Fit and feel: the cord is indeed tangle free and and ear pieces fit well in the ear, with easy-to-swap different sizes. They seal pretty well in the ear, and don't fall out easily. The cord length is comfortable for phone in my pants pocket. The sound quality is superb. I'm not an audiophile, but music sounds wonderful. If they were only lightning port headphones without the ANC, they'd be pretty good.
Noise cancelling: So, it's great that the ANC is powered from the phone, and it doesn't suck a lot of battery power, but there are two big problems with ANC. First off, Ambient Aware is counter-intuitive. MAX Ambient Aware means that you are MOST able to hear ambient noise, whereas LOW Ambient Aware means that you are LEAST able to hear ambient noise. You will eventually realize this, but you won't care because ANC is not that strong. It is noticeable, and it performed reasonably and minimizing low frequency noise, but mid-range and high frequency noises were essentially unaffected by ANC. It was helpful on an airplane, but if your goal was the kind of silence offered by a Bose QuietComfort brand device, this is nowhere close.
Summary: these are very reasonably performing in-ear sports headphones using a lightning port but an extremely mediocre ANC headphone. I think if they knocked the price down to $100, then I'd say it's worth buying, but at $200, I'm over halfway to a Bose QuietComfort 35 and should've just sprung the extra cash to get the top tier ANC.
-I love the design of these things. It's very well thought out. they feel very solid, the inline controls are well-placed and easy to press, and the cord is made of an interesting material that doesn't feel rubbery or flimsy, and seems to be pretty tangle-resistant, which is awesome. They also fit very snugly in my ears and make a great seal. For me, the shark-fin thingy is a must-have, otherwise my headphones always fall out during exercise. Speaking of exercise, these are said to be sweat-proof, which is great, and also something the Bose QuietComfort cannot offer. The cord on the bose is also very rubbery/sticky which can be annoying. But the biggest advantage these have over the Bose in terms of design is the lack of battery pack on the cord. Plus, they look great, especially in turquoise.
The JBLs sounds very good. Good enough that I never really thought about their sound quality, even coming from the Bose. The only thing I noticed is that the bass is a tad boomier than the Bose, and the soundstage is a bit less pronounced, but again I'm comparing to some top of the line earbuds. I'd say these are definitely better sounding than any headphone in the $20-$100 range. It's possible there are better sounding earbuds for this price that I haven't tried. Still, I think the Bose are a little bit more crisp.
Winner: Bose, but subjective
This is where the JBLs sadly fell short. The noise cancellation is noticeable, but nowhere near as drastic as the Bose. This might be a plus for some people, but as someone who relies on my headphones to keep the noises of a big city at bay, the JBLs just wouldn't cut it for me. For reference, if I'm wearing the Bose and a firetruck drives by blaring its sirens, I'll definitely hear it, but it won't be painful. With the JBL's, the siren is still painful even with noise cancelling on (I have pretty sensitive hearing). On the plus side, the JBLs draw their noise cancelling power from the phone which means no bulky battery pack, which is awesome. They also have an app which you can use to adjust the level of noise cancelling per ear, which is nice, but to me there's no reason not to have it on max all the time because it's fairly weak as it is.
If you've tried any Bose noise cancelling headphones/earbuds, you may be familiar with the weird "suction" feeling that the noise cancellation creates. The JBLs do not have this, probably because the noise cancellation is just less intense. If that feeling really bothers you, these might be perfect.
These formed a great seal in my ears, but I did notice that they started to feel a bit uncomfortable if I wore them for more than an hour. I don't know if others have experienced this. I think my ears might just be somewhere in between their medium and small sizes, where the smalls wouldn't make a seal but the mediums were a little tight. The Bose are some of the most comfortable earphones I've ever worn, including over-the-head ones. It almost feels like there's nothing there.
Between the cord length, sweat-proof design, and lack of battery pack, the JBL definitely win here.
If you need earbuds with a lightning port and can afford to spend the money, look no further, especially if you want some moderate noise cancellation, or something you can exercise in. But if noise cancelling is really important to you, and you don't plan on wearing these while working out, you're better off with the Bose and using Apple's adapter if you have an iPhone, or waiting until something better comes out. Having both the battery pack and the adapter is a little annoying but worth it if you need to really drown out the world.
Second pair of headphones through RMA have about 25% sound in the left ear. Awful - avoid this set.
