    So first off, I'm very picky when it comes to my sound. I'm not audiophile (pro) but I love my sound. I bought these with the expectations of returning them. I was only curious to see how simple it was to connect, the sound, the fit, ect. I was disappointed in the fact that I actually LOVE these Things. Outta the box, place them in the charging case, remove connect, 10 seconds.... Place in your ear, (this will take you a min to find that sweet spot.) BOOM! At first they made a bit of a crackling sound and I was like "Done, they're going back... then it stopped and the bass dropped with ZERO distortion! good mids, and highs...Sold!!! Crying now because I have another pair of $100 headphones I REALLY don't need. But these are PERFECT for the gym. I can wear a hat with out having to mess around with the ear hook that my PowerBeats3 have. I can wear glasses and a hat without the same issue mentioned a second ago. They fit perfect, they don't move at all... The only change in sound is when your bent over, doing pull ups, doing anything that requires any sort of facial distortion. Otherwise PERFECT! I bought these JAMS at 8:16pm and it is now 12:02am and I have 70% battery life, Ive had them plugged in my head the entire time listening on high levels, low levels. So far so good. The box says 3 hours of listening time, 30 hours with the included charging case. The downside. It has the buttons on each side of the speakers. You will most definitely pause your music or hang up on your caller if you adjust them in your ear because of the placement of the only button that exists on these headphones. Having said that, the only function the button has is, Pause, Take a Call, End a Call, Siri (or google, or whatever the android phones have) and Power. No volume, no skip, no repeat. In my opinion, its a SMALL price to pay for the comfort, sound quality, and convenience of these guys. Again, I am very picky with my sound. But I am thoroughly impressed with these JAM Ultra. BUY IT!

    Amazing buds at a great price

    I have been in the market for "truly wireless" earbuds for quite a while now. I looked at some of the options but with the market so new, prices were upwards of $300 easy. I don't mind paying for quality but there wasn't a product out there that was time tested and if I was going to pay that much, I wanted to know it would last. I stumbled across the review of the IQ earbuds and was intrigued as an option to use them at work. Still at a cost of almost $300, I wasn't unsure if I wanted to make the investment. I noticed the Jam wireless earbuds in the "recommendations" BB was making and clicked on it. I was surprised to see a $100 pair of truly wireless earbuds on BB. I know there are many on Amazon but I'm sketchy of those this early in the game. Trust me, I have a pair of Taotronics earbuds I love that were extremely cheap. But again, this early, I want to stay away until the tech catches up. Enough about that, now onto the earbuds. Jam isn't exactly the premier speaker company so I was also skeptical if this would be any good. Because of the reviews and a youtube review I watched, I was sold on trying them. Especially because you can't beat them at this price. What sold me was 1) the price and 2) the case charges them additional 10x or something like that. Again... great for the price! I figured even if they don't sound good, I have a set of earbuds I could travel with and not need to charge up. Well.... I was wrong there. I charged them up, paired them to my phone, started spotify and selected the most bass heavy song I had on my playlist. It ramps up the sound so I kinda tilted my head sideways like.... huh.... them BAM. Bass, mids, lows... amazing. I was instantly impressed with the sound coming from these. Don't get me wrong, I'm no audiophile but I have used a range of headphones from extremely cheap to semi-expensive. I am pleased with this purchase and anyone in the market for some truly wireless buds should give these a shot. You won't be disappointed.

    I got these on sale for $79 which was reduced from the regular $99. I was surprised that these were as good as they are. I will say that they are a bit tricky initially to get used to. The fit was a bit of a problem initially but I read some other reviews then I replaced the rubber ear fitting with the second to smallest and voila, all of a sudden they would stay in my ears. The sound was a little muffled but the trick with these is to rotate them (turn up and down) as you insert and continue to adjust and the sound clears up. Some people have an issue with the range (about 20 ft with Bluetooth). I don’t really have an issue with this as I used these primarily at the gym. They stay snug and my bag stays close by so no worries. I know I’ve ventures further than 20-30 ft from my iPhone but still no issues. The sound is very good but quality is better with some of the more high end Bluetooth competitors. For me, I’m not looking for audiophile quality as I’m a gym rat and focused on my workout but I know bad sound and these aren’t bad at all. I replace IEMs often either due to loss, malfunction or other reasons. I usually don’t miss them if I need to replace them. I can honestly say I’d miss these as I’ve grown to like them so much. Remember, you can definitely find better but for me the price and performance are a sweet spot.

