This is how carbon drivers sound like..Dark vs Bright for the nanotube variety. I also know JVC does not burn in anything they sell so these drivers are about as raw as it gets. So I did get my pair and they look nice, feel nice, are a touch smaller than the HA-S600. As they are mostly on ears for me. The sound is dark, dank n warm. Not open at all. has a veil over the mids. Has some big bass and loose to boot, much like the HA-S600. Overall a dark sound and sloppy big bass with not much to like in the sound.
This being said, as crazy as this sounds. I do hear some potential. My HA-M750 sounded very similar to these on open box as well and those turned out for the much better with a long burn in..As they are on open box I can't recommend these to your worst nephews. However. I think I am going to keep mines and blast them carbon drivers until the veil is gone and may try some modding.
The bass is strong with this one Luke! So far they sound like cheapo $30 cans. If at that. Lol.. The only positive in the sound. For a closed smallish on ears the stage is not bad..Needs a lot of work however..I got it on the burn in. Will report back with any changes and I do expect this sound to open up. We will see.
If the mids clean up and bass tightens the treble has a thicker rich tonality to it which I kinda like. These could sound pretty good.. Is what I am projecting with burn in. I hope.
