The Endurance Peak utilizes bluetooth connectivity, specifically version 4.2, in order to fully function. While its wireless range isn't listed on the JBL website, it's safe to assume that it has the usual range of 33 feet, meaning that buyers won't feel tied down to their device as they work out. Buyers can set this up with help from this model's touch-sensitive controls and their smartphone's Bluetooth settings.

One of this set's most distinguishing features is the fact that it utilizes both mono and stereo modes. This means that they can store away the left earbud in the charging case and use only the right side while making phone calls, and then bring it back out and use both for music listening. It should be pointed out that, while it does provide better sound quality, a lot of buyers find this set-up to be annoying and inconvenient.
