I agree with you, that $280 deal was amazing, but there was a deal pertaining the woodies for $80....
that was even worse...
And definitely, I don't believe these will best the fx850s, but the height + width of these earphones are actually equal, which is something I never expected. Most of the time, I hear wide WIDE soundstages without having an equal amount of height.
When you mean that the fx850 has a huge soundstage, from your impressions, you mean both width and height, corerct?
I want to hear 11 flights of stairs in my earphones, with these iems, I hear at least 8 small flights.
If I got that $80 deal I'd have grabbed as many as possible and sold it to Head-fier just to fuel the hype.
I mean huge. I love my iems but I have never thought it was possible for it to have a soundstage bigger than open headphones. Height or width I have yet to hear anything that matches these in a closed can, let alone in-ears.
