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 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.

My TV requires a 4 digit passcode for pairing bluetooth. Is there a defaul passcode for JBL Soundgear?

Asked by: kj999
There's no pin code required for the JBL headphones when pairing it with any Bluetooth-enabled audio source device. It would normally be the source that is requesting for the pin. Try entering "0000," "1111" or "1234" when your device asks for a PIN. These are some of the most common default Bluetooth PINs.

What's the difference between this model and the BTA version?

Asked by: Doug in Oakland
The main difference between the Soundgear and the Soundgear BTA would be the Soundgear BTA's Wireless Audio Transmitter feature which enables a convenient Bluetooth® connection to the TV to better immerse yourself in a movie.Enjoy a synchronized audio experience as a result of AptX low latency. Using either input optical or auxiliary audio available makes your Soundgear compatible with most TVs.

The alerts, such as the low battery alert, are very loud, and does not correspond to the volume at which the speaker is playing. It is very startling and my single biggest issue with this product. Can these alerts be disabled, or the volume decreased?

Asked by: TAK1
Hi there, our JBL Soundgear's notification sounds cannot be lowered nor disabled. We appreciate the feedback you've provided to us and we'll forward this to the correct department. We're sorry for the inconvenience caused.

This was supposed to be released in spring/early summer and I hoped the delay was to improve the specs but they still seem subpar. $200 for 6 hours of battery life and there's no fast charging? go off i guess
