Still says "Requested". No option to buy.
Edit: It's up.
Sorry! Dev Team working on right now...
AND we're UP!
I just ordered. Thanks!
Easy there. Let's not turn this into a head fi jizz thread.
We have sold 400 of the 490 unit limit in only a few days.
You have played a big part in this launch...thank you, SBAF!
JVC has also been excited and watching our progress.
We asked JVC and they checked with their internal teams and factory to see if we could increase the pre-sale limit to 665 units.
JVC has just confirmed today that they can increase the limit to 665 units WITHOUT affecting the ship date before Christmas.
The limit has been raised, I’m very glad that many of you can enjoy these soon!
^Everything okay, @spoony ?
Sorry for the noise, it's just that Drop suspended shipping to my country years ago and there's not much I can do.
^Oh darn. Thanks for explaining.
@CEE TEE What are the current odds on future drops of the FDX1?
how would CT know now? and why would he care?
I guess what you're saying is that @CEE TEE must no longer be working for drop.com and I missed it which if correct is obviously the answer to your rhetorical questions.
There is a thread here, think it was a poll, about CEE TEE becoming a staff member here after leaving massdrop. Was fairly recent. If you scroll up a bit to one of his posts, you see he's no longer MOT, now staff.
Hey there @DigMe ...given the success of the first pre-sale, I think there will be <at least> another FD-X1 order after this batch arrives.
You guys did a great job of welcoming JVC Audiophile back to the US and creating good buzz for some excellent IEMs.
The question for JVC and Drop will be "what else should they bring over"? Maybe start a new thread if you have requests (not sure how that will be decided from here on out but we can give them a thread to watch).
Thanks to a week long loaner via @zerodeefex a few weeks back, was very surprised to find these JVC HA-FDX1 super refined and great sounding, they'll probably end up being my everyday walk around IEM!
never owner an IEM with DD before, only demoed the Campfire Audio Vega previously, the bass of those shook the jawbone.
Overall when listening to the JVC HA-FDX1 via iFi iDSD or WA8 Eclipse, the overall sound was very balanced, with the slightest bit of bass punch when called upon. I didn't find the mids/vocals to be forward, which is a preference- hate it when singers are at nose level.
Plenty of body bottom to top, with no shrill treble or sloppy loose bass.
Comfortable as well, despite them feeling a bit heavier than looks anticipate.
Now these don't have the atmosphere and openness of Campfire Andromeda, nor maybe that last bit of treble air and detail.
and aren't the DD IEM for basshead monsters either.
Glad I stayed in the Drop for these, at the price they are a steal. let's give @CEE TEE and the JVC Mod king @james444 here all due credit for bringing a superb all around AND affordable IEM to the planet.
hope the December delivery date holds without any QC issues. (ahem, polarity)
now if only eBay prices for Spiral Dot++ from Japan weren't so expensive!
Which filters were you using?
thanks, good question. um, - whatever the stock ones were? I didn't swap them out at all.
also forgot to mention, for some reason I loved the ergonomics on the cable!
supple, didn't twist or bind or feel uncomfortable.
would easily buy a balanced cable of same material as these Drop JVCs.
IMO - ergonomics of an IEM cable are critical to acceptable wearing whether inside, outside, while commuting, etc.
You used the blue filters.
