post #9181 of 11259

I notice there's an JVC HAMR77X Headphones (Old Version) and a newer HAMRX77X on amazon... wonder what's the difference.

"Old Version" 
http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HAMR77X-Headphones-Old-Version/dp/B00C1TBYBC/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1392726288&sr=1-2&keywords=ha-mr77x

New: http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HA-MR77X-Xtreme-Xplosives-Headphones/dp/B00F34JP7W/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1392726399&sr=1-1&keywords=ha-mr77x

Maybe the newer has better tuning of the driver perhaps, the old version had a quite amusing comment.

I really think you should look into Digizoid products, if you haven't already. Here is an upcoming product I'm pretty excited about:

That's me. I love the LCD-2. They respond so well to EQ, and the sub-bass is seductive.

I don't think I will give them a try as I already know very well what sound I want and these would have too much bass if already the little brother had way too much already (besides being horribly balanced in the mids & highs and problems with resonance in the lows mids and these 77 are V-shaped which I don't like either, I prefer balanced mids and highs).

I have only pretty much 2 headphones on my interest list that I think could possibly dethrone my Q40 for my preference; the very newly launched Sennheiser HD8 DJ (not yet available in europe) and Perfect Sound Dido D901 (but the creaking noise from the all-metall construct + loose clamp is most likely going to be too much of an annoyance and for $800, not too keen on finding out)

 spent some time with these, highs more prominent, bass tamed a little, mids still recessed. Sound is very in your face highs and bass, like a dj headphone. Upper end clarity has cleared up and is very nice, especially for a 'fun' headphone. Seems to work better with female vocals rather than male. Will absolutely pound with a little amping!

I'd trust this longtime user of the forums more than some Amazon dude.

 

 

His view is about like mine...they absolutely slam and don't suffer the 55's weaknesses.

You are interpreting my post entirely wrong, I brought up the review in the case of strenghtening my idea about the "old version" and new version probably sounds different and the old version probably sounds worse and that's most likely where the difference is as the asthetics are the same. That is the idea why I quoted the amazon review, not to bring the product in a bad light as the "new" version has 3 positive reviews so far and could be a potential good product but I'm not personally enough interested in finding out.

My bad...that review made me cringe. It's gonna get google redirects too. It is one thing on Amazon but another on a respected audio site. I am not owning what that person reviewed. I do own what the other supremus on here gave impressions on.

 

They are cheap. They do slam insanely. The highs are clear. the mids recessed. I only say they hit harder than everything I have heard and sit above Yamaha 500 Pro ,Vmoda 100 and Beats Executive in the SLAM department. I make no claims and never comment on cans I have never amped. These are really cannons...massive battle star galactica looking cannons....but cannons none the less. :)

Holy crap. How much?

I am the target shopper for that:popcorn:

 

Has it been released? I'll go check more but I just saw a promo vid on the site?

 

I am not even finding Digizoid O2  on Amazon.jp or Rakuten...whaaat?:confused:  I just emailed Digizoid.

I was walking around with my over the neck rig and feeling quite pleased. I had Bass, it was amped and all was well. The world was filled with Beats haters but what did they know? I know what i liked and I bought for $300 and was fine with that. 

 

i walked into this building too get an iphone 5 car holder

 

 

I walk into this section...

http://www.edion.com/CSfDispListPage_002/001007008

 

I saw a massive row of headphones and decided to start jacking my amp into some phones.

 

Yamaha 3,4,500 Pro's ( the 500's sounded better than my Studios...I was feeling uncomfortable...but the price for them was over 30,000 yen so..) 

AIAIAI (The biggest ones were not as loud as they looked. Loved the look. It's without impact though)

$1,000.00 Beyer's?? http://www.edion.com/CSfLastGoodsPage_001/127955:eek: Nope....I'm not worthy...the bass....I couldn't get my amp near it.

The Denon's, The AKG, The Sony's

 

I picked up a pair of gaudy Battle Star Gallactica looking cans and was ....sick.....i ....I had experienced the moment that most Beat buyers experience sooner or later. I realized I had in fact been robbed. These ugly things were shooting bass into my ears undistorted and with deep emphasis....

I was wearing a audiophile rig jacked into overpriced cans and I felt really really butt hurt. 

I can't explain the feeling. I own my own school I teach kids and adults everyday I am the one leading and now I was the dumbest dude in the room by far and I knew it. 

I bought em and left.

 

This was the last day I ever touched the Beats. They are now my Girlfriends and she listens to GLEE on Hulu here in Japan. That's what they do.

 

I never felt bad because these cans had the same poor signature as the Beats. I kept amping them until they started to display distortion characteristics. These were louder than my Beats as they took more amp. I had moved on from my butt hurt and decided to make a hobby out of finding the best bass cans I could for around 39,000 (Yamaha 500's or down).

