    I bought these at the last minute before heading out of town for a two week business trip. I was looking for something I could wear to the gym and was tired of having the wire of my ear buds always getting in the way. I figured for $30 it was definitely low risk / high reward especially since I was surprised to hear I could return these within 14 days if not happy (surprised because this is essentially a wearable). I won't be returning them. I've owned the Bose sport headphones before and the wire is always the weak point with them. Actually I've owned 3 sets (2 under warranty and 1 under pro-rated warranty) because of the poor wire quality. The sound is great but not much use if they don't work. The JVC gummies are NOT Bose sound quality but I doubt that's what they were after. These are an economical solution that solves the problem of the wire (to phone) problem. But there's a lot more to these. It comes with two sizes of ear attachments. I like how they go into the canal a little but you can still hear the outside world (for safety, that's a good thing). JVC almost got it right here. The attachments don't have a hook on them to help secure them a little better so they can be jostled out if there a lot of perspiration involved. Each time I was on the treadmill they eventually started to slip a little. This did NOT become a major issue, just one they could improve upon if they decided to. The battery life is excellent. I usually use them about 3 hours a day and have not had them quit on me yet. They charge pretty quickly, too. The controls are OK. Big button for play/pause and individual direction buttons that serve dual purposes between volume control and skip forward/reverse. The button layout takes careful orientation with your finger each time you use them but that's to be expected with units this small. As mentioned before, the sound quality is OK, not fantastic. So, if you're an audiophile, I suspect you'd likely be disappointed. But for me using mainly during workouts, these are spot on perfect. They're well built, the wire in between the two ear units is a fairly sturdy one. I wasn't sure what to expect with having a wire there but it goes behind the neck and you rarely know it's there. Phone call voice quality is good, too. I asked some of the folks I called using the JVC's and they said it sounded good. Easy to pair with my phone. Overall, I'm giving these a 5-star rating because they fit my needs just about perfectly (and, I'm no audiophile) and the value is very, very high based upon the product fitting those needs and the cost of the ear buds. If you decide to give these a try, I would suggest you do, you have nothing to lose. Best Buy's return policy is something I really like about them. They give you an out but by doing so encourage you to try something you may not have otherwise. I believe you will enjoy these assuming they fit your needs.

    I tried one other pair of Bluetooth earbuds from another site before purchasing these. The other pair would not stay in my ears and didn't work well, so I sent them back. When I bought these, there were no reviews out yet since they were just released, so I took a shot, based on the JVC reputation. I have had them for about 3 weeks now, and I have not been disappointed! These things will not fall out of my ears, and they are comfortable. As another reviewer mentioned, definitely try both sets of covers because the set that came on it were uncomfortable after a while, but after changing to the other size, they haven't bothered me a bit. Connection is easy with my iPhone, and it sounds great! I have not tried using it with phone calls, so I can't speak to that ability. The only small complaints I have are the lack of bass, and I wish that the cord wasn't so stiff. The cord is angled straight down out of the bottom of the earbuds, and sometimes the cord catches my shoulder and pushes the earbud a bit. I feel like if the cord was angled back, coming out of the earbud, or if the cord was not as "springy", it wouldn't do that. It's just a minor annoyance and not enough to dock it a star. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase, and I would recommend these highly!

    A good value for the money, but only if on sale.

    I bought this item on sale and with my reward points, so it cost me $20.00. I would NOT pay $40 for it. PROS -Simple to use, there are no spoken audio announcements "power on, your battery is high" like in the LG Tone headphones but, who really needs that when you can view the headset's battery on your phone? -Volume, music forward, play, pause controls are handy. It's easy to summon Siri by holding the play button for a few seconds. -Good battery: it lasts for me at least a day -They stay put: I took them jogging without issue. -Decent sound. This set sounds better than a previous set I tested for $25.00. Note, these are NOT noise isolating so you can hear outside sounds well when music is paused or at low volume. CONS -Bad mic: Sometimes I have to switch the call audio to the phone after my listener says they can't hear me. -The 3 buttons on the side are difficult to locate without looking: I always have to count the buttons 1,2 to be able to feel the middle Play button. The pressing action on a button automatically presses the headphone against my ear because the buttons are not on the side. -When listening to Waze directions on iOS the headset is delayed in coming back up from sleep so "Turn right" is heard as "..rn right".

