A far better value compared to the Bose around-ear headphones!
on October 27, 2009
I bought the Bose around-ear headphones for traveling and light home use and they did sound great but I wasn't happy with spending well over a $100 for a pair of headphones. Searched around, found the JVC HA-S700 and tried these out. I compared these side by side with the Bose and to my ears, they sounded nearly identical while priced far below their true worth at a little over $30. They share similar design characteristics as they are both around the ear style head phones. The foams surround on the ears are very soft and comfortable and they doing a great job of blocking out most of the ambient noise around you. Listening to Live music is very enjoyable as they reproduce the various audio subtleties that make up live recordings. Bass response is solid and distortion free while mids and high frequencies ring out crystal clear.
In the end, I returned the Bose and kept the JVC and I couldn't be happier. Excellent product at a very competitive price.
