For me, headphones usually only last a couple of months at the most as I use them every day and put somewhat a lot of pressure on the bendyness of the wires. I've had this set for a good few months now and they are going as strong as ever, showing no sign of dying on my anytime soon. I don't think that there are any pair of headphones out there that can last an incredibly long time so I usually opt for the cheaper ones on the market and maybe buy more than one pair which I carry with me at all times.
As well as lasting me a good measure of time, the colour of the headphones is great, very vivid and out there. This shade matches my orange iPod perfectly which I was very satisfied with! I've got really, quite small ears and I don't know if they've adapted to having earphones jammed in them every day or if these just happen to fit nicely, but they sit in there for a while. They can come out quite easily but the quality is so great that there's no room for complaints. Speaking of quality, they play music real loud, which is a definet plus.
There are alot of 4/5 star ratings for this make of earphones so for anyone who's doubting it I would recommend to go for it. After discovering these earphones they are the only make that I now buy because I know what to expect. Try them!

I needed new earphones for the gym, most fall out while I'm exercising and I keep losing the rubber bits off earbud types. I thought these might stay in better, and they do! I've been using them for about a month now and so far they just stay put. The sound quality is really good too. Overall very satisfied with this purchase.

For me headphones tend only to last a few months, if that, as I tend to abuse them quite a lot!!! I've had these for OVER A YEAR and the sound in one ear is just starting to go,I love them so I'm about to buy another pair. I think they are fantastic value for money and I love the colour and sound quality is great, can't believe they have lasted as long as they have, I highly reccomend them!!!!

I like the feel of these headphones, they feel slightly more robust than other headphone sets i have tried. I really bought them to use in the gym with my mp3 player, but they don't stay in my ears, so now i only use them when there is not too much head movement associated. These headphones are ok if you just want an inexpensive pair of headphones as an accessory. The sound from them is ok too.

Ordered these earplugs but was sent the 'newer model', as referred to at the top of this page. They appear to be the same model, only in a paler 'Valencia Orange' instead of simply 'Orange', which isn't really a problem, though of course I would've preferred the colour that I'd actually ordered! This may not be the case for everyone, but just as a word of warning to potential buyers, this was what I experienced.

With regard to the earphones themselves, they fit very well in the ear and are not perfectly circular for extra ergonomic value. They seem to be very durable, and are (apparently) eco-friendly, which is always a bonus!

Overall they are perfectly adequate earplugs, exactly what you would expect; one star deducted for a slightly different colour.

After considering what seemed to be an endless list of headphone in this price range I decided merrily on the the bright colouring displayed on the picture, and previous reviewers to purchase this model. I'm not one for spending masses amount on headphones after a pair of skullcandys that I spent £30 on broke within a few weeks and honestly there really ant that much difference in sound quality. If your looking for a cheap but hearty sound headphone look no further they even match the nano. Although jvc's have a tendacy to fade out in one ear these have yet to disappoint I would highly recommend

However they have been parcial to occasionally fall out of my ear so I simply put it back in and enjoy the crisp sound that didn't force me to take a hefty loan out to afford.

I bought these to wear at night, as I always have to listen to my iPod to get to sleep. I have broken many a pair of the official Apple headphones by using them in this manner; they are unable to survive getting squashed under my pillows, rolled on etc. so I decided to buy some cheaper ones to use instead. The first pair I had lasted nearly two years, which is brilliant considering the hammering they get each night! I'm now on pair number two and, as ever, they are doing the job. Arguably, they're not the best headphones around, but they have proved more durable than the rip-off Apple ones, and for the price, I think they're great.

I'm extremely pleased with this product. Having had two pairs of Apple earphones destroyed by the cat, I wanted to buy something reasonably cheap with good sound quality. In my opinion these earphones are as good, if not better, than my previous Apple ones. The sound clarity is crystal clear and they effectively block out background noise. I find they stay in my ears well (I use them for the gym so there's a fair bit of moving around) and are comfortable to wear for a long period of time. The orange colour is slightly lighter than in the picture, but still very nice. Would definitely recommend these.

i had got these headphones today and tried them out straight away,because i am a several headphone destroyer i was looking for a pair of headphones that, wouldent mind a bit of bashing around,so after reading a couple reviews about the jvc orange headphones i decide to order them because they seemed very good.so i went out for a bit of running and because they have got gummy material around them i found out that they are very comfortable and that they dont fall out so i would recomend these to any one who does a bit of movment or people that like listening to loud music

I bought these to replace my previous JVC headphones, which had broken after a lot of use. The headphones I had before were the exact same as these but white and the quality was great- the sound was always clear and loud when I turned up the volume. However, these headphones disappointed me. They are quite muffled and they're just so quiet, even when the volume is as high as it can go. It's not what I'm used to from JVC so I hope this is just a one-off fault product.

Edit: also thought I might add that these were sold to me by Babz Media.
