    Good audio quality in an awkward package

    I want to like this earbuds more than I do, and at the same time, they aren't bad enough where I can't say I would not recommend them. They are somewhere in the "your mileage may vary" category for me, and I hate that because it's like a cavern of indecisiveness. What, then, led me to this conclusion? First, I'll touch on what I like about them. Upon first opening the box, they appear to be a decently complete and capable kit. It doesn't include a case, which would have been a nice add, but otherwise it's pretty complete. The box has a setup guide that helps you quickly get connected and fitted with them. You can use any mix and match of the 5 different pairs of ear tips to help fit the various sized ears everyone has. A pair of foam tips is included, as is a pair of double-height narrow tips to fit deeper in the ear. Additionally, the JLabs Cush-Fins are supposed to help the body of the earbud fit more comfortably in the ear. Keeping with fitment, the wire at the earbud that fits to your ear is flexible which allows you to bend it to a position that secures the earbuds to your ear and head while keeping it comfortable, to your liking. A cable clip is included already on the wire, and an apparel clip is included in the bag so you can clip them to the collar of your shirt behind your neck; it snaps onto the cable clip fairly easily. On the wire is the control box that consists of 2 arrow buttons, the middle multi-function button, and the micro USB charging port. The buttons feel good when you press them, the USB port had a solid connection to the included charging cable, and the cover for the USB port was easy to open and close. Once I got them fitted to my head, they paired up really easily following the instructions. Pairing mode is indicated with a voice prompt, as is the battery level, and it was very clear and easy to understand. Out of the box the battery was "high" but I charged them fully before testing them out. Once charged and paired, I tested the battery life since the package claims 6+ hours of playtime. With them connected to my computer, I started a streaming radio station with the volume at a comfortable level and left them sitting. I started at 10:05am, and they ran until 4:47pm, with Low Battery beeps starting 10 minutes before they died. I was impressed by the 6hr 42m runtime. Before the runtime test I played 3 different rock, country, and R&B songs through them to test the sound quality and the built-in equalizer modes, and they sounded very good. The preset JLab Signature mode was the most balanced for good lows and highs. The Balanced setting fell a bit flat, and the Bass Boost was too muffled and "bassy". Even during the runtime test with the streaming radio station the audio quality was above average. With all this, there are still some shortcomings that bothered me with this kit, putting me in the wishy-washy window. For starters, with all the ways to make them fit your comfort level, they take too much work to get comfortable each time I put them on. The wire around your ear has to be re-bent each time because it adjusts when you remove them, and the fitment process for this is annoying due to the shape of the body and the angle of the earbud tip. Once they are in they start to get comfortable, but it's a bit of a pain each time. Additionally, the Cush-Fins are either hit or miss. On one ear they helped with comfort, and on the other ear I could never get it settled just right. The earbud on my left ear would vanish when I got it situated, but my right ear always had a comfort issue no matter how I adjusted or what tip I used. Leading to comfort issues is one of my biggest complaints with them: the control box. It's heavy. Awkwardly so. I have a bunch of other earbuds with a similar design, and for most of them I forget the controls are there, for better or worse. The downside on those is the buttons aren't as prominent, but with this set, it's the reverse. They are so prominent and heavy that, when moving around actively, or even casually, the box swings, and bangs, or pulls the earbuds on my right ear to where it annoys me when using them. The apparel clip helps, but it doesn't solve the issue. If the clip were used closer to the controls it might help more, but then either the box is behind your neck, or the clip is near your ear pulling oddly. The final minor issue is the equalizer setting and when it activates after connecting them to a source. There is a noticeable delay when you connect the earbuds and start playback before the equalizer setting takes effect. At first I thought the audio through the computer was messed up, as it sounded super flat and without volume. Then, what seemed like a full minute later, the sound quality just jumped and mids and highs were distinguishable. I tried it through a couple phones as well to confirm the behavior. It's a minor quibble compared to the comfort issues, but one worth pointing out. I also didn't have a chance to test the sweatproof rating, as I normally wear my earbuds when working out in the yard, or on bike rides, and the temps are too cold currently that I am not working up that sweat to put them through the paces. Overall, as mentioned, I want to like these more than I do because the sound quality is really good for the cost. I will still use them here and there, but they will not be my primary set, because I can't get past the fitment in my right ear, the comfort of the control box, or the process of fitting them each time. But this is where the YMMV part comes in because these issues of mine might not be yours. Your ears are different, and the controls might not concern you like they do me. Because of that, with the audio quality, solid battery life, and various fitment options, they are still worthy of testing out.

