Recently, JBL released some earphone offerings for the budget-minded. The first we’re checking out is the JBL T100A, A $15 (direct) in-ear pair with some seriously booming bass. If you favor a well-balanced relationship between highs and lows, this may not be your pair, but if you prefer to feel as if there’s a subwoofer in your ears, pushing out intense lows, the new JBL T100A does so with gusto—something some pairs twice as expensive have trouble doing without distorting. It would be nice if the JBL T100A balanced out its thunderous low-end with a bit more high-mid and high frequency brightness, but things don’t veer too much into muddy territory, and the distortion-free delivery of the JBL T100A is a pretty solid bargain at this price.


Lightweight, in-ear headphones with high-performance drivers for clear, powerful sound.

  • Single button remote/mic

  • PureBass performance

  • High sensitivity, extended frequency response

  • Silicone sleeves: small, medium and large


Enjoy heavyweight sound in lightweight headphones. 

Drawing on expertise learned from building some of the finest loudspeakers in the world, JBL engineers created lightweight, comfortable headphones that deliver signature JBL sound. The T100A’s 8mm drivers generate high sensitivity, extended frequency response and PureBass performance that is deep, powerful and accurate. So you hear the truth from your favorite music. And because we know headphones, like the music they deliver, are an extension of your personal style, JBL T100A’s are available in white, black or red and come with a durable cord for stress-free sound enjoyment. In addition, there’s an in-line microphone that lets you take calls without taking the headphones off.

What’s in the box:

  • 3 sizes of silicone ear tips (S, M, L)

  • Warranty and safety notes


DesignAvailable in black or white with metallic and orange accents, which are emblazoned with the JBL logo, is given a little flair by the flat-style cable and inline remote with its black button. The remote is actually of the only one way variety, so you will not adjust volume but you can play, pause, and skip tracks. This is the way all remotes would be ideally, at this point.The earpieces fit securely once you’ve fiddled with them a bit, but they never seem to create a great seal on the first try—this can be annoying, but using the included shirt clip helps take a bit of the cable tug out of the equation, and makes getting a secure fit easier.
The T100A ships with three pairs of silicone ear tips (small, medium, and large). Call clarity through the inline mic is fine; your call partner will understand you clearly enough.
PerformanceOn tracks with tremendous sub-bass content, like the Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the T100A does not distort, even at maximum volumes—although it produces vibrations at maximum volumes that seem to imply the drivers are awfully close to getting fuzzy. At reasonable listening levels, however, the T100A packs some serious bass thump, and the vibrations disappear. This is a pair of earphones for big bass lovers, pure and simple.
 The T100’s A bass-heavy mix has just enough high-mid and high frequency presence to keep things clear, but if you favor a bright sound, or crisp vocals, these earphones might not do it for you.
On The Wanted “She Walks Like Rihana,” the kick drum loop lacks the crisp, bright punch on its attack that gives the mix more dimension. Instead, the loop here seems to exist mainly in the mids and lows, with a focus on its sustain rather than the attack of the beat. Meanwhile, the sub-bass synth hits that occur every so often beneath the beat are given some serious boosting. Even at moderate levels, the T100A sounds like it’s packing a subwoofer inside. You can still hear the vocals on this track just fine, but they do battle with the massive low-end thump on this track the whole time.

For the price, the JBL T100A is a bargain for bass lovers—you get an inline remote and mic for mobile devices, and you get distortion-free, deep low-end.


PROS
Booming sub-bass response without distortion. Inline three-button remote and

 microphone for mobile devices. Reasonably-priced for its performance level.
CONS

Not for purists seeking flat response or crisp highs. Can be difficult to get a

 secure fit.

  1. They look nice. I like the solid, beautiful black. The sleek design is cool too and means you can wear it with a wide range of outfits without feeling like they don't match well with your look. Thanks for sharing your review.

  2. Howdy fantastic blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount of work?
    I have very little understanding of computer programming but I was hoping to
    start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any ideas
    or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject however I just
    had to ask. Thanks!

  3. I understand this if off topic but I’m looking at starting my own blog and was curious
    what all is needed to obtain setup? I’m assuming using a blog
    like yours would cost you a pretty penny? I’m not too web savvy so I’m
    not 100% certain. Any tips or advice could be greatly appreciated.

    Appreciate it

  4. I had been curious if you ever considered changing the structure
    of your respective blog? Its perfectly written; I love what youve got to say.
    But you could possibly could a bit more in the form of
    content so people could get in touch with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    You may could space it better?

  5. Hi! I was able to have sworn I’ve visited this website before but
    after going through some of the articles I realized it’s unfamiliar with me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I came across it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back often!

  6. I simply want to say I’m beginner to blogging and site-building and absolutely liked your blog. Very likely I’m going to bookmark your site . You definitely have perfect articles. Bless you for revealing your web site.
