JBL's Reflect Mini 2 has a couple of things going for it.
For starters it's a lightweight set of sweat-proof, in-ear, wireless sports headphones that should fit most people's ears comfortably and securely.
And like the previous model, the cord is reflective, which means it will glow at night if a light is shined on it That's a safety feature that will appeal to some night time runners or walkers.
The headphones come with a few different silicone wings and tips to help you get a good fit, a nice compact rubber carrying case is also included.
Battery life is rated at ten hours, which is pretty good and there's a quick charge feature that gives you an hours worth of juice from a fifteen minute charge.
Earphones do protrude from your ears a little but overall GLB has done a good job updating the design of the Reflect Mini.
As I said, they do fit well, and when you're dealing with noise isolating headphones like this a tight seal is crucial to.
Maximizing sound quality.
The truth is if these earphones sound a little better, they might be a great set of sports headphones.
But they only managed to sound slightly above average, and callers weren't all that impressed when I used them as a headset when making cell phone calls.
It's not that they sound bad, but they're just a little dull.
By that, I mean they lack clarity, and aren't terribly dynamic.
In other words, they sound like a middle-of-the-road bluetooth headphone.
If they cost less than $60 that's a give them a shot for the design alone.
But if there are a $100 a list prize I'm a little less enthuse about them.
The bottom line is you should probably wait for them to come down a prize a bit.
They are good just not necessarily a $100 good.
