Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"My one problem is that the whole cover near the audio jack has come unglued and slips off every time I go to remove it from the audio jack port; this may or may not be the reason why the audio has degraded a bit over time; sometimes if the cord isn't in the right position near the audio jack it reduces sound quality significantly."
_
"Pretty good audio quality."
_
"And it's not that they are all about sturdyness but bad audio, completely the opposite, it's a full package, great audio and even greater build."
_
"these JVC HAFX101A in ear Headphone ear buds are comfortable and have a excellent full range audio response plus a great price! "
_
"After reading so many positive reviews, and high claims from popular audio forums I thought this was a clear no brainer purchase for cheap Earbuds that I can wear and use at work."

"Pros:- Price- Strong bass-response (bassheads would love it, some might find it a bit too overwhelming)- Fairly detailed sound, more than what you would expect at this price range (after burn-in)Cons:- Build quality (cables feel flimsy and extremely prone to tangling)- Sound is very sharp before burn-in- Cable is not sound-resistant; you can hear the cable brushing against your clothesYou NEED to burn-in these earphones!"

"Cord does look flimsy - durability may be a concern - we'll see! "
