    I'm considering both of these cans, mainly for movies. Has anyone heard both and can compare them? Sound, comfort, ear space, etc? I want cans with HUGE ear space. Thanks.

    Does anyone own the JVC RX700 and RX900?

    If so, can anyone confirm that the RX900 has larger and deeper cups, on the inside? I definitely want the one with more ear space. Which one would be better for movies? Thanks.
