Test: JBL Reflect Flow Pro – Steady for sports

This is a headset that should primarily withstand and sit firmly in place. The area of ​​use is therefore primarily sports activities and we notice the adaptations by the headphones being water and dust resistant according to IP68 standard and also by the rubber wings that come with and which will ensure that the headphones are extra firmly in place in your ears, even during physical activity . They can do it well. I test different sizes of both wings and rubber plugs, three of each are included, and find a combination that suits me well. In the app that JBL offers, there is a test so you can with the help of different test sounds get a confirmation that the headphones fit well and I get it.

In addition to sitting firmly and withstanding water, this headset of course offers a lot more. There is active noise reduction here and you can also charge the case wirelessly, not only via usb-c cable which is the second option.

The app offers several different sound modes that you can switch between. They adjust the sound so that it either has the best possible quality, prioritizes stable connection or prioritizes that audio and video are in sync when watching videos. I can quickly see that it works. When I watch a clip from SVT Play, I notice that the sound only comes a moment late and by switching to the mode with priority lip sync, the problem is fixed. In the app, I can also adjust the functions that different pressures on the headphones’ touch surfaces result in. You can choose between controlling music, noise reduction, volume and voice assistant for each of the headphones. The app also has functions for finding the headphones if you place them nearby and allows you to make some other settings. The Find function allows you to play a loud sound in the headphones so that it is possible to hear where you placed them. It works well at several room distances when I put them between the pillows in the sofa, but it presupposes that the headphones are free and connected to the phone. If they are in the case, this function will not work.

The music sound in the headphones is acceptable but far from impressive. There is no support for high-resolution sound in AptX format and we have in previous tests been on how JBL usually brags about its “JBL signature sound”, but what distinguishes this is rather that it sounds watered down and thin except that the base is screwed up. No really balanced sound then and hardly anything to brag about. Especially not considering the price tag. There are significantly cheaper lures with better sound.

The noise reduction in the headphones is noticeable without being impressive. It makes a difference when I use for example for traffic noise, fan and so on, but still lets through a lot of noise.

When we make calls, we do not receive any direct complaints from those we call. My voice sounds good, even if I hear a call from a headset. Even in slightly more noisy environments, the headset manages to distinguish my voice and prioritize it over rustling, other voices in the background or, for example, sounds from when I walk on a gravel path.
