Well, I just bought some JVC HA-RX700's for 36.99$ shipped from amazon, I guess its a good deal, as they seem to be rated amazing everywhere I look.

I listen to my music (Primarily rap) on some cheap logitech z313 speakers, so it should be an improvement. And I owned a couple pairs of skullcandy headphones years ago, all of them have broken, same goes for every earphones I have owned, sony, skullcandy, and atomic bass (loved those)

So are these good, for rap also?

I have a set that I use specifically for gaming, but I believe my Beyer DT770's are about to replace them. They were also 5x the price.

They are decent for music actually. One of the best quality and sounding full-sized cans you'll find below $50.

So I am guessing it is a pretty good choice, as I have only really seen these compared to headphones that cost at least 2 times more. I understand these headphones need broken in, so I will just leave them playing music all night the first day I get them.

I wont have any problems with them not having enough bass will I? I dont care much about head shaking bass because I get migraines and I had trittons that shook hard and they gave me migraines. But I still care about bass, as I listen to rap.

Bought some Logitech G930's at Best Buy today for $20. Not sure how they compare to your fancy pants cans, but they BLOW my old Plantronics out of the water! First time I've ever heard music this loud without crackling and speakers cutting out. Now to make sure I don't blow out my eardrums...

It'll be adequate enough. It's not head shaking bass, that's for sure, but it's a pretty even sound across the spectrums. If I remember correctly, the mids are more prominent than most. Luckily I'm home, so I'll give a quick listen tonight for you and let you know. It's been quite a while since I've put them to use.

I'm more of a speaker person but i still love my AKG K-240 very much. Looking to add a pair of K701 to the setup in the future, maybe this christmas. thumb.gif

Couldn't find any better picture and couldn't find the camera!? So it's a bit old.



My custom cables I made for them when to stock cable lost the left signal.

A lot of people on here instantly resort to this schema that all gaming headsets, or find disgust the moment they hear Logitech, except for some name brand creations, are garbage. The G35/G930s are actually pretty decent for their price. That is if you turn off the DD effects. When they are strictly in stereo mode, they are actually fairly decent compared to the competition.

Have you changed out the padding on those? There isn't much difference between the stock pads and the other ones that come with the MKII version, but in some minor areas, I notice there is a difference. It's like the sound separation is nicer. (I have the same headphones btw).

Nice cabling. It's unique.

Funny how we have the same headphones and looking to be upgrading to essentially the same ones near Christmas (I'm going with the Q701s, though).

By my understanding, that is "effective" impedance (considering the end result of the entire circuit). In a simple circuit, sure, in a complex, parallel, multi/dynamic driver one, not exactly linear like that. That's my understanding at least.

Ah yes, forgot about that doh.gif Have changed the pads to the velour pads since the leather type stock pads started to dry out and loosing parts of it. I've tried the MKII and thoos pads are much better then the pads of the studio version but i still thinks the velour pads are much better, especially during long time use.

Thanks, yeah always nice to have some unique and it feels extra good when you know you've made it yourself. smile.gif

I have looked at the Q701's as well, but the difference in price is pretty big in sweden. The K701 are 270$US and the Q701 are 390$US, so it's bit of difference and i don't know if it's worth that extra 120$. And i really like the look of the K701. blushsmiley.gif
