Consumer review by: Andrew (

Nice and cheap.


I like how they fit in my ears, and the sound for the price is fine. A decent pair of cheap earbuds. I dislike the cord design/style, I wish it were symmetrical and a single tube style wire covering.

The price is what made me buy these. I just wanted a cheap replacement of the default ipod buds that fit in the canal. I'm no audiophile, but the sound seems to be better than the default ipod buds. They are very comfortable in the canal, the 3 sizes...

The cord drives me nuts. I assumed the cord would be symmetrical and seamless like most modern ones. The right earbud has an extra long extension from where the cord spilts(1.5 to 2 feet), while the left is much shorter (~5 inches). I put it behind my...

not bad at all


Not too bad so far. Unequal length cords leading to ear buds (Ones that came with my old Sony player were the same).If you put the long cord behind your neck it is fine, but leaving it dangling in front is not good - it catches on things. Cheap at...

3 different earbud sizes, very light & can't feel them pressing in your ears.Good

Unequal cord lengths, soft bass - heard worse though

Stick 'em in your ear


I bought these as a replacement for the painful stock earbuds that came with my Creative Zen Micro. I picked these over the others because of the wide frequency response, the in-ear design, the 3 different sized inserts for a good chance of fitting me,...

good fit good sound good price

unusual unequal length wire design possibly fragile

Consumer review by: emberts (

Good clarity but very poor bass. A waste of money.


These ear buds are quite comfortable. I like the long cord, and they appear to be quite durable. With the right size ear fittings, they don't block out outside sound, or you can use bigger fittings and they work like ear plugs. The high frequency...

Good clarity, superb high frequency response

Very poor bass response makes these unusable

Hard to beat in it's price class. Using the in-line volume control I was able to increase the impedance which improved the sound quality from my Palm T5 dramatically. I bought an extra pair for my wife!

In-line volume control. Full bodied sound

Dont Bother With These


People buy earbuds for activities. The JVCs wire is way too long, and there is no way to get rid of the slack without tying it up. A problem with these earbuds is the lack of bass and this is readily evident on these headphones. If you turn the bass up...

Comfortable, Good Highs, Multiple Ear Pieces

No Bass, Too Long of Offset Cord, Poor Value

A Bad Choice for this price


I bought this headphones expecting high quality of other JVC products but it turned out to be a waste. It has a very long cable that seems like a mile long(very annoying) and clearly does not match the sound quality of my sennheiser Cx-300. Total...

Different caps to fit perfectly, good bass

Thin and long Cable, Badly built, can be easily distorted

Worth every penny, and then some.


These are great earbuds! Their overall sound quality is brilliant. Nice crisp treble, solid midrange and powerful, defined bass. They're comfortable in the ear, the cord is plenty long and the in-line volume control is convenient.

Great sound, long cord, inline volume control, comfortable, block all outside sound

They block all outside sound, making conversation very difficult, expensive

Consumer review by: sammio2 (



I have recently purchased a pair of these headphones, after searching for ages looking for a review before I played #24.99 for them I decided that there wasn't a review so I went ahead and brought them anyway. It was the BEST decision I have ever made,...

Bass, Treble sound quality, Light weight, Dont fall out, Long cable, Changable rubber

Rubber covers falling off in bag ?? Thats about it
