J46BT is rated 2.5277777777777777 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent battery life! Sounds good! I bought them for listening to music in the office and they work well! Battery lasts me most of the day and with them plugged in over night they are always ready to go. Sound quality is not what I expected. There is some electrical "noise" almost all the time. I think most people buy these for working out and so they probably don't notice, but in a quite office setting I definitely notice. Bass is not quite as deep as I would like, but I like more than the average person probably. The sound is well balanced and clear even through the small amount of noise I experience. These are great all around use headphones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall - Buy! I bought these to replace my JayBirds which I treated with not so much care and therefore damaged. Overall these are a great fit. They fit nicely in the ear and stay there during workouts, etc. I love that you can see how much battery life you have left on on your phone screen. It's a great reminder to charge the headphones, although I must say battery life is absolutely amazing with these! I charge them a lot less than my JayBirds. I have two complaints with these: 1) I wish they were louder (although the sound quality is amazing!) and 2) I wish I were able to change tracks (forward or backward) via the controls. Other than that I say for the price, you can't beat the quality!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for listening, terrible for speaking I got the J46BT to replace another old set that got broken after 5 years. Well, from an audio listening point of view I got a huge leap forward but I soon discovered that using this set to make a call is very hard, nearly impossible. The microphone is totally unacceptable. It is invisible, I cannot even say exactly where it is also because the remote where usually it is stored has absolutely no holes for air and sound to pass in a better way. Everybody is reporting me that they are hearing me very far and bad and I have to scream to make them to hear me in an acceptable way. I am very disappointed and I really cannot believe that JBL is releasing a so poor product on the market!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Explain is not enough I'm Korean. I like JBL Brand. So I expected this item even recertified. I bought it for listen to music when I ride bicycle and go to work. I think soud is good! excellent. It is most important. And it has enough battery capacity. But it has 2 weakness. Fitst, i should have charger for only one. second, It doosn't has function of multi pairing. I think this fact is not explained on this site. sorry for this point. But I like this item. Sound is good and I got by low price. Thank you, JBL.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Non-starter I received these headphones as a Christmas gift from my father in law, and I cannot even get them to connect to the charger long enough to charge. I have tried severa different USB charging blocks and computers, but it just won't connect for more than a few seconds. I'm too embarrassed to go to him and tell him that I can't get them to charge let alone WORK, and I don't know where he bought them so an exchange is impossible. Unbeievably horrible quality right out of the box. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. these are exactly as horrible as the other reviews say.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hoped for Better I wanted Bluetooth and compact, and I got that. Pairing and use simple. Controls work well, even with 'non-i' devices (e.g., works with my Windows phone) - something other manufacturers can't seem to figure out how to do! Would have expected better sound from JBL: nice clear highs and mids, but anything below about 150 Hz disappears. The charging mechanism can only be described as a "contraption"; it works, but I'm not confident about its durability/longevity.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from functional i have had for about 3 months...for the cost and JBL name, I am very disappointed. Direction sheet that comes in the box tells you nothing. The so called manual is wasted paper in 3 languages. You have to figure out "how to" by pictures which is great in concept but you quickly discover it is limited. NO info/instructions on the accessories that come with it, like 'how to' change the ear pieces or the proper direction for the orange silicon ear pieces that are suppose to help keep in your ear. And while they don't fall out of my ear, they don't stay in comfortably. I am CONSTANTLY having to push them back in, and all I use them for is to listen to music at my desk while working. Not exercising or any active movement. Sound is high (like listening to a radio with NO bass), my cheep plug in ear buds have a better depth of sound.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound....poor design I've had these earbuds for a few weeks and while I love not having a wire going to my phone, and the sound is fantastic (as usual for JBL products), there is no way to keep these on my ear while working out. I've used them to run and they keep falling out every few minutes, which is extremely annoying. With that, they become useless for me as I bought them just to work out. It would be great if JBL developed some clips for these to keep them on my ear.

Can I skip a song by double click on the pause button?

Asked by: Shifo
Yes. The J46BT has a multi-function power button, located in between the volume buttons that allows you to control music. This is how it works. - Press for play or pause. - Press x2 for next track. - Press x3 for previous track.

i cannot find the device in my phones pairing list even though i pressed the power button for >5sec as stated in the manual

Asked by: kiran
It sounds like the Bluetooth has to reset to put the J46BT in pairing mode again. I would recommend to press and hold the power button for more than 5 seconds until the led blinks red and blue alternately. If this doesn't help, please submit a request at http://www.harmanaudio.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to assist you.
