JBL Soundgear


The JBL Soundgear is a wearable Bluetooth speaker that delivers a solid audio experience, but it can occasionally distort on bass-heavy tracks.

Powerful, loud audio performance with crisp highs and rich lows. Solid stereo separation. Easy to operate.

Can distort on deep bass. Vibrations might annoy some wearers. Rigid build is awkward to place around neck at first.

The JBL Soundgear delivers a pleasant sound signature, albeit one that can't reproduce deep lows. The distortion is not an ever-present issue, but it does occur and that's enough to give us some pause. In the battle of wearable speakers between this...

JBL Soundgear


JBL Soundgear review: Neither speaker nor headphones, this product is a very odd one indeed. Good for hands-free calls, though.

Decent sound quality ; Well built ; Relatively light

Uncomfortable ; Weak battery life ; Too much noise bleed ; Not cheap

Ideal for calls but perhaps a little too specific and uncomfortable for most.

Nice sound & fast response


Recommended. Good sound, lacking low/sub bass, but still nice. Very fast response, perfect for gaming. Could be more comfortable, I feel the weight of it on the back of my neck - This could be easily fixed, if there some cushioning on the back. Battery...

Necessity the mother of invention


Thats a famous quote.....but this product is the exception to the rule! I just cannot get my head around why it exists. Its the modern day equivalent to the 80s beat box, wandering around town with a massive stereo on your shoulders, making everyone...

Amazing sound, odd product


This is the kind of product that nobody really asked for but JBL have gone out there and designed it anyway. I was quite excited to receive this, as with all JBL products they are packaged nicely, akin to opening an Apple product. It took me a few mins...

Fabulous, does what is says on the tin!


To be chosen to review this product made me a little nervous, as I am not really a gadget person. (other than PC's and mobile phones). However I shouldn't have been scared or nervous at all, it is amazing. The most difficult thing I encountered was...

Great product, does exactly what it's meant to


First thing to say about this product is that it is very good. the sound quality is very good, and really does make it feel like surround sound. There really is something about the idea of having speakers surrounding you, but without being over your...
