uh, there's not distortion. I'm not sure what driver rattle is.

Driver rattle is when the bass is so strong, it causes the speakers to rattle inside of the housing; we had a small discussion about this a page or two back. Basically, I discovered that paying the JVCs on my macbook, makes them rattle, because it's getting more power, so everything is louder. Whether it's a "thump" or a rumble, they'll rattle. It's not an issue with the songs themselves, because this doesn't happen on my phone, and those songs are paid-for 256kbps files. I'm a little wary that other iems might suffer from this, which is I why I asked about it.

I don't know. I don't listen to it that loud. I listen at 50-60% volume.

If you are only getting that on high volume, you are probably pushing the drivers to its limit. If that's on normal volume, then you have a default pair.

What song is this? Just give me a link or something I'll listen to it

 

I'll test ASG-2 and FXZ200

Yeah, that could be it. It's louder on the macbook than on my iPhone. 

 

The XX - Reunion     

The xx - Angels     

 

I'm hearing that the ASG-2 is actually pretty competitive with stuff way outside it's price tag. So I want to know how it sounds compared to the JVCs from someone who actually has both. To me, the JVCs for the most part give the listener the impression that they are listening to a studio recording; like you become the microphone the singer is talking to. It was pretty amazing the first time around. 

 

Is the  ASG a big improvement?

I would say so.

define big improvement. Isolation? Sure, that's a big improvement.

As far as how it sounds to you. Is it "more of the same" in comparison with the JVCs, or would you consider it a step forward?

depends if you EQ or not and your source. High quality audio and good source, sure.

If you can EQ on a portable player, probably not.

Like to check, did anyone here reshell their FXZ200? I was at a shop just now and they told me that Unique Melody will be able to reshell the FXZ200 for me. I'm apprehensive about doing it cos it's a dynamic driver earphones and i'm not sure how the sound signature will change...

I have been thinking of reshelling them but then again the sound might be radically different and incoherent since the Kelton implementation is very different.

Yea you're absolutely right. With dynamic drivers, placement is extremely important and it can affect the sound signature tremendously. 

 

It'll cost me about $250 to reshell and with that money, I can get a FIIO X3 or a JVC SZ2000, which to me provides way more value for my money than a reshell that might ruin my FXZ200.

 

However, I hate the way the FXZ200 sticks out of my ears.....

I recently got the JVC HA-FXZ200 and on first listen I didn't really care for the sound that much.  Then I also received the FiiO E12 Mount Blanc and now the JVCs came to life.  They have really impressive tight bass with just the right amount of high end for me.  This combo really jells together for me Ipod Classic -> Jumbo Copper -> FiiO E12 -> JVC HA-FXZ200.  It's quite impressive playing the new Five Finger Death Punch album "The Wrong Side of Heaven..."

I still love the sound of these FXZ200s but it can be too bit powerful which causes fatigue for prolong listening sessions. I might be listening to them too loud though since they do need a good amount of juice in order to sound proper.  Happy and safe listening meng!!! beerchug.gif

Same here sf, I listen to them a fair bit. Powerful and huge sound.
