Audio

Audio:

_
"I have to minus one star because the originals broke, but the earphones have great audio quality and Jlab has good customer service."
_
"I have owned a lot of ear buds in my life and this is definitely the worst audio quality I had."
_
"Unfortunately that did not help the audio quality."
_
"After tolerating these for several weeks, however, and also running the burn in audio file offered on JLab site, the problem continued."
_
"As per my luck, however, the second pair turned out to be defective: there were spikes in the amplitude of the audio -- very audible; obviously something was very wrong."

"these headphones are awesome they are perfect match with my HTC Evo w beats audio."
_

Base

Base:
"Good headphones good base good mid but not great I would recommend this to anyone who's not a huge headphone head"
_
"It's not really good after I received and tried it, at first the sound is not really good, less base compare to the JVC HA-FR50B, the treble is OK, but the main reason I hate this because when I plug it in my ear, it's hurt me alot even I tried to change the rubber things comes with this earphone."
_
"Little disappointed: still discomfort with ear piece and sounds seemed deeper base type...not crystal clear as I expected."
_
"If you compare them side to side with the provided iPhone headphones, you'll immediately spot the problem, which is that the base of the jack is slightly further from the first segment."
_
"Great base sounds with clarity and the talk switch is easy to get to."
_
"Awsome earphones, awsome price, best price ever for good quality base sound perfect fit, microphone works good, good quality of craftmanship."
_
"Now I'm not a person for booming-drowning base, but I like to be able to pick the base player out from the rest of the band when listening."
_
"That being said the base is good."

Button

Button:
"The single push button for the controls is a bit confusing"
_
"At first, the microphone and control buttons both worked flawlessly, but only after a few weeks of use, the button started to fail."
_
"These are just fine as in ear style replacements to standard headset included with an iphone... My only complaint with these is that the Mic and play pause button module is a round cylinder so the button is hard to find by feel."
_
"I did not give all five stars because the button broke off after 2 days, but i personally don't even use the button anyway."
_
"I got a pair at the beginning of the month and by then end of the month, one headphone had stopped working and the one button click control was dead."
_
"Even if you can live without the volume up and down buttons (which it doesn't have) you'll still hate the stop start call button - it's featureless and round, hard to find, and hard to press."
_
"After some experimentation, I found that if you hold down the button on the mic for a few seconds, it sometimes clears up."
_
"The button works great on iPhone - 1 click=pause."
_
"Sounds pretty good..Mic and buttons dont work on android phones."

Cable

Cable:
"JLAB says they gave this a premium anti-tangle cord, but personally I'd describe it as a cheap piece of junk."
_
"The cord is incredibly stiff making it hard to straighten, and feels like it's coated in a hard, yet strangely sticky, plastic."
_
"broke after like 6 months but the cable does not get tangled."
_
"I would say some overall drawback to these headphones is the presence of some sound transfer from the cord scraping when exercising although I truly do not have too many issues with some slight adjustment."
_
"For anyone who complains about the noise from the cord banging against your chest, I think I found a solution."
_
"The cord does transmit sound, which would be more of a problem for me if I didn't run them between my t-shirt and over-shirt to avoid snagging them on a stair railing or other random protuberance (an issue with any corded headphone).The only con was that, after almost exactly a year of daily use, the sound in the left channel would crackle and go out if the cord near the plug was moved in any way."
_
"From the outside, they look like a sleek high quality design, good cable length, and in-line controls."
_
"The cable is strong feeling and reinforced nicely."
_
"Nice tangle-resistant cord."
_
"The heavy cord and microphone are nice and high quality, but the buds don't have anywhere near enough grip to support them... which renders them pretty unusable unless you are lying down."
_
"Also, in the black version (that's what i bought) the cord is clear smoke color...not the end of the world, but to me black is black."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I wanted something more comfortable than the crappy stock ones I had laying around, but, I wasn't about to spend a hundred or more $$ on a pair."
_
"While I find them to be more-or-less comfortable and capable, they do have a couple of significant drawbacks.1 - they don't pipe your voice into your ears."
_
"They are very, very comfortable, they don't fall out or feel uncomfortable after a long period of time, the packaging is awesome, they arrived in a perfect box with absolutely no problems."
_
"and others mp3'players and works fine .. but on my cellphone do not workbeside that .. have a great sound .. very comfortable and light ... i ride a bike .. and it do not bored me with the helm.."
_
"It's hard to find a comfortable fit with the stock tips, but that applies to basically any earbuds in this range; in fact, the included tips look identical to the tips included with my older Creative pair."
_
"The only (slight at that) problem I had with them is comfort."
_
"It comes with 3 sizes and I feel the small size gives a good comfortable seal in my ear."
_
"Love the comfort and that the earbuds don't fall out when I run."
_
"Quality is exceptional for the price and comfortable can be described similarly."
_
"The inline mic works great for receiving calls and they are very comfortable in my ears."
_
"I've also used them on long plane rides to watch movies, listen to in-flight entertainment, and they stay comfortable for a good long time."

