Description If you still have a pair of wired headphones or earphones, you are surely familiar with its drawbacks. Simple things like wire length, wire tangle, and the need to remove your device from your pocket to control it are all little nuisances that add up to a diminished calling/music listening experience. No Strings Attached Being JumblTM, we've got just the solution for you! Our clever Bluetooth dongle converts any standard 3.5mm earphones into fully wireless ones in a snap. This brings you the freedom of wireless range, and smart ergonomic controls enable you many common controls without the need to ever touch the device itself. More Capabilities On Call But the buck doesn't stop here. This tiny device is packed with features and technologies way beyond its size. Enhanced phone calling comes thanks to built-in dual microphones with titanium drivers, designed for echo cancellation and background noise filtration. A nifty clip allows you to attach the dongle anywhere on your clothing for optimal microphone and controls positioning. It also eliminates the hassle of removing your device from your pocket to control your music or phone calls. Features at your Fingertips Big, ergonomic quick-control buttons are smartly laid out on the dongle for most common device controls. Wirelessly and effortlessly start and stop music playback, skip songs, select music, answer incoming phone calls, and redial previous phone calls. This is especially useful when exercising, as it allows you to focus on your fitness goals and not on your device. Our JumblTM Bluetooth adapter even runs as long as you do! On a single charge, the built-in 120mAh rechargeable li-polymer battery keeps you going for 8 hours of music playback, 10 hours of hands-free call time, and up to 150 hours of standby. USB charging cable included.

This unit has stopped working after less than a month. It no longer connects to any of my devices. Do not buy this.
Below the line is my original review:
I bought this product because I wanted to be able to use my existing in ear headphones that I really like while being able to have my phone not directly attached. I'm ultimately really conflicted about this thing. On one hand, some things that it does really impress me. On the other hand, a couple things that it does really annoy me.
Things I like:
- Pretty easy to pair and get set up working on the first time. 9/10 times it will pair automatically after the first setup.
- Smaller than I expected. I expected it to be 2-3 inches big. It is actually much smaller. I've included some photos with a size comparison to an american quarter with this review.
- It is easy for me to control my media with the buttons. I wear this clipped to my pants, and I don't have to dig around for my phone to pause what I am listening to, which is nice.
- MOST OF THE TIME the audio quality is actually much better than I expected from bluetooth audio. I planned to use this mainly to listen to podcasts while I was walking around the city. You don't need super high quality audio for podcasts. My previous experiences with bluetooth audio and music were bad, but I was actually surprised to find that the sound quality that this thing provides was pretty good for music too. It's not as good as directly plugging your headphones in to a source, but I don't mind it too much.
- The Battery level is displayed on my phone up by the bluetooth icon. I've never seen this before, it's pretty useful. I use this on iOS, but I assume android has something similar. I've included a screen shot to show what I mean.
Things that I don't like:
- When I said above that 9/10 times it will pair automatically above, that is because 1/10 times it will forget it was ever paired and I will need to go in and re-do the pairing.
- When I said that MOST OF THE TIME the audio was better than I expected, it was because sometimes the audio stream will become interrupted and really jumbled for about 20 seconds. If I am listening to a podcast that means I have to skip back and re-listen to that portion. This happens 2-3 times an hour.
- I've run the battery from full to totally empty twice now by just constantly playing music until it stops. I do this test using externally powered speakers so there is no load on this device to drive any headphones or passive speakers. Doing this on 50% volume, the battery lasts 8 hours, not 10. This is under the best optimal circumstances. It's battery life is worse in the real world when driving headphones, and I may get between 6-7 hours. There is no way that this thing gets 10 hours of battery life.
- When this does get low on battery, it beeps at you every minute. This means that for the last hour of audio you get three beeps every minute or two. What were they thinking! This is really annoying.
Overall: This thing has better sound quality than I ever expected, and does make listening to audio on the go more convenient in general, but it has some issues with staying paired and the audio stream occasionally getting interrupted for 20-30 second spans. Additionally, it does not get 10 hours of battery life in the real world, more like 6-7, maybe 8 if your earbuds take low power to drive and you are under ideal circumstances.
I've included some photos of the device with an american quarter for size reference. I've also included a screen shot of my podcast player when connected to this device, to show off how the phone shows the bluetooth devices battery level.
-Battery life: Jumbl definitely wins on this. I can usually get around 8-9 hours of use while the Smart Bean only lasts about 5 hours.
-Connectivity: For some reason, the Jumbl has a tendency to disconnect from my iPhone randomly and refuse to reconnect, which is my biggest gripe with this device. This has happened twice in the time I've had it, and no amount of fiddling will get it to reconnect, which puts a big hamper in my workout especially if I'm in the middle of a marathon run. This is the main reason why I keep both my Jumbl and Smart Bean charged and on me at all times at the gym. The Smart Bean has never disconnected on me. The Jumbl also takes longer to connect to my phone than the Smart Bean.
Range: Jumbl has a slightly better range; I can't walk too far away from my phone with the Smart Bean on without the sound cutting in and out.
-Button functionality: The Jumbl has a superior skip button to the Smart Bean, which will cut out the first few seconds of a song when I skip. The Jumbl doesn't skip any art of the song. However, I do like how the Smart Bean has a voice announcing when the device is connected, when it's turning off, and when the battery is low. The Jumbl just kind of periodically beeps when the battery is low, which I tend to miss because it blends into the music I'm listening to. One additional thing to note is that people tend to hate how the Smart Bean flashes blue every few seconds to indicate that it's on, and the Jumbl doesn't do this. The Smart Bean will also dial the last person you called if you don't hold down the button long enough when turning it off, and I haven't run into this problem with the Jumbl.
Button layout: the layout of the Jumbl is meant for it to be clipped vertically not horizontally, so on the tops of shirts or pants. However, I tend to wear tanks or only my sports bra when working out which means I clip my bluetooth device horizontally. The buttons on the Jumbl get a little confusing for me this way, while the layout of the buttons on the Smart Bean make more sense for me clipped to my bra straps.
-Sound quality: The Jumbl gets a little louder than my Smart Bean, but it has inferior sound quality. The sound has a background buzzing quality to it, and the bass is unbearable at higher volumes.
-Clip: I would say the Jumbl has a slightly tighter clip than the Smart Bean, however the clip of my Jumbl tends to get messed up when I stretch the clip too far because there's a peg and hole type situation going on in the back which can get knocked out of place and be a little fussy to fix.
-Extras: the Smart Bean comes with a male to male jack, which I appreciated. The Jumbl doesn't come with anything extra in addition to the charging cable. The Smart Bean has also survived the washing machine without being affected at all, but I'm not about to put my Jumbl through the wash to see if it's just as durable.
OVERALL, the Jumbl would get a solid five stars from me if it didn't randomly disconnect from my phone and refuse to reconnect, as I've mentioned. I've gotten so frustrated every time this has happened that I was seriously intent on returning the device, but every time it's magically fixed itself by the next day.
