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

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...

Economical

 

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.

Outstanding value for money!

 

On sale via play.com for 3.99 and these are simply stunning. The sound is wonderful across the range. Very comfortable too and I have only small ears.

Buy other headphones

 

Bought a pair of these as i have had JVC Gummy headphones in the past so thought i'd give these a try but they were a waste of money as they constantly fall out of my ears. I have now had to pay for another pair as i finally gave up on these!!!

Product Specifications

For clear, full sound the JVC HA-F240 features a large 11mm neodymium driver unit that offers high power handling and sensitivity. To further enhance the listening experience, friction noise has been greatly reduced through the use of a 1.0 meter friction noise reduction cord, equipped with an iPhone-compatible plug. The silicon rubber air cushion sets a standard for comfort in the ear bud category. The soft-touch cushion changes shape to conform to the contours of the wearer's ear, ensuring that the ear buds fit securely and comfortably. The HA-F240 meets the demands of the style-conscious music listener, all the way down to the matching color cord.
