Bought these today after scouring for a decent pair of low to mid price Bluetooth headphones. Check out the reviews on Amazon.com and elsewhere - these do live up to those reviews. Bought for music but also for watching movies and tv shows such as Netflix on the Ipad. No latency whatsoever. Well happy. Cheaper nowhere else from what I can see.

Really like the look of these. Good find!

Have been tempted to buy some bluetooth headphones for a while now and ones that can do bass and look decent, these seem to tick all the boxes. Also have a £20 gift card for Currys, after seeing them get 4.5/5 on Amazon.com from 102 reviews and 4.6/5 from 44 on BestBuy, these have got to be worth a shot. Cheers for posting!

Tempting. :) Can you use them wired when battery runs out? Also, are they foldable? Doesn't look like it from pics.

There is no 3.5mm jack. I had them on last night while charging via USB and the charge lasts 11 hours while it only takes 3 hours to recharge.

Not foldable but it comes with a hard plastic case.

I had the same thoughts, I saw these on the same site, any opinions on these?

There are no reviews of those headphones anywhere and PC World / Currys seem to sell the Goji products as branded budgets, for me it's a no brainer when you have one with no reviews and one with an average of 4.6/5 from 150 odd reviews.

I picked them up today and have only had a quick chance to have a listen but they do seem like incredibly good value to be honest. Bass is strong and so are the highs, had to mess with my EQ a bit to get the best out of them. They sit *very* comfortably on ears. Seem to be of decent quality and the hard case is a nice bonus. They go really loud and the clarity is pretty astounding, no distortion at all. I'd be recommending these at £60, £30 is a bargain and can't imagine finding better for less.

I am glad you found them to be as good as I have.

picked up mine this morning ,paired easily with phone,laptop and tablet seem good quality certainly well worth the £30 case though went straight in the bin as the hinge on the bottom was bust not bothered either way .I bought a set of Fidelio from Amazon last week (190)but the Bluetooth didn't come thru in stereo so sent em back wasn't going to bother again but thought these were worth a try at £30 and im happy

Thanks just ordered very good find :-)

After buying the Jam Rewind speaker and finding it to be one of the best speakers I've ever used for its size, I'm more than happy to give these a punt. They look quite swish too.
#13
i have a par v similar, except the band sits at the back of my neck and the cans loop over me ears. pretty much wear them all the time when travelling to and from... only thing that's wrong with mine (and these, from the pcis) are the speaker bit sticks out like frankenstein's monster bolt! have owned several pairs that were much more slim and discrete but they were bluetooth v.2 and not found similar since... plus my recent ones were waaaay cheaper than these and bloody fine and folded up:

to anyone who looks at rrp and then the discount, waste of time without comments and reviews...

am actually thinking of giving these a go...

both seem a better buy than the currys one...

Wife gave me the Goji ones for our anniversary and I can recommend them - great clear sound with good lows and the headphone jack means that it's more flexible than the ones in this deal. They fit very snugly and have a fairly tight fit but they don't lay nicely around your neck because of that. Your chin doesn't have much space to move downwards.

They fold inwards nicely for storage and the set comes with a small drawstring pouch. Bluetooth connection is clear and strong from my phone and it also doubles up as a bluetooth device for answering calls - quality is reasonable and comes through clearly though you'll need to speak clearly to be heard on the other end.

Foudn that someone did a video review - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ6NJpryZhQ

Cheers... but you just cost me 29.99

Saw these the other day and was gonna post them, but I thought they seemed pretty basic for the price. No aux cable either, and they don't look especially comfortable/flexible. I went for a pair of Bluedio R2s from Amazon for £32.99 instead, but was also looking at the August EP650s and the Creative WP-450s
#18
would these work with smart tv's & could these be used as a hands free headset. I know the beats ones work for hands free(albeit much more expensive )
#19
Its crazy that smaller unknown companies are making much better sounding speakers than some of the well known brands on the market.

I love them. I posted the deal of course but I do not think you will find better for the money.
#23
I bought these last week mainly for the gym as wires really annoy me and I am very impressed with them! Paired up easy, come precharged so can use them straight away. Loud and good bass etc! Went running in them last night...good sound (but not noise cancelling so don't shout at me for running with headphones on!) very comfortable and did not budge even when running! I am so impressed with them! Just glad I didn't spend money on really expensive ones when these do the job! Best £29.99 spent in a long time!

With these being on-ear headphones I guess the wouldn't be great for commuting or an office environment due to sound leakage? Anyone any comments?

How are the Bludio R2s? I was thinking of getting those as well.

Cheaper headphones tend to focus on bass though, as most casual headphone users will believe that good bass = good headphones (as in-ear headphones/smartphone speakers have poor bass. Jam make decent speakers though, so I'd imagine they're not bad for the price.

I shall let you know when they arrive tomorrow! They got "lost in transit" apparently so had to re-order...
#31
They have been the same price at both Curry's and Amazon before Christmas. Found some in Kohl's in the States and with some Kohl's cash (free money) got a pair for $10. What a result. They are pretty good, well worth £30. Still haven't charged them yet so ready for them to die tomorrow.... Battery life is good, haven't checked for leakage. I got a red and black pair.
#32
I'm still on the fence here, can anyone tell me how much sound can be heard by others when someone else is wearing them and listening to music at a reasonable volume?
#33
Come on people, someone here who has bought a pair must have at least 1 friend? :)

I bought some yesterday and the sound is pretty amazing. I went headphone shopping at the weekend and must have tested 30 pairs, ranging from £50 - £350. And these Jam ones are the best of the lot. So for £29.99 they're an amazing buy. With regards to the sound leakage, it depends how loud you want them. I made a colleague of mine in the office put them on and turned them up quite loud and you could hear the music slightly. So in a quiet office environment, on loud, there is sound leakage. However I did the same test on the bus this morning, and with the sound of the bus engine in the equation aswell, you couldn't hear any sound leakage at all on a decent volume. Just don't be one of those dicks who sits with their headphones on as loud as they'll go so everyone can hear it and you'll be ok.
#35
I must specify though, that having just tested them again, at a decent volume, in a very quiet room with no noise, the sound leakage was very minimal. But if you are one of those people who wants their music deafening (and these headphones do reach a phenomenal volume compared to some of the more expensive ones i tested), the leakage is quite noticeable.

Thanks for the reply, very helpful. One more question, what is the packaging like? Would I be able to return them once I bought them if not satisfied or are they in the blister type packaging you have to cut to open?

Yeah you could return them no problem. It comes in a case which is shaped like the headphones themselves, with a simple clip at the top to open and close, and that's the packaging.

Seriously, I'd get some, they are excellent. I've spent so much time searching for a good pair of affordable headphones that were better than what I already had (some House of Marley). And as I said previously, spent hours on Saturday going round shops to buy some and tested loads, including some very expensive Beats, and those fairly new Bose Soundtrue ones that I was going to fork out £149.00 for, that was until I tested them and to be honest, they weren't that great. Put it this way, these Jam Transits are as good as the Beats (if not better) that I tried out at £349.00 and miles better than the £149.00 Bose Soundtrue. I agree with what someone wrote above, I'm amazed at how much these so called "big name" headphone makers are charging for what is sometimes nothing more than a fashion accessory, when for 30 quid you can get these, which I would say sound as though they should be worth about £200.00, based on the prices of ones I heard at the weekend. And these ones are so much better in their sound quality than all the other ones I tested.

only holding off due to radiation exposure to the head from bluetooth!
And the 'fake beats' label that will be attached when wearing in public lol (less so than the above point)
