VERDICT

RevJams Active Sport Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds are a very solid product with an even more attractive price tag. They do a great job during daily commute and all kinds of sports activities. The in-line microphone offers a good performance with a functional outside noise suppression.

RevJams Active are specially designed to lock in and stay securely in one place during extreme workouts and intensive sports activities. They feature an attractive, youthful design and are available in several different colors.

Design

The most characteristic feature of these Bluetooth earbuds is the patented Sport ActiveFit® Ear Gel. These wing-shaped ear tips come with three different sizes for the best fit and they fit inside your ears to support earbuds during running or when you are working out in the gym.

You can also find a handy remote control on the cable with a microphone and all regular functions like pause and resume, rewind, fast-forward, and track skip. The overall size is noticeably smaller than most other wireless sports earbuds. This makes them popular among women, who praise the large selection of different ear tips.

Build quality

RevJams are unexpectedly sturdy earbuds. The ear-wings are made out of silicon, which ensures their high durability and great properties in terms of hygiene. Even if something would happen to them, you can easily replace them with a different pair.

The flat cable feels solid, and we haven’t experienced any issues with microphonics or bad connection. Hopefully, this will remain to be true even after a longer period of use; however, the complete lack of stress relievers makes us worry just a little bit.

The in-line volume controller houses 3 buttons, a microphone, and a power indicator light. The buttons are spaced apart in such a way that it’s easy to control the earbuds even without looking.

Sound quality

These Bluetooth earbuds use the latest implementation of Bluetooth together with AptX technology to deliver an uncompromising sound quality and accuracy. Bassheads should be aware that these earbuds are definitely more balanced than they might like.

The bass is there, but it lacks that physical kick that sends vibrations through your skull. We believe that the added clarity is worth it, though. These are exactly the kind of headphones that you will use for more than just exercise, as the small size and long battery life make them also great for daily commuting and travel.

It’s also good to know that you can use the Bose StayHear® tips, which help to increase noise isolation and improve comfort for long, uninterrupted listening sessions.

What is in the box?

When you purchase RevJams Active, you receive 3 sets of replaceable ear-wings, 1 carrying case, USB cable for charging, and even a so-called sizing clip that lets you adjust cable length.
