The NEW JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review) - Page 39

post #571 of 3470

My 750 just processed on Tenso and just waiting for it to ship out, getting impatient. :p

post #572 of 3470

Can somebody post a photo of his FX850 in his EARs so i can see how they are sticking out. Front one would be more informative .750 would be nice also . I just cant decide between them .The fit is inportant and i just want to see how 850 is looking in real life usage )

 

 

Thx

Well the 850 is obviously better, and I'm pretty sure they're nearly the exact same exterior except for color.

My question is are the FX750 better than the triple fi 10?

Edit: also, two photos, one for around the ear, other for wearing them like normal earphones.

Slightly off topic, but I'm flying to Japan on Saturday and I'm looking to pick up a pair of FX850's (and also maybe the FX750's to compare them!). Does anyone know of any good shops in Tokyo for IEM's? Or would I be better off just buying them for amazon.jp and getting them sent to my hotel?

 

 

 

I'm not sure if I get the VAT off if I buy them in a highstreet store...

 

 

 

Many thanks!

if you have the time take a train to akihabara. then visit yodobashi. its a super big departmental store that sells EVERYTHING. then head to 4th floor and have a treat to yourself-entire floor of speakers, headphones, diy cables, drivers etc. you can try all of them!! try to get a unionpay credit card, you get vat and addition percentage off. (i remember was 10% off if payment by union pay w passport). you can also try shopping around but i think prices are pretty similar. there are anothe few audio shops that specialise in iems headphones in the street but sorry i can remember the street name.(though i can roughly remember how to walk there from akihabara station . ) but prices is similar to big departmental stores.

 

do plan a bit more time...i usually spent about 4-5 hrs there:gs1000smile: if you have the time pls do a quick comparison between 850 and AT im70. am using im70 now and looking to get the 850 but dunno if worth it. thanks

In addition to what surge suggested, please...

 

PLEASE tell us how the sound of the latest released ath-ckr9 and ckr10 earphones sound like! They may sound pretty good for the price, and hopefully can compete with these fx750s + fx850s.

Wow - congrats!

 

I'd love to snag them, but the $380CN (shipped) price tag is fairly serious. If/when they come down a bit in price, I'm there!

This.

 

I hope someone can compare the FX750 to the Triple Fi 10. I'd be willing to settle for them since they're $150 less than the fx850 on amazon.

Too bad I'm male. Anyway, doesn't need to look good as I'm more concern if I could get a fit. Thanks for the kind words and those 850 will definitely steal the spotlight in the look department.

If only we had snagged them during that ¥28k Sale huh? wink.gif

I have the Geekout, along with a few albums incoming too. Next week should be total audio bliss 😍
