JBL Endurance Sprint Review

JBL is a well-known brand in the consumer sound industry, and they make everything from car speakers to home theater systems to headphones. It turns out that JBL has been around since 1958 and makes products for pretty much every niche you can think of.

The Endurance Sprint, as its name suggests, is a Bluetooth sports headphone and is designed with active people in mind: it’s both sweat-resistant and waterproof. It comes with a fabric carrying case for transportation and storage, along with two different sizes of eartips so you can customize your fit.

The right earbud has touch controls for power, volume up/down, and skipping tracks forward or backward. I found the buttons to work reliably but had issues with the touch interface at times. The pause/play button can also be used to answer incoming calls. In addition, JBL includes a shirt clip and an armband that can hold your phone while you’re running or biking.

In terms of drawbacks, the buttons took a little getting used to and there was some minor presence boost in the upper frequencies that gave female voices a slightly unnatural tone (although not nearly as bad as many Beats headphones I’ve tried). But overall, considering the comfortable fit, secure grip, and good sound quality, the JBL Endurance Sprint is an impressive set of Bluetooth sports headphones.

The Bottom Line: JBL Endurance Sprint is a surprisingly good wireless sports headphone for low price range, with only a few small downsides.
