Just fabulous for the price. I needed some general headphones as i found my in ear bose ones were not suitable in the gym as they fell out of my ears on the rower and other equipment. I am amazed at how good these are and they stay in position.
My last pair of earphones went into the wash, came out like instant noodles, so i decided to buy a new pair. Never was really into earphones so i took a gamble with this one with good reviews. Product came earlier than they’d promised so that was a plus already, quality seems nice. The bass was nice, but since i wasn’t used to it, it does drown the singing a little bit, but after i got used to it, it’s alright.
Well, theres not much more i can say, these headphones are brilliant, the sound quality is superior to popular competitors like apple’s iphone headphones, the bass in these headphones are also amazing, however after about 70% volume you do start to notice a degrade in sound quality; im quite sure this will not be a problem to many people though as just like many other people i enjoy listening to music at very loud volumes and these headphones do satisfy your needs as they are generally quite loud after about 50% volume. My only real problem is that these headphones come with just one pair of small medium and large buds (medium being on default) and i feel they should have maybe included 1 more set of each sized bud as after a few weeks of very(as in hours per day almost all day) regular use the buds do become slightly loose which does affect the bass very slightly, however it’s not enough to ruin your experience and if it did become that loose you could easily acquire a new pair of buds off the internet. Also, if you are looking for pure music quality and do not really need the mic, i would recommend you purchase the standard xtreme xplosives as the sound quality is better than on this model due to larger drivers and the wire is also of a better quality, and ofcourse because they’re cheaper. The standard model also come with a carrying case which could come in handy for some people however this model does not. Overall i give this product a 4. 5/5, as it is an excellent pair of headphones but i think maybe they should have improved the quality of the wire, added a carrying case and possibly included an extra set of ear buds.
Got these ear buds as a rapid buy as my previous ones had just died. These so far fit the bill fine for my android phone. Sound is fine for an mp3, size wise they are great too. They are very comfortable to wear, look (in my opinion) great, and the start and stop music and start/stop calls function works fine on my nexus 5, i cant comment about other phones.
These headphones are small, light and very comfortable. They play music very loud and clear. The sound is quite deep and bassy but that suits me fine as they don’t sound cheap and tinny. The other good feature is you can’t hear that annoying sound when someone else is wearing them. They come in a selection of different colours. I bought white ones which look great against my phone and ipad.
I love these headphone and have purchased many different colours for under £8. I have had a daily use pair for over a year now so decided to stock up while the price was right. They have excellent sound and as mentioned are really simply and therefore robust. With a slim low profile when folded down around the neck. There is no noise cancelling as some descriptions/title state, and are not as good as my monster/beats or bose. However, they do have a great little sound and are ideal for commuting or everyday around the house use as they drop and fold flay when needed. They do not fold smaller, this s perhaps a good thing as hinges seem to be a weak link generally.
I have a pair of much more expensive headphones than these jvc-flats but there no where near as good as these. They provide excellent sound re-pro and you can hear every instrument being played in fine detail. They are light and comfortable to wear to. There also great value, for the money. This is my second pair as i wanted a pair for my desk top computer music and another pair for my i-pod.
These headphones provide some really, really great bass and all round the sound is of pretty good quality. In my opinion and experiences. Only issue i had was after about 6 months of use, being used for at least 5-6 hours a day (for music and microphone) the left earphone gave out and produced no sound at all. That said, for the price these headphones provided me with around 1000 hours of good sound and enjoyable quality music and for the price i cannot complain.
Its okay, microphone is only good for the mic itself, not useful for changing song etc also does not have volume control. Mic button gets stuck all the time now (after a few weeks). Sound is of good quality and i love the bass but you do get some sharp notes that hits hard (not in a good way) which hurts the ear especially if you’re enjoying your song. Fits fine in one ear and difficult to get it in the right place on the other ear. If you don’t do this then there is no bass really in that ear. Wires are thin, but i like the colour options. Wouldn’t buy again really nor recommend.
