Comfortable

Pros: Comfort folding for portability

Cons: sound leakage at higher volumes

 I came across these at HH Gregg, the big box store. They were priced at $50 but were greatly praised by one of the salesman there. So I did what I always do when I'm shopping type in the model number into Google ( thank God for smartphones) and reviews were good. They were a new series by JVC so there weren't a whole lot of reviews yet. These were best JVC cans they had in this series there were a cheaper version there that looked exactly the same. The saleman told me he used these drumming at his church and he loved them. Luckily they were hanging in the wrong spot and had a duplicate barcode as the cheaper model so i got them for $30. Being the cheapskate I am I jumped on it and...

My private Theater

Pros: Privacy, clarity, beautiful sound seperation

Cons: The cord concerns me

They were. Especially putting on the Comply comfort plus tips included puts you in that private theater. Its so clear with Jazz and...

Impressed

Pros: warm lows mids highs

Cons: struggles on insturment seperation on faster music

I picked these up at Staples since they starting carrying Jlabs. I'd never owned any before and heard good things about them. They're very beautiful. They have real ebony wood and a kevlar cord. The most important thing is the sound of course. I'm a newbie in the audiophile market. I'm a die hard Ultimate Ear fan so right now they're all I have to compare them too ( only used the 350, 500 dynamic drivers). Anyway, these do very well with vocals and acoustic and offer a good clarity. I always start judging earbuds by The Beatles or Dave Matthews Band's music. I feel they use a lot of instruments and voice in their music.  Again, I'm a newbie. I've spent a few hours with...
