JBL Reflect Fit Earphones Review
JBL’s latest exercise-focused Bluetooth earphones come with a built-in heart rate monitor the earphones are priced under $150. These are moderately priced and works quite well. For the price, you pay to get the aforementioned monitor and great earphones. These gave clear sound and loud and powerful bass.
Anyone seeking an accurate sound signature should look elsewhere—the audio here is sculpted, but it’s well-balanced, at least, and if bass helps motivate your work out, the added oomph here won’t disappoint. The fit is exceptionally secure, and the monitor can also be synced with various fitness apps.
The strong seal of the in-ears and the presence of a collar band may not be for everyone, but all in all, it’s another winner in the wireless exercise department from JBL, and it earns our Editors’ Choice award for its solid design, performance, and functionality.
These earphones are available in red, blue, black, or teal color. These reflect fit has a collar band that rests around the ear. The Reflect Fit has a collar band that rests around the lower neck. The reflective cables extend to the earpiece.
The exterior of the earphone is complete rubber and comes with an IPX5 rating. These are sweat proof and can be easily worn when you are in rain.
These come with three pairs of ear tips (S, M, and L), and also with three pairs of the stabilizing fins (S, M, and L). Also, these come with a circular zip-up pouch.
On the left side of the earbuds, there is the plus-minus button for controlling the volume and also helps in track navigation. A long press on the minus button takes it back to the previous track and similarly for the right side takes to the next one. Though this can be a bit confusing for some as the same button is working for two.
On the right side, there is a heart rate monitor. Also, there is a multi functional button and also controls the playback and call management too.
The earpieces come with silicone tips and have separate fins too. These are fastened to the base of the earpiece. This helps in stable fit and allows it to press the fins against the ear gently.
It comes with a 5.8 mm driver which delivers clear audio. The earpiece also has an internal heart rate monitor mentioned in my JBL Reflect Fit review.

JBL rates the Reflect Fit has a battery life of roughly 8 hours. But the result can vary from the volume level and the heart rate monitor working. If the heart rate monitor is off it gives 2 more hours to jam in. The Reflect Fit comes with a micro USB-to-USB charging cable.

The heart monitor also works perfectly fine. You need to connect with the app and easily control the fitness-related settings.
