JVC has always had great reputation and I have always had their car stereos and speakers and have gotten the best results and high quality. I use earbuds quite a bit and have used all different brands to which I have never been completely satisfied; either they did last long or they had bad sound quality. Then I saw the JVC and decided to invest in them. They have the best sound quality ever.... of any other brand I have tried in the past. They are definitely worth trying. I am completely satisfied, as I should have known. I would most definitely recommend this product to others. If you have ever experienced a JVC product, you will be satisfied as well.