Connector

Connector:
"So i had to use the nifty one year warranty from jlab and when i got my replacement headphones they worked like a charm for a few months for me but then head phones jack broke off inside of my iPod i don't know if this is common problem or not but i would recommend these headphones if you don't mind taking a risk."
_
"Then the jack broke and i thought here you go, another wasted purchase."
_
"The JLAB cover thing came off and now the clear exposed connector with wires looks bad and is kind of dissapointing."
_
"I assume there must be a problem with the connection inside the jack, but I have no way of confirming this."
_
"If you compare them side to side with the provided iPhone headphones, you'll immediately spot the problem, which is that the base of the jack is slightly further from the first segment."
_
"I reported the photo error of the audio jack to Amazon but my request was declined."
_
"All other parts (earpieces, controls mic, 3.5mm jack) are all made of pretty nice aluminum."
_
"com gp product B0071NK10I ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00 if you have a separate audio and mic jacks on your PC or laptop, and you'll be using the mic as well as the buds."
_
"To top it all off, they seem to be built very well, with a nice, thick cable and strong connectors."
_
"The microphone, jack, speakers and Y are housed in what seems to be a durable metal."
_
"The JLAB cover thing came off and now the clear exposed connector with wires looks bad and is kind of dissapointing."
_

Control

Control:
"The single push button for the controls is a bit confusing"
_
"My fault, when I bought these I thought there was a volume control and found that there is only a mic."
_
"I've heard of multiple problems with structure, but that seems to be more quality control and you can get them replaced easily."
_
"Only downside is not having the volume control like Apple's."
_
"I got a pair at the beginning of the month and by then end of the month, one headphone had stopped working and the one button click control was dead."
_
"JLab has the worst quality control I've ever seen in the electronics industry."
_
"All other parts (earpieces, controls mic, 3.5mm jack) are all made of pretty nice aluminum."
_
"From the outside, they look like a sleek high quality design, good cable length, and in-line controls."
_
"sad to get headphones with good sound but crapy quality control."
_
"It would be nice if these had a volume control on the remote and I'd really like a shorter plug or perhaps a 90 degree angle on the plug."
_
"I've heard of multiple problems with structure, but that seems to be more quality control and you can get them replaced easily."

Durability

Durability:
"I got those about a year a go, I was a bit weary about the durability as I saw a bunch of reviews that complained about that."
_
"I'll start with the elephant in the room, the durability problems, and get it out of the way."
_
"Attractiveness: The black ones look nice, all the other ones look like they're covered in cheap paint (I gave a few for Christmas).Durability: This is their biggest problem."
_
"I had few reservations before buying this J3M because of few complaints about the durability of the product but the breaking point is that, to put it straight I found the Customer service is simply amazing."
_
"The sound quality was decent and the form factor sleek, but the durability is awful."
_
"Compared to some other ear buds I've had they seem to be durable, but other reviewers have had issues with their durability."
_
"Besides the durability, what I liked most about the J3M was the design of the cabling."
_
"Good quality headphones that last, sound well, and are comfortable are hard to come by - and unfortunately the jlab earphones lack in the durability department."
_
"I have used several headphones with my Iphone, mostly in the 30$ price rang and I liked this one best so far in terms of the quality of sound and durability."

