What customers say about "Key Specs"
JBL Reflect Mini BT In-Ear Sport Headphones
  • Very good bass and overall frequency response with a bonus of long battery life.
  • Great sound, great range and very comfortable to wear!
  • Battery life will is great. They are very comfortable and fit nicely
  • Got these for my son and he has been impressed with the performance and battery life.
  • The only thing they fall short on is the low frequency tones (bass), but I usually listen to podcasts for school anyway. Otherwise, these headphones are the best and you should stop thinking about your options and purchase them today.
JayBird X2 Wireless Sweat-Proof Micro-Sized Bluetooth Sport Headphones - Alpha
  • 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 "Size & Weight"
JBL Reflect Mini BT In-Ear Sport Headphones
  • Product is light weight good for gym.
  • They are extremely light weight and won't pull out of your ear when running or jumping.
  • Very light weight headphones, excellent for running.
  • Thes are so light weight, easy to use... Perfect for running!
  • The hearing part is too big and weights a lot and it falls out.
JayBird X2 Wireless Sweat-Proof Micro-Sized Bluetooth Sport Headphones - Alpha
  • The smallest bluetooth earbuds money can buy in the market(I tried a lot ie backbeats go2, jabra sport, etc and they all look like I have a jawbreaker in my ear). The fit is great but when I ran it started to fall off with the sweat and all.
  • They are very light and the weight is equally distributed, so if you take them off and leave them hanging from your neck, one tip will not be heavier than the other.
  • The comply tips are VERY comfortable. The foam is a type of memory foam that is very hard to detect once in your ear.
  • Ear fins may not work for everyone: depends on ones ear
  • Price inconsistencies between colors, black and white are hundreds of dollars less then other colors.

What customers say about "Features"
JBL Reflect Mini BT In-Ear Sport Headphones
  • They work great as bluetooth with my phone and ipod.
  • Was looking for the best wireless Bluetooth set I could find and after trying on all the top brands these had the best fit and overall sound quality.
  • Good range and connectivity, fit well in ears and don't fall out.
  • They are sweat and water resistant, they do NOT fall out after hard sprints.
  • The microphone works well and they sound okay.
  • The music quality over the earphones are not bad but very bad microphone quality.
JayBird X2 Wireless Sweat-Proof Micro-Sized Bluetooth Sport Headphones - Alpha
  • 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 BT In-Ear Sport Headphones
  • The battery longevity is nice with fairly quick recharge.
  • Charging time is less than what I expected and the charge has lasted well over a week and that's with a daily two-hour workout.
  • Charge shuts off once completed to avoid battery decay (very nice).
  • The battery only lasts about 4-5hrs total (whether the headphones are in use or not). So after every use I have to remember to charge them before I use them.
  • Battery low warning is annoying though. They're in my ears, tell me once that the battery is low. Not every 30 seconds.
JayBird X2 Wireless Sweat-Proof Micro-Sized Bluetooth Sport Headphones - Alpha
  • 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.
