    Great Sound, but that's about it

    I picked this headphones from an end-cap display at Bestbuy one Sunday morning. I trusted the JBL brand before and these were going to be the most I've ever spent on a bluetooth headset. The Pros: For music this headset is pretty good. Loud enough, not too bassy, not too tinny. The sound quality is adequate for this price point. Good when it comes to music, No lag, when playing Netflix. The Cons: The sound is the only redeeming quality that these headphones have. The controls are not intuitive and hard to press. The cable I knew wasn't retractable when I purchased it, but the material scrapes against my shirts, collar or no collar. When it scrapes the shirt, the sound travels to the ear, and it's jarring. The neckband doesn't stay put. I've had several around-the-neck headphones, and never had this problem before. Under my shirt, under my collar, over my collar. The neckband won't stay in place. I end up adjusting the neckband many times throughout the day, and that's just when I notice. Most of the time it's just askew around my neck and I look unkempt. Several times I've been startled, because the headset will travel down my back. I thought I would solve this by keeping it in my shirt, but then it just slides down my front. Because of these design issues, I will not be recommending this headset to anyone.

    I love them!

    These headphones come in very nice packaging and come with a charger cord (only about 6 inches long), a lot of documentation, and 2 extra sets of ear cups that are different sizes. These headphones are made out of aluminium and the earbuds are magnetic so they stick to each other when not in use, the magnet could be a little bit stronger but they will stick as long as they don't get caught up on something. The battery life is amazing and I easily get the advertised 10 hours of use on them and charging only takes about 2 hours. They connect to your device insanely quickly and within 10 seconds you are ready to jam out! The sound quality is nice, a nice mix of highs, mids, and they have a good amount of bass, keep in mind these are earbuds so your head will not be rattling with bass but when listing to music the bass is definitely present. The cable for the earbuds is braided and they feel premium, same with the whole device. They headphones are very lightweight so they don't weigh you down. Overall these headphones are an amazing deal for the money. Highly recommended!!!

    Good sound. Bad Design.

    My first impression was that these headphones were fantastic for the price. After 2 days of use, and constantly having to grab them from behind my back, I'm ready to return them and try something else. The material is slick and they are so light that just turning your head a few times causes them to turn enough to fall off your neck, leaving them dangling in between your shoulder blades, and looking like a crazy person trying to retrieve them. This is really a shame because the sound is good and the battery life is great. Ever since LG quality went down hill, it has been impossible to find good quality wireless headphones that don't break the bank.

    I have always been a fan of JBL products. I own multiple Bluetooth products of theirs, including this one. I bought this one specifically because the design (which I prefer vs any other design) and it was JBL. Most the negative reviews are regarding the design so keep that in mind. These stay on my neck very well, sound is good, charge is great, easy to use. The only reason I am giving a 4 star is because I was not very impressed (but still satisfied) with the overall sound for the price of these headphones. Other brands I have had have same sound quality for less price.

    I had these headphones for a couple of months before I was force to return them. The headphones are to small and very light and that is the main problem that I have with them. They tend to spin around my neck when normal activities. While driving they tend to fall behind due to them being so light. I expected a better quality sound from the 200BT but they are the cheap models so I got what I paid for. Unless you're a very short in height, Avoid getting these.

    These wireless earbuds are very comfortable. You hardly feel the neckband and it is of high quality material. Very pleased with how the earbuds feel, they seem durable and I have worn for a couple of hours with no discomfort. The sound right out of the box is rather weak and not that good. Tinny. HOWEVER if your device you it paired with has an EQ it livens it up a lot with good bass and clarity in highs and mids. So be patient and don't return upon 1st listen.

    I had purchased this our JBL Live 200 In-Ear Bluetooth Headphones - Black a mouth ago and I’d like to let you know I’m split in the middle, I’m happy with the design, Battell life is great and the sound quality is good; .... but only out of the right side. I find that the left early bud is not equal level with the right. It’s quieter and not as crisp. Almost to the point were I hear minimal difference having the left earbud in your just dangling

    I bought this headset to replace an aging LG Tone. So far the sound for music and phone use is quite comparable to the LG. The headset is light and more comfortable to wear and he battery will last all day and then some(I use my phone a lot during the day). The only con I have is the button placement. I find that the headset will begin to play after I lift my arms while working overhead and I usually don’t notice until they have been playing for a few minutes.

    Nice ear buds but not for activity

    I got these for my birthday and they hooked right up to my iPhone very good sound but once I started working outside mind you with my phone on me the music would break or cut out and the ear bud right side would fall out. I have small ears and the smallest tip was on due to comfort I returned to the store. Don’t get me wrong if you want a good sounding bud they might be good for the Office I’m gonna stick with the over ears I think.

    The phones have excellent sound. Volume control is easy to adjust. The earpieces are magnetic and hold together quite nicely when not in use. The earphones are thoughtfully designed. I tried separate earphones with Apple, but, alas, lost one piece when I had to listen to someone. Very frustrating. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a practical ear set without worrying about losing one earpiece.

    These have great sound on all range of music genres. Excellent battery life. I can listen to music all day while at my handyman business and most of the next day without a recharge. Only reason for the 4 stars is because the neck band moves on me when I'm working and I have to constantly readjust. Overall excellent wireless earbuds.

    These are great headphones. The sound quality is very good, the voice quality is very good. I find the only problem with these and many other these days is there not retractable. They want to fly off your neck if your not careful because they are so light. If you take this into account, the sound quality outweighs the downfalls.

    This is not the best headset I've ever used! The volume could be louder. As far as I can tell, the only way to control the volume is on your cellphone. It would stay in my ear better the last headset I purchased. Even after I changed the size of the ear piece it would still come out!

    These were purchased for my wife so she could enjoy listening to her podcasts and music while gardening and not have to deal with a wired connection to her I-Phone. A good selection that allows her to do what she loves without the fear of losing an individual earbud while being active.

    They’re okay. Heavy bass gets distorted, high treble gets distorted. Flimsy band is cool sometimes but can be a bother. I ride a motorcycle and they are adequate but not entirely. I’d recommend if they were maybe 20 bucks cheaper. I’m returning them tomorrow to get a better pair.

    My children gave me the earbuds for my birthday in 2018. Having used them now for several months, I love them! They are easy to use, have great sound. When I am working in the yard, my hearing protection (ear muffs) fits over the earbud very comfortably.

    Purchased these and they sound great. They are a little bit on the quieter side , they don't get as loud when you wanna get into your workout when a good sound hits . Quality is good I like the reinforced wire . The fit well in my ears which are a little bigger than normal.

    I love these headphones! I was not sure how I would feel about the band but after a couple of try’s it was barely noticeable. I love the sound quality jbl gives off better then beats in my book and a much better price. Would recommend JBL over beats

    I bought these for my 10 year old son. He wanted wireless buds, but I was afraid he would lose them. Now he goes everywhere with them around his neck. I don’t have to ask where they are because they are always visible. He said they are comfortable too
