When it comes to exercise, not many things in the world could motivate you as much as some good music could. The adrenaline rush from energetic beats is essential to some while they go through a rigorous workout in the gym or a relaxing run on the road.
And what else could make that happen as effectively as a great pair of earphones?
But here’s the deal: when it comes choosing a pair of sports earphones, the list of options could be fairly overwhelming to choose from. After all, what comes cheap is not good, and what is good does not come cheap.
Thus, the quandary to maintain a balance between quality, durability, and affordability gets to be difficult. But then products such as the JBL Reflect Mini 2 make their appearance, and it seems that you have struck a chord with the music Gods. So what is that makes JBL Reflect Mini 2 so good?
Let’s find out.
JBL Reflect Mini 2 Product Description
The JBL Reflect Mini 2 is JBL’s latest iteration of its JBL Reflect Mini line. The series was introduced as an economical version for athletic use earphones, and it does not disappoint on that front.
Even while being at a competitive price, the JBL Reflect Mini 2 comes with all the features that you would expect from a high-end pair of earphones. It is powered by Bluetooth; it is lightweight, sweatproof and water-resistant; it has a 10-hour battery-life to sustain through multiple exercise routines, and it has a powerful bass-centric sound profile to keep you motivated during your workout.
Due to its ergonomic design, the JBL Reflect Mini 2 sports a secure fit for almost all ear types without feeling like its bulking on one’s ear. Its aluminum build is comfortable yet easy on the eyes, and the four different colors that it comes in all boast of the ability of having a reflective design. This means that you can wear them during a nighttime run while being reassured of added safety.
The earphones themselves are soft to the touch and the built-in remote provides a nifty feature to switch between tracks quickly. All in all, it remains a winner on the built front.
Wireless Connectivity and Battery Life
If the build, sweatproof feature, and the design left any doubts in your mind, then the wireless connectivity of the JBL Reflect Mini 2 puts a final stamp on the idea that they make a great pair to wear during a workout.
The earphones connect seamlessly to any Bluetooth device even while operating on a wireless module, provide a battery life of 10 hours. They also come with the feature of quick-charge, which makes them have a battery life of an hour with just 15 minutes of charging. This makes them great for when you are short on time and battery, but cannot wait for hours for the device to get charged.
The sound quality of the JBL Reflect Mini 2 is great on all fronts, especially on bass. The added bass with each beat makes them a good choice for those who enjoy a jump to their step with that added enhancement to their acoustics during a workout.
The overall sound profile, minus the bass, also remains great. Some people might need to adjust the equalizer to get an optimal experience on their favorite type of music, but that can easily be done through almost all phones or music players these days.
Overall, the JBL Reflect Mini 2 remains a great pair that could be appreciated by almost everyone. The only thing to nitpick at here is how the earphones do not have a battery indicator to show how much juice is remaining. But then again, that’s us being demanding while being a budget.
Besides that tiny aspect, the JBL Reflect Mini 2 makes for an amazing choice and comes with a high recommendation. If you are looking for a pair of sports earphones that would not break the bank, then the JBL Reflect Mini 2 is the choice to make.
