Really? I've never heard of that upside down fit thing before! What does that do?

In my case it made them fit WAY better. The standard fit just didn't work right for some reason, like it never sealed quite right or like the opening wasn't pointed straight into the ear canal. Flipped over the other way it's PERFECT.

Huh. I'll keep that in mind! Thanks! But I read somewhere that the bass really isn't all that great. Is that true?

For the best ones trust JVC with their Xtreme Xplsoives in ear or headphones. Low priced and better than Beats by Dre Studios.

I'm serious. In terms of sound quality, there is no way these are the worst headphones on the market since they are better than urbeats in my opinion.  Especially if you like bass, the bass of the new earbuds is really huge.

 

I don't use them since I got the Shure SE535 which is superior in every way. But that's not a free headphone :)

I've owned their earbuds. I threw them out after I got my urbeats. The urbeats are literally better in every way without contest.

But is the bass on the JVCs better? Like, is there more than beats? Are they better sounding or more powerful? Do they distort at high volume? Most people say they have less bass.

Actually the earpods are pretty good. But they will not give you the bass you are looking for.

If they're so good, why doesn't everyone just use though? You can get 1,000 pairs of them for the price of one pair of cans.

Actually they're about $20, so you can get like, five for a pair of cans, LOL.

 

Only reason I can imagine anyone using earpods is that they just want background noise or to block out the noise of public transport and don't really care how it sounds, per se.

I used to have them. They're bad. This shouldn't even be a conversation. My 10 year old step brother who's never owned headphones before has a pair and he says they're really bad.

EarPods are decent earphones. Little isolation, which leads to poor bass.... But clarity is better than SkullCandy and most lower end Beats. Beats of course have more bass, being in-ear...

Apple Earbuds are terrible... But Apple EarPods are pretty good.

As far as good earbuds/in-ears for bass... I've heard/read some great things about Soul SL99 in-ears. Supposedly tighter punchier more controlled bass than Beats, with better mids and smoother highs.

MrRodriguez has it right. The earbuds are bad but the earpods are actually pretty good. Its important to know the difference. :wink_face:

Even so, the pods might beat the buds. But they're still a joke compared to the urbeats. Please don't try to tell me otherwise, for I've owned both. They gave me a free pair when I bought my iPhone. I tried them out and threw them away. They're uncomfortable, have weak bass, and the vocals are absolute garbage.

Irrelevant for me. I've never heard the earbuds. I've only heard the pods. They just sit loosely in your ear with no seal or fit, which means you have absolutely ZERO isolation. They sound like a vaguely better version of the crummy earbuds I had in high school. No bass, no presence, no depth at all or pleasant listening experience. I threw mine away.
