First off, the usual disclaimer: I am not an audiophile, but I know what I like. I enjoy a broad range of music from rock to country to classical and I like to listen to it in a variety of situations - while out for a walk or jog, while sitting at home, driving or while falling asleep.
Ok, that out of the way, on to the review.
I've been on a mission lately to try several different (affordable) types of earbuds to see what the differences are, and what $20 or $40 or $70 will get you. So far, I've tried several - from $5 Big Lots specials to NuForce NE-600, Klipsch S4 to ThinkSound TS02. These JVCs are the latest to cross my path and I decided to give them a try.
Looking for a sturdy pair of 'buds, I decided to opt for the metal-case version of these IEMs (they're also available - and slightly cheaper - in an all-plastic version). Also, I just personally prefer the feeling of metal to plastic. To me, it just seems to make the earbuds seem all that much more durable.
And durable seems to be a very good word to describe these. Along with "stout," "indestructible," and several other adjectives along those lines. These things are BIG! Not uncomfortably so, well, not to me, at least (see below) but if you imagine what most people would consider to be an average size for earbuds - then add about 10% - you'll probably have an idea of the size of these JVCs. Even the cord seems somewhat thicker and tougher than most. It even survived getting caught in a co-worker's locker door without a scratch.
The pair I bought were used but in very good condition and in original packaging, which was the usual over-done layer upon layer of theft-resistant plastic sure to clog our landfill as it slowly refuses to degrade over the next century. Very hard to open, but - since they were used - someone else had done the hard work for me. Score.
With a hard plastic storage case and three sizes of eartips, they came with pretty much everything anyone could ask for. Well, all I could ask for, anyway. The different eartips allow a somewhat custom fit to the wearer's ear canal (especially useful with larger, heavy earbuds like these) and are easily swapped out to find the best fit. The mediums seemed best for me.
Other reviewers remarked that the higher frequencies seemed somewhat harsh, at least until after burn-in, and I would be inclined to agree. Since I bought these used, it is impossible to know how many hours they already had on them before they came to me, but I would venture to say not many, since there was virtually zero wear and tear on the set, and the highs did indeed seem sharp and pronounced. They seemed to settle down a bit after several hours of use, but remain noticeable.
The bass is what most other people seem to love about them and yes, they do have bottom. Full and tight, but not boomy or obnoxious. These seem to be tuned to what I've often seen referred to as "Rock" or "Pop" equalization, where the lows and highs are bumped up and the midrange frequencies are left relatively flat. This is not a bad thing, but it seems best when used for loud, lively, modern tunes - indeed, "Rock" or "Pop." I tried them with classical and they felt a bit uneven, the equalization unnaturally accentuating the dynamics of the music. Even jazz would, I think, do better on 'phones that are more balanced across the spectrum. The separation was good, however and the soundstage seemed decent, if not remarkable.
To get a few other opinions, I took these to work and had a few other people try them. One - a petite Asian woman, said they sounded fine, but were too large for her (admittedly small) ears and another - a 20something guy of average height/weight - said they even seemed uncomfortably large to him. He described wearing them as feeling "like Frankenstein... with bolts sticking out of his neck." Wearing these while jogging might require looping the cords up/over the backs of the ears. Speaking of which - the cord - red and thick, sort of like Monster Cable - terminates in a gold-plated straight plug and seems tangle-resistant and does not seem to transmit much noise through the cable when moving around as I've noticed with other IEMs.
If you're like your music loud and punchy with lots of bass and lively high-end, and you need earbuds that can take a beating, these JVCs might be just the ticket!
After loitering around Futureshop (Canada) for about 30 minutes pondering over whether to buy JVCs FR201s, I decided to take a chance and bought these. I was fortunate to have snagged an older lot, which was near the counter with a label for $Canadian 39. The rest of them on the regular shelf were 69.
My disposition towards getting another JVC XX series was clouded by ambiguity. On one hand, my beloved HA-FX1X broke down after 3 years of regular use (factoring in a price tag of 29 when I bought them, that's pretty sweet). If those were available in-store, I would just go for them (see below). On the other, I had purchased, while still in the US (I am in Canada now), from a 3rd party seller on Amazon, a 3X for 40$ last year. The first one came out defective and the seller gladly replaced another at no charge. Both were garbage.
