Modded mean looking JVC DX 700

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

 

This is from a French website that specializes in

exclusive DX-1000 / DX-700 modifications.

 

Link here

 

Cups are exhanged from pine (stock) to

oak, unit is recabled with an in-house

cryo treated cable. Our modding man

(Pierre) claims that this brings the

DX-700 in-line with it's bigger

brother, the DX-1000.

Heya,

 

The wood is beautiful. But, $1170 EU for the entire compilation. Haha.

 

Very best,

Especially since you can just get the DX1000 for less... 

 

Good looking though (but 420 euro for the cable alone? *snort*)

 JVC-DX700 is another ignored jewel though ~ especially for the basshead with discerning taste,

 

 Would love to score another listen sometime, but the time I heard them (just the once, from an

 international student acquaintance) - they were solid thumping cans.

 

 A D5000 vs DX700 review would be a cracker.

in fact, the guy said on his blog that the dx700s are basically the same headphones as the dx1000s.. with BETTER drivers and a better headbandeek.gif

They look like Sony R10s. 

 

Head band and gimbals looks disappointing though.

I much prefer the dx700 look. the dx1000 looks cheap in comparison, IMHO.

Thank you for interest in my modds,

 

Indeed, DX 700 is another ignored jewel !

They sound exactly like DX 1000, since they have the same drivers, and same ear cups.

Number part is J 47497 for DX 700 drivers and J 47497 for DX 1000 drivers !

You can see that in my blog , just after my Ultrasone édition 10 modd
