The NEW JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review) - Page 70

post #1036 of 3467

FX850: +100 Hours of burn in process:

OMG the sound changed so much.

-Out of the box, the sound of a guitar string was unbearable and the bass was slow as hell.

-After 50 hours, i replaced the fx850 tips by some other tips. It did help cause it brings some treble in the sound balance.

-100 hours later, i changed back to the fx850 tips cause it felt like the fx850' sound has too much mid bass.

...And wow, with the fx850 tips, the bass frequency response became more linear (it's still a bass monster! :basshead:). The bass isn't slow like it was before (oob) 

There is more upper-mid frequencies than before, nice!. (...but i still want a little more treble  :tongue_smile: ... )

 

I'm curious about the fx750' sound....

Been listening to a few well produced recordings in 16/48 (not even High res) and I'm VERY impressed with how good and natural the FX850 sound with acoustic instruments and voices!!! voices are spectacular with HM801. The FX850 are fun but they also do finesse! Very pleased with them. 

These guys have a lot of character, I'm glad I trusted this thread and decided to buy them even though I had not had a chance to listen for myself first. Not even completely burned in yet and they are great.

Spacial positioning is rather accurate to my ears. Especially in FPS games. It gives you an advantage in game. I've had people call me wall hacker (well not like that hasn't happened before lol). But it is a pretty substantial advantage to have in game IMO.

is it me or the timbre of the FX700 is still unmatched, even with the FX850?

Haven't heard the 700 but I find the 850s's timbre to be amazing even when it's fresh out the box.

Dual question because I'm curious:

1. Anyone else use a dessication jar for these like CIEMS to avoid moisture? I have one, but haven't used it yet. I thought it might be a good idea.

2. What general burn in are you using on these? I'm pretty cautious with all burn-in. Normally I use just where it's more volume than I'd like for comfortable listening and break for 5 minutes every hour. Is this overly cautious compared to others?

Thought it would be interesting to know others care/rituals with their IEMs.

so i take it that the cables which comes with the 850 aren't for sale (yet)? It seems weird to make the cables replaceable but they are not for sale, instead you gotta use other brands.

Drum n Bass. Fast BPM beats with authority. Bassier and faster the better...Drivers get a nice workout in loudish volumes.  I use a 4 hour long compilation on a loop..I just let my phones play it out fairly loud. I would say 65%-75% of max volume on my MX2 dac on my laptop/ burn in station.. Works every time..

Most of the time you'd see anyone looking for a replacement cable to get an upgraded aftermarket cables instead of new stock ones.

The tone is not so much my thing, but it nevertheless impresses me especially on the strings, you can literally feel and hear the wood in the violins and the cellos vibrating. Try it with some classical and you'll see what I mean smily_headphones1.gif definitely a great experience smily_headphones1.gif

That might be more track specific, What were you listening to?

Quite a number from the decca label and the living stereo! And I never got that visceral woody feeling from any other earphone. smily_headphones1.gif so there's a good chance its the earphone smily_headphones1.gif

Maybe it's the wood on the IEM you're hearing ^_^