    Lightweight & workout-ready with mid-tier sound

    PROs: - Though not quite as extensive as some higher-priced variants, you still get an impressive array of tip customizations with 3 sizes of gel tips, a pair of Comply-style foam tips, and removable cushion fins to dial in the fit to best suit your anatomy - Seriously light as a feather--with the weight borne by the ears via the memory wire ear-hooks, the entire assembly feels like you're wearing virtually nothing on the head - Cable slider at the back helps tidy up the excess cord between the ear pieces to allow a fit across the back of the head as tight or as loose as you need - 3 EQ settings to pick from; the JLab Signature profile (essentially V-shaped) is the most pleasing of the bunch with a generally weighty low end and slightly bumped highs - Quick and painless Bluetooth paring...I experienced no skips or dropouts during playback and they re-paired quickly to my phone or Nano at the start of each new workout - Remained in place and operational during variable workouts (elliptical, running, weights) and post-workout shower with little movement out of the ear canal once seated properly - Inline "control capsule" was big enough to make the three buttons fairly easy to find when in motion and I appreciated the ability to exercise so much control without having to resort to multiple combinations of quick and long presses of a single button for things like answering calls, activating Siri, or changing tracks - The memory wire hooks actually held their shape well during a workout; I thought they'd be sharp or uncomfortable but they actually work very well for what they do CONs: - Honestly, the sound was just okay--the JLab Signature sound EQ setting was definitely listenable with just a mild hint of recessed highs but very pleasant mids and bass; the Balanced sound profile (ostensibly "flat") felt hollow with deeply recessed highs but still reasonable bass; the Bass Boost EQ setting was just WAY too over the top on the bass to the point of being intrusive, not just boosted - Despite the cord slider to tie up the slack, I still felt the remaining "pony tail" of looped cord between the buds flopping up and down behind my head when I ran; some cable clips would have been welcome for an even more secure and less distracting fit - Okay, so the whole setup is truly light as a feather, but that control capsule is SO large that it feels out of place somehow on the otherwise unsubstantial headphone wire which I was always afraid wouldn't stand up to much repeated use given how thin it is - The manual talks about downloading the JLab app--don't bother; it's not an EQ or settings manager for the earbuds, it's simply a JLabs shopping app/website wrapper with some FAQs about pairing/troubleshooting thrown in for good measure...the supposed "burn-in" sound file isn't even available in the app (it plays in a browser or via SoundCloud) AND you have to submit your e-mail address to get it (more SPAM...swell!) - The design of the memory wire hooks kept the buds in place for all but the most demanding movement/exertion; at that point, the buds starting drifting out of my ear canal just a bit--not enough that they were ever at risk of falling out (the hooks really DO a good job of keeping the buds mostly stationary), but it's worth noting that the SQ is likely going to change just a bit the longer your workout runs simply due to the reduced seal in the ear canal as you sweat and move around Summary review: I have a lot of earbuds on the shelf and have gone through a lot of buds over the years as well...these certainly don't rank as the best I've ever used, but they aren't the worst either...for the money, they provide serviceable SQ and largely do all that I expected them to as Bluetooth buds should. The memory wire hooks turned out to be far more comfortable in use than I would have thought they every would be. I've traditionally shied away from over-the-ear-hooks precisely for comfort issues--usually the hooks are way too thick, hard, or big, or small--but this is the one case where they actually felt good, allowed a precise fit tailored to my anatomy, and actually did what they were supposed to--they kept me from losing my buds during particularly strenuous exercise. Sound quality was simply okay--perfectly fine for a workout and they'll play loud enough to cause hearing damage if that's what you're after, but I would personally not use these buds as everyday listeners, especially when I was seriously interested in playback quality. It's been my experience that JLabs simply tends to make decent products at decent prices and these turned out to be no exception. I do have some concerns about longevity given how thin the wires are running between the buds/inline controls, and though it doesn't weigh anything, the inline remote just feels a little too big and out of place on an otherwise thin and diminutive wire. But the nice part is that if I lose these, or they break or go out in a year or two, I wouldn't be out the money otherwise invested in a serious pair of wireless buds. Not necessarily my speed as I tend to favor something that dishes up better sound quality overall (even if I have to pay more to get it), but as a gym-bag set of earbuds or something you won't lose sleep over giving to one of the kids, these do a good job for the money.

