JVC’s Got New Wooden IEMs

jvc ha fx700 JVC’s Got New Wooden IEMs

If you ever wanted an expensive set of IEMs with all the appeal of 1970s wood paneling, has JVC got the answer for you. JVC’s new HA-FX700 is an updated version of their similarly wooden clad HA-FX500 from 2 years ago.

The HA-FX700, which weigh in at 9.6g, feature a 10mm cone driver with a 6Hz-26,000Hz frequency response range at 16Ω. They’re also filled with several tiny parts which I assume are important. They also come with small, medium, and large tips.

So how much will these beauties run you? About $330 USD. But put your credit card back, because they won’t be available ’till February. And if you’re wondering what kind of wood that is, it’s birch folks. Birch. That’s some high quality wood right there. If you ever want wood, that’s the wood to get.

Speaking of which, I’ve got wood right now.

“They’re also filled with several tiny parts which I assume are important.”What kind of fast food product introduction is this? Is this the new “Quantity, not Quality” ABI?Please write some real articles like you used to. Thanks.

dunno whats wrong, I thought it was a little funny, I just figured he was getting at whats the point of so many parts in an IEM, surely half them are more for aesthetic value than that of SQ

Holy shit, $330 bucks? They better sound pretty good for THAT price.

The wood look is so tacky just like those hideous American cars from the 70′s with the wood panelling.

The FX-500 sounds pretty good. The midrange was somewhat too recessed for my tastes though. I hope they keep the bass quantity the same but make the midrange better (either neutral or slightly forward). Then an only then would this phone would be worth $300.

@Marco – Can’t take a little humor, eh?
