The Good: The JVC Flats are very inexpensive on-ear headphones that are lightweight, comfortable, and sound quite good for the money. They fold flat and come in multiple colors. The Bad: They look like the inexpensive headphones they are, and they don't come with any sort of carrying case. The Bottom Line: Though they look a little cheap, the JVC Flats are lightweight, comfortable on-ear headphones that sound surprisingly good for sub-$15 headphones. I'm forever on the lookout for inexpensive headphones that sound good and are comfortable to wear. As part of that quest, I purchased a pair of JVC Flats for $11.99 and took them for a spin. 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.
