Any other recommendations would be great! 

i'm assuming you have the fxd80 , not sure if the other versions tips are different

 

your friend tried all the tips? even the large ones?

They are the same tips as these.

They are the best tips I've tried.

Comply foam tips are great as well but breaks down too fast and cost too much.

I got them a week ago, and have been burning in at night and listening during the day. I love these. Such a great compliment to my warmer headphones. So much detail. Honestly, I wish I bout 2 at the price ($40cdn).

My brother said the sound is like it was coming through a tube. He didn't like them (he prefers his sony xb-30 I think they are), I'm sguessing a fit issue. Also, Rap/Hip-hop doesn't really work with these. Too much sibilance, even when playing straight off of a CD (the ENTIRE genre isn't very well recoreded I guess) For everything else I've heard, it's sooooo good.

I will try some other Rap/Hip-Hop albums in the furture but for now, I'm off to listen to some Hatsune Miku, which isn't -surprisingly- sibilant considering her sometimes cold, robotic voice.

For me it fares really well for very fast paced rapping that focuses on lyrical content, the clarity helps enjoy the rapper's voice. Really nice when listening to some of my favorite Korean rap that samples Korean music and sounds so the treble is really fun!

i agree in some sense

 

its very fast for kpop and good to separate the raps from the actual bgm.

 

but for more vocal based songs i just cold feeling

 

their voices are not engaging, their clear but unnatural (a/bing them with my vsonic gr07 be, hifiman re400, showed me that)

 

even when listening with the turbines the i actually prefer the warm midrange on the turbines

 

love the highs though but i could here a drop in the extension right after the mid treble and a huge spike up. great extension (still a bit bright for even now) i wonder if i really burn them in it would fix that. i only burned them in for maybe 8-10 hours and listened to them maybe 5-6 hours since

 

but as it moves from the midrange to the treble as a whole it was a pretty steady climb. 

 

the bass is very very punchy (almost a bit too punchy for me) but it is very fast and scales pretty low too. not as tight as the gr07 or the re400s but very fun =) and more controlled than my monster turbines.

So I tried some more Rap/Hip-Hop albums. Outkast's discography, Killer Mike's R.A.P Music, Gangstarr's Moment of truth and Kendrick Lamar's GKMC. Outkast sounds great, and El-P's quick hitting production on R.A.P Music sounds great. It's so fast and detailed. I don't have Moment of truth in good quality (torrented it while I look for a physical copy around my city) and it shows. The beat's on some of Kendrick's songs become very sibilant for me.

On a side note, I let my mom listen to some indian (hindi) music on these. She was amazed with them. Even she noticed the sound stage lol. That fact alone is amazing to me haha (gonna have to post this in the non audiophile reactions thread)

I will try out some more, but with rock, nu-metal and pop, these things rule. Jazz sounds great too.

If anyone cares, listen to a few Hatsune Miku songs (Vocaloid). Her voice can be sharp, but never fatiguing, and I love it.

Ah, I'm no good at hindi (don't speak it, not hindu lol) but here's my best attempt at spelling the movie name. Don't laugh haha

Dil Ka Kia Kasoor.

 

On a sort of related note, Radioactive by Imagine Dragons sounds awesome on these. I know the song is wicked overplayed by now but dang does it sound good on these.

post #1721 of 1836
Is that a new movie 😊
post #1722 of 1836

I'm not too sure. I'd bet not though, as my mom tends to listen to older hindi music.

So futureshop has put these on again for 40 cdn. I wanted to pick another one up as a back up but unfortunately they can't seem to get any in stock. Currently sold out. I hate my luck. Daft punk is so good with these. I'd hate to lose an eartip and have the whole experience ruined. I NEED a back up (my justification to spend more money on these haha)

How would the HA-FXD80 fare against the Shure SE215? Would getting the FXD80 be an upgrade or downgrade?

I never compared them side by side ( i own the fxd80). This is based on memory so forgive me. I felt the shure was really lacking in treble compare the jvcs. Made the shures seem really boring to me. But the mids from what i recall was much better in terms of thickness and naturalness. The jvcs mids are really clear, but recessed but vocals sound unnatural to me. Males especially. Female vocals were def more prominent but still sounded off a bit. Only really noticeable when a/bing tbh.

Bass i feel like the jvcs would reach lower. More rumble, with the shures being more punchy.

Jokers review would help u more, he tried both and reviewed both.

But the shures excell in smoothness for sure
