Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Not suitable for vocal-centric or relaxed music, these JBL UA True Wireless Flash are tuned for bass heavy music
  • When using headphones in a quiet room, the amplifier has a slight hiss. This may be the result of a lack of superior codecs like aptX
  • The case is about twice the size of the Apple AirPods charging case and not ideal to fit in your jean’s pockets
  • There is a slight delay when you press the center button and the change occur while playing or pausing the music
  • The Bluetooth connection is not very reliable. Connectivity stutters and occasionally jumps off tracks
  • There are no built-in controls to adjust volume levels and bounce back tracks from earphones, you have to pull out your music player for this
  • They support Bluetooth 4.2 instead of 5.0 and have quite a bit of latency while watching HD movies or playing games
  • You cannot connect UA True Wireless Flash Headphones to more than one device at a time, like other competitors' high end True wireless models
  • They don't have dedicated app support to control music playback, adjust volume levels or EQ adjustments for a personalized listening experience
  • Outdated micro USB charging port instead of the new USB Type-C means that you have to carry an additional cable while traveling
  • Need 2 hours to fully charge the JBL UA True Wireless Flash earphones, as there is no quick charge that can accumulate a workout's battery in just a few minutes
  • The headphones are quite large in size and protrude a bit from the ears compared to some other truly wireless models
