What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Weighty and enjoyable sound, and there's a handy remote/mic for use with iPhones, iPods and iPads

Pros

  • + Enjoyable
  • + rich and weighty bass
  • + remote
  • + echo-cancelling mic

Cons

  • - Bass slightly too dominant

Play something stripped-down, like Ben Howard’s Old Pine, and the Jamos immediately please thanks to a luscious, rich bottom-end.

The problem is that as tracks build, the bass feeds up to the mid-range and slightly drowns out the treble.

They’re still very chunky and enjoyable, though, and the remote/mic makes them handy for iPhone users.
