Bass is crazy (as my daughter would say), round plentiful, but don't seem to impinge on the mids. Nice case, a bit large, closes with magnet (like AT - think the AT comparisons are a coincidence?). Wood body is pretty, haven't had a chance to play with tips yet.


Good observation I think the CKS1K does share some similarities but unfortunately the CKS1Ks are outclassed in every way just about exept for depth perhaps. The sound stage is actually larger on the FX850s. Balanced better, tonally much more correct with better definition, more spacial qualities, a much higher end treble and timbre once burned in correct..CKS1KS have somewhat of an off tonality in the mids compared to the more natural tonality of the FX850.( Comparing to a well burned in FX850 that is.)

I would burn the FX850. Gazillion hours.. Actually around 80-100hours and they finalize in their sound signature any extra has minimal change.( Debatable if the cable needs the extra run in time)  Burn in definitely needed.

Sound will tighten with better clarity with fantastic definition. Tighter bass, Mids become much more focused, treble becomes more dynamic..Will improve in every way possible actually from open listen.

I'm sure they're better, haven't heard the AT 1K in a while, but I do remember the striking impression they made when I first heard them, technicolor, as they used to say in the old movies, almost bigger than life...The JVC's made the same kind of initial impression, but I'm sure they outdo their competitors.

When it rains, it pours...went to a middle school show (13) to see the son of friends perform, came home, XBA-H3 waiting for me, oy oy oy oy oy oy!!!! (first world problems smily_headphones1.gif)

Didn't even get to DOGWALK DISCOVERIES!!! Maybe later (I know everyone waits with baited breath, LOL)

OK, just getting to Dogwalk Discoveries!!!
First,it's almost Sunday, time for services


Some old time Gospel calls for some old time blues, piano blues, that is...


Power Pop/Punk Pop fans, my 15 year old's contribution to my musical education...

Listened to the studio version of this, nice, but this live version will certainly do...

First take On unboxing and putting in the Sony XBA-H3's...OH NO, another fit-nightmare, hope I can find tips that work, the small selection Sony includes aren't cutting it.

Last early impression on JVC Woodies...not too bad a fit despite large body size, chambers. Large,mwide soundstage, phenomenal bass, treble there, coming long as I listen, likely smooth after break in. Upper mids slightly recessed, female vocals very slightly distanced. Have to take them out to break them in, but don't feel like taking them out yet...bigsmile_face.gif

One of my test tracks for every headphone/earphone is "Shambala" by Beastie Boys.  Try that out with the FX850's.  There's a lot going on in the music and sounds great with a headphone/earphone that can showcase the depth and layering that's in the music.

Fabulous Metheny, had to be played real time, no one could "lip-sync" (?guitar-sync) that, Bravo!

That's great, listened on Mog, JVCs sound great on these. Want to go to the source, really great recording? Olatunji, "Drums of Passion", Track Jin-Go-Lo-Ba.
Time to crash...

glad you liked Olatunji, Drums of Passion.  Olatunji was my live drum teacher for years at the ESALEN institute in Big Sur CA.  he was the "ambassador of drums"

and a true messenger of peace through music rhythm and dance!   and that album is a great recording.
