Today we will be taking a look at the Jam Transit Bluetooth wireless stereo headphones. The Jam Transits boast to have amazing sound reproduction,style, and great comfort. Do these $49.99 wireless headphones live up to the hype find out by continuing reading or watching the video above as I review the headset.
To get started lets take a look at what I did not like about the headset. I want to state that these “cons” are not big deal breakers but things that I just felt it either needed or lacked. First up is the headsets don’t fold like you see in most other headsets these days. While this is not a huge deal because they are not that big to begin with it still would have been nice to add a hinge to be able to fold for better portability. I also would have liked a hard cover carry pouch, or cloth bag to carry the headsets in vs the plastic casing it came in. But at least it came with something. During playback of some songs I do wish the headset had more treble but it wasn’t terrible that it made things unpleasant just could have been a little more. I know that the Jam Transit’s are advertised as wireless headphones but it would have been nice to have a wired option for times when you might have forgotten to charge the headset. Like I said above these are all minor gripes for me that I just had to get out of the way. On to what I like about the headset.
The Jam Transits are extremely light weight. So when you are wearing them on your head or just have them stowed away in a bag they don’t add lot of extra weight. Not only are the headsets lightweight they are comfortable and fit nicely on the head. The ear cups don’t hurt after long use like other on ear headphones. This is just a pleasant surprise as it makes for longer music listening sessions.
The controls being on the side ear cup of the headphones make for quick access of changing songs, pausing or resuming tracks, and tuning volume without having to take your phone or MP3 player out of your pockets. Along with that the Jam Transit also pauses the music whenever you have a incoming call, and resumes when call is finished or done ringing. Answering a call is simple as well just click on the play button and it will answer the call. So if you haven’t by now figured it out you don’t have to take the headsets off to take calls. You can take the call from the headset with its included hidden speaker phone. So listening to music, taking a call, and back to music is a simple and uncomplicated.
Advertised on the back of the packaging states that the Jam Transit has a 30 foot range. While I did not break out the measuring tape the headphones do give a pretty good range of distance as long as there are no walls in between you and the headset. Going from one room to another the distance was greatly shortened.
When they advertised superb bass I was kind of skeptical as the headsets are pretty small, the price is low, and from my experience most headphones are average in this department, even higher priced headphones. I was shocked when I tried them out for the first time. The bass on these headphones give a lot of higher priced headphones a run for their money. The bass give you that nice smooth solid thump that you want out of bass, while other headsets give you that muddy sounding bass.
Finally the price is right, for $49.99 I don’t think you can find a better pair of headphones at this price range of lower. So I have to give the Jam Transit Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headphones 2 thumbs up and I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a small wireless headphones that are comfortable, convenient, provide good sound, and don’t break the bank.
