I have owned these iem’s for neary 9 months. They have a great balanced sound, and can handle hip hop bass with no distortion. I primarily listen to rock and find these well suited. I can see where the thin cable might cause issue for some. I guess i am just extra cautious with mine as they’ve made it through 9 months in afghanistan in great shape. I spent $100 on mine in a big box retailer store, and at that price point might have some reservation making any suggestions towards these over any other brands, but in the $40-50 range these are a fantastic value.
The headphones sound great and are mostly very high quality, with the exception of the jack. The three year warranty is a nice, and i suspect i will be using it quite often. I ordered mine in january and have needed the warranty twice already, due to the design of the jack. I have incurred the expense of returning these to the company twice, and have had to make do without my headphones while awaiting replacement. I enclosed the following letter with my second pair and also submitted the letter to the company via their web site. The emailed response stated (quite curtly i thought):’unfortunately, we cannot upgrade your headphones to the pro model. We will be shipping the replacement headphones fedex 2 day air. ‘letter:enclosed please find a defective pair of jamz headphones. I originally purchased the headphones in january 2010. Right out of the box the original pair had a problem with the jack – the metal sleeve was completely loose.
I go through a lot of earphones because i do manual work and they take a beating so i decided to get some tough ones. In fact in demonstrations of the product they pound the earphones with a heavy hammer and they don’t break. They are precision machined single-billet metal housing that cancels unwanted vibrations for clean sound the sound quality is quite good with good response. Rugged strain relief helps protects the cable and withstands the heavy use i give it. I sometimes have to turn the volume down a little because the push out the sound so well. The only problem with these and any similar type ear buds is that i have a hard time fitting them into my ear canals. However they come with a number of different sized rubber tips for a custom fit. They seal in the noise well with their tight fit. The bass response is great but some is lost because of their small size.

, So far so good
Thanks you, for bussines, produckt heardphone is verry good, gl for you life ;)))(((((((((((( ccc aaaa bbb i like goob songs, with your producta ;).
These guys definitely have great bass response for what they are. I mean its only 1/2 an inch of actual headphone construction. They’re small yet deliver such a high quality bass. You should buy these if you’re a traveling dj like me. Small & compact and get the job done. They are a bit uncomfortable, but when you’re playing live it wont really matter as long as you have a headphone amplifier on your laptop. When you play these loud, they sound even better. You will get adjusted to them quickly. Check the phones out, they’re worth it.
These are very good headphones. A lot better than the cheap plastic types prevalent at most local electronics stores. I’m buying my 3rd pair (unfortunately due to earbud phones being so small they are easily misplaced or dropped if you travel a lot). I’m sure there have been manufacturing issues with this model but there always is with all electronics these days. All i can say is that in my personal experience each pair that i have purchased has lasted me over 3 years without any degradation in sound quality or having them fall apart). Each pair i have owned has worked just fine while working out in the gym or running. The jacks do tend to be weak points (but i have noticed that with all headphone jacks and it is due to cable/jack design) they wear out due to normal abuse like dropping your mp3 player or phone and the jack gets yanked out while you are walking etc. I’m going to buy another pair (to leave at the office). I can’t speak to issues some other people have had with these earbuds but in my experience if you are careful with your electronics and take care to not yank or destroy these they will last a long time. It seems to me that some folks equate ‘metal’ housing with ‘should be drop/stomp/fire/water/catastrophic abuse proof’.
I have owned these headphone before i purchased these. The first ones were broken in an accident. These were as great as the first set, very accurate reproduction of sound and lows(bass) are more present than in other headphones of this same price range.
I bought these after using the monster lil jamz, which are the smaller version of these. I do think that the sound is better on these, but there are some drawbacks to these earphones. Overviewthese cost between $60-$100 depending where you buy them. They are placed below monster’s excellent monster turbine and above the monster lil’ jamz. Monster makes a big deal about how well made these earphones are built and gives them a 3 year warranty because of it. Soundthese sound very good for the price. They sound substantially better than the lil’ jamz. The mids and highs are pretty clear(much better than the ibeats for example) and the bass is decent, though if you want a lot of bass you might want to go somewhere else like the ibeats or a v-moda. I overall think that the sound is pretty good for the price, but by no stretch is it the best. Comfort/fitthese are quite heavy and bulky for in-ears.
Bought it to replace an old jbl, also good, but already showing signs that it is going to stop at any time. Well, the jamz has a superb sound. It really surprised me for it’s quality and the way it is built. You have the feeling that is a professional earphone, not an intermediary level accessory, as they present the product. Bass is strong, but balanced giving the music pleasure to listen to. The same could be said of the balance as a whole: every tone seems to be right and the music fills the ear in a deep but harmonic way. They are a bit heavy, so it is not the kind of earphone you want to use for running or the gym. It is more suitable for the time you want to relax, get away from the world for a while and enjoy your tunes. There’s not much more to say. I believe there’s no way to regret buying it. I am very happy and highly recommend.
