The microHD sound very, very good. However, I am always hesitant to recommend them because I went through two RMAs before getting a working one. QC seems to be a common issue with those micro drivers. That aside, they are bright, punchy, and very detailed.
My favorite bang/buck JVCs are:
HA-FXC50 (build issues aside)
HA-S150 (recently replaced by the Coby CV-185 as my favorite <$20 portable)
HA-M750 Black Series (extremely competent all-around monitors with bass boost)
HA-RX700 (easily worth the money stock, better modded)
HA-DX1 (hugely underrated ~$70 can likely due to two different-sounding versions produced)

Well, I think the RX700 is less boomy and more balanced. Combine that with the fact that the RX700 is cheaper and the RX900 is a miss. Plus it's getting dangerously close to the price of a DX1, which blows both the RXs away.
