I'm intending to use this in the gym. would this fall off when I'm jogging?

Asked by: Briana_
We usually recommend our Sport wireless headphones for workouts since they are made not to fall off and are capable of handling huge amounts of sweat. These headphones are mainly designed for casually using them in your everyday life and the earbuds may fall off during workouts since it does not have a twist lock feature unlike our sport wireless headphones. If you want to check on headphones that can be used for workout. Please check on this link. https://www.jbl.com/sport-headphones/

How do I unclog these earbuds?

Asked by: curloxide
Dear curloxide, Thank you for your request. We advise customers to use a dry cloth to clean the eartips of in-ear headphones. Alternatively, there are certified wet tissues that are usually used to clean hearing aid devices. These would also suffice. Best, Jakob

How are you supposed to wear it? It doesn't fit well. Also, I would like to note that after 3 days of buying it the sounds stopped coming from the gray area and started to come from the red and blue spots instead, i don't know how to fix it.

Asked by: Rahim
You can wear your JBL Tune 205 by wearing the headphones on the designated side as stated on the Headphones by the L and R on the earbuds. Try changing the position of where you wear the headphones and see if the sound would come from the gray area.

Just two weeks ago, i bought JBL T 110. I'm looking for extra bass from it. But, unfortunately it is too clear. Every time I used JBL T 110 in different gadget, I have to control the equaliser. I got no bass at all. What about T110 vs T205? Thx before. 

Asked by: Weny
The main difference between the JBL T110 and the JBL T205 is the larger dynamic driver, which would result to louder and clearer sound for the JBL T205. I noticed that you are in Indonesia. We would like to work with you directly with your JBL T110 headphones. Please submit a case at support.apac@harman.com and our Customer Service team will be glad to further assist you.

Are these headphones compatible with the PlaySTATION4 console?

Asked by: dagaber
For the PlayStation 4, you can just use a regular set of 3.5mm headphones to hear game audio through the port on the DualShock 4. To do so, from the PS menu, go to Settings > Devices > Audio Devices > output to Headphones > With your headphones plugged in select "All Audio" as opposed to "Chat Audio."
