Overview

Our take on the JBL Reflect Mini BT

I've purchased several JBL Reflect headphones as gifts for family and friends. When I was researching workout headphones, I scoured running publications and customer reviews. They kept steering me toward JBL's in-ear sports series. And the Reflect Mini BT 'phones are the company's smallest and lightest yet — these tiny earbuds feel like they're barely there.

Runner-approved headphones, now even better

I've purchased several JBL Reflect headphones as gifts for family and friends. When I was researching workout headphones, I scoured running publications and customer reviews. They kept steering me toward JBL's in-ear sports series. And the Reflect Mini BT 'phones are the company's smallest and lightest yet — these tiny earbuds feel like they're barely there.

Music plays wirelessly from your phone or music player over Bluetooth®, allowing you to move freely. Tunes pump powerfully with no dangling cord interfering with your exercise.

Comfortable, reflective, and sweat-proof for tough outdoor training

You get four different-sized ear tips, so you can find the right fit. Two of those are JBL's flexible silicone sports 'buds that feel soft and comfortable for your entire workout. They're designed to avoid nerves and pressure points inside the ear that can cause pain or discomfort.

They're called "Reflect" because their highly-visible design helps keep you safe outside. And you won't have to cut a grueling outdoor run short. These 'phones can handle a little sweat and rain, and will play up to eight hours per charge, so your soundtrack keeps going as long as you do.

Hands-free, wireless calling

You can take phone calls wirelessly via Bluetooth. There's a mic built in and a three-button remote on the cable that connects the left and right earpieces. Use the remote to answer calls, skip songs, and play and pause music. The reflective cable sits behind your head.

  • extra-small and lightweight earbuds

4 stars because of the sound quality. There is zero bass. Music didn't sound very good. Sounded good for YouTube and phone calls. Connected every time without a problem. They were comfortable enough. I returned these and bought some Beats.

Pros: Paired and connected easy Worked good for phone calls

Amazing!

Cheryl from Palmyra, VA on 2/4/2018

I LOVE these headphones!! I have small ears so it's so hard to find the right fit. These fit perfectly! I am also a runner-and I have always ran with one ear in. It's not safe otherwise and at the gym I have too also. Which means listening to all the "noise". These headphones isolate MOST noise, but you can hear the person talking to you-and they can't hear your music. It's BRILLIANT!! I just wish I had ordered them sooner!!!!

Pros: Sound quality, noise isolation

Cons:

Great value!

Rob from Lawrence, KS on 1/12/2018

I like the fit for physical activity. Very good battery life. I listen mostly to podcasts, but sound seems to be very good. I would recommend!

Pros: Fit securely Good battery life Good sound Overall good value

Cons: Seem to like "line of sight" for best connectivity

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Poor quality for the price. My power button got stuck when I pressed it in. Then the LED power indicator doesn't seem to be working . This is just after 2-3 weeks. the sound quality is okay. I guess I can't expect much for a water proof bluetooth headphones. I plan on returning this headphones because it's broken and i'm not satisfied with it.

Pros: ?

Cons: feels and looks like a cheap headphone control buttons are small and hard to press sound quality is nothing special.

The sound quality is really good for sports headphones and they're pretty durable under normal use. My wife uses these for running and they held up for a year until she lost them. Now I'm buying her the same ones for Xmas, again, this year. She was adamant about getting the exact same ones.

Cons:

Great sound for price

The JBL Reflect Mini BT give Beats headphones a run for their money. The JBL are lightweight and sweatproof. There are multiple headphone options for the user. On the negative side the sound fall flat. Other than that I would recommend this product to other users.

Pros: -battery power - lightweight -multiple headphone sizes

Cons: - flat sound - complicated instructions manual

Angela from San Diego, CA on 11/4/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wish Crutchfield hadn't recommended these headphones. They fell apart after a little less than 90 days and for some dimwitted reason I forgot to purchase additional insurance. I think the sound was better on these than really very cheap small earbuds off a different online retailer, but since they never fit my ears right I really don't know that for certain. Don't buy these, it's not worth it.

