JVC HA-FXZ 100/200 - Page 200

post #2986 of 3189

Well, I tuned the ZO2 to "correct" this problem. The so-called "personal subwoofer" does ironically, put that "Kelton subwoofer" to use without destroying the brilliant vocals. The sound is just complete. The crazy thing is that the ZO2 on barely a few steps in it's "green" setting, is still pushing the bass pretty hard. Any higher and it distorts the sound, as the C5 does.

 

It has this illusion of sounding "less clear" now that the bass is more prominent, but it's just that: the added bass can be distracting from the vocals if you enjoy beats.

Hey, my friend's FXZ200s are louder on the right side all of the sudden. Any ideas?

Wait, it looks like there's more gunk on the grill on the one side. Could that be the issue? If so, how would he go about cleaning it?

If he's using an iOS device, he might be able to adjust the volume towards the left a little in the Accessibility settings.

I'm out of ideas otherwise. I know the voices sometimes do sound like they're coming from the right, but I've never heard of that. I guess you can't just send it back either.

^ ehhh it's always best to clean the iem after each listening session. Takes only like couple of secs to wipe off.

 

To clean maybe wet a q-tip than dry to pretty well, and use that to clean it??? That's what i do anyways, just make sure you don't get the fabric mesh wet, etc since it is glued on.

So he cleaned them and they're still having that issue. Any idea why it would be louder on one side?

Bad news... probably the cable's gone bad.

I really hope that's not the case. His FXD80s had a cable problem too.

It's almost always the left channel that goes first, in my experience. Probably the way the wires are arranged inside the cable? That's why I never buy headphones/earphones that don't have replaceable cables anymore, unless they're cheap throwaways.

So a bad cable could cause a quieter volume on one side? I've had sound go out, but I've never heard it do this. Since they are $200 IEMs, replacing the cable would definitely be worth it.

Yeah I've had it happen to me a few times. Sometimes the left channel goes completely dead, but sometimes it's just quieter. I guess most of the wires are broken but a few strands are left, causing high electrical resistance. Just a guess; I'm not a technical expert by any means. But it happened to my first pair of vPulse when I clamped the cable too hard and I had to get a warranty replacement.

Is there any chance of him getting a replacement? Like through the warranty or anything?

post #2998 of 3189

The warranty on these is Japan only. 

post #2999 of 3189
Yeah that's the risk you take with ordering from Japan. Find someone really good with soldering tiny things and ask them to mod it with a detachable cable.

Make friends with someone who goes regularly to Japan and they could send it in for warranty.
