Practically, all earbuds with the canal tips are considered noise isolating to a certain degree. Noise-isolating (in-ear) phones use a passive system, simply sealing the ear. To the 30db or so reduction in all outside noise this alone provides, sound is enhanced by being sent directly into the ear. The ratio of music to outside noise in the ear is, therefore, extremely high. They need no batteries, are lightweight and compact.
Specifically for those of you that have been shopping around, you probably noticed that JLab actually makes 8 different types of JBuds and may be confused on what the heck the differences are between all of them... Truth be told, there are actually slight differences between all of them. With the exception of the BOQARI Q1 JLab line, all of them have an OPTION of having a mic built-in for those of you that are using them with your phone/smartphone. The addition of a mic typically adds $10 to the MSRP but the price on Amazon varies (for example the J6 model with the mic is $12 more than the one without on Amazon JBuds J6 High Fidelity Ergonomic Earbuds-style Headphones (Nero Black)
vs JBuds J6M High Fidelity Ergonomic Earbuds-style Headphones with Microphone (Nero Black)).
** JBuds JBuds Hi-Fi Noise-Reducing Ear Buds (Black) - These are the base model version of JBuds. They MSRP for $49.95 but can be had for $10... which to me means they aren't any better than anoother standard pair of noise isolating earbuds.
** JBuds J2 JBuds J2 Premium Hi-Fi Noise-Isolating Earbuds -Onyx Black - MSRP $79.99 but $14.95 on Amazon. These were considered JLab's best selling earbuds for a while until they released the J5. The J2 was created to be better than the stock earbuds that typically come with portable audio devices, but included noise isolation, higher durability, and better sound. Due to the size, you had pretty good power.
** JBuds J3 JLab J3 Micro Atomic In-Ear Earphones with Travel Case - Jet Black - MSRP $79.99 but $19.95 on Amazon. Many people compare these to the J2, as they are near the same price but the J3s have some differences. First, it comes with a travel case and are a bit smaller in size. Because of the size reduction, you get a smaller driver which doesn't have as good of a range and lacks bass response in comparison. But still, some people prefer these over the J2s.
** JBuds J4 JBuds J4 Rugged Metal In-Ear Earbuds Style Headphones with Travel Case (Obsidian Black) - MSRP $89.95 / $33.40 on Amazon. So you may be thinking, for nearly double the price, are these headphones 2x better than the J2s or J3? Not really, but these are still decent earbuds that come with a travel case. The J4 was created with durability in mind: the buds are made of metal, the cords and molding are thicker. At the same time, the J4 becomes a little bulkier but with size, you get a slightly bigger drive that combines the punchiness from the J2s and the nice clarity of the J3s.
** JBuds J5 JBuds J5 Earbuds-style Metal Headphones for iPod, iPad, Tablet, Kindle (Black Pearl) - MSRP $59.95 / $29.95 on Amazon. The J5 marks the 5th model of the JBuds line and although there's a $30 price drop compared to its siblings in the JBuds line, the J5 takes a little bit of everything from the previous versions and combines them into one unit. The sound is good, the build is a bit more durable but with a slimmer profile and comfortable fit.
Finally we get to the meat of my review for the JBuds J6 line. To my knowledge, the J6 line isn't supposed to follow or displace the J5s, but rather be another option to the J5 just as the J3s were to the J2s. Remember, the J3s focused on travel/comfort. The J6's major features is that they are the slimmest, most lightweight, and comfortable JBuds produced to date.
The J6 is made of lightweight aluminium and is the size of about the tip of a woman's pinky finger. Since the focus is on comfort, this comes with a total of 7 different tips (four single, three double) in different sizes for maximum comfort. So if you're wondering if these will comfortably fit your ears, it's safe to say yes, it will considering the size of the tips range from small to large. As a bonus, a vinyl faux-leather pouch comes with the earbuds as a carrying case.
With the tiny size of the J6 comes a smaller driver (the smallest one out of all the JBuds) and with a small driver comes a smaller range of sound and less "boomier" bass than the other JBuds. Even with this con, the highs and mids still sound fantastic and the bass is still decent. But because of the noise-isolating feature, these earphones can be very loud if you want them to be. The sound quality given the price is pretty good, but I would prefer a bigger driver like that found in the J5s, J4s, or even J2s and sacrifice the clearness of the highs and mids. Regardless, I think for the price, these aren't bad but considering that the J5s, the J4s, and even J2s are cheaper, you might be happier with those since the driver is bigger.
One final con I have to say about these earbuds is that they don't seem to be very good for people on the go due to the amplified sound when friction hits the actual cord. What I mean by this is that it's very similar to the effect you hear when you put on a stethescope. That's what you will hear if the cable rubs across your shirt. Of course, this sound is drowned out when actual music is playing but when I have to press pause to stop listening to my music for a minute, the stethescope sound is what you would expect to hear while these are still in your ear.
UPDATE 11/28/2014: I've changed my rating from 3 to 5 stars. About a week after I posted my review, the right earbud resumed working. At first I was wary; thought it might be a fluke. However, it's been several weeks now and still working perfectly. Not sure what the issue was but it's all good now. Nice! I also appreciated that JLab responded to my post with apologies and their customers service contact info. (Appears they have deleted that post now).
I also like that they come with so many interchangeable ear buds. Really helps if you accidentally lose one, or if you need a different size.
