Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity and comfort! These are by far the best earbuds I've bought so far! I was already in love with my JBL E15's but these top the E15 earbuds just a but in overall clarity. The highs and mids seem to have even more separation. Bass is just as strong as the E15's. The cords are all made of similar durable materials compared to my e15 earbuds. The aluminum housings don't add any real weight but they look really good, the built in Mic and one button remote work great and whole surface with the JBL logo is one big button so its easy to use. Also the included carry pouch is a nice fabric material. Overall if your looking to every last ounce of detail out of your music give these a shot. I recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impress! I recently got this in-ear headphones and so far i am very impress! they sound a lot better than UrBeats! I have yet to test out the durability on this, but it looks like it will last a while till it breaks. definitely recommended ! It is just too good to be true for its price! One thing i would like for the next generation, would have wished the rest of the wires was also reinforced, like braided as the rest of the wire. But so far, fantastic headphones! (in-ear!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really impressive sound quality! I already have these in blue and wanted to get them in black as well. The audio quality is really good on these,the clarity is notch above the JBL E15's in my opinion. The highs and especially the mids all have an added presence that makes music sound more realistic, bass on the other hand seems to be about equal if maybe a hair better which I'm fine with since the E15's had plenty of low end. The other thing I noticed was how well these respond to better a DAC. These go from sounding good to WOW do these sound good! They don't sound overpowered like so many earbuds tend to do when they're fed a more powerful audio signal. Other little things I like is the button control. Its a nice finished, well thought out button instead of looking like a cheap add-on, it works and feels clicky yet smooth if that makes sense. The included carry pouch is also made from a durable fabric material instead of a fake leatherette or thin fabric. Also the packaging is also pretty impressive to as it does a great job of displaying the product before you actually open it. So overall these are really good and worth the price, I'm really happy that JBL continues to make wired earbuds, I find bluetooth earbuds to be clunky and bulky for what they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable value and performance I bought these mainly for light listening duty that I do on my laptop or phone when I don't want to pull out my hi fi headphones. Also for use when making calls and traveling. I'm already a JBL fan owning high end JBL Synthesis products. These are remarkable little value earbuds in my opinion - I don't really like earbuds generally but recognize them as a necessary evil of modern playback and devices, but these are actually remarkably comfortable (with the right tips in) and the sounds is seemingly quiet neutral, reasonable 'soundstage' and spacing for in ear headphones, detailed but not harsh, musical, reasonably efficient, dynamic! etc. Well done JBL As a high end aficionado, I actually can live with these quiet happily for what I need from them. Excellent all around with one small exception, the fabric that covers most of the cable and reduces microphony (one thing I HATE from earbuds) doesn't go all the way up - the exposed rubber portion closes to the ear buds causes some stethoscope effect sadly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE! I had been looking for high-quality, lasting earphones for awhile.. but NOT blue tooth. I'm so sick of the blue tooth headphones being the only high-quality options! I am never paying that much for headphones. Plus I do not use my phone or any other blue tooth device. I have an awesome & tiny portable mp3/digital radio that does everything & I can use it everywhere, including while I'm at work. Anyway, I needed something worthwhile and the JBL Live 100 earphones do not disappoint!!! After I bought my partner the JBL Charge 3 (portable wireless speaker) and he was so happy with it, I decided to look to JBL for quality earbuds, too. I couldn't be happier with this purchase! Local retailers had nothing to match this quality. Not only did I buy the JBL Live 100 earphones for myself in the black, but I also bought a pair for my partner in the green! We both love them!! (And they both look great.) Great product and high-quality you'd expect from JBL. Excellent JBL sound quality you can count on, durable design, and great features. They also include 3 different sized earbuds to help you get the right fit. And they are reasonably priced, which makes these a winner. If you're looking for high-quality earphones that won't break the back, aren't bluetooth, and will last.. try these!! You will not be disappointed. Thanks again, JBL!

Product Q&A

Does the input plug come bent or is just to show that its flexible?

Asked by: YungBans
It is somewhat bent. its bent a little bit, not like the other in-ear headphones that has a L shaped plug. Its more of a Banana bent shaped if that make sense.

Does it have a slider clasp to hold the wires going to each earbud? I bought the Tune 205 headphones and they do not have a slider to help manage the wires.

Asked by: jb1234
I would still prefer to have a slider clasp so that one earbud isn't hanging below my waist when I put the other one in my ear.

I just received these. The sound quality is really good, but one side clicks when I push it into my ear. This is the side that has the mic on the cord. Is it supposed to do this? If so, what is this for?

Can I use it for karaoke singing

Asked by: Malcolm3
No, since the built-in microphone will only output the sound to the earbuds. It won't output to an external speaker.
