Comfortable for small ears, decent sound
on February 22, 2016
These earbuds lasted for five years. When I bought them, they were a few dollars more expensive than they are now, but I still think I got my money's worth.
I've owned several earbuds, but a lot of them are usually big for my ears (even without the tips) and hurt when wearing them, or they wouldn't stay in place. That wasn't the case with these. The JBuds come with three different sizes of tips and the smallest ones fit really comfortably and I never had problems with it falling out of my ears.
It has a standard 3.5mm connector, which worked in everything I ever tried it in - my computers, MP3 players, smartphones, tablets, handheld gaming devices, etc.
I mostly used them whenever I didn't want anyone else hearing the sound from whatever device I was using. So, places like the library, waiting around in the jury lounge, or at home on Skype when I didn't want the person I was calling with to hear any echo effects from my computer.
The sound quality was fine for my purposes where I just needed to hear audio without anyone else having to hear it too.
For the price, these are the earbuds that you take with you on the go and not really have to worry about losing them since they don't cost a lot to replace.
When the JBuds died, I ended up using the tips on a pair of earbuds I got as a freebie, and it made them so much more comfortable. The tips weren't an exact fit on those other earbuds, so they kept coming off and I lost one. I ended up buying a Panasonic RPHJE120A to replace them just to try something else and because those came in blue, but if those earbuds don't work out for me, then I'd definitely buy the JBuds again.
