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.