    After spending countless amounts of money at the local Five below on headphones (only because some of the better ones are outside of my budget at the moment), i decided to go ahead and spring for something a little better. I came across these headphones at one the the local Best Buy stores in my area and even better, they had them in pink!! I purchased these on 07/04/17 and although they were a little bulky on my ears, the sound clarity was great. I had no other complaints about this product. However, this past Friday I noticed i was only able to hear out of the left ear bud. I turned them off and turned them back on just to see if that would resolve the issue. NOPE! The cord was not tangled or anything but i just decided to run my fingers along it to see if that would help. Come to find out, there's a short in the cord coming from the right ear bud (where the play/power button is located. The only way I'm able to hear sound out of both ear buds is if I have my finger placed on the power or play button. So this is an inconvenience to me because I use these while driving and holding a button would not work. I placed a call out to the store where I purchased them on Saturday 09/18/17 and explained my situation to the representative, I know the purchase is recorded b/c I used my Best Buy Card. I was told it was nothing that can be done because I was not an Elite member, did not purchase the Geek Squad protection, and there was no extended warranty available through the manufacturer. So basically being totally satisfied with my purchase, reading all the reviews and this incident where best buy is telling I'm basically s**t out of luck of $30, no I would not recommend this product to a friend.

    I read a lot of reviews before I bought these and the most common complaint was they stopped working shortly after purchase so I immediately began using these to see if I needed to return them. I am happy to say I have had no issues and am very satisfied. Another complaint I saw was there were no instructions included well I found adequate instructions. Instructions were on a folded sheet of paper folded into the long end of the package, sort of easy to miss if you don't look there. Functions are basic, using the buttons on the right-earpiece which is easy to feel. The small size of the ear buds allows me to wear inside my motorcycle helmet but it became uncomfortable after a couple of hours, not surprising as that is not an intended use. The earbuds stayed in place, taking the time to position them, to mount them on my ears. These earbuds are not traditionally round, they are tube-shaped and I like the fit. Sound quality is very good. With my helmet I found the wind interfered so again I accept that is not a performance issue per se. They perform very well just wandering around the house or taking a walk. I have only used it to make a few calls in a quiet setting and had no problem. Listening to music inside my home I can go about 25 feet before losing the signal. It recharges quickly with the USB provided cable on a 2.1 input and a pocket/portable charger. I feel I gave it a good workout and performance is very good. I paid $19 and am considering buying another. I can recommend.

    Excellent Sound and Performance

    Crisp, clear and good range with sound. I was extremely grateful for the decision to buy these, and surprised at their performance. We have not experienced any audio/video sync issues. My daughter tested with a show on her iPhone 7 Plus and I tested using Roku, watching something through our cable providers app on iPad. Voice and picture were perfectly paired. I'm not sure how far it is from one end to the other of our home but I have tested range through walls (with 2 doors closed between two rooms) and one end of home where tv is to the other end. The sound has been marvelous, each of the two times tested it blipped out for a second or less - only one time. Once seated in your ear with whichever pair feels most comfortable to you, these earphones are not going to fall out. After a few seconds I forget they're even there, very comfortable and soft. The bass has not yet been an issue for us. We've not had to change settings on iPod/iPhone/iPad yet for deeper bass, but that's a great suggestion reviewer(s) made. I'm a huge bass fan but really haven't had a need, they sound very well balanced and enough bass out of the box. The only time we've had issues with it pairing is when we forget to disconnect it from one device before pairing with another. This is the only con I've found with these so far. Going to get another pair when go on sale again for daughter so we can quit sharing! :D

    I got tired of having my plugged in earbuds on my iPhone both hurt my ears because they were so rigid and also hit the end of the cord and cause my phone to jerk from where it was lying and fall crashing to the floor. I read about these wireless earbuds and the reviews were good. Most of my listening is for either talk radio or videos, so musical clarity is not something I care about too much. For my purposes, I could not be more pleased. I bought two sets - one for work and one for home. I'm glad I did. They charge fast and the battery lasts for most of my workday. The sound is excellent for my purpose. I can walk around the house or for a limited distance from the phone into the pasture and not miss a thing. The microphone clarity appears to be good as my friends have said so. The soft ear buds (not sure what else to call them) fit into my ears comfortably and I wear them for hours without even thinking about them. They do not fall out, nor are they uncomfortable. The price seemed good to me for something so far better than my iPhone earbuds were. A coworker tried them out and was going to go straight to buy a pair. I worried about losing them before I bought them, but that has not been an issue.
