  • Summary: I bought these headphones a while back now and they have recently began buzzing. Sound is mushy through them and you can't really hear anything clearly. The bass is nice for dubstep and movie watching, but they trick you by being incredibly unbalanced. Watching inception, the "BWAAAUUUH" is extremely loud, but the dialogue is near impossible to hear. Don't buy them expecting much, you can get headphones with deeper bass as well as better overall sonics for $20 less.
  • Pros: Decent Bass, comfy earcups, style may appeal to some
  • Cons: Sound is "mushy", short cable, overpriced

Great sound for the price, but ultimately a painful experience.

  • Summary: I Purchased these headphones a while back and I am still impressed with the sound and noise isolation For the price range I don't think you can get better in terms of pure un-adulterated sound. The drivers are huge and punchy with sound isolation that performed well. Their industrial heavy duty appearance looks good also (when you aren't wearing them) However... They are absolutely huge in size and look unbelievably ridiculous when worn.

Great value for money

  • Summary: I was seeking inexpensive around ear headphones and purchased these based on other reviews. For value for money, these do not disappoint by any means. They don't cancel background noise, so they may not be as good outdoors or on public transport, however the volume and quality is more then sufficient when I want to listen to music while sitting at my desk at work.

  • Summary: Firstly, these cans do indeed pack some bass and the design is pretty cool, but that's about the only positives I can find with them. I suppose they aren't very expensive there is that, but in this case you get what you pay for. Stereo separation is awful, the mid-ranges and top end are squashed and muffled, bass although prominent is muddy and just feels sloppy.

Gob Smacked!!

Ross Nevin, Amazon

  • Summary: Wow, I am amazed I never review products but this one I had to! I thought that when I bought these, the bass would completely overkill the treble and all other sounds but no! These headphones are incredibly balanced out, so perfectly that any high quality music you put through these will be amazing! They fit perfectly around your head and ears, with very comfy cushions on the pads and at the top of the bridge between each speaker.

  • Summary: Product bought for 11 yr old son to listen to music/ laptop background music. With other products could hear what was happening but these stop noise leaking out. The ear pads are comfortable to wear, although my sons ears do get a bit warm sometimes. Prompt service, nice looking product. Probably a little bulky to wander around outside the home in but thats only because I have a really small head and they look a bit daft on me!

  • Summary: Was hoping for it too have more bass and just to be better than the in ear ones but turned out they weren't. For the price you can't really complain although they are too big so you won't really wear them outside.

JVC HAM5X Xtreme Xplosives Around Ear Headphone

Carl, just journeying through, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: They give a nice rich sound and don't need the sound to be turned to max to get your ears to bleed (slight exaggeration but they are LOUD) I don't look as cute as the girl with the long review but my wife loves me and my mum thinks I'm beautiful.
