This review is from: JLab Audio JBuds J6 High Fidelity Metal Ergonomic Earbuds Style Headphones, GUARANTEED FOR LIFE - Nero Black (Electronics)
Just opened these about an hour ago and felt compelled to write a quick review... They impressed me that much.
I'll be honest, my expectations weren't terribly high. I was looking for a lower-priced IEM that would hold me over while I searched for my temporarily misplaced (hopefully) Ultimate Ears SuperFi 5 Pro's.
My first impression is that these are very smooth and easy to listen to for extended periods. The earbud itself is relatively compact and sits in my ear canal quite comfortably. The bass response is not as tight as the really high-end stuff ($200++), but is certainly present without sounding muddy. Midrange tends to be a problem with most of the earbuds I've tried, but it's quite smooth with these. Highs are also present and clear without being overstated or harsh.
Sure, there are better sounding IEM's out there, but you'll pay a LOT more (triple at least) to get better sound. To most people who've not experienced a high-end set of Sennheisers, Shure's, or Ultimate Ears, these will probably be the best sounding headphones they've ever heard.
ANYONE who's upgrading from whatever came with their player is in for a BIG and pleasant surprise. Not only will I recommend these to friends and family, but they shouldn't be shocked to find these showing-up around birthdays and Christmas! Shhhhhh...
