Music:
"They're not really meant for enjoying music but more for revealing what is wrong in recordings."

"Pros:Great valueCons:I like my music pretty loud (until I feel like I'm inside of it)."

Quality

Quality:
"The point I'm trying to make is that these cheap JVC headphones have respectable sound quality and you're not going to feel like you'e missing out or that you'e compromising on quality."
_
"For long-term use, they aren't as comfortable as the more expensive, over the ear models, but the sound quality makes it worthwhile."
_
"That being said while they sound great, certainly better than their <$20 price suggests the build quality is not great."
_
"That is not to say that the headphones feel 'cheap' because they do not, they have a moderate build quality, but you can tell they won't hold up as well as a $50~ pair would."

"These headphones have very good sound quality, but they are a bit uncomfortable."

Size

Size:
"My only complaint is the small earpieces sit on the ear, not over it, but I knew that going in and they don't start getting uncomfortable even on a 6 mile hike."
_
"All in all (after some 5-6hr of use burn-in) I'd break it down as follows:Bass Extension: 4 10Bass Impact: 5.5 10Bass Texture: 5 10 (sufficiently well defined, some slight fluidity flabbiness on occasion)Mids Quality: 5.5 10Highs Extension: 4.5 10Highs Quality: 5.5 10 (vivid for the most part)Highs Texture: 4.5 10 (some harshness graininess)Detail Transparency: 5.5 10 (fairly clear)Dynamics: 6 10 (natural)Soundstage: 6 10Imaging: 5 10Other:Isolation: 3 10 (small size on-ear cushions don't offer sufficient outside noise isolation)Comfort: 5 10 (the cushions press on the ears and become uncomfortable after a while)Portability: 9 10 (small size, they fold flat)Improvement w Amplification: 3 10 (Note: It can be easily driven by portable devices to loud levels."
_
"I loved everything about them, the sound and design was acceptable, but too bad the headset pieces are too small to cover the entire ear, this equals to discomfort!"
_
"Good Bass for a small, light weight headset."
_
"These are a really good size for those who don't like the tiny in-ear headphones because they're not too bulky and they don't flop around on your head so you can tolerate wearing them for hours."
_
"These are really impressive considering the price and size."
_
"The sound: Fairly natural with a decent bass response (for the size), the mid range is surprisingly well represented while the highs are clear (perhaps a bit muted dark in the lower highs, 3-6kHz) but have a tinge of harshness (somewhat similar to some closed-back Audio-Technica headphones) and extend to only about 12kHz before beginning a sustained roll-off (still above average for their price range)."
_
"Small and light they fold flat, perfect for a laptop case and travel."

"These are perfect for the office to block out the annoying sounds of sneezing, coughing, pointless chatter, soup slurping, and other noises from fellow cube dwellers."
_
"So for the average consumer or people that just KNOW when something sounds good or not, doesn't matter, I HIGHLY recommend these headphones."
