Amazon Japan through Tenso forwarding is what most guys use. Currently the cheapest price. Well worth the price they are asking for them however..

Not just for the bass as it gets tighter and much more refined but the rest of the sound signature as well.. Much more detailed and that treble becomes amazing. You guys have to remember these have brand new silver coated OFC cables that come with them.. Burn them in..It will change how these sound to a much more refined version..

 

I tested my tracks for microdetails before and after burn in and you guys would be shocked at how much more detail these phones pick up after some time on the burner..

 

They are indeed bass heavy but very much in line with the treble and mids. The FX700s were much worse IMO. The FX700s were suitable for nothing more than low volume listening. With the 850s you can easily listen at medium to slightly above average volume levels without issue.

 

Edit: I'm noticing these IEMS really sing on tracks with good dynamic range :).

Are these great for metal and 80s music? I need something that has fast hitting bass that sounds clear and solid and not muddy.

And how do they compare with the at im03? I need to sell some stuff but want to order them now and worry about selling stuff off later.

As I mentioned earlier they do really well on music with high dynamic range. Meaning if you bought CDs generally before 1995 and below the CDs for the most part have good dynamic range. 80s music sounds really good on them. They are not bad at all for all-arounders.
