Default cheap but impressive cans

I picked up a pair of JVC HA-RX500 cans to take on vacation so I wouldn't mess up my everyday ones with wet head or travel abuse. Got them for $15 at a local Frys (on sale). They are comfortable for me. decent isolation, clamping isnt too harsh. sound is good. they have some bass presence (but what doesnt with a J3?) and dont really do anything terribly. nothing stellar either, but for $15 I am good with not sound atrocious and being comfortable. I highly recommend for $15 and wouldnt oppose at the regular $30 tage. the rx300 at $20 is probably a better value at MSRP though. I got those first and they were OK but the voices all seemed to have almost a slight echo. could have been fit related because these have angled drivers and earpads.

I have the RX300 and they have very little bass response and have very reassessed everything lol. I have read a lot about the 500/900s on headfi as they were a pretty popular fotm mod set of cans and apparently they are quite good for the price.

The JVC RX 700 is quite rated as budget cans. Probably the best of that series. I nearly got one as well.

I've had the HA-S160-B headphones for a few weeks now, they're the best ones I've ever had by far and I've had a lot different brands (Insignia, Phillips, Sony, Bose, etc.). I was amazed by them because they have clearest rich sound and perfect bass to only be $20.
