You should be able to find JVC Marshmallows (HA-FX33) at best buy, for around $20. Skullcandy is, for the most part, trash.
post #3 of 25
JVC Marshmallows (FX33/34) or JVC Air Cushions (FX66), shop around, Walmart/Best Buy/Circuit City/Target generally carries them in stores. You can then do the Kramer mod on the Marshmallows if you feel the bass is too bloated, and there's also the FX66 mod for the Air Cushions if you want deeper bass.

Edit: I agree with Nam that the Skullcandies are terrible.

okay FIRST off lets get this straight!


#1) not all Earbuds will work in your iPhone because of the headphone jack location on the iPhone. (unless you have an adapter)

---- now considering you have An adapter for your iPhone -------

#2) Although i would not buy this IN STORE (since you cannot wait for the order, you should - combine with the 12% off coupon and go get it at BB) Shure sound isolating ear-buds FTW. so get a good pair of SHURE ear-buds

#3) from experience MOST skullcandy earphonse are terrible

#4) make use of the bestbuy 10/12% off coupon

#5) JVC marsh mellow earbuds are good for the average person.

I was wondering if someone was gonna post something like that. Thanks guys, so JVC is a good brand and at $20 thats pretty cheap. Do you think they be better than the normal iphone buds? Will they take high volume better?

He said he can't order online, not quick enough.


The Marshmallows are much better than the stock iPhone headphones, and you shouldn't need to drive them as loud because they isolate you from the outside world. Be careful with high volumes, especially with IEMs, you can easily damage your hearing.

Well i have all that member best buy coupon stuff, and i have a $10 gift card to target so i'll hit those two up first. The marshmallows and Air cushions look at least by the specs that they would perform about the same, is that true? They say on their website that they are iphone compatible, but if they arent I'll get an adapter.
