These are the best inner ear headphones I've ever owned.

This earbuds did it very well, they keep the noice out and they sound very well, you can have a nice quality of sound and the bass are great.

Very comfortable and average sound quality that blocks out most ambient noise.

I just purchased these buds tonight on 11/6/06 for $20. As soon as i got into the car, I quickly plugged them into my iRiver H120 mp3 player. For reference, I currently own the JVC HA-FX55, HA-F120, Sennheiser CX300, and Audio Technica ATH-CK7. First, just a note, my HA-FX55 took at least 20 hrs to burn in and so this review may be premature. I'm going to leave them playing overnight and I'll ammend this review if anything changes.

First the cosmetic stuff: These headphones are super comfortable. The foamies are a good size and do a nice job making sure they sit tight in your ear. Also, the colors are very nice. The blue has a slightly sparkly hue and is in 2 tones. Finally, there is a single round wire (instead of the connected double wire) which feels like it is well made. There is a very small amount of microphonoics but it is much less than in some other phones I've tried. Last, the cord is a Y cable and not a J like the FX55. I prefer the J but it's not much of a problem here.

Onto the sound: To put it simply, I am not impressed. The phones are very bassy and that serves to drown out the pretty decent highs. The mids are there but once again overshadowed by the abundance of bass. (Similar to the Sony EX71) I think these headphones have potential but I can not recommend them over the HA-FX55 which can be had online for around $23. After using these, I quickly switched to the CX300 ($40) and then to the ATH-CK7 ($75). The price increases actually makes sense since the other headphones (especially the CK7) sounded far far better than these. I am not forgetting that these are 1/3 of the price, though.
I would recommend these to poeple who find other IEMs uncomfortable. JVC calls them "Marshmallows" for good reason.

These JVC 'phones represent an incredible value. Bass response goes all the way to the "bassment", mids are clear, and octave to octave balance is pretty good for an inexpensive 'phone (i've heard expensive ones that were much worse in this regard). Highs are slightly too bright for my taste (I always prefer audio gear to err on the mellow side of neutral). Still that's why God invented equalizers...a slight rolloff on the highs makes this dirt-cheap 'phone sound like a million bucks. I should know...I've been involved in radio, audio production, and studio ownership for more than 30 years. I own, and have used, some of the best headphones made.

I couldn't recommend them more highly!

I am very finicky about headphones, and by and large, most of the ones I have tried are uncomfortable, do not stay in my tiny ears, or the cord is either too long or too short.

These were good on all those counts. I wear foam earplugs to bed at night, so that feeling was comfortable to me, and they expand in such a way that they did not fall out. The cord is also the perfect length, and the slider to adjust where the y-split occurs was helpful.

What I didn't like was the sound quality. I had just bought the Philps SHE-9500 and quickly found out that the cord tangles easily, hangs on my clothing pulling the buds out of my ears, was the perfect length for the armband i have yet to purchase but too short for even clipping it to my waist, and with the extender, it was immensely too long for my pocket. plus the buds kindof hurt my ears after an hour or so. So I decided to try these instead.

Worlds apart in comfort! and no issues with the cord. I tried putting one of the foamy cushions on the Philips bud and sitting with one of each in my ears to compare. That helped, if only a little. But when I started switching which one was plugged into my mp3 player, I was shocked at how much clearer it was with the Philips. There's a distinct hiss in the background of clean songs with these. If you're just using them for working out at the gym, or jogging or something, that might not be a big deal, but personally, I am thinking of keeping both and using the foam pads on the Philips set.

Why's it got to be so doggone hard to find good quality, comfy earbuds?? :P

There are enough reviews already, but I thought I would provide one with more specifics.
Test environment:
- Sandisk Sansa Express 1GB (never been an ipod owner/user/fan)
- using Black Sabbath Dio Years MP3 music & Utada Hikaru MP3
- direct comparison of 3 earbuds: Jvc HA-FX33-A, Philips SHE9500, and V-Moda Vibe.
- I also enjoyed the Koss The Plug earbuds a few years ago, but their foam disintegrated and I haven't home made new ones for it as so far.

I had the Sansa and V-moda first. Feeling that I could probably find a cheaper equivalent for the Vibe, I went and got the JVC and Philips after reading some amazon reviews.
To make a long story short, the vibe is the richest sounding, in terms of loudness, and bass.
Then the Philips is a whimpier and muted version of the vibe.
The JVC is dead last. Sounds very tinny, and weak. I don't know what those folks who say they like it mean. They must not have much experience with various earbuds. Also the JVC looks like it will suffer the same fate as the Koss, in that the foam is cone shaped, so it falls out of your ear, and probably will not last.
The vibe and Philips are rubber cups, so they will rip eventually, but they seal and stay in your ear good when new.

I am going to try the expensive $99 Shure ones next. Will let you know.

Good luck.
