The NEW JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review) - Page 98

post #1456 of 3467
@RatFarm oh really, treble extension of sm64 is even smoother than 850, bad news frown.gif(
post #1457 of 3467
Not sure I hear it the same way, 850 definitely better in the bass department, felt SM64 did detailing/soundstaging better, but that was before the attenuator/Ray Samuels combo got into the act. The 850 definitely closed the gap in those areas with that combo, but I haven't compared them to get a sense of whether it caught up, passed the SM64, or the SM64 is still ahead in those areas (it definitely is ahead in comfort/fit, at least in my ears).

Well I found a headphone. It's $150 more, right at my limit for price, but I feel it's worth it. I just wanna know if the tips from the FX850 will fit onto the Senn IE800.
Also, is the 800 capable of using a different cable? Some say it's quite microphonic.

What do you all think? Any similar headphone that's a bit smaller or something that would fare better for workout/running? Similar as in neutral with clarity, same soundstage and great bass, lalala..

I like the Narmoo S1, good fit, reasonable, sound really nice through DX90.

Appreciate the suggestion. Pretty set on getting the Senn's now. IE800. Emailed Senn about a different cable (maybe I could just outright buy one).

Oops, thought you wanted inexpensive knock arounds that sounded god. Don't have the Sennheiser, heard it at a meet, sound great the top of the line Shure iem (?850?) are also supposed to to great sounding and fitting.

Yeah, those would have done, but I'm a minimalist, so if I can get the best of both it's better. IE800 is end game IEM for me. Won't hit end game over ears till I get the stax sr-009 :P, but for now, shall settle for one of the planars. Maybe the HE400i.

I finally listened to the FX650s I bought for my wife....and I was pleasantly surprised that they come pretty close to the FX850s. What a nice surprise. I am selling almost all of my headphone gear to fund another hobby, but I think I will keep these, especially since my wife hardly used them.

 

Anyone who wants to try the JVC woodie sound but does not want to spend for a pair of 850s should definitely check out the 650s.

The JVCs sound great with the smaller iCAN Nano amp for a less expensive and more portable solution, although it is still pretty large for a portable.

Is anyone selling a spare pair of those Spiral Dot tips, sized Medium? :L3000:

 

Trying to avoid paying $40 for tips... 

post #1466 of 3467
Have u guys tried ICAN or compared it to Headstage arrow 4T? Does it make sound better when pairing with 850?

From what I've read MMCX connectors are kind of delicate and applying a light amount of force doesn't seem sufficient. I'm not quite comfortable applying more.

like all iem, you have to hold the cable and pinch against the iem to push out the cable(your thumb and index fingers will push against the shell of the iem while holding the cable, the iem will be pushed away and the cable will come off.). NOT pull it out. do a search in youtube. there are some videos showing how to do it.

The bass on these things are quite impressive lol

From pictures on this thread I thought they were bigger but they're a lot smaller than I expected ..

Cable and packaging not too impressive for what it costs but other from thay , definitely enjoying it !

Anyone has both the DN-1000 and the FX850?

How do you think they compare? I just got my FX850 and had a short listen, probably only 20 mins. I think they are quite similar. However,  I do think the soundstage of the 850 is much wider and the clarity is better. Instruments sound more realistic and mids are more forward. I don't know how to describe the bass and treble tho. Maybe I will have to spend more time with it. Listening to music with lots of focus on instruments are definitely very enjoyable. Definitely a step up. What do you guys think? 

Then my Clip+ plays Daft Punk's Derezzed....dat bass..now I understand.

I don't wanna take them off..

Listening to my preowned well burned in (260 hrs) 850s has been a revelation.  after replacing the stock cable with the Filo silver upgrade cable, the bass was

tamed and the whole SQ well balanced.  hearing things i never heard before in well listened recordings.  Psytrance just explodes in new gestalts of sound,

rock guitars have color and body, and voices sing like angels.  a true breakthrough product!  how did i live without them?  they synchronize well with DX90 and

benefit greatly from amping.  using E12 gives them power and grace. about to try RS amps with them for some more refinement and class A goodness.

Kudos to JVC for hitting one ou of the ballpark with the 850s.
