Bluetooth - And Perfect For My TV

Crutchfield customer from Groveland, FL on 7/22/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Awesome. Really suits my needs. Cosmos did a great job helping me pick out the perfect headset for me, and Destin in Tech Support was very helpful in setting up the headset for my TV. Love Crutchfield and all the employees; been shopping with them for over 30 years!

Sound and product quality is good, but the ear muffs are too small. The specifications should be clear on the actual inside dimensions. Also, the head clearance is not enough when the headphones are fully extended.

Pros: Good quality

Cons: Size and adjustment

What a great sound for these headphones. Very happy with the size and quality.

Pros: Great sound, great price, feel really solid.

Cons: Does not come with a case. Knew that when I bought them, but it would be nice to pay a little more for a custom case to not have to guess on the best size case.

Amazing sound quality. It is like listening to songs for the first time. And I can dance anywhere! In front of the mirror, in the backyard and at the gym. They fit comfortably and do not move around when you are working out. Favorite Christmas present this year.

I bought these for my grandson for Christmas so I really can't speak to the quality of the sound but I am very pleased with the price. I have been looking for a while and found others for less but I had never heard of the brand and they were cheaply made. I am so happy that I found JBLs for the price and I am sure he will be happy.

extremely good for the price

Michael from Allendale, MI on 12/4/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Headphones are very comfortable to wear and very easy on the ears. Very good frequency range,and efficiency. Blue tooth set up is super easy and always simple to activate. I like these Headphones but they could use a little more Bass punch and deeper frequency range. Overall an excellent headphone for the price as well as ,very good quality and craftsmanship.

Pros: Great Sounding, easy to wear, very smooth frequency range, easy Bluetooth hook up and connectivity.

Cons: Could use a little more bass punch and lower frequency range, but for the money What is a little less impact. I have other headphones that I feel are a little deeper and better range but they cost twice as much.

Absolutely love them. I'm coming from Bose and one tiny downside is they are no where near as comfortable but they are not uncomfortable. The buttons feel cheap and very delicate.. the main problem. U can't change songs through BT. Only with the cord. Definitely deal breaker. Will return tomorrow.

Pros: Sounds great

Cons: Buttons feel extremely cheap and easily breakable. No forward or go back with songs on headset. Deal-breaker for sure

As usual Crutchfield did not disappoint. I bought two pairs for two of my teenagers. They came sooner than expected. But the best part is my kids LOVE them. They constantly have them on and both rave about them. Which is saying a lot coming from two teens. I am going to pick up another pair for myself.

Pros: Sound better than expected

Cons: Non so far