Durable

Durable:
"Two pair each with a broken headphone shows these are flawed and not durable."
_
"These head phones are by far one of the best for Ipods, and the fact that you can use them with a cell phone makes it well worth the price, the sounds is terrific, and the material they are made of is very durable, the wire is very hard to tangle do to the film on the outside, I would suggest this for anyone that will be using an Ipod and a phone, or an Iphone."
_
"I was in to trying them because i always liked their cheaper non-microphone headphones (even though those suffered from the malfunctioning earbud as well), but they seemed durable."
_
"These earphones come with a very rigid cord that I thought it was good and durable, but it does not bend too easy and when it rubs against your clothes you can hear it amplified."
_
"They are not only designed well and pretty durable, they have sound quality that matches the big dogs."
_
"These have great sound and are very durable."
_
"Compared to some other ear buds I've had they seem to be durable, but other reviewers have had issues with their durability."
_
"Pros:Soft, interchangeable tips so that you can find the right fit for youDurablePortableNoise cancelling if youDecent mic for SkypeDecent soundConsSound is a bit tinny unless you have them pushed well into your earsAll in all, I'm very happy with these and would recommend them to someone looking for something of reasonably good quality, excellent portability and fairly durable."
_
"I needed something that was comfortable, durable, had decent audio quality."
_
"Love the sound, very comfortable, super durable (closed them in my car door a few times and not a scuff) and the price is great."

Fit

Fit:
"The fittings, I like that they came with adjustable sizes, but unfortunately they kept slipping out of my ears and because its got a metal tip it actually hurt the inside of my ear where they fit in."
_
"Ear buds don't work well for me during workouts (I'm a runner) because even the best fit will slip when you're sweaty."
_
"I've used the Apple earbuds which have a good controller but I hate the fit and sound quality, so I upgraded to Sennheiser in ear buds with microphone, which are unfortunately poorly made and break (or just stop working for no reason) far too frequently."
_
"I found myself always having to adjust them to fit, sometimes having to angle them at a weird angle just to keep them in, resulting in an uncomfortable experience."
_
"But the worst part, for me, is that they just don't fit my ears."
_
"Speaking of this, if they are falling out, you probably have the wrong size fitting on the end of the headphone."
_
"Best earphones for me, good sound, good looks, fits great in the ear, but does not last.."
_
"They fit nicely and comfortably in my ears with no discomfort or bulky feel."
_
"I love that the ear bud sizes really fit!"
_
"Fits well in the ear, though this could be better."
_
"Bought my first pair in 2011, loved the fit (most ear buds don't fit my ears very well) and the quality of the sound."

Listening

Listening:
"The headphones were good for listening to music, but awful for telephone calls because of the terrible microphone."
_
"My only problem I had was when listening to songs with a lot of bass, I would get some static, or when I would jog and they would hit against me."
_
"The sound quality is good when listening to music and audiobooks, however I have not been able to get the microphone to work."
_
"Not good for moving and listening at the same time."
_
"Bottom line: nice ear buds for listening to music but not good for multi-use mobile phones."
_
"Due to that fact, there are three very annoying side-effects:1) They hurt2) The earpieces will fall out of your ears after a while if you don't re-adjust them3) A true seal in your ear is impossibleSound quality (Second to the Campbell's chicken noodle headphones):If you like listening through tin cans, then you will love these but I am not one of those people."
_
"It sounds great for listening."
_
"comfortable enough to sleep in while listening to music, or without ."
_
"The sound is very good, the fit is good as well so for just listening to music this would be fine."
_
"The headphones were good for listening to music, but awful for telephone calls because of the terrible microphone."

