Pros Excellent, non-peaky treble. Bass very clear and not "boomy." Efficient enough that it can be driven to pretty high volume when directly connected to iPod headphone jack.
Cons Wished JVC offered a version with iPod-compatible in-line controller.
Summary I just got this in-ear monitor (IEM) through Amazon at a very reasonable price. At that reasonable price, I consider them a major steal: the sound quality is flat-out excellent, with very clear treble, and clean, non-boomy bass. You'd need to spend way over US$100 to get an IEM that could match the sound the HA-FXC80 offers.
The only pity is that JVC doesn't offer a version of the HA-FXC80 with iPod-compatible in-line controller, because that would make this IEM a serious competitor to the Klipsch Image S4i and Etymotic mc3 headsets.
"Good Bass."on by Swifterthanu
Pros -Good Bass
-Good sound blocking
Cons -Really hurt to wear the first couple weeks
-Have to be postioned just right to hear bass good
-Not a low enough range for drops or deep lines
Summary I got these as backups for my bose ie2's but they just don't compare, for almost the same price i would definitely go with bose
Pros Sound quality is exceptional.
Cons None. Some reviews talk about breakage but I don't use these to jog. Also have not had them for that long. Can't comment.
Summary I am an amateur head-fier. Typically use a dedicated headphone amp (RSA predator) w Denon 5000s. Wanted some portable cans to take with me while using my laptop. Typically look for amazon reviews but product is not on amazon yet. These are special. Very good value. Sounds is exceptional. Fit is great. Some specifics:
1. Pandora streaming - very good audio reproduction.
2. CD quality audio - outstanding. Bass excellent, mids grea
