Wait, no love for the jvc fxz200? :D
But before I continue,
Been a lurker in head fi for a while, and decided to join today. Learnt about the audio world from head-fi a lot thanks to you guys. This makes my first post :D
I'm also a fan of trance, but mostly listen to ones composed by japanese indies, like this one: Personalizer - composed by Taishi (I listen with 16/44.1 flac)
Listening to this song through foobar2k -> Fiio E17 -> jvc fxz200 is an absolute pleasure. The powerful bass and sound that envelops your head (the '3D-like' presentation I suppose) makes That intro at the about 11 seconds mark (and the rest of the song, of course) sounds aweh-some on this setup.
Problem with the fxz200 is it doesn't really sound good without proper seal. The default tips given did not do justice: imaging is slightly convoluted from the mids to the highs. On the other hand, Comply tips cause a cut off on the top end of the treble too much to properly enjoy this sort of songs. But then I found that the monster supertips (foam+silicon i think) sealed well for me and man.. Nice separation, powerful bass, natural mids and highs, good details, well extended lows, and very important for trance I suppose: it keeps you toe-tapping all night.
Had the fxz200 for 1.5years now. Eyeing the fx850, altone200
