Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"For 35$ you get DECENT quality audio, not the best, no bass, but good audio."
_
"the audio is good and the range is good as well, it work great for workout even with all the sweating, also charges good, it will last at least a couple days."
_
"While the audio quality was excellent, the set was too small to fit the girth of my head."
_
"distance wise, it's not too bad considering I left my phone in the opposite end and went into the end of the bathroom (about 20-30ft distance in between) and then it decided to cut in and out (more accurately, it cut out about once every 2 minutes and if I moved around)overall for these being lightweight and great audio quality, I feel these are worth the buy :)will probably update later when I see any drastic changesBTW, register these online as soon as you get them :>"
_
"One thing I will say, is that Jlab Audio's Customer Service is amazing."
_
"Sound when streaming audio is terrific."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"My only complaint is that when I have the bluetooth connected to my phone for stuff streaming internet, connection goes in and out from time to time and there is a lot of rebuffering that only happens when I have the bluetooth on."
_
"Here's what I didn't:Bluetooth - great if your phone and the headphones are basically in line of sight - if you put your phone in your front pocket, or anywhere on the opposite side of your body that the rear of the headphones aren't in line with your phone - it cuts out repeatedly."
_
"Disappointed that my favorite brand doesn't have a good Bluetooth device for sport activity."

Charging

Charging:
"One was dead on arrival (DOA) and would not charge."
_
"They then sent an upgraded model and after three days of use they wouldn't power up at all,even with a full charge indication (also a common problem according to the other reviews)."
_
"Unfortunately, I have the same issues about not charging and not pairing."
_
"Like many reviews I really liked these whole they worked...3 months of ownership and they are dead won't charge regardless of how long I leave it plugged I."
_
"The rubber pad that protects the charging port from sweat is flimsy and refuses to push in all the way."
_
"Only problem is that the rubber dongle that protects the charging slot doesn't fit back into it after use, and the wiring along one side is already falling out of the channel [going from ear nob up to battery sending unit], so I have to bogusly have to tape it back it every few weeks."
_
"I then tell myself, Well, perhaps I need to charge it more."
_
"Love these for bike riding and exerciseing no cord to deal with battery stays charge for nice period of time so you can get the grass cut as well"
_
"Bought a cpl mths ago..still kickin...none of the lights work n it anymore..i just charge after 5 hrs of continuous use for about an hour and good for a few more hrs"
_
"Charging takes about 1 hour and lasts a good 8-9 hours continuous play."
_
"I use them every day for work and play, they hold an excellent charge."
