Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL INSPIRE 500 I bought the JBL Inspire 500 earbuds a few weeks ago. These are by far the best earbuds made. They fit perfectly, the sound is perfectly clear. Very well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Bluetooth Buds! I just started running again as part of a weight loss effort. I did my first run with ear buds plugged into my phone and it sucked. I couldn't wait to try some bluetooth ear buds. I saw these at the Target and they were the most reasonably priced ones there. Not cheap, but not outrageously expensive. Also, so many other BT buds looked HUGE-but these 500's looked like regular ear buds. I took them home, charged them up, and paired them up with my phone. They sound great! I wish that they were a little bit louder, but as they are, they're certainly loud enough! I used them on a flight and they blocked all the plane noise out and all I heard was my music. Cool! I am really quite pleased with my purchase! JBL and Harman (What? No more Karden?) are arguably the best names in audio and they certainly showed it with these ear buds. I'm glad to have purchased them! Thanks for reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the price!! I have large ear openings and headphones always fall out. I happened to see these at Target and decided to give them a shot. The sound is decent, they are not $200 earphones, but there is a little bass, not all treble. Best of all they stay put, I don't mess with them at all during my hiit, cardio and weight training. I think you have to have a certain type of ear for these to work, and I guess mine are just right!!! Love them!!!! I don't think these are good for small ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing headphones for $50...just plain amazing 9/10 - Overall Rating 8.8/10 - Sound Quality 11/10 - In Ear Fit and Staying in Place (Unbelievable!) 10/10 - Overall Product Weight and Ergonomics (They're light and feel well built) I'm a bit of an audophile and always have been so I was a little nervous about spending only $50 on a pair of headphones but MAN was I wrong, amazing deal, I'd buy these again without a doubt. I don't ever leave reviews but since these have no reviews on JBL's site I had to let people know. Absolutely amazing headphones for $50, I have never ever heard a pair of headphones that sound this good for this price point. I have small ears and have ALWAYS had a problem finding headphones that stay in my ears even with light activity such as casual walking, I'm always readjusting other earphones because as soon as they slip a little all of the sound quality vanishes and I have to put them back in my ears. When I saw these were made for people with smaller ears I had to give them a shot. Bluetooth works flawlessly so far, easy pairing. Sound quality is a 8.8/10. They aren't $200 headphones so no, they aren't a 10/10 on sound quality but the sound is round and extremely solid, like one expects from JBL products. I've always loved JBL but occasionally I buy a product of theirs I don't love for some reason OTHER than sound quality and that's not the case with these. These sound is great, good bass, good mids and good highs but don't expect the sound quality to blow you away, it's great sound, but not amazing. I would have been totally happy paying $80 for these, no doubt about it. Unfortunately this genius design (Twist & Lock or whatever they call it) for keeping your earphones in place isn't available on a "higher quality" earphone set that JBL offers so I was willing to buy the less expensive ones. I'm a big proponent of spending the money the first time when you buy something like this and was expecting to spend roughly $125 - $175 for a great pair that would last me a number of years but I could not be happier. PLUS they're only $50 bucks so I won't be upset if I ruin them somehow, win win! Buy these headphones, I promise you'll be happy with them.

My headphones had been working great for the past two months, but today will not connect with either of my devices. Is there a hard reset that I can do?

Asked by: maggiekaye
Same problem can't pair with any of my devices. Had these ear buds for 2 months can't pair with anything I tried everything even what customer service said & nothing wish I had read the reviews before. Now a waste of money! Anyone reading do not buy all the bad reviews are true don't waste your money!

When unit is turned off LED is a solid blue light that stays on, is this suppose to happen? Assuming this would drain the battery and does not make any sense. Could not find any answers reading through the support faq booklet.

Asked by: Amy G
Solid blue light is an indicator that the headphone is currently connected through bluetooth. The LED indicator if the unit is in power on/off state is a fast blinking white light. Please try pressing the center button for 2 seconds to power on/off the INSPIRE 500. If this doesn't help, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and our Customer Service team will be glad to assist you.

Purchased item less than a week ago, battery drained in less than 2 hrs at the gym. Went to recharge and notice LED light does not display, tried from outlet and PC and light does not appear. Plus remote gets really hot to the touch when plugged in.

My buds are connecting to blue tooth on my phone but the sound will not come through. I've tried connecting, disconnecting, forgetting the device, etc. and I don't think it's a bluetooth problem. Any help is appreciated, I've only had them since December!

Asked by: Katie G

- Is discoverable on both iphone and mac book air - but will not enter pairing mode - solid blue light stays on

Asked by: andylooe
Please make sure that the INSPIRE 500 is in pairing mode. Put your INSPIRE 500 in pairing mode by pressing the power and volume up button for 3 seconds while it is on. The light indicator should start blinking blue quickly. Turn ON the Bluetooth of your device and connect to the INSPIRE 500. I noticed that you are in Europe. If you are still experiencing issues with your INSPIRE 500, please contact the store where you purchased it and they will be able to help.

What is the maximum Bluetooth range of the headphones when you for instance connect it with an iPhone? Are we talking about having to carry the iPhone on your body, or is is possible to step a few meters away from it? (I want to use it while working out)

Asked by: Leonie1994
Reception of Bluetooth can be heavily influenced by surrounding environment. If your product offers stable streaming performance when phone and Bluetooth device are in the same room, with no large objects blocking the line of sight, then your product is performing as specified. Please note that Bluetooth cannot pass through your body. So when used outside, it is recommended to wear or place your Bluetooth source on the front of your body to reduce the potential signal blockage from your body.