While yes, they do not contain a carrier bag unlike the old version of these earphones do, this certainly does make up for it. At the same price with a remote and microphone and it’s quality, it’s a bargain. The bass is absolutely beautiful, once you put them in and just listen to your first song, you’ll pretty much float for a second in awe. The buds are soft in the ear and comfortable, and although they may look heavy, they are actually quite light. The outer x’s on each earphone is in rubbish, and it’s soft too. I’ve had skullcandys in the past and they have been this quality but at a much higher price, and they always went faulty after about 3 weeks. I’ve had these for a lot more than 3 weeks, they are working just like new and you can store them any way you want, for me they have retained their quality. I;m giving 4 stars simply because they haven’t provided the case, as these earphones are so good that they really should deserve one.
Cheap, incredibly light, comfortable and surprisingly responsive for the price. I wanted some on-ear headphones to listen to audiobooks in bed that weighed next to nothing and worked nicely with speech – i was really impressed with jvc’s offering here, especially as they were less than a tenneri usually have huge grado, phillips or sennheiser cans driven by amps and dacs but they’re just unwieldy and unsuitable for a commute. These are punchy and are driven nicely from an iphone. Sure, the audio isn’t reference class, but considering how little they weigh you forget they’re even on. Pick up a pair in your favourite colour and keep them in a bag, they fold up to next to nothing and weigh less than an ounce while delivering better audio than the ‘free white headphones’ free with your idevice with the benefit of not getting clogged by sweaty ears.
Very happy with this product. I had already had similar ones and bought a new pair again when they stopped working. Of them , i use them mainly for music editing on my pc and to watch tv in the evening when my neighbors and other half are resting. They are not noise free but a very good quality product for this price. Hopefully they are not going to be discontinued as i can`t see them around as they used to be.
Very good product, well satisfied, prompt delivery, highly recommended.
Great light weight headphones for everyday use. Big hit with the kids who use them everyday for ipads, iphones and laptops. Saves a lot of shouting for them to ‘turn it down’ highly recommended, good value headphones.
My 2nd pair of these as my daughter stole my last pair. At under a tenner, they really cannot be beaten. Excellent sound with surprisingly good bass. Maybe sound is not quite as good as my five times more expensive sony headphones (though you have to listen hard), but i prefer the jvcs because they are more comfortable and unobtrusive. Good alternative if you don’t like in-ear headphones.
Good sound, sturdy, decent noise reduction for the price. Seem durable for the price too so i’d recommend.
Crystal clear sound and a nice long cord. Jvc is a great make for anything audio. Fit perfectly in the ear and come with other buds to change the size to bigger/smaller ears.
I found the ears stayed in place – the adjustable up and down is a nice feature for long eared people. They do feel cheap but they seem to work for the budget. Not the best i’ve heard but not the worst either. Don’t know how i managed to purchase them without reading the no volume control reviews. Rather annoying when running between loud and quiet areas.
I had 3 pairs of the iphone standard headphone fall apart on me so i thought i’d buy an alternative – but with hopefully better bass and a remote attached to enable volume control, easy skipping of tracks and microphone. According to the product description this ticked all the boxes – but once home and removed from the infuriating plastic packaging, they proved to be disappointing to say the least. Sound quality is passable – but with no distinct top end and a muffled bass response and no volume control – despite it being the first point on the description. As i have no others i will persevere with them – but these simply aren’t what i was expecting. The inline controls are a good feature – stop/skip/rewind with a click, but they feel flimsy and insubstantial as far as build quality goes. The ear buds are comfortable – with a selection of sizes to suit all ears. In all a budget pair of headphones with a middling performance – so i think 3 stars is appropriate.
Was looking for a decent pair of headphones with a mic that would work on my moto x. Not particularly heavy on the bass which suits me fine. The last pair i had lasted about a year and a half, which for the price is fine (also i didn’t take care of them all that well). This type of wiring gets a little tangled in the pocket, but they’re cheap and sound good.
Very pleased with this item, and very pleased with the price and more pleased with the service.
