It's been a few months, so here is a short update. Both headphones are still performing flawlessly. Battery life is insane
... I use mine on the way to and from work (Hyundai speakers are blown, so I use headphones). About 30 mins drive, so 1hr per day, 14 days per month, plus here and there on days off work. Always max volume, still good bass, and I only end up charging once per 45-60 days. If I have road trips, then I'm "forced" to charge once per month lol. Have yet to get less than 2 weeks of battery life with my usage. JBL advertises up to 40 hours of battery life. I've been getting at least that, or even more with lower volumes. Extremely impressed! Price is back up now, but next time they're on sale - I'd advise anyone to get a set. Amazon has them for $29.95
Some of my friends and relatives went through a few sets of brand name earphones due to losing one of the in-ear pieces, or Bluetooth connectivity issues, and so on. Now they finally switched to these headphones and all are extremely happy. What these headphones lack in "stealth" factor, they make up for through sound quality, battery life, flawless performance, and great price tag. And no need to deal with cleaning ear wax out of the in-ear pieces, 🤢... Worth every penny.
