JVC Gumy Air Earphones (Black)


We've said it before, and we'll say it again: the stock earbuds that came packaged with your MP3 player are not going to help you recognize the full potential of your device. (Unless, of course, you happen to own one of these players .) No matter how...

The JVC Gumy Air earphones are extremely inexpensive and come in a variety of colors. Music sounds clear and open.

The JVC Gumy Air earphones will not be comfortable for all users, and the sticky earpieces tend to get caught in long hair. Sound is weak unless they fit precisely in the ear.

The JVC Gumy Air earphones are a reasonable choice for users on a tight budget who want to replace the stock earbuds that come with MP3 players--but only if they fit properly.

Get what you pay for


Unorthodox design...can't really describe it.

Good sound quality, definitely not cheap bud quality you can get for $2

Sometimes it squeaks when I'm walking. Not entirely sure why, but even if I attempt to adjust it keeping squeaking with every little movement

You get what you pay for with gumy earphones ”


We've boughten several sets of these earphones for our children.  They come in really neat colors - our daughters in particular like that part.  They are fairly cheap.  I think we paid around $10 for a set.  They really didn't last very long.  I think...

The days of enormous headphones are gone with the birth of MP3'sand iPods. Rather than oversized circular, squeezed-tight headbands that overpower you, there are now miniature earplug sized contraptions that go right to the source! We have several Gumy...

Lightweight, small, sounds great

Uncomfortable, can hurt your ears

Not the most bass out of them. But for what you pay for they are excellent. I use them in a tight helmut for gps navigation so they do take a bit of roughing up. Will definitely get another pair as they have lasted longer than my other headpones.
