JBL E1+ Review

    I want to just give my overall opinion of these earbuds which I've had for about a week now.

    They were way too expensive for what they are worth. Sure, they look good from afar but when they're actually in your hands they feel very cheap, especially the control cylinder with the buttons. I would say these earbuds are just as good as the ones other cell phone brands give out for free with their phones. The sound is nothing special. There is nothing special about the earbuds at all.

    Now what I like about them are the color, the small amount of metal on the backs of the buds, and the flat wire.

    If I were you I'd buy a different pair of earbuds if you're actually looking for good quality and listening experience. If you are okay with giving One Plus some extra money to support their company and get an okay set of earbuds, then buy them! Just know not to expect too much.

    "...sound is nothing special..."

    can you put this relative to some other earbuds? Like as good as klipsch s4, or some other earbud you may have used?

    I'm not sure as to how those sound but these buds sound more like Samsung earbuds or Apple earbuds, which I don't believe have any great bass, highs, or mids.

    i share the same opinion.. this cannot exceed 15$ price tag(considering the inline controls, else 10$ at most for build quality and sound reproduction)

    Exactly, wish they put a little more effort into these. But I guess that's what the silver bullets are for.

    To sum up, youre paying more money just for JBL brand, is that correct?

    i wont say that idea didnt cross my mind :D i will return the unopened one straight to OPO and see if i can sell the other one for even half the price on ebay, even that would be a win for me... :D
