here is basically how I am feeling. Sadly my post was overlooked, I'm going to guess that others thought that because my post was long and that I was an HS that it was a helping post and not an asking one.
I know many headphones, how they compare is a bit iffy. I want super comfortable one's at $50 about. Right now the XB series are at the top of my list. How about the JVC700's? will they give me the comfort and consumer bass that I want? Would XB700's be a better buy?
Basically, I don't do audiophile listening a lot. As in listening to good material. My PL11's. Earbuds that cost $15 aren't rated high or anyting, but have that warm, consumer sound and bass with a bit of vocals that my mainstream consumer music(eminem,katy perry,lady gaga, lil wayne) is looking for. I only listen to great sounding concerts and other well recorded and mainly oldie tracks..very infrequently. once a week about and get this look on my face
but other than that, I am just rocking around like a consumer. The HFI's just don't rock it. Tey vibrate and while they do have great audiophile bass. their consumer bass levels are nill compared to XB levels that I have heard. even when EQ'd.
So anything similar to XB500/700 with it's comfort at that level, I just am iffy on getting them as i have a bias towards Sony
