However, they are rather flimsy; nothing has broken, and the elasticity might actually help them avoid getting broken in a bag... but I cannot shake the fact that they don't feel very sturdy.
The bigger issue for me is the fact that they have virtually no noise isolation. This is rather problematic for commuting, or using them in a coffee shop. Part of the issue is the fact that they are one of the smallest over-the-ear headphones I've ever seen (much smaller than I had anticipated): for my ears, they just don't do a very good job of covering them.
I bought these for $24, and after a week of owning them, I bought a pair of Sony over-the-ear headphones for $30 on-sale. I prefer the Sony headphones, as they have better noise isolation and fit my bigger ears better. However, I keep these JVC's around for travelling when I need to pack light. I was hoping to use them as my primary headphones, and they are pretty good, but they unfortunately aren't quite as good as I had hoped.
Sound quality: is perfect for me: good mids, mid-highs and sweet strong mid-bass and bass. However, the bass is reasonably tight, precise and smooth (try with this: http://www.amazon.com/Thunder-Smv/dp/B001BP4U5O/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top?ie=UTF8)
They do not have aggressive high frequencies (no crazy "shinny" trebles) which is perfect for me since I wanted a headphone that I could listen without ear fatigue (45 to 60 min at once).
Build: decent for the price, but they feel light and I am not sure about long-term reliability: I think I'll be extra careful with these :-)
Comfort: Excellent (no pressure point on ears) but I wish the cord was of better quality and slightly longer.
Overall: Extremely happy – will buy them again.

Not great sound quality. I've had them less than one year, have taken pretty good care of them and one of the earpieces just snapped off.Published 10 days ago by Amazon Customer
Sound is good for the inexpensive price. Mid range is good, high ok and low muddy. The headphone is lightweight and fold flat, which is comfortable to wear. The ear pad is soft. Read morePublished 1 month ago by itauditor
The arms are held in place with a small piece of plastic and became detatched so very often. Had to open arms and reattachPublished 1 month ago by Nabsterdamus

I can see why people would say they look cheap but doesn't bother me

Comfy, lightweight, and fit in an Iphone even with a hard case on it.Published 5 months ago by Nikovich
Liked it initially. Then after two weeks or so, the sound started getting cracked. Not at all satisfied.Published 5 months ago by Soham Sinha
