I am going to Japan very soon and wanna pick one IEM and one headphone;
IEM : FXT90, Klipsch S4, CKM500
Headphone : Denon D1100, Creative Live!, HA-S500
I think around JPY7900 for the ATH IM70 will be a good upgrade of FXT90 (the one i use every day now)
that is around 40% off when compare to HK market price.
alternatives : - JVC FZ100, Sony XBA-H1?? any advice?
Any other suggestion with similar budget?
Headphone; looking for something portable and kind of all-rounder
the Denon D1100 bass is not hard enough, HA-S500 bass is enough, but the mid and high comparatively muddy to me
The Creative Live is in the middle of these two.
I am considering ES700, WS99, JVC HA-SZ1000 and M50
bass impact is good and hit hard, mid and high clarity and extension seems not good as D1100 ;
I can't find any test point here for the other 3;
Is the M50 only come with the coiled cable, which makes it not really portable (I think)
Worth the extra for the M50x? Sound wise same?
before the FXT90, I think I am a basshead;
now, i know balance with enough bass is also very enjoyable
any advice and suggestion welcome!!
