The sound isolation is great. Actually, it's dangerously great. Don't use while driving or while the wife tries to talk to you. Even if your music is off, the noise and sound you hear from your surroundings are amazingly low. Once you take them off, the real world sounds like hell.
The cable is long enough for you to move comfortably even when you have your music player in a low pocket, but not as long to be a nuisance.
Talking about durability, these earbuds seem pretty robust. Have been using them daily for several months and they are intact and I cannot foresee any wearing-off in a near future.
I have to point out, though, that putting them on isn't as simple as you should think. You must follow the instructions, otherwise, you will be reading more reviews criticizing the sound isolation. Actually it's a non-issue. Just press the earphone's marshmallow with your fingers (to compress it) in order to let it fit in easily into your ear. It will then expand and isolate you from the world outside. Once again, FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS.
If you're interested, buy it. I would hate recommending a non-awesome product to anyone since I am a customer that takes reviews very seriously. I hope this one has been of help. Kind regards.
I bought these for myself, after intense scrutinization on specs of earbuds, loved them, then bought a pair for my brother, he loved them -- and he has a million headphones to compare to, and bought them again when I lost them.
The Air Cushion -- which nobody uses or makes anymore, that I'm aware of, works just like foam ear plugs - squeeze them, stick them in your ear, and then the foam expands to essentially seal the ear. The Air Cushion is susceptible to water, so wearing them in the hot tub -- the steam will deteriorate them, as will prolonged sweating, e.g. 6-8+ hours of constant use in the ear.
Combined with the drivers, these headphones/earbuds are the best on the market, in the sub $100 range, and even in the $100+ range, hands down.
I've bought at least six pairs of them now, for myself and friends, and I strongly recommend them to anyone. If you have really tiny ears, they may not work, as they come with only two sizes of the wonderful little memory-foam ear cushions. But for most adults, they should be fine.
I've only been using this model for about six months, but they're holding up well to normal usage so far, even with my stepdaughter's girls fiddling with them now and then. An earlier version, JVC's HA-FX 34 Marshmallows, is still going strong for me after a year and a half despite considerable daily use, and occasional mishaps.
Now for the part I don't like. Hate! loathe! and despise! would be more accurate. The packaging. Perhaps there is some quick, painless, simple way to get the headphones out of their fortress-style package, but so far I have not discovered it. Somewhere, there are product-packaging designers who had better pray that I never win a big lottery, or I might just hire assassins to track them down and kill them in some truly sadistic way. Maybe they could be heat-welded into coffin-sized copies of the HA-FX 35 packages? No, no, that's too mean! Emergency crews could never get them free in time, and at least one of the rescuers might easily meet a hideous death in the attempt. Sigh. Okay, I wouldn't really kill anyone, but the struggle to open a new set of these phones does make me snarl and swear, every time. I just wish our personal information, pension funds, homeland security and human rights were defended from theft or attack half so well.
Please bring them back JVC.
