Running earbuds:Jbl reflect aero tws review

The Reflect Aero TWS have a similar design to the Flow Pro, but the headphones and the case are smaller. They have an in-ear tip and a wing, with three sizes of each included in the box.The headphones sit securely in the ear once you have picked out the correct wing.You can go for the largest wing to keep the buds in place during sweaty runs on hot days.So how do they performance when they are used in running? This article has compiled some real reviews from users to help you better understand.

“I initially bought these headphones and the jbl live free 2 tws for myself to see which ones I would like best. As far as the reflect aero goes the sound for me was good. As far as appearance I felt like they look too big and bulky in my ear. Now on the other hand I gave these to my husband and he seems to like them and think that it fits good. My husband also likes to make music so having decent sound quality is a must. He thinks the quality is good, but could be better. My husband worked five hours with these headphones on and said that they fell out twice. The battery life seems to be pretty good. When it comes to calls they are great. No noise in background and the sound quality is clear. I end up choosing the jbl live free 2 tws for myself because of how they fit and looked in my ear with all that being texted, there were no regrets in my decision.”

“I really wanted to like these. I bought them for running and working out, so a good fit is important. Unfortunately the body of these earbuds is sized so large that it’s hard to find a fit that is both comfortable and secure. No matter what sized tip/wing combo I tried, they fall out. If they don’t fall out, the sound quality is too quiet.
The real straw that broke the camel’s back is that the sweatier one gets, the more likely they are to fall out.
Final verdict: not a good option for running or getting sweaty. Unfortunately they also only charge intermittently. Not ready for prime time, these.”

“This is closer to a 5 star rating but there are no increments between 4 and 5 and I tend to rely heavily on long battery life. Honestly, these buds are so good it’s worth the minor trade off. Here is why:
I stopped using my Apple Airpod Pros when they failed after 9 months. Naturally, when I attempted to claim warranty work Apple told me they wouldn’t honor the warranty because it was my fault, the buds got wet and that corrodes the connections. I run outdoors so that did not come as a surprise. That’s when I found out the Apple product only has a water resistance of IPX 4. I set out to find a more water-resistant set and found the JBLs, which are rated so high that they are virtually waterproof. I was pleased to find that they sounded a lot better than any earbuds I’ve ever owned, had fantastic noise cancellation, ambient noise mode and talk-through. The best part was that, when combined with the app, the range of tonal control was virtually unlimited, including the ability to create and save your own personal EQ profiles. I absolutely love wearing these to the gym, running (even in the rain), biking and just putzing around the house. The one minor drawback is that 6 hours seems to be the maximum battery life. The good news is that the charging case recharges them relatively quickly. 4 & 3/4 Stars. Very happy customer here.”

“I did not buy these earbuds off Amazon, but wanted to leave a suggestion to anyone complaining about sound.
I had a pair of JBL earbuds about 5 years ago and their customer service is amazing. I lost my case and I asked their customer service if I could just order a case. They ended up sending me one for free (after proof of purchase). I sadly threw them away by accident and thought I’d “upgrade” to Jabras.
My Jabras lasted 3–3.5 years and I needed to purchase new ones. I decided to try JBL again. The fit is tight. Those “spinner” rubber pieces fit that wing out help lock them in when put in properly. I downloaded the app that they recommended to help personalize my buds. It’s a pretty easy walk through.
I was trying my son’s AirPods to compare my JBL sound and I was so disappointed…..until I discovered you can change the sound and customize. I highly recommend anyone complaining of sound to download the app and customize their sound under the Equalizer. This made the sound quality so much better.
I enjoy the strap that’s connected with the case. Just an extra feature that even Apple or Jabra don’t offer.
Overall, I would definitely purchase another JBL EarPod product, but would most likely select the dangle model instead of the small buds. They can get a little uncomfortable and itchy after wearing for a bit.
Hope this helps.”

“Pros: comfortable, adjustable fit; waterproof through sweat and rain; noise cancelling works fine
Cons: It’s way too difficult to switch sources. I need headphones to pair with my watch for running, phone for general audio use, and iPad for conference calls. But I have to disconnect from all other sources in order to connect to something else and be able to utilize the app to change preferences. Even worse, I have to remove the headphones from my ear and put them back in the case to activate pairing mode. So to use them for running, I have to disconnect my iPad, disconnect my watch, connect to my phone, switch to ambient aware, then re-connect to my watch. And put them back in the case each time. If they added a few buttons, I could pair and change preferences from the headphone. So annoying, I would return them if I could.”