    Hits sweet spot for great sound and affordability

    The JLAB Fit Sport 3 wireless earbuds are an outstanding value for the money. Not only do they sound much better than the wired earbuds that come with a tablet or smart phone, but they also sound as good as some other earbuds that cost much more. --DESIGN— The build quality and feature set are far above what is to be expected at this price point. It is obvious that a lot of effort was put into designing them to be very lightweight and comfortable to wear. The numerous included gel ear tips feel great and make all the difference in terms of fit and comfort. The flexible wire allowed me to shape the ear hooks, so they perfectly wrap around my ears. Once they were shaped I never felt as if they would fall off and they will keep their shape until they are changed. Another nice feature is that they are IP55 water resistant, which is important if you want to use it outside or anywhere that they can get wet. Using a micro USB cable, they take about 1 hour to charge and last about 6 hours. --SOUND QUALITY— The sound quality of these earbuds is exceptional and comparable to other more expensive headsets. They really sound that good! Included is an adjustable EQ which is unheard of at this price point. Being able to adjust the EQ based on what you are listening too makes a big difference regarding audio quality. The three EQ options are Signature, Balanced, and Bass Boost. After several hours of listening, I found the sound to be pleasingly full range and accurate. In fact, this headset rivals other more expensive headsets that I have used. --VERDICT— These JLAB earbuds are easy to use, sound great, and are comfortable to wear. I recommend them if you are in the market for earbuds that hit the midrange sweet spot between great sound and affordability. --OTHER INFO— IP55 water resistance rating Bluetooth version 5 Micro USB input

    I have tried quite a few pairs of earbuds and they just never seem to work for me. The sound is never very good and they never seem to want to stay in place. So when I saw that these ones came with hooks to go over your ears I was encouraged but not very optimistic. When I first tried these headphones on I didn't think they fit very well. But after trying a few of the different ear pieces and tried with and without the ear cushions. After the 3rd or 4th try I found that the smallest set of ear pieces and without the cushions worked the best for me. Once you get the ear pieces really shoved into your ear canal and get a good seal on the headphones you can get a surprising amount of bass from these. The sound is quite good. Of course it isn't as good as a set of on or over the ear headphones with 40mm drivers but they do sound nice. You can customize the sound somewhat with 3 pre-programmed EQ settings that you can try out by pressing the up and down volume arrows to switch between them. I would prefer an app that would allow you greater control over the sound but the 3 selections are pretty good. After trying them out at the gym I found that although they don't always stay tucked into your ears as much as you would like they do stay in place pretty well. You can bend the wires to mold the headphones to your ears a bit and this helps to hold them in place. Once I had them fitted I didn't really need to mess with them at all. And that is exactly what I want from a pair of gym headphones. I don't like having to constantly fiddle with my headphones. Some of the drawbacks to these headphones are that to get the best sound you need to get a good seal in your ears. However this can be hard to maintain as moving around and chewing gum while working out, (as I do), can cause the ear pieces to come out of your ears a bit. Also you can hear yourself breathing or even your heartbeat if you are training very hard. But this is a drawback to ANY ear bud type of headphones and not specific to the Jlab's. The bottom line on these headphones is that they fit well, stay in place and sound pretty good. This is the first set of earbuds that I have come across that I can live with.

