JBL has been busy announcing lots of new products at IFA this year including three new pairs of Bluetooth headphones. There are some traditional options, but also JBL’s debut into the “truly wireless” space. Let’s take a closer look.
First up is the latest in the JBL Reflect series which features heart rate monitoring for all you fitness buffs out there. With only the press of a button, these Bluetooth headphones speak to provide you with your current heart rate to keep you on track. The heart rate monitor is built right into the earbuds and includes IPX5 sweat protection. Offering up to 10 hours battery life, highly reflective cables to help keep runners safe, and compatibility with many fitness apps the JBL Reflect are perfect for your active lifestyle. Look out for the JBL Reflect this September starting at $149 in Black, Teal, Blue, and Red.
Next up were the JBL Free, a pair of truly wireless headphones. True to their name, the JBL Free provides you with the freedom from wires and the freedom to use only one earbud or both. This allows you to take a call with one earbud while staying aware of your surroundings or using both to enjoy your music and block out everything else. The JBL Free are built to be comfortable with their secure stay fit ergonomic design and are made from water and sweat resistant materials. With the use of the included charging case, they can last up to 24 hours but only 4 hours of continuous listening. JBL’s truly wireless headphones will be available for $149 in Black or White beginning in October 2017.
Last but not least are the latest addition to the JBL E series of headphones. The JBL E65BTNC Bluetooth headphones offer JBL’s signature sound with active noise cancellation in a stylish package. With up to 24 hours of playback time or 15 hours with active noise cancellation in Bluetooth mode, the JBL E65BTNC headphones will keep you immersed in your favorite music all day. Even more impressive is they only take 2 hours to fully charge, meaning you can spend more time listening and less time charging. The over the ear design and comfort fit fabric headband should also ensure they stay comfortable for those long listening sessions. The JBL E65BTNC will be available in Black, White, and Stone Blue for $199.95 starting in October 2017.
