I’ve been using the jarv nmotion for about a month. It’s my first set of bluetooth earbuds, and i decided to go bluetooth after having had several earbud sets fail at the plug end from the fatigue of handling them in and out of pockets so often. I paid about $30 for it; list price is $70. I haven’t researched to find out if bluetooth is quite expensive to add to a device, or if i’d consider this product’s list price over-priced for the acoustic quality. I’m very satisfied with the $30 price point. A note on the acoustic quality – it’s slightly better than my previous earbuds, which were $20 monsters (and not bluetooth). I tend toward audiophile quality for music (i’ve spend $140+ for earbuds in the past). If music was my primary use then i probably wouldn’t be delighted with these. Pros:* good quality for podcasts and phone calls, though slightly lacking in the mid-range. In fact sometimes i use them at home for phone calls because they are easier to listen to than the iphone speakers are.
**update** i put these to the test i was impressed that a fully charged battery lasted (playing music continuously) for 6 hours and a few mins before dying also the sound is still great however using on phone calls sometimes sounds like a robot and the buds are a little uncomfortable after extended use these is my only complaint i really like the earbuds. I have small ears so its always been a challenge for me to find ones that would actually fit and stay in my ears. They come with 3 different size buds, mine actually have the med size on right now and they slide out so i should probably change to the small but anyways. They have great sound and really good quality. Also, they have really good range, im not sure as to how many feet but i can leave my phone at my desk at work and walk all the way to the back of the office to the restroom and still hear my music clearly. Which is 5 cubical offices down, so pretty decent.
This is my second pair of these earbuds because the dog ate the first. I was so impressed with the quality for the price of that first pair that after the dog and i had words i immediately ordered a replacement of the same ones. (actually not exactly the same as the first pair had red wires while these have purple because red was out of stock.
Love these- i am the receptionist in an office environment and i was looking for something that i could wear as i move around the office. The purple color matches the photo, the battery life is awesome, super easy to recharge. Sounds really good, the controls are non obtrusive. The ear buds have a sort of anchor to hold them in your ear without the over ear clips, which i like. But if you were to wear them running or something you would want to use the clips for the added support. Definitely happy with my purchase.

So far i really like these headphones, the sound quality is very good and they stay in my ears really welledit: however, the battery life is awful. If i don’t charge these right before/the day i plan to use them, they’re almost definitely dead even if they were just sitting in my bag. I make sure to turn them off after i’m done, but they die so quickly it has left me without headphones more than i’d like. If they’re charged though, they’re great.
I expected the controller thing to hang next to my face but it isn’t that long, expect the same quality sound as any average similar-looking non-wireless unit with decent files(320kbps?) i wasn’t blown away but it doesn’t sound bad either, they can go very loud, sound is clear, bass is there and can be eq to sound very deep but it can distort when there’s more than just bass in a track, the mic i guess its ok, my problem so far is you can hear static noise when the volume is very low or maybe not so low, cant remember if wired does the same, tested on lumia 928 and pc with a bluetooth dongle so old its already rusty, heard no difference, lumia should be 4. No way to know so far, the calling profile or whatever is nonsense, it sounds like crap for no apparent reason, on pc i see it divides in two outputs one for calls other for media, media one sounds perfect, call one sounds like a gameboy, i don’t understand the logic here but the issue is you cant really choose on a phone, so you’re stuck with crappy sound when summoning cortana/siri/google now i guess, haven’t tried an actual call but i expect that same bad qualityoverall they are good, they look nice, don’t weight anything, the controller thing can pull the cable and your left ear wont let you turn your head but i guess that’s me, and it works for gym, i see no way to get it wet since the controller is always hanging mid air on your neck anyway, audio quality is good enough for 90% of population in my opinion, and reception is not a problem, but remember reception can be affected by both the earphones and the player device, they definitely can do a few meters away even with concrete walls in between, interference from other rf sources is another problem though, aand they lasted a good 3-4 hours without even charging them after unpacking.
