    Great for listening to music but not designed for workout

    • Written by from SAN DIEGO

    I got this to see if I can use it with my workouts. I do some running and lifting weights. It is great concept but need some more work. I can almost not use it while running. It comes out all the time. The ear-gels hold them in place for some time but if you sweat like I do, it will come out. the ear-gels get loose pretty easily so now you have to stop and put them back on and then put them back in the ear. They sound great. They pair very easily and it has audio help like "Connected" or "Recharge" etc...
    I would not recommend these headphones for any kind of intense workout.

    Awesome sound quality

    • Written by from Morrisville

    I bought Rox to replace my old Jabra BT-620s.

    This new design is quite innovative. It takes me some time to get used to the way it supposed to wear. You got to find out the suitable ear gel and ear wing for your ear size, otherwise you won't hear bass right. Once you find the right set, you can feel what the title said.

    It is really easy to pair with multiple BT transmitters. At my work place, I got a cheap Plugable brand BT 4.0 adapter in Linux. It works great with Bluez 5 stack. At home, it works great with all my i-stuffs, eg iPhone, iMac, iPad and MBA.

    Good battery life. It can last for my work day. I used it for gym as well. It never falls off or make me uncomfortable. I also love its magnetic design. I can just wear it as a weird necklace without putting it away to my pocket. Believe me. I always find a hard time to look for my earphone when I need it.

    The only one thing needs to improve is its poor phone call sound quality I'm not sure if this is Apple iOS BT profile fault or this headphone caused it. In any case, I can live with it. I don't make phone call that much with BT. My car has BT connected already.

    Jabra Rox, do Rock.

    • Written by from Ripponden

    (01) Lets start with the Tech. We have know reach a point in time where Bluetooth can match
    the sound performance of £100 In-ear headphones. The sound quality is far better than
    Apples In-Ear.
    (02) Jabra Sound. Many have said that the Jabra Sound App does nothing, wrong, it works
    very well, but you have to give it time, be patient and use the custom option to create an
    extremely immersive sound. Straight out of the box the Jaybird Bluebuds X do produce
    sharper highs and a deeper base, but once you have perfected using the Sound App,
    the high-definition Dolby sound makes the Rox the winner.
    (03) Battery. Good, at the highest volume setting I got 5 hours and 27 minutes.
    (04) Comfort and Fit. I am one of the lucky few who has an ear canal that the Rox fit perfectly
    with, I use these for Climbing, Skiing and Mountain Biking, I do not even have to use the
    Ear Wings. For most people this will not be the case, If you are willing to put in the time
    and try out all the combinations, (Ear Buds & Wings) then you will have an 80% chance
    of getting a good fit, these were tried by 8 adults, 1 female and 7 males, these were only
    suitable for 6 out of the 8.
    (05) Design, superior to anything else on the market, the magnetic on off and the pairing is
    great and the stainless steel and Kevlar construction produce a very high quality product.
    and the protection from water and dust is another great feature.
    (06) Faults, they have one design fault, the LED is also a button that is used for pairing and with
    virtually no actuation it is difficult to know if you have used enough force, the first pair we
    got depressed and stayed depressed, the second pair have worked perfectly. Ear buds,
    although you receive 4 pairs in different sizes, this is still not enough, a longer pair would
    have been nice, not wider but longer.
    (07) Results, the Jabra Rox are an 8 out of 10 product for those that can use them.

    Not compatible with iMac

    • Written by from Santa Barbara

    Sound is decent, especial with equalizer. But connectivity is big problem.

    Connection with iMac is very unstable, it takes few minutes every time you trying to use.
    Sometimes it enter endless loop - connected-disconnected.

    Almost had me....

    • Written by from Montgomery

    I was trying to replace my 3 yr old pair of Jaybird Freedoms. They work fine, but the battery life is down to about 2-3 hours. I 1st purchased the Bluebuds X but found that the sound quality and fit were worse than my Freedoms ( so I returned them to BestBuy). I then found the Jabra Rox at the Apple store.

    I took them home and got them set up. Although they looked flimsy, the rubber ear pieces made the headset fit very secure in my ears. The fit was secure and felt good, even later on when I went running.....but I'll get to that. I turned them on and the sound quality was excellent. They far outshined both set of Jaybirds. Very clear, crisp, and not mushy. Exactly what I wanted!

    I sat in my living room very pleased with my purchase. The fit was nice, the sound was excellent, and I now had a set of BT earbuds with a longer battery life! So what happened?!?!?