Update: i’d like to add to my original review below that i highly recommend getting the monster super tips sampler pack to go along with these. The key to these headphones is the fit, i thought they were good with the ones that came. . Man was i wrong, i tried a few sizes of the foam super tips and was blown away all over again after having a proper fit. If you buy these, the super tips are in my opinion a necessity. The super tips also work with many other brands of headphone. __________________________________the first thing i want to point out is the 3 year replacement warranty, obviously monster stands by it’s product’s build quality. Also on the website you can see them beat the daylights out of these and they still work. Once you get the fit right you’ll have clear sound. I’ve been using them with a zune hd and it’s changed my world. They’re by far the best i’ve hooked into it.
The jamz are honestly the best pair of earphones i have ever had. Very high quailty build, only downside is lack of variety in buds included with the jamz.
The sound is amazing and the way they fit my ears is perfect and for the price you can’t go wrong.
Not as good earphones as i thought could of bought better ones for the money that i spent on these but overall they sounded okay.
It doesn’t like what i hoped, no much bass. And i feel regredit buying it. It[s not worth this priceit’s too dear.
I used to own a pair of bose in-ear headphones, and they were good, although fragile. The cord came loose at the plug and sound began to cutoff after a year or two of basic use. Nothing too serious, just put them in and played. I recently bought beats solo headphones by monster and i liked their attitude and their products. They care about quality in all aspects of their product, especially something as simple yet important as the cable. So when my bose cable broke and i began to look at new in ear headphones for travel and exercise i remembered monster over other name brands and found these. The jamz were at a good price, being in that range where the headphones aren’t cheap but aren’t professional grade. Quality consumer level i’d say. I got these today and have been listening to a variety of songs and just seeing how they feel, how they sound, and i’ve concluded so far that they were a good purchase. The sound is nice, clear, with a good range and some base.
The ones we purchased from monster in july broke (now mine have recently too). We are pleased to see they are the exact ones and hope they last longer.
These are very comfortable headphones and i hardly notice them in my ears. They cancel out outside noise pretty well also. But most importantly they sound amzing. They make everything sound 10x better. Plus they have a good bass in them. These are a great price for how good these are and i 100% recommend them to anyone who enjoys music.
I had been shopping around for some high quality earbuds for the past few months, and so when i purchased the monster jamz, i was truly surprised at the quality of the sound and the comfort. When the founder says these are ‘in ear speakers’ he isn’t kidding. I never thought i’d ever say i found sound quality better than bose, but now i have. Even the cds i have ripped that were recorded from analog tapes sound great, and at a much lower volume. Monster jamz are quite impressive, and the price (well below that of some retailers) was awesome.
I bought the monster jamz a couple of days ago for office use. On the first day i was quite disappointed as i was not getting any bass and the fit wasn’t proper. I then decided not to be lazy and try out all the provided sleeves. They sound amazing; clear lows, mids and highs. If this is entry level for monster, then i shudder to think how their flagship earphones sound. If you are reading this and still pondering whether or not to buy the jamz, then don’t.
We’ll start with the pros first. Solid metal, and metal accents, including metal enforced strain resistance. These scream style and durability all in one. These are built better than the turbines i exchanged for. At first i was unimpressed, they seemed muddy out of the box. But after listening for a good 12 hours or so, the sound improved tremendously. The highs became much clearer and so did the mids. So i got strong balanced sound, which is what i prefer. There’s enough bass to add punch, but not muddy or overpowering.
Bought a pair of these at fry’s electronics yesterday – they are amazing. Great sound quality, deep and resonating bass. Great noise cancellation as well. My previous headphones were quite loud and would often irritate people around me, and these earbuds get really loud but no one around me can hear them.Solid design – feels very sturdy. I hope they last longer than all of my other headphones (i usually replace every 6 months lol).
Although wait about three more weeks to get it, but it value that price, and value that quarlity.
These are the earbuds i have had for 18 months and i have made some discoveries. The sound is impressive and as they ‘loosen up’ they improve. They go from really good to really really good. The silicon tips they come with take some juggling to find the best fit and the buds are solid metal, a bit heavy but not cumbersome. They fall out more easily and become uncomfortable compared to others i’ve used but again in time that becomes less of an issue. These are not what you wear when running but walking is not a problem. I went after-market and replaced the tips with comply t-400s and everything i’ve mentioned earlier becomes moot. These tips transformed the sound, fit and comfort. Now they stay put for hours without any discomfort during any reasonable activities. The jamz are every bit the equal of my monster turbines and in many respects i like the jamz better.
