Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"Called the Help Line after reading some of the reviews that said that less then 1% of the units have faulty Bluetooth."
_
"Help line explained that the antenna is in on the BACK of the power bar and that when it touches your body it will cut the single due to Bluetooth not able to pass through water(your body)."
_
"The battery life is amazing, the button ease of use is super easy, the fit and how it stays on your head is the best I have used compared to even more expensive brands, the water resistance has yet to fail on me, but the only reason I have given this 3 instead of 5 stars is the bluetooth."
_
"The bluetooth connectivity has been extremely frustrating."
_
"but VERY POOR BLUETOOTH CONNECTION.. Do NOT recommend to use as a fitness headset."
_
"This is my second pair of bluetooth headphones that failed immediately after opening!"
_
"Sound quality is very good for a bluetooth set."
_
"They didn't know I already owned a very nice pair of bluetooth earbuds (Jaybird X2s)."
_
"I'm an avid trail runner looking for a good set of Bluetooth buds to listen to Audible (multiple hour runs are common for me)."
_
"How sad because these could have been the best bluetooth headset out there hands down."
_
"So the search began and I have looked all over the internet to find a good set of water-resistant Bluetooth headphones."

Cable

Cable:
"The only downside is the cord management clips are a little loose."
_
"I bought these mostly because I wanted to get rid of an inconvenient and fussy headphone cord when walking around town."
_
"Bought these to circumvent that problem (and that of cable management when running biking)."
_
"Also, I found the cord somewhat annoying, but I have a feeling that I'll get the hang of it eventually."
_
"The cord is uncomfortable even with the clips."
_
"Cable failed after less than 2 months of daily use-not worth repairing due to the high price of TRRS plugs."
_
"The cord on these are great."
_
"I changed the way I had the cord clipped up each workout to find the best position for me, and the last one had it closest to my head."
_
"They also come with various ear tip sizes, as well as a manageable cable."
_
"Overall, these work great for me for how I use them and I do really enjoy the freedom of not having a cable."

Charging

Charging:
"It won't charge, won't function, complete failure."
_
"The only downside is that it doesn't stayed paired while charging."
_
"Made multiple attempts to follow online troubleshooting tips, charging for lengths of time etc I active duty military, deployed, so working a replacement return in time to meet the sellers return policy was not feasible, so not-to-military-friendly policy I am stuck with buds, in their original packaging."
_
"However, they broke down before I had to even charge them second time."
_
"I finally was able to get them to turn on and paired again, but the charging light no longer works leaving me without knowing visually if they're charged or not."
_
"I now charge them with the USB port of my computer, or a 0.7Amp wall charger, and they've been working great."
_
"I found the battery life to be very good and does not require everyday charging if you use them for listening to your gym workouts."
_
"They pair easily, the charge lasts, the range is very good, the controls work well and they are the most comfortable over the ear headphones I have used."
_
"In the middle of the run, battery drain out, as expected so upon returning home, plug it in my mac to charge as well as update my Garmin."

Clip

Clip:
"The only downside is the cord management clips are a little loose."
_
"The cord is uncomfortable even with the clips."
_
"Ok they get to me pretty quick and packaging cool lots of earbud sizes and clips for the back that are useless ill explain shortly....so i take them out find the right ear piece and pair them instantly pair to my Note 4....they felt a little strange to the way they fit at first the cord that hangs down in the back is annoying but thats what the clips are for."
_
"It lacks a clothing clip, so it easily gets caught on things and damaged."
_
"I owned a pair of Lebron Beats wired headphones and the ear clips on those could be easily reshaped and they held their shape until you wanted them to move."
_
"Great feature but the wire will keep coming out of the clip when you're running."
_
"They are not loud either....ok so i say lets put these clips on and go for a jog....as soon as i put that phone in my pocket i lost signal....i was like no way....$100 headphones that cut out instantly ....i even just waved my hand by my right ear and they cut out as well ..remind you LG never cut out unless your 50ft away.....so i say maybe i need to charge them so i do for a couple hours...go to the gym and put my phone in my cubby and walk 10ft away they cut out....man...i was kinda depressed i was stoked to get these....So i just took them off and Called the Customer service next day and she pretty much told me try taking your clips off the back so the chord can hang that helps me she says and keep your phone on the right side of your body."
_
"Light thin cord doesn't stick to skin but using the clips provided makes for a perfect fit and keeps everything out of the way for activities."
_
"Well done JLAB;) And they look good the cable shortening clips are perfect as well!"

