Battery Life

Battery life is a big deal when it comes to wireless headphones and the JBL Endurance JUMP offers a decent supply of power. It delivers up to eight hours of uninterrupted playtime which is quite impressive for a wireless pair. A great feature is the Speed Charge battery function that gives you an hour of use from just 10 minutes of charging. This is super convenient because I’m always forgetting to charge my devices which means that I end up wasting a ton of time waiting around while my headphones charge up enough to last me through my workout.

The charging cable is a standard micro-USB which is easily replaceable if it breaks. In fact, most people will already have an extra cable lying around their house. Being able to easily replace your cable is a must because it will cost you a ton of money trying to replace a rarer model and will be a real hassle too. If you end up with a broken charging cable you won’t be able to use your earphones at all and will have to wait to find the replacement, but having an easily accessible cable like the micro-USB won’t ever be difficult to replace.

Twist Lock™

You never have to worry about the JBL Endurance JUMP falling out while you train! Its innovative TwistLock™ Technology ensures that they’ll stay perfectly in place no matter which way you bend or move. It works by delicately fitting down your ear canal. Once they feel correctly placed you can lock them in so they won’t move at all. This feature really sets the JBL Endurance JUMP above the competition.

If you’ve ever tried to work out while wearing in-ear headphones then you know all too well how easily they fall out of your ears. That’s why the JBL Endurance JUMP is so popular among athletes of every skill level because they appreciate a secure-fitted listening device.

A FlexSoft™ ear tip makes the Endurance JUMP more comfortable than other designs. It’s more flexible and doesn’t put the same kind of pressure on your ear canal so it won’t cause you any discomfort even after long hours of wear. Most earphones get uncomfortable after just a short time because they put stress on your delicate ear canal which causes painful spots from the sustained annoyance.

PowerHook™

There are lots of different styles of headphones to choose from but not all of them are going to fit comfortably and securely. This is especially true while you exercise because all of the continuous movement makes them fall off. The JBL Endurance JUMP stays perfectly in place thanks to its PowerHook™ technology that offers a secure-fitted hook design.

This innovative technology does more than just keep your earphones in place, it intuitively powers them on/off when you put them on or take them off! This is a handy feature that will save you having to manually operate your device or push any buttons. When you have sweaty hands it’s tough to handle your gear and turn things on or off which is why this is such a great aspect with this pair.

Water/Sweat-Proof

The JBL Endurance JUMP is water/sweat-proof which is ideal for exercising. When you workout it’s inevitable that you will end up all covered in sweat which will ruin your headphones if you’re not careful. Inside of your headphones is all sorts of delicate wiring that will quickly be ruined if it’s exposed to moisture. This is why it’s so important that your gear be waterproof.

There are tons of pairs out there that just aren’t made to hold up when exposed to continued moisture and this will get costly having to replace them so often. The JBL Endurance JUMP is an affordable choice, to begin with, but it’s long-lasting design and waterproof properties only add to the overall value that it offers.

Touch Controls

You can control the JBL Endurance JUMP with, literally the touch of a button. This unique design feature gives you an easy way to operate and control your device without having to physically handle it. Instead, you can play/pause tracks, answer/end phone calls, and even skip to the next song all with a simple combination of button presses.

Simply click the button on the back of the earbud in a certain pattern to relay commands to your device. The box includes a detailed guide which explains the various control commands to you which are super easy to memorize and won’t be an issue at all. This aspect is a real convenience because handling your device while you exercise is a pain. You have to stop dead in your tracks just to operate it and it’s even harder to do with sweaty, slippery hands.

Hands-Free Calling

The JBL Endurance JUMP earphones are perfect for hands-free operation. They operate with touch controls that enable you to control music and calling with the push of a button. Using several easy-to-remember sequences of button pushes you can effortlessly operate your device without ever having to slow your pace. Don’t think that hands-free operation is just for athletes though. It’s ideal for busy professionals who manage multiple tasks at the same time too! Having free hands lets you juggle more tasks at once and is a must while you’re exercising.

Sound

The JBL Endurance Sports packs a powerful punch when it comes to playback. This pair features legendary JBL Signature Sound with Pure Bass performance. These two innovations combine to produce the best playback performance and crisp, clear sound. If you like your bass to thump then this pair is the perfect choice for you! The Pure Bass performance makes for pretty impressive depth and is enough to power you through any exercise routine.

When you think of earphones quality sound isn’t the first thing to come to mind. But, the JBL Endurance JUMP is a good choice and it gives an ideal pitch with every note. This means that you won’t have to agonize through your routine without any music so you can push it more than ever.

Connectivity

Wireless connectivity is a must-have feature while you exercise, plain and simple! Dealing with cords while you practice is a big hassle and will wreak havoc with your performance. This is why competitors turn to earphones that offer Bluetooth technology to seamlessly connect without the bother of annoying wires to get in their way.

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that can transfer data over short distances. It employs unique radio frequencies to create a short range network. This secure network lets you connect up to eight compatible devices all at the same time! Bluetooth is the ideal partner for athletic activities like running, cycling, and even walking.

Size

One downside to this pair is its size overall. Most people think it’s too big and find it’s awkward to wear without having to adjust it continuously. While the JBL Endurance JUMP is a comfortable choice to wear it’s also quite large and won’t be suitable for people with a petite frame. If you want something smaller, the YEVO Air and PowerBeats3 wireless earphones are a better choice.

Bottom Line

Overall, the JBL Endurance JUMP is a great choice for athletic activities. It is perfect for athletes who like to push themselves hard and need a pair of headphones that can withstand the tough wear and tear.
