  • Summary: This is great for the price. Its sound reminds me of Stax headphones or electrostatic speakers, both of which I don't own, but have heard on a few occasions.  It needs extensive(100+ hours?) breaking in to help tame the highs and bring out the bass.
  • Pros: great clarity and detail
  • Cons: highs can be too strong at times. No strain reliefs on buds. Plug is not right angle

JVC HA-FX40 Review

  • Conclusion: Despite their somewhat bright and harsh treble, the JVC HA-FX40s do have a lot going for them. The fit, comfort and security are excellent, especially for only $30 — and they still sound noticeably better than the dreadfully awful giveaway buds often included with your MP3 player or phone.
  • Pros: Noticeably better sound than stock mobile-device earbuds, Plenty loud with any device due to high sensitivity, Good amount of bass, Angled ear tubes and rubber-fit stabilizers provide comfortable, secure fit
  • Cons: Somewhat bright, harsh-sounding upper mids and treble, Lower-than-average noise isolation, Awful, scissors-only blister packaging
