JBL Reflect Response Bluetooth Earphones Review

After the AKG Y30, I had my session on one of the latest Bluetooth earphones from JBL, meet the JBL Reflect Response.


This is what the box looks like at the front


and at the back. We are all familiar with the form factor of this product. What's unique, instead of those buttons, the music controls will be based on how many times you will tap either the left or the right earbuds. There are four commands on each part but I focused on the 3 most frequent things that I usually do which I will tell later: play, pause and next track


JBL also incluuded a carrier bag, user manual and 3 more sizes of earbuds. For this review, I used the one that was already attached at the device.


On comfort, I had no complains. The ergonomics was also nice to use it for a number of hours. Pairing of this product to the phone that I used which is Infinix Note 2 was also fine. I love that  JBL used flat cables for this one.  I used it on the same albums that I mentioned, it missed some details compared to my current BT headphones that I am using but still it has a good sound output. One example - I can only hear a little bit of the 2nd guitar in the instrumental part of Rico Blanco's Sorry Naman. Still, it is still on the balance side.





Charging time took around less than an hour for me. Their promise of 10 hour battery life is true based on the number of days that I used the product. It was also great when I used it for calls.


The biggest drawback for me was their feature for earbuds as controls. It was really a learning curve for me for a number of days just only for those 3 commands that I mentioned. There were some times that I am just adjusting one of the buds and sometimes that you cannot avoid to touch, the device will recognize it as a command so I hope that they just stick to the control buttons on the body of the BT earphone.

The price of Php 7,490 is a bit high for me considering that there are some other brands that can offer better output (probably the max. amount that I encountered was at Php 5,000) plus a bit of frustation on the controls but the sound output is not that bad as well as BT pairing, comfort and battery life. I will gonna give a 3 out oof 5 for JBL Reflect Response Bluetooth Earphones
