for example the audeze lcd2 has good clamping force so that it does not matter where the headband is positioned

 

thanks for answering,

can someone comment on this please

When l first got the JVCs it surprised me the great clamping force they exert. Then, it surprised me even more that it didn't bother me, at all (the Audezes, on the contrary, could be a bit 'too clamping'; at least when brand new). Then, l was also surprised because the headband would not touch the top of my head, due to the clamping force: basically, the JVCs didn't seat on my head, but stayed there due to the clamping force exerted against my ears. Again, nothing to worry about, at all.

 

Regarding your question, l took a picture to show you (which is much easier than explaining with words). Following the position of the HPs on the picture, if l were to move them 1cm more backwards, then they would fall right away (keep in mind every skull is different). In the position you can see on the picture, you shouldn't have a problem.

 

Only problem l see is the earpads shape (the inside is an oval, not a circle). Now, l know you could rotate them so that they match that 'unnatural position' (so to say) you're willing to set the HPs on your head. l haven't tried to rotate mine, but recently, l tried an used pair, and l remember l was rotating the earpads to make them match the angle of my ears, easily. 

 

If the clamping force were your only concern preventing you to buy the JVCs, l'd not worry much about it (unless you really want to position the HPs on the back of your head). 

 

Oh, one last thing: l have the headband extended a lot (as you can see in the picture) so that it does not touch my skull. Perhaps, regulating it in a different position (tighter) the fit would exert more pressure on the back of a head (thus, allowing you to position the HPs further back). This is just a guess, l did not try it. 

 

The picture is awful (mobile quality, 'selfie style'), but illustrative. No problems in that position. 

 

 

This one is more 'professional' :D

thanks so much, i was wondering if u tighten the headband more can u move the headband further to the back as sometimes i put the headband with my audeze even further than what i have in that picture, i think i have the same size of ur skull

They've been burning in right now with my "IsoTek - Full System Enhancer & Rejuvenation Disc". All I can say that right out of the box, fresh, well, they were not as convincing as I expected regarding bass impact and general sound. In the last 2 weeks or so I was on my HD25 and they deliver more/punchier bass. So yes, they seemed a lil bit bass shy right out of the box from my foobar -> O2/ODAC. (But the bass is superior compared to the HD-800 already). The whole sound coming out is like not refined/coherent to me...Will try again after a 100 hours of burning-in though!

 

Also, the comfort level is not even close to the HD-800, which I got used to before. But the soundstage is SURPRISINLGY wide, kinda close (but not reaching it) to the Sennheiser flagship - when you get the right fit, which took me some time. Not like the HD-800 where you just put the phones on and you're good to go. But once you get the fit right, they sound much better. The wooden cups are just plain beautiful, and the whole device looks just breathtaking, however rather BIG, haha. Like two hamburgers hanging from your ears. The cable is 3.5 meter long and permanently fixed to the cups so I have to try befriend the idea of having that long of a cable around during listening.

 

Overall I think we will be really good friends b/c the soundstage is amazing (keep in mind, I've had the HD-800 twice!) and the bass is already better to my ears. I'm pretty sure they will further improve upon burning-in. People commented on the DX series that their highs are rolled off somewhat (If I remember correctly). Well, I guess it is me and my overly sensitive ears but to me the DX-700 got the highs just right (perhaps thanks to the O2/ODAC). I didn't have those ringing ears after my first listening which I experienced so many times with my HD-800. /Especially the first one I had, with the stock calble/.

 

As for the weight, they are pretty much like the HD-800. 380 grams, that's fairly ok to me though I can't comment on how they feel on longer listening sessions.

 

Finally, I would like to underline that I don't feel myself competent enough to properly review these beauties. What you have read here were merely the first impressions of a peson who only had a couple of really cool headphones in his possession before.

 

So more on the DX-700 later. Overall, they are a pair of heaphones I am proud to have. Now I really feel the need to get the JVC headphone stand b/c they are simply so beautiful. Elegance, that's the first thing coming to my mind when I look at them.

Those cups are not the original ones, right? You got the DX-1000 or DX-700?

other than that, they look really cool to me!!

Remember what l told you? Don't judge them now, just let them be for a while (especially coming from HD-800). l'd say, they'll gain you over before you even realise ;-) :popcorn:

Yeah buddy! I remember all right! So they have been burning in for nearly a day now and I couldn't resist and I put them on again for another quick test with the few same songs...and the soundstage is the one thing that wowed me at once. I'm not sure if I should say anything about the sound in general but it feels different than what it was y'day I can confidently say that. There's some change for the better to my ears. Anyhow, I will let them burn-in for another few days and we'll see.

 

Putting them on again on my bigger than average size head makes them feel, yet again, somewhat awkward but I feel I will get used to them. And they are by no means uncomfortable but I'm in the (un?)fortunate situation that I had the possibly most comfortable headphones on my head for long time before (HD-800). One more thing: Now as I have found the proper fit, I can even (lightly) headbang they are so securely fit on my head which is great news as I couldn't do that with the HD-800.

 

One thing I forgot to mention the last time: These headphones are SUPER easy to drive. No surprise here -> (64Ohms & 101dB/mW) Right out from the laptop they sound just loud enough but when I attach my O2/ODAC I can certainly notice the difference. But had I not possess the O2/ODAC they would still immensely wow me.
