    JBL Focus 500 reviews

    Focus 500 Behind-the-Ear Wireless Sport Headphones (Black) is rated 1.9 out of 5 by 66.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, poor execution Took a while to get used to the phones in the ear, a little fiddly to set in properly. Once they in, they sit on. Almost can't feel them in the ear. The biggest problem, and that pretty much ruins it all, is that the rubber ear pieces come off the little stalk on the ear piece very easily. So, as you pull the phones out of the pocket, bag etc or even as you untangle the the cable, the pesky rubber ear hook just slides off. In one month of owning the phones I managed to lose it at least half a dozen times... thankfully every time I have been able to find it. No I'm not a careless person, and very careful with headphones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best headphones I’ve ever owned I bought these 8 months ago and they’re still working perfect. I use them at the gym and they stay in my ears and are super comfortable. Amazing sound quality. I put them through the washing machine by accident and they still worked perfect. The battery lasts 8 hours. Charges in less than one hour. I will never buy another pair of headphones again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the price I am on my second set I lost the first :) battery lasts at least 6 hours of continuos use , very ligth good sound once you fit them correctly , at first I was very disapointed but I misplaced in my ear and boom there was great sound so afet a little tweaking i fitted thm correctly , once you find the correct way to fit them in your ears the sound is good and if you ge this at a medium to high volume you dont hear any background sound that its great if you us them to work or study but not so if you want to jog or ride a bike , over all great product very comfortable good sound the only thing is a little weak on bass, definetly would recomend them

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice sound, with slight modifications I read the reviews for these earbuds after purchasing and was quite disappointed. I got these for a pretty good price and the JBL logo sold me since they're typically known for making products that produce good sound. Despite the reviews, I had to find out just how terrible they were for myself, so I opened up the box and tried them out. Ok, the ear hooks are awkward, and they do pop off as you remove the buds from the box, but I pushed them down onto the plastic attachment piece and they seemed secure. More with the awkwardness, they fit weird and were hard to fanagle onto/into my ear and just weren't comfortable. Then I heard the sound quality (or lack there of) and was near set on returning them. Just to give it a try, I removed the hooks and was able to twist the buds down into my ear more. WOW! the difference; there's bass! If you have this product and are experiencing the same issues, I highly recommend you remove the hooks and get some better positioning in your ear (just keep twisting them around until you can hear all sounds). Also, I shook my head around, simulating an 80's rock band member, to see if the buds would fall out without the hooks attached (yes, I was alone while doing this). They did not fall out, SUCCESS! Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design and uncomfortable I got these as a gift. The part that wraps around the ear falls off constantly since nothing is holding it together except for friction. I'm not sure why they chose to have this part be removable. The piece that goes into the ear does not accommodate my ears and leaves a red mark if I wear them too long. The bluetooth range I get with these is about 10 M, which isn't terrible. I've had sporadic success with using them on the phone. The white colour is kind of an ugly light grey. Finally, I'm not sure what is "womanly" about these.
