Customer Reviews

After about 2 months of use, the left earbud stopped working.
genacat
Compared to my Zune earbuds, these provide much better mid-range sound, with ample bass which my zune buds just didn't have.
Z. Cavaricci
I also really like the sound quality because the sound is very rich and the bass is very good in these earbuds.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I compared these J2 earbuds directly with a pair of Sennheiser CX300 Earbuds that I bought and reviewed here on Amazon last year. I played some Ella Fitzgerald, Acoustic Alchemy and Brian Culbertson. I immediately noticed a difference in sound. The Sennheisers had more 'presence' -- the highs were clearer and the vocal range (around 1000Hz) was brighter and more natural. The J2s sounded a bit muddy or muffled in comparison.

That said though, listening is a very subjective experience. I listen for natural sounding vocals and acoustic instruments. I like a 'live' sound and not overdone or muddy bass. Just to get a different perspective, I did the same music test with my 14 year old son and his two friends. I played for them Life in the Fast Lane by the Eagles and let them switch between the two earbud sets. They hands-down chose the J2s over the Sennheisers. So much for my opinion. :-)

I think I'd conclude that if you like bass-heavier, mid-range type music - maybe genres like rock, hip-hop, alternative, techno - then these J2s would work fine for you. If you tend to be fussy about equalizer settings, like to hear a clear soundstage and presence, and critical listening to music is important to you, then I would shop around some more, or at least compare these earbuds to others in the same price range.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As Apple headphone replacements, these are very good headphones. Purely on an audio basis, these leave a lot to be desired, highs are muted.

September 10, 2009 Update: Wow JLabs continues to be amazing. In the middle of the summer, the audio jack separated from the headphone wires. Essentially making the headphones useless. They got a ton of play by my son who loved the design. A few emails to JLabs and no response. After a month or so and a few emails, I gave up. Oh well, go buy some new headphones, and call it a day. Well this past week I got an email saying they were sorry about not responding. Another email back with no intention that they would respond. Oh my goodness was I wrong this evening. They are standing behind these broken headphones and sending me a replacement. There's another little bonus as a great good will gesture. These guys just amaze me. There is also a letter of apology by the owner of JLabs explaining what happened. A rough customer service moment for warranty repairs; and they appear to be back on track beautifully.
September 19, 2009 Update: replacement earphones have arrived. They included a nice vinyl JLabs zipper case for the headphones, and a speaker surprise. So Jlabs did make right on this problem.

Nov. 27, 2009 update: JLabs is a very impressive company. They posted a comment to this review and suggested that I burn in the headphones. That is very good advice - sometimes it does take 24 hours or a week or two to free up a speaker and get it to sound optimal. So I ran my iPod for 24 hours, played 394 songs at medium volume (no I didn't listen that whole time). My particular sample improved somewhat, but the highs are still muted (reran the same tests). Clearer now, but still not the fabulous sound I've read about in so many other reviews.

I bought some earphones not too long ago from Radio Shack. They were the kind you press into the ear. They were awful. The sound was bad and they wouldn't stay in the ear at all.
The jbud j2 are also a kind that you press into the ear (stay in pretty well you you give them a small twist when inserting instead of just pushing them in.) It made me a little nervous, but the price wasn't bad and the reviews were all good, so, I decided to go ahead with the purchase. Amazon got them to me in less than a week and packaged them well.
The sound quality is very good. Some of my classic piano concertos just come to life with these.

The dynamic range may be a little too good. I like to listen to music before I go to bed and I would use the Samsung earphones that came with my player, and by the way they are very good for being the included earphones. Since it's right before bedtime, I'll turn my player's volume down to 2 or 3 (out of 30). The J2s when turned down that low on volume, the higher frequencies I can't hear like I could with the "cheap" earphones. Perhaps it's my hearing. This really isn't a complaint because when I turn the volume up to say 10, It (J2s) sounds fantastic.

The construction seems pretty good, but only time will tell for sure.

The noise canceling part of the earphones also works very well, if that's what you like. The Samsung earphones you could hear other people talking just fine and still listen to the music. J2's you cannot. That can be good or bad depending on the situation.

I may get another set for my son.
They are good,
Bryce

Verified Purchase
I am not someone who goes out of their way to bash a product or company, but the particular J2s I bought were sub-par.

I agree with the other reviewers that the construction of the buds is good and I wished they would have worked. The problem I have is that the sound volumes between left and right are way off - like the left bud is 2x as loud as the right. I even did the 24 hour burn in, like Jlabs recommends, and while it did make the sound better, it did not even out the overall volume levels to anything resembling normal.

So I figure it is just a bad set, and Jlabs will make it right. Not so.

After 5 days of waiting, 2 emails with no reply and 3 calls that all end up in voicemail with no way to leave a message I am feeling ignored. A simple auto-reply to the email that Jlabs calls 24-hour would have been nice.

I am considering sending them back to Amazon for a refund, if I don't hear back from the company real soon.

UPDATE

So, I was contacted by JLabs after about a month and their customer service stepped up to the plate to offer replacement and threw in a portable speaker set.

Amazon had already replaced the buds - and the new ones were rock solid. Very good sound through both ears.

If I had to re-rate the product it would get 4 of 5 stars. The only downside to these is that they are a little larger then my Sennheiser pair. Otherwise a great product from a company that does what is right, in the end.
