As my wife and 'tween-ager are virtual Bermuda Triangles for ear buds, they eventually lose/break all theirs and subsequently borrow mine with the same outcome. Thus I recently found I needed to buy three new sets of ear buds at once. I bought three different sets off Amazon, all having decent reviews: JVC HAFX67R, JVC Xtreme Xplosives, and JLab Audio JBuds J2. Today I sat down to compare them all side-by-side. In the interim, a fairly new set of Apple buds resurfaced, so I had four sets for the bake-off. Caveats: First I am 40-something, with a few too many years of loud music, so I decidedly do NOT have audiophile ears. Second, I tested these right out of the package. Many reviews discuss the need to break in a set of drivers, so this could skew the results. Third, all of them sounded pretty good. I would have been satisfied with any of the new ones, so any negative remarks are for comparison's sake. Note, I tested the buds with an Apple Nano gen4, with music I favor, specifically acoustic/folk and hard rock, in both cases somewhat "busy", having a wide range of frequencies going in the mix. I have a strong preference for drivers that provide good presence and clarity in mid-range, and producing clear overtones without being too bright or tinny.

Results: Fourth place, Apple buds. These sounded somewhat muffled vs. the clarity of the others, and they are really uncomfortable and fall out easily when positioned for best sound. Third place, JLab Audio JBuds J2. Very comfortable fit, with good sound isolation and solid bass, but still sounded somewhat muffled vs. the other two new sets. Close second place, JVC Xtreme Xplosives. Again great fit with good sound isolation. As advertised, these offer very pronounced bass, exaggerated even.

Analytical Review of Xtreme Xplosives In Ear (JVC HA-FX1X)

I bought this item for $20.46, plus $4.95 as shipping (making it a total of around 25 dollars). Shipping was two days late, but it was totally worth it! Let me clarify:

Comfort: 8/10
These headphones look very bulky in the picture--and truth is, they are. The large earpiece protrudes out of the ear a bit, and might look a bit weird. My main gripe is that you cannot sleep with these comfortably! The black earpiece that sticks out pushes against my pillow, which makes it come out of my ear. This does not matter THAT much to me, because I actually bought these to replace my old ones. For standard use, like sitting in a chair, these are phenomenal. They are extremely light and fit comfortably, without producing the strange ear pressure that other in-ears do. Overall, the comfort is very good and above average for in-ears.

Build Quality: 9.5/10
Admit it--in the picture, these headphones look bad *ss. They look extremely rugged, and from what I've felt they are. The cord is very thick for earphones. All of the black parts are rubber, and the "extreme bass port" is lined with metal (or silver plastic). The rubber strip that covers the bass port feels extremely rigid (not what I expect from rubber). So I am assuming that the rubber is similar to a car tire. Since the cable is relatively thick, these should tangle less than your standard iPod touch headphones. There is no slider at the Y-Joint, so you can't hold the ends together. I never used this anyways. Also, the cable seems to have relatively low memory: this means that if it is held in a small roll, it will not keep its bent shape.

Sound Quality: 8/10
Of course, everyone wants to read about the sound.

I used to own a pair of Beats Solo headphones. I purchased these and sold the Beats to someone else. If you buy Beats or Bose, you are getting quality, but you are mainly paying for the brand. The Xtreme Xplosives are just as good for a fraction of the price. They are definitely for bass enthusiasts. HOWEVER, the mids and highs come through quite clearly. Listening to sounds such as orchestral music, spoken word, etc. are not painful by any means due to the bass. If you purchase the Xtreme Xplosives, take the time to try the different sized earpieces, as they change not only the comfort, but also the way the sound hits your ears.

As a side note, I highly encourage anyone to download high quality audio (such as mp3s with a bitrate of 320kpbs or lossless .flac files) to test headphones (or just in general). Also, be sure to experiment with different songs (across multiple genres) or audio files before judging quality of your sound setup.

These things are... I don't think words can describe the clarity, sound, and the power these things are capable of.

First, let me start with design. Although it looks a bit too bulky, they actually are not. They are also very comfortable, and don't annoy your ears when they're in there for a long time. The cord itself is good; it feels tough and I don't think it will fall apart any time soon.

In terms of sound, these are definitely the "bassiest" headphones out there. I listen to trance, techno, pop, etc. The bass is absolutely overwhelming. Definitely sound like an explosion in your ears (but a pleasant one, at worst). Believe me when I say this (and other reviewers confirm it too), they can easily rival $100+ dollar headphones. Those Dr. Dre's, are nothing but a label for the price. These earphones prove that, in fact, companies like JVC can create equal quality.

Speaking of how well they capture sound, I would say it's all subjective. I personally love it. It hits all the right spots. They have a great frequency response. That's all you need to know. If they respond, that means you'll hear it. People who are audiophiles may say they drown out highs, or mix mids and lows... naah. Absolutely not true. Why do people like Bose if they suck? Well, it's because people like to follow band-wagons and all of that nonsense. Same goes for these.

Highly, highly, recommended. You won't regret buying these. Definitely will buy another pair if something happens to these ones. Absolutely marvelous.
