The Senn gives me a full robust - yet detailed - sound. All of these tips were  tested on the 200, not the 100 (although I imagine the same difference, but maybe the MEEL sound better on the 100). I really love the 100s, but it will be awhile before I listen to them again (it's packed away). My time will be split between the 200, V6 right now. Then the BA200, IE800 (TDK), and TDK MA600 (the IEM that Carrowong stated was second best he heard after the FXZ200 at the electronics show in Japan) will get time.

 

Yo brother I am in downtown Chicago on the 22nd to the 31st. Head-fi meet and greet? Also if you have any spare tips you wanna get rid of, can i buy them from you?

anyone know where I can get a multitude of tips at reasonable cost?

 

Right here at Meelectronics eBay store:

Do the FXZ200 have enough mid bass to give a good punchy bass experience?

 

Keeping the bass out of the mids region without making the mid bass region weak is the real challenge here.  Getting the bass out of the way by leaving a great deep bass and having a weak mid bass is not as good an achievement as having both deep and mid bass in appropriate quantities and avoiding mudiness at the same time.

You are a basshead of the xtreme kind.  Knowing that, I would like to know how your bass experience with the FXZ200 compares to your bass experience with the ATH-CKS77.

Yes, even compared to the T1's. The T1's are great and give a wider soundstage and give no listener fatugue but are no match for the 200's for detail and low bass.

You could try this 10-pack of tips from MEElectronics. It has three pairs of Sennheiser-like double flange tips (ericp10's favorite), the long single flange tips (eke2k6's favorite so far), and various other tips that might suit you best. It doesn't have cute's current favorite (the 'Balanced' double flange ones), but it has a pair of standard biflanges that look the same shape, just made differently. Shipping to Canada may be relatively expensive, however. It seems that original Sony hybrids are a safe choice as well, and you can find those relatively cheap on eBay.

 

P.S. This 10-pack doesn't show up on their website using the search or manually going through their list. Someone had linked to it in another thread.

 

P.P.S. I've read before that if you contact MEElectronics, they can do a custom order of eartips where you decide exactly which types and how many of each type you want. I don't know if they still do that however.

Well. I just tried them double flange short tips Meelecs. Opens up the highs and mids more. I think I like it.

Hmm. I'll see if we can meet, jnsaudiophile. fzman is here too, so maybe we could do a small meet and greet. I don't have any spare tips I can thing of at the moment (unless the tips are small ones that I can't use). I'll check. If so, you can have those. Oh, I have fellow Canuck head-fier coming down from Canada to the Chi around that time on business. I'm suppose to meet him too (he's bringing me an audiophile goodie). So maybe we can figure it out.

Strange... The Senns didn't work for me. I prefer the fischer audio's for micro-detail. What I notice is that the Senns increase soundstage by quite a large margin.

These FXZ 200's are on my list for my upgrade in sound but what's putting me off is that to get the best out of them, they need a lot of power to drive them. I don't have a DAC/AMP. If I had to buy one, I would prefer it to be portable and relatively cheap redface.gif

Again, you don't need a DAC/AMP to drive them. Whoever keeps typing that is not being honest, or you guys aren't reading what's actually being reported about the FXZ200 here.
