What customers say about "Key Specs"
JBL Reflect Mini Bluetooth In-Ear Sport Headphones
  • Sound quality for music was well balanced and had bass without being excessive.
  • Great sound quality and the noise canceling is great. The shape of the silicone is amazing during a work out!
  • Fit perfect and Low profile, also never move around. Noise canceling and good sound quality.
  • For working out, running and lifting, they work great. They allow some noise in so you can hear those around you or running outside.
  • Кange from phone was very minimal compared to some other headset I have used in the same environment.
JayBird X2 Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
  • Sound quality is great - As good as my $100 bose soundtrue earbuds(for a regular joe, it is more than enough). I use to watch movies on my mac and netflix on my roku and it sounds great.
  • The sound is good, especially for bluetooth headsets. It's not comparable to corded sets, but most people already realize this. Not too bassy, very balanced.
  • They worked but sound quality was poor and there was a light buzzing sound in both ears whenever they were active.
  • Surprisingly good. I like the sound signature in that it's not too heavy nor devoid of bass. If you're a Beats person don't get these. It has a bit more bass than my studio monitors but that's okay for me for casual listening.
  • These really make the sound seem rich and full. I listen to audiobooks and music, and you can hear a lot of subtleties and richness in music particularly.

What customers say about "Features"
JBL Reflect Mini Bluetooth In-Ear Sport Headphones
  • Good sounds, but very slight bass. I really like the reflective cable.
  • The package contains three sleeve sizes.
  • No connection issues, pairing is easy.
  • Small size earbuds fit perfectly (it's really difficult for me to find earbuds that fit).
  • The power button fell off and is lost, and now they won’t even turn on. Considering the price, 3 months is not long enough for them to last. One star.
  • Audio quality is very poor to me. It's the last thing I expected from a JBL product. All highs, no mids or lows in the music.
JayBird X2 Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
  • Noise cancelling is passive(enough to zone in but safe enough to hear surroundings while running).
  • Good connectivity to music: used with Spotify and have not had a problem with disconnection
  • The remote works well to adjust the volume and pause/play music on all devices. The iPhone specific double-tap and triple tap track controls do not work. In fact, try to break your habit of double tapping the center remote button because that will redial the last person you called.
  • The volume and power button on the side is within reach and easy to learn. It found and connected to my iPhone 5 with no problems. Got it to fit perfectly and comfortably.
  • No issues except for old bluetooth devices. Disconnected once but it was my old 2009 mac(so I bought a bluetooth dongle). Switching from one device to another is very easy. It can only get connected to one device.

What customers say about "Power"
JBL Reflect Mini Bluetooth In-Ear Sport Headphones
  • Nice battery duration (better than bose soundsport).
  • Battery lasts for up to 8 hours.
  • The battery lasts very long (I’ve been to the gym for 5 days and am there for an hour and I still half 3/4 of my battery left).
  • Annoying charge battery indicator.
  • Battery Life : not so great expected of course no false advertising in the battery department but what irritates me the most is that when the headphones get to around 10% of life left they constantly remind you to charge em every 30 seconds when you can still squeeze out almost an hour of music.
JayBird X2 Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
  • Battery life is as advertised - Ran for a week running 5-7 miles daily, watching movies without charging. Gets approximately 8 hours.
  • After 16 months, the battery will run about 5.5 to 6 hours per charge. I Love that the headphones will give me an audible "battery low" message when I have about 22 minutes left on my charge.
  • They were fully charged after Saturday but on Sunday morning, at the middle of my run, they just turned off by themselves without a low battery warning.
  • My only complaint is that battery life is markedly worse than the X's. I'd get a solid 8+ hours with the X's, divided over 3 or 4 workouts. With the X2's I'm lucky to get 4 hours, I'm not sure why. I have 2 pairs and both are the same.
  • Good but not great. I mostly use these for work and travel. They last me fora god amount such that I'm not constantly worried about whether they are charged or not. A full charge lasts me a week with about 30 minutes of listening everyday.
