Expert review by : Tim Gideon (



The JBL E45BT are comfortable, bass-forward wireless on-ear headphones that will appeal to anyone seeking a little extra rumble in their music.

Powerful, boosted bass response matched with crisp highs. Comfortable on-ear fit. Can be used in wired, passive mode.

Sculpted sound signature not for purists.

For $100, JBL's E45BT headphones offer a powerful sound signature with boosted lows and crisp, clear highs. The earpads are comfortable, and generally speaking, anyone that considers themself a bass lover will be pleased. In this price range, however,...

The JBL E45BT are decent mixed usage wireless headphones, similar to the , but with an on-ear fit. They have a great battery life and wireless range and they sound good enough for most listeners with a satisfyingly well-balanced sound. Unfortunately,...

Above-average sound quality. ; Great wireless range and battery life.

Sub-par noise isolation. ; Plasticky build quality. ; Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.

Cheap and nasty.


Cheap and nasty which is a surprise/disappointment from JBL. Was really looking forward to receiving these. Sending back for full refund. Don't bother wasting your money or time.

JBL E45BT Headphones


These headphones are small and compact in comparison to some other on ear headphones allowing you to carry them in bag easily. Weight wise, they are quite light to but still feel good quality and the sound from them is nice and crisp and good for...

Good sound and comfortable


Needed a new set of earphones as my Senheiser in-ear were falling apart. Didn't want to pay more than £50 and wanted ease of wireless. These work well with my iPad and sound quality is good enough for my needs. Bass is strong enough and I'm happy with...

Light, adjustable and great sound


Really comfortable to wear. Light enough to not really notice them and fully adjustable. Sound is fantastic with clear voice and deep bass. Charge last at least 8 hours.

Fairy good


+ Good sound for the price. Bluetooth connects well but mine don't quite meet the 10 metre range mark. Good battery life and easy to set up - Top of the headphone band isn't comfortable for long periods. Can fall off when bending over. Volume control...
