Where to buy JVC HARX700, or alternative

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for these headphones, but I can't find anywhere that has them under $40 with shipping. You used to be able to buy them on buy.com for $35, but their out of stock, I guess. An alternate might be good. Also is this mic good? Is the Sennheiser 201 or 202 better, or are they close? The 201 is on sale, I'm gonna buy one of these as secondary headphones.

I currently own both, as well as the the HARX700, and I find the build quality on the 202 to be slightly better, but you wont find terribly good craftsmanship on either the 201 or 202.

The 201 are essentially more musical; the highs and mids are much crisper than the 202. The 202 are DJ headphones, so it has better bass response which is good for gaming and listening to hip/hop. The bass does get kind of muddy and boomy.

As far as comfort goes, I like the 201's very much. I have big ears and the 201s fit around them very well.

Distortion at high volume is a problem with both these headphones, but for the buck, they cannot be beat, especially that the HARX is sold out everywhere!
I recommend a pair of 201s. For 15 dollars, they are worth every penny.
