    Where to begin? First of all, I need to be fair and admit that I probably qualify as an earbud collector. I acquired and accumulated at least a half-dozen sets of high-end wired headsets over the years, which I retired with the advent and availability of the wireless Bluetooth versions. I got my first wireless earbuds nearly a decade ago, and have continued to update my collection with newer models from different manufacturers, as they've become available. I've even got a couple pair of the type that the right and left ear buds are untethered / independent of one another. They seemed like a great idea, but after having one fall out of my ear and into a storm drain, they lost their appeal. I recently added the these earbuds to my collection, and they are hands down my favorites so far. The fit is excellent, not to mention incredibly comfortable, the sound quality is awesome, not to mention the customization capabilities, and the 12 hour battery life brings peace of mind to my rather OCD fear of needing to recharge at any given moment. Yup, these are my new faves, and I think a second pair is in order, just to keep in my gym bag.

    nice sound for bluetooth earbuds

    Setup: Bluetooth setup with Android phone was easy. There was no app to install. The unit came fully charged (instant gratification for those who need it). Accessories: The earbuds came with a short USB charging cable, a nice (if somewhat small) zippered case, a shirt clip, and variety of tips and "CUSH-FIN"s to customize the fit. Design: The over-the-ear design is a bit awkward and took some getting used to. I suggest adjusting each ear piece separately (without glasses if you wear them). Once you have a good fit, care is needed to keep the "memory wire" from finding a new shape when taking the earbuds on and off and when operating the remote. The unobstructed Bluetooth range is over 30 feet. The connecting cable is flexible but prone to microphonics when worn behind the neck. It is also short, making it impossible to see the light on the remote during operation without a mirror. The cable holder allows you to make the cord even shorter and attach the shirt clip. With the cord at its longest, the clip just does reach the collar of my t-shirt. A good seal is essential to getting the best possible sound quality. Be sure to select a tip that works for you. Unlike other JLAB models, there is only one ring on the barrel of each earpiece allowing for fewer options when trying to get an effective seal. In-line microphone & remote control: From what friends and colleagues tell me, the microphone works very well despite its position just below the right ear. The wireless design means that you are not tethered to a phone or computer. The in-line remote control works with Android music apps (e.g. Neutron). The center button is play/pause (short press). The up/down buttons work for volume (short press) and forward/back track selection (long press). The remote worked well for me on phone calls. A short press on the center button answers an incoming call and disconnects current calls. Battery: The downfall of any small Bluetooth device, battery life. The battery came "fully" charged. Voice messages at startup let you know the battery status, "Battery Full" (100% - 75%, "Battery Medium" (75% - 25%), and "Battery Low" (less than 25%). Charging from fully drained (using USB3 port on my computer) took about 1.5 hours. I lost a full charge when accidentally leaving them on overnight. If you remember to turn them off when not in use, you can get the advertised 12 hours of Bluetooth audio. Sound Quality: There are three equalization settings, "Signature" (bass and treble boost), "Balanced" (flat), and "Bass Boost" (. do I need to say it? ;-). A short, simultaneous press on the up and down volume buttons on the remote cycles through them in order. "Signature" was the out-of-the-box default. The effects are modest, but audible. The "Bass Boost" profile is muddy and not at all to my liking. I prefer the flat profile and equalize at the source, but my review is based on the "Signature" setting as this was the default. These are not audiophile quality in-ear-monitors (IEMs), but are very good for the price. The sound signature depends on the equalization setting chosen. For the default "Signature" equalization setting bass and treble are enhanced at the expense of the mids, but the added treble is not fatiguing for long listening sessions and quite nice, particularly with female vocals. They are a bit muddy on the low end and tinny on the high end compared with my wired, $400 IEMs. Overall: If you like the over-the-ear design and can find a tip that seals well, these earbuds are a good choice for active use. The built-in equalization settings are limited, but function well if you don't want to fiddle with equalizing on your Bluetooth source. For the price they are a very good on-the-go, Bluetooth performer with all genres tested (rock, jazz, classical, & pop).
