The NEW JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review) - Page 20

post #287 of 3496

ugh... considering the loss (literally) of my fx700's a while back, these may be calling my name. Just recently acquired a pair of v-moda m-100's as well (with a 30 day return policy from B&H) soooo although I was looking for a full sized set of cans, the fx850's mayyyyyy have to put the cans on hold..

They're definitely quite an improvement over the FX700s IMO. Not tempted to sell them like I usually was with the FX700. I was more so trying to like the FX700 than actually enjoying them when I owned them. Although there were certain aspects that kept me holding onto them as long as I did.

Guys, interested in these woodies.

Coming from Shure 846, is the bass heavier / more prominent than 846?

What about the mids and treble? Hope these woodies are not too dark and recessed in mids.

Thanks

I don't know if the bass is heavier but my pair with sufficient burn in has the perfect amount of bass for the overall sound..Just be prepared for the first time you listen to them. The bass is big on open listen. The sound changes and tightens substantially to how I am hearing them now. No recessed mids. No recessed anything in the sound. It is all forward more like it. Big bold and unquestionably fantastic. Tonality is a touch on the warm but not unnaturally so. No where close to dark.

 

I doubt these FX850s are going to be an upgrade from your SE846s but taken for how they sound. These perform exceptionally well for all types of music I listen to be it metal to blues to jazz..The key here is that these do need a substantial amount of burn in for the sound to refine. Once done. It is one of the best sounds for earphones and my favorite by far..

 

I was using them to pick up my kids today from school and I have to say it sounds infinitely better than my car stereo.  So much so I was wondering just how much car audio upgrades I would need to make in order for the sonics to be on par. Wouldn't be cheap I know that much. These are without a doubt in my mind a "special" phone. It just brings a smile to my face I can have this sound quality where ever I may be and that to me is priceless. Happy listening to everyone that take a risk to try out a new benchmark from JVC. Believe me it is a risk worth taking.

Intercourse, the upper range is more prominent, thumping bass when need be, and treble is presented in a loud but non-sibilant manner.

Very natural, a very out of your head experience overall. Easy to get lost in the details though.

You know I do own the SRH1540 and am very familiar with the Shure house tuning. Shure has them lushious mids and that deep hitting bass.  I think these FX850 will make for a nice natural dynamic alternative sound to the SE846s.. I know these are not gonna top the SE846 in detail but these will give a very nice natural full sound. So I think people that enjoy Shure sound tuning will definitely enjoy the FX850s. 

 

I recently have been on a BA binge before these FX850s the Zero Audio Doppios Dual BAs and the Sony XBA H3s being one of the best hybrid earphones. But to be honest my FX850s have separated themselves from collection..I am considering selling off a lot of it now actually.
