Now for the CONS: out of the package these buds had ungodly amounts of "SIBILANCE"...
as in any music that had cymbals (Which is basically all rock music) created horrible "Ear Piercing" TSSSS,TSSS,HSSS,TSSS,HSSS.....U-get the picture...actually hurts to hear it!!!
So, I burnt them in for 36 hours straight on an Ipod set to repeat the large variety ot tracks I have on it..... It helped a little, but not much....still too HISSY!!! Then I burnt them for another 36 hours straight using a "White Noise & Full-Range Frequency" Studio Monitor testing/burning track...... They still have "HISSSS"....Though not nearly as bad as out of the box.... as in no longer creating "Pain" when listening.... But they simply "Suck" at producing the higher frequencies...ie. crash cymbals, high-hats (Open or Closed) still sound nothing like a cymbal of any type...and this after 72 hours of burn-in....
The mid and upper mid frequencies are dull and muddled at best, not to say they're not there, but they are definitely "Laid Back" and nowhere near the forefront.
If you're looking for buds that honestly work well with Rap/Hip-Hop, Techno/Electronica, or Club-Style Mixes....GET THESE!!!
But if you want to listen to other styles of music that day, better bring an extra set of different buds with you because these simply will not cut it....Read more ›
I'd rank these guys and the FX40 as the best bargains I've yet enjoyed in audio. They handily beat even the classic PortaPro as a better value by sounding significantly better (clearer, more balanced) at half the price.
An aside: If you have a quality amp, such as the FiiO E11 or better, try the bass boost! Unamped, these things are the next best thing to the club. Amped, with bass boost, these things kick so hard. I can honestly say that they are on par with club audio. The sub-bass rumbles and is intimately textured, as is the bass. Mid-bass tightens up amped, too.
Try these earphones! For less than $20 you are practically STEALING from JVC. These are possibly the highest value earphones out there, alongside a properly burned-in HA-FX40. If you are a bass-head, these will satisfy you. I promise.

Excellent sound quality. Poor build quality. If you can keep from breaking some part of the thin cords in the interim, then, at best, these will last you for exactly one year,... Read morePublished 4 months ago by MarcusSpencer
