Overview

Our take on 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.) And JBL always delivers a crowd-pleasing sound — they tune every headphone to meet a data-driven sound signature that they've discovered most people prefer.

Product Highlights:

  • sleek on-ear design
  • 40mm dynamic drivers deliver immediate sound with punchy bass
  • Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity for wireless music listening and phone calls with compatible smartphones
  • built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 16 hours of music listening
  • earcup buttons offer music, volume, and call controls
  • built-in microphone for hands-free calls
  • folding design for easy storage
  • form-fitting design keeps headphones from moving around
  • fabric-covered headband and ergonomically designed earpads for long-lasting comfort
  • includes cloth-covered miniplug headphone cable for wired listening
  • USB charging cable included
  • frequency response: 20-20,000 Hz

JBL E45BT

Crutchfield customer from Hubbardston, MI on 9/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros:

Cons:

great sound quality

Crutchfield customer from Charlotte, NC on 8/28/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

these sound wonderful, my first pair of Bluetooth headphones. I can wear them at the gym at low volumes and still blur out the gym noise! my only gripe is having to hold the volume up button for 3-4 seconds every time to skip tracks.

Pros:

Cons:

Great value, a little treble push.

Jose from Bayamon, PR on 8/26/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Nice!

Teetertotter from Janesville, WI on 6/19/2018

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!

Pros:

Cons:

Justin from Parkville, MD on 5/27/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Hubby and I are retired and will be full time RVers in the fall. We needed the Garmin RV 770 for our travels. It's filled with so many capabilities that will help us in our trip planning and keep us safe from low bridges. We are looking forward to using the Garmin and if we need help setting up, tech help is available. That means a lot to hubby and I. Thanks for all your help and answered questions.
