Summary: After having sony mdr ex50's I decided I needed headphones with a little more punch for my electronic music. After listening to it once, I feel like there is nothing better in this price bracket with this much bass to offer. You can feel your chest tremble sometimes(it actually doesnt shake it), and it can sometimes be overwhelming for some. Overall, great headphones.
Pros: Good bass and Rumbling sub-bass,fairly wide sound stage , clear separation. warm tone, Loads of volume. -no amp, Decent trebles, Build Quality
Cons: Small hissing b/g noise, a bit large for few people, muddy bass if pushed, trebles can be shrill at times - Its a JVC
Broke within a week, Left side has less volume than right.

Summary: Broke within a week, Left side has less volume than right. Was very dissapointed as I read very good reviews about the product, perhaps I got the dodgy one. I would recomend my replacement though the razer electra.
Summary: I received these headphones two years ago and they were great. The cable broke and I got a new pair at Christmas. The cable broke after only 2 months. They sound amazing, and although they aren't noise canceling they still cut most of the noise out.
Summary: I have been looking at these buds for quite a while now. I am the biggest bass head you'll find... I could tell after just hearing one song that these were perfect for me. I never knew a pair of ear buds could produce such deep yet clean bass. I can tell you without hesitation, THESE ARE THE BEST EAR BUDS if your looking specifically for deep bass that makes you shiver.
Summary: bought theses [price] still regret them. Great bass but hissing sound prominent like what other users said even with after burn in (in fact hissing got worse give you head aches). I think they were trying to emulate an echo effect which is great in a few songs but craps out in others. [...] Do not buy unless your ok with hisses and white noise along with your bass. i wish i could return them.
Summary: Bought these and they worked fine for about 4 months. Then one day without reason, one side stopped working. Called JVC and all I got was pathetic customer service. Apparently the warranty is 1 year for the US but only 90 days for Canadians. Go figure! So save yourself the trouble and stay away from this one..
Summary: Now with the sound. Lets get low in frequency and talk bass, and does it deliver or what. Very good subbass rumble with a nice touch of kicking midbass to color the entire low section. Mids are very warm and analytical. Very articulated, but quite recessed.(can be fixed using equalizer.) Highs are a little sharp and present. I would consider this very fun iem to listen to overall. Great iem overall to for a bass-orientated listener.