Loud

Loud:
"I do not listen to loud music so this was extremely frustrating.4."
_
"It works fine in a quiet room, but not great in a loud airport."
_
"even with large tip, it still doesn't cancel sound very well unless volume is really loud - also uncomfortable."
_
"Whether at the gym, the metro, airport, or at a crowded cafe with loud patrons, I have to say that this product really does a remarkable job tuning out environmental noise."
_
"I should mention I go to bed with them so that should tell you how comfortable they are....because SOME people SNORE really LOUD! "
_
"I usually don't have to turn these up too loud and I don't have problems disturbing others."
_
"The sound quality is very good; my music and phone calls come through loud & clear."
_
"even with large tip, it still doesn't cancel sound very well unless volume is really loud - also uncomfortable."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Always had complaints about my mic."
_
"i was disappointed because i thought that while you are paying more because the mic they have, it should include the case to save them"
_
"The mic is also very weak."
_
"Don't get me wrong, Jlab is making the most comfortable earbuds around and I have a set without mic that I adore."
_
"Problem is that the earbud that has the inline mic has much lower volume (barely works), compared to the earbud that splits out on its own, so I've ended up adding a clip from another old mic to the side with the mic so I can clip it closer to my mouth and just using the other earbud."
_
"The only minor complaint that I have with these headphones, however, is the microphone."
_
"All other parts (earpieces, controls mic, 3.5mm jack) are all made of pretty nice aluminum."
_
"Great sound and the mic delivers crystal clear hands free operation."
_
"Sound quality, mic, and the lot all work great, still."
_
"The inline mic, while not being as stellar as my more expensive units, I don't usually have complaints from my students, though I often have to hold the mic up near my mouth when teaching."
_
"Sound and Mic work very well for the price."

Music

Music:
"May be okay for some types of music, but not very good for watching movies - makes dialogue sound weird."
_
"I have previously purchased the klipsch image s4i so I immediately noticed that when I listen to music, the vocals are not as clear as the s4i."
_
"Not only that, but if you wear these while you're moving (and let's be honest, who sits dead still to listen to music?"
_
"Its not like I'm blasting my music or anything but they are dead now."
_
"I do not listen to loud music so this was extremely frustrating.4."
_
"The headphones were good for listening to music, but awful for telephone calls because of the terrible microphone."
_
"I couldn't find the problem because as I nodded my head to the music, it will cut in and out."
_
"So if you have beats or high music sound please join me cause these make music sound the way it's suppose to hear it."
_
"I listen exclusively to bass-heavy, techno music with pleasure."
_
"Calls are clear, mic is clear, music fidelity just average, comfort ok."

Noise

Noise:
"Cons: The mic cancels out street noise pretty well, but wind can be a problem -- but I should probably stop taking phone calls in a wind tunnelOne last note: I don't typically use these for working out, although I have in a pinch."
_
"The cord is made of a smooth material so it doesn't generate noise when it moves over your clothing - I have had other brands that do make noise and it's annoying."
_
"For anyone who complains about the noise from the cord banging against your chest, I think I found a solution."
_
"Even the mic sound quality isn't that great and there is too much noise if you are out."
_
"My kids will often times watch cartoons and I like to plug in my ear phones to the computer to watch my movies or videos while they are watching theirs, often times the background noise from the cartoons makes it frustrating to listen to my music or movies, with these ear buds there is absolutely NO background noise that you can hear."
_
"The microphone is messed up people can't hear me just about all the time, also when the mic is touched sometimes the volume will turn all the way up which hurts and gets very annoying this also happens if there's a louder noise nearby."
_
"The sound quality of these is pretty good, consistent with other Jlab headphones with noise isolation."
_
"Whether at the gym, the metro, airport, or at a crowded cafe with loud patrons, I have to say that this product really does a remarkable job tuning out environmental noise."
_
"The sound quality is amazing and for little buds they really do cancel out noise, so much so that I have to be careful on my walks to only wear ond bud so I can hear the boogie man in case he sneaks up on me."
_
"I have also worn them to bed several times to listen to white noise and drown out outside noise and had no problem falling asleep with them in."

Packaging

Packaging:
"They send them in a box that says certified frustration free packaging."
_
"They are very, very comfortable, they don't fall out or feel uncomfortable after a long period of time, the packaging is awesome, they arrived in a perfect box with absolutely no problems."
_
"I got the replacement pair (and case) in about two days...and promptly discovered that the left earbud was completely dead out of the package."
_
"Arrived quickly and packaged well."
_
"Supposedly you need to let these burn in for awhile, but right out the package I love them."
_
"The headphones fit very nicely right out of the package with the installed silicone ear buds, but the fact that three other sizes were included in the package was a very nice touch."
_
"They sounded great right out of the package as well."

