I just did a short a/b session with the D80 and Z100 and the D80 seems bassier.  

 

I have to try that. I just can't see how that is possible DannyBai, but I'm not discounting what you heard.

Then again, except for that mega sub-bass, the FXZ100 is fairly balanced.

Yeah cute, but DannyBai and Dsnuts beats you over the head with a sledgehammer until you submit. I just keep slowly and gently pushing you toward the cliff. lol

It was painfull, but I went over the cliff before the New Year.........200's will be here next week....lol! 

 

You would not believe how "Pamafunk" by the "New York Funk Band" 24/96 sounds on my S500/HM5 pad/DHC cabled, I guarantee you have never heard anything like this combo, heck it's not even a S500 anymore!  If the 200 sounds anything like this I will be surprised!   biggrin.gif

Yeah it was a quick session.  Only two songs.  I think it's how these FXZ's handle each piece of music.  It's balanced when it should be and kicks the bass when it's called for.  I realized many earphones/headphones can do this but the FXZ's do it effortlessly and with finesse.

Yeah, I'm just not hearing nowhere near the same amount of bass in the FXD80 as in the FXZ100, DannyBai. But I do think the FXD80's soundstage is more forward (and hypothetically more in your face) giving the illusion of more bass somehow. And I think there's more mid-bass hump in the D80, but FXZ100 is like smoothed out powerful sub-bass on the lines of the Adagio 3 (but the JVC is way clearer). Except for my customs (and the Aurisonics), I haven't heard bass in this arena like the FXZ100 has.

Yep it's the mid-bass that has me hearing this.  I can't wait for you to hear the 200 and read what you have to say.

So while waiting for bus I went to a closeby electronic store and listened to FXZ100 for 5 minutes. Nice bass, but the highs sounds a bit off for me. Maybe I should do a longer listening session with it next time.

 

(Yes, I live in Japan btw.)

I know that the heir audio 4ai cost twice the price, but could somebody pls make a comparison?

How did they sound off? Too bright, too warm, or what else?

I've been silently following along this thread since the inception.  I took a (healthy) hiatus from buying phones & decided to enjoy what I had... then I went off and splurged on the Magni/Modi stack, the Beyerdynamic DT770 AE, and am currently having my TubeDAC-11 hacked/upgraded.  I also just ordered the AS-2.. and the BA200.  All on the past month and a half.. so my wallet went 'running for the hills.'

 

I'm intrigued by both the 100 & 200.  The 200 seems to be the more technically accomplished.. but I'm not sure if that's enough for me to get over it's "bass head" tendencies.  I'm always impressed with well designed, uniquely constructed, bass heavy phones; but that tuning tends to wear on me when it comes to long term ownership/listening.  I've got no doubt the 200 does justice to this sound with the best of them.. but the 100 seems like a better starting point to get a hold of what JVC intended with this series.

 

I'd like to audition it before buying and, thankfully, my friend DannyBai might give me a chance to do so.  I'll certainly offer my thoughts on them.

Indeed.  I typically prefer balanced, neutral-ish sounding IEMs due to their versatility and propensity for transparency.. but I'm not truly biased against any specific sound signature.  I can appreciate any phone's tuning as long as it's cohesive & I sense there was some thought put into it's sound.

Thanks, bud.. you've got an email.

Well. I pulled the trigger. Ended up buying from Amazon Japan with delivery to Tenso, then to Australia.

 

Problem is - stupidly left the billing address the same as the delivery address and for the life of me I can't change it!

 

I'm concerned my CC company might I.D it as fraud... grrrr.

post #780 of 3189

Nevermind. Cancelled the order and did it properly.

 

Weird though - with this new order I can now see the buttons to change the order details.

 

These puppies are on their way - hopefully they'll make me forget all about the lucky bastard that probably found my GR07s on the train.
