208 days? LOL. If that's the case then I will most likely sell them before that :)

Hilarious. No one has even owned these for that long tongue_smile.gif

Well after using the FXZ100 for a month I am afraid I am just to much of a mid/treble oriented listener so I have put these up for sale in the FS section. A good deal plus pre-burned in for anyone interested. I do think these are the best JVC IEM I have owned or heard though, just not my cup of tea.

Between the two, they can't more different mate, I would probably suggest buy both to complement each other, rather than one or the other...wink_face.gif

I'm a Denon 7000 owner as well, and I would agree that there is a certain kindred spirit between the 7ks and these JVCs.  I bought the Denons because they had what I called 'speaker bass'.  While i respect the 'transparent sound' signature of stats and things like 800s and 701s, i want a bit more meat on the bones.  The JVCs do that, but also have very good resolution, and the resolution and dynamics are coherent top to bottom.

 

None of them are perfect, and not everybody will love them - as it should be.  For me, and people who love acoustic music along with other genres, and "listen from the bottom up", should love these.

 

They also scale well, use reference-level gear with them, and prepare to be amazed!

FXZ100 bass is getting better and better, its getting tighter and more controlled while maintaining almost the same depth and impact...

Hey guys,

 

I'm on a fence here.

 

I'm looking to upgrade from my Atrios from years ago and can't figure out what IEM to go with. My choices are down to TDK IE800, BA200, and JVC FXZ100/200.

 

What would be the best out of these three for ALL genres? I'm looking for something that is detailed and has a great soundstage and imaging. Has anyone listened to all four of these by any chance?

I have not heard all 4 but have the IE800 and FXZ100 at the moment.

The IE800 is more spacious sounding than the FXZ100 and is very mid centric sounding.

The FXZ100 while not massive in sound stage is actually better than average and has good imaging and decent instrument separation. Coming from the Atrio I think you would appreciate the bass of the FXZ100 more than the IE800. I think the FXZ100 is better balanced than the IE800.

From reading the other TDK will have the most detail and will likely be the most balanced IEM but at the cost of bass quantity.

From reading the FXZ200 will give you the best bass head experience while still sounding good in the mids and treble.

Fyi, sofastreamer led me to this Focus Driving 14 track (download), and it has some great bass in it. I imagine it will sound pretty good with the 'ol 100's or 200's as well.

It looks like being the same for me with the 200s. In the end, the XBA-3s have nailed it for me most as they seem to have better refinement through the mids and treble. 

 

I tried the other JVCs in store the other day. I forgot the model number but they are frequently recommended here. Those had the same issue I've had with most IEMs: screeching treble and dead percussion.

I also have IE800 and FXZ100 and I agreed with dweaver - though IMHO IE800 is mid-centric, and FXZ100 is more of a balanced sound

 

IE800 mids are a lot more detailed.

I'm like Dweaver regarding mid/treble and I also own and loved my XBA-3 but the FXZ-100 are growing on me. The mid's could gain some presence but the bass qualities are soooooo addictive. I'm far from a bass head, I wouldn't want more quantity but all that detail in the low end just make you want to move with the music. Just make that musical experience more fun. I have yet to change the default medium tip. I'll trying other tips this week at work.
