i dont care about Lil Wayne, not my kind of music.. but using one song,  Lollipop the diference between the Riptidz and the Fx101 are.

 

FX101.  the kickdrum and the bass notes,    the" kick" of the kickdrum giving the beat that you can feel,  and a "layer" of the bass notes going low can be heard clearly. both of them rumbling and kicking clearly,    With the Riptidz its more harder to feell and hear the details of both, the bass notes doesnt go that much lower as the Fx101 so less rumble down,  the kick of the kickdrum is less hard.  Highs and mids are much better on the Fx101.   Once you hear the FX101, it WILL put a smile on yor face.

 

Dont get me wrong,  the Riptidzs are a good sounding iem for the price, but a step or maybe more down compared to the Fx101.

Which has the best cord among the FX1X, FX101, FX40 and riptidz?

post #18 of 23

in MY personal opinion   Fx1x, maybe its that red color i like tongue_smile.gif

 

   the Riptiz cable is very cheap. almost hate it, and even they sound ok, cant stand that cable, one of the reasons  i dont use them.

Sound just began to go in and out of one ear or the other, now neither work, no visible damages. Could be due to my copious amounts of ear wax but I doubt it, although I've never been lucky with IEMs.

Yep the bass delivery on a pair of JVC FX101 earphones is very good for a budget IEM. But if your after a sensible amount of bass with better mids and highs the JVC FX40 is for you!
