JVC HA-E130 review

Surprisingly comfortable headphones that are rhythmic and detailed considering the £10 price Tested at £10.00

Our Verdict

Surprisingly comfortable headphones that are rhythmic and detailed considering the £10 price

For

  • Really cheap, rhythmic, clean and detailed

Against

  • Little bass extension, leak noise

Now these JVCs really are cheap, and they look it, but they're surprisingly comfortable and firm in position.

Sound is a bit lightweight, with little in the way of bass extension, but they're rhythmic, clean and detailed for just £10.

But be aware, they do leak loads of noise.
