Summary: I keep coming back to these since they are about the best I have found for volume control and comfort. The small protrusion in the earbud takes a few minutes to get used to if you plan on laying down on them like I do.
Pros: "Very few ear-buds with 'volume control' actually control the ear-buds, most work only to adjust the 'player' (mp3, phone, etc) volume. This means your volume is in 6-8 stages rather than being truly adjustable. Also once you get to a certain level the sound cuts to zero. The JVC HA-F75V controll...
Cons: a 4 out of 5 for the wiring around the volume control. It needs beefed up. I have had 3 pair over the years and each failed at the same point. I'll be adding a drop of rubber cement or silicone to my next set to see how that works. Keeping in mind I sleep with these so this are might get some unp...
Pros: Provides the low response end as advertised unlike a majority of earbuds out there.
Cons: If the earbud is not properly in the ear, the sound suffers due to the requirements of the design and the transfer of sound. In otherwords you will hear the other one better if it is in your ear until you readjust.
Summary: This is the best $10 earphone I have ever purchased. Only negative I see is in-line volume control seems flimsy and it will break off in due time. But if I can get a year out of this item, then it would have been worth the price
Summary: The ear buds had no bass at all! The sound quality was not as expected, it was poor. The in-line volume control did not work, the half way and maximum sound levels were the same (actually this is the main reason I did not like the earbuds).
Excerpt: There's no way these earbuds fit in an ear! The design makes them fall out with the slightest movement of the head. The volume control is great, but the earbuds themselves are too much trouble.
Excerpt: Very disappointed in these headphones.They are not as JVC describes them.Uncomfortable,no bass. They sound like tweeter speakers with no bottom end. Very sad JVC!! I went back out and bought V-MODA headphones for[$]. They are amazing!!! They have clear highs and great bass end!! I hope this helps.
Excerpt: I decided to try these earphones when my old pair died. I chose these because of the in-cord volume control. They work great and let me turn down my MP3 player lower than the MP3 player's volume goes down.
