These days, saying “a brand you heard of” means that some private capital firm has bought the company, loaded it up with debt, and sold off anything of value to the highest bidder, including the brand name.
@guybrush01 I doubt JVC has been acquired by that, but they’re a big company with a marketing department full of the usual wing-tipped Ferengi, so these earbuds are probably generic earbuds with JVC branding printed on, imported by the truckload from some Alibaba vendor.
@guybrush01 Japanese companies don’t tend to get bought out by US private capital firms. I’ve owned JVC speakers in the past. The issue is that everyone is going to “true wireless” ear buds. So these are considered “obsolete”.
@guybrush01@tssorrells, late? No problem, but I was just trying to help guybrush01 as he posted that he would likely buy & give his nephew the earbuds, then ended by posting that he was buying ‘Black’ buds. That prompted my comment. What you buy for yourself is up to you, but this is generic advice that can apply to you, or anyone. BTW, since you did buy red, then the advice to you isn’t necessary; it doesn’t apply. I’m glad your choice fit my recommendation!
My similar set was just munched on by our puppy the other day. He destroyed only the right bud, though, so they still work for mono use (thanks for that, buddy). After reviewing this deal, I decided that for the same price, I’d rather have one well-reviewed set from a brand I know and trust for stellar products than two with only a few mediocre reviews from a brand I know for recently providing only “decent” stuff. Sorry, meh. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07ZRMFG8H
Is this another one of those, “Let’s post another set of super-garbage eardungs in an attempt to finally anger the remaining VMPs to give it up”? Yeah, right. AS IF! WE’LL NEVER GIVE UP OUR VMP!!! NEVER!!!
I must have got something totally different than the dude who said these have deep base. The sound output is pretty sad. I will say, they fit snuggly and for indoor, quiet environments, they perform fine. The battery life has been pretty good so far. But they are quiet.
