Jam Silent Pro Review Facts
Watch Video Review

The Jam Silent Pro wireless over the ear headphones are very middle of the road when it comes to headphones. The comfort level is up for debate, if you have a larger sized head or wear glasses then they might feel a little snug and begin to hurt your ears, causing some discomfort that customers do not like; however, if those things do not apply to you then customers find these to be extremely comfortable, with the padded ear cups and lightweight design. The sound quality on these headphones is fairly decent with no major complaints from reviewers about it. If you listen to your music at high levels the sound can become slightly distorted, but at normal levels the quality is good. The noise canceling aspect of these, however, is one of the best qualities that draws customers in. It is wonderful to be able to sit on a crowded bus or run in a city park and be able to tune out the rest of the world and focus on the task at hand. With the very affordable price point, many customers are purchasing the Jam Silent Pro over the ear headphones and many have commented that they would recommend them to their friends and family. If you are looking for something that is middle of the road and very affordable then these are going to be perfect for you.

Durability

Customers have commented and complained that the Jam Silent Pro over the ear headphones have the tendency to suffer from premature wear and tear, which is unfortunate and something that customers do not appreciate. The biggest complaint from users is that after only a few short months the headphones will stop holding a charge, making the wireless feature of them useless, as you cannot connect them if they are not powered on. You will still be able to connect to your device using the cable, but that means you will be tethered to your device and it will defeat the purpose of a pair of wireless headphones.
Ease of Use
Ease of Use

Ease of Use

The Jam Silent Pro over the ear wireless headphones are fairly easy to use. When you use these for the first time you will have to connect them to the device that you are listening to.

There are buttons on the side of the ear cup that will allow you to control the volume of your music without having to worry about messing with the volume controls on the device you are connected to. The power button also acts as the button for pairing the device, which is fairly normal for other wireless headphones on the market. There is also a 3.5 mm jack on the ear cup that can be used to connect your headphones to your device through an AUX cable if your battery is not charged or you simply do not want to bother with connecting it through Bluetooth. You simply plug one end of the AUX cord into the jack on the headphones and the other end into the headphone jack on your device, it is as easy as that.

Power Source

It is said that the battery can last up to 15 hours when listening to music, but please keep in mind there are many factors to take into consideration when determining the length of the battery life.
