Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst quality ear phones,pls donot buy this earphone i had bought it on march2022,with in 2 months the wire started tearing now .today the both earphones completely broken ..very cheap quality material is used . I had not expected such low standard material from reputed company like JBL. There was 1 year guarantee but, JBL team is not helping me to to get new pair of it and giving some silly reasons pls don't buy this earphone ..jbl customer service is not supportive

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed. These headphones are advertised as sweatproof, I disagree. I'm now on my second pair that have broken with the same issue. Initially the sound quality is great and they don't fall out, however after my 2nd or 3rd run with each pair I've experienced the same issue where the headphones begin automatically causing my volume to go up and down on their own. This varies from mute to full volume and becomes quite painful. They also cause the 'hey google' feature to constantly pop up, pausing my media and making running very difficult due to the distraction. I feel like this is an issue with sweat getting to the microphone as I can't see any other reason for it to happen on both sets of headphones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for running I am really disappointed. I was looking for a good headphones for running, but this one keeps falling out. The Fliphook is a joke, and the promotional video is fake: you have both the remote and the battery 5cm far away from the plug. If you try to use it in the Fliphook way they would be behind your ears... The sound quality is great, but you can use this only for moderate activity in a gym...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fell out of my ear :( I really liked the Inspire twist lock style because they would not fall out during my workouts. I thought I'd give these a try since they are the new style. Unfortunately, they fell out when I tilted my head. I tried the other tips included in the box but the same result.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for their price I quite like these earphone for the moment. Hope they will last me a long time. I found 45 degree angle jack annoying, I'd prefet a 90degree. The magnet that keep the earphone together when not in use or a nice feature, but get in the way when you try to untwist the wire. there is no soft junction between the wire and the component, which could fatigue the wire more easily. The Fliphook technologie is unintuitive as you need to change the earphone of ears to flip them, which break stereo in some song.(I still don't know wich is the real right and real left...) positive: fit really well, light, sound quality is okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cost effective headphones I bought them not expecting much at all, I mean they were under 20 bucks. But i ended up very surprised. They offer great volume, solid noise cancellation, comfortable fitting eartips, and they're reversible. So far these are the best in-ear style headphones ive owned besides the beats i had a few years ago. The only thing that sucks id that they shorted out after a month, but I assume that's because i treated them kinda poorly and used them at work pretty much every day. Besides that they're great headphones Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, superb value for money I never imagined such good sound quality from an earphone of this price range. Your ears won’t get tired easily and overall tonal balance is good if not a little bass-heavy (most people will like that, I guess). Sound is also not harsh on the high end and has reasonably good detail in the mid range. Comfortable to wear and overall satisfying experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Went for my first run this morning with my new earbuds & a couple of miles in, the sound kept getting turned all of the way down. My screen continuously was getting turned on. Seems like the inline mic & controller is the cause. I wasn't using this piece, but when it is moved or touches something, and I am listening to Google Play Music, the screen flips back and forth & the volume steadily drops to mute. Seems as if is overly sensitive. I liked them otherwise, but this makes them unusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good stuff I can't use any other earphones anymore because of how much better these ones are. Sound, comfort, durability are all 5 stars. If you're into traditional wired earphones, and even if you don't use them for working out, you should buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the design, color and feel! So happy with my purchase! I have a JBL portable speaker and it’s been One of the greatest investment I’ve ever made... Trying headphones in the same brand just made sense! I was always having problems with my old headphones falling out of my ear while I was on a run... The design of these make it so comfortable to stay in place and helps cancel out other noises.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Headphones! Small Price! I totally recommend these headphones to anyone looking for a great set of headphones. Who doesn't want to spend tons on money. These headphones truly blew me away with the sound quality. It has an insane bass sound. The highs sound very crisp. I will say, I'm not surprised. JBL makes quality products. I own several other JBL products. They all prove to be high end sound quality. Like these headphones & my 3.1 soundbar. These headphones fit snug. But not so tight that they cause discomfort. What's even more impressive is that. When I exercise or do work around the house. I can place them behind my ear & they still sound great & fit nicely. I can't say enough about this product. Get yourself a pair & give them a try. Thanx JBL for quality at reasonable prices! PS: Even the unboxing experience feels great! They come so beautifully packaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I'm so glad I found these headphones. No batteries to charge, amazing sound quality, waterproof, customizable ear tips, in-line pause button, good microphone, comfortable and squishy, can wear regularly or over-ear. They're awesome. Only a couple of improvements would make these even better: 1. Make them more rugged so they can stand up to more abuse. With wire headphones it is inevitable that the wire will be inadvertently pulled on and they can eventually lose connection. 2. Add in-line volume buttons in addition to the play/pause button. Other than those 2 things, they're perfect.

