      Great earphones

      Oh the XX's. They look really dope well just for me it has a lot of colours and I got mine blue with a lot of extensions for ears. So you can adjust these bad boys with your ears. It has a really nice quality of sound and it is of the really great quality material made. I would recommend everyone these X's. They are not that expensive if you want some good quality sound and music hearing. So if you do enjoy the music then this is definetly for you. The price is going for about £ 10 which is really great for this quality. It is comfortable and it is light and portable. They are small so you can carry them whereever you want. You could not get away better. It is cheap and really great quality and portable. Just enjoy the music people with these bad boys.

        great

        these headphones are ok for their price now , but originally they cost around the £15 mark which for these headphones they are not worth it; This is due to the fact that they always fall out of your ears whilst walking or even sitting down on the bus or the tube , seems to be done more on the train due to the movement of the train and the tunnels. Sound quality is crisp and clear , there is no doubt that the sound is bad with these headphones , bass boost on these headphones is also great and you can really hear the different harmonies within each song which makes these earphones very unique for their price. This earphone is a great backup in ear headphones as they are made of solid products and the cable is not tangle free but these headphones do not seem to tangle up when in use , which is key whilst on the train and taking them out of pockets. A benefit about these in ear headphones is that it comes with a black plastic case that you should keep your headphones within that will save them from being tangled up within pockets and on the desks and tables, this plastic also helps you carry the headphones without fear of loosing the plastic in ear section which can be very annoying when having one headphone in and the other out, this is possibly a unique way of storing your headphones that i have seen till this date , i know that EJay's also have a fabric pouch which is also helpful from keeping the cables from being tangled up. These in ear headphones do definitely Xplode in your ears as the bass boost as mentioned before is mad in a good way , having very heavy bass songs will show off these headphones for sure. Overall great product and will purchase again if mine ever brake or if i lose them (:

        great priced headphones great sound quality too

        as the tech lover in my household it is almost certain that my family and friends come to me for advice on what to buy and my sister wanted some headphones and asked me about these but i had not heard of these before so i was a bit reluctant to buying these but i did not want to spend my time reading reviews online so i purchased a pair for myself from ebay for around £11 which is excellent value for a pair of headphones. upon arrival of the headphones i was not expecting much from these as i thought the price would reflect on the quality but i was actually impressed with these as they came just like many other headphones with spare buds and a carry case. From the looks of these not knowing the price i would have said they look excellent and its price range would be around £35 as they do look quite premium and have a good feel to them the wire feels nice and solid compared to a pair of £2 headphones from local shops and i must say they wire on them felt cheap whereas this felt strong and durable which what you want from headphones as most people keep them in pockets just like i do and if the wire is cheap the it will snap from the inside which is not what you want to happen, after a few months use i can confirm that these are durable and the wire is still intact. coming onto the sound quality which is not all too good in terms of bass it is not as deep as these claim to be as compared to maybe sonys offering from the XB (xtra bass) range but having said that these are for £12 so taking into account the price of these i really cannot fault them on anything as you cannot expect a Ferrari for ford money same with these you cannot expect sony XB's or beats for £12.

          Great value

          Introduction: Music is my passion, I have music playing for most of the day on my iPhone. I needed some new headphones as my old ones were getting a bit bad, they had been through the wash etc! I had a look online for headphones which have a good amount of bass and these showed up widely on the Internet! I ended up purchasing these from amaZon as they were offering the cheapest price on the market at the time. I will now go into more detail on this product Price: I paid £10.48 for these, they currently are £12 and on some other websites much more. The cheapest place to get these is amazon. They were delivered quickly from amaZon and packaged very well. Overall these were a great price compared to others i saw with a similar spec. Good?: These are excellent, the sound quality is great and the bass is crisp and clear. I was surprised at how good the bass was. They can cope with most songs easily. The only problem with these headphones is that due to the good bass, some High end sound is lost and also some songs are over powered with bass! I would say these headphones are perfect for anyone who loves bass and would like this to be the main feature in there music. Style: The style is great, the cable is red on my headphones which is trendy and stands out from the rest. There are other colours available on Amazon, but red was my favourite. The actual ear piece is rather large, it can get in the way sometimes, it's something you have to get used to as they feel big in your ear. Overall: These headphones are great value an perform well for the price. I would recommend these to anyone who needs a new pair of headphones for a good price! Good for the younger generation as bass is loud. I would pay much more for these than I did. These get 5 stars from me!!

          Fraction of the cost of other big names- and very reasonable!

          I purchased these headphones to use for my Samsung SII and listen to some tunes. As an avid music lover I wanted some headphones that could stand up to the music- being able to handle bass and beats! Tech Spec- the details - Gold plated 3.5mm plug - noise reduction - ergonomic and contoured - durable Price I purchased these for £15 from Amazon just before 4-5months ago- an absolute bargain! For the sound quality and the build of the ear phones, I really can't believe they are only £15. Buy them for that price alone! Checking on Amazon they are around £12 so cheaper again. Presentation The look of the headphones are actually great, they are black earphones with a red wire, the red wire is really thick and the attachments feel sturdy. The earphones seem quite robust and able to handle daily use as I have had them for 4-5mths and use them frequently. The earphones come with a black travel box, so for anybody like me who gets a bit frustrated with the wire getting tangled up, this box can come in handy. It is black, small and very compact. Sound Quality The music quality is really good, there isn't much of a static noise on the headphones and they can handle some pretty heavy beats- from hip-hop and rap to rock and heavy metal, the sound doesn't get lost in these headphones. Comfort The reason I buy in-ear headphones instead of big and bulky headphones is that I find them uncomfortable over my upper ear piercing. These in-ear headphones remedy this and are reasonably comfortable. However, after maybe an hour it can get tender in my inner ear, maybe my own fault for enjoying my music, for a fraction of the cost, I can overlook this negative! Also included in the ear-phones are an additional set of silicone ear covers- a nice addition. Overall Good quality, good price, BARGAIN! I would definitely recommend and I will buy again for a gift as I actually think they are brilliant quality at an affordable price. I am giving this item 5 stars, as for the price and the quality, it seems that it is a superb buy.

