JVC HA-S31M-A and JVC HA-S31BT - cheap headphones specs and product review

JVC headphones

We went to the tech store the other day and we were surprised to see that there are literally hundreds of new stereo headphones for sale. And the variety of brands and types is so big... wired, wireless, earbuds, closed-type and many more. 

Today we are reviewing two cheap models made by JVC - the HA-S31M-A which is the wired version and the HA-S31BT which as the name suggests connects via Bluetooth.

And here are the most important product specifications of the cable version JVC HA-S31M-A:

JVC HA-S31M-A and JVC HA-S31BT - Product price

As expected the JVC HA-S31M is the cheaper one with a price tag of around £20. The more expensive  HA-S31BT will cost you some £10 more.

Whether you will pick the cable or the Bluetooth version of these JVC headphones you will definitely make a good deal considering the prices mentioned.

As far as the sound quality, you should expect decent sound but far from the best-in-class performance. That is quite expected, these are nice looking budget on-ear headphones after all.
