UA True Wireless Flash review: Excellent totally wireless sports earphones with only one flaw

The Flash's charging case (top) vs. the charging cases of the Anker SoundCore Liberty Air (left) and Apple AirPods (right). Sarah Tew/CNETYou might get slightly better call performance from Jabra's Elite 65t, which lists for the same price as this headphone, but overall The Flash worked well for making calls

JBL UA True Wireless Flash

Unfortunately, they won’t be great for watching videos due to their very high latency, and some may feel like four hours of battery life isn’t enough for a single charge. On the upside, they also offer a 12-month subscription for Under Armour’s fitness app called MapMyRun.

JBL UA True Wireless Flash X Review

The audio performance is bass-forward and powerful, which will likely appeal to those motivated by powerful bass during workouts. The lack of an app with EQ is a bummer, but really, it's the only one to speak of. And so like their predecessor, the UA True Wireless Flash X earphones handily earn our Editors' Choice for exercise-focused in-ears

Good for the gym but that's about it. Jabra elite 75t are a better choice.

I was really looking forward into falling in love with them but unfortunately there were too many compromises. I got these earbuds and there are many great things and not so great I have to say about them . Pros: Amazing fit IPX7 water resistant Great battery life Good built quality Cons: No ANC No ...

Worth every dollar

I use these as workout headphones and they are phenomenal. I have very small ear holes and struggle with any in ear buds but these stick in there better than your mom to my zipper. I go on 30min+ runs and then hit the gym harder than my step dad used to hit me for 2+ hours. And this is almost daily ...

Jbl just can’t get it right

If your looking for a quick answer, it’s a no go. If you want to know why..... Jbl just can’t deliver on the sound. These things at max volume are considerably underwhelming. They are advertised for working out but if you were running on a treadmill you would barely be able to hear your music let al...

Now that I've figured them out, I like them!

I've never been a fan of in-ear buds as those I've used in the past have either been painful to wear for long periods of time or never stay in place. So until this pair I've always used the earbuds with an over-the-ear loop attached to them. But I took the chance and was quite disappointed at first ...

Fine Gym headphones with a few issues

I've been using these daily for a week now, I'm going to give a quick essential summary. -Sound quality is fine, but not great. It's not much better or worse than any other Bluetooth set I've used. -Comfort is the real stand out of these headphones. They fit super nicely in my ears, and they don't f...

Earbuds disconnects frequently

I bought them for since they have great water/sweat resistance for my workouts. The sounds quality is great. The two issues that I have with them are: 1. It can take a few attempts to get them to connect to the blue tooth. I had to delete and re-add it a few times. 2. When listening to music or vide...

Can get So much better for So much less!!

These sound... OK and for price eh. $50 KZ blow these Totally out of water in terms of sound quality and volume. The other features are nice but if barely hear earbuds... are totally irreverent.