These were a little different than expected, but not bad. The cord is flat like tape, whereas i thought it was round. Like other reviewers commented, the strap did lean to one side because the buttons/control box is not centered. But after getting used to it i like them for most activities. They have done great on the treadmill, the elliptical, when weight lifting, when doing planks and stair step. However, they kept falling out when i was jump roping. So they might not be the best option for anything with a lot of jumping or jiggling. Also, sound quality was great. It took a few tries to get the ear pieces adjusted, but i like the over the ear addition best to hold them in place. Good product for the great price.
Got them in two days ago, still new to me. I will write my initial thoughts then come back and update the reveiw. ( 4/9/2015)right out the box they were charged and ready to go. Very easy to pair to my note 2. Sound quality is excellent, i did notice if you have your phone on you the sound is uniteruppted, if you leave your phone in another room sound breaks up a lot. The only draw back i noticed is that the wire should be a bit longer. So far so good, i will add to my review later on. Update 5/17/2015use them most of the day at work, still battery last all day i really love these headphones. I strongly recommend this product.
Likes: the indicator light for on/off, bluetooth, and charging are clear and understandable. They are easy to charge and stay charged for days. I haven’t used them till they stopped working, so don’t know how many days of gym time they actually last, but i use them for about 2 hrs daily and charge them about every 4-5 days. I set my phone down and go workout on lifting machines up to 20 yds away, after that you hear static with your music. Dislike: i installed the ear stabilizer and the ear clip, as shown, but what that actually does is hold the earphone outside the ear canal and you get a puny sound. I did put on the smaller set of earbud covers. I may take off the stabilizer to see if that will get the buds closer to my ear, so that i can hear the awesome sound that i hear when i press them to my ear. Still trying to figure this out. I haven’t needed to used the mic yet.
Lightweight, but long enough wires to reach my ears while clipped onto my shirt collar. Ansers calls like i wanted it to, and is easy to use with the music player. Great product for the price. Wish the battery lasted longer, but that’s what you get for the size of the unit. Battery lasts long enough for my day to day activities, but has to be charged after a few hours.
These are the best wireless headphones for your money. I use them at the gym all the time. Never had them slip out and they hook up to my phone without a fuss. Batteries last along time, i charge them maybe once a month and i use them for hours and hours. They are also very comfortable. And the best part is i don’t have to worry about embarrassing myself by walking away and being snagged to the equipment.
I love this device, very easy to connect, and very portable. Everyone states that it doesn’t fit are stay in your ear but for me i had to switch the ear tips to medium size and put on the behind the ear clip and it stayed perfectly fine. I will be putting a review of this earbud on my youtube channel in the near future stay tuned. In all honesty the earbuds have a short range of bluetooth but maybe thats just my product.
I loved these the first time i wore them. They fit well and the sound is great, but this was all indoors. The first time i took them out cycling, the feed kept breaking up. The second time i wasn’t even a block from my house when the feed stopped completely. Third time, it worked perfectly. I use a spi-belt when i cycle and had the phone on my back during the first few rides. I then decided it must be related to the phone placement and the bluetooth receiver. I moved the phone to my hip and had much better reception. However, i did that again today and the feed was spotty. I *think* i discovered that the volume control portion does not like to be bumped around, once it was somewhat stabilized in my helmet strap it was much better.
Like another reviewer, i have a problem with them falling out of my ears. I also have plantronics bt earbuds and do not have this problem. I believe it is due to the weight of the modules that form a base for the actual earbuds and the control module. I ordered the jarv nmotion set when the right speaker failed on the plantronics earbuds. I do not where the earbuds when exercising, so it is a minor annoyance rather than a big problem. At (slightly less than) half the price they are a pretty good deal.
I’ll admit that i was very skeptical when i purchased these, but i really hate being tethered to my phone or laptop with traditional earbuds. I’ve had bluetooth headphones before that were pretty worthless unless you were right in front of the computer/phone and the sound quality was meh at best. So these have completely surprised and impressed me. The sound quality is great i can just about walk around my complete office suite (about 30 foot radius) without having them skip. I haven’t been able to wear them for an extended amount of time so i can’t really speak to the battery life as of yet, but so far i am loving these things.
