Cons: except for extremely annoying static. Thought it might go away with burn in, but after 2 months, the static is still there. It's especially bad when listening to podcasts. I can't use them anymore.
Cons: Don't sound very good...... I just broke my Sennheiser - Earbud Stereo Headphones (MX 580)... and decieded to try these (a little cheaper..) these headphones have a very "poor" sound. Not as much highs or lows... Songs sound very plain.... And I get alot of static just by plugging them into my ph...
Summary: The actual sound of the headphones are amazing. Literally I'd buy some more... if it wasn't for the fact they broke within 3 weeks. And I'm careful with EVERYTHING I own. The cable near the jack (where you input it into a device) the cable started fraying within 1.5 weeks.
I recommend the other XX JVC model. It's cheaper and better

Summary: I do not recommend this product, I recommend the other version of XX JVC ear phones which can be found on Amazon and are cheaper, just a good but more importantly, don't fall out your ears as explained below. The product it's self meets its criteria.
Excerpt: Bought these on the back of a few reviews but have to say was very disappointing, sound is fine....but they are really big earphones and proper uncomfortable to wear....as unable to return I will be binning them!
Summary: These appear to be re-makes and not by JVC, or if they are, they are factory rejects, after 2 attempts, the build quality was appalling, sound quality was naff and the first set were falling apart before id even taken them out of the box.
Summary: I don't see how these are an upgrade to the HAFX1X, in my opinion the bass in these particular headphones is inferior and I would highly recommend from buying; unless have an equalizer on your phone to change it to bass boosting mode.
Summary: I like the ear pieces, they're slightly skewed so they follow the ear canal. Comfort is fine. The soft cups are interchangeable.The wire is quite hard and does seem to get tangled easily. Can't expect too much from the low price. I can't work out how the volume control is supposed to work.
