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 phone.... Never had that before.... Spend the extra money and buy some more expensive headphones...
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. by the 3rd week it was stopping and cutting out parts of the song due to connection. :/ Great sounding but bad cabling.
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. They deliver "Extreme Explosive" bass and really emphasize the low frequencies in your music and withstand it outstandingly. Basically, they're brilliant for bass freaks.
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. You may get a decent set eventually, but id probably hold off or find them in your local supermarket if you don't want the hassle.
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. It's hinged at one end, not in the middle like a seesaw, and nothing seems to happen when I use it.
Summary: I read lots of reviews on these on the internet, so had high hopes. Sound wise, they are ok but not as great as people some to thing (obviously my own opinion). My biggest issue is with the size of the in ear and the stiffness of the cord. I use them in the gym and while cycling and they constantly come out. Recently purchased a new pair and the difference in this is unbelievable.
