First 5 minutes impression: it's huge. as big as TF10 but better fit than TF10.

Soundstage is big. Bass is nice. Sound signature is warm to dark. but treble is still present.

It reminds me at HD650 :)

100 or 200?

Based from the picture, the ring looks like silver colored, in this case it is fxz100

Build quality is good. Looks more sturdy than TF10. Cable is less than 2mm thick, it has similar material like other JVCs (CK10 and HS500). Microphonics is minimum to none.

Hopefully, that extra woofer isn't just to add bass and instead it increases the soundstage.

Any comparison with teh FXT90?

 

Last time I own the FXT90, I'm okay with most of the things, nothing impressive, just okay. But two things dragged my smile down. 1st, the treble is too grainy for some tracks. Don't like how it just rings instead of smoothly presents the song's treble. 2nd, would hope the mids could be thicker. It's too thin for my taste (vocals).

 

Wondering how that extra driver would improve the sound. More than that, wonder if the twin drivers have been improved.

My understanding is that the FXZs are tuned in a completely different way than the FXT90, so I don't think you'll have anything to worry about if you're basing a purchase on how the FXT90 sounds.

I have to admit autumnholy nailed my biggest concern about these as well.

But in response to his concern. If I am not mistaken then have switched one of the carbon nanotube drivers to just a carbon driver so I would suspect the other driver is likely to be tweaked as well. Also having owned the FXD80 I know that IEM did not have the grain issues the FXT90 had.

But I am waiting for reviews before I make a purchase just to be on the safe side.

Hey dweaver,

 

Just thought I'd throw is out there as your former FXD80s are in my ears right now... not sure if it's burn-in/brain burn-in or what, but these have become my go to IEMs.  I actually prefer them most of the time to the GR07s.  I probably am in the 500 hour range at this point.

 

While I'm excited to see more on the FXZs, they better be damn spectacular with halfway decent ergonomics because they look like a pain in the ear lol.  I tend to go for 4-10 hour listening sessions.  That's my only concern.

I actually found the FXT90 to be comfortable due to the offset design so aside from looking like I have bolts in my head I do suspect these will be comfortable.

I would be lying if I said I haven't almost bought the 100 model a couple of time LOL. I am actually wavering between getting these or getting the Tiesto K167. My current favourite headphone/IEM is the K550 though which is on the bright side so I am a bit concerned these may not be bright enough for me. The K167 from reading on the other sounds like it will offer more bass than the K550 while maintaining the K550 midrange and treble. BUT both AKG's are not on the discreet side for size LOL. Hmmm Frankenstein bolts or Princess Leia buns?... Decisions decisions smily_headphones1.gif

I have the 70's (not 80's), but there is something damned addictive about them! So, I'm not surprised that you are enjoying your 80's.

A little update. Tenso got my earphones. I just payed $24 for shipping and handling via EMS. I should have my earphones. Next week? I am surprised at the efficiency of it. It doesn't cost much at all for shipping and handling from Tenso.

I will only go for the FXZ100 now (expecting the V6 any day now and I'm really enjoying the TDK IE800 so much that I will probably buy the BA200). I'm trying to say money for the GR08, which can come out anytime now. If Dsnuts really praises the FXZ200 over the Z100, I will get the Z200 somewhere down the line. Dsnuts should have his new JVCs by early or mid next week I'm betting.

If its in the budget I recommend going for the FXZ200, I remember it having better details than its sibling and noticeably better overall. I only spent less than 5 minutes with both of them during the big headphone show here in October but I remember enjoying the warm sound of the FXZ200 quite a bit.

 

The reason why the FXZ200 sounds noticeably better is because of the housing material and cabling, it is made with a more rigid metal and the cables on the FXZ200 are made of oxygen free Silver which I felt brought out greater resolution.

 

EDIT: Correction it seems that the cables are made of oxygen free copper that are silver plated.

aaaah, so I'll still have to go for the fxz200? damn, that sucks :( It will be my ultimte earphone until something happens to it, meaning that I won't buy anything until I have it. But still, I'd like it to be a little cheaper :D

Uhh....UHHHHHH....:S well that ruined my idea of a last headphone! Now I want to get the fxz200 during my birthday. That should be the least earphone. THanks for letting us know.

ME TOO :D I don't know when they will ship it, but I sure hope they will do it now. If not, I know I'll get it similar to your time.

Holy - a CKS1000? I'm actually tempted.

 

I can't afford to get any more stuff right now, but man these early impressions are interesting...
