    JVC HA S650-carbon diaphragm?

    I just got these a couple of days ago. I'm very impressed by both the sound quality and the design/comfort. The case says that they use carbon fiber for both the speaker housing and the diaphragm. I was curious if this is a similar design to the so called carbon fiber nano-tubes I've been...

    Choosing some "nice" cans under $100.

    I would like to buy a nice (at least as nice as you can get <$100) set of cans. I don't really care whether in-ear or over-ear. I mainly listen to instrumental/classical music (ex. ThePianoGuys, Beethoven, Mahler). Right now I am using a pair of Apple earbuds (ick) and I am really getting tired...

    Your Thoughts on a few Portable under-$70 Headphones

    Hello. I've been enjoying my Denon 2000 with rockboxed ipods and a Meier Audio Move amp. Love their sound but.....they're suited for listening from a favored armchair and not at all to take out and about.   I've come up with a list of under $70 portable ones and would like some advise...

    Sennheiser HD218 VS Beats Solo HD?

    Before I offend anyone, I just want everyone to know that I AM NOT a headphone expert. I currently own a pair of Sennheiser HD218 headphones, but my friend recently recommended the Beats Solo HD (which is what he uses). I haven't had a chance to try them out, but he told me that it's truly a...

    Highly portable headphones

    Hi all.  As this forum is slowly draining my expendable funds, I'm growing curious about highly portable headphones, and when I mean portable, I mean on the level of the KSC75 and PX200-II.  Disregarding IEMs and similar, what might be an upgrade beyond the two listed headphones?  Any...

    IEMs ~$20

    I had the MEElectronics A161Ps for a while, but after the cord got screwed up so quickly with only low to moderate use I decided I am not wasting my time with anything more than $20. I just don't listen to them enough to warrant spending that much money to get something that, build quality wise...

    Can cold weather damage headphones?

    Two mornings ago it was like, -6 degrees Fahrenheit here which is rare so even though some of you guys might think that's nothing, it's something for me. Other than freezing my ass off waiting for the bus it wasn't much different. You know, put my headphones on (JVC HA-S400s) listened to music...

    Best headphones that can give the concert experience?

    I own a pair of ATH-M50s and they're alright I suppose. I'm a bit of a bass junky, but it's always been difficult to find headphones that give a good bass without distortion (which I know is asking for a lot after a while from just headphones). Anyway, I recently went to see the band Crystal...

    Good workout headphones for under $20

    The title says most of it.  I don't really care what type of headphones they are, just as long as they can be driven from an ipod.  I'm looking for a pair with reasonable comfort and one that will not slip during the middle of a set and sprints.  I'd also prefer one that emphasizes bass.  I did...

    Want to get a new portable 'phone—or two. Is the HA-S500 or HA-S400 much of an upgrade over the KSC75?

    As the title says, I wish to get a new 'phone or two for portable use. I'll be using them with my Clip+.   ATM my go-to portable 'phone is the KSC75 (not with the clips—clips don't work for me—with Portapros frames) and, while they sound great, they leak lots of sound which makes them...

    Help buying a new pair of headphones? ($40 max)

    I bought a JVC HA-S700 2 years ago and the wire finally died on me. I loved them. Bought them for 30 bucks or so at the time. Now I'm shopping for new headphones similar to those, but I don't want the same headphones again. I liked the fact that they were very flexible (folded in for travel...

    I need a headphone to use 99% of the time at my work. I've a little pain on left ear, so I cannot wear units that tend to pull skin around the ear, such as AKG K512 (I've tried it and returned back to amazon), the ones that gently stays on the ear are much comfy for me.  My requirements...

    Good headphones for smartphone for under 35 bucks?

    I have a htc one, I see the akg 44 9n sake for 19 but I'm guessing smartphones don't have the power to push them properly. What's a good headphone mostly closed to use my smartphone? I was guessing the jvc s400 or s500.

    Difference Between Koss Portapro and JVC S400

    Hi everyone, I have just bought these two headphones to initiate a couple people I know into the world of audio. Since they are gifts, I can't really open them and try them out, so I was wondering what the difference is between them for those of you who have heard both. Then I can figure out...

    Need low budget headphones

      So my friend gave me 30 bucks to buy some headphones. He plans to mostly use them for gaming, but maybe also some music. He listens to all kinds of music so that isn't much of a big deal. I've been looking around, and the JVC HARX700 sounds like the best dead i'm not completely sure though.

    I would love to get some IEM's for noise isolation but have been soured by a very disappointing pair of klipsch IEM's. Horrible sound quality.    I may give IEM's another change with vsonic GR06's, which should provide good isolation and hopefully adequate sound quality.    I have always...
