      an affordable earphone

      It is a really tinny sound and you also end up using them for radios only, not great for music if you go too economical with the standard 35mm ear jack. You've got to pay over a fiver to get few brands and great bass sound making these things today. Gummy's are on particular on Amazon right now for GBP4.99 and so time to snap some upward, perfect for MP3, smartphone's and other audio equipment.

      It comes with lime green to girly pink, and also a fine little slide in the wire to try to quit tangling, which doesn't work, in amazing colours . As we all know nothing can stop personal stereo wires. Some believe there are little mischievous gremlins in your pockets waiting to arrive, prepared to tie them. The pesky gremlins can't get these to fit the IPod, Apple intentionally making their accessories somewhat distinct measurements so you have to buy bespoke over priced non Apple kit that is universal to do the job.

      These earphones in many cases are badly designed and so you want the foam things that were little to keep some versions to remain in, that will rub off several of the sound quality. You could also buy the black fuzzy things on Amazon for dirt cheap. Like printer ink they're disgracefully priced in the high street, if you will locate them.

      There aren't any elaborate knobs or whistles on these Gummy's just left to your kit to equalize them and to improve the sound. But as I said, for the price and look that is fashionable they're cracking value. You might have to tape up the wire a little where it joins to the jack to give it more longevity and stiffness.

      The packaging is one of those designs that you have to damage the box to get the product out and so you can not tuck these back in under guarantee and seal them up to get your money back if you do not enjoy the product. You have to go with, after you have bought them. The Gummy people are smart cookies. We know these mini earphones don't have a long shelf life as we tend to man handle them with lots of pulling at the cables and dropping of music players and those Ipods so the wire twists and bend so ware fast and so one ear bud eventually packs up. One ear bud always packs up. Way does bend rather too easily on the jack connector and so never far from being able to pack up as the cable affrays. Molded wire sockets are designed to not last. Fabricates constantly need you purchasing a lot more of exactly the same thing compared to same thing lasting forever.

      Gummy gummy gummy I got love in my tummy

      Gummy are the best low cost value in the shops today. If you go too cheap with the standard 35mm ear jack you get a really tinny sound and you end up using them for radios only, not great for music. You have to pay over a fiver to get good bass sound and few brands making these things these days. Gummy’s are on special on Amazon right now for £4.99 and so time to snap some up, ideal for MP3, smartphone’s and other audio equipment.

      They come in funky colors, from lime green to girly pink, and a nice little slide on the wire to try and stop tangling, which doesn’t work, of course. As we all know nothing can stop personal stereo wires knotting. Some believe there are little mischievous gremlins in your pockets waiting for those wires to arrive, ready to tie them in knots. Even the pesky gremlins can’t get these to fit the IPod, Apple deliberately making their accessories slightly different dimensions so you have to buy bespoke over-priced non universal Apple kit to do the job.

      The product itself has a good bassy sound and a malleable shape to fit your ear if you have the wrong shaped lug to deliver the best quality sound. These earphones are often poorly designed and so you need the little foam things to keep some models to stay in, which will rub off some of the sound quality. You can also buy the black fuzzy things on Amazon for dirt cheap. Like printer ink they are disgracefully priced on the high street, if you can find them.

      There are no fancy knobs or whistles on these Gummy’s to boost the sound and simply left to your kit to equalize them. But, as I said, for the price and stylish look they are cracking value. You may have to tape the wire up a little where it connects to the jack to give it more stiffness and longevity.

      The packaging is one of those designs that you have to damage the box to get the product out and so you can’t tuck these back in under guarantee and seal them up to get your money back if you don’t like the product. Once you have bought them you have to go with. The Gummy people are smart cookies.

One ear bud always packs up. The jack-plug wire does bend rather too easily on the jack connector and so never far way from being ready to pack up as the wire frays. Molded wire sockets are designed not to last. Manufactures always want you buying more of the same thing than the same thing lasting forever.

      Advantages

      • Reliability

      Disadvantages

      An affordable, reliable, comfortable and above all satisfying choice of earphone.

      The JVC Gumy headphones are some of the best earbud earphones I have ever purchased. Comfortable, stylish and handling sound very well, they are a brilliant choice for a low price.

