Customer Reviews

Very comfortable and great sound.
glen beals
Very light and so the push on your ears are not hard, so you don't feel a thing wearing it for hours.
I highly recommend these if you are looking for a good pair of headphones.

I usually buy the vertical in the ear headphone models made by Sony... I like them because they are light and the better models usually sound good. The last ones I bought broke last week, one of the earphones gave out, and I immediately looked them up online to see if they are still being sold and I couldn't find them. So, with dread in my heart, I began searching for a cheap replacement set. I considered the sony WO8L but then I remembered them as not sounding so good. After reading a lot of great reviews I ordered the panasonic RPH21. These did not sound good to my ears at all and were quite uncomfortable. I was starting to get discouraged because in my experience, with the exception of the vertical sonys, most headphone to me don't sound very good. I remember the first time I heard the Sennheiser PX100's which are very well reviewed relatively low cost headphones and being unimpressed with the sound presentation.

Anyway, I was just surfing around and I stumbled upon the JVC flats, while checking out headphones on radio shacks site. The reviews online were all pretty good and they looked interesting (the headphones fold flat), different then what I am used to, and the price seemed cheap at around $17 so I took a chance and picked them up at BB. I was looking for the has150nb model which is what i saw reviewed but they did not have it. They had this model which is the latest model. The only difference I can see is this model has a wider frequency range at 12hz-24,000hz.

I have to say out of the box these are one of the best headphones I have ever heard. They are better than the Sonys I am used to. Nothing is exaggerated. Everything is just rich and clear, cohesive and well balanced. Even poor quality recordings sound very nice on this. It has just a really nice stereo sound. You don't need to turn the volume up loud at all. They also feel great on my ears. They are really very good. Thank you JVC.

I have to say I am pleasantly surprised with these headphones. I'm not an audiophile, so I wasn't looking for anything fancy. All I needed was something kind of basic, light-weight, compact, and on ear for use with a laptop and iPod. I can't use any kind of earbud or in ear headphones because of inner ear issues and pain.

One of the downfalls to most on-ear headphones is that a lot of the sound is lost to the outside world and others are likely going to hear your music. But I didn't want something big and heavy like most over the ear models, so I thought I was just going to have to compromise on that. Then I saw these and how they are kind of like miniature over the ear headphones, and still light and portable. They even fold flat!

Now for under 20 bucks I wasn't expecting stellar acoustics, but when I first put these on I heard things in my music I had not heard before. The sound is complete, crisp, and deep. I don't feel like I'm missing anything, and I don't feel like I'm bothering people around me. I turned my music up to a comfortably loud volume and took the headphones off to see what it sounded like to others. I really couldn't hear it without putting it near my ears.

These aren't fancy, I know audiophiles will laugh at me for liking them so much, but for a basic, inexpensive headphone set, these are just the ticket, especially if you don't want earbuds. Highly recommended!

I recently bought these headphones at BB and for the sound quality I have to tell you I absolutely love the sound these sweet babies make and I was actully shocked at how wonderful they sound. I wanted them to use with my Android Phone since I am now starting to actually use it for my MP3 player. I would have given this set a full 5 stars on my review however I found out just how easily breakable these headphones are when I accidentally knocked them off my ironing board which at the time was serving as my laptop desk and I was listening to cd's I copied from my collection. I laid them down on the ironing board and when I bumped them off and they hit the floor one of the headphones (the right one) broke out of the socket that holds it to the head piece. I ended up having to super glue that part back together so I could use the set still but now the part I glued together of course doesn't "fold" now. I am still happy with the sound they make but I think JVC needs to rethink the design a little bit to make them less breakable. Nonetheless I am still planning on buying a couple of more sets of these to have as back up's because they really do sound great.... also these headphones have a slightly longer cord on them than most normal headphones do, so that is an added bonus... The cord is not too short and not too long. It seems to be just the right length. Overall I think you would enjoy these headphones, just don't drop them. They are very comfortable and the padding on them feels great on your ears.

I've been a semi-audiophile and a musician for... way too long now, and I have heard a lot of headphones in the $10-200 segment, both good and (mostly) bad. I'm always looking for good bargains in phones, and decided to check out the Flats along with several other closed-ear JVC models in the same price range. I came away pretty impressed with these little guys.

Note the "foldable" Flats do not appear to be "fully foldable" a la the Sennheiser PX100s; the earcups simply rotate 90 degrees, "flattening" the phones. This definitely does save some space for travel, but there's still going to be a significant footprint taken up in your carryon bag.

As far as I'm concerned, the phones to beat at this price point (and several points above, besides) are the Koss KSC75s. These phones have a sense of spaciousness, sweetness and detail that is frankly absurd for their price. The Flats, priced very comparably to the KSC75s, are still no match for them. However, unlike the KSCs, the Flats are a closed-ear design, so they do provide better isolation both for the listener and the listener's nearby compatriates. It's impossible to use the KSCs on an airplane; the Flats would probably fare at least somewhat better in that context.

So the Flats are probably best compared instead to phones like the venerable Sony MDR-V150. The 150 is a basic, cheap, small closed-ear phone at the same price point, and until now I've known of few others of similar design / price to recommend to folks wanting a semi-portable closed-ear model for a Jackson or so. The Flats definitely have much more character and sweetness in the midrange than the 150s, and I would recommend them over the Sonys for this reason alone.
