Update 6/28/15: These headphones have been discontinued by JVC, however there is a limited supply still available from Amazon. They are some of the highest rated headphones due to price (low) vs quality (high) ratio. So, if you like these don’t wait or they may be gone.
If you’re a girl looking for a nice pair of workout headphones that also have the ability to match your iPod then definitely take a look at the JVC Inner Ear Sports Clip Headphones. Sorry guys, you may be out of luck on this one (at least in our opinion).
Matching iPod Colors. No matter what color iPod you have you can find the corresponding headphone color to match.
Great Price. This is one of the most popular aspects of these ear hook headphones. Decent headphones for a great price.
Lightweight and Slender. The ear hook is a little more slender than most, which is perfect for smaller ears and women.
Won’t Last Forever. Unless you take extremely good care of your headphones and aren’t rough on them then it’s likely you’d replace these by year’s end. The construction is good, but it’s just not on par with some of your higher end workout headphones. Though at this price it’s understandable.
All the guys who may have bought the black or white color of these headphones may not like to hear this, but we think JVC had women in mind when they created these sports headphones.
First off, they made colors to match your iPod. So depending on what color iPod you went with you can be sure your headphones match next time you hit the gym.
Besides the colors JVC also made these ear hooks a little more slender or narrow than is conventional (take a look at the Polk Auadio UltraFit 500 for comparison). This also helps make these headphones extremely lightweight.
If you add up those 3 main features it makes it pretty perfect for women, though guys, we won’t say anything if you fancy the pink ones!
Bottom line is if you’re looking for a cute pair of workout headphones that you can also take to the beach or wear out walking your dog then go with the JVC Sports Clip. But for this price don’t expect to be blown away by the sound or any other features.
