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

    I have changed the rx900 cable with my goldring dr150 cable for test it and definitely i could perceive improvement in the sound. Now the rx900 doesnt sound too dark like before. There is much more lower mid-range clarity and bass is less boomy. The overall sound is better layered,opend...

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

    I have seen that many of you and me have the problem with the comfort of rx700/rx900. For that there is a very simple and quick solution,i you look carefully at the pads from in front and behind you will notice that there is almost half of thickness from front than behind. so you just need to...

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

    I used to have ath a900 some time ago and i sold them because of there poor mids. The RX900 are better overall sounding than A900.the RX900 has very pleasant presentation. The bass is detailed & punchy with good impact,not boomy at all but it doenst go very deep. the mids are clear and smooth...

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

    the rx900 sounds very expanded & deep with very good separation between the instruments with alot of air. the music seems as if it sounds live in a big room,the instruments sound as if they were around me. I personally would not use it for rock.

    In my humble opinion i must confess that in only 10 hours the sound has changed dramatically,I cannot believe this but they sound really amazing for such low price.

    i hope that the highs will get better,bcause they sound as if you had a blanket between the ears and headphones.

    I have received rx900,i dont know but i am bit disappointed,out of box they sound congested and the highs sounds very poor & with lack of detail . they are quite behind compared to hd600,i will burn-in the rx900 for 100hrs to see if they get better.

    All-around headphone around $100?

    the goldring dr150 is the best sounding headphones under 150 bucks and they are very musical.
  14. kirimaru

    Need suggestion, around 100 bucks~~~

    you should try the goldring dr150,they will eat any headphones under 150 bucks and they sound far better then the senn 595hd.

    guys if you dont hear any sonic diference with the cap mod,it couldbe that your headphones,audio systems arent good enough,or the problem is your "ears". i notice nice improvement in the sound,the sound warmth,cristal clear and detailed,deep bass.there are more things that i cant say with words.

    there is a very easy way to accelerate the burning-in for blackgate. you just have to turn-off the pc, unplug it and turn it on and off for while.do it as many time as you can. i was doing it this trick and i was amazed with results,the sound become more and more clearer,open and detailed...

    yeh,you are right i also experienced similar results in the begining,after one week of burning in it sounded even way better,now it sound very detailed and transparent. you feel that the singer is singing in front of you and the instruments around you. i have to admit,i never heard so detailed...

    oh sorry i forgot to mention that,if you are going to use static paper on the card ,please put a layer of fome on the card first and then the static paper,bcause one side of static paper is conductive.

    sorry,its the first time i am using blackgate,i never had to wait to long for other caps and thats why i am confused. about opamp i am using the ad8599,for me the ad8599 sound more wider soundstage and realistic than the lm4562(in my opinion).
