Entry Level Headphones: JVC HA - RX 300

I have been asked by some friends about what would be a good pair of entry level full sized headphones to consider. So today I wish to talk about my JVC (Japan Victor Company) HA - RX 300 full sized dynamic earphones. I have not seen much talk about these headphones, but they are worth a mention as they are light weight, well designed and exhibit a very good bass and mid range response, upper ranges does not stand out and glare. These headphones are easy on the ears and are great for general easy listening.

These are definitely a pair of cans for those starting at entry level at around US$18.00 on the web, the design and looks are good and the sound is definitely a 4.3 rating out of 5 for a pair of low priced range cans. A difficult act to beat.

So what are the disadvantages, there is slight coloration in the middle and lower registers (I would expect this as normal for cans in this price range), but hey remember we are talking about a pair of great looking entry level cans for the starter at under US$20.00 who wants something sleek, good looking easy to use and great for general music listening.
