How Are The JVC Gummies

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

I remember hearing about them and I found them at Walmart for $10.

They were the HAFX35B model.  Any opinions?

If you're near a Best Buy grab the FX67 instead. They were $9.99 when I was in there last. I do have both the FX67 and IE7 if you want a quick opinion.

more like jvc crummies. tongue_smile.gif   they're about as good/bad as the stock apple buds.  

 

for $10, i'd rather get the skullcandy inkd, at least they're in ear and sound slightly better.

The in-ear FX35 are Marshmallows, not Gumys.  wink.gif

The JVC Gumys are earbuds, the HA-F140 being the current model if I recall correctly.

Thing is, I don't like the whole In ear feel. I would rather have the earbud style!

Ah, so you were actually looking at the F140.  I have a pair of the F130s and they're decent for $10, but I much prefer the MX471 for $7 more on Amazon.

I bought a pair of Gummies on sale at CompUSA several years ago and they suck.  For the same amount of money, you can get the Sony MDRE10LP.

the only marshmallows that sound good are the FX33. The gummies sound horrible.

I picked up a cheap set of Philips ear buds at Target a while ago. I wanted something I could fall asleep with and wouldn't wake me up when I rolled over onto my side. Anyway for ten buck phones I think they are great. One thing I notice with these unlike other buds, they sound great in their normal position but the bass is too much when you press them against you ear er maybe earhole. Other cheap buds I had only sounded decent when you kept you thumbs on them pushing them in. Anyway the Philips aren't a primary phone but for something I can throw in my pocket they're fine.

I  like the sound of them.  What do you want for $10 ?  IEM don't work for me. I like buds, and they are hard to find.

The Sony MDR-E828 for around $8 probably sounds much better than the Gummies.I haven't heard the Gummies, but do use the E828(i also have the Sennheiser MX580, Sony E888, and other various Sony and JVC earbuds and  IEMs)  Of course the E828 isn't perfect though, and at higher volumes you might hear a little bit of distortion. At medium and lower volumes though it sounds very good for the price. It is the only  traditional earbuds  under $10 I know of that has strong bass. It has 16mm drivers, and is very efficient(16 ohms 108 db/mw). The JVC Riptidz IEM for under $8 sounds quite good considering the price. i like the Riptidz better than the JVC Air Cushions(HA-FX67) which is more than double the price. The Sennheiser MX270($12 or so) seems like a good low priced choice. I haven't heard it though. It is described as being like the $35 Sennheiser MX580(which I love), but with a bit less detail.

Spend $10 on earbuds and you will get $10 worth of sound, typically.  If you want earbud style (sit in outer ear without sealing the ear canal), then the Sony MDR-E818 is OK, but if you want to hear good sound, spend a little more and look at the Sennheiser MX 400/500 lines on Amazon.com.

Not quite. Some $10 earbuds give you $3 worth of sound, while other $10 ones are comparable to some that cost $20+. The Sennheiser MX400 and MX500 are ancient and very bass deficient. They have decent enough midrange. For just a small amount more than the E818, the E828 is more efficient, and has gotten better reviews. The Sony E828 has so much more bass than the MX400 and mx500, and is also  more efficient. The e828 is 16 ohms, while the MX400 and MX500 are 32 ohms. The e828 is 126 db/V(108 db/mw). The MX400 and MX500 are 119 db/V. The Sennheiser MX270 is probably  better than the Sony E828, however it is also more expensive.