Date published: 2020-07-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from V VERY good sound quality. Apparently quite sturdy. Fair bit of cable noise. The trouble with most "best in-ear headphones under $50" lists online is that they are too narrow in the headphones they test. If they bothered to test these, they'd probably end up putting them in their list. The Wirecutter tests other JBL models but apparently not these, possibly because they are "sports" model - a fairly arbitrary exclusion since the audio on these is superior to some of their non-sports models. To the audio: it's nice and flat through the middle, with not much low-mid boom at all, but without sacrificing mids. Voices are nice and present. Bass is not over-emphasised which may lead to claims of "having no bass" by those used to that kind of boominess. The treble is slightly emphasised, leading to a lot of high end detail and a breathiness, but is not very harsh and symbols etc sound pretty natural. All in-ear headphones have some kinds of peaks in the mid to high treble imposing a character to their sound and these have a sound to them, but these are fairly natural sounding in that area, and their brightness does not cause fatigue. All in all very impressive sound and deserving of being placed into "best sound under $50" or similar lists. There is a fair bit of cable noise due to the relatively thick rubbery cable, this is not of the rubbing on clothes variety but just bouncing about on eg your chest. If you wore these over your ears it may help, but these seem designed to be more comfy worn straight down despite their marketing claims, if for no other reason than their left/right channels would be mirrored when worn over the ears. So find a way of clipping it to your shirt or threading it through to reduce cable bounce and that'll improve things. Not a huge deal and certainly not unique to these headphones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FlipHook causes reverse stereo imaging The headphones are well isolating. Maybe too well, it's odd that it is called "Endurance Run" when using them outside at a low volume will cause you to not hear anything around you. May not be too safe. There is less cord noise when flipping them around the ears. The problem is this is that the Left becomes the Right and the Right becomes the Left. Stereo imaging is completely reversed. There does not appear to be a solution for this. There is no instruction booklet at all inside the box.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lasted 6 months Had a pair of Reflect Minis that I loved. Got a new phone (Samsung S20 FE) and the Reflects weren't compatible with the bluetooth anymore. Got the Endurance Run to replace them and they did pair and worked with the new phone. Audio quality was good for in ear sport headphones. Fit was average. Had to do the reverse twist lock thing which is kind of confusing at first. After 6 months they started shorting out from sweat damage. Doesn't seem very sweat proof to me. They'd be OK if for light activities but for anything moderately intense or more I'd look for a higher IPX rating

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit for purpose These are really good. I’ve had a few ear phones and I have to say there’s are a great replacement for the sort of work ido sweating and constantly moving & carting things. No cord to get caught and pull out, you won’t lose these. They can be worn straight down or reversed and over the ear, this is fantastic as regular hard activities makes regular ear pieces retention difficult. These come out on top after my long search these are fit for purpose, They can also be worn under ear muffs(fantastic) Good sound but are a touch shy of great sound. Would definitely recommend these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing like what Yurbuds made I had a single pair of Yurbuds for 6 years and never had an issue with them falling out during runs or workouts. After many years of use the ear enhancers got stretched and I also wanted a pair of headphones with a mic and phone/music control. I purchased Endurance Run hoping for the same, and they are terrible. Non of the enhancers fit my ear and there seems no other sizes than what came with the Endurance Run. During runs and workouts I am constantly having to adjust. I wear my wire under my shirt and with the Yurbuds ZERO issues but with the Endurance having the wire in my shirt cause so many issues with them falling out. I could not recommend Yurbuds enough to everybody but with these, I having nothing good to say. It is so disappoint to see what JBL has done with the Yurbud locking system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I have been searching for I have tried dozens of earphones, and they all either hurt my ears, or they constantly fall out. These earphones never fall out, and I can wear them for hours and they never hurt my ears. I carry them in my pocket every day, and I use them whenever I want to listen to music or talk on the phone in private.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in-ear I ever bought!! These are just the best in-ear I have ever owned. I've had them for over a year now and they to there job and more. I'm a drummer so I need some in-ear that block a lot of outside noise to protect my ears and stay in my ears even when doing some crazy head movement. The loop feature is just the best for keeping it in place. So if you're hezitant on buying these, just know that if a drummer can play with them and not fall off plus blocks a lot of outside noise, they'll be perfect for your workouts, runs and other activities even snowboarding!!!

Where's the manual so I can understand the different functions of the remote button? Especially, how do I remote control volume? One click seems to get different actions with Stitcher vs Spotify.

Our JBL Endurance Run doesn't have volume controls and needs to be directly adjusted using your phone/source. It's a one button remote for accepting calls with a single press, a long press activates Google or Siri .

Do the magnetic buds affect the sound? I bought a these earbuds about a month ago and have used them a few times and noticed that the left earbud sounds extremely low, the only thing I can think that affects the sound might be the magnetic buds

Asked by: Sonicalm
Hi there, interesting question. No, the magnetic feature on the earbuds' only purpose is to easily manage the cable when the headphones isn't in use. If you're experiencing low volume on the left side, it could be caused by something else. Try to make sure that there aren't any obstructions on the earpiece itself or check to see whether there's any physical damage to the left earpiece.

What's the difference between the Inspire 100 to 300 series compared to the Endurance Run model. Does the larger drivers in the Inspire models improve sound quality and/ or volume?

Asked by: Lee J Wales
Driver size isn't a direct relation to sound quality or volume. The main difference of the Endurance series to those Inspire models is that these use a fully closed aural design that seals against the ear canal, so they block out more outside sound. This can also lead to more consistency in sound quality and a more secure fit, but don't allow you to hear your environment around you as well.
