Ok I am gonna try n describe how these lay onto your ears.

 

Imagine flipping these up and over the ear.. See how they have a natural angle? These can be worn straight down or with the cord up and over the top of the ears. Because of the natural angle of the earphones when worn over the ears.. The housing lays on top of the ears and do not stock out like you see in this picture.


It is a lot more ergonomic than what this picture presents when worn over the ears. And I suppose with the use of down pillows you can sleep in them as they will lay parallel to your ears vs sticking out. But like I said. Once you see how nice these are.. There is no way anyone is gonna attempt to sleep in these. That is just asking for an accident to happen..A light nap maybe.. But full on sleep?. Or better yet. Using one of these! solves the problem.

Well I don't know if they are actually better..Both are very enjoyable and you know the SRH1540s are fantastic phones and believe me I didn't expect the sound from the FX850 to be this good. It is a sound that lingers and I can't deny them..I asked myself before I posted that if I would rather listen to my SRH1540 or my FX850.. It was my FX850.. I am lucky as I have both. I doubt I will get rid of either one but in the end..Yes I do prefer what I am hearing out of these JVCs. They have completely won me over.

That should be a new requirement for earphone description. Can or cannot be slept in. Never thought about that as a part of a review.. Will have to incorporate that for fellas like you that must sleep with iems.

 

I think I would end up destroying some precious iems if I slept in them as I would be dreaming that a jealous iem is choking me and I would end up yanking the phones out of my ears in fear that they would come alive somehow and choke me in my sleep. Nightmare scenario.


I don't blame guys for listening to their favorites to fall asleep to.. I suppose our parents embed that into our makeup when they play music for us to sleep to as a baby. Making little audiophiles in the process.

Haha it's cool, it was an honest mistake. I went ahead and got the Fostex for her so I guess I'm getting that best sibling award :D

Haha

As I travel alot the "can or cannot be slept in" kind of become one of the things I look out for in an IEM as I'm looking for an all-in-one package as I'm highly unlikely to bring a few of my IEMs along all the way. That same rule also applies to keeping a low profile out on the streets and not having them sticking out of my ears much, so "can or cannot sleep in" is kind of my lazy way to sum that all up

I've the CKS1000 and M200 and yeah they kinda left me with this ideal that I'm looking for

No doubt the FX850 is great, but not the one I'm looking for if I'm going to pay that much money for it

What a time....fx850...te-05.....doppios....just seen B&H is taking pre orders for fiio x5.  Good thing my asg2 sold.  Down to my mikros for daily use and philips x1, mainly for gaming with mixamp/ps4.  Prolly get doppio and x5 next, then look at classifieds for fostex eventually.  Then the 850s to ultimately replace my asg2.

OK, time for battle of the titans...Sony XBA-H3 or JVC FX850, huh? Huh??? Put up your dukes, you guys,get in your corners, may the best iem win!!!!!

I'm a big sleep in the iem person, but I seem to have figured out ways to sleep in almost anything...ATH 1K??? No Problem! TF10? No problem??? Bigger problem with these big, odd shaped iems is seal for me...

You know the one earphone I was thinking that sounds great that is low profile and sounds great out and about is the RHA MA750. You should look into them.. They don't cost much considering their excellent all round performance plus industrial type solid build. Definitely sleepable. as well.

The dunu dnk is sleepable iem for me with the smallest grey tips😎
post #22737 of 26190
Listen to dsnuts and me...them fx850 will blow your MIND!!!!!!!!!!💕😍😎
post #22738 of 26190
Yup doc! How do you do that?
post #22739 of 26190
Head on the edge of the pillows 😎

WEll, I've always had the habit of leaning my head on my arm, which curls around my eyes, and the arm leans on the pillow when sleeping on my side (which is how I always sleep). Think it started as a way of keeping light out of my eyes in the morning (must have had crummy shades in my room as a child). When I have larger iems, that go out further, just lean the upper part of my head on my arm, which is on the lowest part of the pillow, which keeps my ear elevated off the pillow. Comes from years of sleeping this way, not sure if you can pick it up as an adult, but maybe...
Having said that, The iems that are the most comfortable to sleep in are the, that I have, are the Westones (W3, W4, W40 are the ones I've used). Amazingly flat in-ear fit, comfortable, great isolation. You may like others better sound wise, (but they really do sound great), but of the ones I have, whch is much too many, they are the ones easiest to forget when they are in (of course, many out there I haven't tried).
May give sleeping in iem classes, love to teach:D
