If you are using them out of the house and isolation and build is extremely important - with your equipment, you cannot go wrong with the 846.... The 850 leaks a bit and lets some sound in - if you are in buses, trains, busy streets, etc....

I had a 850, but I did not like that he's not playing inside the head there is no huge stage and the sound is not clean, I sold them after that

That's doesn't sound like the 850s at all.

The soundstage is huge right out of the box and only gets better with layering as you burn them in.

And granted it has a slightly mid-bass hump, but the highs are clear and sometimes even unforgiving with bad sources. The sound tightens up after a period of burn-in but even before it's not bad enough that I would call it muddy.

Agreed - doesn't sound at all like the 850's I know and enjoy (and wish I'd taken to Montana!)

You might have gotten a defective unit. Soundstage is big and the sound is very clean to me.

I think so too..strange.

No issues except that fit is not that great.  I wish they would go in my ear canal deeper and have a better fit and they are quite heavy.  I am worried that the cable I ordered will be too heavy and make them uncomfortable and fall out

Mine just plug in and stay, even I shake my head. Quite comfortable. Isolation isn't as good as my previous Westones though. Now just wait for my first CIEMs (JH16 FreqPhase) and see how they compare redface.gif

I'm like in between ear sizes.  I flip flop between M and L. M is usually more comfortable, but slightly loose.  Maybe I gotta try sony hybrid tips as they have more size variations.

The hybrids would kill the staging (at least for me). Lot of tips to try though.

Hybrids and/or Tips with smaller bore size for me tends to shrink the soundstaging and also articulate the bass presence at the same time.

While it may add depth depending exactly on which tip, generally what end up with me is a sound that is more narrow and less transparency due to a 'fatter' bass note.

The smallest bore size I could go and accept would be something with a bore circumference of the Ortofon Flanges tbh.

Ymmv though! =)

IMO, wide bore tips, like the stock spiral dot's are the best for the 850's.

+1 Even the FAD thread agree that the Spiral Dot tips are very good for most phones.


Only ones I find them to not work well on is those that require deep insertion.

I like the spiral dots too, just that I feel that I am in between M and L and can never seem to get a really good fit compared to other IEMs that I have or had.  Maybe it's the weight.  I do love it's sound.  I have a k712pro coming too and I know that it's quite a different sound, but I need something more comfortable.  Wearing  IEM for over 8 hours can make the ear canal a little sore so I want to mix it up.
