Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The only caveat is that since the cable is flat, it can twist around itself quite a bit."
_
"This means that replacement cables will be hard to find for the Sony."
_
"The only potentially significant problem is that these are going to feel like ear plugs and sometimes after a while can get annoying, and you hear every movement of the cord and some times even your own heartbeat during quieter passages."
_
"Higher up on the cable theres a decent y-split that says the model number, HA-FX850, and a cable slider, always a welcome addition."
_
"The cable is understated and takes a while to realize just how good of a cable it is."
_
"You could fix this easily because of the MMCX connectors or by buying an extension cable with phone controls, but you run the risk of changing the sound, perhaps for the worse."

Price

Price:
"The 850's don't have the outstanding mids of the 535's, but they are almost half the price."
_
"Unfortunately, it's somewhat hard to find a good warm source for cheap nowadays as most dacs+amps have moved towards more neutral sound signatures."
_
"Overall an outstanding deal at this price."
_
"And I guess when you consider the price, and how damn comfortable these are."
_
"In any case, these JVCS are well worth the price."
_
"I returned my Bowers and Wilkins C5's to get these and it was well worth the $100 price increase."
_
"It's a good time to buy 850 with low price."

Sound

Sound:
"After all a well-built comfortable headphone with terrible sound might as well be an ear plug right?"
_
"My only complaint is that like the rest of the sound, the treble can sound somewhat thin and sterile, something endemic to BA drivers."
_
"They supply 3 sets of silicon tips of different sizes, which give you great sound, and 2 pairs of foam tips, which give you a horrible, tinny sound."
_
"The universal multi-BA IEM's I've tried so far have never been able achieve such quick-and-rich sound."
_
"The sound of JVC H850 is among the best of what I have so far."
_
"The sound stage is so good that you generate a picture of relative position of each instruments on the stage in your head."
_
"great sound with Sony NW-ZX2 !"
_
"After all a well-built comfortable headphone with terrible sound might as well be an ear plug right?"
_
"No real complaints here other than it sounds a bit thin."

Treble

Treble:
"My only complaint is that like the rest of the sound, the treble can sound somewhat thin and sterile, something endemic to BA drivers."
_
"The bass still is not as competent as the JVC but the treble is definitely better."
_
"Only one complaint, and it's very minor: the treble can be a bit enthusiastic some times... it may be they need to break in for a while; I'll update if this changes and, haha... it won't take me too many days to break these in!"
_
"Id love the treble of the Sony on the JVC but the JVCs treble doesnt really leave me all that wanting."
_
"The Sony has a specialized balanced armature driver that Sony has coined a super-woofer that really does a beautiful job with treble."
_
"The treble is great too; its very bright but has this nice thickness from the wooden timbre that give the vocals life."
_
"The treble on this is just fantastic, it easily beats the JVC here."
_
"These are very v-shaped with VERY prominent treble and bass, but the mids are very nice as well."