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Unfortunately they are not comfortable for extended wear."
_
"I don't like the ear fins as they are hard to put on and not as comfortable as the old fins but sound quality is great the base is nice and deep the highs and lows are there"
_
"They feel very comfortable, just not great usefulness so far due to consistent connection problems."
_
"Headphones work well and are comfortable, but Bluetooth connection has very weak range."
_
"I purchased this due to the many rave reviews about the sound quality, and based on wirecutters mention that they will be rewriting their guide to make this their number one recommendation... but the sound quality is just not that great, and neither were the fit and comfort."
_
"A bit disappointed because I read several reviews saying how comfortable these were."
_
"Great fit, good sound and very comfortable but really poor quality."
_
"Comfort: Much more comfortable than I had anticipated."

Connection

Connection:
"In reading through the other reviews, it appears that I'm not alone as there are apparently lots of complaints regarding connection issues and other problems."
_
"The bluetooth connectivity has been extremely frustrating."
_
"but VERY POOR BLUETOOTH CONNECTION.. Do NOT recommend to use as a fitness headset."
_
"However, their connection was disrupted by such challenging activities as: putting on a jacket, reaching above my head, taking off a jacket, walking, standing on a street corner, standing in an empty park (presumably isolated as best as I'll ever be from RF interference), looking over my shoulder, taking my phone out of my pocket..."
_
"What holds them back:1) Bluetooth connectivity = horrible...I can literally have the headset on connected to my phone (Galaxy S5) that is sitting in my breast pocket of my dress shirt."
_
"I tried everything in their troubleshooting tips and while the headphones worked great indoors, they still don't keep a connection while outdoors."
_
"Once connected I could easily move 30ft away from my phone(Sony Xperia) and they maintained rock solid connection."
_
"Great sound quality, solid Bluetooth connection, and surprisingly comfortable."
_
"That being said the connectivity range is good."
_
"Bluetooth connectivity has been pretty much instant and flawless, though there can be a bit of popping and stuttering in dense city areas (lots of RF interference?"

Control

Control:
"On the first use I thought i broke them with water the first time the battery died since FIRST you will lose control functionality, THEN when it is finally dead the music stops...."
_
"Cons - first pair broke(control buttons) - Had to pay shipping fees twice(back and forth) which somehow make you pay for your warranty 20% of the earbud price each time you go through the return process."
_
"Upon my first jog I found the controls near unresponsive."
_
"More significant is that the controls aren't as easy to push as on other headsets."
_
"The controls and voice feedback is great, using the controls without being able to see them is well done and easy to pick up, the bluetooth setup was flawless."
_
"Unfortunately, due to the way they are designed, the mic and controls gets hidden in my hair and people on the other end can't hear me."
_
"They pair easily, the charge lasts, the range is very good, the controls work well and they are the most comfortable over the ear headphones I have used."
_
"a better material that can save the curve would be appreciated.3) control buttons too high, could've bring them a bit lower for convenient reach."
_
"In the mic, there are buttons to control the volume and also a button to easily switch on off that also can be used to take incoming calls."
_
"Controls were easy to remember."
_
"The tiny control panel has an exceptional layout to find the three buttons easily and the on off button is separated and finished differently for easy tactile discovery."

Customization

Customization:
"they aren't the best I had for that price but they certainly deliver with the customizable cushion, and impact"
_
"Ultimately I've switched back to my non-wireless JLab sports headphones (JLab JBuds EPIC earbuds with 13mm C3 Massive Drivers and Customizable Cush Fins - Black) which sound fantastic."
_
"I will say that the better than average fit due to customizability contributes to better effective sound for the quality."
_
"Comfortable, customizable, and great audio quality."
_
"The earbuds themselves come with a lot of customization which includes the rubber buds themselves as well as an outer ring which rests on the inner circle of your ear."
_
"I was initially a bit frustrated with trying to find the right fit, but these earbuds come with so many customization pieces that I was eventually able to find that just right fit."

