  • Summary: Would not purchase again. I bought $10 Bluetooth headphones from Burlington Coat Factory that still work after two years.
  • Pros: Great sound.
  • Cons: Didn't always connect to device smoothly. Great headphones for the time they worked. Came home from work tonight wanting to listen to some tunes on my iPad. Turned on, then they died. No activity light, no red light when plugged back into charger. Paid $50 only to see them go down to $29.99. Now ...

Wont turn on after being idle for 2 months

Rich S., Newegg
27 January 2016
  • Summary: I would not recommend this item to anyone. A waste of hard earned money. I thought that JBL was a good brand.
  • Pros: worked as advertised when I first got it, despite the terrible instructions.
  • Cons: This thing worked fine when I first got it. However I did not use them for a couple of months and when I did I could not pair the device. I figured the battery was low so I put it on the charger. I saw the red led so I figured it was charging. After a while on the charger I disconnected and tried...

Not comfortable at all.

Christopher H., Newegg
13 January 2016
  • Summary: I had to try and stretch them to fit my head. I wear a size 7 1/4 hat; I'm not exactly a giant. They hurt my ears after using them for a while. Sound quality was as expected, pretty good.
  • Pros: I like the orange color. Simple to use/pair.
  • Cons: Too small. Hurt my ears after an hour or so.

Great until they broke

Patrick M., Newegg
6 January 2016
  • Summary: Knowing what I know now I wouldn't buy them again. However if you are gentle and don't use them much, it might work out well. I used mine an average of 8 hours a day between work and the gym almost everyday for 4 months
  • Pros: I used these headphones for phone calls and listening to music. I'd wear them around the office and it the gym. Super easy to connect bluetooth and switch from listening to music to taking phone calls. Comfortable for a couple hours at a time.
  • Cons: The plastic band broke where the metal plate is recessed in the plastic. The metal does not connect to anything so the only structural support is the two thin bands of plastic across the top. Not a great design

Good Value

  • Summary: Suspend your disbelief, you get $180 dollar Bluetooth headsset and arm band for a fraction of its regular price, or you get a high end name brand set for a little more than generic break in a week set.
  • Pros: Wireless Bluetooth headphones. Sound quality is great, battery life is 10-14 hours as advertised. They are a little tight; I do have a large head as far as hat sizes. That being said the are "action fit." They are designed for runners and people who are being physically active, so that make a lot...
  • Cons: Keep an eye on the cables they are proprietary to JBL or rare.

Great - until they died

Monica R., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Pros: Sound was great. I considered keeping them to use as a wired set when the battery / Bluetooth failed after 1 week.
  • Cons: Battery, Bluetooth failed after 1 week of use. I couldn't charge them, and there wasn't anyway to reset them. I tried charging on a few different USB chargers, still NG. Metered the cable and it was OK, so I assume it's the headset.
