The NEW JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review) - Page 14

post #196 of 2339

Ya... but like the fx700 i felt that they didnt have the separation of a multi-ba iem. Soundstage was great but the opened back made it too audible to those around you.

I know some dynamics can fair better than ba's, but from my experience it wont keep up with the best.

How are these in comparison to something upbeat like the ASG2, or even the H3?

Treble is very impressive.  Has really good sparkle like the FAD V's do and never gets fatiguing.  The whole sound has speaker like presentation and is very lively.  I thought it reminded me of the Sony H3 at the beginning but now it's far from it.  The Sony's are more laid back in sound, these will wake you up and get you moving.  Right now, I'd have to say these rank very high in my universal chain.  

I also have the Heaven V's...How would you compare these two overall?

only few hours with jvc and not burned in....but I had asg2 until last week.....the 850 filled that void nicely.....im not good at comparing but these have comparable sound...maybe more natural or live sounding....im say even on imaging but with more details without the dip in the treble of asg2

Thanks for the comparison to the Atrios! What is the isolation like? The potential venting concerns me, as I will be using them in a noisy atmosphere quite a lot

Good isolation actually..One of the best I have owned..I think it is due to the phones having so many rings and material in the inside of the phones..It does a great job throwing out your music and blocking out external noise..Without music you can still hear your environment but with a bit of music, your completely shut out of whatever is happening..

Thankyou! And finally, what about replacement tips? As they are JPN imports I dont' want to faff around getting ones from JVC over there... is there any good foam tips? I always used the Large futuresonics foams as they were the best for me.

No replacement tips needed because these tips are the best 😎

are these better-sounding than the Hifiman RE-600 ?

But foam tips get mucky and wear out eventually. I prefer the fit and sound from foam rather than silicon so will need replacements eventually! It is very important to  me. I'd love it if Futuresonics tips fit but don't expect they will.

It has foam and silicon tips😎
post #209 of 2339

I know that... but where can I buy replacements if they wear out/get too dirty/i lose them?

Most likely comply
