Package|Accessories
The FXD80 comes in a translucent packaging with a few accessories much like the FXT90. They include a cloth pouch, shirt clip, cable winder, and 3 pairs of silicone eartips. Nothing to really get excited about.
Fit|Isolation|Appearance
The FXD80 fits with no issues. Very comfortable and easily forgotten once in the ear. Isolation is also pretty good. The physical appearance is very pleasing to the eyes with its metallic housing and modern look. One of the nicer looking IEMs I've seen recently.
Build|Cable
The FXD80 is built to last with its metal housing and solid cable. It feels very sturdy in hand and I can't see problems arising unless it was really abused. The cable has all the proper strain reliefs and is easy to manage. One of the better cables much like the ones on the FX700 and FXT90.
Sound
The FXD80 has a pretty good sound overall especially in its price. Treble is crisp and airy without being harsh. Midrange is detailed and smooth but a tad laid-back. Bass packs a punch with a decent amount of rumble. Soundstage is a little above average. A pretty exciting IEM to listen to without the fatigue that they usually cause.
The Verdict
For around $100, it's a no-brainer. The sound, build, comfort is way worth the price. The only issue is that it's not sold in the US but places like Amazon Japan with the help of Tenso forwarding service makes it simple to get a set.

  1. Just had mine, last week.
    Better clarity over my previous Monster Jamz. You may hear all the small voices in a music. Vast sound feeling, comfort in your ears, makes live music sounds so real.
    Mild bass and excellent mid range, just nice for jazz class music lover.
