JBL Reflect Aware "C" Headphones

JBL Reflect Aware

While we're talking about headphones, HTC and JBL partnered up to create some truly unique and awesome headphones. These aren't your typical headphones, and are more of a next-generation in ear monitor that plug in via the USB Type-C charging port, not the 3.5mm headphone jack. These are one of the first USB Type-C headphones to hit the market, although HTC has yet to announce pricing or start shipping them.

These sweat-proof and tangle free headphones feature active and adjustable noise cancelation. JBL Reflect Aware C Earphones combine digital audio and active noise cancellation, so you can shut the outside world out and enjoy better than CD level music.

Owners can select how much noise cancellation is being done to hear as little, or as much of the outside world as possible. Perfect for while at work and still need to hear, or to tune-out and get a good work out in at the gym.

The JBL Reflect C have large 14.8mm Dynamic drivers for great sound, and lots of power going to them thanks to the USB Type-C port connector. These are unique headphones worth trying once they become available.

    Why cant HTC release a Car Dock like they did for m7,m8 for this phone I spend a lot of time in my vehicle and need that charging cradle for my phone! I hate stupid universal docks, extra step involved if you want it charging. should be just plug and play.

      I totally agree. The M8 cradle was very good indeed – I tried to adapt it but it was beyond my skill level!

    If you want your Battery to stay factory fresh and last a very very long time. ONLY use the USB to charge it. Never plug in a fast charger.
    The USB uses 3+ volts and the Plug in uses over twice that for a fast charge at the expense of the battery’s life. You will notice that the battery does not heat up with the USB charger and the plug in one will cook the battery to a noticeable amount. That is killing the battery.

      Dan is confusing voltage with amperage. A USB port is always rated at 5V but most chargers use a lower voltage ~4V. It’s the amperage that gets cranked up to 2.4 or 3.0 by Quick Charge v2.0 or v3.0.

      It’s true that charging more quickly at a higher amperage will shorten the life of most batteries of all types. However, it appears that Qualcomm has designed intelligent circuitry into the Quick Charge specs to prevent that. I have not noticed any difference in the temperature of the battery or case when comparing the Quick Charge 3.0 with an older 1A charger.
