Go back to what works!


I love my old inspire 200/300s the ear pieces always stayed in my ear although not always on the ear phone. On these new 500s with this "noise canceling" flap of plastic on the end that is no longer true. This thing doesn't come off the earphone...

I like the fit a lot


These are my second pair of Yurbuds, first Bluetooth pair. I like the snug fit, and feel of the buds. I dislike the weird thingy that hangs in the back, but no big deal. MY only real issue is that they don't get loud enough. They block out gym sounds...

Some value, with drawbacks.


I have been using the product for 10 days or so. It's disappointing so far. The music audio is good. The phone audio is very sub-par. The controls are awkward and not that easy to use. The re-charging cord seems cheap. I will probably return soon. Even...

Good wireless headphones


Love these headphones. They don't stay in as well as the other Inpire regular headphones. It would be awesome if they had a magnet to clasp while around neck which would prevent them from falling off when not wearing them.

A good exercise companion


These wireless headphones make exercise so much easier. The connectivity and functionality are reliable and easy to use. The wireless range is good for studios, gym and home - 30 to 80 metres depending on obstructions. If they do cut out when out of...

Great audio quality


I love the quality of the sound in the earphones. I have other JBL products and I like the twist-lock technology, which never hurts. These do tend to wiggle their way out of my ear on occasion but I have small ears. With other wireless headphones, I've...

We took it back


Look to be honest. The sound was great, clear and sharp, our issue was that we could not get the bluetooth to go any further than our loungeroom, and even that sometimes wasnt functioning too well. Wether it was from our side or the headphones, im not...

Sports Headphones


The quality of the earplugs is also very soft, which is characterized by its twistlock technique, which makes the earplugs firm and does not fall off. Inspire 500 has a magnetic paste adsorption quik clik function, both back a touch can be glued...
