 These FXZs are harder to drive than most iems so while not 100% necessity these take to more power like a champ and scale accordingly.

 

As for the mids and treble. I think the reason why these will find favor from a majority of guys that get them is because of the relaxed nature of the sound on them. Yet lack zero detail. These don't force your ears into hearing the detail don't know if that makes sense. It does it naturally and effortlessly. Think a dynamic 3 driver version of the XBA-3. Even better because they are carbon based drivers. The highs and mid driver are micro HD drivers. One micro HD driver in a FXD80 gives off a crazy amount of imagery so you guys can imagine how 2 of them working in conjunction with a sub woofer might sound.

 

While the music floor of the XBA-3 tends to favor imagery and detail. These FXZ100s I feel are upgrades to the XBA-3 sound in that they add more depth more weight has just as much imagery but is even more enjoyable as sound is on a bigger scale. I know you didn't like the lively highs that was on the FXT90s. No worries here. The tuning on these are absolutely awesome. Everything is refined in the sounds.. No unnaturalness, No weird tonality,  No sibilance, no sharpness, no unevenness,.. Just an absolutely enjoyable full sound. Basically if you guys end up with any one of these earphones. There will be much selling off of old gear I am predicting. Lol.

 

Tonality is a very natural one meaning there is no coldness or darkness to it. Because of the full bass end of both earphones the FXZ100 having less there is a slight tilt toward the warmer side of sound but I find this refreshing coming from JVC. Very easy to listen to but has this crazy amount of refinement that let you enjoy your music for hours with no fatigue of any kind..Very enjoyable the sound is. You guys will find out soon enough. Look forward to everyone's take on what will be 2 classics.

 

How JVC is gonna top these 2. I have no idea. But the way those guys innovate it wouldn't surprise me if there was a FXZ300 in the works.

To buy or not to buy...

 

So guys, it seems that almost everyone here bought from Amazon.jp + Tenso, but the price at Rakuten is cheaper, is it safe to buy through Rakuten, since Tenso will be shipping them anyway, or should I just buy through Amazon.jp?

 

I seriously need to stop reading HF, I bet you that soon enough $400 will fly out of my bank for both 100 + 200 etysmile.gif

I have been checking my page on Tenso, and nothing yet!  Post when yours are delivered!

 

 

Got my FXZ200's and 100's today, just about two days from when they were at Tokyo Airport. Ordered them on Dec. 14th, they were at Tenso on Monday, arrived today.

That was the quickest transaction that I have ever done from Japan/China/Korea.

Isn't "japs" a derogatory term?

I wouldn't use it.

Let's write it up to an innocent mistake. Okay, back to FXZ earphone talk.

Never knew that, guess that's what i get from living in the country all my life....

 

Certainly not intended as such, or i wouldn't be driving an impreza which i love to bits.

 

Guess it varies on the country, we have slang over here that's innocent but over the other side of the water quite offensive, it all depends on context.

 

So the fxz, how do these compare to the fxd?

 

And when these have a warm signature, does that mean they're similar to the eph100?

Yay, mine shipped!  So I guess the next ship date tile on the right hand side of the page is more of a worst case (ie. when I paid it said it would be shipped on Monday).

Treble spikes between 3 and 5 kHz make the treble harsh/piercing and cheap sounding.  Spikes above 9 kHz do not hurt the treble quality nearly as much (if they do), because that is where the sweet treble is.  How are the FXZ100 and FXZ200 on that matter?
