Bottom Line

The stylish, yet frail looking JVC HAS160B FLATS delivers great sound, but their lightweight build quality does seem to mean that it has some issues with durability.

THE JVC HAS160B FLATS on-ear headphone have received positive reviews for their comfort over shorter periods of use, their light and stylish design, and their sound which one user described as “beyond the price range.” Users also thought that the overall volume is solid and the bass is not over emphasized. However, a few breakages were reported due to what has been described as a fairly frail build quality. Users also pointed out that longer, extended periods of use can hurt your ears. The JVC HAS160B FLATS are good for shorter periods of use and offer good sound quality for the price, but their fragility may be a deal breaker for some.

    Though they look a little cheap, the JVC Flats are lightweight, comfortable on-ear headphones that sound surprisingly good for sub-$15 headphones.