    That afternoon I went jogging. I placed my phone in my shorts pocket and immediately started experiencing BT connection problems. The songs would stop and start with lots of interference and pauses This went on the entire time I exercised. I went home and started researching and found that this was a common problem. Whether exercising or working outside, I always carry my phone in my pants/shorts pocket. This issue would be totally UNACCEPTABLE!!! So you guessed it...I returned these to the Apple store. This headset started out so well and had so much promise, but a Bluetooth headset with Bluetooth connection problems is NO BUENO

    THE BEST WIRELESS EARBUDS ! (In my opinion)

    • Written by from Friendswood

    Let me start by saying that these are the best on the market in my humble opinion. I first tried the Jaybirds Jaybud X, and I could never get a good fit no matter how much I changed the proposition of the earnings and bud sizes. Not only that but hated how much the earbuds stuck out when in my ear. Now, I will miss the 8 hours of battery and they felt really cheap. I returned the Jaybirds and picked up the Rox, and honestly these were my second choice. First off when I opened the Rox box and tried them out I was happy that they fit better than the Jaybirds right out of the box. As soon as I played with the buds and ear wings I found that the largest buds and the medium wings worked perfect. Now they fit like a glove and love the fit. The ability to connect the buds with the magnet and force them into sleep mode is ingenious. these buds do not feel cheap either, they felt like the they were a quality product, especially compared to the Jaybirds. Don't get me wrong, the Jaybirds are a good set but not for me. I can't say enough about the Rox, if you are shopping for wireless earbuds and can't decide between the two like I was. Start with the Rox It's the safer and better bet. Be sure to play with the bud and wing sizes which is crucial for a great fit. It takes time to get the wings in the correct position and the right size buds , but once you do, you'll never look back. Forgot to mention. Sounds is great and they are very low profile when in. Hope this helps with others decisions.

    Awesome Wireless Handsfree device!

    • Written by

    We loved the Jabra Rox Wireless device! Both my husband and I have used it - both using different eargels and earwings to customize the proper fit for our ears! It was great for taking walks while listening to my music and even taking phone calls handsfree! My husband loved using it around the yard while trimming hedges and mowing the lawn - high sound quality - and safe to use since it is handsfree and wireless free!!

    awful fit, they will hurt after 5 minutes, they will literally fall out my ears without the "wings", cord snags on a sweaty neck yanking them out, not worth the steep price by any means, not even close

    AMAZING

    • Written by from Gaithersburg

    The freedom from wires is worth the price of entry alone. But I also had the Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 to compare against, and these CRUSH them. They are exponentially more comfortable and provide a really nice seal and sound quality, including good bass - not Beats heavy bass, which I don't want, but a good, neutral balanced bass and sound. Bluetooth sound can sometime be tinny, but I don't get that with these.

    Also, the magnetic feature I thought would be useful, but it's a must have now that I've gotten used to it. Buttons work well, it's got a really low profile.

    4 stars only because I wish it had more battery life, but generally 1-2 hr charge when I get into the office and I'm ready to go for a few more days. Hasn't been an issue.

    Good but need design improvements

    • Written by from SEATTLE

    I enjoy low volume audio while bike commuting. The right side although fitting well on the way in kept falling out on the way home. The ear stays are a good idea but a very poor execution. The rubber kept slipping off and would not allow the headphone to say in my ear.

    Sound-wise, these do more than their job. If you use the iOS Jabra Sound app then it's even better. I like the magnet feature that allows the two sides to come together as a necklace when not using them. With so many well thought out features, it's crazy that they did not give the ear stays more thought.

    Easy to use, Great design, Great Sound

    • Written by from Alexandria

    I absolutely love these headphones. Their auto off and auto pair feature with the magnetic lock works wonderfully. I never have any delay in connecting or reconnecting to my phone. The command buttons and inline microphone on the cord are great - although noise cancelling is slightly better on some of the hard wired headphones. The battery lasts an excellent amount of time and includes visual monitor on your phone when paired as well as "recharge prompts" over your music if it gets too low. As far as a secure fit, these are excellent. I have never been able to stand most of the headphones and have always had to use large over the ear clips on my headphones to work out with them. However the ear-wings on these are easy to put on and make puting in the ear quick and easy. They are flexible and comfortable and can run, jump, and everything in between without any budging. The Jabra app also provides a nice boost to the sound, and it is not only an amplifier, but a quality equalizer. It could use some speedy improvements but the sound is above and beyond the itunes equalizer in iOS. Can't go wrong with these headphones

    Excellent, but some pairing issues

    • Written by from New York

    I purchased these three days ago and despite a bit of early trouble once I had them all set up they worked flawlessly.

