Killing time at an airport's duty free can be difficult, so making a purchase is always a good idea! Needing a new pair of earphones, I wandered into Curry's. I was looking for one that wasn't too expensive, worked well and looked good. Low and behold: JVC 'Air Cushion' Earphones!
The earphones come in a small plastic box (which is a little difficult to open, so have some scissors at the ready!). Included are the earphones, 3 soft silicon rubber earpieces in Large, Medium and Small, and 1 memory foam earpiece.
First of all, the earphones look good! The slick white finish looks classy and cool. It resists getting dirty well - I don't know if this was intentional on the manufacturer's part, but it works!
The earphones themselves are very comfortable. I have always had a problem with earphones, and the standard ones were not only uncomfortable, but also were determined not to stay in!!! These are great: the 3 different sizes mean that they will definitely fit you - unless you have abnormal ears - and are great as spares. For those of you with odd shaped ears, the memory foam earpiece is a lifesaver. It provides a very enjoyable listening experience.
I am a person who finds it difficult to analyse the quality of sound but I can say that these earphones sound great! There is no muffling and the clarity is brilliant!
They are reasonably priced at an average of £17, depending on the retailer. They are stocked at Amazon, Curry's and all other major electronic stores (and airports of course!). I have had mine for about a year and their durability is excellent.
Overall, this is a great product. The reasonable price you pay will give you plenty of enjoyable and comfortable (and stylish!) listening time. A really great buy!
JVC's research shows that consumers' biggest problem with in-ear headphones is their tendency to fall out. The HA-FX66 headphones tackle that problem by using a soft silicon rubber air cushion for the earpiece body. The result is an in-ear headphone that stays securely in place while remaining comfortable. What's more, the design also provides superior isolation from background noise, allowing the user to get the most out of the headphone's 8.5mm neodymium driver. Noise caused by cord movement is also minimized because of the headphone's Friction Noise Reduction Cord. The HA-FX66 includes a carrying case for easy transport.
