Trying to describe a harp’s sound with words is so very difficult. That said, I have tried a few Chicagos and found them rather thin and tight-sounding. 85s have been around a lot longer, I tried an 85P once that was outstanding. But you really have to try them side by side to know which YOU prefer. You could line up 6 Chicagos and they would sound quite different from each other, same with 85s. Until you hear these harps for yourself you won’t know for sure what you like, and all our descriptions will mean nothing. And the one you end up liking may not be the one you expected.
