I purchased this headset to use at the gym. My previous pair was POM 100 and they would slip out of my ear because they did not have the ear loops to hold them in place.
Let me say right of the bat, I'm not a sound expert. I'm the guy that can't tell the difference in the sound of a .wav file and a .mp3 file. But I can tell the difference between the sound of a record player, cassette player, and a CD.
1. The sound. To me, these sound great and have much better bass than the POM 100.
2. Easy pairing. I've paired these to my phone and tablet without any issue.
3. Call sound. People sound clear to me and they say I sound good to them. Now, I wouldn't recommend using them all day for work and conference calls, but to grab a quick call at the Gym, they work great.
4. They stay in the ear when exercising. While using the elliptical and lifting weights, they have never come out.
5. Price. I'm a little biased here because I used a $30 in reward points and got these for $10. But still, $40 for these headsets is still pretty darn good.
6. I like the volume and play buttons right there on the ear. Yes it makes it a little heavier but I really do not like those buttons on the cable. I always have a hard time finding it and I'll press the play button instead of the volume up or down.
7. Now I know this is a small thing but it went up in cool points when I found this out... You see the little blue area on each side? Well, those are magnets, you can clip them together and they hold in place. So when you take them out of your ears, you can clasp the ends together and they won't slip off your neck. I thought that was pretty cool.
8. I sweat a bit in the gym but so far, no issues with that on the headset.
9. The ear loops! They make sure the stay in and on my ear.
1. For extended use, I could see that they could feel a little heavy on your ears.
Not really sure about battery life as I usually charge them after every gym visit.
Overall, I'm really enjoying them and recommend them for purchase.

Do not buy these
Posted by: Nikk from: on
This pair was my third pair in two years. My first pair were great just stopped holding a charge. My second pair stopped holding a charge a lot faster then the first pair. The third pair were very difficult to get them to turn on let alone for the blue tooth to work and within 3 days they wouldn't hold a charge and during my run shut off completely. I'm so disappointed.

"Beats by Who???"
Posted by: HarlemBreeze152 from: on
I just discovered this hidden gem of a find for 1/5 of the cost of what PowerBeats actually cost with all of the heart and performance. I had no idea that Homedeics (the folks that bought us the iHome iphone/ipod dock from 3 years ago) would bring us a product so dope at the fraction of the price of the technology and actually delivers. The unit is very easy to operate and pairs with your cellphone and or tablet in seconds for a superb listening experience. I listen to all music from Rock to Classical, to Jazz and the 80 mm drivers delivers crisp vibrant tones of well-balanced music no mater whatever your genre preference. Suprizingly enough I was very impressed to hear how these headphones hold their own when listening to bass-heavy tones of R&B, Hip-Hop and Regge. Unlike the PowerBeats by Dre, these headphones stay in my ear even during jogging or when I'm cycling in the park even without the supplied ear clips that come included in the packaging. I really appreciate the sound isolation that these headfones have especially for me, a NYC subway rider. I use these headphones daily in my commute to work to drown out the noisy sound of the train and surrounding conversations, something that the PowerBeats couldnt seem to do due to the fact that their buds didn't seem to stay completely in my ear which lead to hearing external sounds from outside along with my music. One of the best headphone purchases that I copped in a long time. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.

Wireless Jam Transit Mini Buds
Posted by: Alvin from: on
Purchased these Bluetooth headphones a few days ago. Paid 39.99 and they are worth every penny. Don't bother buying Beats, or Jaybirds. These are hands down an over achiever when it comes to bluetooth sound, fit, and price. Bass is incredible, fit is grat. I have used these on a treadmill running for over an hr and they stay in place without any problem. I must say that it is best to use the head clip that comes with it to keep the cord tight to eliminate any slack pulling on the ear buds as you run. Walking without the clip was no problem. Buy them and enjoy them.

Great audio but...
Posted by: lhka132 from: on
Great audio. Unfortunately, if you have small earlobes and want to use this for running or working out, expect the earbuds to fall off very often. Even if you use the hook for the ears. Otherwise, this product is great. Easy to connect with devices. Used it for MacBook Pro and LG G3.

Pleasantly Surprised, good sound.
Posted by: LordLugard from: on
Walked in with the intention of getting something completely different and ended up with the Transit Mini. Never heard of the brand before but the price was eye catching.
So, where does it stand? First off, it has good bass, very good bass. I've used lots of bluetooth stereo earbuds (which i prefer over huge cans and the like) and was never pleased with their sound output. I currently use a Plantronics BackBeat Go 1st gen (just terrible, battery life and sound) and didn't have high hopes for the Jams Transit Mini. I was shocked and surprised at the sound, which shockingly rivaled my wired Incipio earbuds. Good treble, good bass, balanced audio, comfortable for periods of time (i commute), doesn't hurt my ears one bit.
Haven't tested out voice calling yet because i mainly use it for music playing/video watching.
Very Impressed and satisfied so far.

Sweet headset for the price
Posted by: Funyguy91 from: on
I really like the Jam - Transit Mini Wireless Earbud! They are perfect for what I use them for. Between traveling, working out, cleaning the house, I can put them on and focus on my activities. Decent sound for the price I paid and the run time last me all day. The only down fall is it picks up a fair amount of ambient noise when talking on the phone with people. All said and done I am very happy with my purchase.

I was looking for something that I could take the gym and use that had the Bluetooth capability. I looked at a number of headphones while I was in the Best Buy store, read reviews on the Best Buy app and after pondering a few different selections I chose Jam headphones. I have not had a problem with them and use them on daily basis. They stay in my ear while at the gym and I also use them around the house when watching TV or playing music. Only reason I did not give them a 5 star is because there is not such thing as perfect.

Does not work
Posted by: Member123 from: on
I purchased the Jam mini transit earbuds just before taking a trip overseas since that was what was recommended to me by the store personnel. The headphones worked for less than an hour and then would not charge at all. I have sent in a message to bestbuy support inquiring about the issue more than a week ago with no response whatsoever which is even more unprofessional on best buy's part. Overall avoid at all costs. It's a waste of money.
