    JVC Ear Clip-on Earbud Headphones

    I am a very small woman. The usual earbuds don't stay in my ears, so in recent years, I have been wearing clip-on earbud headphones. I didn't want to pay a lot of money for them, and this was the best lowest price I could find. (It's also pretty hard to find ear clip-on earbuds. I can't figure that out.) They are excellent for sound. The one weird thing is that one of the cables is much longer than the other; it took me a while to understand that the reason is because you pull that cable around the back of your neck to put the earbud in your right ear. The only negative thing is that the cable that attaches to my mp3 is very, very long (it doesn't need to be, at least for me).

    Stay in Your Ears!

    These style of heaphones/earbuds won't fall out of your ears while exercising or moving constantly. The y hook around your ear so you won't have to worry about them popping out constantly which from experience is quite annoying. They also feel snug and don't hurt your ears. The sound quality is not as good as over the ear style headphones, but it's not that bad really. Bought these mainly for working out at the gym or walking/running outside and they do the job. They also allow you to wrap the cord behind your neck so the wire won't get hooked onto anything. Made my decision after reading plenty of reviews for reasonably priced headphones on BestBuy.com. These were the style of headphones that I was looking for!

    The sound is fine for the gym, but these tangle more than any other set of wired headphones I've ever had for some reason. I don't like that the left side wire is shorter than the right, although I understand the reasoning behind it. It should be adjustable and you should also be able to slide the plastic up to hold the headphones together when not in use to prevent the tangling. They're also not as comfortable as the rubber JVC headphones I used to have. I wouldn't buy these again, or probably any hard plastic wrap-arounds.

    Decent ear buds

    I'm satisfied with them but gave them 3 stars out of 5. The ear piece itself that clips/hangs on to the ear doesn't have quite the design that it should. It definitely isn't made for everyone's ear, however, I felt the clips should have been designed better. It didn't really mold with the shape of the ear, therefore, causing the clip to somewhat come off or loosen a bit and I would have to constantly reinforce them back on my ear. It just sort of got annoying after a while. The package comes with different size ear buds that could be adjusted by taking them off and replacing it with a different ear bud to suit the size of your ear hole. Overall, good quality and no background noise.

    These work fine but the wire is annoying.

    I buy headphones with ear wraps to exercise. My ears fit most earbuds poorly and they just slide out when i start to sweat. The ear wrap keeps them in place. These particular headphones have a nice soft plastic ear piece that fits snugly yet comfortably in my ear and feels like they would stay in even without the wraps and also blocks outside noises. The only problem I have with them is one wire is longer than the other, so the wire lays on one side of your body instead of down the middle. I don't know what advantage this would give but it makes it annoying to wrap up when Im done and also i seem to get caught on the wire more than my old pair which had even length wires.

    A passable earphone for moderately active users

    I purchased this earbud on a whim. Found them to be functional, Sound quality is similar to most low fi earphones on the market today. Has a good enough bass and treble with the highs not so clear. For the price this is a good buy. I would have rated 4 stars but cannot since this earphone does not meet its primary functional requirement - staying in place during active workout. I found that the loops that go behind the ear do not really help keep the earphone secure in the ear canal. There is no way to tighten the loops or adjust it so that it fits more snugly. I found moderate activity could dislodge the earphone although it stays on the ear due to the loops.

    I have a set of Aftershokz headphones that I absolutely adore using when I'm in the car driving or out walking the dog. However, I have two teenage musicians in the house - one who produces music and the other who records metalcore. When they are both recording and creating at the same time - the decibel level in this house is ear-splitting. I literally have to leave the house to sit in the car for some peace and quiet. Since I bought these headphones; however, oh. my. gosh. I can actually listen to what I want to listen to and drown out the rest of the noise in the house. Thank you!

    Great fit / not so great quality.

    Bought 2 different pairs to use while running. Regular earbuds fall out to easily. I prefer the fit of the JVC because the hook is easer to place on the ear and the bud where the sound comes from fits nice & snuggle in my ear. However, after a few week the sound quality deteriorated. The volume is all the way up on my phone, but what I hear from the JVC's is very very low. After that, the right ear bud completely went out. I did buy the insurance, so I will be taking them back. I paid the higher price for these hoping for better quality but was disappointed.

    I have a small ear canal on one side and have a hard time finding ear buds to fit with the supplied rubber tips so there are times when having the ability to hook the buds to the ear is desirable, such as power walking, listening while nodding off.... I could not get the one ear to fit properly in the one side but the clip compensated. JVC is known for great sound and these buds are no exception. Clear and crisp mid and highs, excellent lows and, overall, a very comfortable fit. Worth the few bucks and well suited for runners, power walkers or someone using buds for hours at a time.