    Great Fitting and Audio Sound from an In-Ear Bud

    I pretty much have only used over-the-ear or on-the-ear headphones in the past. But they get heavy or their sound is changed by where you position them. I have also tried on some in-ear buds that would only stay on occasionally. The JLab Audio Fit Sport Fitness Earbuds Wireless In-Ear Headphones I received are different, in a good way. They go in the ear but wrap around the outer part of the ear next to the skull. This provides a more solid fit in the ear and keeps the in-ear buds in place. This is a very nice feature and should fix problems that runners/gym activists find annoying. Now it was a little difficult to put place the in-ear buds comfortably. I was simply was not used to the contour of the ear bud behind the ears. I found that it was difficult at first, but became easier and easier when trying the JLab in-ear buds on. I found them quite comfortable after getting used to them. The package also included different size cones that fit in the ear attached to the ear bud. This is great customization so you can get the correct size. Charging up the JLab in-ear buds was extremely simple. Provided in the package was a mini-USB to USB connection from the power station so the JLabs in-ear buds to charge. It only took about 20 mins for me to have the in-ear buds to reach full energy. The power block has tracks forward/back and volume up/down including a round Bluetooth button. Now it was time to hook my smartphone with the JLabs in-ear buds. From the power block I held down the round button for Bluetooth pairing to my smartphone. When it flashes blue/red you know it is time to pair with the smartphone’s Bluetooth. I turned on the Bluetooth for the smartphone and it quickly paired with the JLabs in-ear buds. I keep music on my phone all the times, so no prep work was needed. Next I put the in-ear buds on and adjusted the volume with the smartphone. You can also change the volume from the power block, I had no trouble with this at all. I set the smartphone down at the front of the gym and walked all the way into the locker room (Bluetooth connected). The sound never cut off and it is great to know it has extended range (more than 40 ft) with the Bluetooth on. The final test was on the treadmill. I put the JLabs in-ear buds on and had the music going from the Bluetooth setting on my smartphone. Then I started out walking. I moved from walking to a slight jog. After about 30 mins my sweat did not hurt the JLabs in-ear buds whatsoever. I was also pleased with the sound quality. I know there are ear buds that may sound better for audiophiles, but I am on a treadmill. I am concentrating on the treadmill and the music sounded fine. And the JLabs in-ear buds didn’t budge or move around. It was a solid fit for my ears. To make sure the JLabs in-ear buds stayed in well, I did several different high energy excercises. No problems! There is also an app from JLabs that let you use an EQ to get the best sound you prefer (bass boost, balanced and signature). It is nice to have that kind of control over what you listen to. All around I would say I am very pleased with the JLabs in-ear buds. They have the fit, water/sweat proof and audio that should keep you happy in the gym or outside activities.

    Inexpensive wireless enjoyment

    Great value wireless fitness headphones with a couple of options for ear tips. These include the standard small/medium/large gel tips, a double flange gel tip and my favorite style, the cloud foam. These are great for sound isolation and comfort. There are also a pair of fins that can be removed to help with some additional comfort and fit. With the memory wire and shirt cable clip you can make it fit to you. In my case, I found it convenient to run under my beard in front of my head. A little bit easier to access the controls and microphone at that point. Some other decent features include IP55 rated resistance, which they claim as “Everything-proof” on the packaging. Rinsing them off didn’t seem to have any impact on them. There is also a 30 day satisfaction guarantee and a 2 year warranty. Battery life tends to last 6 hours on the dot with continuous audio. The sound quality is pretty good, I couldn’t tell a different between these and their high priced Epic Sport model. While pushing both the volume + and – you can step through their three EQ sounds depending on your listening style. There are a few things that separate these from higher priced headphones. The control module is a bit larger than some and in some activities can be irritating, but not too bad. Though the sound quality is good, the microphone sounded muffled. Even with closer placement to the mouth, since it hangs well behind the ear, it didn’t make a difference. However, it was clear enough to handle conversations. Battery life, though good for an average workout, won't last you all day of continuous usage. These are absolutely worth it though and perfect for an inexpensive gift.

    Another winner from JLab

    Disclaimer - I received this product in exchange for my fair and unbiased review. JLab makes some good audio products for the price. They've always had well-rounded sound, good battery life, and a good feature set, and are generally well built. Their customer service has also been easy to deal with in the past. So when I saw the FitSport Wireless earbuds, I knew I wanted to review them. I'm glad I did. I have other, more expensive pairs of earbuds and in-ear monitors that cost between three and ten times what these do. Some of those more expensive earbuds have lesser audio quality, some have shorter battery life. The FitSport Wireless compares favorably to all of them because they live up to their 6 hour battery life claim while listening to anything from rapid-fire metal to bass-heavy electronic music, with little distortion unless you turn the volume up to 11 (if you've seen "This Is Spinal Tap", you'll know the reference) and set the EQ for more bass response. Speaking of, these headphones have a nice feature that is generally reserved for more expensive earbuds and headphones - a built-in EQ. While it's not a nice software-controlled EQ like you'd find in high-end headphones and earbuds, it does give you three modes - balanced (the equivalent of flat), bass boost (where the low-end gets cranked up), and JLab Signature Sound (which cranks up the highs and lows for heavy bass and crisp treble). All three modes worked well, but like previously stated, turning the volume all the way up with the bass level boosted does lead to some distortion. The ear tips are also a pleasure. The "wings" do a good job of holding the buds in place when you're active, and with FOUR choices of ear tips, you'll find a good fit (I preferred the large silicone tips, but the foam "Cloud" tips were pretty nice). These earbuds also report battery life to iOS devices. They didn't report battery life to my Android 7.1 tablet, however. Some Android devices may receive the battery life information, however. All in all, you can't beat the value of these ear buds.

