  • Neat Accaesory For Framers
    Reviewed by hitsuyoo - May 15, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I didn't think I'd much care for these, being that I'm a big true wireless wearer and have always been a fan of over the ear style headphones. The Jbuds Frames are new idea that won't set well with everyone in the eye glass wearing community. But for those with an open mind and pentiant for trying new things,(relatively affordable new things, that is.)these should be worth a look. I found that the initial setup was a little iffy, but it seems Jlab has foreseen this and tells you how to fix it in the trouble-shooting section of the Quick starting guide. After setup though, they go to work just fine. The sound is thrown to your ears, givng you the ability to still hear the world around you with no muffle. Since the JBFs are attatched to your glasses, they aren't inside your ear. I personally enjoy the silence( let me know if you got that reference) of earbuds and over the ear, noise cancelling headphones, but this was and is a comfortable change. If you're one of those types who like to take on speaker phone like a Kardasian, this is right up your ally too. Because people are able to still over-hear your business. That's my main drawback. The look is a little odd, but so wereearly bluetooth ear pieces, until people got use to them. they don't way down my glasses as much as I thought they would so that's a plus and there's an 8 hour charge. So all in all, I think they're a neat idea that stands to only get better. I'd recommend these because they aren't very expensive at all and I think they're worth a try, if you're an eyeglass or sun glasses wearer.

  • Sound OK, Not Universal Fit, Odd Look
    Reviewed by gadgeTT - May 22, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Pros: * Lightweight. * Good battery life. * Magnetic charging with provided cable. * Tactile buttons. * Sound OK (but not great). Cons: * Din’t fit my frames and tended to pop off. * Cannot fold frames with product attached. * Proprietary charging cable required (provided, though). * Button functions are complex. * Looks really odd. Summary: I love always having music playing in the background. Normally I have music in every room of the house when everyone at home is up. If using headphone, I like to be aware of what’s going on around me so I typically wear some sort of headphone that doesn’t completely block my ear. When outside, that is usually a pair of sunglasses with built-in speakers in the sides of the frame. That’s great if outside in the sun, but what about when inside and wearing eyeglasses? That’s where the JLab Jbuds Frame come in. They essentially transform your own sunglasses or eyeglass frames into music devices. Think of them as true wireless earbuds that mount on the sides of your own frames instead of sticking in or hanging on your ears… just like those sunglasses that I mentioned but instead of being built-in, they mount to just about any frame of your choosing. In theory, that’s great! In practice, these just don’t live up the promise. They have fixed molded hooks that are supposed to clip onto the sides of your glasses. I tried my regular eyeglasses, my readers that I wear over contacts and even a pair of regular sunglasses. The hooks didn’t fit on any of them securely. That right there is enough of dealbreaker because if they won’t mount on your frames, they cannot really be used. But let’s say they do fit on your frames, you probably won’t be able to fold the sides in with the JBuds attached, either. They also are questionable in the fashion department, too. I’m not sure I’d want to wear these out of the house, but that’s just me. They’re not all bad. If they do fit on your frames and you don’t mind not being able to fold the sides in with them mounted and you can get past their odd looks, they do work as advertised. They sound OK if slid all the way back so that they essentially touch your ears. They don’t sound great, but they work for background audio. The true wireless aspects functioned as expected in that they paired easily, reconnected easily, and didn’t loose connection during use. There is a tactile button on each bud which is good, but the function of each button is complex. At least they both turn off by turning off either one, but aside from that, the basic functionality is something you’d really have to memorize. Single press the right button to raise or the left button to lower the volume. Double press the right button to play/pause or the left to invoke your phone’s voice assistant, etc… Battery life was good but not awesome considering their size and the fact that many other true wireless earbuds at half their size have similar battery life. When it’s time to charge them, you must use the proprietary magnetic cable. It’s nice that the cable can charge both buds at the same time, but if you loose or don’t have the cable handy, you’re out of luck. Overall, an OK effort for a very niche product, but there is a LOT of room for improvement - especially in the way they attach to your frames. I would much rather use other types of product (like a speaker that rests on my collarbone) instead.

  • Very cool
    Reviewed by Maclemoor - May 16, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Putting them on my glasses and shades are easy. However if you have frames with really skinny arms (the part that goes around your ear) then there are small plastic/rubber pieces that you will need to use for gripping purposes. Setup was easy. Just pair with Bluetooth. Very cool feature, you can use and pair only one at a time if you don’t want to use both. The sound is sub par but enough. At 100% volume other people can hear the sound ok and you can hear the music and or others when talking. I prefer not have in ear headphones when around other people so that I can hear others and stay aware.

  • Unique item
    Reviewed by Dr Mango - July 24, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I would put this in a similar category of earphones for those who don't want something inside of their ears. I used them while studying and it was nice because I wear glasses while studying for reading and the blue light blocking. I would not wear these at the gym or while running. These could be worn at work too. The little rubber feet that go onto each prong seem like they can get lost easily so be careful. They help prevent the device from slipping off of the frames. Overall I think these are a good alternative to bone conduction earphones. If someone was sitting next to you and you have the volume loud they can hear what you are listening to.

  • Great Concept at affordable price
    Reviewed by TechGuru - May 14, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Lab Frames is a great alternative to high end open-ear audio without the need of purchase prescription glasses or limited to frames. Concept of clipping the ear buds to the existing glasses (sunglass or prescription glasses) at an affordable price. What’s in the box: 2 Bluetooth modules labelled L/R that clips to the frame, carrying pouch with string, 4 small silicone sleeves, user manual, proprietary dual magnetic USB cable. Setup is fairly easy. Just turn on both the modules, press and hold buttons for few seconds at once, and you will hear a voice prompt that its ready to pair. Just open the phone Bluetooth settings to connect to JLab JBuds Frames. Solid lights will indicate the successful pairing status. Each module can be operated individually also. There is only one physical multipurpose button on each module that functions as power on/off, volume down, voice assistant features, changing tracks and for answer phone calls. Design of JBuds Frames is good and doesn’t need you to purchase separate frames. The 16mm dynamic drivers face backwards and is angled towards the ear and the microphones and magnetic charging ports on the side. Left button with single press decreases the volume and right button with single press increases the volume. Double press the button on the left module activates the SIRI or Ok Google and whereas Play/Pause on right button. If you need to skip tracks backward to the music, then press and hold 1 sec on left side and for forward track same with right side. To answer the calls, you will just single press the button on right side and to hang up double press. To reject incoming calls, press and hold right button. To power off, press and hold either buttons for few seconds until you hear good bye voice. Triple press on both buttons will change EQ settings like Bass boost. Attaching and removing to the frames is easy and if the frames are very thin, you would need to attach the included sleeves for a comfort fit. Sound quality wasn’t so bad. Don’t expect great bass. Initially, music sounded little low until the modules are pushed closer to the ears. Only issue is you can’t wear them in crowds on high volume as the people around you will hear the music. Its great for indoors, where you want to hear your notifications or to music without having to plug your ears with earbuds. Call quality is great at indoors. Microphone works well and the opposite end caller was able to hear loud and clear with little distortion. Not tested on taking calls on a crowded outdoor environment yet. Battery life is advertised to last 8 hours per charge for each module. If you are travelling, you would need the included USB cable to recharge the devices as it attaches magnetically and doesn’t support other USB cables. + Battery life + Easy clip on to existing frames + Affordable - Not compatible with thicker frames -Proprietary short charging cable Overall, great concept of using existing frames at an affordable price if you are in the market for open-ear Bluetooth audio frames.
