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
  • Impedance: 32 ohms

JBL E45BT Reviews

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!

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

Great sound quality, light weight, and built for convenience. I was not disappointed at all! I highly recommend this for anyone who works out or wants a set of headphones to use any where. It's so easy to pack and the sleek design makes it appealing to look at. Great work with this product!

Overview: The JBL E45BT wireless on-ear headphones deliver the JBL Signature Sound either wired or wirelessly. Bluetooth 4.0 lets you listen to your music or carry on a phone conversation without being tethered to your smartphone. You can also plug into your device with the supplied audio cable when you can't (or don't want to) go wireless. The E45BT also comes with a USB charging cable.

Drivers: The headphones are equipped with 40mm dynamic drivers to give you clear highs and powerful bass. The drivers are housed in sleek, stylish ear cups that sit comfortably on your ears. The fabric-covered headband adjusts for a perfect fit.

Bluetooth: The E45BT wireless on-ear headphones feature Bluetooth (version 4.0) with HFP (v1.6), HSP (v1.2), A2DP (v1.2), and AVRCP (v1.4) profiles. On board controls are located on the right ear cup, and include the following: Power, volume up/down, play/pause, next track, previous track, answer/reject call, and end call. You can also pair the headphones to two devices and seamlessly switch from one to the other.

Cable: The headphones come with a 52" fabric-covered, tangle resistant cable for those times when you need to plug into your device. The cable has an in-line 1-button universal remote that is compatible with most smartphones, including iOS and Android devices. The remote controls play/pause, next track, previous track, and voice control/assistant. On iOS devices, you can also control fast forward/fast reverse.

Battery: The headphones are powered by a built-in 3.7V 610mAh Polymer Lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The battery charges in approximately 2 hours via the supplied USB charging cable.
