Picked up a pair of RadioShack AUVIO CH102 "Retro Stereo Headphones" - Page 2

Question about the AUVIO CH102

I'm curious to how you would compare these to the RX700 (bass/mids/highs) which you mentioned in another thread you own.

I purchased the JVC RX700 for about 35 bucks and have been relatively pleased with them. I didn't care for the lack of mids/high so I did the felt removal mod and immediately noticed a pleasant bump in the mids and highs. However, it got rid of the nice subtle boom/rumble of the bass which I enjoyed, even if a little muddy.

Considering I paid so little for the RX700, I was thinking about getting a more bass oriented set of headphones, the Auvio CH102 from RadioShack because of this thread.

I listen to fair amount of bassy techno and would like to know if the AUVIO CH102 can reproduce the deep bass and punch, more so than the RX700.

And for the sake of curiousness, how does sound with classical?

These are on clearance at Radio Shack now. Got a pair today for $14.97, so my kids would have something other than Dad's Headphones to use on the computer. I have to say, they sound completely listenable right out of the box plugged into my stereo system (UK Beatles Blue Album). Worth getting if you need cheap portables with decent sound, esp. at this reduced price. Act fast!

I saw these on the internet years ago and didn't jump on them then and have been regretting it ever since.  Do you know anywhere in all of the internet they sell these? I;ve looked everywhere.  Please send me a link if you find out where that're selling... (or if you ever decide to sell!) I just love the style.
