Battery

"Better reception should also mean better battery life (correct me if I'm wrong), so looks like the main problem is compatibility with my work laptop."

_
"Note these are Bluetooth 4.0 and may not sound as good or get as good battery life on 3.0 devices."

Connection

Connection:
"Sound quality is great but I get five 10 feet away from my phone and the connection is horrible I literally have to have my phone on me"
_
"It's finicky to get connected and it can be frustrating."
_
"I even confirmed this in the documentstion included and in the description on Amazon.. you can only play or pause, but not skip tracks :(There is a crackle that can be heard intermittently when wearing the set.. can't identify cause, but have suspicion it is with the bluetooth connection, which brings me to the last con...The connection is not the greatest... in the documentation it explains you have to keep the set close to the device it is connected to and you cannot put the device in your pocket because your body may block signal (seriously, this is written in documentation)..."
_
"It was not easy to get the charger to stay connected to the headphones."
_
"Later on, my father helped me figure out the problem (which I still don't understand but, oh well, it's connected now)."
_
"I was able to maintain a stable connection to my note 3 for almost 25 paces before audio cut out."
_
"Connection can be good at times, but occasionally I'll get static cutting in and out while listening to music."
_
"I cannot stress how terrible the connectivity is on these things."
_
"Range is excellent - I've walked at least 30 feet from my phone and the connection was solid, with only an occasional stutter."
_
"- I'm not having any problems with connectivity or charging."

Fit

Fit:
"Do not fit well in your ear and very low volume"
_
"My hubby says they fit weird in his ears and only hold a charge for about two hours."
_
"Dislike, fist they hurt my ears because of the fit."
_
"I originally had purchased the $220 S400BT which sounded really great, but they had a terrible fit (far too loose, yet somehow painful at the same time) and an entirely non-intuitive touch interface which resulted in repeated accidental calls and hangups on people or pausing starting music on my laptop...to date, I haven't found a way to customize the controls to prevent this, so I returned them after 3 weeks."
_
"Everyone complaining about fit - have you tried contacting JBL?"
_
"They didn't come with any instructions, the earbuds don't fit as well in my ears (even though 3 sizes are supplied) and it's very hard to tell when they are on."
_
"- Their fit and finish are very nice, along with the pads that I guess help to stabilize the headphones when working out with them on."
_
"However, it fits nicely into the carrying case, so I think its unlikely."
_
"They fit well, offer audiophile quality sound with crisp highs and good bass, and come with a great looking, sturdy carrying case."
_
"They fit well, and sound so great that when I'm riding the train I can hardly hear my surroundings."
_
"Twice as good as Beats in both fit (really sticks in your ear, stands up to tugs), and sound (which is prefect btw), for half thr price!"
