Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Only thing missing is a battery indicator, the power & pair button only lights up steady red when the battery is low, no information in between."
_
"Those are great headphones with good sound and great battery life."
_
"So I told myself that I'd be waiting until black friday...Luckily come black friday I found a link from a reviewer in youtube for this JBL E50BT and it only costs $99.Seller was pretty quick to deliver despite saying that it would be delayed so kudos to Fast Ship:So here is my quick review:Pros:-Battery life is ok as I was able to use it for 3 hours a day and was able to finish season 6 of Walking dead in one charging-Intuitive pairingCons:-Sound quality was good, I first played Laidback Luke and Steve Aoki's Turbulence to check it out and was a bit looking for more umpf-I have a small ear but still got my ears sore after 3 hours of continuous use."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"Unable to turn off or disconnect from bluetooth"
_
"* except when on a PC because the Windows Bluetooth stack sounds crappy even under Win8.1."
_
"Another Bluetooth stack fixes this problem, some laptops with integrated Bluetooth or USB Bluetooth adapters come with one (Widcomm or CSR Harmony).EDIT (07 2015): I found one thing I don't like about them, which seems to be a bug in the software of the headphones: When the battery charge is low, you hear a boop boop sound and then you can use them for another hour or so."
_
"They sound okay bluetooth wise but not Spectacular."
_
"That being said, I am just an average person attempting to find a decent enough pair of bluetooth headphones that would deliver a crisp sound, not having me reach for my charger every chance I get, at a price that doesn't force me to take out further loans, and perhaps look somewhat sleek, though that last one is a bit arbitrary."
_
"I have a very good and expensive Bluetooth transmitter hooked up to my tv and it would not work."
_
"Bluetooth works flawlessly and the sound quality is very good."
_
"Was loving these headphones... comfortable, great sound, and the Bluetooth capabilities were very convenient."
_
"With sounds that I can only describe as angelic, these headphones deliver the best in class sound for over-ear Bluetooth headphones that I've come across."

Cable

Cable:
"My main complaint is that the headphones use a proprietary charging cable, and JBL cannot supply extras!"
_
"However 2.5mm cable was missing."
_
"I looked on the net to see if I could find a replacement proprietary JBL charging cable in case the one supplied became damaged."
_
"The one drawback is that it has a unique charging cable so if you lose it you're out of luck"
_
"But for the price and the absolute freedom from that annoying cord, I will buy this again and again."
_
"Received the first one and sound from one ear was bad so I requested a replacement and that was missing a charging cord"
_
"The cord to plug them for wired mode is nice, though bluetooth technology has come so far I can hardly hear a difference between wired and wireless."
_
"They sound great, are rugged and have an option for a cord if needed."
_
"The sound quality is on par with the better devices I've owned, the wireless is great and the inclusion of a cable for situations where bluetooth is not available is a huge plus."
_
"These Speakers are great, having bluetooth, with mic, and cord available option is awesome."

_

Connection

Connection:
"This can be annoying when you leave them connected overnight."
_
"My Pros and Cons:Pros:Affordable Bluetooth headphonesStylish designComfortable and seem sturdySound is fairly balanced - midrange a little weak IMONo real problems pairing 2 android devicesCons:Bluetooth connection may not be true stereoVolume Output limitedNot bad sound but not worth the current price premiumVolume output is limitedUpdate 12 10 14:I wound up returning the E50BTs and ordering a pair of the JBL E40BT White High-Performance Wireless On-Ear Bluetooth Stereo Headphone, White, which my first instinct was to buy in the first place."
_
"Of course it's still early in the stages of testing and I haven't let this fully burn-in yet (albeit I remain somewhat skeptical to this phenomenon - at least in terms that my ears can hear and that my brain can remember) but even if the sound profile were to improve, some of the con's I mentioned like the weird bluetooth connection and especially that rattle will lead me on the path to returning these."
_
"The manual isnt clear, but whenever the headphones are powered but not connected to a device they automatically go into paring mode."
_
"it connects great, I have no issues with the Bluetooth connection."
_
"Really impressed with the Bluetooth connection distance as well"

Fit

Fit:
"My only complaint is that they don't fit my ears (pretty normal size) very well."
_
"In addition, i do NOT have large ears, yet neither over-ear ear cup on these JBL's fit over my ears - the right one is almost painful to wear after only a few minutes, and no adjustment corrects the problem."
_
"But, as my wife tells me, I have a big head, and they fit well."
_
"Fits comfortably"
_
"Comfortable fit and great color, but wasn't as loud as Beats or as good a sound!"
_
"They were comfortable and fit around the ear nicely."

_
"I have been using since last month though compare its price its sound quality is not that great."
_
"Not the best sound quality but for sure passable."
_
"Now, if you really insist, I can tell you that by buying the JBL E50 you do not get much more than what you get with the E40 (see my review of them), just a bigger JBL Logo and at least a bit of bass, of mediocre quality."
_
"The sound quality is great."
_
"The first one was a free pair I get at a conference, and the sound quality was pretty bad, so I figured I'd upgrade to something nicer."

"Sound was okay but they are too heavy and not very comfortable."
_
"Head phones not as good as I thought keep breaking up sound just okay"
_
"I have been using since last month though compare its price its sound quality is not that great."
_
"As for the sound, they sound alright, just not great like I expected."
_
"great sound, but pressure a bit hard on the ears after prolonged use."
_
"I will say though that with just a flat setting on my phone's audio (I am horrible with equalizers, so I tend to avoid them), those lows and highs are very much emphasised in volume, but sometimes you don't notice how loud they are because if you listen to a vocal track, and especially how clear it sounds on these, it's all you focus on."
_
"I will say, however, that while sound isolation is decent (no dedicated active noise cancelling here), there is a greater amount of sound leakage than I expected."
_
"The sound quality is great."

Speaker

_
"You also get the same light fit with the lower part of the speakers not pressing well against your ears."
_
"The earpads are also not deep enough, so my ears press against the speaker portion as well."
_
"I got them because I have JBL speakers at home and love them too."
_
"This is not a problem specific to these headphones, this applies to every BT speaker & heaphone."
_
"Therefore, I started to search for a new one with a good material until I found this speaker."
_
"I love speakers, always have, and these are my new favorite sound gear."
