"2nd Pair from JB, lasted 3 months! Not sweat proof!"0.5 starson by Kyle-Collier
Pros: Decent Sound, if you wear something to keep them pressed into your skull. Decent battery life for the first 3 months, now they do not charge.
Cons: Poor Design - ear hooks slide off when they get sweaty - completely defeating the purpose of them being there.
Sound quality - great for 3 months and only if jammed into your head. After 3 months, you get only pure static. See link to video below.
Summary: When I bought these, I had really high hopes (given the price) but they failed just as the first pair did. No response from customer service, nothing.
As mentioned in other reviews, they DO NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT.
Horrible Design - I'm a System Design Engineer and find the design of these headphones to be very nonfunctional. The goal of those rubber ear hooks it to keep the product secured in your ears. But if you sweat, then moisture gets between the rubber ear hooks and headphones, then the hooks slide off. This completely defeats the purpose of the rubber ear hooks.
Jaybird, why not put a small raised pieces of plastic on both sides of the location where the rubber ear hooks meet the headphones? Then they would remain stationary while you sweat!
Sound Quality - Horrible if not jammed into your head, I wear a headband over them so they do not fall out. After three months you get this, keep in mind this is my second pair from Jaybird. The first pair simply stopped charging, these make a nice static noise.
