Whether you’re on the trials for a run, or listening to a podcast while you work these bluetooth enabled headphones connect with iPhone and Android devices to deliver up to 24 hours of clear, rich sound.

What people are saying
We all know how important it is to read customer reviews before you online shop. Amazon's customer rating system and detailed customer reviews help you feel good about your purchase and can save you money from products that don't live up to their hype.
The JBL Free Truly Wireless earbuds have earned more than 6,000 customer reviews and a respectable 3.6-star rating. While these earbuds might not live up to an audiophile's expectations (or cost hundreds of dollars) they're ideal for anyone looking for a comfortable fit and hours of playtime without the bells and whistles.
"Awesome for running and walking because they do not fall out," one shopper wrote. "Talking on the phone is challenging if you are in a noisy environment, but overall, they're great value for the money. I definitely recommend this product. I do wish that you could adjust the volume with them. But that can only be done with your phone."
"Very comfortable in the ear. They stay in, even when jumping around," another wrote. "They have good sound quality and it's super simple to pair with your phone. The phone calls are good too, but the battery life is quite short. There's no volume control built into the bud, but overall a good earbud for working out or commuting."
If you're not too picky about brand name or popularity, the JBL headphones might be for you. These easy to use earbuds are designed to be worn for a long time and to help carry you through your day-to-day activities including work-outs.
While they may not have the same kind of following as some of the more expensive brands, they're a relatively low-risk investment for $70.
