great! one good find at last!
the fact that you havent tear them appart and remover parts is a good sign :O
lol That is a good sign, isn't it? They even have the cloth over the driver but if you take off the pads you'll see the lens is VERY open. So for once the cloth actually seems to serve a purpose – without it I think these phones would be excessively bright.
But hey, just 'cause the jWIN's need, yes NEED the cloth removed doesn't make them a bad phone IMO. I'll post exactly how to remove the cloth in another thread… I think I'll call it my "Monkey Mod" because it's so easy even the dumbest monkey could do it.
James, Olimoronio, I followed your suggestions and ordered the HQ-1600 today. I was in the market for good headphones under $50, and these are on sale right now. Hopefully they would live up to my expectations after reading your posts. If not, they will just end up in the FS forum.
I will post my impressions as soon as I can.
If you're looking for something along the lines of what I posted above then I highly doubt that you'll be disappointed.
WARNING: If you think the JVC RX*** series is all that and a bag of chips then you may just hate these phones. lol
I was going to say go for it but I think your pads are much too small. The pads on the Creative's are 5-3/4" W x 7" H.
The pads on the Maxell DHP ii's are just slightly too small but I'm going to try them anyways because they are just so darn soft and supple.
I tried to resist the urge to buy more headphones, but I couldn't do it. I returned my SRH-840 since I couldn't deal with the pain of them on my head.
I ordered the Denon AH-D1100 since they've dropped down to a somewhat decent price. They're no longer $199!
I'm a bit worried they're be too much of a bass monster, but maybe as long as it's somewhat controlled, i'll be OK. I'm hoping the mids will be better than the DT-990 or M50's mids.
I found the mids on my amped D2000 to be just fine for me, so I'm only the mids are not too much worse. I couldn't tolerate the mids of the 250 ohm DT-990.
I wanted to buy the AH-A100, but I'd be feeling guilty about buying such an expensive (secondary) headphone for about...a month. They're $500 and I'm not sure how long they'll be for sale.
In this economy it's hard to want to buy a $500 headphone and I'm not exactly rich.
My KRK KNS-8400 is perfectly fine for what I want right now, but it's still going to be nice to have an unamped bass heavy headphone around.
Strangely, I still find my DJ100 the most fun headphone to listen to. Even more than my k601. Really annoying being tied down to an amp for something I want to be more portable. Oh well.
I couldn't resist it either. I ordered the Pioneer SE-MJ2 (meant to get the MJ3's, dangit! Oh well... I guess I can live with plastic instead of REAL METAL! *grumble*) and another pair that's... a surprise!
