JBL Roxy Reference 430 Headphones Review

If you’re looking for a stylish pair of “over the ear” headphones, you may want to check out the latest line of Roxy’s headphones made by JBL; the Reference 430’s. They come in two different color matches; blue & green and pink & orange.

Let’s dive into the structure and style of the headphones. The headphone part (the green/pink outer part), the JBL logo parts on the side and the headband part are all plastic.

They seem durable but I quickly found that the parts which hold the metal that holds the headphone part connected to the headband is actually easy to break. I was playing around with them and it snapped apart. It’s easy to place back together, however, obviously a bit unstable.

The wire seems really durable, as long as they’re not chewed on, and they don’t seem to tangle at all while being moved around and stored.

The part of the headphones that touch your ears are cushioned by foam which is covered in a felt like material, as well as the headband part. Definitely a more comfortable material which doesn’t irritate your skin or bother you at all.

The headphones also come with a little traveling pouch which fits the headphones nicely. The outer part of the case is waterproof and the inside is a soft, cushiony felt-like material. Definitely a great add-on if you’re traveling. I used it on my trip to Las Vegas from North Carolina and it definitely came in handy. It was easy to fit my headphones in a small outer part of my bag for easy access. My boyfriend didn’t use a carrying case for his headphones, which are similar, and it was obnoxious dealing with the wire and storing his. Definitely a plus!

The look is definitely stylish and pretty cute in my opinion. They’re a nice pair of headphones, despite the plastic feel and bit of instability. The colors, I have the blue and green ones, are eye appealing and basically shout of uniqueness. I got a few looks while walking around wearing the headphones and they weren’t bad looks.

One of the things I found negative, besides the part where the part popped off, would be the fact that they do get a bit uncomfortable after wearing them for a long amount of time. I had a 4 hour flight and I definitely couldn’t sit having them on for too long. It may be that the ear part is a bit too small and just barely covers my whole ear (I don’t have that large of ears). I felt like they pressed on my ear lobe a bit too hard which irritated my ears after a while. Definitely not a great thing.

The sound, however, is pretty damn good. The bass is fantastic and they seem to cancel out a lot of the little noises in the background. Of course, if you have your music blasting, it’ll be hard to hear anything around you. Again, they’re great for traveling or sitting at home, lounging and listening to music.

Now if you’re looking to purchase these for yourself, a family member, friend or loved one, you’re able to do so by going here. On the site they have all the specs on the headphones and of course you can purchase them online. I’m not sure where you can buy them in stores (if they’re in the stores, I’m assuming PacSun) but I know they’re not actually available on the Roxy website, they’re only available on the JBL site.

The headphones, whether you purchase the blue and green or pink and orange, are $69.95 with free ground shipping (they were previously $79.95 so you’re saving a bit). Also, when you receive your headphones, they come with a 1 year warranty which can always come in handy!

Check ’em out for yourself! :)
