The Good The iLuv City Lights in-ear headphones are comfortable, attractive looking, and seem to be built reasonably well for their ultralow price tag. They also pump out a lot of bass.
The Bad Their high-end (treble) performance is lackluster, so they lack clarity; no inline remote/microphone for making cell-phone calls.
The Bottom Line For around $7, the iLuv City Lights are well-designed budget earphones, but they push the bass a little too hard at the expense of clarity.
Lots of bass, little clarity for seven bucks
In my quest to review budget in-ear earphones, I've managed to dig up some very good products for less than $10, including the Panasonic
The City Lights have a similar design to both the Panasonic and the JVC, but this is a more bass-heavy earphone that's got some thump to it. I didn't like it as much as its more natural and balanced-sounding competitors, but if bigger bass is what you're after, you'll certainly get a lot of it for your money with this earphone.
Design and features
Like the ErgoFit RP-HJE120 and Gumy Plus, these are sort of hybrid earphones; part hard earbud like your basic Apple earbud and part soft bud. For all I know, they're all made in the same factory in China.
