Default JVC HA-EB75 great $8 workout earphones

The JVC HA-EB75 is earphones with earhooks. It is $7.99 on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HAEB75B-Sp...8573530&sr=1-1

It has an open sound that is quite decent in quality, and rubber earhooks that are adjustable and very comfortable. It looks rather plain, however it is enjoyable to use, won't fall off your ears while working out, and will let you hear what is going on around you if you keep the volume low. Highly recommended. Buy this instead of $40+ models of other brands.

Splash proof as well. Great find!

PS: they come in Blue as well!!!

PPS: the reviews by users say the fit isn't good though.

I love the fit on it. I have the earclips adjusted to be as small as possible. Most other earclip earphones have uncomfortable plastic earclips that don't adjust. The adjustable rubber earclips on this are very comfortable. Some of the Sony earclip earphones sound horrible. I had one Sony earclip earphone that was horrible(don't remember the number) and threw it in the trash.

I just noticed some reviews on the JVC website by women who claim this doesn't fit. I can see how those with very small ears(perhaps many women, but not that many men) may have fit problems with this.

I think it does probably fit well for the vast majority of men, although it might be too large for women with smaller ears.

Considering the last recommendation you provided was exactly to my liking, I'm going to get a set of these to try as well. I've come to the conclusion that your a good person to trust when it comes to this stuff. You get my vote of confidence.

Sounds good. I think you will enjoy this. The bass is very dependant on how you put this on. Just a slight push on these after putting this on to make them seat a bit deeper makes the bass much greater. For $8 this is a great value.

Pretty sure they have these at my local fry's so I may end up grabbing a set of these. My daughter took my riptidz on a summer camp trip with her and i doubt they come back.

Those hooks that go around the ears on these phones would drive me bonkers (even more than I already am ). Wearing glasses is bad enough; I don't want anything else sitting on my ears.

Not to say there aren't some that would like them, but for others they could be pretty annoying.

The rubber earhooks that the JVC HA-EB75 uses are very comfortable. i find the plastic earhooks that other manufacturers use to be annoying.
