    No body could hear me when making calls and whenever the microphone rubbed my shirt it made a loud noise for the person I was talking to.

    The ear buds are a bit uncomfortable and they do not get loud enough. If you are in a noisy environment, these are not for you

    Solid earbuds for the price. The sound is not as loud as I would like when doing yard work, but works great for an office setting. One con is that it drops in and out if I have my phone in my pocket for some reason.

    It fits a little clunky, but looks pretty nice for the price. Sound is ok for the price, but can be better depending on your phone or laptop. loud traffic drowns out sound. battery life is ok, lasts up to 6-8hrs, depending on use. The good thing it goes into standby and switched off on its own if its dormant for too long.

    purchased these thinking it would be a great buy based on reviews but for me didn't work out. I sweat a lot and that's just from doing cardio, I also train MMA so when I do bag work they stay on with no problem. the sweat actually gets into the speaker part and clogs up the speaker so you cant hear correctly. I would have to stop and take them off and wipe it down several times. the volume differs from platforms, so even listening to music I could still hear noise in the background at the gym and if I was watching TV through an app, I would always had to have on subtitles because even at max volume its not loud enough.

    Decent pair of wireless earbuds for working out

    I love that the earhooks are adjustable/flexible. The earbuds have foam tips that fit flush in your ear and despite the small hanging cord, they don't fall out with strenuous activity. The mic, volume, and charging port are are placed inline with the cord, but because of the placement - you can't opt to put the wire around the back of your neck without losing easy access to the volume controls. They paired right up with my Apple Watch and for the price point, the sound is decent. I like how much lighter they are than my old LG wireless Bluetooth headset. If you need a set of wireless earbuds for your workouts because you don't want to get your regular earbuds sweaty - these are a great option. The battery will last you most of the day if you're just listening to music.

    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's - The manual talks about downloading the JLab app--don't bother; it'sn't 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've 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've 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.