    Outstanding "Truely" Wireless Earbuds

    I purchased a set of Beats X earbuds and while I liked their sound quality, they were not loud enough for me. I returned them and picked up the new JAM Transit Ultras. Wow, I am really please with these little babies! Pros: No wires -- I can move freely about the gym. Fit -- They fit snugly and comfortably into each ear. I wear them for two hours at a time with no ear fatigue and now loss in seal. Range -- Bluetooth 4.1 with outstanding range, I can go down stairs in my two-story home with no signal loss (and they don't cut out when I wear them while mowing the lawn either). Battery Life -- I've managed to achieve around 3.5 hours of use on a single charge and their charging and carrying case works flawlessly providing around 7 additional 7 full earbud charges and doubles as a backup battery for mobile devices. Sound -- Impecable sound with deep bass, low frequency response (achieved with an airtight seal). Excellent high-frequency sound (I use an EQ app) and the mids and highs are clean an accurate. Volume -- They get loud enough when using my Gear S2 that allows me to enjoy my workout with clear sound. Cons: No track/song search or volume control; but I don't need it since I use a Samsung Gear S2 for workouts and control those settings from my phone or tablet when not working out. I am totally satisfied with this product. I've owned the Samsung Gear Icon X, but the touch sensitivity and battery life forced me to return them (but they really did have a truly clear and spatial sound.

    I have owned these earbuds for ~1 month. I was searching for a true wireless option to use for everyday use in the office, at home and in the gym. I compared various models including the AirPods and the various other earbuds on the market. I have to say the build quality is great and the sound quality is very good for me and my needs. The batteries have held up well and the charging case is well built and allows me to go for ~1 week or longer before charging the case. I was leery about how well they would stay in, but have not have them fall out once, I will say that over time, especially if you are eating/talking they start to feel loose. One quick touch to reposition and they are good to go. Taking phone calls works well, no background noise that others have picked up and sound quality is excellent. The ability to use one earpod, similar to many competitors, is a great feature while working, since when both earbuds are in they are very good at isolating external noise. I did purchase the warranty for $20 as a precaution since these are new to market. Warranty is not available on the AirPods through Best Buy. For comparison I have the Bluebuds X, Beats Solo Wireless, and various other corded earbuds. These by far are my goto for quick and easy to use listening device.

    Just as good as the more expensive alternative.

    I've had these a couple of months and I'm very happy with them. Excellent sound quality and functionality at a cheaper price than the big name brands. The earbuds fit snug in my ear and don't fall out. It has the initial feeling of if you were to stick your finger in your ear to drown out sound, so it feels a little weird... until you start playing the music. At that point it's like wearing an earplug with a speaker. I love to use just one and keep my other ear open so that I am aware of my surroundings. However, wearing both ears together is twice as awesome! The buds sit deep in the ear canal so high volume is not necessary. I've barely turned my device past 3 or 4 notches on the volume. I love that you charge the case, then the case charges the earbuds, and it can also be used for an emergency phone battery. The earbuds fit magnetically in the case, which is cool. I have had some issue with them randomly beginning to charge in the case, which makes me think there's a somewhat loose fit in the charging case, but no worries... not really an issue. 5 stars anyway.

    Not bad

    For the price, these aren't bad BT buds. Sound was pretty good actually. Don't expect 7.1, it's BT and ear buds, not high $$ IEM'S. They didn't fall out of my ears, but do have a tendency to loosen up say if you're eating or chewing gum with them in. That is due to the tips. Get some good foam tips and you're set. The tips are also going to effect the sound. You need a good tight fit to achieve good bass tones. Get the right fit, then get ready for some discomfort until you break them in. The silicone tips they supply are going to hurt your ears after a bit, but they will also hurt them every time you use them. While foam tips are uncomfortable at first, they eventually mold to your ear canal and loosen up, the silicone doesn't so easy. So invest in some good foam tips. Comply is a good company that makes these.. Battery time was excellent with these. When I put in ear buds, believe me, they are staying in for quite a while. And these did. I easily obtained ~4 hours (sometimes more) jam time with these. Btw, I like my hearing, so I don't jam high volume. Not only does it save my hearing, but also battery life. Final thoughts: These impressed me. The price is great for what they do. I would buy again definitely. No issues at all with them.

