JVC's Micro HD Line: HA-FXD80/70/60 - Page 97

post #1441 of 1759

So the foam tips finally arrived last night. They're a massive improvement over the stock tips. Firstly: I used the medium stock tips as they fit the best out of the 3 but still fit poorly. Worn over the ear for deeper insertion. 
The bass has improved immensely, probably because i get a proper seal now. Bass was non-existent worn down, somewhat existent worn over the ear. With the foam tips and over the ear, bass is amazing as everyone has said. Finally the rumbling sub-bass(?) i've been looking for. No change in the mids other than they sound they sound more forward. The once piercing highs are no more, thankfully. Isolation and fit are also better but i guess that's to be expected with foam tips. Oh and driver flex has pretty much disappeared which is a massive plus.

Is that with the 70's or 80's? Regardless, good description - that is exactly my experience with the 70's when I switched to using the R1's foam tips.

Woops. Forgot to mention I have the D80s.

Found this while surfing the interwebs

http://www.thesource.ca/estore/product.aspx?language=en-CA&catalog=Online&category=Earbud+Headphones&product=8006629

Didn't know the FXD series has landed in Canada. Odd that it says FD60 instead of FXD60 or am I missing something here...
Gives me hope for the other JVC headphones arriving in Canada.

It looks the same to me.  My guess is that the FD60 has the remote function and the FXD60's do not.

Then shouldn't it be FRD60? I think the XD series with the remote functions are called RDx0. Oh well, just nitpicking at nothing tongue.gif 

Something else regarding the foam tips, I now use the mediums because they allow for a much deeper insertion. The sound is amazing. It makes me think that my EPH-100s are too warm and...kinda cluttered.

I do not use foam tips and don't have any to try out but I've heard from others that it works well too.  And yes, these do make the EPH's sound warm compared.  I still really liked the EPH when I had it but the FXD's sound better to me.

Oh sorry, I meant that as a general thread comment. I love both of them but currently, I think I like the D80s more. They just sound more spacious and airy to me. I've gone back to the stock tips on the EPH which seemed to make it less warm and cluttered.

Which would be the best way to order these if you're from Europe(more precisely, Sweden)?
As I've understood it, there's pretty much two options: ebay or amazon.jp using Tenso. I assume you save money by using the latter option, but how much? 
Can any europeans recount their experiences? How did you order, how much did it end up costing? 


Also, my right ear canal is pretty small. How much of a problem will this be? I don't listen for hours, mostly from/to school and a bit during lessons. They don't have to fit perfectly, but as long as it doesn't hurt and they don't fall out I'm happy.

I just bought a set of S/M/L Comply T-500s. I noticed under Comply's "tip finder" they had the FXD80 listed, so I decided I'd give the foam tips a shot. None of the stock tips fit my ears, Sony's hybrid tips don't fit the FXD80, and the Ultimate Ears UE350 silicon tips I'm using now fit fine, but they fall out easily. Have to push them in real far for a stable fit.

 

Paid $11.95 with a $3 off coupon code plus free shipping.

So I'm letting my friend borrow the S500s for a while and I am borrowing his FXD80s. So far I'm actually pretty impressed with them. They are a little sharper than what I'm used to, but I'm sure I'll grow accustom to it. The highs are more extended as a result. I'll post back once I've had more time with them.

Hi, i have fxd80 and they are terrible. Sounds grainy and tiny and doesnt matter which tip size i try. They fall out of ears too.
So i wanted use another tip- but because of odd nozzle it isnt possible.
So my question is, which tip i can use with it? Why they just doesnt use nozzle like on fx40?

You're obviously not wearing them right if they fall out of you ears.

They fall out when i am moving. I actually tried it with fiio e6 on eq through rockboxed ipod classic. Suddenly they sound much fuller with decent bass. About she3590 level only grainier. So probably i have right fit?
