    JBL Soundgear reviews

    Soundgear Speaker (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL DOES IT AGAIN !!!! I love the JBL Sound Gear. It was very user friendly and easy to operate. It took me less than five minutes for me to learn how to properly operate the headphones. The bluetooth function connected flawlessly to several devices I used to test this function. It fits smoothly on the neck and did not feel awkward or out of place. The weight distribution of the Sound Gear fitted just right on my neck. The sound quality of the Sound Gear was crisp and clear. The four speakers located in this unit did a great job of providing a "surround sound" quality that I was very pleased with. Great job JBL!!! I would recommend the JBL Sound Gear to all my friends and family. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for naps and cooking I fell asleep wearing this. I laid down, told my house AI to set a timer and fell asleep. Now the bad part. Unfortunately the system shuts it self down before the battery is fully drained, this is bad. Stagnant charge is debilitating to a battery. This flaw lessen the longevity of this device. :( could have been great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time with a device like this. I'm very happy with the sound gear . Its my first one and I love the fact it goes everywhere with me. I play it low as to not impair my hearing . That allows the battery to last more than 8 hrs. I'm glad i made this purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, great gadget but one annoying thing I bought this product in Europe where it it’s already on the market. As expected, the sound is great, connectivity super easy and switching between phone calls and music is seamless. For sound in a personal space, it’s ideal. I also like the fact I can walk around the house with the sound near but not in my ears. Quite a new experience. But there is one annoying thing. There is no way to switch off the product quietly! JBL has a fixed, loud, disconnect sound that seemingly can’t be changed. Made me jump a mile after listening to music quietly in bed for 40 minutes. So much for relaxing before sleeping. Suggestion to product development: as this is a personal sound product, no need to have a sound so loud the room can hear when switching off. This sound should be at the same volume that the product is being listened to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice quality sound with nice features I received the soundgear for free about one week ago and was amazed with how well you can hear the music from it while wearing it around your neck. The sound quality however came as no surprise because I already own two flip 4s a charge 3 and even put two pairs of jbl 609c gto Grand Touring component speakers in my sons car and the sound quality of all are really nice. It's really funny that I received the soundgear for free because It caught my eye some months ago when JBL first showed pictures of it on their website. jbl's becoming more well known these days because of their consistent sound quality!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality Bought them as a gift for my husband And he has not enjoyed a gift this much in a long time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really cool product When I received this product I honestly didnt know what to expect. But when i used it, I immediately fell in love with it. It is so comfortable, sound quality is amazing, and its only loud music to the user. Yeah other people around can hear what you are listening to, but the music is low for them to really listen to it. For the user, you cant here anything anyone is saying if u have it on full blast. Its great for chilling around the house without blasting music or me personally go snowboarding and listen to music without having to lug around a big speaker. Overall, great product [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and safer alternative to headphones! I was intrigued upon first hearing about the JBL Soundgear...even though it meant having some speakers hanging by my neck. After thoroughly using the Soundgear around the house and even during some errands and walks in the park, I can say I have come around. The Soundgear creates this personal surround sound atmosphere, allowing you to listen to your music and take calls hands-free while you work or play. The build quality is very good, though I would think a little more flexibility in the joints would be welcome. I think JBL is on to something here, since the Soundgear could make listening to music safer in some instances, like when biking, allowing your music to be heard but also letting you keep an open ear for sounds of trouble, sirens, horns, etc. This would obviously not be for everyone but I think plenty of people will find the Soundgear useful and enjoyable. Also the fact that you're not pumping high-volume sound directly into your ear canal has to be a plus, keeping your ears safe from sound-induced damage.
