Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The tangle-prone cord is an annoyance I could get over, but why bother when the sound is so mediocre?"
_
"I have found that whenever I wear these while walking I need to use the shirt clip or else the noise of the cord rubbing against my shirt becomes annoying."
_
"Practicality (that is, how suitable are these for people like me): 3 5Unfortunately, the cord transfers *a lot* of the bumps, etc., that occur within a day's use."
_
"The reason they don't get a full five stars, though, is the fault of a major, almost debilitating facet:The cord transfers too much noise of the bumping and thumping associated with said cord doing said B&T;'ing against my body."
_
"They made the cord shorter and didn't fit as well as the previous."
_
"Cord transmission of noise is a problem due to the fairly stiff wire, but a small clip, like the one supplied with the J-4s fixes that."
_
"They work great, but you do get alot of cord noise if you are moving around."
_
"I liked the breaded cord."
_
"When i run theres no loud banging of the cord against my back, which makes me feel even more comfortable during the run."
_
"The cord is also pretty cool looking (metallic braid) yet light and flexible (maybe even more-so? )"
_
"The bass is fantastic and the cable is of a nice, anti-tangle design."

Fit

Fit:
"I have very small ear canals and these do fit but are uncomfortable after about 15 mins even with the smallest flange."
_
"They made the cord shorter and didn't fit as well as the previous."
_
"The miniplug connector is straight (not 90) so it may not be the best for some uses, but it is very lightweight and has a very small diameter so it would fit through small openings easier than 90 models."
_
"And when I did manage to get a good fit, the sound quality was a bit disappointing on the J2s."
_
"Anyone who complains about the Bass in these headphones really should try out the different size tips, the ones that came with it didn't sound that good to me but once I found the ones that fit best (large) the Bass and sound quality was outstanding."
_
"fit nicely, sound good."
_
"Pros: inexpensive, colorful, comfortable fit inside ears, reasonable sound for the priceCons: cheaper construction, wires can break, some people have a tin-y sound on songs,Bought these for my son to wear while doing things around the house."

Listening

Listening:
"I like the J4 for doing yard work or heavy chores but they seem almost too heavy duty and not as comfortable for gym use or casual listening."
_
"After three months of use, a wire has broken near the plug; when I'm listening to music and walking, channels keep cutting in and out."
_
"I've never been shocked by a pair of headphones before, (or shocked in the ear before), but it makes for a very unpleasant listening experience..."
_
"Cons- I lost them and regret that I did so...Conclusion- I love them and recommend them to anyone who wants a great listening experience! "
_
"These headphones had great lows, decent highs and an overall great tone for various genres of listening."
_
"I just got them and have not even broken them in with the 24 hour listening period yet and there is a world of difference in sound quality compared to the panasonic earbuds i got for 8 dollars."
_
"Of course, this earphone cannot compare to Beats By Dr. Dre - Studio Over-the-Ear Headphones From Monster - Blue, but it is good for daily use when you are walking to campus or listening to music in your dorm quietly."
_
"Sound quality is great, but you must play them in (JLabs advise at least 24 hours continuous play at high volume).I prefer the iPod supplied earphones when I want to be able to listen to sounds around me at the same time as listening to music, but the J3's are the best when you want to mute out the outside world and the are superbly comfortable and they don't fall out."

Music

Music:
"I bought these earbuds to see if they would be a decent alternative to listen to music while travelling by plane, but I found them to be somewhat hard to keep in place."
_
"After three months of use, a wire has broken near the plug; when I'm listening to music and walking, channels keep cutting in and out."
_
"Not only that but the piece is very durable, which i like to sleep hearing music and the earphones has not ripped over the 6 months of constant use."
_
"Music: I guess my ears just aren't tuned well enough to know what people are talking about when they say earphones are too tinny or do not have not enough bass."
_
"Break them in for 10 hours with music with decent range of sound on repeat."
_
"Or, you can listen to different types of music for awhile, not at full volume, for a decent break-in."
_
"I bought these earbuds to see if they would be a decent alternative to listen to music while travelling by plane, but I found them to be somewhat hard to keep in place."

_
"These are great for me I do listen to music but mostly I am using them to watch movies and the sound is awesome the fit great thanks for the price"

Noise:

_
"It didn't matter, both of them regardless of handling and amount of use stopped working right at about 1yr and 1 month of owning them in 2014.They do have a good noise isolating feature thanks to the size and material used for the ear piece."
_
"i have 2 jbuds 2 back in 2006. both of them do a good job of blocking out noise when i am on a long flight across the pacific."
_
"These earphones are first off really cool looking, they come in a nice case, they have great sound quality, they are very clear and comfortable, they also block out most background noise, i recommend these!"
_
"Considering I've picked up two pairs of these headphones at the insane price of $10 from Amazon, I felt obligated to come and leave a review for the headphones, because they are easily as good as my $100 over-ear headphones (when comparing them without noise cancelling, that is - noise cancelling definitely makes a huge difference in many situations)."
