You absolutely did not waste $40 on the JVC Rx700s. Those are some amazing phones .Very crisp and balanced headphone. They are mammoth in size though. I prefer them more than the Panasonics for most genres with the exception of electronic/bass type music. Do not return those JVCs..With 20hrs burn in..prepare to be amazed.
Well, I got them today..I have about 5 hours into them..Everything from Old school Trinere..to 10,000 Maniac..to Tori Amos..To Metallica(Justice and before) Soundgarden, ect
They sound much better than out of the box at this point..On the Fiio E6 if I use the flat EQ they really do sound much better than the Panasonic. They just lack the bass the Panasonics have but they are much more balanced..Things I could barely hear on the Pans are very present on the JVC..
But I can find no better term to describe the Pans than a lot of ppl here--They are just FUN---I put them on a few days ago and couldn't take 'em off..lol
I think I'm going to keep them..If I didn't hear the Pans..these would be exactly what i was hoping they would be..Sometimes I just want it to rattle my teeth..and the Pans come close..
I could always send these back to Amazon--They now have it were as soon as it is scanned to be delivered back.they refund..then once back if there are problems they take their $$ back..But if everything is what you say it is..all is good. For good measure I'll return as "does not work properly" which in my head means doesn't reproduce the Bass as well as the Pans..
I see no reason to return them..$40 shipped was worth it for these HPs
