JBL's new Reflect Eternal Self-Charging Headphones are waiting for development to complete and enter mass production, and JBL has decided to whip up some funding by using crowdfunding.
are still at the prototype stage but rather than waiting for development to complete and mass producing this product as normal, JBL has decided to whip up some PR and funding by using crowdfunding.
The JBL Reflect Eternal: Self-Charging Headphones are now on IndieGogo, with the product;s shipping to be estimated for October 2020. If you wait until October these headphones will come with an RRP of EUR116 but at the moment there is an opportunity to be an 'early adopter' and snag a set for EUR89 with free shipping.
According to JBL, the wireless headphones offer virtually unlimited playtimem powered by Exeger's Powerfoyle technology. They are turning natural and artificial light into energy. Average wireless headphones require charging after 20-30 hours of playtime. With the JBL REFLECT Eternal, the more time spent outside each day, the more hours of playtime you get between charges. Power is stored on the internal 700mAh Li-Po battery.
JBL says that if a user spends an average of 2.5 hours per day outside you will never have to recharge these headphones via the wired connection. However, if you only grab an hour of daylight, your 24 hour battery will get extended to 42 hours of playtime.
Key features of these headphones include 40mm drivers for JBL signature sound with Dynamic Frequency Response Range of 20Hz-20kHz, USB Speed-charge port (12 mins = 2 hours of use, 2hrs for a full charge from empty), hands free calling support, multi-point connection support, Google Voice Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Ambient Aware and TalkThru technology, IPX4 rating, Bluetooth 5.0 with A2DP V1.3, AVRCP V1.5, HFP V1.6.
