    My First Cans: RX900 or SRH840

      Quote:   Your suggestion helped much more than you know! Thank you nobleacuff.    I'm really liking the idea of the HD202s. Not because I think they'd be comparable to either the JVCs or the Shures, and not because I think they'd be a good fit in terms of diversity of function...

    My First Cans: RX900 or SRH840

    Quote: Haha, well I found my Bx5as to be pretty breathtaking myself! We shall see though.   Btw--just curious--what were your first pair of headphones?

    My First Cans: RX900 or SRH840

      Quote: Yeah one of the things I really like about the Shures is how great they sound unamped (according to the many reviews I've read). I imagine the extra $65 is definitely worthwhile... hmm...   Quote: It would just be occasional portable use, and because I don't want to...

    My First Cans: RX900 or SRH840

    Hi everyone.   I've spent the last week or so looking for a set of cans to bring to college this fall.    I've never really been a "headphone guy," as I much prefer listening to speakers (I have a pair of M-Audio Bx5as that I enjoy very much, and plan to take with me to college)...

    JVC RX700 back in stock!

    Hm, I think it's decided then.   I kinda ruled out the A700s, seeing as this purchase will be my first real set of cans (I much prefer speakers) and I fear that I may not take full advantage of them--at least not enough to drop $100. I can always upgrade later.    I guess the cable isn't...

    JVC RX700 back in stock!

    Haha yeah, I asked an Amazon sales rep about whether that "1-2 months" was a mistake and was told that they would, in fact, take 1-2 months to ship. She said I'd receive them between August 24th and September 24th. What an amazing deal! /sarcasm So now I'm pretty dead set on the RX900s. The...

    Headphonia USB DAC Cable

    I like that it's 1/3 the price of a devilsound.

    Need DAC for Audioengine A5 - No Amp Required.

    Perhaps I should have used the word "underperforming."   The uDac is self-powered via USB. That there is a sign that you're probably not getting the best output in terms of SQ, especially for your A5s--I don't mean that you wont be getting enough wattage. As far as portability goes, it's a...

    JVC RX900: Sound Leakage?

    I've never really used headphones before... These would be my first pair. I much prefer speakers. I bought a pair of Bx5as for my dorm, and I'll be enjoying these most of the time.   The headphones are intended for late at night when I cannot use my speakers because my roommate is...

    JVC HAR-X700 and 900. Two of the best dynamics? Am I nuts?

    RX700s R.I.P.   They appear to have been discontinued.   The RX900s have not, however.   I guess that makes my decision a bit easier... Still curious about leakage from the "semi-open" 900s... How is it? Much worse than the 700s? Noticeable? Suitable for a dorm setting? Library? etc.

    JVC RX900: Sound Leakage?

    I'm thinking about buying a pair of JVC's RX900 headphones off Amazon.  Originally I wanted a pair of the RX700s, but they've been discontinued  and are near impossible to find online for a good price--at the moment, the RX900s are only $10 more and seem to be worth it (because of the softer...
