An entry level over-ear commuter headphones that feature a lightweight and foldable design. The design of the headphones are really quite decent looking considering its price tag as they are worse looking ones. For over-ear headphones the earcups aren’t ridiculously large and great for kids or teens because the opening small for adults as prolong clamping pressure can cause discomfort especially the top tips of the ears. The cable itself is 1.2m long and non-detachable. It doesn’t have an in-line controller or a mic to answer calls.
The headphones are mainly constructed out of plastics with a matte-ish finish for the most part other than the earcups themselves that have a glossy shiny finish. Each earcup bearing the JVC logo and a silver trim that goes around the earcups. The earcup 2cm deep, opening is 5cm tall and 3cm across while the pad is 9cm tall and 7.5cm across. The headbands themselves are made out of plastic with metal that runs through it. They are decently flexible but as always, avoid flexing at extreme angles.
Clamping pressure is decent and firm, combined with its light weight, it doesn’t move around a lot even with rapid head movement. They’re decently padded with faux-leather lined foam which are a little on the firm side but in return gives good sound isolation. On the top of each earcup is a hinge that allows it to be folded down further which is great for storage. Powered by a 40mm driver with carbon diaphragm and small air opening for improve bass and mid range.
The audio test:
The XX – Islands
Vocals have a eye candy body and depth to it, clear midrange but it just need little more kick in the upper range. Guitar picking is nice and you can hear the chords vibrating.
For Tiaan – Be Ok. Bass is presence from low bass frequency to high frequency but the JVC work well toward lower to mid frequency with good energy and clarity.
For Pia Mia – Do It Again. The high bass frequency falls flat, has slight bass distortion to it doesn’t feel full
Although the build quality is questionable but for its price it perform very good in the audio department just wished the earcups were little more big to accommodate adult size ears as the opening can be small for many but great if you want to buy this for the kids or teens since their ear size are small.
