Oops. Looks like I just lost $8.

 

Really doesn't matter much.

 

If these are as good as Dsnuts and mochill say, at a little over $300 compared to high ends out there, these sound like a great deal. I was ready to pull the trigger on some W4r's. I've purchased a few sets of IEM's Dsnuts has recommended and loved all of them, so I have high hopes for the 850's.

 

What is really amazing is they seem to have improved on the sound of the 700's and the one thing that kept me from buying the 700's is the lack of isolation. Sounds like these have good isolation.

You guys are getting a great deal for the FX850s. Worth every penny I spent but now even better.

The prices went back up. I was very upset and sent them an email in English and Japanese and got them to compare the price to the discount I saw on the site earlier today (I had ordered a day or so ago; thank you for posting this!). They took off about $56.00 from my original order. That's a very good deal now IMO. The FX700 were worth the $300 price tag and if these do indeed improve upon them noticeably.... :)

Yep prices tend to fluctuate here and there. Just glad I was able to grab that discount while it lasted. My package was just shipped from Tenso a few minutes ago. Can't wait to here these puppies! :)

You lucky dude. I could have used that 30-40$ discount for Tenso.

I got two sets for 28,966 each. I cancelled my earlier order and jumped on that price.

I wonder if someone was lucky enough to buy it at 3,980 - 39$ !!!

An obvious price error, and order would probably be cancelled, but who knows...

post #176 of 2001

Look what you did now!, I have jumped on these :) It was the promise of amazing imaging in an IEM which did it for me.

Wow, what bad luck. Just received my pair today and it's defective. Something is wrong with the connector. When I plug it into any DAP, it sounds muffled.  Good news is Amazon JP will send me a new pair. However, I'll have to pay Tenso for shipping again. Oh well.

Like really muffled with no definition or you can hear the music but it sounds bloated muffled? If it is the latter I would try burning them in overnight as see what happens in the morning.

 

By the way guys a little update..With over 200 hours of driver blasting these have now become an absolute gem of a sound in every way possible.. Guys that are getting these or ordered these. Please do burn them in for the minimum 100 hours before making a true judgment on them.. Happy listening to everyone.
