I love the quality of the sound in the earphones. I have other JBL products and I like the twist-lock technology, which never hurts. These do tend to wiggle their way out of my ear on occasion but I have small ears. With other wireless headphones, I've...

Good running or cycling headphones


Good headphones for the price you pay. The battery life was good. The overall feel of the headphones is good. It supplies good bass for the size and price of the headphones. Not a fan of the over ear piece though. If you want to spend under $100 on...
