JVC HA F140PN Gumy phones
Advantages: good sound quality, stay in your ears because of the oval shape, good value, long lasting
Disadvantages: hard to open the packaging at first
I got these JVC Gumy earphones for Christmas last year.
~ Appearance ~
They came in difficult to open clear plastic packaging.
The earphones come with an average length 40 inch pink wire, which splits into two wires at about 28 inches.
The earphones themselves are oval shaped and have rubber covers and clear pink plastic on the back.
'JVC', is in white lettering on the back of each earphone and there is a letter 'L' and an 'R' to indicate which is for the left and which for the right ear.
On the other end there is a straight universal jack, which plugs straight in to your phone, ipod or other device.
~ In use ~
The earphones feel unbelievably comfortable and the oval shape stops them from falling out of my ears, which is very handy. They never fall out of my ears like my previous Apple earphones did.
The sound quality is really good in these earphones.
Something I found with my previous Apple ipod earphones was that the wire became grubby from being thrown around in my handbag and they looked worn and aged. I went through a few pairs of Apple earphones before I got these JVC ones and they seemed to be a lot less hard wearing.
These JVC Gumy earphones still look as good as new after almost a year of use. The wire and the earphones themselves have not discoloured or become grubby like the white Apple earphones. The wire is good quality and hasn't developed any kinks or other problems.
I like the way that they look. The colour makes them different and they make a nice change from the white, but grubby Apple earphones that everyone seems to have.
~ Price and availability ~
These earphones cost around £5.00 from Amazon.co.uk although the recommended retail price is about £10.00.
~ Conclusion ~
These earphones are good quality and the sound quality is excellent.
They look nice and the colour is different from anything else on the market. They also feel very comfortable and they stay in my ears because of the oval shape, which I find really handy. They are quite hard wearing and reasonably priced.
I have been impressed by these earphones and would definitely buy them again if I needed some more earphones.
Summary: Good quality and good value!
