Very Poor Design and Not Recommended.

I purchased the Tune 225TWS. The Pros: They have great sound and long battery life. The Cons: #1 If you don't charge them on a regular basis the batteries will go dead. I always seem to find this out when I'm getting ready to board a flight and the batteries are completely dead. This has been a problem since new so I know it's not battery itself and simply a design flaw. #2 I guess I have larger than normal ear canals and these headphones will not stay in place nor will they seat deep enough to give you the rich/full bass sound. They don't come with any ear tips and always fall out and that's just from sitting, you don't dare do any physical activities since they will drop out of your ear every time! Based on my experience I would not recommend this product.

We appreciate your time in providing feedback on our JBL Tune 225 TWS. Try to refresh your Bluetooth settings by forgetting or unpairing the headphones on your device's Bluetooth list. Next, manually pair the two earbuds together by simultaneously tapping the button of both earbuds three times while they're out of the charging case, then try to connect it again to your device. If the issue remains, please contact our customer support service via our official website or toll-free hotline.

Cuts your ears, rubber bits fall off 😀

1 out of 5 stars
My ears hurt - 2 months ago
originally posted on jbl.com
I lost my good ear buds and replaced them with these. Huge mistake! The little rubber bits on the ear part started separating from the ear bud maybe a week into having these. When they started to separate they started leaving little cuts and sores inside my ear :) fast forward to now (had them about a year almost) and the rubber bits are completely detached! I have to stick em on to use them and then when I take the earbuds out I have to fish out the rubber bit from the inside of my ear. One of these days I’m afraid I won’t be able to fish them out and the rubber will get stuck. Anyways if you’re looking for an expensive product that will cut and scrape you and fall apart inside of your body then this is the product of your nightmares 😍

Save Your Receipt

nick231 - 3 months ago
originally posted on jbl.com
All I can say is save your receipt or go with Apple. After a bit of time, for me it was 6 months of light use and the right earbud, one of the two earbuds won't receive a charge. Case will charge, left bud will charge just fine, but the right bud stays dark. Google "tune 225 TWS won't charge" and you'll see it's common. JBL doesn't recognize this issue and won't work with you to find a solution. The only way to get a warranty is if you have the receipt. Good luck. Find a better product.

These headphones sound great and they fit awesome. I absolutely prefer this style of headphone. HOWEVER, I have had two pairs of these and both pairs, after about 4 months the rubber on the inside peeled off and makes them extremely uncomfortable to wear.

I bought my fist pair last October for a Christmas gift. After 5 months the rubber covering was peeling so bad it was cutting my ears. The right earbud began having pairing issues. I received a replacement pair. Now three months later the rubber is again peeling and beginning to cut into my ear. The right earbud is beginning to have charging issues. The audio quality is great and I love the fit. Just needs a better design so that the rubber doesn't peel up.

I bought these in July 2021 and they worked great until a couple of weeks ago the right earbud stopped pairing with any of my devices. I really liked these earbuds as they did not have the silicone tip that goes into your ear.

Thank you for taking time to provide a feedback, You may try to manually pair your Tune 225 TWS by opening the charging case and take the earbuds. Check your phone's Bluetooth list and choose JBL Tune 225TWS. If the earbuds are not visible on your phone's Bluetooth list, tap and hold the L/R touch control for 5 seconds. If you have any questions or concerns with your device, please contact our Customer Support, so we can assist you.

These earbuds are fine... when they work. Bluetooth Connectivity is a nightmare with these things. One earbud will randomly decide to go rogue and it'll no longer want to connect to my phone. Almost like each earbud is a completely independent device. It's frustrating. Love JBL speakers, not a fan of JBL earbuds. Buy something else.
1 reply from Customer Support team - 5 months ago
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. It could be that the left and right earbud disconnects from each other. Press the button on each earbud three times to re-establish their connection. If you need more help, please reach out to our JBL Customer Support.

They hurt! I couldn't ever get them to sit and stay. The silicone end is pealing up not allowing the lid to close, in turn not receiving a full charge. I'm lucky to get 2 hours sometimes. Save your money and get something else.

I bought these back in May. The charge doesn't last long at all and the silicone part is already starting to wear away on the left ear bud
1 reply from Customer Support team - 5 months ago
Thank you for your review. We appreciate all kinds of feedback to make our products even better in the future. It is a shame to hear that you are experiencing issues with your device not holding charge. The Tune 225 TWS has a maximum play time of 5 hours, with up to 20 hours of battery life in the charging case. Volume levels and the type of music you are listening to will affect the battery life slightly, but if your device performs to a lower standard, you might want to check that the metal charging contacts of your earbuds and charging case are clean. It is not uncommon to have charging problems with True Wireless headphones. This is almost always caused by dirt on the metal charging contacts. Use a cotton swab with some rubbing alcohol to clean the charging terminals of the headphones to re-establish charging levels. For more detailed troubleshooting and regarding the wearing away of one earbud, I would like to go on that a bit more in detail to see in what way this is happening. Please reach out to us via the below link: https://support.jbl.com/gb/en/ Thank you.
