JBL Quantum TWS earbuds reviewed
While JBL may not have the brand profile of some other well known brands. We have found other products made by JBL to be good, well made, nice design and good quality, so we were happy to review them even if some of our testers initially said JBwho?
This product has decent specifications, though a two hour charge time relative to a six hour usage seems perhaps a bit of a drag if you are out for a longer day. Then again it should work if you have to commute somewhere and back, and you then recharge it once you are home again, so you could probably live with this.
Our testers found the blue tooth connection fine but a bit clunky, similarly to get the earbuds to pair with the phone you have to go to Google Play store to go to Fast Pair which requires your google account also. They found this a bit of a hassle, the alternative is to plug in the accessory to your phone, but they did wonder if it could have all been a bit more seamless. They found the sound pretty good, playing a variety of types of music.
The crate that holds the earbuds was found to be a bit clunky and not as elegant or snug as some others that they have trialed. On the other hand the packaging box, printed with soy ink was a big hit for the testers and did positively validate the sustainability credentials that JBL have been aiming to embrace. It was a new brand for several of the testers and they felt overall positive about the product and expressed interest in seeing what else they come up with going forwards.
