Never been but I wish. Then again I better not wish that since the shops would take all my money.

Ahh it's not very fancy but good enough for an amateur like me. Hope I can snap some good pics like you do.

How very true. And what's scary is most of the money won't go to audio gear. It'll be the food that gets you. Soba, Ramen, sashimi, takoyakis, sweets and so so so much more. Mochi, green tea and a warm foot soak at the foot of Mt Fuji? Heaven

Oh man that sounds awesome. Who needs audio gear when you can take in all that. Of course, Japanese ladies too.

Hahah. Tru dat. Now imagine your favourite portable setup(with the FX850's maybe?) and favourite tracks, to that little scenario, alone or with company, doesnt really matter, followed by a slow trek around the nearby forest paths, streams and shrines..... Oh god, I need to find some time to head back there.

Where? :ph34r:

 

And what sony cam are you guys speaking of? 

 

My interest, surprisingly, is now picqued at a camera that's not pentax, and a camera that would probably cost as much as these fx850s. :D

 

You guys take such good pics, it makes me somewhat jelly really. :normal_smile :

Sony NEX-3. Found a really good deal on Amazon Jp. with an extra lens included. When I received it, the menu was all in Japanese, lol.

hahaha, it is simultaneously hilarious and awesome!

 

Ahh, that is a wonderful deal, the NEX cameras rock it in IQ and functionality! Count yourself gifted for attaining a good camera. :)

 

Looks like amazon jp should be the highly regarded place for some good deals if the US doesn't have any for other appliances.

 

Except for that japanese menu part, lol! If you do ever go to Japan, please share your story, it'd be pretty amazing if one of our friends visited the wonderful places out there, like akihibara for those nice electronics, and takayama to know a bit more about Jap's history in person. :biggrin:

Hi everyone, I've received my FX850s about a week ago and it has about 100 hrs of burn-in.  I am loving the BIG sound from these amazing IEMs...  Nice warm and smooth sound too.

 

At about the same time, I also got my hands on a pair of Rhapsodio Reference Titanium One (RTi1 for short) IEMs.  I got the FX850s because they were touted to have excellent timbre (and they are good in that respect), but I just want to share that I find myself reaching for the RTi1s for classical and instrumental performances because the timbre is even better.  The latter is more pricey though.

 

I find that they compliment each other nicely; together with my ATH-IM03, I should be good on the IEM-front for a good while.

 

Happy listening!

And the im-03 compared to these two IS?!?!?!

 

 

Nice reference, too bad it is too pricey for the rhapsodio, but it is awesome to know there's another iem with better timbre! Just not at a wallet friendly level...

 

enjoy them :)

@vlenbo, the IM03 is more neutral as compared to the FX850s, as in agreement with what a few other Head-fi'ers told me before I ordered the FX850s.  So there is a difference in sound signature.  The IM03 doesn't have as big a soundstage as the JVC, but it is still good width and depth in general.  I also find that it has good timbre (about the same as FX850s) too and is very forgiving while being accurate.  In my comments on the RTi1s, I mentioned that the sound of cellos may be a little too emphasized with the FX850s, and this is not the case with the RTi1s and IM03.

 

I have to commend the IM03 (and IM04) for producing DD-type bass -- detailed, low, and impactful, even in the subbass region. 

 

I have no regrets getting any of these IEMs and will not get rid of them anytime soon. :L3000:

What kind of music would you choose IM03 over the FX850?

Since for classical and instrumental performances RTi1 takes the cake

post #433 of 1725

I find that the IM03 presents music in a way that is more like pair of speakers placed in front (i.e., out-of-the-head experience), while the FX850 are more intimate and envelops the listener. 

 

Personally, they both are versatile and capable in many music genres; I have no issues using them for what I listen to (which is 80% classical and instrumental, 10% pop, 10% jazz).  It really boils down to my mood at that time, whether I feel like a more accurate and out-of-the-head experience (i.e., IM03) or intimate and warm presentation (i.e., FX850).

 

Sorry I can't be of much help here with regards to genres as my listening tastes may be rather restricted as compared to many other members.

You're welcome; glad to be of help...

 

By the way, did I mention that the bass quantity (quality aside) of the RTi1 is in the middle ground between the FX850 and the IM03?  FX850 and IM03 represent the upper and lower limit of my preferred bass quantity, respectively, so the RTi1 is really just nice for me.
