    Inexpensive great sounding earbuds. Although lacking in base, the clarity is "wow". Played "Sara" by Fleetwood Mac and was taken a back on the sound quality. Who knew there was a xylophone in that arrangement? Highly recommend

    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.

    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'll 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.
