As my wife and 'tween-ager are virtual Bermuda Triangles for ear buds, they eventually lose/break all theirs and subsequently borrow mine with the same outcome. Thus I recently found I needed to buy three new sets of ear buds at once. I bought three different sets off Amazon, all having decent reviews: JVC HAFX67R, JVC Xtreme Xplosives, and JLab Audio JBuds J2. Today I sat down to compare them all side-by-side. In the interim, a fairly new set of Apple buds resurfaced, so I had four sets for the bake-off. Caveats: First I am 40-something, with a few too many years of loud music, so I decidedly do NOT have audiophile ears. Second, I tested these right out of the package. Many reviews discuss the need to break in a set of drivers, so this could skew the results. Third, all of them sounded pretty good. I would have been satisfied with any of the new ones, so any negative remarks are for comparison's sake. Note, I tested the buds with an Apple Nano gen4, with music I favor, specifically acoustic/folk and hard rock, in both cases somewhat "busy", having a wide range of frequencies going in the mix. I have a strong preference for drivers that provide good presence and clarity in mid-range, and producing clear overtones without being too bright or tinny.

Results: Fourth place, Apple buds. These sounded somewhat muffled vs. the clarity of the others, and they are really uncomfortable and fall out easily when positioned for best sound. Third place, JLab Audio JBuds J2. Very comfortable fit, with good sound isolation and solid bass, but still sounded somewhat muffled vs. the other two new sets. Close second place, JVC Xtreme Xplosives. Again great fit with good sound isolation. As advertised, these offer very pronounced bass, exaggerated even.

Analytical Review of Xtreme Xplosives In Ear (JVC HA-FX1X)

I bought this item for $20.46, plus $4.95 as shipping (making it a total of around 25 dollars). Shipping was two days late, but it was totally worth it! Let me clarify:

Comfort: 8/10
These headphones look very bulky in the picture--and truth is, they are. The large earpiece protrudes out of the ear a bit, and might look a bit weird. My main gripe is that you cannot sleep with these comfortably! The black earpiece that sticks out pushes against my pillow, which makes it come out of my ear. This does not matter THAT much to me, because I actually bought these to replace my old ones. For standard use, like sitting in a chair, these are phenomenal. They are extremely light and fit comfortably, without producing the strange ear pressure that other in-ears do. Overall, the comfort is very good and above average for in-ears.

Build Quality: 9.5/10
Admit it--in the picture, these headphones look bad *ss. They look extremely rugged, and from what I've felt they are. The cord is very thick for earphones. All of the black parts are rubber, and the "extreme bass port" is lined with metal (or silver plastic). The rubber strip that covers the bass port feels extremely rigid (not what I expect from rubber). So I am assuming that the rubber is similar to a car tire. Since the cable is relatively thick, these should tangle less than your standard iPod touch headphones. There is no slider at the Y-Joint, so you can't hold the ends together. I never used this anyways. Also, the cable seems to have relatively low memory: this means that if it is held in a small roll, it will not keep its bent shape.

Sound Quality: 8/10
Of course, everyone wants to read about the sound.

Package Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
The reason I emphasize the item I am reviewing is because Amazon, for some reason, is applying the same customer ratings/reviews of the "JVC HAFX1X Headphone Xtreme-Xplosivs" (note the 1X instead of 3X) to this item (the 3X's). The 3X's are a newer version of the 1X's

This is very much MISLEADING. Allow me to explain.

The 1X's are AWESOME. Most of the positive reviews here apply to the 1X's not the 3X'S. I know this because I've bought both.

The 3X's boast 2 new features over the 1X's that supposedly make it better and justify the increased price.

- a "metal housing" vs. plastic
- a "carbon diaphragm" vs. paper

I first bought the 1X's and were blown away by them. They rival comparable ear buds in terms of sound quality and bass and offer noise isolation on top of that. Other positive reviews here go into detail about them but the purpose of my review is to help anyone that may be looking at the 3X's and think all the positive reviews are about them.

The 3X's are HORRIBLE.

Forget the 2 new features.

- Nothing

- The treble is very low when the bass is leveled. Increasing volume to gain more treble results in too much bass for the level of volume and treble. You could tinker with treble in your music player but why should you? Out of the box the sound should be at least OK, not crappy.
- Music sounds "faint" or "far away" which requires more volume increase than normal. Even if you insert the earbuds properly and as deep as possible the music will continue to sound far away.
- The left ear bud makes a clicking sound when the head moves around.
