Anyway, I have a question for any 200 owners, and maybe 100 owners if you can confirm that the cable is the same as the 200:  Has anyone reterminated the 200 with a balanced plug? I`m thinking about doing just that, for my AK120ii.  I just need to know if the cable is 4-wire, or do they share the ground ?

 

Thanks in advance, and sorry if this has been discussed somewhere previously . .  .

 


It's much easier to make a 4 wire cable than some dodgy join at the Y split design, it's not even a thick cable so they could save money by using less - I would bet my house it's a 4 wire. 

 

If it isn't you just have to put a shiny new jack plug on instead, will be cheaper than the balanced connector which you wont be needing...

Thanks.  I am going to go for it.  I found some of the 2.5mm plugs in a diy shop . .    

 

How do you like your fx850?  I find it extremely good, but I still value the isolation of the fxz200 . .  .

so the isolation is worse then fxz200?

The fx850 has some kind of vent, a semi-open design.  It`s not bad, but the fxz200 is better.   

 

The fx850 sound is truly amazing, however.

I'm eagerly awaiting for an update. I was thinking about this just the other day.

Please keep us posted. Pics would be awesome too!

 Will do.  

 

On a separate topic, yesterday I noticed one of the filters in my 200s was deformed.  In trying to re-form it with tweezers, I totally mangled it and so just pulled it out completely.  Those things are really dense and stiff; it`s hard to imagine them not impacting SQ.  So I pulled other one out too.  

 

I think I am hearing more details, especially in the high end.  Of course, this could be placebo. 

 

Has this been discussed before, or has anyone else removed their filters?

Heads up: An HA-FXZ1100 is launching in December.

No sign of another triple-driver iem, though they have a FXT90 successor.

It's overall interesting to see the differences between the Japanese companies, namely Sony, Audio Technica, and JVC. The differences between iem technology (Dyanamic wood driver vs BA/ Dynamic Hybrid) etc.

The fx850 are sublime out of my Tera Player, the fxz200 are not unlistenable but not great.  On the other hand out of my phone the fx850 are boomy and unpleasant while the fxz200 manage to have more bass yet sound clearer, so this is a great combo when pocket space is tight.

 

Isolation wise I find them about the same using large professor beats ear sweets (like complys but cheaper - stock tips aren't big enough) as both housings are too large for a deep insertion so both suffer from wind noise.  Between these two and my heir tzars (better isolation due to sealed BAs and low profile so no wind noise) I'm content and won't be buying an IEM until one of them dies.
