JVC harx700 - a poor mans ath-a900!! - Page 8

post #106 of 227
I ordered a pair of these from Buy.com. I couldn't resist to see what the hype all about. For 54.99 shipped what the hell. I have 701 840 and 1001 px 100 and now this one. Wife thinks I have flipped.

Hey guys...

This is actually my first official post here on Head-Fi (first actual post was a F/S question) and after a week of reading a good amount of pages of threads here, I was deciding which cans I wanted to get my feet wet with. I listen to Rock/Hip-Hop/Pop/Reggae/Classical. At first, because of my budget, my list of candidates were: Sony MDR-V6 / Grado SR80 / ATH-M50 / Senn HD438, before finding this thread... and damn I must admit I'm getting pretty excited about these RX700's, especially for the price! I'm definitely gonna order a set this Friday when I get paid. I'll be upgrading from my only set of cans :Senn HD202 played off my iPhone+HTPC, which I thought sounded pretty decent before trying on a pair of MDR-V6's which kinda opened up my "ears" to bigger and better things lol Anyway, I have chosen the RX700's to be the first on my list, I can't wait!

anyone have experience with the ATH-A900's and the RX700's or RX900's? my ath's broke and im lookin to replace them. are they comfortable like the A900's and don't just sit on the middle of your head like some headphones? Good sound in comparison? Thanks.

Hey guys,

So I've had my RX700's for about 2 weeks now, pretty sure past the 100hr mark already, and I have to admit that they are finally flexing their musical muscles! I'm definitely noticing crispier and detailed mids/highs, and the bass is cleaner and tighter like other members here have described. The big soundstage that these cans project is probably what I love most about 'em (where my Sony MDR-V6's were 100% in your face). I purchased these the same day w/ my V6's and after a couple weeks I definitely know which one I'll be keeping and returning.

I just hope I still wanna keep these RX700's after my HD595's get here.

I think you might not keep the RX700 around after getting the sennheisers, unless you're a bass head. I couldn't care less about keeping my RX700 with my HD580 really but I just had a curiosity to try it.
post #112 of 227
I would say I'm a basshead only when I listen to hip-hop/rap. Anyway, for $34 shipped I think they might be worth keeping regardless of how much I like the Senn's... but then again never say never.

I'll keep it around for now but if a friend were to try it out and wanted a pair I'd gladly sell mine

I know that this is a harx700 thread and I haven't read through this thread, but I just wanted to add, that the build qaulity and the comfort of my harx900's are amazing for the price. These feel like $200 phones. I can't speak very intelligently about the sound and I really prefer open phones, but I purchased my modded pair for like $50 from a fellow head-fier a couple months back and I just couldn't be happier. Everytime I look over at my four sets of headphones, I end up smiling the most about my JVC's and I really enjoy wearing/listening to them. I'm sure the harx700's can't be far behind the harx900's in terms of bang for the buck.

I actually ended up getting modded RX700s again after I bought the HD595 and then leaving the RX700 in China. If bass is missing from songs that should have bass, the soul of the music is lost which is why my RX700 to this day gets more listening time than any of my other full sized cans.

Oh yeah, I also have the RX900 pads and headband on my RX700 which is probably why I like it even more.

Although in store auditions really aren't fair at all, I've yet to hear anything that sounds explicitly better than my RX700, only "different". And that's part of the reason why I'm looking more at IEMs. With the reports of people liking these more than really high end cans, and with me not wanting to get into the whole amp-buying process and whatnot, I'm mighty happy with My RX700 for full size stuff till I can go for something I'm absolutely sure will be an upgrade.

I find my SR225 and HD580 more involving for alternative and rock which is what I mainly listen to though I can see the possibility of the RX700 being more suited for hip hop, pop , rap even maybe trance due to the big bass canvasing the sound. I've done every sound mod for the RX700 which includes felt removal , foam stuff inner ear pads and dampening the inner parts of the cups.

How does the RX700 compare with the ATH-M50?
post #119 of 227
I'm really curious about these. Can anyone comment on the performance for genres like Trance, electro, house? I have the SR60 but I find them a bit weak for the genres mentioned.

Where can I get a pair of RX700's online that ships to Canada ?
The cheapest I've seen is Provantage @ $68 shipped . :S