    Overall, I'll stick to my more expensive, but better quality Plantronics BackBeat Fit and Fit 3100 series sets. At the $30 asking price, I think the JLab FitSport3 perform very well and definitely warrant a look depending on your needs. I've never been too big of a fan of the dangling wire on the "semi-wireless" earphones. At least this set comes with a shirt clip and that adds a star. I'm not a fan of the wireless buds with a neck band, adding the clip will keep the wires from jumping around too much. The sound is decent with great bass, a decent mids, the highs are pretty "tinny" sounding though; like talking through a tin can. Controls are easily accessible and provide enough functionality to not need to use the phone to do much other than provide content. Bluetooth connection seemed fine; I don't think I've owned a headset yet that if the phone is in a cargo pocket or back pocket and turn just right it cuts outs for a second. Fit? Given that the wireless charge lasts up to six hours, I don't think you would need to worry about it lasting longer if you are planning to wear them continuously. The "Flexible Memory Wire", while convenient in holding the buds in your ears, is not all that comfortable. More than 2 hours and I think you will be ready to move on. While I see the idea behind the "Flexible Memory Wire" I think the reality is that you will be having to adjust these each time you go to put them on as the "flexible" wire will flex in storage. It's a cost cutting measure for sure. In which you cannot argue with the cost for a "wireless" setup, with decent sound. If you are on a budget for semi-wireless ear-clip earbuds, I think you get a pretty good bang for buck. I recommend these if you are just getting in to wireless headphones, want a cheap pair to work in the yard or for fitness, or a cheap set for your kids. Looking at the other headsets in this price range, I think its the best option if you are wanting an "ear-clip" style and not an "ear-bud" with or without a neck band.

    When I received these JLAB Fit Sport 3 ear phones I figured they would be like other in ear sport earphones that I had had. Those others just didn’t seem to fit and because of the poor fit they had not sounded that good. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how really good these Fit Sport 3 earphones are. The package contains the earphones, quick start guide, a package of different size earbud tips and a charging USB wire. The fit is comfortable and creates a very good seal in the ear which helps to block out outside noise. The sound quality is excellent and they provide you with three EQ modes that are easy to cycle through using the buttons on the connecting wire between the two earphones. The highs are clean and the bass is full but not boomy. Listening to music on the JLAB’s is where these really excel. Regardless of the music type, they never felt fatiguing. The JLAB’s also connect easily to your phone’s Bluetooth providing both music streaming and private calling as well. The battery life is rated at six hours and will vary based on use. I have averaged just over six with continuous use. These are easy earphones to recommend to anyone who is looking for great workout earphones that don’t compromise on sound quality and can be used for everyday activities as well.

    First I have to look at the price, and considering that these are a serviceable pair of earbuds that I won’t have to worry about losing or damaging when out and about. For walking the dog, going to the pool or beach, working in the yard, heading out for some shopping – any situation where I want to listen to music/audiobook/podcast/radio – these are just fine. The sound quality is not at the top end, but who cares when there is outside noise from people, traffic, or chopping logs? Crank up the volume and fill up your head with sound, and the high fidelity set of headphones is waiting at the house later on when it is time to settle down and focus on getting the best quality. Battery life is OK – about 6 to 8 hours depending on volume. I can pop these in and go to sleep listening to my Harry Potter audiobooks, and since the audiobook player cuts off after 90 minutes the earbuds go into standby and they are usually OK for a few more hours listening in the morning before they have to be put back on charge. Very serviceable and enough battery life to make a good day around town before needing to worry about a swap. Microphone is OK as well – phone calls are not any better or worse than other similar earbuds I have used, so nothing to really complain about here. I don’t spend a lot of time on the phone with earbuds, but when a call comes in these work just fine. Fit – there are lots of ear tips and some cushions to customize the fit. About the same as most everyone else. These are the “sport” model meaning they hook over your ears, so they tend to stay in better with the extra stability of the hooks. Overall, these are a serviceable set of earbuds with pretty good battery life and a secure fit. For the price, a good deal and as long as you are comfortable with the over-the-ear hook, you should be OK for ‘general purpose’ listening.

