I'm incredibly disappointed with these earbuds. The sound quality was fine but they stopped playing through one of the earbuds within a month and a half. I took great care when using them, I never wrapped them up, and I was always sure to not put strain on the cords. It would be bad enough if these were a s*** $5 pair of earbuds, but these are $40 earbuds marketed as heavy-duty and extra durable. The warranty claims they do not cover damage after they have been received, but clearly something is wrong in the first place if they're breaking in less than two months with non-intensive use. I will not purchase anything from JLab ever again.
I keep purchasing these year after year, and they keep lasting less and less time for me despite using them the same amount and the same way each time. I'm not sure what's going on with their manufacturing -- when I was initially purchasing these, they lasted forever. The last pair I bought before my post recent purchase was in February of 2016 and one of the buds arrived not working. I returned it to amazon and ordered another pair in July which just died today (November). Not even 6 months of use!
They are good, sturdy feeling earbuds, but it seems like the "rugged" label of these is becoming more for show than it is true.
Right out of the box, I could tell it has a higher build quality than the previous JBuds. The flat cable feels very "solid" and the buds themselves are built stronger. The J4s are much heavier than the J3s and previous earbuds; if you are looking for lightweight, J3 is the way to go. My main concern about the build of these earbuds is how long the flat cable will last, much like the Beats earbuds by Dre. I think if the flat cable near the base bends too much from being in your pocket or the like, it will sever easily.
Onto audio quality. For the $30 that I shelled out, the J4s are a GREAT deal. I have only burned in for about 6 hours, but the bass is very "boomy," meaning they are strong and resonate well. I would have to disagree with one of the other reviews here; the mids don't sound actually that great for me. The mids are good, but not absolutely great; they can be muddied out by the bass sometimes. The treble is not nearly as high as the J3s, which are known for being...
