JVC HA-FXZ 100/200 - Page 3

post #31 of 3170

Anyone know release date? Lol. These look SICK. I thought ATs new CKS earphones looked impressive, not so much compared to these. That does look like a whole lot of new tech going on in the earphones. I hope prices will be reasonable. Fingers crossed.

Own JVC LIVEBEAT SYSTEM earphones that combines high-resolution in the treble and realistic bass that the woofer mounted in the inner ear, the idea ever. The secret is in the exquisite combination of stream of a newly developed woofer and tuned twin system unit dedicated to the HA-FXZ series. I did not realize the sound experience to highlight the whole range that has been difficult up to now by a combination of stream woofer to reproduce deep bass and realistic twin system unit that is responsible for the smooth treble.

 

 

 Equipped with a newly developed woofer stream earbuds for the first time in the industry. Applying the method of speaker technology Kelton, covered with a brass base unit woofer unit, forming a sealed acoustic structure, the combined stream elongated duct there.
The sound from the woofer unit, we were able to more than 100Hz are attenuated by passing through the duct in the stream, to extract only pure bass components. Less impact on midrange to reproduce realistic heavy bass.

 

 

The silver cable "for higher resolution across the entire frequency range" and brass case unit in the FXZ200 seems the way to go. The FXZ100 sounds like a step up from the FXT90 but the 200 seems to go the extra mile :)

 

Time to find something more to read on the Kelton speaker tech, lol.

 

BTW, it says the twin system is uniquely tuned for the FXZ so not quite the same as in the FXT90.

Kelton Theory

  • The output of the active speaker combined with the resonance of the outer enclosure's tuned port causes the passive element to move in sympathy with the changes in audio signal. This effectively creates an outer enclosure of varying size, complimentary to the audio signal, restoring some response to low end of the ported enclosure while taking advantage of the smooth response and tight transients of the sealed active speaker. Overall, the system is tuned, without a crossover, to a range, or band, of frequencies, hence the "bandpass subwoofer" description.

Thanks rickdohc, a nice find! Sounds like a tried and tested formula like JVC likes to use. Wood, Brass, now Carbon and Kelton they seem to take legit stuff to incorporate. Cool how they attempted to take this system and miniaturize it. The whole copy and paste...

Kelton Theory

  • The Kelton subwoofer designicon1.png incorporates an active and passive speaker in one ported enclosure. It differs from other passive radiator speakers in that the active speaker is sealed in its own enclosure, rather than sharing an enclosure with the passive speaker. When used as a subwoofer, this design attempts to combine the advantages of several speaker types in a supportive way.

  • A speaker mounted in an airtight enclosure creates a damping effect through changes in air pressure in the sealed space. As the speaker moves forward, low air pressure behind the speaker pulls it back. When the speaker moves back, high air pressure pushes out. This type of design offers fast transient and smooth responses over a wide range of frequencies. It comes at the cost of efficiency, however, as none of the sound energy created by back movement of the speaker is released into the listening area.

  • Ported speakers are inherently louder than sealed designs at the same power level, because the sound energy within the speaker cabinet escapes. The port is tuned to a particular frequency determined by the speaker designericon1.png to support the needs of the system. Below the tuned frequency of the port, response drops off quickly. As consumers generally respond to "loud" being better, most commercial speakers and subwoofers offer a ported design.

  • The output of the active speaker combined with the resonance of the outer enclosure's tuned port causes the passive element to move in sympathy with the changes in audio signal. This effectively creates an outer enclosure of varying size, complimentary to the audio signal, restoring some response to low end of the ported enclosure while taking advantage of the smooth response and tight transients of the sealed active speaker. Overall, the system is tuned, without a crossover, to a range, or band, of frequencies, hence the "bandpass subwoofer" description.

Very ambitious endeavor. Again, to makes this work best and be most cohesive is where the higher version is better with the brass and better cable. Brass is a better enclosure for the woofer. Yamaha was originally going to use the "same brass used in their horns" to make the EPH-100 but they cheaped out with aluminum.

 

Other than being quite large, they look pretty awesome. Looks like an FXZ200 could be on a few Christmas(late Nov. release) lists including mine.

I really have high hopes for these, especially the brass version :) only thing left to do is to wait and save up :)

post #35 of 3170

Instant guilty pleasure. As much as I loved the musicality of the FXT90, I'll have to give these try.

post #36 of 3170

It looks very promising. i'll definitely try to listen to these.

They should be released by the end of November.

I'm going to be watching this with keen interest. Will probably push the button on the back of how much I love the FXD80.

I still feel that my previous FXT90 lacks bass (severely). It's just too treble happy. Harsh, fatiguing treble.

 

Maybe it's time JVC addresses this. BTW, it was said that the drivers in this FXZ200 has been improved. And I still don't understand how 200 will be better than 100 from the pictures.

post #45 of 3170

What is JVC smokin' these dayz, cuz whatever they are i want some of that. Just too crazy the amount of nice sound gears they're cooking up this year. And NOW THIS outta the blue. eek.gif Man at this rate, a full-size 50mm CNT headphone by years end is highly likely!!! deadhorse.gif
