How does the FX850 compare in bass to SZ2000 and the rest of your IEMs

post #272 of 360

Hi folks,

 

has anybody observed something similar with their FX850s ?

The day I received them I tuned down the bass with EQ by a huge amount (almost 8-10 db) and increased the mids. I had them burned in a few nights and every day I found myself changing EQ-settings back towards flat. I am not a huge beliver in burn-in but it really appears to me that frequency response has flattend out. It's like bass has lowered and the mids have come forward. In today's EQ settings I turn the bass down just a few dbs and it sounds ok to me now.

Has anybody had a similar experience with the FX850s ?

hmm the only iems that I have heard which come close in bass presentation:

starting from favorite bass iems AFTER FX850:


CKS1000 most favorite
FX700
XBA-4
IE80
IE8 least favorite


The SZ2000 is a different beast when it comes to the bass "atmosphere". Its bigger, its really big. The soundstage, wideness. The driver is larger. "Its hard for an iem to compete with a can"... well thats what I've heard from a good friend of mine, 12ehan...

But the FX850 does come closer to that experience, compared to other iems I have owned.

I think the FX850 has a perfect presentation of the rest of the frequency(mids,treble), compared to other iems I have owned.

I dont really wanna do a whole comparison, since i'm not really good at it.

But I can definitely hear more details in mids and treble of the FX850 compared to SZ2000.

SZ2000's bass hits real hard and goes deep, its mind numbing, if you have an amp with a bass boost, you are set for life.

Thanks mate! All good!

I'm mostly interested in the bass side comparisons among your collection

I know there's still a wide gap between FX850 as an IEM against SZ2000, just wanting to know a rough idea

Cheers :beerchug:

oops forgot to add the Sony EX1000 to that favorite list of bass iems. It would fall somewhere between FX700 and XBA-4.

If I had the funds I would've by now, can't imagine why you wouldn't.

Slight concerns over fit/comfort but besides that nothing :)

I guess I wasn't alone w this. Turned down the bass a bit after I got it, now it's almost flat. Thought it's my ears adjusted to the sound ...

Yes I agree, some magic... I felt that change in the sound today.

I really don't feel like going back to any other headphone. The FX850 sounds lifelike, live, and atmospheric.

The SZ2000 can't keep up with the FX850's details.

No tip mods or anything needed. Its simply stunning the way it is stock.

I'm interested in the 750s, mostly for commuting. Since the 700s had some isolation issues, I was hoping someone could tell me what to expect on the isolation department. Are these as open as the 700s?

 

I'll be driving them with my Galaxy s4 and my Macbook. Think that's sufficient?

 

 Oh, and they're selling these (650/750/850) on dealextreme for reasonable prices. Seems legit.

Dealextreme actually stock the JVCs? Hard to say legit or not. They stock replicas too. Depends on their suppliers. For the little money saved buying from them I'd rather buy from authorized dealers