I used these for the first time at my gym yesterday. I noticed that the earbuds did not fit correctly; they were too big to fit correctly inside my ear and floated just outside my ear opening. For this reason the sound was not very good and to hear any bass what so ever i had to push them with my hand against my ear. This action defeats the purpose of wireless blue tooth — my wired earbuds fit inside my ear and provide wonderful sound but i have to worry about the wire. I also noticed these earbuds do not alert me that i have a text message as the wired headset does. On the good side, i like that the charging cord is like my cell phone cord with a usb end and that there is a light that alerts when they are fully charged. I will continue to use them at the gym and i will try changing out the rubber earbud to see if i can get a better fit. These are still a good buy the money.
Acquired for about $twenty and have experienced for about three months so good offer. Like that they are not huge and quickly healthy in my purse when not using and will not have a huge plastic piece that would crack if i accidentally have one thing in my purse crush it like other headsets. The only point i never like is often the have a tendency to shift just a minimal at a time and around time it all adds up and then the band receives caught in my hair and it takes two palms to readjust the full thing. I normally have that issue even though driving but i am a lady with a ton of very long hair and this shifting takes place when i flip my head when on the phone. Some people say they have a tough time listening to me but i feel they are the similar men and women that are unable to listen to me usually on the phone with out the headset. I think it has a wonderful vary as i have place the telephone in toilet on the farthest aspect of my 2000sf property and have produced it just pretty much two/three to the other aspect of the property just before it reduce out as a take a look at. Recharge is quickly and you can observe movies on your cellular phone with it for many several hours at a time. (i purchased it so i could watch netflix on my cell phone when having my new child to slumber at night time).
The coloration and how it is not to extended not to small just suitable. And how it has unique ear buds for diverse sizes. How the buttons operate with my mobile phone and its so straightforward to set up. What i didn’t like is how it disconnects when my cellular phone is put absent in my backpack it really is not considerably absent from my cell phone and suitable absent link is awful. I have to pair it frequently when i go out climbing. Would like they were being very good plenty of, i did not have something else to complain about but that. But for the money i guess i are not able to complain.
I use them for zello (walkie talkie app). The audio high quality could be superior but in general it is usable in my occasion. You will require to use the involved ear hooks. They are meant to be for ‘sport’ but i located that these would drop out regularly just by turning my head devoid of them. The controls are on the appropriate underneath the ear bud and will make for an uncomfortable equilibrium. Total they get the task accomplished for the cost but if you are an audiophile or buying them just for music then i would glimpse for an alternative.
Just received these in currently, so considerably so excellent. At initially i was not sure about the mic becoming so considerably ‘off’ to the suitable, but i examined some phone calls and it really is apparent on their end, so that’s great. I like that they’re only 3 buttons to handle, it makes it simple to know which a person is which although driving. The assortment is petty good as nicely, i left my mobile in my bedroom and walked to my front doorway and i was however equipped to listen to my new music. The ear stabilizers are basically a fantastic plus, they hold the buds in location fairly well. I will definately endorse these if i should really listen to a person in will need of a fantastic, reasonable wireless bluetooth set. The only factor i’ve noticed when typing this assessment, is that there is a very little, very little cutting in on my songs actively playing, but almost nothing far too dissapointing.
Initial of all i acquired these so could ride my bicycle with no tugging on the wire and getting to stop my journey to place them again on. For that they handed the test and was very well well worth the invest in nevertheless, i do use them other than to workout. They are very snug and 1 can very significantly use these all working day. The variety is not much too far but i am by no means absent from cell phone anyhow so that does not trouble me. They also charge genuinely rapidly and if you have an apple ipod or apple iphone you get a battery notifaction appropriate future to the telephones battery. One particular adverse is that the ear buds never get far too loud but they have superior sounds isolation so you can however listen to the songs and pod solid completely distinct with very little to no outside the house noise and you have a reduced possibility to blow your ear out. All in all, really great pair of ear buds.
They do are inclined to pull out of your ear if you are going all around a ton, but it isn’t almost as poor as some people are submitting. They wouldn’t be the greatest for carrying for the duration of a gymnastics function, but aren’t lousy at all for typical exercise. Also are wonderful for driving in the vehicle considering the fact that you can conveniently use only a single earbud. Battery lasts for three or so hours of regular chatting/listening, and sound top quality is fantastic. The bundle consists of three various sized earbuds much too.
