I like their sound but they are definitely on the polite side. More for longer listening sessions where you don't want to be fatigued from wearing them.

 

They'd look great with a full portable rig strapped to your arm, especially in the airport.

Better yet strapped to your chest.

And why use rubber bands to keep everything together, just wrap the whole thing with a watch and some plastic wires :evil:

It's a well-known fact that most audiophile DAPs don't have a clock, so you might as well strap a watch to them for convenience.

The DN-1000 is breaking in nicely, fellas. I'm on the silver rings and that bass is kicking my A!! Yes! Good deep solid full bass with a good punch, yet it's not obscuring the mids at all. And high-hats are sizzling on some of my favorite jazz tunes. Again, a much fuller sound than the H-200 (and not as warm).

This and the DN-1000 ..... yes!

A while back i posted about a completly under the radar studio monitor the MX10 from JVC that i had coming in. Well I got them and let them baked alittle with burn in and it is deffinetly a discovery. They only seem to be availible to us headfiers in the US as an import for now for about $200 USD which for what im hearing they probably could charge much more. So here are my quick impressions I used my phone (Galaxy S4) and my PC (both of which are just not doing these cans justice) with mostly 320bitrate MP3s and FLAC i listened to 5 finger death punch Infected mushroom Skrillex Phill Collins G&R just to name a few  the cans i used for reference are the populare and discover thread stable the JVC S400 modded with a semi open cup mod foam baffle insert and memory foam stuffed pads. ~the MX10 utterly destroys them in evey possible way

 

some basic specs

Output sound pressure level 108dB/1mW
Frequency Response 10Hz ~ 28,000 Hz
Impedance 56Ω
Maximum permissible input 1,500 mW (IEC ※)

 

 

The short they are AMAZING just uhhhh i love them lol!

 

 

The long

 

The sound in general: Very musical and engaging but not overly so  just right it seems. Very neutral across the board but a very detailed and natural sound. Very clear and ridiculously revealing. (my source is being torn to bits hardcore and the phones show it) but there still so easy on the ears i just get lost in the music now and not listening to how the phones are sounding.

 

Treble: Sweet extended fast and soft not harsh at all very easy on the ears

 

Mids: liquid smooth or rough completely depending on the recording. VERY transparent and very layered and fast

 

Bass: Rich and detailed. Just enough weight to hear it all but not enough to blow your brains out unless you crank up the volume...then it will. 

 

sound-stage: a good deal bigger than the S400 it feels and very accurate gaming is very precise on all axis its just weird how i know were gun fire is coming from or where teammates are moving and music sounds spaced out a little not just a wall of sound in my head.

 

Imagery: layered and with depth i can easily just pay attention to a particular sound in a song or part of it and just listen to the whole very nice separation.

 

detail: good very good definitely too good. I can see how bad my on board audio is and my phone that once sounded good sounds thin now hile the computer seems veiled i can hear the "jitter" that the comes with a noisy source now and i can tell that these need a much better source to shine but they still sound excellent with what i have.

 

timbre: Very natural. Strikingly real sounding and not at all artificial. Cymbal and drums have a very real sound to them along with every instrument and note. Videos sound natural with definition

 

build: solid and they feel well made the cups are part tough plastic and some kind of metal. The leather band is nice not to firm and not to soft the pads feel cheap though and squishy ill need to get some thicker ones. The drivers have a weird metal housing which is marketed as a sound diffuser(had to dig DEEP into google to get that info). These are not CNT drivers as i once thought but run of the mill material just insaine tunning it seems.

 

comfort: way better that  the S400 the ears get a little hot after along time but that normal with fake leather. The ears do hurt a little after long use since the cups are very shallow i feel the thicker pads will fix this. Not a deal breaker for me though still pretty comfy

Thread Starter 

I did some reading on these JVCs. They are getting rave reviews in Japan. A little unknown monitor headphone not too many know about. They seem to be the real deal as far as sound goes. Which does not surprise me given these are made for serious audio production. It is a shame they went cheap on the padding on these. I think SRH840 pads should do the trick. Good stuff my friend. Unknown headphones go unnoticed until us crazy enthusiasts discover them..These seem to be a nice alternative to Shure and Audio Technica monitor cans. I bet they sound even nicer.

post #15162 of 26790

The pads look awful - do you think there'd be any potential alternatives that'd fit?

 

Otherwise I found some measurements on them - http://en.goldenears.net/16638 - as a <relative> baseline, since there's not a lot of impresions on it.

Quite decent, some roll-off, but quite honestly it looks good enough that it shouldn't matter.

Nice find. Price is a bit high but maybe it'll drop...

post #15163 of 26790

My source isnt really scratching what these things can do ATM but i am getting an HT omega eClaro sound card later this month so i can see what itll do but im deffinetly making some nicer pads on my short list on my SIHTH list lol

post #15164 of 26790

Interesting find. They look kinda like the bastard child of the Sony 7506 and the Shure 440, with the awful M-Audio Q40 pads thrown on them. I wonder if they'll ever (officially) make it to North America.

as they are quite an old model, I doubt they'll get any official release in U.S...
