I'm not sure yet. I think the D80's sound is more colored though.

Each one has qualities I like better than the other one. 

 

Althought I don't have the FXD70, I know exactly the feeling, the HA S400 is the equivalent (of the FXD70) when compared to the HA S500 (FXD80)

rickdohc I don't know if I can't say more detail and clarity, but the two are tuned differently. Almost like the SM3 and tuned differently from the SM2. To my ears it sounds like there is more soundstage in the D70 than the D80, but the D80 has more space between instruments and a bit more 3-Dish. The highs are somewhat more prominent in the D70, which helps with the clarity. So maybe there is more transparency in the D70, but both are high in details. What I can clearly say at this point is they they don't sound alike at all. Yes, they have the familiar JVC carbon nanatubes house sound, but they don't sound alike. It's not like the EX600 being 80 percent of the EX1000. These two JVC IEMs are tuned differently.

Has anyone noticed that Amazon.com is selling the FXD80?

post #1146 of 1759
Sorry I can't read through 77 pages if this has been covered. But it's mentioned above the S500 is similar to the FXD80. I have and LOVE the S500 would anyone else agree that if I like the S500 i won't regret the purchase of the FXD80? Also I ordered the FX40 which seems to be lost in the mail. Wld I be better off getting my refund and just going with teh FXD80? How do they compare (besides a 80 dollar price difference).

Thanks.

Thanks.

 

The S500 is like a combination of the D80, D70 and even the FX40. The bass would be more inline with the FX40 (except the S500 is definitely more clearer and detailed). Instrument spacing would be similar to the D80, but details in highs I think is more inline with the D70. Mids? Hmmm? I would have to listen to the three again, but it's a mixture. All have the wonderful carbon nanotubes detail and clarity. I do think the D80 and S500 share a more colored sound than the I would say about the D70.

Oh ok thanks. Yea I just finally got something to show up on the tracking on the FX40 so it looks like they are gunna be here in the next two days so I guess I'll play with them for now. Do you agree with this theory of burn in for 200 hours before they sound decent? I thought I heard a difference after some burn in of my s500. I know this is not the FX40 thread but if you wouldn't mind.

For carbon nanotubes I think 200 hours is the "unofficial" magic number. It take those carbon nanotubes a little extra time to really loosing and present its fullest potential.

Sounds like I will have to try the FXD70.

Hey Doc, got a question for you.

 

How would you compare the Ultimate TFi-10 Pro with the S500 in Bass, mids and highs?   are they that good? (TF10)

I'm telling you guys that the FXD70 has some of the best clarity I've heard in a dynamic. It really seems to accentuate mid instruments like organs, keyboards, electric guitars, etc. But only after a good burn-in. I'm surprised that more D70 owners haven't chatted more about its excellent sound quality and how different it is from the D80.
