JVC Marshmallow (Red)


The first thing you're likely to do upon obtaining a new MP3 player is load it up with all your favorite music. Once that's done, the next best step is to replace the shoddy earbuds that came packaged with it. Of course, not everyone wants to drop a...

The JVC Marshmallow headphones are very inexpensive. They offer a secure, comfortable fit and good audio quality. They come in a wide variety of colors to match any recent iPod Nano.

The top part of the cable seems fragile, and the shallow earpiece design may not work for all users.

The JVC Marshmallow headphones are an exceptional value thanks to an ultralow price tag combined with solid audio quality, noise isolation capability, and a secure fit.

"Great sound, durable, reasonable price."


Overall the sound quality is great but may not be suited for everyone. At first I found the bass overly strong and sometimes amplifies tape hissing. Still the bass is rather "bouncy". The treble is at first a bit lacking and will require some burn-in...

Very wide frequency range

Marshmallow tips wear out over time, get "stale" and crack.

"Still rockin' after four years; pros outweigh the cons."


Impressive Noise Isolation

Can be less comfortable than normal earbuds

"Tip for former Skullcandy owners"


After just under a year of owning these, the foam eartips wore out and would no longer stay on the bud (they would get stuck in my ears). I didn't think the replacements were worth it since the cost is halfway to a new decent pair of headphones, just...

"Not Bad for the Price."


I've had these nifty earphones for over a year now. They've outlasted my Sony's, and those were nice. For a low price, they're exceptionally durable and not too fragile. You can also modify them a bit for better bass by breaking the rice paper inside...

Inexpensive, very durable, decent sound.

After a while, the foam on the earpiece cracks a bit.

"Best for the price."


I wear these with my iPod Touch in the gym 3 days a week for several months now. It blocks the grunts, groans and bellowing from the hardcore free weight crowd (and the sound of them dropping the 75# weights on the floor) as well as the (IMHO) crappy...

Light weight. Blocks ambient noise well. Durable. Stay in place while exercising.

Can be a little hard to remove if you have worked up a sweat. A volume control on the cord would be nice.

"Comfortable bad bass response."


Good for tin ears.

Great fit.

Connected to a Dell PC, output is low and bass response is terrible.

"Good sounding headphones that easily break."


After a couple months of use, the plastic near the tip of the plug started to crack which led to exposure of the wire which then led to a short in the wire rendering the headphones useless. I bought a second pair of the same headphones, believing it...

These headphones provide an amazing quality for the price.

They break easily.

Consumer review by: Tora23 (

"Fantastic value."


Definitely a step up from the stock buds that came with my sansa clip. The earpieces have to be settled in like a pair of earplugs, but once you get a secure fit these things sound great. (Try twisting them around a bit. You'll know when they are in...

Clear sound quality.

A little tricky to find the right fit.

"Poorer sound quality than iPod's Original"


Even though I hate earbuds, these will not be a replacement for me.

Cost is <$20.

Also bought these according to recommendation here. Not as loud as Apple's original and the sound was more tinny than Apple's, also. Didn't fit well in my ears.
