JVC HA-FXZ 100/200 - Page 202

post #3016 of 3171

The one thing that bothers me about the stock tips is that they leave the nozzle and its flimsy filter so exposed.

Right now I'm using my Macbook Pro, and I have to say. These sound.. Pretty how you'd imagine they're supposed to sound after reading impressions here. This is the point where I can genuinely echo Dsnuts' remarks about this sounding like a "subwoofer". I didn't notice the difference in loudness between my mac and my iPhone 5, until I was listening to this Jay-Z song and remember it "thumping" and "rumbling" louder. It drives almost to the point of speaker rattle. 

 

But then again, that's what sound itself is: vibrations. It only makes sense that lower frequencies cause the thing to rattle like a subwoofer.

 

I can't ask for anymore.

Oh yes, very different experience than any other IEMs that I own, dynamic and BAs. In term of bass, FXZ100 is at another different level. biggrin.gif

Too nice. My iPhone 5, C5 amp, and ZO2 can't match the macbook in clarity and bass. The sound just has this kind of "perfectness" to it.

Word. I would really like to try it out with a similar setup. Done a bunch of looking around for a dac/amp but realized I'm broke. Guess I'll have to wait around and see what I can salvage from what's left over after paying the bills.

When you do get the power, driver rattle could become a problem though. This is one of those things you can only hope they solve in the next generation. Or maybe some other product has solved it.

Oh...is the rattle really that bad? Guess I'lll have to see for myself at a store that allows testing.

It's something people will notice for sure when the headphones need to rumble and everything is quiet, though. They will also distort if the bass "thump" is too loud.

 

The higher frequency sound can also get a little distorted. If anyone else wants to confirm, they can try stomaching these.

 

[Pay attention to the piano]

[Rumble]

 

But again, you won't hear this on your phone, and not every song sounds this way anyway. Not even my C5 could get them to sound this way. Confessions Pt.II don't distort or cause it to rattle. Same goes for One of those nights. This is from my laptop. The tricky thing about putting a bunch of speakers together is that the sound will distort at higher levels. You'd have to lower the volume by a point or three, but the music is still loud enough to be enjoyable. My laptop could be pushing them a little too loud.

I hear a bit of rattle, but I have to really pay attention to pick that up. This bass is cleaner than the stuff in most of my songs...

post #3027 of 3171

None of those songs from your link distort the sound on my FXZ100, I even maxed out the volume on my laptop (both the youtube volume and laptop volume) and still no distortion. If you get a distortion then you either listening too loud or your FXZ is broken.

I am loving the Nomak song, when maxed, you can really feel the solid bass punch and the song is calming (duh meditation song) haha.

I already discussed that as a possibility. Listening with the laptop and the smartphone aren't the same; the phone never causes rattle or distortion at the highest volumes. The laptop on the other hand does that depending on the song, and lowering the volume slightly helps.

Are you EQ'ing when playing from your laptop? I have never gotten my 200's to distort in bass due to high volume!
