JVC HA-RX700 - a legend in its own right

Posted

Pros: Superb sound quality, great comfort, great price

Cons: Some creaking noise, not for portable use, needs long burn-in for best sound

First and foremost, this is not an expert review. You may call it amateur if you please. But it's more of an owner appreciating his gear and sharing his thoughts and opinions about it.   After reading multiple reviews, mostly here in head-fi, I've decided to purchase the JVC HA-RX700. It struck me as a hidden gem since it has been compared multiple times to headphones several times more expensive. I bought it for $30+ in B&H and had it shipped here in the Philippines. We don't have that model here so it's safe to say that I was not able to test it before buying. Aside from reviews, my other basis for buying is I always loved the JVC sound. We had a component system before and...

Muddy and no details. There are better choices for the same price.

Pros: Cable on single side. Nice build quality. Good noice isolation.

Cons: Mids muddy, lacking lower highs. Heavy.

My  Panasonic RP-HTF600E has broken and i wanted to replace them.   After reading numerous reviews about these JVC RX700, i decided to give a try. And... i was very dissapointed. Sound is muddy, because of lacking upper middles. Sound details are lost in bass...  They can't stand close to panasonics HTF600 in detail and bass controling.   Things didn't get better even after 60 hours burnout.   Cannot listen music with them now - decided to "glue and tape" old Panasonic cans.   Only good thing these JVC cans have - good outside noise isolation.

Absolutely amazing headphones for the price

Posted

Pros: bass, comfortable, great value, great entry headphones

Cons: really big

Me: music lover, budget audiophile These are my second pair of grown up headphones. The first were Bose( I know) triport over ear headphones laptop>fiio e7>JVC HA-RX700 I was looking for some over-ear, closed headphones under $50 and after reading tons of great reviews on these, I decided to purchase them even though they are semi-open. Like others will say, you can't have a pair of headphones that is perfect for everything. These work great for many types of types of music but the kind that shines the most is EDM! The bass isn't overwhelming, the highs and mids sound great. They sound great out of the box and even better with an amp. Even better after burn in!  Get...

Pros: decent sound, durable.

Cons: hUUUge!

  I am a pro-sumer not an audiophile, so I will not speak to the sound as much as others have. I am not affiliated with the music industry in any way. I have a full head of hair, no glasses, no TMJ, normal hearing.   As many others, I bought these based on the many positive reviews found elsewhere. (At the time of this writing there are no reviews here on head-fi for this product.) That and the fact that my wife was sick of having to turn off the lights to get my attention while listening to closed cans.   Pulling these out of the box you understand why people say these are big. They are mammoth. On my small-headed wife they look absolutely ridiculous. Even...
