JVC, also known as the Japan Victor Company, was founded in 1927. It is most well known for manufacturing Japan’s first televisions as well as inventing the VHS video recorder. As years went on, and technology available to manufacturers increased, JVC continued to introduce new products and technologies, often very much ahead of the curve for their time.
Today the company offers a myriad of products from camcorders to home theatre projectors to speaker systems and headphones. Today we are going to take an in-depth look at the JVC Gumy (HA FX9BT) earbuds. These are one of JVC headphone options in their widely popular Gumy line-up. These products are recognized usually by their bright colors and the “Gumy” elastomer earbuds that they sport. Styles in the Gumy line range include specific designs for sports and fitness and provide both in and out of ear styles.
The HA FX9BT are earbuds that have a lot of value in a small package. They provide users with a high-quality sound-isolating listening experience in bright, funky colors at a price point that you almost can’t say no to. They feature a snug in-ear design with an elastomer exterior that screams comfort and durability. The 9mm drivers provide a great jumping off point for the fantastic sound quality and the stereo design provides crisp sounds that had reviewers raving. Let’s dive a bit deeper into the HA FX9BT style, see what it has to offer consumers and if it can compare to the other widely-praised Gumy line products.
-Affordable price tag

One other common complaint we came across in our research was that the rather large battery holder on the wire of the earbuds makes them quite heavy. Some users found this to be annoying and uncomfortable, especially when the weight of the wire would pull the buds out of their ears. For the most part, however, the elastomer “gumy” material that makes up the earbuds themselves was praised by users.
