Also when I get a chance, I'll do Tenore vs FX850 conparison
I also have both the Tenore's and the JVC FX850. Without getting into a full review, I can make some general comments based on my listening and preferences:
Tenore: Very small, light and "forget-about-it" comfortable. FX850: Quite large and more difficult for me to get a good seal. Not as comfortable as Tenore.
Tenore: Soundstage seems appropriate to the venue and genre of the music. Good depth of imaging. FX850: Very large soundstage, less depth than Tenore. More in-your-face.
Tenore: Accuracy of timbre is just outstanding. Gives a great sense of realism. Needs fairly high volume to sound its best. FX850: Uber-detailed. Maybe more detail than one hears in a live performance. Sense of realism not as pronounced as Tenore.
Tenore: Rather low sensitivity, needs some horsepower behind it to sound its best. FX850: Very easily driven from nearly any source.
Cost: 8 prs. Tenore's = 1 pr. FX 850.
Overall, comparing the two seems to be somewhat like apples and oranges, as the phones are quite different and will likely fill different needs.
I find myself reaching for the Tenore's far more than for the 850's. As they say, YMMV!
