Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive pair of on-ears and, after reading some positive reviews on the "flats", I decided to give them a try.
Packaging: simple as it gets. No accessories. Just the earphones in a plastic package.
Build quality: materials are on the cheap side, but with no major concerns.
Summary: I was looking for a cheap set of closed headphones for use in NYC, walking the streets, riding on the subway, etc. found good reviews of the JVC Flats on various websites and decided, "heck, for $12, why not?".
Pros: cheap, light-weight, portable, good sound
Cons: flimsy, non-robust construction and cord, isolation isn't great
Summary: On another forum someone recommended this headphone. Since it was so cheap I thought I would try it. I was so impressed by its neutrality. It reminds me of the Sony V6. It has decent bass, however the bass is in proportion and sounds natural. The midrange and highs also sound natural.
Pros: Very neutral sounding-Almost a mini Sony V6. Better treble than the PX100 & Portapro. Bass more natural than the Portapro. Sturdy construction.
Cons: Thin cord. It would be better if it had velour earpads. The plug is not a right angle one. Isolation is not so good. Headband doesn't fold.
