JBL E45BT Review | Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Headphone
The earcup pressure feels nice, the pressure is focus on top at the tip of the ear and front part of the ear. After using it for a while there is minor discomfort on eartips which typical for on-ear headphones and spectacle user like me. Thankfully, it has thick padding to equalize the pressure evenly to minimize the discomfort as much as possible. Sound isolation is good as it block majority sound, still can hear people talk but halved.
The headbands have a thin padding with a fabric lining. The headbands wrap around my head well but if you shake it a little, it will move out of place easily. The right side houses the button controls and mic. To power on the device just slide the power button and it will boot up instantly. The button controls media playback, volume and to quick button to answer calls. It have a 2.5mm port for your headphone cable and a Bluetooth button for pairing. The left side has the micro USB port for charging.
The cable is 1.3 meters long, soft braided that untangle easily. The cable houses the mic and controls, press once for answering calls or play/pause, twice for next track and three times for previous track. Is compatible with both IOS and Android.
It is advertised to last up to 16 hours, what we gotten from our test is 32 hours with an Iphone 6 on the 5th bar. The headphone takes about 2 hours of charging. The JBL E45BT uses Bluetooth 4.0 and the stable range is 12 meters. It is power by a 40mm Dynamic driver that features JBL signature sound.

Pia Mia – Do It Again
The bass is energetic and well bodied, it doesn’t eat into vocals much and fades well.
Tiaan – Be Ok
The low bass feels super energetic and you can feel the air pressure booming. The low bass frequency is well control and there is no distortion.
Ed Sheeran – Touch and Go
The guitar chords have the right amount of shine at the mark 0.50 to 2.10. The mid range to upper-mid frequency is good. The vocal humming is eargasm.
Violinder – Raindrops
It has the right amount of shine for piano/violin tone. There is a balance between bass/drums and piano/violin tone, It does not feel like one overpowering the other.
This one of the best on-ear headphone we tried so far. It covers the range well from low range to hi range, thus a good all rounder. I’m surprised how it performs at the high range as many on-ear just focus on low range to mid range.
