I have been trying out the Juxxe X1 Jamsports True Wireless Stereo Earbuds for a week now and I have decided that five stars are all I can give them. They are just not comfortable in my ears. Of course, you may have a different ear with a different comfort level.
I tried all of the (3) silicone tip choices and once I found the pair that fit best, I set out to test the stay put factor! I worked up to a fairly rambunctious activity level with the right earbud (the main earbud) popping out twice, but again I was giving it quite the test!! I was all sweaty during the test which didn’t cause any issues with function. It was a bit bothersome that when they do get a little loose, the act of reseating them actuates the tap functions and you can get confused as to what you have done. It is easy enough to get back to where you want to be, however.
|Left earphone||Right earphone|
|Answer or hang up call||1 click||1 click|
|Reject a call||3-sec press||3-sec press|
|Voice assistant||3 clicks||3 clicks|
You can use the right earbud solo if you put the left earbud back in the case. If you leave the left earbud on your desk, walk away, then come back, it will still be working. You cannot use the left earbud on its own.
How do they sound? I tried them using a Samsung Galaxy 8 and an iPhone 10. When playing music, the earbuds sound pretty good. Highs are crisp. I would like richer mids and thicker bass though. The sound while on a call is not as good. The caller sounds hollow. And “you sound weird”, or so I was told by two people that I called. The ambient noise reduction works ok, but TV bleed-through was distracting when listening to music.
How do they connect? You have to remove them from the charging case together then they will automatically pair up and can be detected by your mobile device. Follow the directions for your smartphone’s Bluetooth menu to connect the headphones. Once the connection is made, the LED on both earbuds will turn white. They paired quickly and very well. Both devices I tried connected very well every time. I tested the distance (up to 33 ft) between the buds and the device and found it to be right on par with that stated distance. I put a wall between and was still getting good quality as long as that wall was within the distance. I only had one Bluetooth device at a time so I didn’t try this, but the directions state that you can connect additional devices by pressing and holding the Bluetooth button located on the left earbud until you see the Bluetooth LED turn white or hear the “ready to connect” voice prompt spoken in the right earbud.
I do like the little charging box and it seems to work very well. On a full charge, I listened to music continuously for 2 hours and spoke to 3 people on the phone. The phone conversations were about 10 minutes each. I then put the buds back in the case but did not charge. I came back to them the next day, they were still going strong. I did finally have to charge them after about 9 hours of use. They do hold their charge for quite a few days when not in use.
I think they work best for listening to music or podcasts. As for phone communication, I don’t want to “sound weird” to the people I am calling. But the sad fact of the matter is that I found them uncomfortable. Not painful but I actually couldn’t wait to take them out of my ears.
