Harman and JBL have announced two new lines of headphones today including the JBL Synchros E-Series and the JBL Synchros Reflect sport in-ears.
Where as the Reflect series is designed more for active use or with workouts, the E-Series headphones are more tailored towards day-to-day listening. They are shipping in 4 different models: E50BT around-ear headphones with Bluetooth (MSRP $149.95), E40BT on-ear headphones with Bluetooth (MSRP $99.95), E30 on-ear headphones (MSRP $79.95), and the E10 in-ear headphones (MSRP $39.95).
The Reflect series will come in two versions, one with Bluetooth and one without. The Synchros Reflect have a $59.99 MSRP and the Bluetooth version will run you $99.95 direct from JBL/Harman. They feature a rugged, sweat proof design, a brightly reflective cable designed for comfort and visibility at night, and magnetic cable management to keep cables firmly secured and out of the way.
The new versions don’t appear to be available on Amazon or other retailers right now, but previous model JBL Synchros headphones have generally received around 4+ star ratings.
