JBL Reflect Mini BT
In-ear wireless Bluetooth® sports headphones (Black)
Our take on the JBL Reflect Mini BT by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Runner-approved headphones, now even better
The extra-small JBL Reflect Mini BT earbuds (pictured in teal) stay stable and secure during workouts while music plays wirelessly from your phone.
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.

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 ]