Pros: None

Cons: Fell apart in under 90 days, never fit my ears well.

Pros: Wster resistance

Good Fit and Sound, Terrible Instructions

HH from Las Vegas, NV on 7/20/2016

These are pretty good and fit the bill for exercising to music without being tethered to your phone. Have not used for telephone discussion--so just can't say. There is plenty of information but as usual it was all written by a lawyer--full of disclaimers and what not--very skimpy on instructions so as one other rater said, you are learn to use on the fly.

Pros: Lightweight, good sound.

Cons: Terrible instructions.

Defective product

Sean from Fairfax, VA on 5/16/2016

When your replacement pair of a product also fails, it's clearly not a pair of headphones worth buying. Something is wrong with the charger port. First pair lasted 6 months, replacement pair didn't last two weeks. I have no other problems with the functionality, comfort, sound quality for that price. But I can say I've tried a lot of headphones, never got these wet or put them through much, and i'll never buy a JBL product again. Check the reviews online, it's clearly a bad, bad unreliable product.

Pros: Price, Ease of use

Cons: Defective, unreliable

Great little headphones

Kevin from Livermore, CA on 5/8/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'll be honest from the get-go, I don't sit and listen to $500 in ear monitors all day long. I get what falls into the "normal music lover" level of equipment. I have been using Klipsch Reference S4's after an older pair of S4i's got lost somewhere on a Southwest Jet. Originally I wanted to get these just for a good bluetooth with a sealed ear piece. I have a 7 month old and sometimes you just have to have a conversation while they are crying on Mommy's shoulder in the other room. In general BT designs don't do a darn thing in that environment. They may filter or reduce the noise, but that doesn't mean you can hear a darn thing. Sliding Down from Edgar Meyer: Uncommon Ritual: Edgar Meyer is one of my all time favorite musicians. He always seems to pull together a fantastic group of musicians to make music that speaks to my soul. Sliding Down is one of those pieces. I often find myself wishing that this piece were recorded with better definition, until now. The imaging is very much there with these headphones. You can hear and almost feel every pluck of the sting. The stings are precise. Some headphones leave them feeling overly warm and muddy, that is not happening here. This track has a lot to listen to from the mid-bass on up and every sound seems to be reproduced without any noticeable sacrifices. Barber Adagio for Strings: Man oh man, was I pleasantly surprised when I pulled this one up. These headphones are able to bring you the full r

Pros: Sound great, easy to use, comfortable for most

Cons: Nowhere to put them when not in use

JBL REFLECT MINI

JJake from york, ME on 1/31/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I don't care about reflection or sweat proof. I just want cordless earbuds for the gym. These perform perfectly. Plenty of volume and bass from my iPhone 6s and you can forward tracks. Wore them all day at home and never felt uncomfortable. I also removed the wing ear cavity things and the buds stay in even while doing cardio and weightlifting. Seriously impressed!

Pros: Incredibly convenient. Comfortable. Stylish.

Cons: None

Great devices

Dave from Colorado on 1/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Several of these were given as gifts. From what I have heard, they a definitely "legit." Work great when used during workouts.

Pros: Sweatproof. Bluetooth, so no wires to the music device getting in the way of workout exercises. Fit well in ears.

Cons:

Just OK, good wireless qualities

Louis from New York on 1/1/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Considering these are "JBL" headphones, I guess I was expecting more than just average audio with these. I paid the full price $99 just before Christmas. Today I see they are $79. Even at $79, I consider them overpriced. Buy them for the wireless convenience, don't expect much in the audio department.

Pros: Immediate Bluetooth connection with my HTC One phone. They look very good. Fit my ears well with the installed ear pieces (extra sizes are included.

Cons: Bass response seems lacking, making them sound tinny. Sounds similar to much less expensive, relatively unknown brand Bluetooth wireless I already have.