Design

Design:
"The downside of this minimalist design is that there's no standby way to wear them."
_
"Unfortunately, due to the way they are designed, the mic and controls gets hidden in my hair and people on the other end can't hear me."
_
"My first problem with the product is the design of the ear piece piece that goes around your ear to hold the earbuds in place."
_
"I was not sure that I liked the design of this one with the extra ear piece so I applied the credit to two different pair of ear buds."
_
"I am very tired of paying 50 dollars for headphones that have no durability and are poorly designed."
_
"The base is strong and he noise isolation is phenomenal due to the well designed cush fins and gel tips."
_
"The overall design and product quality is good, they fit and stay put, my main use is mountain biking so I'm getting bounced around a lot."
_
"(Plus, the headset should be designed robust enough to not need special accessories."
_
"Design: nicely designed but feels a little loose around my ears."

Durability

Durability:
"Durability: I can't say anything about that because it broke after two weeks maybe iHowever, I'm waiting for a reply from Jlab so hopefully I'll update this note if I receive a reponse."
_
"I love the fit and sound, but the durability is just terrible."
_
"The sound was amazing, unfortunately the durability is not up to par with the sound quality."
_
"The most concerning problem I have is the durability."
_
"Area where the most ear buds fail is durability if regularly used during intense work outs."
_
"I've also owned the bluebuds X. I feel that product despite the price is a superior product both in sound quality AND in durability."
_
"I still have to find out about durability, I'm pretty rough on headphones."
_
"I love the fit and sound, but the durability is just terrible."
_
"The durability of these is pretty low because I went through 3 pairs, with none lasting longer than 2-3 months of moderate use."
_
"The sound was amazing, unfortunately the durability is not up to par with the sound quality."

Fit

Fit:
"I've never been a fan of ear buds because they don't sound good and the fit is terrible."
_
"The fit was uncomfortable."
_
"Now, after weeks of testing using these I would say they fit is Ok, but not great."
_
"The only downside is that the fit is a bit uncomfortable."
_
"As far as comfort goes, this package comes with 4 fins and 6 gel tips that not only look good, but also have a size that will fit everybody."
_
"Also, it could be because I have small ears, but the fit was annoying; I had to wear a headband while working out to keep them in my ears, even after trying all the ear pieces that came with the headphones, they would not stay in."
_
"You should play around with the different silicone tips in order to find the one set that fits best your ear canal."
_
"They have a very good fit for running and they sound great."
_
"Fit is very good, similar to my profession custom fit in-ear monitors (should probably mention I'm also an audio engineer) so the whole upside down twist in your ear thing is second nature to me."
_
"The battery life is amazing, the button ease of use is super easy, the fit and how it stays on your head is the best I have used compared to even more expensive brands, the water resistance has yet to fail on me, but the only reason I have given this 3 instead of 5 stars is the bluetooth."

Heavy

Heavy:
"Initially I thought they were great, have been looking for a product like this for ages- a bluetooth sports headphone that delivered decent sound and could handle a heavy workout."
_
"They stay in ears pretty well, and they aren't particularly heavy."
_
"(I mostly listen to hard rock heavy metal)The JLab Epics sound good once you find the right fit."
_
"I am a real bass head these are the the Best in ear bass heavy headphones I have ever had they seem really durable too they also dont lack in other genres of music as well no complaints here but we will see how they hold up over time great deal for the money"
_
"And sometimes it keeps working perfectly well even with some distance and heavy dense objects between the earbuds and my phone."

Light

Light:
"When I came back the headphones were dead - no lights, no sound, nothing."
_
"I finally was able to get them to turn on and paired again, but the charging light no longer works leaving me without knowing visually if they're charged or not."
_
"These get two stars instead of one as they are light and I found them comfortable."
_
"Fantastic product, sturdy, light, hangs on well in gym be it running or weights."
_
"They felt light, they were comfortable and I don't remember having to adjust them or push them back in (something I did from time to time with my wired set)."
_
"The sound is good and the set is very light."

