Jam Audio have several pairs of true wireless on offer at several price point to suit peoples pockets which is nice and in this game in most instances you get what you pay for when it comes to feature set and so on but these do well in the audio department more so than being a fully featured pair of true wireless earbuds which for most will be just right.

The Live free comes in at around 80 euro which is a hard area to find good earbuds as the cost to performance ratio has come down in the earbuds department but as I said they excel in the sound department but lack some features on the control department but having said that it is the common features missing like many others and not a huge caveat overall for the majority of people looking to buy some new earbuds.

These have a small profile yet fit tight and snug giving you some noise isolation but these have no ANC on board but when these are turned up to full volume you wont be hearing anyhting outside anyway as they are quite loud which is my prefrence and probably bad for my ears but that is how I like my earbuds and headphones.

You have an IPX 4 rating so that is welcome and a two year warranty on top of that and the build quality is good, they have a rubber cover on top of the housing and a pleasing clicky button to change tracks and take calls and you have access to siri which I could not get working on my iPhone 11 sometimes, when you turn them on you get the usual jingle from jam products which is nice.

You can use these in mono mode so one side will work with the other on charge which is the left side charging the right will work but not the other way around, On the usual testing here they do a great job on You Tube and Netflix with no lag latency and calls are fine too both ends they do have some bass too and overall perform solid with the usual music attributes so there is not much to complain about here. There is no volume control on these earbuds but like I said it is a common feature left out with many earbuds even ones costing more than these.

The charging case is one of the better ones I have seen in a while that has micro USB charging and a hang tag and also some LED lights on the front to give you a battery status level,the battery life is on par with the claims which is good but not the highest battery life out there however these have a much smaller profie than others so overall a solid performer for the money and worth a look.
