The JBL E45BT Bluetooth Headphone


When I bought the iPhone 7 plus, the first thing I lamented on was the lack of a headphone jack. And I thought, good thing I have a bluetooth headphone… or so I thought.

The first thing I did when I got my iPhone sans the auxiliary jack is tried out my existing and trusted Remax 195HB (see review here). Lo and behold, it didn’t work. It can’t even find my headphone! Now I’m starting to curse the high heavens why I even bothered with a top of the line smartphone – I’m not even an iPhone fan!

So I went to the nearest Audiophile shop which is in, as usual, Robinsons Galleria and tried out some cans. Of course I bought the latest but the most affordable of the bunch.

Enter the JBL E45BT

The JBL E45BT sports the following features:

  • JBL Signature Sound
  • Up to 16 hour battery life
  • Two hour recharge time
  • Seamless switching between devices
  • Comfort-it fabric headband
  • One button universal remote with mic
  • Sound controls on ear cups
  • Tangle-free fabric cable
  • Improved ergonomic design

(according to their website)

Documentation aside, let’s now head over to my actual usage. 

Disclaimer below.


I’m not a true-blue audiophile, my honest opinion will only be based from my previous experience with a wired Sennheiser HD201 headphone and my previous wireless Remax 195HB.

Charging time and Battery Life

The JBL E45BT sets the bar higher when it comes to wireless technology. Coming from a charging time of 3 hours with my Remax, the JBL Bluetooth headphone powered by Harman only takes 2 hours. And with that couple of hours alone, I literally was able to use it for 15 hours (my day tour in Bohol, found on my Travel Review soon).

Ergonomics and Portability

Convenient and sturdy, the JBL fits my pouch thanks to its 120 degree twist mechanism, making it my favorite daily driver.

The good thing also about this headphone is that it fits snuggly in your ear. The cans never did made my ear uncomfortable with extended use (remember the 15 hour day tour) unlike with the other wireless headphone that I have wherein I just couldn’t make myself comfortable for long hours despite switching or moving my headphone to fit me (I know you tried this: moving the headband at the top of your head, adjusting it down so that it is being your head, lowering it just above your neck).
Voice Calls and Volume

The Bluetooth from JBL also has better voice call quality as compared with the Remax thanks to the advanced technology on their omni-mic. No more calls where they can’t hear you. 

It still cannot replace putting your phone near your ear but wireless voice calls have improved a lot over the years…

Bottom line

In conclusion, the JBL E45BT is a great buy despite being priced twice higher than my Remax 195HB but I guess that’s the price you have to pay for quality. 

You can never go wrong with JBL.
Go buy yours at Lazada
