JVC HA-FXZ 100/200 - Page 120

post #1786 of 3203

Interesting. And this semi-loose seal revelation reminds me of the FX-700, which I felt always sounded it's best with a loose seal. It was way too boomy with a good seal.

Any thoughts on the sound of cymbals sounding plasticky compared to the GR07 like what jnsaudiophile hears?

So what do you know?!! I ordered my FXZ200 late on Friday (almost Saturday), and here it is sitting on my desk at 2:30 p.m. on a Wednesday! I think I'm really loving the Japan and its people even more so now! Thoughts and impressions to come soon.

I don't hear a plasticky quality to cymbals but the GR07 renders cymbals with more precision and articulation.

Alright I'll wait for your impressions and then decide. No rushing please!

I will not be one to burn-in for several hours and then listen. It will be a gradual process as I did with the FX100. Now, let me say this right off the back from a very quick preliminary listen: The FXZ200 overall sound is fuller than the FXZ100, but the I'm not necessarily hearing more bass (or sub-bass) as I was expecting to hear. So that's interesting. The FXZ100's sound has settled in significantly with bass as needed, but I was really expecting more of an increase in bass with the 200 and don't hear it. Now, the stock tips didn't work best for me with the 100 and I expect it's the same with the 200, so I need to put my Senn double-flange on the 200 (my preferred tips) to see what it does. 

As for plasticky cymbals, I don't know what that poster was talking about, but it's not what I'm hearing. I can't say anymore as I only had the 200 in my ears for about four minutes. So I'm not sure yet if the 200 and 100 both have that balanced sound, and how much different both are from each other.

Wow that is fast. Takes one day from Amazon.jp to arrive at Tenso then only another 2 days to arrive in Chicago?

Well three days to arrive in Chicago. The whole process takes about four and half to five days. I would think it lands in L.A. first, but tracking always show the flight from Japan to Chicago, so Chi-town must be one of the international hubs for the entire country. Yes, it's quite fast!

Oh, woops I wasn't counting Sunday as I'm used to American standards for post office working days. I suppose it's different in Japan. Did it actually ship from Tenso on Sunday?

With most shipping services, things still move around on weekends.  Their job is to get it to you the quickest possible, so they do truck and ship over weekends.  They just don't deliver.

@ericp I would say at least 50 hours until they start to show what they sound like.  The FXZ200 sounds very similar to the FXZ100 on open box. It is when they get the burn in they start to separate themselves. Look forward to your take on them.

Hi ericp10......I'm really trying to like the 200's.  I am wearing them over ear, and one of the things I don't like is that they don't stay where I put them in my ears.  I have been using Meelec DF and TF tips, and could like either one if they would stay put.  If I push them in far enough to stay put, I get too much bass, which covers up the mids and highs.  The black Meelec DF tips seem to stay put a little better.  I have been trying (today) the Sennheiser DF, and they stay put really well, but I only have them in large......what size are you using?  Mids and highs are good to go the these, but I get more bass that with the Meelec tips.  As burn in progress goes on they are getting better on the low end, nice tight sub bass/bass, but I would like a little less mid bass to bring the vocals a little more forward....and I can do that with a couple db cut and 125hz.  Problem for me right now, I listen to the 200's and then go back to my S500's, and the S500's just blow my mind with more open, airy big sound.  They both have the same sound sig, which is as it should be, but the 500's on a grander scale!  I know you are going to love the 200's!

Yeah, I realize that. I've never counted Sunday as a day when determining USPS estimated delivery times as I've never received a package via USPS Priority Mail (2-3 days) on Monday that was shipped out on Saturday, but plenty of things have arrived on Wednesday when shipped out on Monday. Maybe I just have bad luck.

You could use a secure tip and still have the effect of a loose fit by putting the right size hole in the tip shaft just above the nozzle. For those that love them otherwise, it may be worth a go. Hot pin etc would probably work well.

Okay, fellas. Thanks I'll let you know as the burn in progresses.
