They are not as fast as armatures and that is where the armatures have the advantage but these using carbon drivers have excellent speed for dynamics..The subs have much control in the various types of bass notes.I would say both will be excellent for metal but these have the weightier fuller sound with big punch power for the kicks. Sounds amazing for rock n metal actually. 

 

Listening to Prong Eternal Heat. Sounds freaking epic!

These IEMs might be too good for me xD. I would take a car system over headphones any day because of the soundstage and power. I LOVE subbass, but it needs to be done perfectly imo. These literally sound like the perfect thing for me: 3 seperate drivers, one being a sub; I just wanted to make sure the bass is fast enough. I prefer the sound of a dedicated sub which I've never heard in headphones before. I can't wait to get these.

To be honest......it was the Currawong "Best in Show", Tokyo, that put the JVC HA FXZ200 over the top and into my Amazon.co.jp cart........I believe that makes it a "must have"!

Ya I have to admit Cher took me by surprise. Lol! But hey I am an open minded individual. Who am I to argue with another mans sub tester.

As much as I love Dsnuts's enthusiasm and trust his judgement (he's 2 for 2 on my own purchases) I agree that did it for me after going back to read Currawong's words a couple more times - it's a little hard to pull the trigger so soon on something over $100.  But game changing?  Even if it doesn't mesh with my preferences this seems like a must buy just to experience what it's about.  Even if I have to sell at say a $50 loss it still will be worth it.

Currawong is more experienced than most head-fiers.......I think his words make the 200 a safe bet....lol!

On the fence dudes take note.

 

I just had a terrible thought however. Don't want to rain on anyone's parade but I have my fingers crossed that the headphone gods will bless your purchases. As I have no idea how to return this stuff if something was to go wrong. I know JVC has a warranty on the products but as far as returning stuff to Amazon/Japan. I have no idea. I suppose you can request a return on their English version and return them to Japan within a month much like the US version of Amazon. But don't know 100%. Any one have any experience returning stuff to Amazon Japan?

Oh the FXZ100 loves this one here (especially piano, vocals and strings)

It's worth noting that my impressions were based on my being impressed by it not having the faults most IEMs seem to, eg: percussion sounding tizzy and flat and the un-IEM-like soundstage. I'm probably going to get a pair of the 200s regardless of the fact that FR-wise the are not quite my cup of tea.

 

Given that, now is probably a good time to get them as you can always on-sell them to someone else more local if they don't work out.

Did you hear the 100's and if so what were your impressions compared to the 200? I'm thinking the 200 has about triple the bass level I like lol.

If it does not work out, the fxz100s are a GREAT alternative. However, there is that burn-in method you could try on the fxz200s if it is not your cup of tea. Then it may change to a very friskful IEM that people should buy!

Does anyone know if GR07 tips fit on these?

The same as other people have written: A bit more towards an even sound with more highs and less bass, but a bit less refined than the 200s.

Oh okay, I was curious about the "less refined" part.
