Will take it apart here and report back. Don't want to pull a Mochill. Lol. I would be pissed if I messed these up. 

 

Actually here it is on this pic

 

 

Looks like it is.. Upgraded cable anyone?

 

Yes, from the picture it looks like an MMCX connector, just would like to confirm with owner if you could use Shure SRH1540 cable on it :)

The reason I asked, I plan to cut one of the cable from Shure SRH1540, since they gave 2 cables, to terminate it with 4 pin XLR for balanced connection.

It would be great if they use the same MMCX connector, so if one day I have FX850, I can try it on my balanced amp :D

Or we can use Shure cable replacement (with MMCX connector) that available on local shops and Amazon.

 

Just checked this website:

http://www3.jvckenwood.com/accessory/headphone/inner/ha-fx850/

 

It is said there that the connector is MMCX, so should be the same as Shure's connector.

 

 adopt a detachable cord with MMCX terminal

My H3 and EX600s come to mind but I did not expect, full sized headphone like sound stage and depth from the get go.

 

The foundation of the sound is one that is musical in approach in that they have this full deep and amazingly wide sound. Now this approach to earphone sound can be done right or wrong but I do believe JVC has pulled some magic out of their hats to make an earphone sound every bit as involving as a full sized can. The sheer space and scope of sound on these earphones are done in a way that I have not heard too many earphones do right. I can tell you, these don't sound like in ear phones. The sound and dynamics equal some of the best sounding full sized cans I have heard. This is quite the accomplishment imo.. 

 

thanks for that review Dsnuts. after hearing your thoughts on how big these sound, i'm pretty much sold on them. if you don't mind, i have a couple of questions please: how do movies and games sound on them? do you know how the soundstage and bass compare to the sennheiser ie 80 or sony xb90?

 

also, could you please tell me a good place to order the fx850? thank you again.

I'd love to add a dynamic to compliment the BAs of my 1964 ears customs. Pretty sure these are exactly what I'm looking for.

Now thr question: Will these come down in price over the next 2-3 months, and by how much would you estimate before settling?

If they were in the $250 region I wouldn't even hesitate, but around $375 is a bit harder to swallow.

Don't worry about price because they are priceless in my heart and short memory of them😢😭
