@kalibur. Yes, 850 sounds even better after some burn in.

They have a really nice sound sig. Can you all bullet point some hints to achieve the best from them. I use an X5 as my portable source and am using the Lg. tips included to achieve a good seal. Also,  the warranty concerns me, I didn't know until I read the only thing in English on the literature that said something to the effect the warranty only applies in Japan.

@subguy812,

 

I'm using mine with DX50 and the results are pretty good. I have just placed an order for the C5 amp and looks forward to hear the combo for myself. 

 

Kendric have gotten good results with some third party cable and you might want to take a look into it. Likewise DannyBai have a nice cable and kamakahah built himself one good looking cables himself. 

 

Personally, the 850 on stck cable is already good but I'm still waiting for my hybrid cable and hope it will bring  more out of the 850.

 

About warranty, I can't commend though as I bought mine locally and have local warranty.

I am currently using them with Stage93's 93spec Premium Silver Cable.

Source-wise I am using DX90 and the synergy is great!

At home I would hook them up via Digital output to Ifi Audio's iDSD Micro and so far results has been nothing short of great.

Once I have the free time I shall comment more about the iDSD Micro itself! =)

Ordered this and absolutely adored it after having applied the fantastic "j444 mod". However, my copy suffered from channel imbalance (about 4 dB). I have returned it to the seller but unfortunately seem to have lost my contact with him so I'm hoping for the best.

 

Anyway, I want to know if anyone else suffers from or have suffered from channel imbalance? Thanks!

Nope, so far so good for me and all is well.

Hope you will be able to contact your dealer and do an exchange ASAP!

Hi guys, I am new to this hobby. I am contemplating getting the fx850 vs the dita. Has anyone made a comparison before? Or is this an unfair comparison due to the very diff price points?

I have not heard the dita, but I can tell you this.  The FX850 is better than many headphones that I've owned which includes the T1 and hd650.  Perhaps it just matches the music that I listen to perfectly.  I just wish the fit was a bit better for me, but the sound is outstanding.  I am debating about getting it a cable. I probably should get a cable for my hd650 as it definitely needs a silver cable while the FX850 is great as is.
