I really want the Noble K10 bad, but my car hobby far exceeds my earphone/headphone addiction even though it's a lot less expensive. I try to go for really good stuff that isn't in the ridiculously expensive and great category like the k10 and paring it with the chord hugo which seems like there's a lot of people who have that combo here so I have a RSA Predator and this FX850 that I really like. I feel like if I can just get it to be a little bit better I could be satisfied as long as I stay off of this site and read some review of a new product that is the new flavor of the month. I should just follow mochill to get the scoops. lol
My FX850 purchase was an impulse buy too. I had sold off UE900 that I was disappointed in and was just ok with the cheap but pretty decent AT IM70 and wanted something better without going over 500 or 1000 and browsed a few threads and came across this thread. I normally wouldn't buy a jvc product (I had a few jvc products back in the 80s and didn't last too long due to quality control issues) like I wouldn't buy a domestic vehicle, but went ahead anyway and was glad that I did. If I do upgrade it will be to a top tier CIEM or univeral IEM like the tralucent ref 1 although I find that selling a uber cable that is over 1k itself is ridiculous to me.
So I went ahead with buying the nocturnal hybrid 8. I hope that I don't have issues with the weight of it causing the IEM to fall out, but if I do I have a buddy that has a 535 that I probably could convince to take it off my hands.
I feel ya. It was barely more than a month with my FX850 and the JH13FP coming back soon anytime.
Before I barely had enough time with them I am already looking at the M-Fidelity SA-43, 1964ears V8 and Noble Audio K10... and Audeze LCD-XC.
I am also looking at the Chord Hugo with the Woo Audio Tube Amps.. the head-fi is truly scary for the wallets, looks like I have enough to keep my wishlist full until end of next year already. 😵
