Get what you pay for
Reasonably good headphones but not on the same level as the Bose in ear range, but nor is the price. Sound is great but one annoying thing I found was the seal needed create the bass is lost when running i.e. the section that goes into the ear canal pops out, making the sound full of treble. Have just ordered a pair of Bose SoundTrue Ultra In-Ear Headphones for Apple Devices (Charcoal for $90 which I expect will be three or four times better.
Good value for the Price, good sound quality. They sound AWESOME!
I bought these JBL Endurance Run earphones about a month ago for $29 (full price) at JB HiFI with a $10 discount that was about to expire. Before these I used the Sony MDR-EX15LP which I bought on Amazon, and miraculously lasted me a year and they were just amazing for the price (around $24 with shipping) and sound just as good.
I have the bluetooth versions of these also, and I liked the sound and I thought that the wired versions would be good as a version for home use while the bluetooth was for going on walks and to the gym.
For the price...of around $20 to $30 I would say these are great. I haven't had them for very long, but I enjoy them and I am happy I didn't have to break the bank for them. I listen to mostly Rock, some Hip Hop and Drum and Bass predominantly and they all sound great. I guess I would describe the sound quality as having a good punch and just brings out the best in a song for the price, but I do feel like it sometimes lacks in picking up certain instruments in parts of a song. Like some of the softer more quite tones just seem to be reduced but can still be heard. However, I love listening to music in these for sure. You also won't need to have the volume at max and give yourself a headache to enjoy the music either. They fit the ear perfectly and form a god seal. They don't feel to heavy or uncomfortable unlike the Bluetooth version of this, which is the complete opposite reaction. Not too sure how these will perform with walking and gym, but I think they should do fine.
Great sound quality, really comfy, durable
These are more comfortable than all in-ear earphones I've ever had so that's a massive plus. The sound quality also eclipses any others I've owned including some that were much more expensive.
The look is nice.
The only drawback is that the rubber cable makes a lot of cable noise while walking or moving around so these are better used when you are just sitting. It's also prone to tangling but that's normal for wired earphones so not really a particular issue.
Overall I like these better than any other in-ear based on comfort and sound quality.
- Verified purchase
Bought these JBL headphones few months back after having a bad run with really cheap headphones, then went for a $90 pair which lasted a month before sound started to crackle/cut in and out so with my refund I got these for $30! And I’m so glad I did.
Amazing clear sound, fit in my ears so well/never fall out, cord doesn’t tangle and I like the magnetic feature which makes headphone buds magnetically hold together when not in use. Really happy with this purchase, for $30 I think they are best on market in this price point.
