JVC HA-FX40 | Believe the hype! - Page 2

post #16 of 175

Just ordered these along with a pair of SoundMagic E10's, one will be for my mom and the other for my dad. I'm thinking these for my dad. Plus side to this is I can try both of these IEMs! lol

 

What do you mean by an aggressive burn in?

Pros

Bass is powerful

high clarity

cheap

 

Cons

the memory foam buds get a little warm after prolong use

the connector straight not r shaped

 

Overall very pleased with purchase

Memory foam buds?

 

Do you mean you got memory foam eartips. I didnt get any with mine. Just normal silicone tips.

 

I use these while sleeping. Great deep base and comfort!

I decided to purchase one of these, and after a good 100 hours of burn-in I'll give these a test to see if they can compete against the MH1Cs (and the Philips SHE3580 and Monoprice 8320 if I can get my hands on those too).

 

EDIT: I gave these no more than 15 minutes of higher-than-average-listening level of music. Already in that time I felt that they sound more full. They sound less sibilant than the B2s.

I decided against these but after Xmas I just might order these for myself since they are cheap, 500hrs to burn in though is kinda discouraging

I just ordered a pair. Was disappointed with the SONY MH1, will see how this one turn out.
Oh and burn in is all in your head.

Sycho,

   How did they compare to the MH1C? I have the 8320 and the Phillips SHE 3590 (not the 80).

post #23 of 175

ordered a pair last night.

stay tuned for review and compares.

post #24 of 175

Me too. Amazon had them on Prime for $15.91....but after I ordered i noticed it said "Ships in 2-6 weeks"  DOH!!confused_face.gif

If anyone here has the sony mh1cs that wants to trade for the FX40s i have 2 pairs of pretty new ones in sliver and black. Send me a PM if interested and lives within the states.

MH1c destroys the HA-FX40s in every way. I have them burned in for 160 hours though. The FX40s are still sibilant, and they don't sound as full as the MH1c. They sound really bright, and have weak mids. The MH1c has really good bass response for my needs with a half-decent source, good instrument separation at the level of the Brainwavz B2, and have decent highs.

I beg to differ. Apart from sound signature differences, the only thing that the MH1C has over the FX40 is maybe some refinement in the treble.

Very true. Got to love MEElec.

 

I've got several of those zippered pouches from 8 or 9 MEE phones I've bought over the years.

 

That being said, I am apparently on a JVC kick right now. I have purchased HA-S400's, HA-FXZ200's and just bought a set of these. Maybe these can be my sleeping buds. They look low profile enough. I have been using my GR07, but I really hate doing that because of the stress they are under with them hooked into my ears while sleeping. I've been searching for a good sounding cheap set I can replace them with.

Yowza, these are BRIGHT.  This is beyond sibilance, frankly things don't sound that distorted, it just sounds like everything above 5kHz is amplified immensely!

 

Great clarity, but damn...

 

So, let's see if burn-in is a myth.  Will update.

Let me know how burn in goes. Mine shipped today. Have heard they need TONS of burn in.
