JBL Endurance Sprint Waterproof Wireless In-Ear Sport Headphones
There were not many wireless Bluetooth sports headphones available in the market a year ago under $50. Of Course, There were many generic headphones available with no brand name on Amazon, but a wireless Bluetooth sports headphone from a brand was more likely to cost $80 or even more.
JBL has launched the new Endurance Sprint wireless sports headphone which is comfortable and securely fit into the ears. Endurance Sprint sounds great as long as you get a tight seal. It has in-built touch sensor control on the earbuds. These are fully waterproof with an IPX7 rating that means it can be immersed into 3feet deep water for up to 30 minutes.
Endurance Sprint wireless workout headphones have a very unique and different design in comparison to a lot of in-ear wireless sports headphones. The feather wing design works as the stabilizers that clasp into the inner part of the ear to keep the earbuds in place.

JBL Endurance Sprint wireless headphone comes with different sizes of ear tips and ear hooks. These ear tips and hooks are optional, and you can use it as per the size of your ears. The ear hooks are designed to keep the earbuds in place while you work out or run, simply when you’re not sitting still. The ear hooks are great and have a correct amount of flexibility and softness which makes it hold on to ears without disrupting your comfort.
It looks like the modified version of the popular Beats Powerbeats 3, which has a hook that cape over the upper part of the ear, but the power beats 3 costs three times more than this earbud.

The earbud’s ear tips and set of notched silicone “enhancers” which cover the base earbuds. You have to insert the buds at the downward angle into the ears and then twist the enhancer upwards to lock the buds in place and the hook goes over your ears.
JBL has named it Twistlock technology and it works great and surely provides the tight seal. The earbuds don’t fallout from the ears, the hooks keep it one place. You have to physically take the buds out to remove it from the ears.

JBL Endurance Sprint has magnetized hooks that join both earbuds to each other when not in use. You can leave the headphones hanging around your neck and forget even if you are wearing anything. The magnetic necklace-type shape also makes it secure from falling and breakage. That’s why it is loved by people, You can just stick the buds and leave it around the neck. This necklace-type look allows you to hang your earbuds to your clothing or a strap on a backpack.

In the JBL Endurance Sprint Review, The touch sensor seems to be responsive but also a little critical. You can play or pause the music with one tap and also answer or end calls by one tap. You can skip the track forward by double-tapping on the right earbud. You can’t skip the music track backward. The volume can also be controlled through the sensors but I preferred to control the volume levels through the phone. The volume controls get a little complicated on the bud’s touch sensors. Sometimes the music accidentally gets paused while adjusting the buds.

Great Performance for a budget Bluetooth Sports Headphone
JBL Endurance Sprint has a decent battery life of 8hours which is great for wireless Bluetooth earbuds. It has a quick charging feature, it provides 1 hour of playtime from just 10 minutes of charging. The quick charging feature is now added to all the standard wireless headphones.
Endurance Sprite is a great sounding wireless earbud for the price value of less than $50. There are no other in-ear wireless sports earphones available in the market which sounds any better than this. There is some boost present in the treble, but it has a good amount of well-defined bass with decent sound clarity and openness. These earbuds sound better than the JBL Reflect Mini 2.
JBL Endurance Sprite is a decent wireless earbud for making calls, but you should not expect a business class performance at this cheaper price.
JBL Endurance Sprint is the least expensive wireless earbud in the JBL’s Endurance Flagship. There is JBL Endurance Jump which has a rigid neckband-style design at the price under $40 and JBL Endurance Dive which features built-in memory to store mp3 files and take them for swimming at the price under $90. Bluetooth connectivity doesn’t work underwater so if you have songs stored in the headphone itself you don’t have to worry about the transmission back to a Bluetooth-enabled device.
If you’re not a swimmer, the low priced Endurance Sprint in-ear wireless headphones are the best choice for you. It is surprisingly great wireless Bluetooth sports headphones under $50.
