The NEW JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review) - Page 8

Amazon Japan charges a bit of tax for goods sold online so add another $6 or so and then add the Tenso charge for handling and shipping around $20..It comes out to around $375-$380. Tis much better than paying fleabay prices.. Currently the cheapest way to get a pair.

Does Tenso allow to put a lower value on the package to avoid customs?

Rinkya does, but not sure how their charges compare to others in general.

Don't know, might want to email tenso. I am sure they will reply back to you as forwarding is their business I am sure they have been asked that in the past.

I've never been charged for customs using Tenso. I was charged just under $20 for the FX850 using Tenso's service. Total came to just under $385.

How do you like them Danny? How would you rate them against the Flat 4 Sui? I'm still a bit skeptical coming from the FX700...

Actually, it does. At the order consolidation phase (when the product has arrived at Tenso) you can edit the order info, label it a gift and enter a value. That's no guarantee that customs will demand less, as they can still open it up and check the Amazon bill, but the option is there to try.

It's a whole different beast lee. This one has big sound, big bass. I'm waiting to put up impressions but I'm very happy with the sound so far. Vocals are not recessed. Keeps up with the bass no problem. Good treble and no peakiness. I would say it has the biggest stage of any earphone I've heard but does not sound hollow or is ruined by it. This one is definitely a headphone in an in ear. I have 24 hours on it now.

Nice. Looks like I'm getting a pair ;).

I think you'll like it lee. This is the JVC FX Woodie done right. Gotta love bass though, lol. The sound seems to be settling very nicely though.

How would you compare them to the Flat 4 Sui? Do they have a lot more bass than that? That is approaching my threshold for bass as is.

 

If I remember correctly you also had the FX700. So how do these improve upon that? The bass was the biggest issue for me on the FX700 followed by the mid-range. I'd turn it up more to get more mid-range presence but the sheer bass quantity just ruined it....

So far it has significantly more bass than the Sui. There's no getting around that. It's defined well for such big bass. The impact is more felt than the Sui.

It's been a long time since the FX700's but my guess is that the bass is still in the same range. Probably not as loose. Treble is tuned much better than the FX700. Zero sibilance so far. Midrange is not recessed at all. I was listening to Lorde earlier and the music has a good deal of bass but her vocals shined through without issue. Actually it was the best I've heard that song from memory.

Well hopefully it won't be too bassy for me then lol. But when you say the mids are not recessed and the treble is even better that does give me some hope. Means I won't have to turn it up more to get more mid-range which might keep the bass to acceptable levels for me. We'll see :P.

I love my bass but I need midrange and correct treble to have it be a keeper and so far it does that.
