Every now and then, a product comes along that is a shocker, in a good way. This is one.

It's an un-pretentiously quiet item, just another headphone from a Japanese electronics giant trying to have a full line of products, right? NO!

I was in the true custom high-end audio business for a looooong time up until it became too separated from the next tier of gear. That last 1% performance should not cost 10-30 times as much money. One of my favorite record players (my specialty) jumped from $750 to $2500 with an inferior tonearm and motor and I realized I could not justify staying in the business.

I've owned great midrange headphones that qualified at their time as "audiophile on a budget" phones, generally in the $200-300 range, real dollars, starting with AKG 240's, the originals, not the later sloppy versions, Sennheiser 430s, very silky, and even Koss Pro4AAA before that. Later got into Beyer and had several models, including the astonishingly accurate and detailed 880, the lush 990 and the slammin 770, and Grado 225s. They were all great in their way, and for the money, should have been. While not in the performance range of RS1s or other superlux reference phones, they were far better than most speakers at any price range could do, and my hifi's topped out at about a $35,000 system of all handmade stuff before I realized that it was getting silly.

THIS JVC HARX-900 headphone proves that with some care, the first few dollars does the lion's share of the work, and that great value can be brought to the market if you don't waste money on bragging at how good a job you did saving money, only to burn it in ads.

This is a VERY good compromise headphone for the person who can hear, has taste, and a limited budget.

Zero buyer's remorse. Spend the extra $20 and spring for the 900s over the 700s!

When it comes to major purchases, I'm picky and I do my homework. I spent days scouring websites, reviews and forum posts looking for a decent set of headphones that sounded great but wouldn't break the bank. These headphones have earned a lot of praise around the interwebs and I was curious to see if they deserved it. Do they? I think so. Let's break it down.

First off, the reason everyone says these things are big is because they're freakishly, borderline comically, large. You'll get accustomed to them soon enough though. Luckily they're much, much lighter than they look. And they're comfy too. The head pad thing is really soft, as are the earcups. As for fit, I've got a largish head and largish ears that stick out a bit, and they fit just fine. The cups fit comfortably around my ears without being too snug in any way. The headphones stay in place without crushing your ears or skull, which is always a plus. They do get slightly warm after prolonged use, which is normal for around-the-ear headphones, but never uncomfortably so. They seal out and keep in sound well enough. Overall they're comfortable and sturdy, and they look pretty slick to boot.

Subjectively, I really like the way these things sound. They've got a rich, detailed, full, and wide sound that works well with any genre. They sounded great with everything I threw at them: Beethoven, Daft Punk, Andrew Bird, Killers, Kanye, Muse. These things have a good deal of bass that bumps but doesn't overpower the mids or highs.

How did all of the audiophiles miss these? IMO, these are better than the HD280s; better bass, as good midrange, and less shrill highs. The only comprosmise is that isolation isn't as good. However, if you hate the head crushing pressure of many of the Senns, this may be a welcome compromise. Great deal...very comfy.

I've been happy with my Denon AH-D550s for about 2 years now but got tired of bent ears from the binaural pads, and went searching for a set of nice circumaural headphones. These headphones become a bit of an impulse choice after reading over 90 pages worth of forum discussions on various websites on these "budget Audio Technica A900s"($250 headphones) as one forum goer stated. The bass on these cans, even without EQ, is fairly large, however with a little(LITTLE) EQ they can be put well into basshead territory. For some it may be too much but if you listen to music that has a heavy bass rythmn (Jazz,funk,rap,reggae,R&B) then you'll be tapping your toes along with the beat. The highs may not extend as much as i would like but given the price I paid ($60) it is more than adequate and can be fixed with a little EQ or an amp. The mids are surprising well developed for a set of cans in this price range and can be made even better with a few mods. Despite their large size they are surprisingly light and the padding feels just right. Be sure to get them about 10 hours of playtime or "burn-in" as out of the box they sound a bit muddy and recessed.

Also as stated in the heading these cans make excellent guinea pigs for the beginning modder. The size of the headphoens makes it rather easy to put your hand in a see what you are doing(read: modder friendly). There are a number of improvements that can be had and the rather large cup area gives you plenty of room to experiment. Look up RX900 mods on google and you'll get links to more than a few threads on how to mod your RX900s(head-fi has some on the best with photos!)

All in all great headphones for the money( no much if anythign better in the same price bracket) and the perfect candidate for those who want to get thier feet wet with modding. Hope this review helps!
