I am definitely a fanatic about how my music sounds. I won't really listen to anything that doesn't have an equalizer that I've set up. But I must say that these sound incredible. With the right EQ you can get them to sound extremely close to the beats studio. Definitely the best earbuds I've tried and they sound as good/better than stuff in the $100+ range. They also make great gifts :D

Beats? What are Beats, they have nothing on these JVC's! The clarity and the bass response is amazing. I have heard the Beats earbuds and they don't come close. These are great earbuds! Definitely can handle anything to put them through, all types of music and have great quality sound on high or low volume!

Given the low cost, I honestly purchased them as a "back up" for travel. However, after using them for a while I found them superior to my other "high end" buds costing 3X what these cost. Now these are my primary buds, and the much more expensive ones have been relegated to "back up."

I have owned these earbuds for about 6 months now, and WOW, this is a spectacular product! These are the best earbuds for $20 and compete with $100 dollar earbuds! The sound is great from them... The bass is atrocious! Overall, I paid $20 and got the best $20 I spent! Get them if you want a good pair of earbuds; you will not be disappointed!

I've tried a few cheap pairs of headphones from W****** that were pretty bad for $10-$15. I even ordered Powerbeats - Beats by Dre from another website. That pair was good, but definitely not worth $125. I actually blew the right speaker bud up. So I bought JVC Xtreme Xplosives for a reasonable $30. I can honestly say hands down, these are Great.
Sound is great. You don't have to turn it up to hear it. The price is completely justified. Totally Worth It!

I like these ear phones. The soft ear "buds" are good for me, since I have difficulty retaining the hard kind in my ears - they fall out. Nice little case to keep the earphones in when traveling or not using. Good sound for the price.

These headphones are amazing. They remind me of a flat frequency response studio monitor, it may be a little harsh in the upper mids but in a "goodish" way. Once they are broken in after about 50 hours of listening time they mellow out and then become the best headphones even if you paid 5 times the price. Great flat response, great tight bass and oh boy are they nice and loud without sounding distorted like the cheaper counterparts do. The only con is that you can't really sleep with them, they stick out.

in first two weeks i thought that it's not for a rock music because headphones has a lot of buzzing bass, and more treble, but has blockage in the midrange.
because of this, guitar sounded not natural and voice was muted.
over time of use (about 2 weeks) frequency response curve has returned to normal and sound becomes well.
also headphones have a good option: cable does not get tangled.
overall i am happy with this purchase.

These headphones are comfortable to wear, have nice sound quality, seem like they're nice and sturdy (ie. the have stout cable and no accessible tiny parts) and are quite reasonably priced for the quality. At first I wished they had a built-in volume control, but later I was glad they don't because it's an unnecessary part that can break that will make the headphones useless. These are very good.
