- If something about the FXZ200/100 bothers you, it doesn't these are bad earphones. It could simply mean these are not your preferred sound signature. I had to learn that about me and the TF10 and DBA02. 

 

Yep, totally agree with this.

 

Even when something is hyped up as big as this, people should still approach with caution and read closely about the sound signature that others have described, then decide if you want to buy or not.

Agreed, except for when it comes to the S500 - you are not allowed not to love it. Having said that, there currently is a dissenter in the S500 ranks. But we can't have that and we're working on him. We'll bring him around I'm sure lol wink.gif

Wait 3 days old only= 72 hrs.  124 hrs would mean the IEM is 5 days old...confused_face_2.gif Am I missing something here?

....was wondering the same thing myself.

Maybe he burned them at 1.722x the "normal" volume thus hastening the burn process ! wink_face.gif

The blue and red L and R markers end up facing outwards (and upside down).

Thank you for the information. That's seem better than changing the channel side.

I've been up all night comparing the 100 to the 200. These two are interesting because on the surface it seems like the sound isn't any different from the other one. Yet when you really listen there are clear differences. I don't know if I would call it a bigger soundstage, but the 100 actually puts the listener farther away from the stage. And vocals seem more forward in the 100, but this might be because the mids are more balanced. That powerful bass is there, but it blends in better with the mids with the 200, as compared with a better blend of the mids and treble with the 100. 

 

The 200 is raw power! The kick drum and bass sound big and deep. Vocals are forward, but must bow a tiny bit to the bass and drums. And what's interesting, when I use a copper cable on my custom V6 the soundstage is massively wide. when I use my silver cable, however, the soundstage is not as wide, but those details are even more focused and pristine. Well, the same can be said about the copper wire in the 100 vs. the silver on the 200 (what you lose in soundstage you pic up in detail.

 

Of course, as stated before, the more balanced sound is in the 100. Which one I do I love better? Tough, because like the TDK BA200 vs. IE800, I hear qualities in both that the other one seems to miss. I have my 100s up  for sale (but if it's not bought I'm cool), so I think it is safe to assume I prefer the 200, but I'm loving the more balanced sound of the 100 too. It's really tough, as I will miss the 100, but I think the 200 is my favorite. But one can't really say one is better than the other one because both have something unique from the other one. I do think the treble is a bit more forward in the 100. If I don't sell the 100, then I'll just see it as my great 200 backup plan. (typing sleepy, so forgive me)

Oh, I've settled on the UE900 silicon tips as my favorite on both the 100 and 200.

post #2124 of 3190

Speaking of tips. Someone mentioned a place to get custom molded tips for universal IEMs?

Yes I was going to pull the trigger on the 200 too, but then again I decided to have one more read through of everyone's impressions, and decided not to get the 200 simply because I love the 100 because of its balanced sound (with a fully sick subwoofer), and I have concluded based on the reading, that 200's main signature is more powerful bass and slightly laid back treble - rather than spending the $200 on something that I might not like/enjoy, I decided to spend that $200 from Amazon.jp on TDK IE800 and MA600 instead etysmile.gif

We can't be having that!

Let's all gang up on him, tie him up and make him listen non stop to the s500 for a whole month. Or at least until he loves the sound.

We'll make him listen for a year if that's what it takes!
