    JBL Focus 500 reviews

    Focus 500 Behind-the-Ear Wireless Sport Headphones (Black) is rated 1.9 out of 5 by 42.
    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 4 out of 5 by from I love the battery life and sound quality Bought these a little while ago and they are very comfortable however one of the over the ear parts came off and I've been trying to find a replacement to no avail I can still use them without it's just not as tight on the ear without it

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wireless headphones for the money!! Very good. I question those saying "not enough volume". I would suggest they spend a little time with the earbud sizes. I had some sound closing off until I got the right size. Once I got that right, they are very comfortable, reliable, long batter life and stay put. Very good for the price. They don't get 4 stars from me more for the controls, would prefer more buttons than reusing buttons so much by function. Also the mic for phone calls. It is OK, not great.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Decent, but Only at Concert Volume I was excited to try these. At first, the sound was decent but the moment I lowered the volume to 50%, the most awful and irritating noise took over. This nasty scratching and high-pitched buzzing that makes it literally impossible to hear the music. The second downside is that they are very uncomfortable and feel as if they will fall out. The third issue is the battery life and how hot they get after :45 seconds of use. The control module was burning hot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty decent I have had mine for a couple of months almost a year I do construction work and I do work out and I am in the rain a lot I haven’t had any problems with water at all I use them every single day and they last usually all day non stop or Pandora my iphone6 dies before these headphones while the sound isn’t too impressive they are very nice as for comfort they are very good in comfort I forget they are there some of the time and I am very happy with them

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't throw away your receipt. Primarily used for biking. With wind noise you can barely zone out and enjoy music because they are too quiet. They don't turn off when the lady in the ear phone says "power off", so next time you ride and get five miles down the road they shut down. If you're someone that plans on leaving them on a charger until the next time they're used, do not get these. The ear rubbers are adjustable, but not comfortable. They have killed my workouts and ruined my mood a number of times . Unless you plan to sit in a quiet room, next to an outlet, don't get these.
