Apple® controls and some cool cable management features

Nobody wants to take a call while they're pumping iron. But if you can manage to free one hand for just a second, you can do it with these headphones. The in-line remote and microphone allow easy hands-free conversations with an iPhone®. The three-button remote also lets you play and pause music, skip tracks, and adjust volume with other Apple portable devices. The cable's length can also be adjusted. Shorten it for times when your smartphone is strapped to your bicep, or use the included extension cable if your device is clipped along your enviably small waistline. When you need a water break, the magnetic earpieces let you connect them and wear around your neck until you're ready for another heart-pumping session.

great earbuds pros clean crisp sound and the earbuds fit great in my ear cons: cord is way to short

Features

Overview: The JBL Synchros Reflect-I in-ear sport headphones are designed for active lifestyles. The ergonomic ear buds stay in your ear as you go through your workout. They are equipped with a highly-reflective cable to give you added visibility at night. The Reflect-I model is specifically designed to work with Apple iOS devices, although it has some functionality with other devices.

Drivers and Cable: The headphones are equipped with premium 8.5mm drivers for solid bass response and clear highs. The headphones have an attached 24" cable which can be used with devices that are worn on the chest or arm. The 22" extension cable can be connected when more length is needed, such as when wearing the device on a belt, or in a purse, backpack, or pouch.

Compatibility: The in-line 3-button remote and microphone is compatible with iPod, iPhone, and iPad. The outer buttons turn the volume up or down as needed, while the center button's actions depend upon the number of times it is pressed. When pressed once, the button controls pause/play for music and answer/end phone calls. Two quick presses of the button skips your music to the next track, while three presses skips to the beginning to the current track. You can also activate fast forward or fast reverse by holding the button on the second or third press, respectively. The remote/mic works with iPod nano (4th generation or later), iPod classic (120GB, 160GB), iPod touch (2nd generation or later), iPhone 3GS or later, and iPad. Audio is supported by all iPod models and iPad.

Note: The center button will only control pause/play music and answer/end calls on other brands of smartphones.

Freebit Ear Tips: The JBL Synchros Reflect-I in-ear sport headphones include three pairs of Freebit ergonomic ear tips, making sure there's a size to fit most everyone. These ear tips are angled to match your ear canal, and have flanges that help keep them in your ears, even during the most rigorous activities.

Magnetic Cable Management: Each ear bud has a magnet at the back of the ear bud that enables you to keep them securely clasped together around your neck when they're not in use.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I bought one for my son, last year. He says it delivers more bass and detail than the Apple ear phones you get with apple products. It really stays on the ear and it is extremely comfortable. [ David  Dec 16, 2015 ]
generally good reviews and cost [ Paul  Jan 18, 2016 ]

3 questions already asked

Walter-- The volume controls do not work on Android, only the pause/play button which works for music and answering/hanging up calls. [ Jonathan  Mar 06, 2015 ]
Hi Walter i bought them for my son who uses it with his iPhone and they work great. I really do not know with an android device. [ MARK  Mar 06, 2015 ]
You may have dropout issues . It happens sometimes if I use them with my pc. But never with my Mac or iphone. [ Ryan  Mar 06, 2015 ]
I play music from my Samsung phone, but the in-line controls don't respond. [ Bob  Mar 06, 2015 ]
Mine worked great with my Android phone and tablet with minimal, if any, loss of functionally. Volume buttons doubled as track shipping for music when held in for a few seconds, call answer worked and doubled as pause button for music. These are also the best ear buds I've ever owned, with superior sound quality. You definitely want them! [ Michael  Mar 06, 2015 ]
Adam, sorry ... I have an iPhone 6 and they are great. They are comfortable in the ear, stay in when running, and have a full sound. I would order them and try it through the phone ... if they are not good, return them. You can do this without taking them all apart. We like them ... bought 4 pairs ... unfortunately we all are using them with an iPhone. Good luck! [ Kathleen  Sep 02, 2015 ]
Adam, these were bought as a gift for my son who has an iPhone 6, so I cannot speak to the volume on a Samsung. [ KENNETH  Sep 01, 2015 ]
Yes, you do. The headphones plug into whatever device you are listening to. [ Laura  Nov 11, 2014 ]
If you do not have a device that allows you to strap your phone to your arm, yes. I usually workout in shorts with pockets and just carry my phone in my pocket while listening with the headphones. Hope this helps [ Elliot  Nov 11, 2014 ]
The cord is plenty long for me, and I use them on runs and while working. Best in-ear headphones I've had. [ Talo  Nov 11, 2014 ]