Performance

Performance:
"My disappointment, however, stems from their performance as a hands-free headset."
_
"The headphones perform excellently with bass but not as well for higher sounds."
_
"Anybody that reviews this and says the bass or lows highs do not perform well, it must be their player or they do not have them on right."
_
"Most of the reviews go into much technical detail regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the J3M earphones - which at times says as much about the purchasers tastes, use and audio appreciation than the performance of the earphones."
_
"I give these headphones a great review because they perform well for the price I paid."
_
"I will perform the burn in procedure recommended in the instructions."
_
"I bought one set of these and performed the recommended 24 hour burn-in."
_
"I don't know how this company could go from a comfortable headphone with good sound to ones that cost more money and perform in a much inferior manner."

Plastic

Plastic:
"I did that, and when I went to unplug the earbuds from the audio source, the plastic sheath over the plug broke away from the metal plug and the unit remained connected to the audio source."
_
"There is a white clear plastic over the wires and it makes the black look funny."
_
"the wires are encased in plastic so it's far more durable than regular earbuds in theory."
_
"The cord was nice and tangle-resistant and there is a generous ratio of metal to plastic in their construction, which is rare to find in a good, affordable set of earbuds."
_
"I'd ordered a set of these as a replacement for the Apple earbuds with remote mike, thinking they would be more comfortable than the hard white plastic."
_
"Built with metal instead of plastic these are perfect for the user who wants a durable set of great headphones."

_
"They sounded great but even after changing the ear plugs were uncomfortable."
_
"Doesn't matter how good they sound when you can't keep the plug in one piece, does it?"
_
"I did that, and when I went to unplug the earbuds from the audio source, the plastic sheath over the plug broke away from the metal plug and the unit remained connected to the audio source."
_
"Plug is well designed and fits in your iPhone and is not impeded by my case or bumper."
_
"These earbuds had excellent sound; however, the conductor and plug were of such low quality that with one light tug, they were gone."
_
"Unless JLab has significantly improved the quality of the materials (the plug and wire), I would stay clear of these."
_
"The Good: great sound and range and several sizes of ear plugs are included for a good fit."

"JLAB says they gave this a premium anti-tangle cord, but personally I'd describe it as a cheap piece of junk."
_
"Without question it's the best for the money...a steal really."

"On a side note, for over-the-ear cans for the same price, you don't seem to be able to be the Sennheiser HD 202 II Professional Headphones (Black)"
_
"I bought it thinking that it was a good deal.. but it turned out that it broke faster than cheap skullcandy or other earphones."

"I say it again... DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLERI am very frustrated and it feels like I just wasted my money and time."

"the Driver is so small that I'd rather not have the microphone and use my sennheiser mx-85's with a 13-mm driver, I'm gonna return and go for the woodies, they have better sound reviews, and the fit on these J-buds is weak, I didn't even swap out all the rubber pieces I could tell by the size of them they were gonna fall out and the sound was gonna be poor because of the size of the driver."
_
"My complaint with these headphones probably comes down to the type of rubber plastic used in the cord and the ear plugs."
_
"If you get them in at the wrong angle, then the rubber can push back against the screen covering the speaker, and you'll get horrible clipping and buzzing until you readjust them."
_
"The four sets of rubber buds are great for a snug fit in the ear."
_
"I also love that they don't use a sticky rubber coating on the wires like my others."
_
"The sound quality of these ear buds is great and they come with different sizes of rubber thingys that ensure you will get a secure, comfortable fit in your ear."
_
"The sound is great but my only issue is the rubber earpieces needs to be silicone."
_
"The rubber that the earbuds are made of is soft and very comfortable, if you are able to find your size then perfect, if not then you are SOL."

Service

Service:
"Not only do I love the quality of these headphones, but JLAB's customer service is also spectacular."
_
"Overall I am very dissatisfied with the service and would not recommend it as a good buy."
_
"These buds are especially reasonable because JBud's customer service will replace any broken buds, free of charges, and without you needed to pay for shipping."
_
"I highly commend this company for their excellent customer service, something that is becoming increasingly hard to come by."
_
"I don't care if they have good customer service or if some of their products work, I just wasted my time and effort by ordering these."
_
"The customer service is not the best either."
_
"Excellent sound, comfortable fit, and great customer service."
_
"Can someone in customer service please contact me to help me resolve this?"
_
"These buds are especially reasonable because JBud's customer service will replace any broken buds, free of charges, and without you needed to pay for shipping."
_
"Where they earn their five stars is their consistent and easy to use customer service."
_
"On a bright side, JLab's customer service was phenomenal!"