Listening

Listening:
"Battery life is great both while listening - they basically last so long I've never been able to time how long they last - probably over 8 hours?"
_
"Crystal clear, comfortable sounds for listening, only downside is the microphone isn't as loud and clear as it could be - deserves more a 4.5 than a 4 star rating though."
_
"The sound quality is excellent while listening to music or making phone calls."
_
"Listening to music and podcasts is great."
_
"I enjoy them for critical listening, fun listening, podcasts, talking on the phone, working out, etc etc etc."
_
"Also, the sound quality for the person on the headphones listening to the person on the phone was really nice and crisp."

Material

Material:
"These sound real nice, however the quality of the materials these earbuds are made from feel rather flimsy."
_
"Another complaint, is the material the cord is made out of tends to stick to the back of your neck when you sweat."
_
"They looked like the real deal (great packaging, made from quality materials, etc.)."
_
"These are quality headphones made out of good materials."
_
"These sound real nice, however the quality of the materials these earbuds are made from feel rather flimsy."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The microphone is not located in a great spot (on the back of your neck) but I just string the wire in front of my neck instead of behind."
_
"Mic is not the greatest for sound quality but is passable."
_
"This has also been used with different phones, so in my opinion there may be an issue or defect with the microphone provided, or it's just not very good at picking up a user's voice."
_
"I didn't notice this at first because I initially had my laptop microphone turned on when I thought I was testing the Epic microphone, a silly mistake."
_
"Their most concrete suggestion for the microphone problem was to hold the microphone away from my face."
_
"Turning audio volume up seemed to help the microphone sensitivity on some of the devices but that created its own problems, leaving me trying to tolerate too-loud audio volume and still having to shout to make myself heard."
_
"Again, I have had $20 BT headsets that have great microphones and I can use without any issue outside on a windy day or noisy room of people."
_
"The sound is very clear and mic works really fine."
_
"The microphone and conversation ability is less outstanding, but I am going to assume this is because the microphone sits towards the back of the neck, away from the voice."
_
"The fact that the Mic was pretty useless combines with the BT reception issues is what made me send these back."

Music

Music:
"Nothing more disappointing than to be in the middle of a marathon and have your music stop."
_
"On the first use I thought i broke them with water the first time the battery died since FIRST you will lose control functionality, THEN when it is finally dead the music stops...."
_
"I listened to several styles of music from classical to contemporary and felt like I was missing a good portion of the music."
_
"It got worse when I tried to push the mower around the yard--the sound cut out frequently, sometimes for several seconds at a time, making it irritating for music and unusable for an audiobook."
_
"Have had these for a few months now and the only problem is that there's some crackling during the playing of my music."
_
"Music quality is untouchable for the price I paid and would have easily paid full-price now knowing how good they are."
_
"Volume was fine very clear and distinct, as well as I could hear cars coming and going and dogs barking to some degree the external noise did not degrade the quality or volume of the music."
_
"The sound quality is excellent while listening to music or making phone calls."
_

Noise

Noise:
"The sound quality is pretty good as well as the noise cancelling, but they're uncomfortable for me."
_
"I gave them a run through paces including an RF challenging environment with spurious 2.4GHz radio noise, neighborhoods, exercising, indoors, places when the phone's WiFi is transmitting at full power."
_
"I've used3 sets of Klipsch earbuds, and loved the sound and noise isolation, but the microphone would get sweaty and broke after several weeks of use."
_
"And it is really not so comfortable but the noise canceling function is okay"
_
"Some folks complained of cord noise when being active."
_
"Technically, they're not noise-cancelling, but a tight proper fit in your ear definitely eliminates a lot of noise in the gym, especially the annoying public music that's blasting quite loudly sometimes."
_
"Sound is good and they block out outside noise well but the over the ear hangers are pretty much for looks only."
_
"While I prefer to be able to hear the necessary noises while outside running, I do also like a good quality sound while running."
_
"They sound great, fit well, and best of all make near no noise when running or flipping."
_
"It had good sound quality, never tangled, and blocked out other noise perfectly."
_
"Volume was fine very clear and distinct, as well as I could hear cars coming and going and dogs barking to some degree the external noise did not degrade the quality or volume of the music."

