The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1536

I'll wait a bit for the prices to calm down before pulling th trigger on them. But a 6000yen drop is pretty awesome.
post #23027 of 32910
Thanks for the price drop notice, BenF- I cancelled my order right after you posted that. Seller sent me an email which said(badly translated, mind you) that there might be a deduction for packaging since it was "preparing for shipment"...I hope not. They were taking forever to ship(over a week, no apologies for the delay, etc) but luckily it was long enough to discover seller ec-joy had it cheaper(28,966 yen; ended up being 291 with the exchange rate). Anyway, you saved me $50- glad I'm more addicted to Head-Fi at the moment than Amazon, lol.

I'm betting there will be a lot of FX700 comparisons coming as their owners(myself included) jump at the opportunity to take the next step in the FX-series legacy...can't wait.

The price drop seems to have made the HA-FX850 the #8 bestselling headphones on Amazon.co.jp.

 

Only 4 left in stock... hmm...

post #23030 of 32910

I'm also getting refunded $45 for the price drop. Amazon is great.

Guess I shouldn't wait too long to get my pair then. Hmm....
post #23032 of 32910

Yeah, don't wait to long. Amazon might jack the price up again once the remaining 4 units are sold.

Looks like their current stock has run out and they raised the price a bit more. Although it says:

 

Usually ships within 1 to 2 months.

 

... from past experience, their estimates are usually conservative (they'll probably be back in stock within a week or two is my guess). I managed to resist this wave. :D 

 

EDIT: It looks like they did indeed raise the price back up to around its original value.

 

EDIT #2: Back in stock already (9 at the time of this edit).

Awesome job finding all these deals BenF. Keep'em coming! :D I missed this train but I'll be sure to be ready for the next.

It's finally HERE and in my ears!!! And YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! :etysmile:   This is how I dreamed (wished) the FX700 would have sounded like when I first had them. The bass sounds about as big as I remember in the FX700, but tighter and moe refined. The hot treble has been toned down some to my liking. I think the overall sound is a bit more refined. In freakin--- credible sound, but one that I was familiar with the FX700, but the FX850 takes it to the next level. And NO RECESSED MIDS!!  <<< my biggest gripe with the FX700. Wow wow wow!! Yes, I'm hyping them!! 

 

Now I happen to have the AS-2, and I think it keeps up with the FX850 with vocals (thinking this may change with the woodie burn-in), but the FX850 is otherwise ahead of the game. And I've heard no dynamic fast other than the TE-05. Huge wide sound! For $300 it's actually a BARGAIN fellas! If you can find it at $288 to $300 don't hesitate, but it's worth $400 easily in sound too. Happy listening indeed! 

 

 

And ooooh that timbre! Nothing else like it in an earphone.

post #23038 of 32910

I think the FX850 may actually have a bigger sound than the FX700.

 

 

This is an audiophile basshead's wet dream! I'm just saying.

One other thing, I couldn't really get a good seal wearing them straight down. But I'm getting a perfect seal over-ear. 

 

And next to Aurisonics' beautifully "blinged-out" audio jewels, this probably the most beautiful earphone I've ever owned, with a fantastic case. Loving the new tips too.

It will be 250$ in a month or two, then I'll jump in.
