haha that damn cheapo fx40s was what got me into all this JVC cnt madness as well. Never imagined iems could sound that good for so little, that fx40 was truly a gateway drug to higher sound and $$$ iem purchases. Pun intended. Now I can't get off this high, I know now why they call it hi-fi. LoL

oh yeah I forgot to lay all this blame on dsnuts, he is the worst!!! biggrin.gif

Tomscy said the FXD70 is more closed in sounding I think, he didn't seem to like them very much.

 

 

The FXD80 has nicely controlled bass with good quality, and focuses more on the sub-bass rather than hitting hard in the mid or upper bass like most cheap bass heavy IEM's, so it's not exactly a typical bass heavy IEM I agree with you there, but the bass is a tiny bit too much for me for extended listening and I'd prefer more forward mids.

 

Since you listen to 90% jazz IIRC perhaps you don't notice the bass very much, like you would in psytrance etc.

Carbon Nanotube really was first used in the 1600's btw guys.

Talking about the FXD80....

OK. I've given them a few months, and... 

- I can't get them to fit comfortably (although this is also true for many, many IEMs that I've tried)
- The sound is not at all to my taste: Lean LF that gives way to a slightly pink midrange and finally an unnatural & rather gritty treble that just refuses to roll off gracefully and die. Yuk.
On the plus side they do seem well made (but since I never wear them...), and the box they came in is pretty nice (not the standard JVC thing)

I just don't get on with these :-)  

I need another pair of FXD-90s!

(edited for clarity)

Did you get the FXD80? Man I would love to buy it off of if you don't like it that much. Too bad you live all the way at Jpn and I am in Cali. :(

Last post not clear. Sorry. I was talking about the FXD80 in that last post. PM me your address, and I'll post them to you (not including the fancy case, which I will keep:-)). Will have to find the things first!

No problem. Much better than seeing them go to waste. I hope you enjoy FXD-80s.

I really love the FXD-90s, and it seems JVC will soon be rolling out some "high-end" IEMs, But I will definitely have a good long listen to those before parting with the cold hard.
