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.
