Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some good, some bad. Purchased and used daily with dog walking mainly. Find that when my phone is in my pocket, it keeps cutting out the sound for approximately 5 seconds, it’s very regular, good few times per song and is my biggest grievance. Had other Bluetooth headphones in the past and never experienced it before. The sound quality it’s self is very good, not the loudest headphones but loud enough to be enjoyable with a high quality. Battery life is excellent. I do struggle for them to sit I’m my ear and stay there, I’ve used the “twist and lock” technique that the instructions suggest but they very easily just untwist themselves. Review I’d honestly give is 2.5 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible.Save your money. Don't waste your money. I bought these after trying a pair of $20 wireless headphones from Coles and deciding that if they didn't fall out of my ears, expensive ones certainly wouldn't. My issue with those were cutting out while wlaking. My JBL wireless speakers have always been good, so I took the leap. No cutting out but here's a fun fact - No matter what size earplugs you use, these will not stay in while you talk, eat, breathe or exist. They are massively overweighed. Absolutely useless. Reached out to JBL and they were no help either. Incredibly disappointed and won't be buying JBL in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact earbuds with big sound and great features Lots of features in a small package. Various sound modes, let you noise cancel or even hear conversations and room sounds without removing the earbuds, with Smart Ambient. Easy to set up and use, I like controlling these with the JBL mobile app. They come with a handle case that charges the buds when not in use. I can't speak to the 40 hours of boasted battery life because I've never had the batteries run out on me yet. Work great for music, watching videos, or making phone calls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING sound & EXCELLENT Battery Life!!! These Tune 130NC's have incredibe sound, excellent battery life, good call quality, & fits pretty snug when out & about or at the gym. While I personally don't favor using the ANC option in general, it does work but only in low noise surroundings & not near construction sites or onboard a public train. Took these out while cycling but the design isn't totally aerodynamic & therefore the earbuds' frontsides do catch the wind as I'm riding. Design is quite unique & looks cool, in my opinion anyway. Other than that, the sound quality is amazing while streaming EDM/trance music that I prefer listening to, nice punchy bass! For phone calls, voices from both ends are loud & clear, which is a plus although I primarily will be using these for music & sports radio content. Battery life is pretty awesome. Used it about 6 hours straight & battery remaining still at 40%, which probably translates to approximately another 4 hours, as advertised without ANC! The app is super helpful & offers plenty of customization for the earbuds' tap functionality & tailor your sound preferences for different music genres. Overall, great pair of bluetooth earbuds that will keep you entertained for hours & hours with no worries on battery life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Noice Canceling Buds I Needed Amazing Sound and features. With the JBL app you can do noice canceling or amplify surrounding sounds. The battery life is per charge is perfect for what I need. I wear them several hours at a time and havnt had theow battery yet, granted I also put them back in the charging case when done. The charging case is very convenient for charging on the go. The sound through these things is great, very good base and clear sounds. They feel good in my ears and pretty secure while walking and moving around in the yard.

I connected these through Bluetooth and that didn't work. So I went into Settings> Sound >Pair New Output Device. THAT worked.

Would these work and be comfortable with a daith piercing?

Asked by: watkins114
Good question! Although our Tune 130 NCTWS provides you an option to change the ear tips of the earbuds, this may still cause discomfort as the earbuds will have direct contact with the piercing. We recommend our line of over-the-ear headphones that may better suit your needs.

Are these able to be used independently without sacrificing features or controls?  I am deaf in my right ear and am looking for an ear bud for my left ear that has all functionality and features available.

Asked by: Single user
Our Tune 130NC TWS earbuds can be used independently, this is called mono mode. All functions can be performed using a single earbud. While the Voice Assistant feature can be assigned to your preferred earbud via the JBL Headphones App.