    Doesn't fit with my iPod, but works well otherwise

    The earphones are great...well. I love the clip, it's handy when you're only using one ear/ when you need to keep the wire close. Sound is good when you get it. However, the box said it fit with all Apple products. To be honest, that was the main reason I sprung for these because of the trouble I've been having with many headphones for the iPod. It doesn't fit with my iPod (at all). And with my Phone (which is only a 5, many headphones work great with it) it's a tricky fit and it is always more static than sound. I use them at home on my Mac now, because that seems to be the only Apple product it does actually work with.

    I needed a new set of headphones after my old ones died out due to the jack connection wire got loose. these were the cheapest ones in the store. So far they work and haven't given me issues. I don't like how the wire for the left piece is short and the right piece has a long wire. I guess it's meant to be worn a certain way. I appreciate that the plastic clips hold the ear pieces in place as I run/jog, for the price I paid, these better last me along time. so far... they're doing their job aren't special and not giving me anything really awesome for a review.

    The wire to the left earbud is too short, the wire to the right ear bud is too long. My guess is that somebody thought this would be clever for people who used these on a device carried on the left side. Maybe if they sold it explicitly saying so, and offered a corresponding version for the other side. Or an even cleverer idea- make the wires to both earbuds the same length, so they work EITHER way! Wow! And yet, in spite of all that, I've been using these more than any of my other earbuds lately. They fit well, they sound reasonably good. They're okay.

    Perfect for the treadmill

    My doctor insisted I do some exercise. So, I joined a gym and the last thing I do in my routine is about 20 - 25 minutes on a treadmill. Yes, it's boring, but there is a TV on it and these earbuds allow me to hear it, making the time on the machine a little easier to endure. I'm glad I got the ones with the ear clips, as I have always had trouble keeping plain ones from popping out of my ears. Good investment!

    We purchase these for stocking stuffers EVERY year. So the kids have a stockpile of them... Not that they don't last, but at these prices WHO doesn't need new earbuds?? They are comfy & easy on the ears. The little piece that goes in your ear sometimes comes off, but that was the main complaint prior to this year. For whatever reason, this year they changed them from being symmetrical (same length to each ear), to one having to go around the back of your head. Whatever. Minor annoyance for us that some people probably like. We will continue to get these. Highly recommend! Great for gift exchanges, too!

    If you run, you know there are a ton of these in ear headphones out there. I didn't want to spend a lot and for the price they are a great value. A lot of these cost way more and it's kind of ridiculous in my opinion. Somehow prices on headphones have gone up from a time they used to be much less expensive. But anyway, these work great, they stay in my ear. They aren't too expensive. I don't invest a lot in headphones because I know they are prone to damage, I will not pay more than a given amount for any headphones. I got these because they look like they stay in your ear, and they do.

    Surprisingly good earbuds.

    My primary interest was in getting earbuds that had a sport-style ear loop to prevent the buds from falling out of my ears while running, but I was impressed with the sound quality of these. They are noise-canceling, which was new for me, and I loved it. That resulted in a deeply satisfying low end (as in bass). After about a year, they started to lose a little in the overall sound quality, as if the volume was dropping off. I had purchased the replacement warranty, and got a new pair, no questions asked. I will buy them again.

    Cord too long

    The cord is 4 feet long from the jack to one of the ear pieces, the other ear piece adds another foot of cord. That's right one ear piece extends out further. I find these earbuds too much trouble to keep them untangled. I know I can tie them up into a butterfly knot, but there are other ear buds made so they don't have to be treated in any special way for use. I don't use these earbuds. They're stashed away for an emergency till I can buy something I can enjoy using. I guess if you need an extra long cord, this is it.

    I needed a quick replacement pair of headphones for working out. The "sport" label on the box made me think these would do the trick. Well, they were okay. The ear hook is a big must for me, and these aren't comfortable after longer than 45 minutes. The ear buds kept working their way out as my workout went on, but I could still hear well enough. After 2 weeks, the sound quality started deteriorating. Another week after that, the left ear bud was pretty much shot. I wish I could be more upset, but they were $10. What do you expect?

    Great cheap/inexpensive ear buds - I wanted both plug in and wireless headphones for running, walking, etc. These were only $14.99 and well worth every cent - the sound is GREAT. If you don't want to spend a lot of $$ buy these. Also one side's wire length is longer than the other - which is intentional to facilitate you putting your ipod, phone etc in a pocket so if you want wired ear buds that have both wire lengths equal these are not for you. For me they're just fine. :)

    Great Headphones for the Gym

    These over the ear headphones are great for the gym. They stay in your ear for most activities in the gym. The regular buds will not stay in my ear which is really irritating when i am running and/or jumping. The only issue I have with the JVC Sport Clip is it competes for space over my ear with my prescription glasses when i am performing vigorous activities. If you have issues with regular buds staying in your ear, these will meet your needs. In addition to being comfortable, the sound is crisp and the bass, which I love, is awesome.