    For other users who may run into the same issue; the headphones will no longer be visible to other bluetooth enabled devices once they have been paired with one device. To re-enable visibility, follow the instructions on the Jabra website FAQ: "Installation" > "How to I reset bluetooth pairing list on my Jabra Rox Wireless.

    Bought and returned after 10 days

    • Written by from Charlestown

    I bought these the day after they came out with the intent to use them as my go to for work and exercise. I really liked the magnets to act as the on/off of what I'm watching PLUS the potential to power save via putting the headphones on standby with the same action. That was the primary reason I purchased them over others in the category. After 10 days, I returned the Jabra Rox and bought the Jaybird X Premium and I'm extremely happy with that decision.

    Jabra Rox Pro's and Con's

    Pro's:
    - Magnets. A really cool way to manage power and pause / play
    - Switching between multiple bluetooth connected devices is really easy
    - Sound quality is good

    Con's
    - Bluetooth connection is weak. Static when my iPhone 5 is in my pocket. I don't have this issue with other bluetooth headphones
    - Ear wings don't stay on the earpiece when the magnets are connected. I was 3 for 3 in losing earwings while having the headphones in standby around my neck.
    - Without the earwings, my ears grow sore and tired. These headphones are heavy and I couldn't wear them at work for more than an hour. Forget about exercising with them if you don't have the ear wings - they'll fall out in seconds.
    - After day one, the voice commands on the headset went away for no apparent reason. For example, I'd push the button to see how much battery I had and nothing would happen. Could be user error, but I don't think so :)
    - No battery level indicator for the headphones displayed on the connected Bluetooth device. I'm used to being able to check my phone to see how much battery life remains in my Jambox. Not being able to do that here seems like a miss.

    Poor bluetooth

    • Written by from Chatham

    These are only cordless as long as you don't want to move while using them. Even while walking to dog, a slight turn of the head will cause the blue tooth connection to stutter. Very disappointing but after a week of trying to get them to work reliably, it is time for them to go back.

    Has returned the product

    • Written by from Mountain view

    1. It doesn't fit. I've tried all the earbuds and it still slips off very easily.

    2. Connection. Sometimes the connection just breaks for no reason.
    Although Jabra Rox has make the procedure easier, but it still takes much more effort to connect compared to wired earphones.

    3. Magnet.
    The magnet is too weak. The earbuds always split and waste power.

    Conclusion: It just take too much effort to use bluetooth earphones. So I’ve decided to return the product and use my apple EarPods (I like it a lot).

    Really much better than the other reviews suggest - with two caveats

    • Written by from Boston

    I have several BT headphones and buds. I purchased these for the gym and general use. By and large I think the sound quality is better than most other BT buds I've used, and cord length is fine, and the magnets are convenient. For phone use and music I'd say these are the best I've used.
    The two caveats -
    1. The magnets can come apart in a case or bag, and if near your phone can connect without your realizing it. They are not quite strong enough to stand up to running with them hanging on your neck, nor able to lift the front end of a car.
    2. The earpieces for the buds are pretty lame, as they are with most buds these days. If you use some foam tips instead, you can get great isolation and stability in-ear. With these tips I would rate the Rox 5 stars.

    Almost perfect

    • Written by from Warwick

    If you're in the market and want to upgrade to wireless headphones, Jabra hits the mark again.
    Small, sleek and very functional. The sound quality is excellent and the design is the best available.
    Not much I would change here except make the optional wings a bit firmer.

    Awesome!

    • Written by from Astoria

    So, I've had my Jabra Rox wireless (black) headset for about 7 months now, and I must say that I am extremely satisfied with this product. I have been able to work out without worrying about wires hanging around and also the headphones are lightweight and generally comfortable which makes it even easier to use when working out. These must be the best headphones I've ever used.

    Works great

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I purchased these yesterday but so far they work great. These are my first bluetooth earbuds and I found the setup easy and straight forward. Take the time to find the right combination of earbuds and wings before using them full-time. This will save a lot of frustration for you later. The Rox are super light, I can see myself running with these and working out at the gym without any problems. The magnetic clasp works pretty well, these aren't rare Earth magnets or anything but I think it's effective enough to keep them together and "off." I think turning it off via magnet is it's coolest feature. Sound quality is better than expected and they feel secure an sealed in my ears. Like anything try these out for yourself, I'm happy with the sound quality and design and I think most people will be too.
