This review is from: JLAB JBuds Original Earbuds - Black (Electronics)
For £14, these are some pretty good headphones. Previously I had been using the "PSP" ones of a similar design with volume control from GAME, for about £7-£8 which served me well. However, the sound was very muffled until you had used them for a while, and one of the phones went mute after about 6 months.

The JBuds are very similar to GAME's phones. For twice the price you are getting a very long lead. *thumbs up* From the bottom of my jeans pocket, I was able to reach the ceiling holding the earpieces. There's no volume control, but I have found that the volume control makes the sound click and fuzz as you adjust it, even on a £25 pair of regular style Sennheisers I had. So maybe I'll get a longer life out of a pair without the feature and just bother to take my iPod out of my pocket to change the volume again.

The noise isolation isn't top class. At a semi-loud volume when I plugged them into my computer speakers I could hear the music but it was in a quiet room and it wasn't loud enough to know what song was playing if I were somebody else, and in the waiting room for a train, nobody seemed to notice anything.

I'm very happy with these so far, the sound is very good right from the start, unlike GAME's. Not CRYSTAL clear because in-ear phones tend to provide more bass than treble and the sound is perfect having said that. Thanks very much for a good value, good quality, and COMFY pair of headphones at last. I like to listen in bed so it's good that my ears won't hurt when the side of my head is on the pillow any more.
