The JBL Brand Reviews
The JBL Free headphones are real, genuinely wireless and high quality headphones. It has a very unique design that makes it more portable, but still a little less stable, than other very wireless headphones. Sports and user friendly, but volume controls are uncontrollable. Sadly, they have also an unreliable wireless connection and too much delay to view images.
The wireless JBL Free headphones are built special, robust and sufficiently lightweight to fit into most pockets. It’s nice case with a little bit bigger, though, than the IconX Samsung Gear. It doesn’t add too much Weight. They are stable and easy to use for sport and exercise. Sadly, the configuration of your button has no volume controls that is quite disappoints, and their unrivaled nature may not be as convenient and stable for all listeners as for some of the other truly wireless versions.
In comparison to other similar versions, the headphones are relatively narrow but also thicker. The headphones and case are suitable for reliability and density. They’re a little smaller than the IconX Samsung Gear. You will also have a circular recharge case, a clear cover that allows you to know the recharge status without opening the case. Sadly, the build quality of their Jaybird run, unlike Apple’s AirPods, is not polished, making them ruggeder than the top ranks.
Like the Jaybird Run, JBL Free has a strong construction quality which seems to have sufficient durability to withstand several accidental drops. Sadly, they do not work as well as many other genuinely Wireless headsets like the Beoplay E8 or Apple’s AirPods despite their robust and decently robust nature.
JBL Free’s continuous play time is less than average, but overall good battery life. It only lasted around 3.1 hours during continuous play and a very wireless headset took a very long time to charge. They have, however, stored up to 5 charges, for a total of around 18.6 hours. This should be more than sufficient for a whole day if you have pauses that are not suitable for heavy users. They do unfortunately not supported the JBL My Headphones app, as well as several other genuinely wireless headphones such as the Jaybird Run, the Samsungen Gear IconX or the Beoplay E8. Unfortunately, they also don’t.
JBL Free is a sound pair of headphones that is above average. They have deep, balanced lows, a warm, clear intermediate range, and very good heights. It’s very flexible and adaptable for a wide range of styles, from high bass EDM and hip-hop to rock and indie, publishers and audio books. However, because of the cut-outs in the middle and lows, the vocals and principal instruments could be slightly moved back and missed. They have good quality pictures, but they don’t have a big speaker-like soundstage like most other castors. See the best wireless headphones in our recommendations.
The JBL Free bass is really nice. The LFE is at 10Hz, suggesting a deep, long, bass. LFE (low frequency response). The overall reaction is also very well balanced and virtually flat but consistently higher than our neutral 1.5dB target. So the Free’s bass is suitable for all kinds of music, even though it is still as hyped as ever.
The intermediate performance is outstanding. The low- and high-mean answer is well balanced and nearly flat, but around 2dB is underestimated in the middle. All in all, their middle, providing a simple warm blend, is reasonably balanced. The score of approximately 700 Hz forces vocals into the back of the mix and focuses on the low frequencies.
The JBL Free performs very well in the trible. The response is relatively uniform and equally balanced across the spectrum. This large and shallow trough about 5KHz will have the detail and presence of vocals and major instruments subtle yet adverse effects. Tips/peaks from 6 kHz to 10 kHz, sounds (S and T) are often uneven.
The JBL Free headphones are decently comfortable, but not all listeners can also have their unique form. They’re very light on the back of the flip side and come with a few more tips and muffles to suit your ears better. They would be more comfortable than the Jabra Elite Sport. However, as long as they’re not against the fit of the inner ears as long as you don’t, they won’t be so comfortable like some other completely wireless headphones we’ve checked like the Gear icons or the Sport Free sound.
Their lifespan is good, 3.1 hours and their case gives five additional costs, giving a total lifetime of 18.6 hours. For most use cases it is advisable and it should be sufficient for one day if you do not have long, continuous listening courses, but they would not be suitable for heavy users.
The JBL Free has a microphone that is mediocre. In silent surroundings it sounds somewhat good, but clearly muffled and detailed, to the speech recorded or transmitted with this microwave. It is still decently easy to comprehend, however. In noisy settings, often in moderately noisy conditions, such as a busy street, it is very difficult to separate speech from background noise.
The JBL Free blocks most noise passively. They build a strong seal once in your ears which prevents the audio from getting a lot of high frequency noise. Also, they do pretty well with rumbling low frequencies, such as those from a motor, but not headphones that rumble. You can still hear the chat in your environment, especially in very noisy circumstances. Since they just leak, you can mask some of the noise without annoying the people around you by tweaking your music.
The Bluetooth link is only available for JBL Free Wireless. They cannot pair with multiple devices at the same time or support NFC, but will store the last automatic pairing sync device in memory until they are removed from the case. You have a decente 31-foot indoor wireless range when you are likely to block the source and view it directly at up to 74-foot. Sadly, the latency is much too high for viewing video material, and sometimes the left earbud breaks off irrespective of the range, which may be the source of contraventions for a few.
The JBL Free are great sports headphones. They have a stable and well-comforted in-ear port, which is very wireless. They are simple to use and lightweight and compact. You’re still pretty stable for workout as long as the extra rubber sleeves are nice for you. Unfortunately their volume controls are not as robust as some other wireless headphones, and its original nature is not as stably regulated.
