Way Too Many Issues

Pauly, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I bought these for working out at the gym, wanting to get rid of the hassle of trying to workout with wired earbuds; however, while the Syncros Reflect BTs did resolve the issue of wires, too many other issues arose in the short time I used them. First of all, I found them very difficult to properly fit in my ear, and once I did get them in securely, they were VERY uncomfortable - my ears felt like I had been wearing 1st gen iPod earbuds, the hard plastic kind.
  • Pros: Great Sound
  • Cons: Uncomfortable

Awesome, until it died.

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Synchros Reflect BT ear buds in November 2014. They are awesome, they are comfortable to wear, audio sound quality is excellent, button response is nice, phone quality for the other person on a call is about average for what people have told me but since I don't use it for phone calls, it is not a deal breaker. HOWEVER, the other day at the gym, they died. They will not hold a charge, or connect via Bluetooth to my phone.

On the fence

Fish, JBL

  • Excerpt: I bought these a few months ago and didn't end up getting to use them for a few weeks, then the holidays and blah blah... the short assessment without a story: - very short battery life - must charge everyday prior to workout - must hold in right hand or stationary on machine to reduce skipping - does not always pickup Bluetooth source right away - must forget and re-link - freebit (ear tips) fall off when taking out of ears and I've lost the left ear large freebit.

waste of money

Scotty380, JBL

  • Excerpt: They won't fall out of your ear but even with the biggest ear bud the fit is not great and external noise ruins the sound quality (which, when you hold them in place is excellent), I even tried them with the left and right buds in opposite ears to see if I could get a better fit. I used them while riding and with my iPod in my back pack the sound would cut out whenever I turned my head more than 45 degrees left.

Love these things

  • Excerpt: I bought something similar for my husband and I thought about getting myself a pair too but I am so glad I did not. These are awesome! I can run with these without the bulkiness, the sound is good, and they seem to be perfect!

Stopped Working after one month!

fabiojb, JBL
22 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought it on NYC last December. In mid January I started using the headphones. It sounded greated, and had I good fit. About a week ago, it stopped working. I can't turn it on. It is charged, as the blue light indicates when I plug it on the USB. But the buttons don't seem to work, so I can't turn it on and connect to my iPhone. Very frustrating!!

They work as advertised

Bryan, JBL
19 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I have taken these headphones for a few runs and a few cycle rides and have decided to shelve them. Due to the weight of the headphone (actually very light) and the cantilever effect, there is an unbearable (IMO) noise transfer of the movement of the headphones into the ear (basically a thud with every step). There is a significant amount of wind noise (as it cuts past the edges of the headphones).

poor bluetooth connection

  • Excerpt: these headphones protrude too far outside your ears so nothing can be worn over them comfortably... they lose bluetooth connection every minute and thirty seconds.

Mr. Racquetball

Louie1217, JBL
19 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I have owned these for about a month and love the sound quality, fit and the convenience of being wireless. They stay in my ear while playing racquetball. I do get a skip periodically when my phone is in my pocket. When I have my phone in the arm band, no such problem. Just recently the volume raises on its own, then it starts beeping because the volume is at max and the headphones don't turn off. I think it's a bad switch on the cord so I must return them.
