Ive had these before, really really good earphones ive tryed beats before and i dont think they are far off that kind of quality at all! If you want some buds the 100% get these. You have my word.

Gosh. X. X cheep. Hot never posted before

Good price for quality earphones.

have them. good sound quality and reliable as well. hot

Cheapest I've ever seen them! HOT! Nice find OP.

Dont think it includes post and packing which could make it a few quid more expensive than normal

very good price, i should buy these as backups

For those that have this, how does it do with sound leaking?

Thanks

Bargain!

Can anyone tell me how good these are at keeping the sound in?

So do Beats actually have quality? I always thought they were overpriced, as you expect that with popular, well-branded products, but the opinion of HUKD seems to be that they are the worst headphones in production at the moment. Can anyone resolve this?

These are good buds but in my opinion it really depends what you're listening to because these are VERY basey if there's such a word.I listen to all kinds of music but when I'm listening to more vocal based music I tend to go for some different ones.

Better time than ever to start my prime free trail with the minimum £10 order. Needed a decent pair since the crappy skull candies packed up. Appreciated thank you

Got them for £8.78 by ordering with some PS3 triggers to get free delivery. Possibly worth it.

I dunno what to get now because someone posted a pair of Sony earphone with inline volume control and they seem good as well.

I have a pair of these and the sound quality is really good but... I hate the way the buds stick right into your ear and it makes you hear yourself breathing, is it just me that finds this irritating?

I'd recommend spending a further £2.30 on amazon to qualify for free delivery.

Without being really sarcastic as most retards on here. Once music is playing you can't hear breathing. These types of headphones allow you to listen at lower DB than normal ones. Preserving your hearing in the long run

I personally think they're good quality - the quality just isn't good enough to justify the price. It's really the style and branding you pay for rather than the actual sound quality. oO

Guys, i have got a question?
I have got HTC one x phone and it does not support the normal headphones apart from the beats or its original headphone that comes with it.By not supporting i meant the sound that the normal headphones create is really weird i don't really know how to explain.I hope you guys may know what i mean.So is this headphone going to be any good for my HTC One X or not?
Thanks in advance.

This isn't a bargain anymore. Why is everyone buying at this price when you can get it cheaper elsewhere? For example eBay. If Amazon the way you go then I'd advise waiting as this is the standard rate these go at now. Some people buy whatever they see and get told that's a deal. Seriously.

I did the same thing Wednesday they came Friday, the earphones are nothing special but do the job and are fairly decent for holding the sound in.

If you own beats quite simply you are a sheep. Hailing to a fashion icon. If you really cared about the sound and build quality you'd do some research into quality headphones.

Only pence cheaper if you can't get the delivery free I've just looked. So I am seriously serious

Unless you are ordering more stuff, its cheaper to spend over a tenner and get free delivery. Bought these last week, £10.99 and available in a variety of colours.

As for the headphones themselves, they are OK. Not as good as Sennheiser but much cheaper. Don't know about this pair but the one I received also has remote on there to skip track and answer calls if you have a compatible device, tried on Nexus 4 and Samsung S3 and both are compatible.

If you can find out which one you brought I'll be happy to know!

Got these when they were on here before for £10. they sound good but not as good as the £5 monoprice ones. they have bigger drivers in them and better bass

JVC HAFX1X Trustedreviews Review



Thanks, the Amazon reviews (1&2 stars) also helped.
I was about to buy them and the reviews have put me off.

CheckerJay

Not really, no. Are some people born with cotton wool in their ears?

Earphones for the mass who listen to chart music and know nothing about audio.

If you've used some earphones that cost in the £30-£50 range, you can't use these without being disappointed every time.

I bought a pair of these as they've been highly recommended on other sites I use too but I don't quite get the hype, Found them pretty disappointing, although they do give more bass.
I got some Skull Candy Heavy Medal ones from TK Maxx for £20 and they are absolute light years ahead of these in quality.

Details: Bass-heavy budget earphone from JVC’s Xtreme Xplosives l … Details: Bass-heavy budget earphone from JVC’s Xtreme Xplosives lineCurrent Price: $18 from amazon.com (MSRP: $19.95); $29.95 for HA-FR201 model w/micSpecs: Driver: Dynamic | Imp: 16Ω | Sens: 101 dB | Freq: 5-20k Hz | Cable: 3.9' I-plugNozzle Size: 5mm | Preferred tips: Stock single-flangesWear Style: Straight down or over-the-earAccessories (1/5) - Single-flange silicone tips (3 sizes)Build Quality (3.5/5) – The design of the FX101 resembles the older FX1X and features plastic housings with rubber bumpers, paper nozzle filters, and a thin, plasticky cable. The cord lacks a sliding cinch but carries minimal noise and terminates with a well-relieved I-plugIsolation (3/5) – Good for an angled-nozzle designMicrophonics (4.5/5) – Low in the soft and flexible cableComfort (4/5) – The fit is generally similar to JVC’s higher-end FX500 model but the rubber-sheathed housings may be a little large for over-the-ear wear for those with smaller ears. Cord-down wear is very comfortable with the angled-nozzle form factor and the shells are smaller compared to the older FX1XSound (6.2/10) – JVC’s follow-up to the popular FX1X model, the FX101 has no trouble delivering on promises of copious bass despite its smaller 8.5mm drivers. Its low end is not as loose as that of the older FX1X model and yet the FX101 sacrifices nothing in the way of impact or bass depth. Its bass puts it among the hardest-hitting in-ears on the market, though as usual the low end grunt comes at a price. The bass is on the boomy side compared to sets such as the Philips SHE3580 and can be very intrusive. Happily, the FX101 probably won’t be purchased by those looking for anything less than a bass monster.The real strength of the FX101 is in retaining good overall sound characteristics despite its massive low end and miniscule price tag. The clarity is quite good for something so bassy – it lags behind the JVC FX40, Brainwavz Beta, and Soundmagic E10 but easily beats the MEElectronics M9 and most other entry-level sets. The sound tends to be a little warm and dark. The signature is v-shaped, with strong bass emphasis and a milder treble boost. Bass bleed helps the FX101 sound a bit less recessed in the midrange compared to the Brainwavz Beta and JVC HA-FX40. As with the FX40, the colored signature of the FX101 works especially well with electronic music and can be hit or miss with recorded instruments.Treble is somewhat harsh and not very refined compared to higher-end sets. It can accentuate sibilance and doesn’t extend all the way up, resulting in a darker sound compared to sets such as the Soundmagic E10 and Brainwavz Beta. The presentation is above average in its price class – not as wide as that of the Brainwavz Beta but better compared to the MEElectronics M9. The darker tone of the FX101 also prevents it from sounding as open and airy as the Soundmagic E10, which also boasts a better sense of space. Still, the FX101 has nothing to be ashamed of for the price and has another piece of mass appeal up its sleeve – efficiency. The FX101 plays louder than just about anything I put it up against and will crank out the bass even at low listening volumes.Value (9.5/10) – Comfortable, well-built, and not at all microphonic, the FX101 is a bargain that should cause the bass-obsessed to salivate profusely. The bass-heavy sound means that these are far from the most neutral or natural-sounding earphones, but they deliver on the fun factor without sounding offensive - a definite win for their intended audience.Pros: Well-built; comfortable; minimal cable noise; tons of bassCons: Treble can be harsh; tons of bass
