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.


If you have not been up to date on these lil' monsters, JVC is gonna be releasing soon. Got everyone here drooling esp. Dsnuts. LoL

Personally it seems like over kill for me, but probably will buckle down and give in after reading another of Ds subtle reviews and impressions. biggrin.gif

Those fraken IEMs are too rich for my blood!!! ha

WoW thats some awesome read, really interesting that even with all of our "modern" technologies we still are not able to fully replicate those amazing Damascus CNT blades.

 

Thanks Kiteki for informing us on the historical usage of CNT tech. Crazy stuff indeed. Now all I need is one of them sexy Damascus Swords to make my CNT collection complete. LoL

 

Bring it JVC!!!

It's not complete until JVC makes some pure CNT speakers for the next Sony Vaio laptop, or a bookshelf / full-size speaker, or just a CNT tweeter for DIY.

I have two questions for the people who bought the fxd80. First, if you live in the US, where is the best place to buy them online? I mean which is a trustworthy seller in eBay, Amazon, etc? Secondly, how hard are they to drive from an iPod, iTouch?
post #1343 of 1885

I bought mine directly from JVC themselves, it was all in Japanese and I'm not Japanese, and I had to use a Japanese credit card or it wouldn't work, and send to a Japanese postal address or it wouldn't work, it was a huge hassle and I ended up with a receipt from JVC themselves and a limited edition leather case designed specifically for the JVC FXD80.

 

 

Every ebay seller with positive feedback above 99% and above 50 ratings should be perfectly fine.  There are no fakes of the JVC FXD80.  You can try this seller - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/JVC-HA-FXD80-Z-Dynamic-Closed-Canal-Earphone-Color-Gun-Metallic-/120975060467

 

 

The JVC FXD80 is perfectly fine with weak amplification like smartphones, however similar to the FXT-90 it loves some extra voltage and current.  Not the Fiio E6 I mean a real amplifier, so then you're spending at least the same price twice for chasing the last ~15% performance.

 

 

For a V-shaped signature the FXD80 is stil severely overlooked in my view.  I really need to review it.

post #1344 of 1885

I mean, if you listen to Jazz... perhaps this is not your kind of IEM, but Ericp10 loves it to death and he only listens to Jazz!!

 

 

If you watch a lot of movies, this is a killer IEM for that, especially action.

 

 

If you like complex electronic music, once more it's a killer in the clarity and bass quality, it's like a diamond hand wearing a feather glove.

 

 

While it's a little difficult, if you wear the FXD80 over-ear style, and push it very deep in your canal (make sure there's no wax), then you're welcomed to a new level of intimacy you won't even hear in $3000 full-size headphones.

 

 

If the sound of the FXD80 could fill an entire room, I wonder how much those speakers would cost?

 

 

The only caveat of the FXD80 to keep in mind is it's distinctly V-shaped.  Yes, the neutral vocals are in full attendance, they're just getting shouted over by the sub-woofer and the diamond tweeter.

+1

I've moved away from v sigs but the fxd80 was the best. Even though recessed the mids were very detailed.

Good news for us Europeans. Both the FRD80Z and the FRD60Z are advertised at JVC Europe homepage. Spanish links:

http://jsp.jvc-europe.com/product.php?id=HA-FRD60-E&catid=100128
 

 

No FRD70. mad.gif

 

So far I haven't been able to find a retailer thar carries them here.

Seems like the FXD80 excitement has died down around here............... just in time for JVC's next high-tech statement.

I think the FXD series was definitely a FOTM. They aren't bad per say, but won't be classics like the GR07. 

 

Been listening today

FXD60-bloated bass, offensive treble

FXD70-bass is nice, noticably less than the other 2, but the treble is metallic, sharp midrange. 

FXD80-2nd bassiest, still bloated IMO. Treble is almost like the 70's, maybe a bit smoother

All are recessed in the midrange, with the 70 being the least. 70 is noticeably the best IMO.

Due to my new xba3's, my new fxd70's (and new mh1c's and new r1's lol) haven't been getting as much attention as they should be.

 

One issue I was having with the fxd70's was the brightness. I threw on the r1 foam tips onto the 70's though, and wow, the brightness is controlled and now I can really appreciate them.

post #1350 of 1885

cool suggestion, you also inspired another idea, which I will get back into later. I honestly won't bother listening to the 80s and 60s anymore, like the Earpods more (even more than MH1)

 

The XBA3 and the H100 seem to be the better v-shaped IEMs out there.
