I thought that sub bass is what you mainly feel and not hear
BTW, should have Z5 in 1-2 days from now. Will be able to compare...

Neither of them is what I'd call "accurate", both have over-emphasised bass and a "v" sound signature but overall I prefer Z5 - bass goes absurdly low, highs are crispier yet a more laid-back sound. FX850 are good though, actually fantastic value for the current price.
Well, Z5 is at a different level, much higher level in everything.
Wider and deeper stage, more air.
Anyway, need to burn them in first to get a clear picture.
It is definitely at a much higher level that H3 cannot compare.
After 100 hrs of burn-in, I found that the highs and micro detail is more refined than my UM Pro 30, which I think it is already excellent.
