JBL Free is rated out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by GChat from Left bud didn't function properly, had to return. I had the same issues with the left earbud that some others have been reporting: Intermittent function out of the left side with the total duration of continuous music played out of the left side never exceeding 1-2 seconds at a time. I followed the reset instructions with no improvement. Harman customer service setup a replacement for me but it wont ship until they receive my return, so it sounds like it could take 2 weeks to get something in the mail. I haven't had a chance to really listen to these buds so my score only represents the fact that the product I received was a failure, not the performance of a functionally representative sample.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJMighty from Great sound! I bought 3 pairs of these and we are all very impressed with them. I agree with some reviews that at the first "pairing" the left ear cut-out a few times, but I'm hoping that after the 2nd or 3rd pairing this is no longer an issue. It happened particularly with Pandora and hoping that it was my settings under "Cell Network Audio Quality" which was clicked on. It does say that "Music will sound better, but may skip more often". Hopefully this is the issue. I haven't yet tried with other apps and/or call features. Overall, they are very comfortable and much more sound blocking than any earbuds that I have worn before. The buds cover your whole ear and I think that helps some with blocking outside noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JKillam from Impressive! I have owned these for 1-week now and find them AMAZING! Easy connectivity. Very comfortable and much more sound blocking than any earbuds that I have worn. I disagree with some of the reviews that I have read. The first "pairing" the left ear cut-out a few times, but after the 2nd or 3rd pairing this is no longer an issue. I believe what they are referring to is listening to music the way that it was intended to be heard with "great separation" unlike a Dolby surround home theater with 5-8 speakers where you don't hear the full separation. The volume is plenty load as I mowed my yard with them yesterday and not only did they block the mower noise, but sounded great also! the magnets in the charging dock "click in" to the charging pod to give you 4 - 4 hour charges or 16 hours of non-stop music. I an very impressed with these truly wireless Bluetooth earbuds!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tsizzle from Problematic Bluetooth Connection I bought two pairs and both have a huge problem with audio intermittently cutting out in the left ear. It's very annoying and I would not recommend these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Choi from Left Not working, irresponsible Customer Service You will see a number of same reviews below saying left side has connection issue, which is very annoying. no need to explain further. By the way, right side is working well and I am currently using right side only. Customer service representative kindly(?) informed me that Harman doesn't provide international warranty and only covered as long as the product stays in US. (even bought at www.harmanaudio.com) Please keep in mind : never bring headphone outside, then your warranty is gone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sprucegoose from Bluetooth pairing does not work Bought these a few months back and its very difficult to get both the buds to connect. The connection between the buds keeps getting disconnected. Sound quality is good for BT and it's disappointing that the connection is unstable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dani L from Absolute Garbage This product is garbage, and so is Harman Customer Service. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! It does not connect well to your device and the earbuds do not connect to themselves. This product does not work outdoors, and will stop charging for no reason... or arrive not charging at all. If you purchase this product, the company will not stand behind it, even though there are major design defects making it impossible to actually listen to anything for an extended period of time. I first purchased this product a month ago, the ones I purchased did not charge coming out of the store, and with the slight charge I did get it wouldn't connect to my phone. The store I went to was apparently not an Authorized Dealer (how was I supposed to know). They would only exchange for an identical product. Following that exchange, I found issues that are inherent to the design of this product. If there is wind outdoors or you move in a certain direction, the product will disconnect- one earbud from another and from your device. This is a horrible product and the Customer Service is Horrible... Avoid JBL products; they don't back their own merchandise.

I just got these in the mail today, and the left earbud won't connect. How can I get this to pair with the right? The information in the manual is very scant.

Are these earphones able to receive software upgrades? The situation with the audio cutting in and out from one of the earbuds is widespread and there hasn't been an official response regarding this. If there will be a fix in the future or we are stuck.
As of this response, we have not been given any information if a software update is available, or even possible and if it is, on how it can be administered to the headphones.

how do you change the music and control volume
The JBL Free does not feature volume control. To use the track control, you press the button on the left ear one to skip forward and press it twice to go back to the previous track.