Packaging:
"Packaging frustration rich."

_
"They looked like the real deal (great packaging, made from quality materials, etc.)."
_
"This was somewhat decent out of the box, very cool packaging."
_
"When it arrived I found the retail packaging to be excellent and beautiful."

_
"Well packaged with lots of different tips."

Pairing

Pairing:
"Tested this problem by pairing the headset with multiple devices and it was the same across all of them."
_
"Had problem with bluetooth pairing with phone and noticed that phone was trying to use previously stored bluetooth connection."
_
"The only downside is that it doesn't stayed paired while charging."
_
"The good:* Sound quality is amazing good for a Bluetooth device, the best of it category (comparing with Beats Wireless 2, Jaybird X and Jabra Rox)* Comfortable and stable after you get the correct way to attach in the ear* Pair with 2 devices and switch between them very fast* It looks solid, have a beautiful case* It's the best noise isolation overall (comparing with Beats Wireless 2, Jaybird X and Jabra Rox)The bad:* Slow and not efficient support* The microfone on the back is just useless, when it's in the front isn't good too* The voice maximum volume bug when paired with computer, or if you're using Apple Watch (it bugs and keep loop, so you can't use maximum volume ever)* It doesn't work for 10 hours, maybe 6 to 7 hours* It doesn't sleep when you stop the sound for long period, it keep burning the battery for ever* If you have 3 devices what you can pair the headset, it's a mess!"
_
"And the Jaybirds have Siri control which is nice.+ The Epics paired with the other phone had the same problems as with my phone."
_
"Everything was looking great until the moment I paired them with my iPhone and played a couple of songs."
_
"I finally was able to get them to turn on and paired again, but the charging light no longer works leaving me without knowing visually if they're charged or not."
_
"Easy pairing."
_
"I've used it paired to my Samsung Galaxy S4 Android phone as well as my Apple iPod Touch."

_
"These headphones are cheap overseas headphones with a high failure rate."
_
"Beware spending money on these."
_
"Unfortunately I don't have the money in my budget to afford new headphones so I guess I'll just keep listening to everything in mono."
_
"It had promise in the beginning, but I can't recommend these and am pretty disappointed that I spent money on them."
_
"I have had many headphones, and as far as sound quality, this is one of the worst, particularly considering the price."

_
"Call quality i. e. the person on the other end doesn't hear the best audio coming from you.2."
_
"I don't like the ear fins as they are hard to put on and not as comfortable as the old fins but sound quality is great the base is nice and deep the highs and lows are there"

Response

Response:
"Absolutely horrible bass response."
_
"I think my only complain is that the bass response could be better."
_
"Terrible bass response."
_
"While the control scheme is on par with most other earbuds, the button itself is rather mushy & has a pretty terrible tactile response."

"The higher frequency response was good, though.3."
_
"The customer service is above par as well, with quick response time, and efficient service."

Shape

Shape:
"However not everybody has the same shape ear and I could be wrong about the fins."
_
"So the clarity is excellent, only falling behind the JVC HA-FX40, but the FX40 has an awfully deep and unnaturally scooped V shape that makes it not nearly as good as the Epic."
_
"I owned a pair of Lebron Beats wired headphones and the ear clips on those could be easily reshaped and they held their shape until you wanted them to move."
_
"Pros:1) best sound quality ever2) perfect fit3) great battery life4) cool designRoom for improvement:1) feels delicate, like it can be easily damaged (i'm praying it doesn't)2) the flexible adjustable curve around the ear can lose shape easily, and needs readjustments every now and then."
_
"Don't be intimidated by the overwhelming available combination options of ear buds and cush fins; simply choose the size of ear bud that fits your ears best and then add the shape of cush fin that feels the most comfortable in your ear."
_
"The memory wire doesn't really hold it's shape well, and it springs back significantly."
_
"Awesome they sound great they go toe to toe with beats there comfortable and fit every ear shape great bass aslo"

