Bass is solid and does have mid and sub bass in the mix for this sound. ...

I was mentioning to Danny that this big forward sound without mid bass would sound off..Absolutely musical and organic in approach...

 

. These have lushness in the sound signature like no other phone I have heard..

 

 The best sounding JVCs I have ever heard by far.


Dsnuts ( or Mochill ) there was a comment made that stuck in my mind about the FX-700 models where they said it reminded them of speakers, and that after a few minutes it fooled you into not knowing where the sound was coming from. Let us know if you get anything like that in these 850's, it would be appreciated I am sure

I have both.  HPH-200 has a lot more bass quantity than Mikros 90, but doesn't sound as detailed.  This is straight out of laptop.  If amped, from what I've read, it would seem that Mikros 90 is better.

I'm still burning in both before I decide which one I like more for my music genres (pop and rock).

1+
I have both as well, wrote them up a while ago, felt they were about the same in terms of an ultimate rating, though they sound very different. Since then, the bass on the Mikros has increased (changed cables, had about a week burn in at the time I wrote them up, but seem to improve with even more burn in...),

Still feel the Mikros are more open, detailed, Yamaha has more bass, ML more distinct, detailed, like them both.

I need to as well. My M90's may actually be defective, because I'm not being wowed by them anywhere near as much as everyone else seems to be.

I've generally been with you, like them but didn't quite get the hysteria...bass seems to come and go, really fussy on head positioning (and even with care, sometimes I just can't find it), but they are sounding better and better the longer I have them, though, may need kazillion hours burn in (or may be brain burn in...).

That's the freaky thing about them. I don't know what it is (burn in, brain burn in), but they are sounding real good to me now. And now about time to commence with the mods...

On open listen it is the most spacious sounding earphones I have ever heard.. These are simply dreamy sounding. I knew these would sound good but I had no idea to what extent. I have had plenty of WOW moments on open listens of phones but I don't recall one that left me slack jawed like this one. These are stunning in every way possible. These are absolutely beautiful in person but the sound. I have them on the burn in and I will do a proper write up but for now. I highly doubt guys will dislike this sound. It is the best totalphile phone I have ever heard.  These phones so far has it all and then throws the deepest widest stage with the most spacious sound leaving one..

 

Slack Jawed! Stunning just stunning.

 

Oh no.... my wallet screaming... "stay away from this post... !"

Look at the big size of the housing.  All that space for one high end driver.. You can imagine how that is gonna sound. I am convinced that larger housing using chambers with metal inlay in them. These use brass I believe. Leads to this large deep sound then it is vented out back..  CKS1Ks also has these traits because of the dual air chambers they use...These JVCs however take it to another level. 

 

When I was comparing my full sized SRH1540s I was very surprised the stage of the FX850 was not noticeably narrower than the Shure headphones. Lol. And those don't have a small stage..

These would be your ideal out and about earphones. These sound like what you would get if you was driving some very nice woodie cans from a warm tubby amp with lots of power. . Bad to the bone!!. People will be jealous of your woddies!

 

One new observation. I noticed the tips on these FX850s are brand new in design for JVC. These are not the same tips they used for the FXZ and many other JVC iems. The sound nozzle is fairly wide for an iem and these tips lines up perfectly with how wide the nozzle is so it seems to me JVC did not pull a Sony in the one hybrid tip fits all for every earphone they make category. No need for tip rolling at all. Included with a nice hard box case with memory foam inlay are 2 sets of foams tips with the standard sized silicones. These earphones are luxury wooden high end iem looking bad mumbo jumbos. They put a lot of attention to detail on these. My vote for the coolest looking iems this year. No picture can do the real deal justice. Oh and they sound better than they look.
