Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"I then attempted to pair to my Mixcder TV Bluetooth adapter and become frustrated and could not easily pair to this device."
_
"Now they do not hook up via bluetooth to any of my devices even when making sure there is no interfering bluetooth pairing signals ( which would cause problems sometimes on a plane)."
_
"The headphone are good but not great, the Bluetooth are not 30 ft it like 3ft and they cold do better on the built quality and its not very loud but its not bad for the money."
_
"Like with my other JAM speakers, syncing to Bluetooth couldn't have been easier, and JAM products always give me a good solid Bluetooth connection even on different levels of the house."
_
"My only negatives are probably bluetooth related but super annoying regardless.1) If you walk too far from the signal and thus deactivate the headphones, whatever you were listening to privately is suddenly broadcast over the speakers (in this case my laptop) ."
_
"At first I was kinda scared to get these ive always wanted Bluetooth wireless headphones for work, basketball, cleaning the house, cooking, etc an let me tell you these are perfect small an light which is good comfortable the ear cushions are soft and good the sound is amazing I have a pair of skull candy crushers an they sound the same the battery is good in them I used these for a trip going from my state nc to Florida an they still had battery once I got there I love them I'd recommend them to anyone only things that I dislike are I'd be cool if they folded an a better carrying case for them but that's it still 5 stars cause those things don't really matter to me I'd just like to see that but overall amazing"
_
"This will be my second pair, this one is for the wife, the sound quality is good, the controls are easy to use the bluetooth distance is good, I have a s5 and can go about 40 ft away from my phone before I start to lose reception and that is through a couple of wall at my house."
_
"I enjoy the bluetooth function."
_
"You can hear what's going on around you about the same in either application, but maybe even a little better with the JAMs, and I love that there are absolutely no wires (Bluetooth ear buds still have wires between the buds) The adjustable size and the individual swivel ear phones make wearing them for hours on end extremely comfortable."
_
"Sounds great, long battery life, solid construction, no problems with Bluetooth connectivity."
_
"Great sound, battery life, awesome bluetooth headset for the price."

Button

Button:
"Power button was hard to press and started to cause problems"
_
"The controls are hard to tell which button is which hard to plug in mini usb."
_
"With the buttons on the side you are able to play pause the music change it, go back and you are also able to answer calls just press the center play button."
_
"The play pause and volume buttons work very nicely with the Apple TV."
_
"PRO: nice look and fit - mostly plastic with metal bands connecting earcups to headband - the plastic buttons do make me question the durability (that's the half star drop--couldn't give a half so dropped to a 4) - nice finish and overall look (I have the blue color ones) - earcups pivot well in several directions; they rotate in a circular fashion a few degrees for good fit; same side to side - earcups can extend about 1.25 lower on each side for larger heads buttons seem easy to use and findcall quality; some bt headphones in this price range suffer from echo and other feedback issues; not these; calls were fine with my iPhone sound quality and clarity - so far, with all different genres (1812 Overture, ABBA, Copland, BB King, Chris Tomlin, DMB, Tito Puente, etc."
_
"Buttons are easy to use even when wearing and going by feel."

Cable

Cable:
"I thought I would just use it when I go to the gym because I hate the dumb cables, but I actually use it for everything."
_
"Cons:- Oddly the key selling point is the one major drawback: these are exclusively wireless, unlike others I have seen that sport a removable cord, that option is not here; pity because I have not been able to pair them with my Win7 Pro laptop (Lenovo T420) and would have liked to use them there."
_
"I have even had the headphone jack on one android device ruined from the cord repeatedly being yanked out; I needed something wireless."
_
"The sound was great, but once again - the cord was annoying."
_
"They worked fine, but the cord was annoying and the into-the-ear-canal sensation was tiring."
_
"Other pros are very good bass response, USB to micro USB charging cable included, aux cable included, and fairly comfortable on-the-ear adjustable fit."
_
"(USB cable)Very recommended"
_
"I also noticed that these work well for a child, because removing the cord provides less snaring or accidents while allowing sounds to be limited to one user and not a car filled with folks."
_
"The sound was great, but once again - the cord was annoying."
_
"It would have been nice if a 3.5mm cable was also included in case a wired connection was ever desired."

Charging

Charging:

_
"Same problem, after three months they won't take a charge."
_
"The charger slot broke, so cannot recharge."
_
"I charge them occasionally and they've never died- COMFORT: They're a little tighter than my other headsets - hence the reviews that they're great for running - but can affect your ear comfort after a while."
_
"On the other hand, it is kind of frustrating that you can't just plug these in when there isn't a charge or when you're at a non-bluetooth device."
_
"Worked well for around 2 weeks then the headphones wouldn't charge, so no bluetooth."
_
"Great sound but won't hold a charge."
_
"They are comfortable, hold a good charge, and have good sound."
_
"The charge is excellent (lasts 11-12 hours) and there's a 3.5 jack on it if your charge runs out on you."

Music

Music:
"The bass isn't as good as the Beats but for talk radio and standard-line music it's excellent."
_
"The music quality is very good, but I found that I'm not able to use it for hands-free calls due to poor call quality (the person on the other line is not able to understand me)."
_
"I've used these with Rhapsody (music) and Vudu (movies)--they're fantastic for movies, and very good for music (limited only by Android's terrible treble equalization parameters--no matter which EQ you use, they all seem to be limited to only 3.3 (mid-treble) and 14MHz (highest-treble) adjustments, and neither slider goes quite high enough for my liking).c) the total output capability of these phones (they beep when volume is maxed or reduced to lowest level) will likely be restrained by the applications and devices you're using--for instance, while running Rhapsody, opening another app that generates sound causes the volume of the music to drop--it's just the way Android is."
_
"I alternated listening with my other set (being replaced due to broken headband) and all of the nuances of the music were clear on the old set.... but totally lost on this set of Jams."
_
"No idea how well they work as a phone relay, I bought them for music exclusively."
_
"With the buttons on the side you are able to play pause the music change it, go back and you are also able to answer calls just press the center play button."
_
"Love to listen my music around my placeI am not an expert and quality of the sound is amazing"
_
"I use these at work mainly to watch movies and TV shows while I work (yes, that is allowed where I work as it does not interfere with my work) The comfort and sound is very good and I do listen to music through them occasionally and the sound quality is great."
_
"Recommended for gym casual music listening."
_
"Easy to connect, music plays clearly..."

Noise

Noise:
"Maybe these reviews are from folk that just like some noise against their ears.... but the sound was very disappointing for me."
_
"For under 50 bucks they have a great sound are pretty good about keeping noise out all while being reasonably comfortable."
_
"They do pick-up background noise somewhat easily, but I've never had a problem with people not being able to clearly hear me."
_
"After get used to operate it seem perfect except static noise if little bit out of range"
_
"I record a podcast and have headphones on about 8 hours per day at work so things like comfort, sound quality and noise leak are all important, with the latter of the three being something I always avoid."