Size

Size:
"The fittings, I like that they came with adjustable sizes, but unfortunately they kept slipping out of my ears and because its got a metal tip it actually hurt the inside of my ear where they fit in."
_
"I tried the ear bud sizes that they sent and I have the same problem each time."
_
"The range of earbud sizes is a plus but the lack of a case the negative."
_
"If I use the medium size on both, I don't get a good fit in my left ear and it has a tendency to fall out."
_
"Speaking of this, if they are falling out, you probably have the wrong size fitting on the end of the headphone."
_
"Though the price is relatively lofty, and the carrying case is nice but not too practical (kinda small hard to fit the earphones in), you definitely get a good amount of bang for your buck."
_
"It comes with 3 sizes and I feel the small size gives a good comfortable seal in my ear."
_
"I love that the ear bud sizes really fit!"
_
"The headphones fit very nicely right out of the package with the installed silicone ear buds, but the fact that three other sizes were included in the package was a very nice touch."

Sound

Sound:
"Sound quality was good though until it broke on the right side."
_
"These are poor quality & uncomfortable, but the sound is quite good when they are working."
_
"Each of my four pairs have broken down exactly within that time frame (i. e., sound suddenly blows out in both ears or one ear; choppy, static interference perhaps due to wire deterioration)."
_
"May be okay for some types of music, but not very good for watching movies - makes dialogue sound weird."
_
"This item I bought for my Iphone most of the time im leasting to music and i need to answer the phone the ears hear great on calls the problem i got is when im making exercise and i pumit up it sounds if they were going to blow and i dont like it"
_
"I'll bet that 99% of the people who complained about poor sound quality DID NOT BURN THEM IN BEFORE USING THEM."
_
"Not a sound fanatic, but these sound good."
_
"They also sound great."
_
"Excellent sound."
_
"Very good range of sound."

Speaker

Speaker:
"I liked this earbuds, but after a while (long time period but light use) both speakers detached from the shells containing them, then the wires broke, game over."
_
"After reading about similar incidents it's beginning to lead me to the conclusion that while these earbuds LOOK very sturdy, under the surface there must be some weak connections or cheap speakers."
_
"A speaker has broken on each of my previous three."
_
"My only disappointment is that the speaker stopped working only four months in and I had to go a week or so without decent sound (even if it was a free replacement).UPDATE: I'm now on my fourth pair of the headphones."
_
"- The first pair I received broke on the second day (the earbud speaker separated from the plastic cone casing, disconnecting the wire)."
_
"If you get them in at the wrong angle, then the rubber can push back against the screen covering the speaker, and you'll get horrible clipping and buzzing until you readjust them."
_
"When I called my parents to test them from my nice quiet apartment, they said the speaker was very sensitive."
_
"That so many people think that the Apple iPod OEM earbud speakers are so bad and that these JLab speakers are so good, it makes me think that an individual examining these reviews won't know what to think."
_
"The microphone, jack, speakers and Y are housed in what seems to be a durable metal."
_
"I could say I am a borderline audiophile, so I have had a decent number of earbuds headphones speakers."

Value

Value:
"Great Value and price."

_
"So overall: a great value."

Voice

Voice:
"While I find them to be more-or-less comfortable and capable, they do have a couple of significant drawbacks.1 - they don't pipe your voice into your ears."
_
"The problem is that the listener can't hear me very well and my voice seems to be amplified back into my ears."
_
"- The microphone did not do a good job of picking up my voice."
_
"I use it with my iPhone 3GS but callers complain about not being able to hear me, my voice would start fading away as I speak to a point were they'd ask tell me to stop mumbling!"
_
"Some people were complaining about not hearing their voice when they are talking if they plug both of their ears."
_
"They seal so well, it is hard to hear your own voice."
_
"The voice is very clear."
_
"Others said my voice was clear."
_
"There has been only one time that I tried, and was able to hear my heartbeat, but not any voice commands."
_
"I mean, they can't compare with my Sony MDR-V6 Monitor Series Headphones with CCAW Voice Coil but they are very good for the price."
_
"They seal so well, it is hard to hear your own voice."

