Great sound, HORRIBLE quality

Anonymous, Newegg
28 August 2010
  • Summary: JVC customer support? call an 8OO number that leads you nowhere, and gives you "support and replacement" numbers and locations that do NOT replace or support, unless they mean sell you other jvc parts. Last JVC anything i will be purchasing.
  • Pros: Great sound quality, comfortable
  • Cons: 2nd pair, first ones fell apart about 3 months in, 2nd pair, sound became choppy then almost altogether cut out for no apparent reason

Great sound, Easily breakable

Anonymous, Newegg
19 July 2010
  • Summary: Really like the sound of the earbuds, would give it 5 eggs, except for they only lasted about 3 1/2 months. At this price point, i would hope for some better quality plastics holding the speakers together, and the connector. I keep pretty good care of my investments, and this one was just a bust.
  • Pros: Fantastic sound, great, crisp highs, and powerful bass (for earbuds) They fit well, and are small and easy to tote around (in their convenient carrying case) and comfortable for hours on end (with appropriate earpiece)
  • Cons: Had them for 3 months before they fell apart on me, first one of the in-ear drivers came lose, then about a week later the other one did, and although it still played, it is still broken, the plastic holding the in-ear drivers is kinda chinsy. The last straw was that the connector had broken (the...

Great sounding Phones

Eric M., Newegg
6 May 2010
  • Summary: I was a little nervous spending this much on a pair of headphones, but after Listening to these, I'm really glad I didn't skimp out on cheap phones. I would not hesitate to buy these again.
  • Pros: These JVC phones are Outstanding. They have crystal clear highs, good mids, and solid bass. The driver appears to be the same as the FXC50, but has slightly brighter highs, and a much, much wider soundstage. They are comfortable, I can wear them for hours without my ears hurting. Isolation is ave...
  • Cons: Limited to the tips they come with. With the unique shape of the micro HD driver, I havent found any replacement tips that fit correctly, however the phones do come with 3 sets of buds.

Good sound, bad fit

Ramon F., Newegg
26 March 2010
  • Summary: My old Shure E3c headphones broke. After trying different brands (JVC, Sony, Bose) I went back to Shure -- the sound is great and the ear-canal piece is tiny, so they never feel uncomfortable.
  • Pros: Beautiful, crisp sound, with clear treble and powerful bass.
  • Cons: The in-the-ear piece is *huge*, which makes these painful to use. Even with the smallest earpiece these feel very uncomfortable. Make sure your ear canal is big before you buy these. It's a pity, because I truly love the sound, but they are poorly designed.

Bass is horrible, fxc51 MUCH better

Matthew, Amazon
31 July 2013
  • Summary: I am going to leave it brief: I had the JVC HA-FXC51's and they managed to break in one ear after a year and a half. These were initially a little 'high' but after a week they had broken in, and were simply brilliant for the money, and the bass was very good with no distortion.

High Quality Sound, Design Durability Below Par

Lewis, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: Once burnt in the sound was very good, as I had read in numerous reviews prior to purchasing them. I was after a lightweight, decent quality set of durable earphones to listen to music to and from work/on the train/while jogging.

Not bad, not great

Steve, Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: Good service first of all. As describred althought the whole 'HD sound' is a bit of a laugh, not sure how that even works as sound is either clear or not IMO. The earphones are of really good quality and the sound is pretty clear in fairness, the only problem is that they do not have any bass what...
