$33? It makes me wonder how much it costs to make these....



Most products only cost a fraction of what they're sold for. Once I realized this, I became less willing to throw my money away on status purchases.

I read that the 900's have a bigger soundstage... Is it even worth going through all the trouble or should I just keep my 700's....

I will be using them in my house...

Thanks in advance guys



If you want more bass, less treble and midrange. You will need an EQ for the 900's. Soundstage vs balance,tough choice

The RX900 are pretty amazing for the price - both in sound and build quality. But they are hopelessly outclassed by all of my other headphones. But the cheapest of my other headphones is $300...The RX900 were $60! For that, they really are amazing.



Couldn't agree more.

I recabled mine just because I prefer shorter cables and the RXx00 headphones are fun to take apart and put back together. It really is an impressive piece of engineering as headphone chassis goes. I'm considering buying another pair for a future frankenphone project. Plus, I find the chassis very comfy.

I just love these bang-for-the-buck types of headphones!

Hey guys, I just got mine in a few days ago and I'm pretty much using them whenever I'm at home(when I'm on the computer and even when watching tv)

The thing is that the cushion isn't big enough to stop my ears from pressing phones, and after time it starts to ache a bit.
Does anyone know of a quick fix to prevent this?

I just ordered a pair of 700s from amazon with 3-5 day shipping. Can't wait.

As a headphone noob, hopefully these will keep my wallet shut for about 6 months.

Is anybody driving these with the Xonar Essence STX?

Did what "macdaddy89" had suggested, about calling Newegg.com to see if they give me a on time price match on my RX700's since Buy.com had them for sell for $7.99 less expensive, they gave me a credit back on my CC account. Thanks for the suggestion, I am very happy now. Happy Listening.

I have a similar issue. In my case I figured out that the fabric in the left side was kind of tight and that was pushing against my ear. So to fix that I'm probably going to open it sometime this week and loosen that. I might as well do the felt mod while I'm at it. You might just have big ears, but for me it is just that the fabric is too tight and it won't stay against the inside.

As I side note, I like how easy these phones are to work with. It didn't take much trouble to remove the felt, experiment with stuffing, or resolder loose wires around the drivers. They're quite user-friendly.

FYI Newegg just dropped the price to the same level as Buy.com. I got them to refund me the difference since I ordered mine last week.
