These Jam Transit HX-HP420BK headphones feature Bluetooth wireless technology with a range of up to 30' for flexible listening. The rechargeable battery allows up to 11 hours of playtime per charge for extended use.
Can't be beat for the price.

For $50, this is an amazing choice for Bluetooth headphones. I purposefully waited a few weeks after I went backpacking in Europe to give a decent review.
No audiophile will go within 100 feet of Bluetooth headsets because the loss in audio quality is inescapable with the technology. But if you are looking for a pair of wireless headphones that sound good, fit comfortably, and have decent battery life, look no further.
There are only a couple definitive cons that I can think of. The range of the Bluetooth isn't as far as stated, as I would occasionally get hiccups when it was just 15-20 feet down the hall or room I was in; but if my device was packed in my backpack or in my jean pockets there wasn't an issue. The battery life was slightly below the quoted tiime; I experienced approximately 7-8 hours per charge over the timespan of 2 days while turning the headset off between uses and never exceeding roughly 75% volume.
I have relatively delicate ears that can be irritated by wearing cheap headphones, but these fit comfortably and I only felt the need to give my ears a rest after 3+ hours of use.
For everyday use I highly recommend these headphones, all others are more or less a waste of the additional money they cost.

JAM Transit Wireless Headphones (Black)
I had been spending more time at the library doing boring research, and I needed music to stimulate my brain. I first tried using Samsung earbuds with my Galaxy S-4. They worked fine, but the cord was annoying and the into-the-ear-canal sensation was tiring. Next, I tried Sony over the ear standard headphones. The sound was great, but once again - the cord was annoying. Finally, I saw the Jam Transit HX-HP420 Bluetooth Headphones in the store and decided to give them a try. I must say that I have been pleasantly surprised by this product.
* Relatively low cost
* Great volume
* Simple controls
* Sturdy construction
* Relatively comfortable
* Ubiquitous micro-USB charging port
* Long battery life per charge
* Silent to others even at high volume
* Signal breakup during excessive movement
* Call-drops when out of doors
* Bluetooth only - no AUX jack connection
* Simple controls
If you are considering this model, keep in mind that it functions better as an audio streaming headphone for music than as a cell phone headset. Calls tend to drop unexpectedly while out of doors, and you cannot hear your own voice. It works well for streaming audio, but can become uncomfortable after a few hours because of its weight. I do not recommend it for jogging or working out at the gym.

Man oh man
Posted by: Lorenzo from: on
I can't say enough about these headphones. I was told about these headphones from a fella I met at the gym and I can't believe my ears. I personally use the powerbeats. I like them because they actually hook over the ear. HOWEVER, the JAM headphones are some of if not the BEST pair of headphones I've ever used. The bass is deep but not overpowering. The highs are crisp which the perfect amount of mids. For 35$ nothing comes close. My powerbeats cost 199$ and 100$ refurbished and sadly don't stack up. The JAM headphones reach a higher volume level, last a lot longer on a single charge, and even come with a cord in case you wanna plug em in for whatever reason. Best money I've spent on headphones bar none. I've had bose, sony, beats etc but dollar for dollar, JAM has em beat and I hope that my review persuades somebody to just give em a try.

Cannot go wrong
Posted by: oldmanriver from: on
For the price the sound is excellent. Preforms better than others that cost twice as much. To keep my daughter from stealing them I had to get a set for her. I use mine in the gym, doing yard work, cleaning house and just relaxing on the deck,

Band kept breaking
Posted by: JMartin from: on
Was very happy with them until the band snapped, leaving them unwearable. JAM sent me another pair, same thing happened... I have a small head too, so I don't know what the deal is. Sound is good, they can get a little uncomfortable after a while. Not sure if anyone else has had the same issue with the band breaking.

good FOR THE PRICE
Posted by: JustSomeCustomer from: on
good quality sound (compered to others)
nice, soft ear pads
looks "high end"
keep outside sounds out well
great battery life
battery charges very quickly
the head phones already have a bass booster in them, so if you have your EQ set to R&B or Rock, it can make the quality sound bad.
The buttons can be hard to find but ones you get used to them it is no problem.
All n' all;
these are a keeper, they are not perfect (because of the bass quality) but i do like them, I can easily workout with out having to deal with a cord getting in the way. When i bought mine, it had a problem with the left ear (it was probably dropped in the store) so i returned it and got another one. and it did not have a problem.

They're light, stylish and they come in different colors. Sound quality is amazing when listening to mp3 or streaming quality music & video. I'm a musician, so sound quality is important. I did need to adjust the equalizer to add more high end. I think it sounds more balanced when you do this. They are comfortable very light and the earpads are very soft. Range is excellent, well over 40 feet. Took only a few seconds to pair, now it pairs automatically every time. Wish it had a 3.5mm audio interface. They're reasonably comfortable over long periods. In summary, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.
