I see you have a lot of high end BA's in you sig. lol.  Did your 850's come in and how do they sound if they did?  If mine don't come in by Monday I am getting a refund since the tracking said they were delivered to somewhere in California, and I live in Canada.

 

To drown my sorrow of possibly not getting my woodies I ended pulled the trigger on a Vorzuge Pure ii today.  I couldn't resist the head-fi temptation:evil:  Now I really have to stop spending.

I have them - but surrounded by family and not able to do much other than an unboxing - damned impressive though...

 

I'm in California - maybe PM me your tracking and see if it is the same as mine - then you have a chance!

These spiral tips from Denon is making my other iems sound really good,

FAD HEAVEN4 gets a good thump on the bass...

even the forgotten monoprice 9927 opened up with textured bass n shimmer coming thru.

 

 

listen to this vid on HDquality with FX850, quite a treat..that big big sound :P

I have had the JVC FX850s for about 3 weeks now and I have been really enjoying them.  Out of curiosity what other IEMS with a similar price range sound just as good compliment these?

post #1298 of 3490

This has been bit of a frustrating morning - somewhat expected though....

 

The stems of the FX850 are on the short side and I am having trouble getting a consistent seal. The included tips are not working - I have some large Comply that are almost working - trouble is I have a large canal opening and then an immediate turn in my ear - the only universals I have been able to get to work on a consistent basis lately were my W3's, 1p2's, and V8's - the V8 is great because it has such a nice long stem - but the JVC is stubby. My Westone was stubby, but the orange-cored foams were both large diameter and LONG - so they worked great - I would have preferred a larger core, but they worked - I just tried pulling the core out of a Westone foam, but the small opening collapse and no sound gets through without the hard core... (ha - he said Hard Core!)

 

I need to find a silicone or foam that has a large diameter and some length - I have some other westone tips, including some triples - but the core is too small to fit the JVC....

 

I also just found a sealed Meelec M6 - and it has some double and triple flanges inside - does anyone know if they will fit the JVC?

 

This is what I'm talking about....

 

V8 - long stem

 

JVC short - even with double-flange - too short

 

aarrgghhh

I hope it works out for you trying some different tips. Bought a used pair of 850's this morning. Hope I don't have the same problem. :(

post #1300 of 3490

The Meelecs fit the 850 - but still not a decent seal - all mid-bass - I can tell the 850 has some wonderful bones - but as yet haven't been able to hear the whole package for more than a few minutes :triportsad:

post #1301 of 3490

So how do these compare to the H3's? I'm thinking they are relatively similar sounding from what I've read? I don't know tbh, these look much more ergonomical however
Also will be listening to mostly EDM so if anybody can point me in the right direction that would be great! :D

Unlike most iems I have used, the FX850s sound best to me with shallow insertion. Usually the sound gets better if I find tips that allow me to insert the earphones deeply in my ear canal, but these JVCs sound great with the large included tips and the headphone just resting in the opening to my ear canal.

 

Are you trying to get a deep insertion? Maybe try just letting them sit outside the ear canal. They sound amazing this way, very full and rich.

Not trying for deep insertion - I have never been able to get an IEM to go much deeper than the ear opening as I have a pretty severe turn - one reason customs have been such a revelation for me - The problem with the JVC is that with its extremely short stem, I haven't found anything to seal off the opening to the ear. That's what I liked about the Westone foam - it was long and fat. If the core was a bigger diameter, it would be perfect.

How about the comfort plus comply tip tsx-500? They are a shorter round tip that you wouldn't have to insert far. I'd imagine you could get them in the 400 series as well.

My advise to those who have the JVC FX850 and the JVC FXT90:

1/Buy the Fiio RC-SE1 cable.

-It will clean some of the bass and add some treble.

(Be aware that this cable has a lot of microphonics)

2/Try the FXT90 tips on the FX850

-With the FXT90 tips (versus FX850 tips): the bass will lost some weight without loosing impact and a peak in the treble region will appear .

(I have been using monster tips for some days but the FXT90 tips are so much better :wink_face:...and it's easier to get a good seal with the FXT90 tips )

 

These changes are subtle, but to my ears, Voices and Guitar strings are greatly improved:
