JVC HA-FXZ 100/200 - Page 216

post #3226 of 3237
After a couple months with the JVC HA-FXZ200, I don't understand why these aren't some of the most sought-after IEMs out there. They are so silky and pleasurable to listen to. I can only assume it has to do with the inadequate stock tips (spiral dot didn't exist yet) and actual need for burn in, which I usually think is a load of hogwash.

Listen to ZES "Do it Again" or another liquid bass type electronic track and you will fall in love. I'm buying a second set in case these ever fail on me.

I hope JVC makes a successor. I'd love to see another Triple Driver earphone using a Kelton-method subwoofer unit (maybe even bigger than this one) paired with dual BA drivers for mids and highs.

Everything interesting they've made since has been dual driver without the subwoofer unit, wood with one driver, or lower quality basshead units. To abandon the amazing tech in the FXZ IEMs and SZ headphones because of failed marketing is simply tragic.

I should have a review up here on Head-Fi and over at Basshead.Club later in the week.

I still really want a pair of these. I've like all of the cheap JVC earphones I've tried so the FX and FXZ series are highly attractive to me. The only thing that's holding me back are the prices. The FXZ200 is currently $140 on Amazon right now. I still want to get my first pair of headphones before getting another IEM. Maybe one day...

I paid almost $100 more than their current price when these were first out.
I listen to them a lot and still luv 'em.
Makes $140 seem like a bargain.

hello, I recently got the Sony mdr xb90ex and they are great for bass, can you compare them to the fxz200. Thanks.

The Sony MDR-XB90EX hits a little harder. The JVC HA-FXZ200 has a nice liquid sub-bass quality. I prefer the JVC for bassy, laid back electronic music and the Sony for heavy-hitting songs. I usually use one before lunch and one after. Both are great.

Not #3. I've had two and they have driver flex/longevity issues.

 

If you listen to more rap than electronic or just need the most bass possible, XB90EX. If you listen to more electronic than bass, FXZ200. Then get the other when you can afford it. ;)

Thanks, the fzx200 will be my next purchase.

I have no experience with customs. I've heard good things about the Lear LCM BD4.2, 1964 V8, and AAW AHMorph W500 but haven't used them.

The FXZ200 sound best with a small-opening eartip (Monster Supertips or NarMoo S1 tips are my preferred). They also made me believe in burn-in, perhaps because of the carbon nanotubes (they got bassier and less treble hot over many dozen hours).

I have used this tips from noble audio before and they are my favorite, they are very comfortable, until I lost them. Do you think this would work with xb90ex?

Those look like Spinfit tips. I have some and they fit the XB90EX.

I don't think they are the same ones, but the spinfit look good. What do you think about soundstage on the xb90ex and fzx200?
