Better stay away
17 June 2019
This review is based on my previous experience with BOSE true sound, Sennheiser 275, audio technica m50s , couple of sony models and compared to all of that this is probably one of the worst. So in short better stay away. Details follow.
The sound is really warm and bass heavy. Bass is good for workout but not if it started overpowering the mid and lows. So if you are used to a good pair of earphones then you will not be satisfied. But yes it is quite loud. Did not need to cross 60% volume at all.
It is not noise isolating at all. It struggles to isolate any kind of gym music or noise. Although it is an in-ear it is not quite able to do the job at lower volume, loud volume will cover some of the noise.
That's the biggest issue with this pair of cans. The eartips doesnot stay put at all, forget workout, they keeps on falling down even when sitting in office. The main problem is the earbuds are quite heavy due to the mic and the bt adapter hanging from them on both sides. I am using my comply memory foam tips with them to make them bearable but keep in mind that is about 800 INR extra. And yes the reviews from some other users are true, they become very uncomfortable after few hours.
It is not bad. Getting around 4-5 hours of continuous use.
The one I got stopped working immediately, the microphone was faulty. Had it replaced from amazon (wanted refund but apparently that is not possible at all) but the new one is also not that great. So guess I am stuck with it.
My suggestion will be to avoid it. Probably that is the reason it is constantly on lightning deal. The details for this product is not listed in the JBL website. Probably something for the China market. Not at all justifiable at the cost.