          Very good value headphones for the price.

          I got these headphones as a replacement for a pair of beats headphones which were fairly expensive (around £80) that got lost. I didn't have the same amount of money available and didn't want rubbish headphones. These were £25 which seemed reasonable so I went for these. The sound quality, although not as good as the beats, was surprisingly very very good quality. They are very bassy and have a good overall tone. They look and feel good, come with a case and spare ear pieces of different sizes. Only downside is the head phones on the end of the cable area little chunky but once in you dont really notice this. I would recommend these head phones to any one wanting a good quality pair of head phones that produce a good sound but do not have the money to pay for a really expensive pair. These would suit someone in that position. (Like myself!)

            Good quality at a low cost.

            I bought the JVC Xtreme Bass earphones because i listen to a lot of bass heavy music and wanted to be able to have earphones that have a lot bass so I don't have to carry around headphones with me all the time. Price I bought these earphones for about £25 and I thought that I would get some average quaility headphones but they look high end and sound great for the price. Unfortunately though I had to get mine from America so they took about a fortnight to arrive but it was worth the wait. Looks/Quality These earphones are made of plastic and come with a plastic carry case. Personally I don,t like the carry case as its bulky and it looks cheap, so I don't use it. The headphones look great and are red and black. The cable they come with is durable but tangles quite easily in my pocket but that cant really be avoided. The earpieces themselves are very big and they might not be for everyone, luckily they are not heavy as they are made of plastic and they come with 3 different sizes of earbuds. Audio Quality The audio quality is the main reason to buy these earphones as it fantastic for the price. They blew the standard apple headphone I have out the water in terms of quality and bass levels. There is very little sound leakage and you cant hear any of your surroundings when listening to them. When listening to drum and bass or dubstep earphones excel and they are good for rap music to. Conclusion If you want high quality at a low cost look no further as these extreme bass headphones tick all the right boxes for music lovers.

            Awesome headphones, rivalling those way above its price tag.

            A short while ago I purchased a shiny new phone, one with 16GB of memory for my entire music collection. Then I thought, what's the point of having all these great songs at my disposal when they sound so poor through my cheap and nasty headphones (you know the ones you get free with new phones), so I made the decision to invest in a bit of quality, having a good idea of the top most reputable brands, I set out on a mission to find some high quality, well made headphones for less than £50. What I eventually bought were some £25 headphones that were better than anything I expected for double that price. The JVC HA-FX1X Extreme Explosives.... The first thing you'll notice about these is the bold design and oversized buds (due to the massive 10mm driver) mine are black rubber and look awesome I have to say. They do stick out of your ears quite alot, and you kind of look as though your about to be brought back to life by a certain fictional scientist but despite this they stay in the ear very well. As for the lead its an unapologetically bright red, which give them a bit of attitude and just let you know that these headphones aren't your average set. One rule for headphone wire is the thicker the cable the better the quality. Much to my surprise these were incredibly thick, and not only that but pure copper! Very rare at this price (£25) and much better at delivering clean signal transfer. Now onto build quality, as far as I'm concerned these bad boys are indestructible, and whilst I'm reluctant to test my theory it has to be said that these really are the toughest headphones I've ever bought or even seen for that matter. The lead is fastened firm to the buds and I even dared to give it a good hard tug to be sure, as for the buds themselves, these are rock-solid! They have a kind of half rubber half plastic finish and seem to be moulded out of granite. As with all cushioned ear-piece type headphones the caps are prone to coming off now and then, however I was grateful for the three different sizes they give you (small/medium/large) for different ear types/sizes, be sure to test each of them as It can make a great difference to noise isolation and therefore sound quality. Now to the most impressive aspect of all, the sound. This really did blow me away, first off I must say these headphones specialise in delivering bass, that said they are extremely versatile and still great for all music types. The drivers on these headphones are 10mm, which is massive. To put this into perspective the average cheaper pair will likely have a 4mm driver. The advantage of this is a distinct lack of distortion even at extremely high volume levels, and also a lower audible frequency range and generally richer sound. Whilst they are superb for all genres, when using them for genres like Dubstep, DnB or anything bass orientated they really come into their own. You can FEEL the bass and that's no exaggeration, even at super low frequencies its so rich and so powerful it completely and utterly changes the song. Also these headphones, despite not claiming any noise reduction properties are pretty good at isolating the sound when using the right size ear pieces. Here's my highlights of the spec; 10mm neodymium drivers gold-plated 3.5mm jack Extreme Deep bass ports 2.6mm very robust pure copper cable I can tell you right now I've just seen these online with free delivery for £16.99! That really is incredible value, simply cant believe the spec at that price....completely unrivalled. Whilst I'm conscious I've had a bit of a rant here I can assure you its justified, If your looking for headphones that can really deliver but don't want to blow the bank then trust me, right now you wont find better anywhere. Id advise looking on youtube at some of the comparison tests between these and some £80 Klipsch Image S4's. Thanks for reading and I hope this helped.
