So, what about these new JVC tips with the perforations? All these new FX850 owners and no mention of them and how they sound:) Unless I missed it. Anybody tested them out on their various phones and see how they rank? Gimmick or does for the sound what they say?

More opening impressions, haven't listened more, but driving somewhere (not at the wheel)...they remind me on 1st listen of the AT 1k, immediately the sound jumps out at you, 3D, holographic. 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.

X3 + FX850= ksc75smile.gif

Thanks buddy. Yeah, I ordered before DannyBai then I cancelled. The first merchant said he wouldn't get the earphone in after the 12th (was a little over $10 cheaper). So I just reordered like Tuesday or Wednesday. That was Jimmy Johns fast!

I won't have them in ears though until probably Monday. I have to pick them up from the gig.

So this is a HP-50, H3, AS-2, and V weekend. Might squeeze in the fantastic Doppio.

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)