    Bluetooth headphones that don’t break the bank

    These sports style headphones will help you block out the world around you while you when it’s time to work out. They are cheap and they do the basic job intended, pushing sound to your ears without wires or others hearing it. The Good: For a cheap pair of Bluetooth headphones, these are easy to use and have great battery life. The box indicates 6+ hours of playtime, and that was borne out out in my usage. These charged with a standard micro USB connection that don’t require a dongle or similar adapter that some, more expensive, headsets use. These are sweat proof for your workouts or in the rain. They are easy to pair, quickly linking up with your favorite Bluetooth source. The controls are large and easy to feel while you are wearing them. The Bad: There’s very little depth to the sound with these headphones. While these work well for podcasts, music suffers greatly. They reproduce mid tones well but there is a definite drop off in both high notes and low notes. The headset comes with several different tips you can find your perfect tips. It even comes with Comply foam for those that prefer to avoid silicon. These hold onto your ears with stiff wires. They generally work well, but can be difficult to get into the exact right position the first time. After fitting them, they are decent for 30-60 minutes of usage. The Rest: JLab has gone to great lengths to create a pair of affordable Bluetooth earbuds. These will meet the needs of books on the budget without much concern about sound quality. There are much better options starting around $50-$60 from JLab and others. Bluetooth can sound much better than what these deliver.

    So far so good! I was worried about the quality, but really not that bad. I have been using them routinely for both music and phone calls with my iPhone XS Max. I mainly use these while running & exercising only, so sound quality isn't super important to me. I need ear buds that don't fall out and keep my work out going. Bass is good as well as overall sound. Not a ton of highs, mids or lows. Pretty average/flat on sound quality, but fits the bill for what I need. Loud and a lot of bass, perfect for running. Stays on my ears really well. Call quality is not that good. I've used it for making calls couple of times and the other person had hard time understanding my voice. So I would not recommend these headphones for making calls. Battery life is average (6 hours). My other headphones last for about 20 hours which has set my expectations quite high. If you want these for sometimes use, then they are fantastic. They are by no means the ear buds you should be buying for all the time use, but for running for an hour, these are great. Comes with multiple ear bud sizes both plastic and foam. I use the foam and is 100% noise cancelling that don't move at all. For 30 bucks, you really cant beat the price. If you're an audiophile, don't waste your time and go buy yourself $100+ headphones, but personally I think that's a waste. One thing that has really impressed me about these headphones is that they are IP55 water resistant, so I don't have to worry about sweat getting into it while working out. If you are looking for a budget headphones, go for it.

    I can't believe how good these headphones work and sound for the money. They sound as good as headphones that cost way more. I don't have to worry about getting my expensive headphones dirty or sweating on them. Pros -Low Cost -Multiple styles and sizes of ear inserts are included. -Controls are easy to use. -In ear design provides decent noise isolation. I use them while mowing and you don't have to turn the volume way up to hear. -Easily paired with a Samsung S7 and a Bluetooth enabled HP laptop. Things to consider -Real battery life is shorter than some more expensive sets at just over 6 hours, but I had no issue with it in practical use. -Only a USB cord is included. -The control panel hangs from the right ear bud and while it is lite weight it might bother some. -The wiring and flex wire that can be bent around the ear are lite weight and could fail if yanked or kinked. -No case I love these and would recommend them to anyone looking for an affordable pair of Bluetooth headphones.

    Decent bluetooth earbuds at a nice price

    Since our family seem to go through cheaper wired earbuds due to the quality (you get what you pay for), I decided to take a little step up and also go wireless. So far, these are working quite well. The sound is really good, especially once you get the equalizer set to your liking on your device and the built-in setting, with the bass being much better that I had expected. I prefer the Bass Boost built-in setting as the normal mode does seem to make the treble sound a bit off. The buds fit comfortably for me right out of the box, but it does come with other sizes and styles. There is a stiffer covering on the wire that goes behind your year to hold it in place better, but you can also shape it to fit you better. The control box is a little bigger than I would like… It's not too bad, but as big as some of the cheaper off-brand ones. The volume control is internal to the headphones, so it doesn't just control the device volume. I haven't tried to run them from full charge till they died, and probably won't, so not sure about how accurate the expected 6+ hour battery life is. They probably won't be used for workouts (mainly just listening to music around the house or watching TV at night), but these should work just fine.

