JVC's Micro HD Line: HA-FXD80/70/60 - Page 104

I agree that stock tips sound excellent. But small size isn't tight enough for me and highs sound fatiguing + bass loses its punch. Medium size sound excellent, but they are a little big for my ears and i feel pain after using 15 mins. :((((

Did you burn in your pair, plus they are ment to be shallow fit.
post #1548 of 1759

I got them used. I think they have enough hours. Are you sure about shallow fit?

For me it's somewhere between shallow and medium, but definitely doesn't have to be a deep insertion to achieve the best results ;)

I found the solution smile.gif. foam tips from my brainwavz work perfectly. But I had to remove the flexible core to make them fit fxd80 nozzle.

You would at least need 500hr for the fxd80 to achieve maximum sound quality. And yes shallow to med fit gives best result.

I managed somehow to get the sony hybrid tips to fit on my 80's. Out of all the tips I tried, the hybrids gives me the best SQ in bass, mids and highs. The seal I get with these is awesome.

I have no idea how you got those on the 80's, but I think I'll try to do the same thing with my 70's!

Wayne burn in your 70 for 350 more hrs they shine to there full potential then. I just had a listen to my 80 yesterday and I think they finally settled down from being burn in for 500 hrs. And damn do they sound good smily_headphones1.gif. Going to try sony hybrid and see what happens.

I feel like as this thread goes on, the burn-in times just keep increasing and increasing, we're up to 500 hours now! This is going to be a real challenge to my patience when my 80s come in tongue.gif

Burn in is well worth the wait. Be patient and you'll be rewarded.

Let me know what you think of the hybrids. I really like the sony hybrids for most of my IEM's.

Look for post #993. I posted(back then) on how I fit the hybrids on the fxd80.

Ha! That post shows them on the fxd80, but not how you got them on lol!

 

I don't have the sony hybrids any more, but I do have gr07 hybrids, but there is NO way they are getting onto the 70's. I just tried getting the mh1c tips onto the 70's, and that is an exercise in futility as well. I have no idea how you did that.

 

Edit: I have had luck getting the my1c tips and my eb750 tips on now (by folding back the tip so that the "shaft" or whatever it is called is exposed, and then ramming the 70 into it). So we're on our way testing different tips on the 70's :)

 

Edit2: Using the eb750 tips, and this is breathing new life into the 70's for me. I didn't really like using the r1 foam tips on them because they didn't stay in very well and they were itchy. But with these eb750 tips, they are staying in deeply, staying in well (over ears though), and seem to be providing a good seal. The sound is very nice and detailed, and seem to have a fair amount of bass (the E12 is helping there). And for some reason, they are not sounding harsh or sibilant like I recall them being without the foam tips. Having said that, I hardly tip rolled at all because I couldn't get any other tips onto them. So this is very cool. I'm thinking that I might have to pull these 70's off of the "for sale" market!
