What do you get when you combine a heavy duty aluminum housing, tangle-free flat cables with kevlar reinforcement, eye candy 3D logo details, and an extra tough EVA carrying case? Well you get the JBuds J4 Earbuds, of course. We recently got our hands on a pair of the J4s to try out, so read on to see if this set of earbuds is for you.
First the specs for the J4s:
• Drive unit 2xo8mm
• Frequency Response 20-20khz
• Impedance 16ohm +/- 15%
• Sensitivity (at 1KHZ) 90 +/-3dB
• Cord length: 129cm
• Plug Type: Dia. 3.5mm Stereo Gold Plug
• Max. Power: 3 mW
• Channel Balance:
JLab’s J4s come packaged in their certified frustration-free packaging that is not only easy to get into, but actually IS frustration free: there is no bubble package to tear open, so wave goodbye to cutting yourself or breaking the product when you open it. The J4s are beautifully packaged, and the presentation opening them is a pleasant surprise.
So how about installation? It is as easy as plugging it into your favorite device and boom, your ears are being filled with your favorite song or podcast. The J4s come with 7 pairs of custom molded earbuds cushions to fit any ear comfortably. You could almost say they are a one-size-fits-all set of earbuds.
I plugged the J4s not only into my iPhone, but into my laptop as well, and they delivered quality sound that you would expect from a much higher priced set of earbuds. So what other uses could you use the J4s for? Well, if the device has a standard 3.5mm outlet, you can plug the JBuds J4s in and check out the quality sound for yourself. The J4s are not just a pretty face in the earbud market, but a versatile set of earbuds that will fill all your earbud needs.
This is also one tough set of earbuds. As I mentioned previously, the J4s are not only tangle-free with kevlar reinforcements, but are built to last, with an aluminum housing that can take the constant abuse from either stuffing them in your pocket or throwing them in the bottom of your brief case. The J4s bounce back every time, and continue to deliver quality sound to your ears.
I, for one, am always looking for an affordable, yet comfortable set of earbuds that don’t start to bother your ears after an hour of use. I wore the J4s for almost 3 hours while catching up on my favorite podcasts, and I have to say at times I almost forgot I had them in my ears; they were that comfortable. I also wore them while listening to my favorite music, and I have to say they delivered. From the deep bass to crisp sounds of the singers’ voices, I was very impressed. Priced at $39.95, you may be saying these are out of your price range, but with their limited one year warranty you can’t go wrong, because if any JLab product breaks or is defective, they will replace them for free. All you have to do is register your product through their no-hassle online warranty system, and a replacement product will be shipped to you automatically, free of charge. Do yourself a favor: if you are in the market for earbuds, make JLab’s J4s your next set of earbuds.
