Oh and try this. Take the tips from your JVC FX40 and throw them on there. Then listen. The hybrid tips actually restrict a bit of the sounds. So try a wider tip.
Wow - different tips and fit. I never knew there were so many different types. Hybrids. Silicone. Double flanged. Different sized holes. And such changes to the sound with minute fitting adjustments! Wow.
I returned the fx40, so no experimenting with it's tips. But, I put on my r1 foam tips onto the xba3, and yes, they make a difference in opening up the sound. Sadly the foam tips are making my ears itchy, so I'm now using the r1's double flanged tips on the xba3 (which also seem to have wider openings than the xba3's tips), and they are sounding pretty awesome on the xba3's also. Plenty of fun!
