About the JBL E45BT

Value-packed portable 'phones

Here's a real bargain if you're looking for on-ear Bluetooth headphones. The JBL E45BT headphones check all the portability boxes: lightweight, nicely padded, and convenient to use. They don't feel quite as durable as some of the higher-end on-ears, but the headband is very flexible and can handle some punishment. (My sample pair survived weeks of getting shoved in and out of bags.)

Jack of All Trades - Master of None (and that's OK!)

Jeff from Cincinnati, OH on 5/9/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Cliff notes: great headphones for the money once you properly "fit" them to your head and if you understand exactly what you are buying. I bought these not really knowing what to expect from them. I'm picky about sound quality but commute daily via bus and a small walk and was getting tired of wires. After I tried them for the first time, I was underwhelmed. Bass was lacking and sound quality was tinny. I was also getting a lot of sound "artifacts." I debated returning them but before I did that, I decided to try converting my ALAC files to 128kps MP3 under the theory that less compression would lead to less "artifacts." That helped but the bass was still lacking. Right before I was about to give up, I tried "fitting" the headband so the earcups would press more against my ears. The bass appeared and now I use these daily for both commute and casual listening via wired hookup. If you are considering these its important to understand that the sound profile is very sculpted. I see it as very similar to the iphone earbuds, which was likely the point. So if you like that sound profile, then by all means throw these into consideration. If you are expected a flat/nuetral sound profile and/or listen to a lot of jazz, singer/songwriter, or anything that is not bass heavy, I would look elsewhere. The sound profile is great for rock, trance/EDM, and rap when you are doing something else. Overall, I'm content with the purchase and think they are great for the money.

Pros: Good sound quality considering SBC codec limitation Slightly emphasized bass sound profile makes certain music "fun" Quick pairing with iOS Maintains bluetooth connection even in high density city areas Battery life

Cons: Limited padding in headband - top of my head starts to get sore after about 30-45 min. Easy to accidentally turn off headphones when fishing for controls - wish the power switch was "two stage" i.e. push and slide rather than just slide.

JBL E45BT Headphone review

Crutchfield customer from Portland, OR on 3/26/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The JBL E45BT Headphones sound really good and I do like them. However the head band could be a bit tighter. They seem a little lose to me. The buttons should be highlighted a different color for contrast.

Pros: Sound is really good. Lightweight, charges fast and lasts a long time.

Cons: Head band does not seem tight enough, buttons are hard to read and should be highlighted better.

Painful, hard to tell which button is which

Luke from Denver, CO on 1/14/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Two main problems. 1.) It's hard to tell when the headphones are on your head which button is which. 2.) they press a lot on the side of your head and it's painful after a short while. Thought that might just be more the on-ear phones rather than these specifically.

Pros:

Cons: Painful, hard to tell which button is which.

Crutchfield response on 1/22/2019
Luke, we're sorry you're disappointed with your headphones. Whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team at 1-800-955-9091. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.

The sound is great. Crisp and clear highs and lows. Nice and comfortable and are very light. If I had to list any negative, it would be the Bass could be a bit deeper and volume a bit louder but overall these are great headphones.

Pros: Lightweight, comfortable fit, crisp clean sound, battery life

Cons: Not really any but could go louder and deepen the bass

I was disappointed that I found out through buying these headphones that my computer doesn't have 'Bluetooth". Crutchfield did their best to help me complete the marriage between the headphones and the laptop. However the headphones did come with a cord, that was used for hookup. Was at the time disappointed, but it wasn't against Crutchfield they and their representatives. I like the headphones, just wish there was Bluetooth on the laptop to forget the cord.

Great value, a little treble push.

Jose from Bayamon, PR on 8/26/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bougth these to replace failing beats solo2, price is very good, sound is much better than the beats but with a little treble push. Sound feels real vocals are very clear, bass is well defined. I use it with my android note 8 surround set and the sound is great. Only draw back for me is i would like a little more bass punch and less treble push, but hey thats my preference. They are very confortable even when jogging.

Pros: Price, clear sound, surroud is great, ligthweigth.

Cons: Clear but too soft bass, treble push, had to make adjustments to the phone audio to really wake them up.

Great for the Gym

BJ from Amissville, VA on 7/24/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Headphones are great,they are perfect for the gym,they dont fall off and i sometimes forget that there even on my head.Could be a little louder but its not a deal breaker.I got them mainly for working out an seen mixed reviews,after about a month of use i can say they will get the job done in the gym,i can do push ups,sit ups,bench press and run and they have stayed on,there will be some adjusting as you sweat an move but i have found it minimal! Battery life is excellent and range is great as i can go the length of the gym get a drink an they stay connected. These are not sweat or water proof but have held up well to my sweat,I let them air dry to keep ear cups dry as possible...Overall i give the JBL 45 a 5 stars...

Pros: Battery life,No wires,comes with Aux cable for wired use and excellent range.

Cons: Not water/sweat proof

I was looking for a headphone that was NOT bulky, had both Bluetooth and wired capabilities to match my Denon AVR-S910W, for movie watching. I needed the wire capabilities in case I forgot the recharge the batteries. I was looking for a modest price, with some quality sound to boot. JBL makes fine products, which I have several of their speakers. This E45BT headset, produces NICE sound coming from the AVR that is receiving and sending Dolby/DTS movie sound. This JBL headset fit my application perfectly!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I love the design and ease of Bluetooth setup. I'm not too impressed with the sound quality or overall loudness. I bought these to replace my Kicker Tabors I bought a year ago which would blow these away in sound and decibel. But the kickers had terrible Bluetooth and would cut out even with my phone in my pocket. The JBLs are nice but I wish they were louder. Or really wish my Tabors would've had better Bluetooth.

Pros: Lightweight, Bluetooth is great and simple

Cons: Not very loud, not much bass
