Overview

Our take on the JBL E25BT

My take on the JBL E25BT wireless in-ear headphones? They punch WAY out of their price range. The build quality was particularly impressive. They are not waterproof, but they sport a strong, cloth-reinforced cable that rests comfortably behind your neck. And they offer a surprisingly clear and balanced sound.  

Rugged-feeling wireless earbuds with “surprising” sound

My take on the JBL E25BT wireless in-ear headphones? They punch WAY out of their price range. The build quality was particularly impressive. They are not waterproof, but they sport a strong, cloth-reinforced cable that rests comfortably behind your neck. And they offer a surprisingly clear and balanced sound.  

Reliable signal and simple pairing process

I try out a lot of Bluetooth headphones and you'd be surprised how complicated some manufacturers make it to wirelessly pair up your phone. JBL makes it simple. As soon as I activated Bluetooth on my Galaxy S7 phone, it recognized the earbuds right away.

Whether my phone was in my pocket or on a counter across the room, the wireless signal was strong with no audio dropout. Later, when I fired up my tablet to watch west coast hockey highlights from the night before, the pairing process was just as effortless. You can jump back and forth from different Bluetooth devices without a problem. 

Deeper and more detailed than I expected

Headphones at any price can struggle with Jay-Z's “Song Cry.” The female vocals and shimmering sample of Bobby Glen's “Sounds like a Love Song” juxtaposed with deep bass and boom bap drums end up sounding messy or muddy.

Through the E25BTs, the song's low end sounded full and on-point, while the upper mids and highs were well-defined and satisfying. While certainly not “audiophile,” I'd say these earbuds sound way better than “adequate” – this is max value for the price.   

Hands-free, wireless calling

JBL also makes it easy to make and take phone calls wirelessly. There's a mic built in and a three-button remote on the cable. Use the remote to answer calls, skip songs, and play and pause music.

Great price, good sound, but buds won't stay in

Steven from Fairfield, CT on 2/21/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You can't beat the price, and the sound is very nice, but the ear buds just don't comfortably stay inside your ear - at least not my ears. Unlike my wired Apple ear buds that fit comfortably and never slip out, I find I am pushing the JBL buds back in my ear every five minutes or so.

Pros: Good price, good sound, good battery life

Cons: Ear buds won't stay in the ear

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A great set of earbuds for a low price. Well designed with decent sound- I was really worried that they'd sound like a cheap clock radio with poor highs but that's not the case. The range is excellent; I can go across my house 50-60' without issues. The battery life is great; the built in mic works great with phone calls as well. I should've went wireless a long time ago.

Pros: Low cost, good sound, great range and the built in mic.

Cons: Not really an issue; however the clicking noise or pushing buttons when typing on your phone "sound volume" can't be adjusted. For example, you can have your music down really low-- and start typing on your phone and it's "loud". Not a big deal.

Full Sound From Highs to Lows

Shayne from Louisville, KY on 11/22/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At this price, I am very satisfied. I've tried several with the neck loop, but they are just annoying. The neckband clip does well to keep slack and not pull down on the buds. Sound is as good as my Bose wired headphones. Didn't purchase for working out, so I don't know how they do in that capacity. Just to chill and listen to music, they are great.

Pros: Nice sound. Loud. Pretty comfortable.

Cons: Earpieces with hooks would be nice.

Pretty, pretty good

Anonymous from Ann Arbor, MI on 10/29/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall, this is a nice piece. The Bluetooth connection is a little finnicky though. On several occasions, I've had to remove, then re-add the device to be able to get the bluetooth to connect to my computer. Battery life is quite good so far.

Pros: Good sound, good volume, good build quality, comes with nice carrying case that's very compact, easy to connect

Cons: Bluetooth connection can be a little finicky. May need to remove and re-add the device to be able to connect. I've had to do this 3 or 4 times in two weeks of owning.

Jim from Ft Worth, TX on 10/19/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these for working out and am mostly enjoying them so far. A few thoughts: - Sound: Fantastic sound. Very well balanced, these have a nice natural EQ to them that provides a good mix of bass, mids and treble. - Fit: You'll have to play around with the rubber earpieces to get the best fit. They come with the medium rubber earpieces on the actual phones, and the package includes a small pair and large pair so that you can customize fit. I'm six feet tall and had to go with the smallest earpieces to keep them from falling out while working out. I do still fidget with them to keep them in and wish that wasn't the case. But every person is built differently, so they may fit other folks' ears perfectly. - Setup: Synched up to my iPhone quickly, no problems at all. - Value: Very good for the money. Except for the occasional adjustments I need to make to keep them intact and sealed in my ears, these are great earbuds. Probably great if you are sitting on a plane and not moving, but for working out or running I wish they had a better fit.

Pros: Fantastic sound, very balanced.

Cons: I struggle with fit - keeping them in while working out.

Great set of earphones

Chris from Trenton, NJ on 8/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice sounding. Plenty of Volume. Just question how long the USB cover is going to last before falling off? And the USB charging cord is only about 6" long. Plus the ends.

Pros: Sound Quality, Volume

Cons: Charging cord could be longer.

Sound is decent. Could be a little more vibrant. Battery is pretty good. Lasts me near a full 8 hours of a work day. Overall, a good product if you're in motion a lot and you want a pair of headphones to match you

Pros:

Cons:

Sound is great!

Acuraci from Ashburn, VA on 7/19/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound is quite clear, vibrant, nice bass! Only drawback is the mic during phone conversations; people on the other send say I sound muffled, but better when I move the mic closer to mouth, which means removing one of the earpieces. As a bluetooth headset for music, fantastic! For use as a headset for phone usage, it could be better.

Pros:

Cons:

Good Choice
