Nice sound given the price and size.

Pros:Small, stylish, good price, good sound.

Cons:Cord could do with being longer.

The Bottom Line: Nice sound, nice price, nice headphones. Not much more to say.


No in-ear headphones at this price are ever going to compete with expensive, well-engineered, well-built items - that's just the way it is. But unless you're a total audiophile, these JVC items will be a pleasing purchase for most people. They come with a few different sizes of foam rubber earpiece covers to cater for earholes ranging from those the size of a pencil lead right up to full-on channel tunnel monsters. Being in-ear headphones, they do block a remarkable amount of ambient sound, and having worn them on several transatlantic flights now, I find myself wondering why I ever paid a couple of hundred bucks for noise-cancelling items. These use the most basic principle there is - block the ambient noise - and for this price they work pretty well at doing that. So much so that I now wear them under my helmet when riding my motorcycle too - they're small enough to fit without any bother, and I can listen to music whilst on long motorway treks or blasting up deserted mountain passes.

The sound quality is good, although it can get a bit 'woolly' (for want of a better expression) from time to time. The bass and treble are nicely reproduced for most music types without being too boomy or too tinny. JVC have struck a nice middle ground here.
I'm sure your original edition Wagner or Beatles vinyl won't sound any good through these headphones, but plug them into your insert-generic-name-here MP3 player and they'll more than suffice.
