    Okay, but not great

    These earbuds are just okay. My daughter lost my nice Sony ones I've had for a few years, so I thought I'd try these since the price was right. I use them with my iPhone when I'm doing yard work. The cord is not configured very well and always pulls more on the left ear than the right. They also don't fit very snugly around the ear. It does come with 3 different size buds you can attach, though, and the larger ones helped keep them in my ear better. The sound quality is average. Better than stock iPhone buds, but still a little muddy.

    Got these little beauties to wear when jogging because my old ear buds always bounced out. These do not! The ear piece actually sits just outside your ear so outside noise can come in, which is, again, useful while jogging or working out so you can keep track of your surroundings. Sound quality is good, not much bass to speak of but enough for most music and still good for ear bud styles!

    Breaks after a few months

    These headphones HAD good sound quality and we're pretty comfortable in the ears but thethe left side decided to stop working after only 4 months. This is absolutely ridiculous. I expect a pair of earbuds to last at least a year but for them to only last a quarter of the year is awful. Otherwise it would be getting a better review but I can't recommend a product that breaks so fast.

    Adequate for intended use

    I purchased these specifically for use at the gym. I try not to spend a lot on gym headphones because I'm going to end up breaking them at some point. I've finally learned that lesson after trashing my $100 Sony mp3 player/headphone unit. These have adequate sound, although distort badly on heavy bass. The cord looks very cheap and flimsy. This will give out at some point. I think these would be sufficient for most people who do not demand high-end sound quality. They're OK for gym and mowing the lawn.

    Excellent Earbuds

    These are prfect they actually fit my ear - all the other were too big and would pop out and if i was jogging I spent more time fixing the earbuds than jogging. These buds are perfect they fit my ear and with the over ear holder its perfect even after i start to seriously perspire, they stay put. no more stopping to fix. Also the sound is great, great bass, great teble, great balance, execellent sound. I have used them on my laptop and mp3 player (yes i still have one of those lol), perfect every time. I love them!

    Sound is good, asymmetric cord bad

    I was looking to replace my previous over the ear buds that I ran through the washing machine and these were similar in design to my previous JVC buds. What i didn't notice on the package was the asymmetric cord length connecting the ear buds. I get the idea of the design, however in practice the different lengths are annoying, particularly if the device they're plugged into is not in an arm band or pocket. This is more of a comment on the design as I'm aware they are inexpensive ear buds.

    Just What I Needed

    I've had these for a year and a half, use them 3-5 times a week for running or other workouts. I have trouble getting earbuds to fit properly and find I need the ear hook style--but hate spending a lot of money on something that is going to get thrown in my gym bag and who knows if it will work well anyway? But, these have held up nicely, fit my ears well, have decent enough sound. Only complaint is how easily the cord gets tangled. But, that's a minor issue for me.

    Wanted a pair of headphones that I could put in my ears but the ones that just stick in your ear fall out of my ears too easily. These wrap around your ear and hold the earbud part in place. The sound quality is decent but they are a little too big for my ears so they don't fit great. That is the reason I only gave them 4 stars instead of 5. For the money though they are a good buy and I will continue using these until I find ones at this price that fit better!

    My MP3 player was having issues and I thought it was my headphones, turns out it was the connection on the MP3 player. I bought these headphones as a test and once I found out it was the MP3 player and not the headphones I bought a new MP3 player, which I have reviewed, and returned the headphones. I would say this review is not so much for the product but the great customer service Best Buy offers in exchanges, I had absolutely no issues brining these back and trading them for a new MP3 player.

    They Do What I need them to do

    I use these at work and they send noise to my ears as needed. I would not use these for working out for my own personal reasons. I think the design is interesting/different. Whether or not it's useful that's up to you. It has a really long right chord and a short left chord. So it hangs on your left which is kind of odd. Again, I don't use chords while working out, so this is out of the question. But for sitting down and listening to music, they get the job done. Not the best quality, but it works.

    Pretty Good Headphones

    I purchased these on impulse. I was confused with the short cord on the left side and long cord on the right side, but figured it out after reading the package. I love these headphones for sitting and listening, but when I'm up and moving doing things (housework, mowing lawn, gardening, etc) they tend to slide out of my ears easily which is quite annoying, especially with wet dishes hands or dirt covered hands and trying to put them back in. Overall, they're pretty good.

    Solid Head Phones

    These are very solid head phones at a very reasonable price. They produce a quality sound, without pinching on the ears (at least mine). The whole design is soft and quite comfortable, I should mention I have bee told I have large ears. My only negative is that they tend to fill the ear channel too well blocking out a lot of sound which makes it difficult to use them while running on roads, since you cannot hear the traffic as well. They would be great for drowning out annoying gym music though.

    When I ride a bike I like to listen to my music and my problem is that my headphones kept popping out in the middle of me writing so I wanted to get some scrap on ones that are connected with a wire to my backpack that would pull out of my ears these have been great I haven't had any troubles with them it's not too noisy canceling either so I can hear my surroundings and cars and stuff like that but and also I sweat a lot and it hasn't interfered with the mower music

    I actually love these earphones, they are my favorite earbuds I buy them every time. And what I love about them is they have a great hook that goes over your ear so whenever I’m working out I never have to worry about them coming off. The other thing is that the sound quality is excellent. Better than any other headphone I’ve seen besides the Bose 35 series 2 and the Pro 500 Series, which are basically the best so pretty dang good.

    Good headphones

    I purchased these for running. My previous headphones would fall out of my ear every 5 seconds which was extremely frustrating. These stay put! No matter what I do in the gym or on the track, these remain in my ear. They sound great. My only reason for not giving them 5 stars is because it doesn't have the capability to answer or make a phone call (no microphone). I also can't adjust the volume. This is not a defect, I should have read more carefully.

    Good sound - while they lasted

    Bought these as replacements for a pair of JVC earphones I'd had for several years. The sound quality was great, much improved over the old set. However, I am now sorry I bought them. Didn't last 6 months before the right side died. I only used them at the gym while on the elliptical machines, so they weren't stressed by running or other outdoor activities. Yet they did not hold up. So I junked them and bought two pair online from another manufacturer.

    Interesting ear buds...

    Although the sound quality is very good for these earbuds, the wiring, namely the length of the wiring, leaves a lot to be desired. The left ear bud has a considerably shorter wire than the right, the reason being described as having your music player clipped to your left side. Well, for a runner this just doesn't work. The left side kept pulling out of my ear as I ran, to the point I just tucked the left earbud in my shirt. I'm sitll trying to figure out a work around.

    I like these earbuds. The clip is comfortable and keeps them in their place even during my workouts and running, which is where I use them most often. The sound quality is good and when properly inserted have a good low end. My only complaint is the jack that comes out of the player at a 90 degree angle. In the past I have found that this set up will eventually cause the wire to break. I like them enough to have bought a second pair as a back up.

    Granted, headphones are an incredibly difficult item to characterize for everybody, because everybody's ears are just a little bit different, but these seem to be a good fit for working out and similar activities. If you're bouncing around and need decent sound and a low price, these should be acceptable. JVC tend to prioritize volume over quality, so don't expect an audiophile experience - you do get what you pay for. Good value.

    I have been looking for a good sounding pair of earbuds for my workouts. I was tired of expensive BT headsets that couldn't withstand the sweat I put out. I don't need audiophile quality sound, but I am a musician, so I need these to sound at least good/excellent. So far, I've been very pleased. You have to push the buds all the way in to get good bass, but once you do, these sound great. They absolutely stay put in even the most arduous workouts.
