Curra, your face was amazing as you checked out the TDK earphones. They are incredible at their price point, aren't they? I'm on a wait list of sorts for them when they hit at the end of November.

Thanks a lot for the report, quite enjoyable reading!

If anyone cant seem to find the JVCs on the site, they're on the Japanese site, so unless you can read Japanese, we only stare and drool. stare and drool.

Also, if anyone has auditioned the FXZ 100/200 for long enough to write a review, could you please link me and/or tell me how they stack up to wooduos 2 or the R-50s in terms of SQ and bang-for-buck?

Thanks!

I'm very tempted to get a pair actually. I remember the AD2000s being intense -- the kind of intense that you have to take a day's break from listening too because all other headphones sound asleep afterwards, but in the face of orthos and 'stats their sound was too harsh. The AD2000X didn't seem to have that harshness that I remembered when I tried them.

That wont be possible for anyone until at least the 20th as that is when they are released.  I considered simply asking for a review pair but considering that I want to buy a pair  I may as well just do so then review them as I feel like it.

No picture of the MA700? frown.gif

 

The HA-FXZ100 looks even less discreet than the TF10:

Talk about cutting to the chase with the price! The Sonys, which surprised me a year ago, have been discounted like mad now. It's funny to think before that I was totally uninterested in IEMs, re-enforced by how horrible they sounded, generally, compared to full-sized headphones.  I reckon these companies might almost totally turn this around.

I don't care if I'll look like a friggin frankenstein monster. is they sound the way I like it, than I' gonna totally get the fxz100 (due to it's alleged more balanced frequency response...)

I was glad to be able to take advantage of that discounting recently (I love those xba3's). Now, if I can just hold off for a year or so from from reading anything that you have to say about the fxz's, then maybe I'll be able to get them also at a discount. WIsh me luck lol!

Indeed! Two months ago, I didn't think that I would ever even have any iem's. That was before meeting dsnuts. Anyway, I quite like them now smile.gif

I hope they are not as heavy as they look. I find my fxd70's to be on the verge of being too heavy. Those fxz100's don't look any lighter!

I told you I liked them better than I did the new Stax portable rig didn't I? evil_smiley.gif

 

Anyhow, today was release day so I might look at getting a pair of each.