      Appearance

      The earbuds themselves have a very simple, but stylish design. Though many choices of colour are available, I would suggest getting the black ones as they really do look smart. The earbuds are very comfortable, and more comfortable than any other earbud style headphone I have tried. This owes to the soft plastic (hence 'gumy') they are made from.

      They fit snugly and, unlike many competitors, actually stay in your ear. This was a welcome experience after so many disappointments with even cheaper earphones (think Griffin). They don't irritate, even after extended use (think 3+ hours of use) and are fairly sturdy due to their malleability.

      Furthermore, the cabling is of exactly the right length. Not too big or small, you won't find yourself winding it around your iPod so it fits snugly in your pocket nor will you be frustrated to find it won't reach certain pockets. Likewise, the headphone jack does the job well and feels sturdy. Having had and used these earphones continuously over an extended period of time, it has been nice to see that discolouration has been kept to a minimum (aside from the white pair I own, which I suggest you avoid for this very reason) and there has been no superficial tearing to the cabling.

      Performance

      As far as sound quality is concerned, this pair of earphones fares very well for a low-price option. Sound is rich and conveyed beautifully, though bass can be a bit underwhelming at times. These won't offer mind-blowing sound quality but for this price you really can't complain.

      Unlike other earphones, these perform well at varied volume levels. Even at half-full volume on my iPod these earphones offer an impressive level of sound. Very little sound leak is felt (so those around you won't be getting angry with the music you're listening to) and this helps along a very enjoyable sound experience.

      Summary

      For around ten pounds, these are a safe bet as far as earphones are concerned. If, like me, you have been left disappointed time and time again by poor-quality ear-bud earphones but dislike in-ear earphones, these are an ideal choice. Comfortable, stylish and leaking very little sound, they are a recommended choice for ear-bud lovers in search of reliable low price earphones.

      brilliant cheap colourful headphones

      I love my Gumy Headphones. I bought them after accidentally cutting my old headphones with a pair of scissors. This headphones are great quality and I have never had any problems with the quality of sound. These were a cheap pair of headphones I got from Asda so they aren't great at cancelling out sound and don't have a volume control of the cord but for the price I paid they are a bargain. I was so happy with my blue headphones that I bought my girlfriend a pink pair and she loves them too. I'm impressed by how hard wearing these phones are, I have put them through a lot of a abuse and they have never failed. They have a rubber film over the earpieces so they feel comfortable in the ear and I think they fair better in the rain as they shouldn't get any water in the speaker bit. The attachment that goes in to headphone socket is very bendy but I'm not convinced it is going not break as these seems to happen to a lot of my headphones. There is not much more to say other than they are a brilliant set of headphones that are easy to use, comfortable and sturdy and they come in cool colours.

      stylish with good sound quality and comfort

      I bought these headphones after finally giving up on my previous ones after I shut one of the buds in a car door. I picked these headphones from the argos catalog because they were cheap and looked cute. The ones i own are the pink ones, and the other colours are easily available.

      Sound quality is very good considering I only paid around a tenner for the headphones; if i plug these in to my ipod mini and put the ipod on full volume then these headphones can act is speakers, and the sound carriers across my bedroom. Thinking back to my old ipod headphones, I think this ability is something the ipod ones did not have to such a wide extent. I have had no problem with the headphones causing my ears pain after wearing them for long periods of time, and often have the buds in for 3 hours consecutively. The pink looks cool.

      These are good headphones for everyday use and I would recommend them. They seem quite sturdy and have not been damaged in the six months I have owned them.

      Ok, used better

      This is a pretty good product overall, but i have some issues with it. First the good points - They are really cute! They look very nice and are easy to fit into your ears. They are comfortable and squishy to fit your ears well. Fun to chew, but this is partly bad. The bad points - the headphone constantly pops out of its case - exposing live wires. I got an electric shock off these when i accidentily did this, i recommend not giving these to small children or people who will chew them. They are very easy to break, I have had 3 sets of these, all of which have broken within a month of getting them, one pair within a week. They are cheap and unreliable, but good if you lose headphones all the time as they are quite cheap. Cheap and cheerful but may break the bank if you end up buying multiple pairs after others have broken.
