JVC Announces JVC HA-FX300 Earphones
JVC have announced the JVC HA-FX300 earphones, a new high-end model. JVC claims the HA-FX300 employs a range of sound-enhancing technologies, including an aluminum evaporation diaphragm, a new internal dual-metal structure and aluminum housing.
The new aluminum evaporation diaphragm used in the HA-FX300 reproduces high-frequency detail more accurately than conventional cellulose or polymer-based diaphragm designs. To further enhance performance, the earphone features JVC’s new Bi-METAL structure — the drive unit is housed in a stainless steel base wrapped in a high-specific-gravity brass ring to eliminate vibration and energy loss, enhancing performance across the frequency range.
Other innovations are aluminum housings, designed to reduce resonance, and the use of OFC (oxygen-free copper) to minimize transmission loss in the 1.0 meter friction noise reduction cord. The HA-FX300 also offers a plug that is compatible with Apple’s iPhone. To ensure a snug, comfortable fit the headphones come with three different sized silicon rubber earpieces and a pair of memory foam earpieces for a customized fit, while at the same time delivering superior isolation from external sounds and minimizing sound leakage. JVC doesn’t mention the FX300’s weight. With all that metal action, these pups could end up being heavy, and thus, uncomfortable for long periods.
The JVC HA-FX300 in-ear canal headphones are available now for $99.95, and come in black, red and bronze flavors. More information on the JVC HA-FX300 earphones.
