3. JBL T110BT

Best Build Quality
  • Best for indoor use
  • Trusted brand factor
  • 1-year warranty

JBL is a very popular audio related equipment manufacturer that has won many accolades for its best in class earphones, Bluetooth speakers and headphones.

The T110BT from JBL is a budget wireless Bluetooth earphone that features the widely acclaimed JBL Pure Bass feature for clean and rich bass with zero artificiality.

The simple look and feel

The JBL T110BT resembles most of the other wireless earphones in the market.

There are no gimmicks added to the hardware.

Everything works as advertised.

The flat tangle free wire is comfortable when wrapped around the neck.

Also, the earpiece has a magnetic lock feature that will keep them together without dangling around your neck when not in use.

The only gripe we have with the design of this earphone is the length of the cable. It seems a bit too much for our liking.

Sounds like… a typical JBL product

As the name suggests, the Pure Bass feature can be felt right from the first song you’re enjoying with this product. The bass is clean and distortion free even at maximum volume.

The vocals are crisp and clear.

We tested this product with songs from various genres of music and found that it does justice to the price tag.

However, at times we felt that the treble is a bit weaker. But this may be due to our listening setup and you might not feel it after all.

The Extra features

Even though the JBL T110BT doesn’t have the Active noise cancellation, the snug fit of the earpiece into the ear canal does help it to have some sort of immunity from the outside noise.

Since the inline remote is a separate piece of hardware, the buttons are easily accessible.

The mic on the inline remote is pretty sensitive and picks up our voice easily even when surrounded by background noise.

Battery life

Since the JBL T110 is very lightweight, the company had to make some compromise with the battery capacity.

Luckily, the reduction is not much pronounced.

This wireless earphone has a 120 mAh Li-ion battery inside the inline remote that can be charged via the supplied micro USB cable.

The battery lasts for about 6 hours of music listening with 75% volume levels.

This may vary according to the type of music played and the volume levels.

Should you buy it or not?

You should – if you are that person who values the brand factor.

The sound output from the product is decent and you won’t notice any sound distortion even at max volume levels.

If you don’t mind the average battery life at the expense of a lightweight wireless Bluetooth earphone, this is one of the best choices out there.

Miscellaneous

The inline remote of this product is of high quality. The keys are tactile and offer very good feedback when pressed.

The mic embedded in this remote picks up the voice without distortions and provides a very pleasant voice calling experience.