Size

Size:
"As far as comfort goes, this package comes with 4 fins and 6 gel tips that not only look good, but also have a size that will fit everybody."
_
"Also, it could be because I have small ears, but the fit was annoying; I had to wear a headband while working out to keep them in my ears, even after trying all the ear pieces that came with the headphones, they would not stay in."
_
"I haven't had issues with them falling out and that is a big problem for me as my ears are very small."
_
"I only have one small complaint."
_
"I really wanted to use the flange-style tips, but the sound was bad (no bass) because they were too small for my ear canal.+ Range is about 35-40 ft, which is not great, but matches what JLab advertises so I listed it as a Pro."
_
"I hope it fits on your ears (my ears arent noticably big or small)Ear piece: Not a good quality."
_
"Very good sound for such a small headset."
_
"I tried all the included inserts that supposed to make it comfortable to wear, to adjust for the size of the ear etc."
_
"They come with plenty of sizes but the default sizes worked perfectly for me."
_
"Works great, lots of options for different ear sizes and types."

_

Speaker

Speaker:
"phone speaker does not good well at all."
_
"Arrived but unfortunately only one earbud speaker functioned."
_
"Now it is possible that both speakers were malfunctioning and I was not even getting good sound from the one working one."
_
"GREAT SPEAKERS."
_
"Truly enjoyed the earbuds until one speaker went out.. would love a replacement."
_
"Quality: feels high quality and advancedEase of use: connects easily, tells you when it's connected, volume, and caller but I think it needs to have softer buttonsSound quality: nice speakers and microphone quality but I didn't have much time to further tests."
_
"Now it is possible that both speakers were malfunctioning and I was not even getting good sound from the one working one."
_
"The cush fins really help to keep the speakers in your ear, but those cush fins easily fall off if when not in use."

Treble

Treble:
"I have quite a few of the Jlab line, J3-J6's, J-fi's, and a pair of Bombora over-ears, and these have the worst treble and mids by far."
_
"The treble is shrill until they've been used for 50 hours or so; I'm amazed how much smoother the treble became."
_
"They have good base and treble, volume can get very loud."
_
"Very Balanced sound with clear vocal quality and good treble and bass."
_
"So looking for certain bass and treble isn't something that is a top priority, but good quality of hearing different volumes of voices and being able to talk and have people hear me and be able to hear on the phone without having to pull my phone out of a pocket while my hands are wet or dirty."

Voice

Voice:
"Just a couple minor issues: connectivity when my phone is in my left pocket is not good and the voice that says battery low is annoying(I would prefer a beep)."
_
"This has also been used with different phones, so in my opinion there may be an issue or defect with the microphone provided, or it's just not very good at picking up a user's voice."
_
"The good:* Sound quality is amazing good for a Bluetooth device, the best of it category (comparing with Beats Wireless 2, Jaybird X and Jabra Rox)* Comfortable and stable after you get the correct way to attach in the ear* Pair with 2 devices and switch between them very fast* It looks solid, have a beautiful case* It's the best noise isolation overall (comparing with Beats Wireless 2, Jaybird X and Jabra Rox)The bad:* Slow and not efficient support* The microfone on the back is just useless, when it's in the front isn't good too* The voice maximum volume bug when paired with computer, or if you're using Apple Watch (it bugs and keep loop, so you can't use maximum volume ever)* It doesn't work for 10 hours, maybe 6 to 7 hours* It doesn't sleep when you stop the sound for long period, it keep burning the battery for ever* If you have 3 devices what you can pair the headset, it's a mess!"
_
"After 3 uses the remote wire started randomly triggering and pausing music or making my iPhone go to Voice Control mode which was very frustrating."
_
"Great sound and great fit but had them 6 months, got the voice prompt power off while working out and they died."
_
"Update 1 --The microphone doesn't pick up my voice as well as my wired headset."
_
"Microphone seems to pick up my voice well."
_
"So looking for certain bass and treble isn't something that is a top priority, but good quality of hearing different volumes of voices and being able to talk and have people hear me and be able to hear on the phone without having to pull my phone out of a pocket while my hands are wet or dirty."
_
"I use these with my iPhone 5s and connection and voice commands work great."

