Product Description

IN EAR,Red

Customer Reviews

VALUE: I won't say because it hurts to even say I paid 30 dollars for this.
Emilio M. Esquivel
I can wear these for longer periods without discomfort too, although long talk radio sessions still demand the Ear Cushion phones for pure long-term comfort.
Coug Moog
The bass is nice and strong, but the treble is not very pleasing and the middle sounds too far.

I am a dedicated user of JVC "ear cushion" phones. They are the best cheap phones on the market.

For about $10 more you can get these and they blow away the ear cushion models in sound quality. They are quite comfortable. Not quite as comfy as the Ear Cushions, but still very good. I have phones from Etymotics and Ultimate Ears that cost far more than these. I pretty much listen to them at home. They are too valuable to take with me!

Here we have an inexpensive set of canal phones that sounds damn near as good as the $150 Etys, which I love. I can wear these for longer periods without discomfort too, although long talk radio sessions still demand the Ear Cushion phones for pure long-term comfort. You sacrifice some sound quality but for talk they sound great.

In this price range, we have a new champ. I've been saying that if JVC developed a low-priced phone with a "better sound" mission I would buy it. Well, they did, and this is it. I got mine in red, but you can get it in black as well. Sounds and looks great with Apple products or whatever miniplug player you're using.

If you're a headphone junkie like me, you'll probably try these out anyway.

This price segment is astoundingly crowded, with mostly fragile merchandise that isn't worth spending a twenty dollar bill on. And that goes for big name makers like Sony as well as small-time junk dealers like Skullcandy. This JVC set shares the small wire gauge of its rivals in the segment, and only time will tell if it is as prone to breakage as most. I've had good luck so far with its little downmarket brothers, and so far this model shows no sign of fragility.

It comes with three sizes of eartips, and two included sets of earwax filters.

Sound is great, I listen mostly to rock music, so the bass is nice. I don't know that I have fancy enough ears to tell the difference between $500 headphones and $50 headphones, but I can sure tell the difference between $5 and $50. These definitely fall into the latter category, and I will be getting another pair. They're comfortable, even when I'm working or exercising, and they don't move around too much in my ears. So why only 3 stars you ask? Durability.

Bought these headphones 9/30/11, they stopped working today 02/22/12. Don't get me wrong, I love these headphones, but five months is a little short of a lifespan. Today at work I noticed the sound cutting out intermittently, whenever the headphone jack would move or flex basically. Pressing on the jack makes the sound cut back in, but I use these to listen to music while I work, so keeping the headphone jack in one position the entire time without bumping it is a little out of the question. 1 year warranty, right? Just fax or e-mail JVC your proof of purchase, pay to ship the headphones to them, then wait 3-4 weeks for a replacement set to come your way. For $25, it makes more sense for me to just buy a new pair, which amazon will have on my doorstep by Monday.

The bass is nice and strong, but the treble is not very pleasing and the middle sounds too far. Over all, the sound is not very balanced. Have to turn the volume down to enjoy the music.

Some guy on head-fi was blabbing on about how good these are. I think he even compared them to his W4s and a number of other very expensive and high end IEMs. In retrospect, I should've known better than to trust him, even though he was an older and supposedly more experienced member. After all, why would you even wanna buy a $24 pair of IEM when you have two or three $400+ ones? I don't think he has so much as touched a pair of W4s, for these two are nothing alike, unless he's talking about the mediocrity of both.

Build quality and very good. And these are pretty.

Fit is meh. It's pretty shallow, and I prefer either earbuds or IEMs with deeper insertions. That's what she said. I half expected a pair of the marshmallow foam tips that you find with the Aircushion series, but nay there was none and I almost cried at that.

Sound is definitely pretty full-bodied. But there lacks clarity. Also as one other reviewer said, the mid sounds far away and treble is not so good, and you'd have to turn the volume down a bit for the music to be tolerable. Bass, which has the body and the quantity, lacks quality and texture.

The sound is nothing to write home about. I suppose it is like the W4s then, full and lacks clarity, and dull.

I will be returning this.

When I first purchased these ear buds, I was expecting a small upgrade in sound and bass quality compared to some $15 ear buds I previously owned. While I really enjoy the quality sounds the ear buds produce, I still feel that the bass could have been a little stronger and fuller. But for their price, they're still great to listen to.