Warranty

Warranty:
"Their customer service and solid warranty made the replacement of my earphones very low hassle, and dare I say a pleasant experience."
_
"Despite their initial quality the problems began to arise after the warranty expired."
_
"I had even registered my earphones at their website but am unable to file a warranty claim because their website keeps redirecting me to a wrong url."
_
"Very nice earphone, but every 2 monthes it doesn't work already replaced 3times andtired to request warranty :(I don't know why they make this earphone weak."
_
"It's going to be a hassle to get it fixed with the warranty, but at least they offer free replacement."
_
"My biggest complaint, they stopped working shortly after the warranty."
_
"--Generous, swift, and easy warranty."
_
"The return process under warranty is totally easy and FAST."
_
"JLab is very good with their warranty process."
_
"The warranty is superb and easily sends a replacement pair, but the quality of these headphones is quite poor."
_
"Now it was bothering me a bit that the sound kept going out so quickly, but I didn't complain too much because their warranty was fantastic."

iPhone

iPhone:
"If you're looking for an upgrade from Apples uncomfortable and poorly performing default headphones for the iPhone or you want to add microphone capability to your iPod touch, but you don't want to spend hundreds on offerings from marquis brand companies, then I highly recommend this product."
_
"I am not sure if it was just that I got a defective pair or that they don't work well with an Iphone 4 but they did that clicking."
_
"tried to use these on my iphone and there was always this weird clicking distorted sound in the background."
_
"These are just fine as in ear style replacements to standard headset included with an iphone... My only complaint with these is that the Mic and play pause button module is a round cylinder so the button is hard to find by feel."
_
"Callers complain about bad sound and they create a humming when the iPhone is connected to the charger."
_
"Isn't Apple too greedy not to ship a decent earphone with their iphone and iTouch?"
_
"Plug is well designed and fits in your iPhone and is not impeded by my case or bumper."
_
"After being pretty dissatisfied with the stock Apple ear buds that came with my iPhone, I looked for a replacement, and the combination of decent reviews and reasonable price made the J3Ms the best value."
_
"The mic on the iPhone earphone was pretty bad so what the heck right?"
_
"I have used several headphones with my Iphone, mostly in the 30$ price rang and I liked this one best so far in terms of the quality of sound and durability."
_
"I bought this set of headphones for the purpose of listening on an iPhone 4, after using the lowest level Jbuds with some satisfaction before."

iPod

iPod:
"So i had to use the nifty one year warranty from jlab and when i got my replacement headphones they worked like a charm for a few months for me but then head phones jack broke off inside of my iPod i don't know if this is common problem or not but i would recommend these headphones if you don't mind taking a risk."
_
"Try not to pull on the earbuds or wrap them around your ipod mp3 because the wires in the buds will become weak."
_
"I intended to use new ear buds mostly with iPhones and iPods but none of Apple's terrible EQ presets are helping me (if only the Bass Reducer preset was a little less aggressive).On the positive side, the J3Ms are very attractive and they include four sizes of ear fittings to help cater to everyone."
_
"However, after less than two weeks of buying it, the cable part where it connects to the ipod was having problems already, causing one of the ears to go out."
_
"Not even as good as the Apple headphones that come with your iPods."
_
"They are superior to the included earphones with the Apple iPod, but also to a pair of Skull Candy buds I purchased in a pinch."
_
"In my Ipod touch 4th Gen they sound great & work great for skype (volume usually @ half)."
_
"These head phones are by far one of the best for Ipods, and the fact that you can use them with a cell phone makes it well worth the price, the sounds is terrific, and the material they are made of is very durable, the wire is very hard to tangle do to the film on the outside, I would suggest this for anyone that will be using an Ipod and a phone, or an Iphone."
_
"I use the ear-buds on my iPod Touch, and my Motorola Backflp and both work perfect with it, as do the controls (pause, answer, hang-up, skip song, etc)."
_
"The microphone and iPod controls are just a nice bonus."
