JVC Flats review: Inexpensive headphones that sound great for the money

I came away pleasantly surprised.

At first glance, the Flats look like a slight upgrade over a pair of headphones you might get on the plane. Under closer inspection, they're a couple notches up from that but they still look and feel like inexpensive headphones.

But they are lightweight and should offer a comfortable fit for most people. They're an on-ear model, so the earpads sit on your ear and don't entirely cover it. People with bigger ears -- and bigger heads -- may find these a little too small. But I had no problem with them.

As far as extra features go, there really aren't any. They don't come with a carrying case or have an inline remote with microphone. The headphones are all you get, and while they don't fold up, as their name implies, they do fold flat. They're designed to be slipped into a bag, but I advise you to keep them in some sort of cover or case if you want them to last a while. The glossy finish on the earpieces -- they come in multiple color options -- will get scuffed up over time and the headband doesn't seem incredibly sturdy. But to reiterate, I paid a little over $12 (with tax) for the Flats, so I wasn't expecting too much.

Aside from their price, the best part about them is their sound -- for the money, anyway. These sound as good as many $30 to $50 'phones I've tried. Their sound is well balanced -- they don't push the treble or bass -- and they're fairly clean and detailed. The bass isn't huge but it's ample. I was able to wear them for an hour without experiencing any listening fatigue, which I consider a good sign.

The headphones do have their limitations. You'll get a little distortion in the high and low ends, especially when you crank the volume. In other words they're not that clean-sounding. But hey, for $12 they sound pretty darn good.

Steve Guttenberg, our resident audio guru, agreed. I had him try the headphones (without telling him the price) and he said he liked them. After I told him they were $12, he was shocked. "That's all?" he asked. "That's all," I said.

Conclusion
If you're someone who's on a very tight budget and wants headphones that sound decent and are relatively comfortable and lightweight, you can't miss with the JVC Flats. They're also a good choice for kids and people who are prone to losing headphones. Cosmetically, I like them better than the Panasonic HT-21s, which are also a good low-budget pick at $5; the Flats also sound a little better. By contrast, the -- another 4-star, $20-ish pair of headphones -- offers sound quality similar to that of the Flats, but isn't quite as comfortable.

To be clear, however, the Flats don't have the sound or build quality of more-expensive headphones that cost closer to $100. But at $12 to $14, depending on the color, they're definitely a bargain. I may just pick up a second pair.

What are the JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless?

The JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless are affordable headphones for those who want a wireless pair on a budget.

They look good, are comfortable, and wireless performance is great. Available for around £30-40 online, they’re a solid choice.

However, as you might expect for a cheaper headphone, sound quality isn’t perfect. Stodgy bass and mids mean the JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless aren’t for the picky listener.

JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless – Design and comfort

The JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless are petite on-ear headphones. Their cups barely cover your ears, making them far lower-key than models such as the AKG Y50BT.

Since they’re incredibly light, they’re also quite comfortable. The pads use standard foam rather than softer memory foam, and there’s only a ring of it. Despite this, you can wear the JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless for several hours without suffering achey ears.

There’s zero padding on the headband, however. Since these headphones are so lightweight, the band doesn’t actually exert much obvious pressure. Nevertheless, a little bit of foam would have been welcome.

JVC-HA-S20BT

The JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless are a basic pair of headphones, consistent with the price. They don’t fold up, although the cups do swivel around by 90 degrees to sit ‘flat’, hence the name. That they sit relatively flat on your ears is also important. These are good-looking headphones, particularly if you want a low-key but stylish appearance.

The cups are two-thirds matte, one-third glossy, in order to avoid too generic a design. However, the matte finish isn’t particularly hard-wearing. As such, after a while it starts to turn a little shiny – like a cheap suit. You’ll have to treat the JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless fairly well to keep them looking their best.

JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless – Features and Wireless

There are no extra features here, which is no surprise considering the cost. They use micro-USB for charging, and the headphones sport three neat little on-cup buttons that control volume and playback.

The JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless don’t include a wired output, aptX, particularly strong isolation or active noise cancellation. They don’t excel in noisy environments.

11-hour battery life is unremarkable, too, particularly with headphones such as the Audio-Technica ATH-S200BT capable of lasting 40 hours. This pair could do with a 3.5mm socket, so you’re not left music-less if you forget to charge.

In use, however, these headphones are entirely solid. Their Bluetooth reliability is good, and their controls are easy to use.

JVC-HA-S20BT

JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless – Sound quality

The JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless aren’t top-performers, but they’re inoffensive. Most of the problems are in the lower third of sound. Bass is a little leaden; it doesn’t sound taut or fast to react. There’s quite a lot of extra mid-bass, which acts as sound padding, thickening audio up too much.

Add a lack of mid-range detail and texture, and the JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless end up sounding a little vague and undisciplined.

Should we expect high-end sound in a £30 wireless headphone? Of course not. However, the House of Marley Positive Vibration 2 are clearer and more detailed, and cost only £10 more. They look and feel higher-end, too.

The JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless do avoid the issues that should turn you off a pair completely, though. Bass quality may not be impressive, but neither is it boomy or ultra-dominant. And the treble isn’t at all sibilant or harsh.

These headphones won’t reveal a new side to songs you’ve loved for years, but they do offer an easy-going listen – and that might be sufficient for those who want a set of headphones for their commute to work or for runs.

JVC-HA-S20BT

Why buy the JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless?

The JVC HA-S20BT Flats Wireless look good, if you take care of them, plus they don’t have the Bluetooth connectivity issues of most older budget wireless headphones. However, you might want to consider spending just a little more for better sound quality.

There’s a certain stodginess to these headphones that doesn’t affect the Marley Positive Vibration 2 , which are a great buy at £40.

Verdict

Ultra-light headphones that look the part, but sound is a little stodgy