Warranty

Warranty:
"It is about time we speak up and stop companies like JLab from producing high cost, cheaply made, products with a high failure rate and will not back their warranty."
_
"but that's why they are under warranty and i will not hesitate to send back if these problems occur."
_
"Buy it knowing all this and you are gonna be just fine and if you got a dud theres a fine year warranty use it and complain about something less idiotic."
_
"I was incredibly disappointed but THANKFULLY I held onto the warranty slip (1-year coverage) and got a free replacement."
_
"So in conclusion for all of you that are considering shelling out 50 bucks for these buds: These buds are great in audio quality, they are very comfortable, they stay in place, they are hard to tangle up, and they come with J Lab's great warranty service."
_
"They have a year warranty, which we unfortunately had to use."
_
"I would definitely recommend this brand, but find a product from them with a longer warranty."

_
"Thats a great warranty and it was a very smooth process."

Wireless

Wireless:
"They sound great for the gym, they don't sound as great as the wireless gold beats headset, but they sound good enough to work out with and that's all that matters."
_
"These are truly waterproof and I don't have to worry about my sweat making these malfunction... like my Beats wireless I had before."
_
"For what it's worth, I have had the same sweat-damage problem with the Jaybird Bluebuds X. I guess it is just impossible to create a pair of wireless earbuds that are really impervious to sweat damage! "
_
"Ok, these wireless headphones sound good."
_
"They are simply an amazing product and I recommend it to anyone looking for wireless headphones with the following things to note:Pros:- AMAZING battery life."
_
"I used the discount code for a 2nd pair of JLab Epic Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Sports earbuds because I really liked the earbuds when they worked (very comfortable in my ears, decent sound, and wireless)."
_
"So the wire is some kind of memory wire meaning it flexes around your melon quite nice not like the Beats wireless headphone where they feel a lil sticky and cling to your neck during a workout - no more of that with these."

iPhone

iPhone:
"So, the problem was when the iPhone was close to my body, in my pants pocket or even clipped to my belt."

"The bluetooth connection with my iPhone 6 was terrible."
_
"Well, using an iPhone, the range is not especially good (around 20 feet with line of sight), and is worse with the laptop."
_
"There is nothing wrong with my iPhone 6, which connects to many other Bluetooth products."
_
"I have an IPhone 6 and if this product can't connect to an IPhone 6 there is a problem."
_
"Everything was looking great until the moment I paired them with my iPhone and played a couple of songs."
_
"Easy to establish a bluetooth paring with my iPhone 6."
_
"Everything seem great until I put my iPhone in my pants pocket...just 2-3 feet from these earbuds...and started walking around."
_
"Sounded ok but doesn't work with the iPhone well."
_
"The pair with my iPhone 6 Plus easy."

iPod

iPod:
"On the other hand if I put the iPod in the front pocket of my pants with no other metallic items in the pocket the Bluetooth connection was erratic even if (as Jlab suggested) I put the iPod in my front right pants pocket to minimize distance and barriers to the transceiver near the right ear."
_
"However, for me it was really hard to maintain a good connection, even with my phone computer iPod just sitting in front of me on my desk."
_
"I got to say they sound great out the box the silicon ear pieces can be hard to stay on my ears sometimes and i wish they didnt have a microphone because they seem to make my ipod skip and pause which gets annoying during my workouts."
_
"I've used it paired to my Samsung Galaxy S4 Android phone as well as my Apple iPod Touch."
_
"The sound was also good if I put the iPod in my shirt pocket."
_
"(Starting on Monday fully charged) Bluetooth pairing was easy and connect immediately to my iPod Nano."
_
"I have some health issues and listen to a lot of CDs in bed that contain music and various non-music tapes and to music on my iPod, so comfort is critical, and I like to be able to have them in even if I'm lying on my side."
_
"Microhpone works good, even in my IPod Classic, which recorded perfectly."
