JVC HAS4X Xtreme Xplosives On Ear Headphone,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JVC HAS4X Xtreme Xplosives On Ear Headphone (Electronics)
bought these in dec 2012 after seeing ebay offer for Sony MDRZX300R Fashionable Monitor Style Headphones - black for £20. looked around for better prices & found same on amazon for £15 but a friend had similar one(Sony MDRXB300 Extra Bass) & it leaked sound past half volume + i've had many sony headphones over time.i had been looking awhile, here & there & once in while for on/over ear headphones & suddenly wanted a pair & since my sony dj ones broke in 2008, had been using only in ear headphones but the deciding factor after listening to the in ear jvc xplosive which a cousin had, i got the on ear versions.
they were quite tight upon first few times using but after few times it loosens & can be worn for longer periods. they do stand out while wearing them but i brought them for bass & sound isolation, which it does both perfectly. the bass is excellent & if u fiddle with sound/equaliser settings u can get even more bass while overall quality remains unaffected.
as for sound leakage there is none unless volume is at more than 90%. i've tested with various genres(dance,trance, rock,pop) while sitting next to someone in a quite room & are unable to hear anything, & u can barely hear them. i've used on phones(iphone 4s, samsung s2, htc desire, sony xperia ray, nokia n8- 5310- e72- c3) mp3 players(sony NW-E507 -50 hour battery, creative muvo,samsungYP U2), tv(sony + toshiba) and laptops(acer aspire + samsung rv510) & sound quality is very good on all devices. when volume is very high on laptops they seem to leak bit more sound
all in all great sound/build quality, deep bass, sound isolation & the price - i got for £19. what r u waiting for- go & get it.
