Coolios, you know what they say, words are cheap, a picture is worth a thousand words, etc, etc.

Ya I am thinking they retuned the XBA-30 and XBA-40.  A bit more toward the Sony sound meaning. Less highs more forward mids. Not too many guys own both the XBA-3 and a XBA-30 to compare if anybody.  but it will be interesting to know if there are some changes.. Would be cool for people that rub elbows with Sony folk asked to give all of us headfiers an answer.. That would be cool..

 

I do have the XBA-30 on my want list. I am gonna wait for the cost to come down a bit before I get one. The funny thing is the XBA-40 cost something like $200 on amazon japan but the XBA-30 cost around $184ish.

I have both the xba-3 and xba-4. Wouldn't mind trying  and comparing the two models If I had some extra funds but thanks to X-mas, I don't. Those prices direct from Amazon Japan are crazy low compared to US ebay.

Yes, and Yes. I still love my XBA-3s but the FXZ100 is one over them. The FXZ200s is my favorite. 

 

 

Damn it.

Well seems my iem's are 'on hold' pending payment.

 

Im really hoping that's their automated system screwing up, as i did pay up on saturday.

 

Edit - Yay!!! it's on vehicle for delivery!!!!

 

Subs ahoy matey!!

 

I think the expression - like a kid at christmas is rather apt. ksc75smile.gif

Has driver flex been mentioned? I'm getting it on the right side only
post #1374 of 3189

finally got my fxz200 in.

 

i was expecting more sub bass/mid bass. the cks77 has more or each i believe, but still braining so time will tell.

 

Sound stage is bigger than eh 100 though. they are already very imersive out of the box. if bass quantity doesn't pick up which id doint think it will, i will have to pull out my zo2.

 

Also these are much harder to drve than any of my other iems.    

post #1375 of 3189

Good to know you've got them, im still waiting on mine.

 

What source you using?

 

Try playing with the tips, it can really change the sound with some iem's

post #1376 of 3189

Huxley when i got my box it looked like it had been opened. think it might have been customs.

 

For my quick test i just used my S2 phone which is know is crap source. for proper listening i will be using a denon avr 1911.

 

the medium tips seemed the best for me. will re check this post burn.  

 

burning in now with drum and bass and a zo2 connected.

 

hang in there bro  you have your 200s soon! it crazy that our American cousin get stuff from Japan so much quicker than us and with out taxes.

Even the denon will be a poor source, i know i have an avr 1802 here.

But poor how they left it tardy, sound like some kid at customs got excited when he saw them, i know i would.

 

I have a fair few decent sources i can play with, it'll probably pair with my fuze/p4 warbler very well, but i also have a rocoo and c3 to play with

 

My smsl fort dac will probably be best id imagine, anyway keep playing, im getting terribly impatient, tracking says it's on the van so i know they're coming.

Ok got my 200's, and with stock mediums i get a perfect seal.

 

First things, these seem picky about their source, with my galaxy nexus they're very good, they especially love my colourfly c3.

 

I'll play with the rocoo, as im really digging the c3 atm, powers them quite well i might add.

 

But with my fuze/p4 it just isn't happening. They sound good but there's no cohesion, the music seems out of tune no matter how much i played with the eq.

 

They just don't get along.

 

But so far im liking what i hear, the bass is a bit woolen at times, and im picking up what feels like a treble spike, might be around 13khz or so?

 

But like all jvc's i'll give them a good hammering, that'll sort them out.

Fancy putting some nice pictures up to tide me over until mine arrive?

Certainly will do, bit hectic in the household atm, but soon as it settles down i'll fire some up.

 

you'll really like these ryan, they seem to be pretty decent all rounders as well.

 

I know my short review seems harsh, but trust me im picky so will pick out what faults i can.

 

They are a cracking iem for sure.

 

Oh gawd these are good for rock, now that does surprise me.

 

But for dance/trance with all that bass and wide stage, yup love that too.
