    I guess I'm going to be one of the lucky ones that gets to pre-order the OPO and get the JBL E1's earphones for that cheap, cheap price of $24.99. I was wondering anyone that's owned JBL earphones in past think it's really worth it? I'm just a cheap guy trying to decide if I should just buy $15 sony earphones off ebay or this, any suggestions??

    I'm mainly planing on using at the gym, just to throw that out there.

    Thanks!

    Own Etymotic er4p, don't think I need these. I know tech has come on but still don't think these will be any better

    Hello,

    got yesterday the JBL E1+.

    Sound is Ok but the look and feel is very cheap:

    - cheap packaging, red/clear plastic box -> a little big and clear side get in short time scratches
    - cheap plastic build quality, less standard for a headset in this price range

    My opinion is, sorry, the price is 10-15 EUR/USD to expensive.

    It's not very good, it's not that bad either, but that's my opinion.

    I agree with this. For 40$ USD, I expected a much better build quality than cheap red plastic. I do commend them on the presentation though, it looks nice, but I don't care about that. The flat cable is a nice touch, I don't have to worry about tangling anymore. The remote is a little big for me, while the buttons are too small - I'm having to always look down on the remote to figure out which button I'm pressing or if I am even pressing the buttons.

    Sound wise, I find the JBL waayyy too bass heavy. I listen to electronic most of the time, and I do have dubstep songs which I enjoy with the bass being clear, but the JBL bass sounds rather washed out, and loud. The mids are meh, they're okay I can't say much about it. The highs though (I listen to a lot of female vocals), are just not there.

    .... and here's me wishing I'd ordered them over the new One Plus branded ones. They really are pretty poor headphones in my opinion.

    you're comparing a 30$ pair of headphones with a 300$ one?

    Just why?

    With the build quality of the E1+, that information makes me sad.