I tried all the "Bassy cans" mentioned on this site and realized this is about volume,impact v.s. _____. The DT 770's are rated highly here but to me sound utterly average. The Momentums, The Sony 500,800 1000's ( I wanted 70mm drivers but it's a sweaty mud pillow. You wanna talk about unrefined bass the Sony 1000 are that to me.)

 

I have access to tons of headphones across three giant electronics chains and the one pair that blew me away. 

 

The bigger brother of my optimus prime transformer looking Battle Star Gallactica cans. They got DJ on em and have swiveling cups. JVC is not gonna get DJ's but the "V" is prominent. The 55's and Beats never had the right side of that V graph. The 77's absolutely slam. I know they are not Audiophile cans and I was never looking for ones. I wanted enormous amounts of ampable Bass that was tight when tuned that way and low and deep when tuned that way and had clear crisp highs. These got that. They hit harder than anything I have heard under $600 bucks. Only the Ultrasone 900's were similar but after going home and using my Cowon on these they hit to a point of causing ear damage after prolonged use. 

 

 

 

The 55's are cheaper alternatives to Beat Studios. That's the target. $300 bucks for...noise canceling? Cannot be for the Bass hit...from cans with a HipHop producers name on em? Nah...They got me and a tens of thousands of others but I learned. Beats do suck. The Executives are actually a nice set but I'm done with the brand.

The 77's made by JVC are harder hitting than the 55's which were the same as the Beat Studios..a bit more. The 77's hit harder and sound better than Yamaha's Pro 500's which i like but they do not hit as hard as the 77's.

 

 

I didn't buy these things and come on here thinking I'm an audiophile.....I walked into a giant audio chain and thought I was one and realized I am not. I am a fool that got robbed. Money may equate to quality in reference monitors but in the Beats/V-Moda world money DOES NOT translate to quality. 

 

I just PM'd the Supremus HiFi'er who did a mini review on these to see how he was feeling? He loves em. They are fun. problems with Male vocals (recessed mids) 

 

For 100 bucks? nothing hits harder. $200...nothing hits harder $300? $400 $500? I can only go with what i have heard and the Yamaha Pro 500's V-Moda 100, Beats Executive and Denon D600, are comparable in sheer impact but still not as much.

 

It makes no sense? The price? I don't know what to tell you.

Hey man, if you're happy, that's cool. I just feel it a bit odd, y'know? 

 

That said, that first pic? Super badass, LOL. 

 

Also, the Solo HDs are... man, they are not a great headphone.

That odd feeling....I get it...mine came when I realized Beats/Monster/Dr Dre had robbed me.

Those are the Studios. They look small but they are over ear studios.

 

I was almost sick when I realized either

 

A)The industry had caught up and passed Beats via consumer stimulation

or

B) I was just a moron

 

I think it's a little of both but a fool and his money are not as easily parted the 2nd time around. I take notes and do lots of comparative testing. Heavy hitting Bass tracks like the one in my sig. These ugly beasts (77's) really do send off some thunderous Bass and the highs are there. the mids need eq but the Bass is worth the price and I am back on firm ground. Waiting for a step up in driver quality and sound texture. This has more bass than anybody needs so that is done. I want this bass with silky mids and crystal clear highs. I have never heard a can with this power and those reference qualities combined but I can wait.

 

That top pic...I'm in Japan and the 7-11 staff were very uncomfortable with me. I hang out with Yakuza (that's me with the toy gun). They know me and when i came in alone with that cowon strapped to an amp and a ridiculous cord connecting them...it was really weird. My girlfriend took that pic to show me ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She said.."You look like a f___ing terrorist ...and THAT looks like a fu___ng bomb for christ sakes...nani kole??"  LOL

 

The kids who bomb into Head-fi  asking for the hardest head banger? Tell em to get the 77x and let em be. They'll grow out of it..I will...hell I still play with toy guns:D 

 

 

(The Yak picks are to show how we play in 7-11's parking lot. These dudes are crazy and I get crazy with them in 7-11's parking. The 7-11 staff might think that's a real gun?..So I walk in alone with what looks like a bomb??? They were scared as hell. I didn't realize how scary it looked.)

Fwiw I heard the pandora vi has better everything almost than the Dido including bass. @iriver for 699


Based on everyone's comments about the COP I am thinking I had a bad pair. The bass was not tight.

Holy crap, EIGHT ohm impedance? You could power these things with static electricity, LOL. Now that's a pair I'd love to test drive.

Really? I had the picture that Pandora would be a lot more balanced why typical audiophiles also seem to like them. The Dido packs a monstrous amount of bass for a headphone at the ~$800 pricepoint, it's at least north of 10dB boost. Then I've also read the prototype they had of Pandora seems to have been bassier than the latest one.
