JBL Tune 110 - the best cheap headphones

Are the JBL Tune 110 really the best cheap in-ear headphones on the market today? We think YES - our opinion and consumer review

It is just couple of days since we bought the budget in-ear headphones JBL Tune 110 and honestly we couldn't wait to post their first review. The reason why? Well yes, they are really that cheap and yes, they are really that good. 

First impressions
JBL Tune 110 in-ear headphone with mic

Our first impression with the JBL Tune 110 was very positive. First of all they were presented in very solid and nice looking package that says quality even before unboxing the earphones themselves. 
Inside we found the beautiful and very small JBL Tune 110 set of in-ear headphones which was bough for under $10 (unbelievable, isnt't). 

Who could have thought that we would be able to by original JBL by Harman product for under $10 and that wouldn't be some kind of scum.

Sound quality
As you can see by its main features we don't have any game changing technology here or any significant sound quality breakthrough. What impressed us most is the balanced quality sound which really shined when listening to YouTube songs.

JBL Tune 110 consumer review

The overall sound quality is very good, with good base, mids and highs. The sound quality is probably one of the best in this price range. 

Just a quick side note here. The main reason to buy and test the was the fact we needed upgrade of the cheap Philips In-Ear SHE 3850 headphones which were no good, especially for listening to music (our personal opinion).

Comfort of use
From the short experience we have with the JBL Tune 110 we can confirm these headphones are quite comfortable, even for couple of hours of non-stop use.

Here we should also note that the Tune 110 has built-in microphone, so we were able to make some calls with good to average quality.

The cheapest we have seen the JBL Tune 110 is $8 which is just unbelievable value for money earphones.

There is also a wireless Bluetooth version, named Tune 110BT which are a bit more expensive.