“Despite what TheWireCutter claims I can’t recommend these for using while running, or possible any other activity involving quick, repetitive movements. Beyond that, they are decent-sounding, noise-cancelling earbuds I see myself using day-to-day. Read on for me.
I got these after reading TheWireCutter’s recommendation on headphones for runners. These were going to replace my several-years-old corded headphones. I’ve been leery of using earbuds that lack external retention for running and it appears my concern is valid. These come with three differently-sized earbuds and wings designed so you can tailor the fit to your ears. However, I could not find a combination that would stay in my ears while running. I’m not a competition runner but it is my primary form of exercise and I run at an aggressive pace for several miles at a time. Within a 1/4 mile I found myself fiddling with both sides to keep them in my ears and have had them fall out multiple times. For that alone I can’t recommend these for running. Maybe slower jogging or walking. Sound-wise, these are pretty decent for their type and the noise-cancelling and pass-through options work fairly well. Also, unlike others the touch functions work well being both response but not overly sensitive.
Bottom-line: I think these are decent day-to-day headphones that I’ll keep for use while working or travelling but I cannot recommend them for more strenuous activities like running.”

“I have smaller ears. I find the size of these to be a good fit. I don’t think they are technically “small” but they are smaller than other ear buds. Setup was a breeze and my phone immediately connected to the headset. The fit is nice and I like the silicon piece. I find my right ear bud always slips out while working out/running. Not sure why its always just the right side, but these fit snug. I didn’t have to keep pushing it back into my ear. Sound was good and I was able to talk on the phone while walking and line was clear and the other line had no issues hearing me or having static flood the conversation. I like plug and play. I dont like having to mess with settings or make adjustments. I like that these were ready right out of the box. Holds a nice long charge and haven’t had them die on me yet. I use them daily for listening to audio books and for runs. with all head phones, I didnt notice any “noise cancellation” . I think if anything, outside noise is just a little muffled from the buds in place.”

“I wanted good headphones for running. My partner and I each received a pair, so I’m confident mine aren’t defective because we have the same issues. They fit poorly and either fall out or rattle loose regardless of which components we swap out. They often don’t charge in the case despite cleaning the connection points. The tap controls are finicky. When working, the sound is fine, but not great. I wouldn’t recommend these to anyone and will likely steer clear of JBL products in the future because of how disappointed we are.”

“I was actually a little concerned about fit since I have had little luck with past ear buds and considering the price, reasonably so. I found thought that the fit was the best I had ever had with ear buds!
One drawback is the price. They don’t come cheap. So was the high price worth it? Well, I found the sound to be better than most of the ear buds I have tried. That was a plus. As for the ambient sound vs noise reduction, there is a HUGE difference compared to the others! I was drving a loud noisy diesel truck and it had no bluetooth. Of course, even if it did, I probably wouldn’t be able to hear it over the diesel noise that is so prevalent. The JBL Aeros overcame the noise with no problem.
I mentioned fitment. I have trouble getting ear buds to stay in my ear. And since these are waterproof, I was planning on using them at my complex swimming pool so retention was critical. It took me a little effort to figure out how to get them to fit my ear properly. But once I did, they stayed unlike the others. They also have 3 different cups to fit various ear sizes.
Those plusses made them worth it to me. The reason I didn’t give them 4 stars is the price. They are head and shoulders above the prices of any I have so far looked at. In fact, on average I would dare say double that of most ear buds. For me they were worth it. Others maybe not so much.”

“I bought this based on reviews that said this would be a good product to use while running. But the fit is not good at all. The volume is also limited even in the presence of ambient sound control. It’s too low. The buds keep slipping out of my ears after a few minutes of my run.”
Through the real review of the above users, it is a good earbuds, which can satisfy users. However, it still has some shortcomings, such as the price is too high, not comfortable and stable to wear.There are running headphones on the market that are more comfortable, stable and cost-effctive, such as Wissonly Hi Runner bone conduction headphone, which is a affordable substitute.
