Our take on the JBL Reflect Contour

In our article on how to choose headphones for running, in-house fitness expert Deia Z writes, "you're going to need comfortable headphones that stay in place and out of your way." The sweat-proof JBL Reflect Contour wireless headphones nail this. Their Dual Lock fit system features an around-the-ear cable clip that stabilizes the earbuds. Then a twist of the earpiece locks them into place. And there's no connected cord to impede your workout — music plays wirelessly via Bluetooth.

JBL Reflect Contour Reviews

Average Customer Review(s):

(5 Reviews)

JBL for cycling.

Victor from Alhambra, CA on 7/2/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I did get what I expected. They stay on my ears very well. My gripe with these headphones is, I lose the signal when I look left. I use these during cycling and looking left is critical. So when I do, there is no sound. The sound quality is good but they don't sound as good as my Sony's. I would recommend these just for the fact that they do not fall off.

Pros: They are true sports headphones.

Cons: Loss of signal and not enough bass. Still a good product


Ronald from Knoxville, TN on 7/19/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these headphones because of JBL's history in speaker technology. I use them only when I'm out mowing the yard. I have had them for 96 days. The right ear bud started to crackle and is now out completely. I'm very disappointed in this product. I'll go back to my original Plantronics Back Beat 2 I guess.

Pros: Wireless

Cons: Quality

Crutchfield response on 7/24/2017 After receiving Ronald's feedback, we looked up his order and found that his headphones are still under warranty. While his order is beyond Crutchfield's 60-day return policy, he can contact JBL at 800-336-4525 for further information about the 1-year warranty on these headphones.

Wireless convenience, but reduced volume

Brian from Maryland's Eastern Shore on 5/3/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love how light and simple these headphones are, and they don't have a large battery but I believe that comes at a cost. I purchased them to wear while cutting my lawn (riding mower) but they simply do not have enough volume to overcome the noise of the machine. They are fine for other activities, where noise is not as high. I have gone through all of the earpiece cushions a few times and did finally find a fit that seated into my ear correctly, but after about an hour they actually start to hurt. I will continue to search for the correct combination of earpieces because I really want these to work for other activities. I purchased these because I typically use a very inexpensive JBL ear-bud and have purchased many pairs as I damage them given the dangling cord. Those buds are not only louder, but the sound quality is far superior to these. The product appears to be of very good quality and the fact that they can also be used to take calls is a real plus.

Pros: Lightweight, non-invasive cord and easy charging

Cons: lower volume and sound quality

Crutchfield customer from Anaheim, CA on 4/14/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are my first blue tooth set of ear buds. They receive the signal great and stay in my ear good also. The controls are functionable but my fingers have a hard time operating them unless I am looking at the controls.
