First 10 post about "Bose ones". Please comment on the product on this page. Unless you owned both, you're not helping
Please note I have never owned either Bose soundwear or this JBL soundgear, but just wanted to share what i found after researching online.

There seems two major complaints regarding the JBL soundgear.

One is low play time. JBL soundgear advertises 6 hours of playtime but reviews seem to indicate 3~4hours of actual playtime which really compares to the 12 hours of playtime on Bose soundwear.

Another issue is BT connectivity issue where it will have hard time staying connected and beeps constantly after reconnecting.

Someone even mentioned that if you put your connected phone into your pocket, it will cut in/out.

Build quality, comfort level, and sound leakage reported worse compared to the Bose soundwear.


Obviously JBL one much cheaper compared to the Bose product lowest at $150 last year, but it seemed that a lot of the comments here were encouraging purchase of this JBL product with the experience from the Bose product.

I don't think you will get the same experience with this product, and should decide if this product is right for you over the Bose even at the price point.

For me, the playtime really kills it as i would want at least 8 hours from single charge to last me through full day of working hour.
It's worth checking out the Techmoan video before going in on this, even at this price: here it is cued to his conclusions about the JBL. https://youtu.be/Lk4vcqUr2vQ?t=1877

He found it agonizing to wear, very fiddly to control, and the transmitter a bit of a mess, though said everything else was terrific.

I recall when Mr Mobile (YouTube) did his review of the Bose version of this. I like the idea, but not sure why I wouldn't just use a separate speaker when home or why it wouldn't annoy others in public or work situations.

The Bose one is pretty neat. Points audio towards your head.
Can get it plenty loud without it being too audible to the people around you. Something similar to someone blasting headphones anyway.

Kinda nice if it was water/sweat resistant. Would be nicer to wear than on-ear/over-ears while walking in summer heat.

I have the Bose. I would never use it in public or an open office. However, I use it at home when I don't want to annoy my family members with what I'm watching.

I liked the Bose ones when I tried them, and for 54 bucks, why not. In for one.

BTA is Bluetooth Adaptor. This allows you to hook it up to a 1/8" jack or optical cable. I would assume the most common use is for watching TV or playing games with it.

Actually it is not neat. My roommate even bought one after trying mine. They are some unique case:
1. Skiing. When there is wind blow around, people got zero awareness of what you are listening to. I am the man with BGM. You got no idea how high it was when gliding down with a nice rock & roll.
2. At home. It was a little bit heavy but far more comfortable than wearing any headphones (I got Airpods, Pixelbods, and tons of stuff). The Bose one own vibration motor can tell you any income phones.
3. Driving with my friends(especially GF). You can listen to your own navigation, answer your own call without cutting background music off. It is more joyful.
4. Connect multi-device. I always connect it with my laptop but anytime income calls on my cellphone, I could use a bottom to pick up or reject.
5.Siri and Google Assist. Answer any question in 3s if you ask.
6. Low profile. Everybody believes it is a kind of shoulder massage machine, even my boss.

As per the product description:
BTA, Wireless Audio Transmitter

Enables a convenient Bluetooth® connection to the TV to better immerse yourself in a movie. Enjoy a synchronized audio experience as a result of AptX low latency. Using either input optical or auxiliary audio available makes your Soundgear compatible with most TVs.

Seems the BTA is a Bluetooth transmitter you can use on anything with a optical or auxiliary audio output.
