post #3211 of 3223
Hello im interested in these FXZ200, but im just wondering how they work without a poratble amp and I also heard that at high volume without a amp these may distort, is that true? And how is the durabilty of the FXZ200? And whats the difference between the FXZ100 & FXZ200?

I`ve only ever used them from small, unampbed sources:  1st gen iPod Shuffles and a couple of Sansa Clip+.   I`ve never heard `distortion` from them, and I guess sometimes I turn the volume pretty high. 

 

If you go back a few posts I rave about their durability.  These are IEMs that I truly abuse, and have for years. 

 

100 vs 200 is a mystery to me:  color, price and exactly one extra herz of low frequency and one extra gram of weight are the only differences.  The extra gram of weight is interesting, actually.

. Ok 100% getting them, now would you recommend any different ear tips that I should purchase seperately? And how do these perform with EDM?

1] With a portable amp that can deliver more power, they'll sound even better. They'll otherwise sound okay without one on your computer or something. It's not really a biggie. 

 

2] With more power, you might get driver rattle when the driver tries to produce strong lows. This is something I noticed, but only on one particular song. It never did that on any other song, and I don't know if it was just my pair. 

 

3] Generally durable, but you still have to be careful with your stuff. I gave mine to my brother, and he broke the jack part [metal] within days while using it with his iPad.:rolleyes:

 

4] FXZ100 supposedly has a less powerful bass sound. I opted for the 200. I never used the 100.

 

5] JVC's spiral dot tips got rave reviews, but those aren't sold with these phones. You can find them on eBay or Amazon or someone here willing to part with them, maybe. I personally never bothered with them, cause felt they should have included them in the first place if they can make that kind of difference in the sound.

 

These are apparently only reserved for the top tiers: 850 and 1100.:rolleyes:

As I love my FXT90, I'm interested with the FXZ200. It has been my main attention since it first release, but in short amount of time another successors, FXT100/200, came out too! Maybe I'd should rather get both the Z200 and T100 :). Btw, the T100/200 is supplied with the spiral dots tips, so I assume the JVC's start putting the new tips on their new models.

Haha, I'd love to get both too, but my funds simply won't allow that.

Can someone here comment on the differences between the FXZs and the new FXTs?

Apparently the new FXT's have an improved soundstage. Don't know about the bass though.

But it does show JVC is improving. I hope they're working on 200 successor.

It's still obscure but we wouldn't know until we tried it :D Speaking of the bass and soundstage, they're stil unclear - to whom is it compared to? is it compared to its predecessor, FXT90, FXZ's, or in general? That author comparing it to beyerdynamic DT880 (a headphone) so such information cannot be accurate.

That's guys impressions are... interesting. I definitely feel like we take a different approach to describing the sound of an earphone. 

 

Anyone know where I can find some measurement charts on the FXT90/100/200 and the FXZ100/200?

JVC Spiral dots are good and come in 5 sizes, but by far the best tips for me are the Spinfits.  If you go back to my pic above of my 200s, you can see them.  They have a flexible joint that allows the tip to rotate around the axis of the nozzle, conforming to the ear canal without collapsing and blocking the sound waves.  It`s pure genius: the best fit, best seal, best sound.  I don`t use anything else....  

 

If anyone is looking for hard-to-find tips, I can provide Spinfits and Spiraldots, Ortofons, Ostry tips, whatever.  PM me if you`re interested.