    I truly love these ear buds. I've been using them at work and during workouts, and so far, so good. Before settling on these I tried other ear buds, but they had serious connectivity issues. I haven't found any with these so far. I work in an auto parts store, so I mainly use them in mono mode while working. I decided to try out the distance on these: I walked around the entire store, which is fairly big, didn't lose signal once. In fact, the only time I lost signal is when I was taking some stuff out of the back door, which is quite far away. But the moment I came back into the store, to my surprise, the music started right back up in the place it had left off. They pair quite easily, the charging case is fantastic, and it acts an emergency battery charger for your phone, as well. They're comfortable, they sound quality is on par, and they cut out quite a bit of noise once inserted. You have to use your phone to control volume and next track and such, but that's a minor inconvenience for the size and price of these. I would definitely reccommend these. In fact, I have.

    Good wireless ear buds with a portable charger

    I wasn't sure about getting completely wireless earbuds, but when I saw these came with a case that could charge my phone, I decided to give it a try. The sound is respectable, with good mid range and surprisingly good bass. It works best if you're able to get a good seal in your ear, which isn't so easy but is doable. The lack of controls on the buds is difficult, but if your paired device is nearby, it isn't a deal breaker. The single button on each bud serves as an on/off/answer/activate voice recognition. It's not a clear cut system and I've disconnected one bud while trying to activate voice recognition. They last a good long time, charging in their carry case. One drawback to the charging case is when the case is out of juice, the earbuds will try to connect until they run out of charge themselves, or the charger is recharged. I've never charged my phone to capacity off the charger, but I've gained a few percentage points quickly with it. Good sounding earbuds in a portable chase that charges the buds and other devices. Not a bad deal at all

    I've had these for about 2 months and I love these in ear bud type headphones. I am very happy about the sound balance. I tend to listen to my music a little bass heavy and this delivers. The sound balance suits my taste. A little too much treble or highs give me a headache - this is just perfect. The highs sounded a little spitty in the beginning but after you break it in it softens a bit. Quite small and afraid I might lose it - but the ear fit is really solid (3 sizes included) I run with it and jump and it stays on. I wish the left or right earpiece was colored to distinguish easily - the print L and R is too dark and small to read. I love the minimalist design of the buds - It is aesthetically and less pretentious than the Apple design with that long white stem hanging down your ear. Charge only last 3 hours - good enough for me because my work out time is max 2 1/2 (cardio+weights+cooldown). The base charger can also be used as a backup charger for cel phones (max base charge is 30 hours). I've had Platnronics - Jaybird - so far, Blue Ant Pump and Jam are my favorite for sound, fit and comfort.

    The Best True Wireless Earphones I have tried.

    I have tried many many different True Wireless earphones and these are the best by far. I have used these for 2 days now and I have not had one single desync issue with them. There have been no audio skips whatsoever. On top of that, the headphones sound phenomenal for True Wireless earphones. They do not have a neutral sound but seem to be V shaped. There is the most emphasis on the bass, but the mids and highs have really great quality. They are definitely a very "fun" headphone sound wise. I have been searching for months for a good True Wireless earbuds and I have finally found them in these great earbuds. If you want some of the best True Wireless earbuds for sound quality and connectivity then, buy these. This is one of the first reviews I have ever written and this is not a paid review. I honestly have no idea how these earbuds are not more mainstream. If you want great Truly Wireless Earbuds at any price buy these now!

    Just purchased these yesterday on sale for $75 and I couldn't be happier. The sound is wonderful, the battery life for true wireless is great (about 4 hours), and the 10+ recharges with the case make this a cant beat. Now do they sound like Bose or Klipsch headphones, no, but they sound better than any of the sub $50 headphones you can find on amazon. Additionally, my biggest fear was that these might fall out, that hasn't happened, minus the one time i bumped my ear hard washing the car, had nothing to do with working out or natural movement. Will admit that they don't sync well with video, about a 1/4 second delay which overtime will be annoying, but i find almost all Bluetooth headphones have some sort of minuscule delay even ones that say they don't, but at $75 I cannot complain. If you are in the market for true wireless headphones and don't want to spend more than $100, these will suit your needs and you will be very happy with them.

