Taping on your touchscreen or fiddling with your smartwatch to change music is so yesterday. JBL has got new headphones that let you change your music simply by waving – the world’s first in-ear Bluetooth headphones with motion sensor control”.
Available in two different models – Reflect Response, and the Synchros S210BT, you can use motion to start/stop and change your music, and even answer your calls. JBL calls it the “wave-to-control” technology but unfortunately, the company did not mention just what sort of motions you’ll need to do in order for it to work.
The JBL Reflect Response is the lower-end of the two. It’s a pair of earphones that features comfortable in-ear earbuds, behind-the-neck ergonomic sports design, complete with sweat-proof technology and JBL Signature Sound. Built for athletes, the Reflect Response headphone is available in red, blue, green and black.
The JBL Synchros S210BT on the other hand is a headphone with superior audio quality. It has a balanced armature that delivers astounding clarity with the dynamic driver’s deep, punchy bass response in a small form factor.
Both headphones are designed with a patented ergonomics design that makes it comfortable to wear for an extended period of time. These new headphones can provide up to eight hours of usage in a single charge. The JBL Reflect Response has a retail price of US$149 (RM535), and the Synchros S210BT costs US$199.95 (RM720).