Here's the dilemma: It so happens that not every 'next generation' product (e.g. 3X) of the same line-up (eg 1X, 3X) is better than the previous. The copies of the 3X I received, even the one that only played through one earpiece, were awful. The sound was 'tinny', seemed to come from a distance, lacked bass and even treble. Over the course of years of moonlighting as an audiophile (not the puritan kind, but the kind that have a wicked smile come across their face when the sound quality is good), I was dismayed. I know it's sometimes hard to get the bass right, especially whilst keeping mids and treble appreciable. But, the treble, seriously? It was muddy, at best. I came to know later on that there were identically, virtually indistinguishable fake 3X circulating in the market (yes, google it). These were so bad, that even my Cowon D2+ couldn't do anything to the sounds, with BBE, MP-enhance etc etc turned on.
Moving on. Spoiled by my FX1X, which had great bass, wide-soundstage (contrary to what a lot of Sennhesiser/Bose/Klipsch fanboys might say) and brilliant treble, I wanted to get another set of XX earphones.
A mic, in-line remote aren't priorities to me. A straight plug, a thicker cable (as opposed to the FR201s) are. I don't care about metal casing, but I was yet to find out the difference a carbon-fiber diaphragm could bring on.
So here's the low-down:
The JVC HA-FX3X sounded ok-ish right out of the box, and as a test track I used a 320kpbs file of Skrillex's Summit playing off of my iPhone, with EQ set to hip-hop. I found the treble to be a bit too brilliant (not harsh, just high). The bass was good, but not as good as the 1X.
As of now, a burn-in time of ~4h have done miracles. The treble has mellowed out, the sound-stage widened, and the bass punchier. Hence that wicked smile across my face again. I am still allowing it to burn-in overnight.
I am comfortable saying that they are now comparable to the 1X. Sound quality might be a tad bit better in terms of 300Hz-1kHz range. That is to say, vocals, mid-range instruments would sound much better on the 3X. The 100 Hz range is just a little lower than that in the 1X. Which, IMHO, a good thing, as 100Hz rumbles tend to reverberate in the earphone chamber, drowning out other frequencies. In layman terms, the bass is 'punchier'. Carbon-fiber diaphragm?
So far, I have played Skrillex, Armin van Buuren, Adele, Thievery Corp., David Garett's He's a Pirate, and I am a happy camper again.
The metal housing doesn't add significant weight, and they are just as comfortable as the 1X. The cord seems to be as robust as the 1X, which were pretty robust (having survived through tramples, getting caught on door-knobs, rolled into balls and thrown in pockets etc etc.)
These headphones are significantly louder than the 1X.
Over all, I'd rate it as follows:
Sound quality (read: quality): 9.5/10
Bass: 20/10 (Yes, mathematically inaccurate, I know)
Comfort 9/10 (I have the medium plugs)
Apparent Construction: 8/10 (Time will tell if the word apparent can be removed). I wouldn't put shiny metal rings while designing earphones as they tarnish from sweat etc.
People who say they are muddy and drown out certain frequency ranges are wrong.
Highly, absolutely and ecstatically recommended. You won't regret it. If you do, I can assure you, either you got counterfeit ones or you don't understand sound at all. I am sorry, it's your bad luck in either case.
To quote 'Insanity Crow' on his review of these:
"If we are to believe what the media tells us, any pair of headphones that costs less that $300 and doesn't have a celebrity endorsement is not an enjoyable listen. We are told that truly great headphones come at a cost, and we are all too easily swayed by salesmen who get paid commission to sell you the big brands that often fill full page magazine adds and promise "Concert like sound". Don't be fooled again- these JVC's run with the best of them, at a fraction of the cost."
Well, I am happy to say these are GREAT for bass, and the treble isnt lost either which is a surprise.
Now, i will say that they need a good source or the full power of the drive isnt reached, when i tried it with my cheap MP3 player it didnt sound all that grate. However, when i hooked it into my amp it was a complete different animal, so i would suggest having a portable amp, or an MP3 player with power.
And as a side note, if you want to by tips for these make sure that there the large nozzle type.
So I would suggest just buying the 1X pair, They really are every bit as good as my "new" ones.
