              Comments about JVC HA-S160 FLATS On-Ear Stereo Headphones (Black):

              These headphones are the best. I had a pair for four years and lost it somewhere so I bought it again. The fact that they still sell this model says something. Lightweight, super comfortable with soft vinyl earpiece sleeves, great sound, and all that. Folds flat so it can fit in a jacket pocket with your mp3 player alongside it. Hard plastic so will not break if you drop it. The only thing you could do is possible stretch the cord out of the earpiece, but that is the case with all headphones. Sounds just as good as the expensive bulky models and much better than bud earphones. Has no sound control and noise cancellation functions, although the headphones do block out noise somewhat even if you are not playing anything.

                The price on these headphones must be a misprint.These have really good stereo separation.Everybody would buy at least one pair of these,if they would listen to them. These are good enough to reveal flaws in your recordings if they exist.

                      I wasn't expecting much for [$] USD but I'm amazed by the sound quality of these little cans. Thry sound significently better than the headphones they replaced - Koss Porta Pro. Bass is very solid, highs are crisp. I use them plugged into a Pioneer stereo receiver. Downsides are they're not the most comfortable and after an hour or so my ears start to fidget but nothing close to unbearable. Cord length could also be longer but I bought a 3.3 ft noodle extension cable to solve that problem. I'd buy these again.

                          I use these headphones to watch TV with my wife so I don't blast her out of the room. I think for the money, they are a great deal. The only thing I don't like is trying to find the volume control, but evertyhing else is great.

                            I use these when I travel. They fold flat in my laptop bag, which is great. The sound is really good, especially for the money. The bass is much better then most in this range. They come in colors: Violet, blue, red, and pink but they charge extra for those (seriously?) so I just went with black.

                                These extremely inexpensive headphones sound good to me. I enjoy walking around the city Iistening to my Ipod and these do the trick. Not audiophile, but good, and comfortable.

                                  I had these headphones about two years ago.
                                  They were some of the best I've used, especially for the price. I'm pretty rough on headphones and I use them a lot, but these held up for almost two years stylen absolute record for me. It's always the jack that goes bad and I would almost swear most makers design it that way. But these held up better than any I've found, the sound is phenomenal for the price, and they fit my ears perfectly and are extremely comfortable, which is pretty important when you wear them a lot. My local stores stopped carrying them, so for convenience sake, I figured I'd just buy other brands I've used before. Either the sound,volume, bass were a real disappointment (since I'd been spoiled by the JVC flats), or they fell apart. I had one pair fall apart ( the jack, of course) in less than a week. Disgusting. But now I ordered two more pairs of these JVC flats online, and am happy as can be with them. I very highly recommend them to any serious music listener. The buds just don't cut it for me.

                                      I bought these headphones for work because they were cheap, low shipping (thanks B&H!) and had some decent reviews. Got them in the mail and I am very impressed. sound quality is great, and this sounds really nerdy but I am so impressed at how they fold flat without compromising the quality. I also really really appreciate the padded ear cups that are a nice balance between comfort, good sound quality and dont look like those ridiculous dj/ audiophile headphones. I've already recommended them to my friends and I'm about to buy a second pair to use at home.

                                      Have tried many headphones and this one is my most recent. The price and performance is 5 star. The design and lack of head cushion are drawbacks. The mids and highs are good, the lows could be better. A good performer for the price.