    Comfort and sound are the most important features I found. I've worm earbuds before but the earpiece slipped into my ear and the memory wire curved around my ear snugly without being uncomfortable. Even could wear my reader glasses without a problem. JLAB added a small button when cinched, holds the lightweight receiver firmly around the back of my neck. I felt very confident shoveling snow this morning and it never came loose. Pink Floyd on Pandora was my sound test bed. I have to admit I was surprised the bass had nice tones and the timber of symbols came through clear as a bell. NOTE: comes with a special three (3) month Pandora offer. I didn't try the microphone yet, but its great to have when your cellphone is neatly secured in my pocket or armband carrier. Overall I am very pleased with the performance and comfort ( and cost) of the JLab Audio Sport Fitness headset.

    Right out of the box, these wireless earbuds are light weight and easy to sync up with the press of a button. They have a great sound with a decent bass pick up. Sometimes over the ear devices can become a bit bothersome, but these earbuds have a memory wire that goes behind the ear which makes for some easy adjustments that are comfortable. The box contains a few different pairs of ear tips which as well. The packaging claims to have an IP55 rating, which states that water projected by a nozzle against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect. while i did not run this product under a faucet, i did used a damp towel to rise them off after a workout and they still functioned great afterwards. The mic function when using the earbuds as a phone were great as well, the call sounded clear on both ends. Music sounds pleasant. All in all, for the price point, these headphones are a great buy.

    With all the features provided the JLAB Fit 3 wireless earbuds feel more like a pair of $75 earbuds. Out of the box they sound great but after the burn in period the sound just gets better. 3 equalizer settings are provided which are JLAB signature (amplified bass and vocals), balanced and bass boost. My favorite so far has been the JLAB signature. JLAB provides a set of gel cushion tips, foam tip and a shirt clip that helps keep them in place during intense work outs. They're very comfortable to use for an extended period of time. With an IP55 rating the earbuds should have no problems against the elements. They should be fine no matter what type of workout you do. Battery life is rated at 6+ hours but for my usage it's been closer to the 8hr mark. If you're looking for an affordable wireless earbuds you can't go wrong with JLAB Fit 3. They sound great, excellent battery life, 2 years of warranty coverage and IP55 rating for those intense workouts.

    Not sure how anyone gives above a 3 star for these

    These headphones are some of the worst that I have ever bought, especially for being "fit" AKA workout headphones. The design of the in-line volume controls being very close to the right headphone means that if any amount of sweat gets near that earbud, it will NOT stay in your ear no matter what. This is because the in-line controls are quite heavy and if you run or do cardio, they will fall out of your ears. I also only owned these for around 3 months before they started to really get worn out. I would shop elsewhere if you are looking for decent workout headphones that are also wireless. On a positive note, the sound from the headphones, as well as the noise cancellation was decent, albeit for workout headphones. That and the actual design of the heaphones was comfortable, but did tend to irritate my ears after around 2 hours of wearing them.

    Budget "wireless" sport headphones

    Note these aren't truly wireless - they have a cable that connects the 2 ears. They are "wireless" in that they connect via blue tooth to your phone or other audio. Both my wife and I had a hard time getting these to fit right. I like the idea of the flexible/pliable wrap around ear design, but a bit uncomfortable in the ear and tough to get to stay put. Wasn't super impressed with the sound quality, but this may be due to not being able to get them to fit right. Pros: Flexible and wrap around design, bluetooth, inexpensive, lightweight, multiple "equalizer/sound" type adjustments. Cons: Uncomfortable, tough to put on, tinny sound.

    Promising, Then They Die

    Bought my first of two pairs in July and they worked quite well (great sound, good bluetooth pairing, etc.) for the first two months. By October, the pairing was having problems, sound was broken, and then they finally stopped taking a charge. I returned this pair, figuring they were faulty and they were replaced at no charge. My new pair has experienced the same life span and they are now dead (stopped pairing, on/off button doesn't seem to work). I work out a lot, so a lot of sweat would work it's way into the ear bud portion. I suspect this is the problem. These headphones can't actually handle sweat. I would dry them off with my towel after each workout. But since I experienced the same exact problems and life span with these headphones, I cannot recommend them for everyday workout use.
