX700s are very neutral.

Oh ok. Well, For example, I had the Monster Turbine Copper for like two years before I bought FX700. From memory, FX700 is more neutral, spacious and has more timbre. Sound signature aside, FX700 definitely has more timbre for some instruments and is more spacious than the Copper.

I think I can imagine the bass quantity. You have both AKG K3003 and JVC FX700? eek.gif

The AKGs still has more bass than the low end sennheisers and sonys right?

and hows the treble AKGs compared to FX700?

I don't have either anymore. The AKGs have a decent amount of bass. Not as much as the FX700. Treble is there in good quantity but doesn't go overboard as much as the FX700s do when you turn the volume up. So you can get away with turning the volume higher on them. On the FX700 both the treble and bass get out of hand when turning the volume up. I'd say the AKGs treble would be more likely to get out of hand if you turn the volume up too loud. Then again you have some headroom for decent volume listening anyways.

I usually listen between 25% to 40% on my iPod outside, since FX700 is really easy to drive.

does  AKGs has more or less bass than the low end sonys and sennheisers right?

and so AKGs are approx equal in treble quantity compared to FX700 in volumes, let's say, normal conversation volumes?

Of course they're different enough to tell them apart from memory, but a volume matched A/B comparison is much more reliable. I have both here, so please PM me if you want me to listen for anything specific. (Let's not derail the IE800 thread any further.)

 

Like I said earlier, the IE800 isn't yet available in Austria (or anywhere else in the EU, afaik).

Is this a typo?

Sennhesier IE 800: Durability

The cable itself is detachable and features an extremely rugged gold plated connection at either end. The headphones are solid and the mesh protection means the IE 800s are among the most rugged in-ear headphones we’ve ever played with. The carry case is still essential, however.

This is not a typo. It's detachable at the Y-splitter, not at the earpieces.

I need these! *drool*

 

I wanted to buy them as I currently had no IEMs but Sennheiser just won't release them and I got tired of waiting, lol. So I spent the money I put aside on a little combo consisting of FX700 (again) and UE900. I hope I will not regret this as soon as the first IE800 reviews pop up...

 

I will start saving some more and eventually replace the FX700 with the IE800 if the price matches the value.

post #359 of 2101

uh, when are these things officially coming out?

post #360 of 2101

Here in the UK they are available for in store collection only, why? It seems Sennheiser is enforcing this.
