Well worth the money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JVC HAEBX85AN Splash Proof Sports Headphone - Blue (Electronics)
OK, I want to give 4 stars but this REALLY deserves all 5. Let me explain...
I only use these in the gym as most earphones can't survive the cardio bit of my workout. When I start sweating it practically rains down from my head. Now, because of the design and how the cable tucks away, I've noticed that the sweat from my head channels into my ear and I end up feeling all weird and needing to clean out the sweat (yucky I know but its what's happening). I have 2 solutions, 1. I use smaller earbuds (included) and I jam the earbud into my ear so that the sweat can't get in and 2. I keep some tissue in my pocket to wipe down my ears and the earphone if the jamming technique fails.
Now, considering the above, I have to say I really didn't expect the earphones to last because it was getting drenched regularly!! But after 4 months of use its still going strong!! The earphones are very comfortable and the quality is really good for the price. The cable seems pretty strong to considering the constant tugging this gets when used. My complaint is small compared to the battering it has and continues to take, so I would happily recommend this to everyone.
I bought the blue variant simply because it was cheaper and it would be easy to find in my bag. I really haven't treated this pair so well and its doing working perfectly. When it dies, I'll definitely buy another pair. Sound quality is very good for the price but for workout-use, its perfect.