Faulty product

KristiB from Minnesota on 12/27/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unfortunately I was never able to use this product. Despite trying all the suggestions from the technical department the headphones would not charge. The replacement set had the same problem. I returned the second set. I am now waiting for a different brand of headphones

Pros: Nice looking! Fit well

Cons: I was never able to get this product to work as it would not charge!.

I like them!

KRK4JC from Texas on 12/25/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They paired with my LG G30 Phone and the latest iPod Nano right away. The fit is nice, but takes a little adjusting so that you know what works best for your ears. I love the sound quality and these will be great for the gym and won't get in the way like the LG's that they are replacing. Unlike the LG's, these don't have any skip forward/backward music controls so you'll need to do that on the device. Since the power button also functions as a mute button with a single tap, I think that the JBL Egrs could design the basic music controls into the Volume Up/Down in a similar way to the Mute. Not a deal killer though and I really like them.

Pros: Pairs easily, light weight and non-obtrusive. Nice sound quality with a tight fit that blocks out much of the outside noise.

Cons: Lack music player controls for skip forward and backward

Good if you can figure out how to use them.

Drake from Nevada on 12/6/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've only used them a couple of times so far and they seen pretty sweet. However, they came with very minimal instructions and I couldn't find any instructions online. So I am using trial and error in figuring out how to use them.

Pros: Good fit, good sound, small and light.

Cons: Almost no instructions on how to use them.

If you are able to return it, then do so. I purchased this for my husband and it kept giving him the same problem. I thought it was defected and had it exchange, but had to finally return the second one and just got a refund. Sorry for the late response. [ Zenaida  Mar 15, 2017 ]
I had the same problems after 6 months, they were great up until then. I do beleive they are. It really swear proof. As I only wore mine at the gym for 45-an hour a day. And they didn't last as long as some of the other brands out there. [ Billy  Feb 22, 2017 ]

The microphone on this headphones should have no issues replaying your voice commands after you initiate Siri from the phone. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Feb 15, 2016 ]  Staff
Yes, works great [ Mary Catherine  Feb 16, 2016 ]
Yes. Bluetooth is not phone or operating-system specific. Some older Bluetooth phones may support hands-free calling but not stereo audio music streaming which is why we say "compatible smartphones" I hope that helps!

I don't see any mention of there being extra technology in these to make them more sweat proof. I do think the remote is stronger, more durable (less likely to break if accidently stepped on) than the ones in the other model. [ Paul  Dec 21, 2015 ]  Staff
Hey Steve. I own these myself. I just took a look at them and it's hard to say since I'm not sure about Comply. The neck on them looks pretty standard so I'm hopeful that you could replace the tips. They are angled in towards the ears. We have a 60 day unconditional return policy so you can get them, give them a shot and return them if you aren't happy with them. I use them mainly in the gym and occasionally for runs. Bluetooth range is excellent. I've been satisfied with mine. Hope this helps. [ JOHN  Apr 29, 2016 ]
I'm sorry I don't know much about that type of bud. I would assume whatever size you normally wear in a gel ear bud. [ Mary Catherine  Apr 28, 2016 ]
It takes 30 min to an hour to get full charge [ Andrey  May 18, 2016 ]
Forgot to add this but I believe the JBL E50T are over the ear for about $20 more I have the E40T they are on the ear but enjoy them but would suggest the E50T [ David  Jan 27, 2016 ]
No it doesn't but for the price very nice set of earphones works great with your phone as a Bluetooth earphone very pleased with mine I use them everyday hope this helps [ David  Jan 27, 2016 ]
There is not an over the ear option in the box. [ JEREMY A  Jan 27, 2016 ]
Sorry, no just a couple in-ear sizes. BTW I have replaced the tips that came with the headphones with Comply Foam - fits better for me. Love the sound of the headphones, especially for the price [ Steven Bruce  Jan 27, 2016 ]
Mine didn't. There are a few different rubber adjusters for in ear fit though. [ Drake  Jan 27, 2016 ]
