JayBird JB-100 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

 

The category of stereo Bluetooth earbuds is still growing, so it's nice to see a newcomer to the market focusing on just that. JayBird debuted in 2007 with the JB-100 headset, a compact stereo earbud set, as well as complementing adapters for the iPod...

The JayBird JB-100 Bluetooth Stereo Headset offers a low-profile design and clear audio response. Bluetooth pairing is easy, and dropouts are infrequent.

The JayBird JB-100 Bluetooth Stereo Headset won't fit all users, and it's lacking in bass response. Volume is limited.

The JayBird JB-100 Bluetooth Stereo Headset is a reasonable choice for users who want wireless music without the bulk, but bass addicts should look elsewhere.

Comfortable to wear

Even following the booklet indications, they never fit right in my ears

JayBird JB-100 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

 

Not worth the money. I have given them a shot for 6 months now and I still do not like the way they fit and I am losing a lot of volume and bass levels precisely because they are fitting right. Don't get them.

Comfortable to wear

Even following the booklet indications, they never fit right in my ears

"must be within 2 feet of transmitter"

 

If the headphones are farther away than two feet from your music transmitter then the sound cuts out very often. It doesn't say this anywhere in any reviews or product specs but it is on the second page of the manual once you receive the product. For...

nifty idea and they look cool

The headphones must be within 2 feet (ie. elbow or above) to receive decent stereo sound.

Consumer review by:

"Not worth it"

 

While a relatively good idea, it's just not there. The earbuds are terrible, don't stay in, and aren't ergonomically shaped at all. Fancy packaging and charging station don't make up for poorly thought out features.

Lightweight

Low volume, uncomfortable, do not fit well. Not able to configure which ear the telephone audio uses.

"Overpriced, Quiet, Weak Bluetooth , Weird Fit, etc...."

 

I"m writing this review because I really have to say I"m extremely angered and dissapointed at the overall lack of effort that went into the hardware design of this product. They are obviously not only using 2nd rate hardware, but also using 2nd...

Honestly the only Pro I can give this product is that its a good idea that is very very poorly executed.

Poor Bluetooth Dongle Signal

Consumer review by:

not as good as the advert, bad customer service

 

bad customer service is what prompted me to write this review. In this day and age when a product breaks down within a few days it seems reasonable that the company will send a pre paid envelope to teh customer to have it returned. this company places...

looks cool, great for mobile phone but not for itouch

Unit does not work with itouch to make calls via skype. controls very small and fiddly. sound quality tolerable. does not work with itouch below elbow height. customer has to pay all shipping costs to return faulty unit. mine broke in two days

Good idea. Not a good product yet.

 

Pretty cool website and slick packaging but product has some drawbacks. I bought the Jaybird with the iPod adapter. BIGGEST DRAWBACK - TO USE FOR STEREO PLAYBACK IT IS RECOMMENDED TO BE WITHIN 2 FEET OF THE TRANSMITTER. This is not an a conservative...

Light weight. Nice packaging. Good documentation

Poor fit. Terrible sound. Worse bluetooth connectivity

Buyer beware

 

Stay away. neither product nor company can deliver what's promised.

indoors it gives decent, but not great sound

Outdoors inacceptable quality (music seems to "speed up" and "slow down ; Company is unorganized (first sent wrong item, then no refund, even so I send it back per their instructions and with RMA#, package "got lost" in factory)
