JVC HA-FXC50 In Ear Headphone with Air Cushion Technology, Silver


Used them with a usb adapter on the pc and alone on an old mini radio.

Decent sound quality


Consumer review by:

I have 2 pair and love them!


This is my second pair of these "ear buds". Other ear buds are too big for my hole (i said hole) or they fall out if I yawn or chew gum. The wing outside of the bud catches on your ear. So you insert it with the wing at a 45 degree angle and then...

Soft and they stay put

Expensive unless you find a coupon code being a newegg email subscriber

At this price, a real gem


Only bought these with a coupon that reduced them to $7 shipped, which is pretty fantastic. I wasn't happy with the OEM tips, but stuck on a pair of Comply foamies, which cost $4 a pair (tips as much as the phones) and that brought them to life....

Fit is a little odd, but with the foamies, not too bad. Some microphonics too, so could use a shirt clip

Sound good than many


My favorite always be CX250 but I would pick these up occasionally to get the difference sounds from my already favorite musics.

Sounds good than expected at the price of $40. For the price that I got, it's a steal. You could hear more sounds more instruments than many in its price range. Bass is deep, really deep almost bloat but clean. Mid is reasonably clear but Hi is very...

Sound harsh, almost dirty and the bass cracks on high volume. It is acquire taste, unlike the delicious Sennheiser CX300, and not as clear and bright like CX250 either. The mid-size ear-plugs are too small to be mid-size. It is a pain to find the plugs...

inconsistency in quality


i bought 2 of these and 1 pair is very clear and detail in sound, but the other pair i got is bass heavy, muddy, no depth. now that the good pair i got, its left earbud is always dead at first, but if up the volume loud would bring it back to life. ...

It is light and comfortable. sounds very detailed and clearity is good. that's when you got the good pair

1. inconsistency in sound quality with the 2 pairs i got ; 2. questionable build quality

Terrible Sound Quality


suprise to see JVC made such a bad product, if they continue to produce product like this, it is possible they will go bankrupcy.

Looks nice

Inferior sound qualily, almost same as one from dollar store. No base, harsh tremble. If compare with the open air earphone in dollar shop, this one is not good as that

Good so far


other than the cord, i like them alot. they're the first buds i've ever owned so i'm quite satisfied

1. Great Sound ; 2. Noise cancellation is great. (i was mowing the lawn with these with my mp3 player up half ways on volume and i couldn't hear the lawn mower) ; 3. Comfortable ; 4. Durable, so far (i had them on my bed which has black sheets. and i...

the only con i have is the short cord, i didnt think it would be that much of a problem but it is. but lucky for me i already had extensions for headphones so that was easily fixed

Can't Go Wrong at This Price


Use on an iPod Classic. Ordering a second pair at this price. Received second day after order.

Easy to tell L from R. Good sound, especially mid to high range. Cord is a good length for me (5'7"). The slider on the cord helps to keep them tangle-free. Much better than the set Apple packs with iPods. Helps to block some noise

Feel like they are going to fall out. Logo rubbing off. Noise blocking isn't all that great. Bass could be stronger

Product Specifications

The HA-FXC50 provides excellent sound and superior sound isolation by employing an innovative MICRO-HD driver unit, loaded into the tip of the headphone housing. Different from conventional in-ear headphones, this allows the driver unit to stay in the ear canal, delivering high-definition sound directly into the ear without diffused reflection. The silicon earpieces are both comfortable and practical, fitting securely in the ear while minimizing sound leakage at the same time. The earpieces come in three sizes to ensure a customized fit, and the headphones come with soft rubber cushions designed for hours of comfort for any wearer.
