JVC HA-M5X

 

Far better than most under-$50 headphones and a major upgrade over Apple earbuds. Handles heavy bass at high volumes without distorting

Design is a bit over-the-top. Not terribly comfortable for long listening periods

If you can get past the too-flashy design, audio performance from the $50 JVC HA-M5X headphones exceeds expectations.

JVC HA-M5X

 

The JVC HA-M5Xs are a pair of relatively inexpensive over-ears that come packaged like most plastic toys do: in a clear plastic clamshell that is impossible to open without a knife. Despite some disappointing audio quality results and a design more...

The JVC HA-M5Xs are a little disappointing in performance, but not irredeemably so.

JVC Xtreme Xplosives (Black) review: JVC Xtreme Xplosives (Black)

 

While most audiophiles value open headphones that emphasize balanced accuracy over artificial bass boosting, the popularity of digitally enhanced headphones like the Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Studio prove the average consumer's attraction to bass. JVC...

A unique Ring Port structure in the earpads gives the JVC HA-M5X full-size headphones a deep bass kick for a much lower price than competing models.

The headphones leak sound even at low volumes, exposing your music tastes to the world around you.

You'll get a kick out of the JVC HA-M5X headphones if you like music that emphasizes thundering bass, and their sturdy construction and adequate noise cancellation come at an affordable price.

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

While it’s plain to see that the JVC HA-M5Xs are by no means studio headphones, but they aren’t going to leave you with an empty feeling that you’ve gotten ripped off if you pick them up either. Despite their bland design and mediocre-to-bad frequency...

JVC HAM5X Xtreme Xplosives Around Ear

 

Aggressive-looking headphones, aggressively priced.

Wide sound ; Can sound great with sufficient EQ

Unbalanced sound ; Lack treble sparkle ; Not that comfortable ; Significant sound leakage

The JVC HAM5X Xtreme Xplosives Around Ear are basic headphones, with little need for accessories. The 1.2m cable ends in a 3.5mm jack, and is home to neither handsfree kit nor remote control. There's no case supplied, but at the low price it's not...

"Great around the ear headphones for the price."

 

I have a pair of some premium noise-cancelling "Studio" gaudy headphones, and I don't exactly want to sweat all over them at the gym. With that said, the JVC Xtreme Xplosives are a magnificent value for the price. I listen to a lot of heavy rock and...

Cheaper than the leading gaudy headphones. The bass is in fact "Xplosive". Frequency response: 7Hz-23KHz. Not too many headphones sport a good freq response these days. I also dig the ridiculous aesthetic design.

Treble could be a little bit better.

I use these for everything from voice chat to gaming to music. Excellent for all applications. Recently, I dropped them and they dented my wall. Suffered no damage. Also, they really can get your ears shaking all the way down to 7 Hz without...

Beautiful sound quality, amazing bass and infrasound, solid construction, super comfortable

Heavy, but I hardly notice it anymore

Consumer review by: InverseTundra (newegg.com)

Big physical size but big sound too

 

If your looking for a cheap pair of good bass headphones then i highly recommend them

I have just received them today and they have great sound. to me it isnt as flat as some people say. nice high's, not extremely high and crisp but definitely not bad or even close to. and the bass which is the focal point of these headphones is...

The only con i see is that they are huge and bulky. but they do make up for it with sound quality
