JBL® Reflect Aware™ – World’s first sports headphone with Ambient Aware and ANC

The JBL Reflect Aware is the world’s first sports headphone that gives athletes the ability to mix ambient sounds with active noise cancelling performance. The Ambient AwareTM technology allows any athlete to optimize their audio performance for every workout.

With conventional in-ear noise cancelling headphones, today’s athlete is limited to only full noise reduction or no noise reduction. Extensive research with athletes of all levels shows that workout locations vary, and therefore the ideal headphone needs to be able to adapt to varying environments. The new JBL Reflect Aware headphone delivers both best in class active noise cancelling performance and the ability to mix in sound from the environment for greater awareness of the surroundings when the user wants it. Giving the athlete better contr ol of what they hear, they can remain focused on their workout knowing that they will hear important sounds when they needs to. For full adaptive noise control, the JBL Ambient Aware app not only gives the athlete control of the ambient noise level, but also custom EQ settings to create the perfect audio sound for your workout.

Another distraction common to conventional in-ear noise cancelling headphones is the battery box. Designed to draw power and audio directly from the lightning connector on Apple devices, the JBL Reflect Aware headphones are not burdened by the bulky battery box. It comes with a small 4-button remote control to enable standard play/pause and volume controls in addition to ANC on/off.

The JBL Reflect Aware is designed as a piece of sport equipment, with a rugged, sweat-proof design and patented ergonomic eartips for hours of comfortable wear, not to mention powerful sound you expect from JBL. Now, you can stay in total control of your zone with the world’s first ANC sport headphone on the market.
