They isolate quite well, and have a pretty decent low end that is the focus of the signature. The bass is quite big in quantity (mostly mid-bass, not very impressive sub-bass), which bleed into the midrange and have potential to veil the mids. As a result, the mids are warm and not that clean. However, it is fine for the price. The major dealbreaker of the S4 for me is definitely the treble end. It doesn't extend very well and is quite low in sparkle, and to make matters worse, the unevenness creates and accentuates sibilance. I largely prefer the GR06 to the S4.
As long as the earphones were purchased from amazon.com directly, JVC should honor its warranty policy. I have not ever experienced a JVC product breaking down, so I can't vouch for the company's reliability.
