Bottom Line: A decent budget set of Bluetooth headphones with an innovative feature that allows two pairs to listen to the same source. The build quality, comfort, and sound quality are just not quite there though.

Recommended with reservations.

The Jam Fusion Wireless Headphones are on the budget end of the spectrum for wireless headphones, coming in at just $63 on Amazon currently ($99 list). The headphones offer a modest 6 hour playback time, so make sure they are charged before that long flight.

The headphones do have a decent sound, though they’re lacking a bit in the low end. I must admit that I have a big head but I can only judge comfort by the head I have, and these are too tight to use for any length of time. There is not enough give in the arm to allow the on-ear pads to sit comfortably on my ears.

redMy other issue with these headphones, though considering the price point it’s expected, is that the buttons all feel rather cheap and not put together well. A couple of the buttons on the pair that were sent for review were noticeably out of alignment. Though even with this all buttons worked properly. But the lack of fit and finish give the headphones an overall cheap feel.

I can recommend these headphones only in instances where wireless is a requirement and budget is a concern. In this price range it will be hard to find another pair with comparable specs. Though a good pair of wired headphones with better sound should be easy to find.

Recommended with reservations.