    I purchased these at a price matched total of 74.95. At this price they are less than half the price of the Apple Airpods. As long as you have realistic expectations of the pro/cons of this setup, you will love these. Fitment is good, they are not over sized, and they sound great. These are bass heavy, so they make great gym buds, or if you are a bass head. There is only one button on either bud. This acts as the power, play/pause, and siri/assistant activation. You will need to use your phone for volume and song manipulation. (Pretty standard for most devices in this category) The included charging case is awesome, as you can also charge your phone with it. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this purchase. Great affordable alternative to some of the other sets out there. 5 stars for the price and performance of this for me.

    Best Value/Absolute Steal

    Posted
    Nico

    I was a bit hesitant on buying these because I wasn't too familiar with the brand, the earphones are priced decently lower than most of its competition on the market and I thought maybe the reviews were from those that had lower expectations with the product because of the price. I can honestly say these have to be one of the best, if not the best value for your buck available. They have an extremely comfortable fit and you won't have problems with them constantly falling out. Most importantly, they paired insanely easily to my MacBook and iPhone have incredible sound quality and noise reduction (at barely of a quarter of the volume up for that matter). You'd be crazy to go with other name brands such as Apple or Bose and paying $150+, not worth it compared to these.

    When i first saw these headphones in best buy i was skeptical because of the brand, but when i saw the reviews i figured i would give them a try and i am so happy i did. I was looking for a pair of completely wireless headphones and i wanted the Airpods, but because of my ear size they didn't fit. I was going to get the ICON X from Samsung, but after looking at the reviews i was a little concerned. I saw these hanging and look at the reviews. Bought them and i was completely blown away. Jam is bringing there name back! They are worth a try, they can be returned if your not satisfied, but i promise you you will be!

    I love these buds! I got these for $80 on Black Friday and I must say they're awesome! Even if I would have gotten them for the $100 original price, they're worth every penny. I was skeptical since I have bought different ones in the past like the Samsung Icon X,(first edition), and didn't like them. They were difficult to pair and the sound quality was like a pair of $20 buds. I have the Bose freestyle, Sony extra bass, Taotronics wireless, Powerbeats 2, and Bose Soundsport. I would compare the sound quality between the Powerbeats and Sony extra bass. They're no Bose, but they're also not cheap. If you want $250 sound quality, then go spend $250 on Bose, lol. If you want extra features that you might or might not use, get the Icon x for $200. If you want something simple, good quality, and won't break the bank, get these.

    Ok lets check the boxes. Does it look good? check does it provide good sound? check does it provide a carrying case? check do they feel good and secure in the ear? check that's about all you can ask for, for just a $100 bucks these days in the audio community If there is one draw back to these ear buds it is the battery life. on a full charge they only last about 3 hours tops, but the case they go in is also their portable charger which can recharge the earbuds quickly more than 10 hours so that you will only have about 15 minutes of downtime for charging before you have another hour or two of listening time. they may not be the best but they are definitely worth the $100 I cannot stress that enough.

    I cannot believe how great they sound! I'm so glad I came across these. They worked right out of the box with no effort in pairing. The bass is awesome at every level. Battery life is great and the fact that the charger can also charge your phone is a super plus! I use my smart watch control things like forward/rewind/start/stop so I never have to touch the earbuds once they are in. I've gone through tons of headphones and earbuds and I have to say that this is the best sound experience like...EVER! You'd better get them now because I predict they will be sold out everywhere once the public gets wind of the Jam earbuds! Jam Audio deserves every audio sound award possible for this product. Simply Amazing!

    I was originally looking at the Bose wireless earbuds that cost $250, I read reviews and watched videos on both those headphones and these ones. These are all around better headphones. They turn off when put into the charger, they turn on and pair when taken out of the charger. Took a day or 2 to get used to, but they are really nice headphones with a lot of bass, clear bass, not distorted bass. If I had 1 complaint to make, it would be that they aren't super loud, not loud enough to make my hearing go dull for a couple of minutes. They are loud enough for daily use though, I use mine at the store, school, working out. They work amazingly, I do not regret the purchase in the slightest.

    I was looking for some earbuds that are truly wireless. Went into the store and tried 2 other brands before I ended up choosing these and have now decided to keep them. The audio is very clear and the bass is nice and deep which is really amazing actually... Not sure how they did it. I am using these while cycling and at time it can be very windy. They play "loud and clear" no problem at all. Both the stereo and the mono modes are terrific! Have not used for more than 3 hours at a time yet but the battery seems to hold up great! Very surprised at the quality but would DEFINITELY recommend to anyone looking for a pair of awesome and true wireless earbuds!!
