had PFE232 and FX700. PFE232 is probably more V shaped and has less bass/rumble. PFE232 has very good isolation

I am not overly impressed. I'm not sure if JVC have heard of instrument separation before but I am either very spoilt with my Rhapsodio IEM's and offerings like R-50, Brainwavs B2 or there isn't any real instrument separation I can hear., or much soundstage either.. The bass however is 'nice', a little boomy though acceptable. I just find the mids lacking any real detail and everything sounds smeared, there's no oomph or bite to the mid range and it's over shadowed by the forward low end.

I am sorry, but separation and detail is very important to me, part of upgrading to higher IEM's is to stop everything feeling congested, the ability to pick out any instrument separately during busy tracks, I'm just not hearing any and need it there to continue taking in the earphone. I don't think I'll spend much more time with them. There's just no real detail guys and as I said pages back they sound 'to me' like a really safe mainstream signature with limitations. I was expecting more from JVC in this price range.

Even the member I loaned these from enjoys them, I'm just not able to accept them.

PS: I didn't come in here to start a war or make fans feel bad, I needed to say what I honestly felt. smily_headphones1.gif

How many hours have they done?

I do not know, but no amount is going to correct them to the point I would be happy.

Enjoy your JVC FXZ100 guys.

You have just confirmed my fears! Coming from several JVC in ears, I tend to find the upper mids and treble a bit harsh or unrefined on all of them.

I have read on this thread that they indeed do sound different than the fxt90, but now I have my doubts. I still wanna get the fxz200, but its just so hot and cold on this thread. Some say its a neutral-ish sound, others say bass monster, and others say its not impressive at all....

I would be happy if it just didn't have the same upper mids/treble as the fxt90.

You're better off going for the fx850.

Hi, Ive just finished reading this thread (whew!) and it seems like the fxz200s have a sound sig I'll like. So will the fx 850s but since I'll be using iems at work, sound leakage is important to me as I'll be listening at fairly high volumes through my E18. The 850s seem like they'll suffer a little with leakage due to vents.

So my question is, given a good seal with the 200s, what is the sound leakage like?
I'll also mention that I like to wear ear down as Ill be taking them out and putting them back in again to talk to ppl frequently, so I don't like taking time to put them into my ear when wearing over ear.
Thanks

You should ask dsnuts directly. He has used both of these iems; I've used the 200s. 

 

I've since bought a Sony HBA-H3, which is better (By leaps and bounds). I wear those over-ear, and sound leakage is not something I worry about. 

 

I can only advise you to go get the 850s (Which some say is even better than the H3). The 200s don't have a wide soundscape or any remarkable positioning.

sound leakage is not a issue for me. But I listen at around 40-50dB at quiet environments. You can start hearing sounds when you crank the volume to like around 75% on an ipod

Just sharing my experience.

After not using the fxz200 for weeks, ive decided to take it out and split my CLAS -db & RxMk3B+.and use the rx with my ak120 as source, so its ak120-> Rx -> fxz200.

Everything seems better. Details, separation, treble, bass quality. I still like how its easy to listen to and just chillin'.

I know i'm double amping, but to each his own. I like how this combo sounds. I guess i'm rediscovering someting new that i haven't heard before.

The only comparison iem i have are the re400 and ie800. This one is definitely warmer than those. I do tend to prefer these depending on mood. At least this delayed my upgraditis as ive been thinking of getting the re600 or a ciem w/c i havent identified yet.

Is there an important difference between FXZ 100 and FXZ 200? For some reason, only the 100's are available where I live. :confused_face:

Users who had both said there's not as much difference. The bass on the 200s are slightly more extended and more in quantity. You can try buying on amazon.jp and forward it to where ever you live with tenso

Thank you for the reply Mini0510. :normal_smile :

It seems absurd that the company make's two different models in the same price while there's a difference in their performance. :confused_face:
