I was bored last week so i thought i would scout for some new in ears.. Stumbled across these FXC51, the micro HD driver and the placement of it made me pull the trigger. First impressions is very positive!
Soundstage is impressive. I have not heard an iem sound so "airy" as these. Bass is perfectly weighted and highs are crisp and clear. I would like the midrange to be a bit more prominent, but for the money it might be to much to ask.
The first impression downsides?
Cable is rather flimsy and weak. I would love to have an angled 3,5mm plug on these. Since the housings are vented, they leak more then average. Isolation is not super, but good enough.
i bought a set of Sony XBA-1ip for my phone when i was in germany. I paid very much for them but i had money to spend at the moment and wanted to give BAs a go. The JVCs sound better in every way, they might lack a little bit of the separation the XBA-1 has but seriously.. They are good!
Now i just need to get my hands on the other JVCs that supposed to be good.. You got to have them all right?
