Review- The JBL Reflect Flow true wireless earbuds. #Tech #JBL #TrueWireless

The latest true wireless in for testing is from JBL which are a well known brand in the audio industry,recently we tried out the Tune 120 true wireless earbuds which did not disappoint.

The Reflect flow are on the larger side this time around and might not suit everyone especially those with smaller ears. They come in a really cool charging case though which I like they sport BT 5.0 have an IPX 7 rating and quick charging but my only real caveat is micro USB charging.

Ambient aware mode is a welcome feature on the Reflect Flow and a welcome move and a feature starting to trickle throughout many manufacturers earbuds which allows you to listen to your surroundings or simply tap to allow the outside in for a conversation for an example.

The features on the Reflect flow are good but one or two shortcomings and options split between both earbuds. There is no volume control on these which some might find odd and there is no reverse track. On starting up you get that signature guitar string noise when plugged into your ears. The left earbud allows for ambient aware and skip tracks,the right earbud allows for play/pause and call options and holding for two seconds gives you access to your voice assistants.

There is no touch there is a button beneath the surface but this is fine as the area is big enough to hit the right spot for me and each command worked for me all the time every time which makes life easy on the go or just at home relaxing.

Sound quality is great across the board and these again deliver a great bass sound, treble is also better here,mids highs and lows all great too and another thing LOUD!! Dynamic sound is great especially watching films or you tube for example and overall sound is best classed as clean.Call quality is great,crisp and clear audio comes through both sides on calls but you can only use the right side independently this is common though as a whole in the industry. I noticed no lag latency either which is another important asset on any earbuds.

Battery life is great up to 20 hours from the case 10 hours from one charge and ten mins quick charge will give you an hour, You have an LED indicator on the case itself too which is handy. My final gripe would be no app despite JBL having an app this would be ideal for you EQ settings but for the price I cant complain overall for where they deliver elsewhere.
