Who is it for and should you buy it?

Finding affordable headphones with better sound and build quality in the market is too hard. In the latest world, these two should be top-level, unluckily almost all budget headphones don’t allow both things in a classic way.

This headset is above-average for sports. It’s lightweight, breathable, and easily fit enough for jogging. It has a wireless design that’s why they have less chance to fall down because the audio cable easily stuck on something.

It’s a solid choice for office use. The JBL E45BT offers a long battery life and solid sound with continuous listening for hours but doesn’t reduce much noise. You can listen to the gossip of surrounding office colleagues, and your headset leaks little sound at high volume, so your sound can disturb peoples around you.


The JBL E45BT offers an on-ear fit that is a bit comfortable but not for long listening hours. The small ear cups are padded well but it coerces on the top of your ear which integrate with the quite tight fit.

Design & Build

The design of the JBL E45BT almost looks like other headphones in the E-Series lineup. It gives a clear “JBL” look including the JBL logo on each ear cup. Moreover, the rounded corners have the ability to easily fold up and swivel. 

The JBL E45BT has a solid build quality that almost the same as the over-ear E555BT, and it has a more luxurious design than the T450BT. The headband is flexible and provides a thin metal frame for boosting.

The ear cups are nicely heavy, and this sturdy headphone has the ability to cover when accidentally drops. 

Unluckily, the plastic build quality looks cheap, which is too observable on the right ear cup buttons.


It has a stable fit, and it provides a tight enough fit for running. During the testing procedure, It falls over mostly as compared to the over-ear variant but it’s stable enough for casual activities.

It better enough choice for sports, but couldn’t be the great headphone for your intense workout, where you move your body too much.


It is fairly portable and folds into a more dense format. It’s not easy to take around on your person but it can easily fit or fold into a backpack or handbag.


It can connect wirelessly through Bluetooth and pair at the same time with multiple devices. Unluckily, it doesn’t have NFC support, but on the other hand, it’s too easy to pair due to its dedicated Bluetooth pair button.

Noise Cancelation

The isolation is below average. It doesn’t have active noise canceling and isolate mildly. Due to this, it doesn’t isolate in the bass range almost, which means you can hear noises low rumbling sounds of an airplane or bus engine. Considering mid-range, it reduces 10dB noises, which is nice.

Considering treble range, where sharp sounds like S and Ts sit, it blocks noise almost 27dB, which is more than average. For better noise isolation while commuting, you can check the latest E65BTNC.

Sound Quality 

Theoretically, on-ear headphones don’t cover the ears as compactly as in-ear and over-ear headphones, but the external noise enervation is quite sufficient. For studio and explicit audiophile applications.

The E45BT isn’t a great choice of headphones, but for mobile, laptop and other sound resources use, it provides a mini-jack to having more fun anywhere with any sound source. 

Including 40 mm drivers, this headphone gives a balanced, uncontrolled sound that isn’t too involved in the bass or sharp. At the midpoint, the headset as the wired E35 provides good warmth and vocal intelligibility. Considering stereo panorama, it’s wide and detailed.  

The volume supplies are enough but don’t suitable for the club. In the way of low bass, super high range, and depth of extent, there are clear downwards, which eventually offer down to price.

Microphone Quality

The joined microphone offers average performance. The LFE (low-frequency extension) of 281Hz shows that the speech recorded/transmitted by this mic will sound rather dull.

The HFE of 3.5KHz shows that recorded speech will lack in detail and existence. Although, speech is better enough in a silent environment.

Battery Life

It has a solid battery life and good charge time. It stands 26 hours a bit more longer than E55BT at 19 hours, but unluckily, it doesn’t support an auto-off timer like the Everest Elite 700.

On the other hand, it can be used mild while on charging and when batter dies.


In $100, JBL’s E45BT provide a strong sound signature with raise lows and crisp, clear highs.  Considering this price range, the headphone looks a solid choice, but it’s not very special one. If you want the JBL sound signature in an over-ear design, so the JBL’s E55BT headphone is a good choice.


  • Too comfortable on-ear fit.
  • More than average sound quality.
  • Superb wireless range and battery life.


  • Below-average noise isolation.
  • Plasticky build quality.


Finally, in this price range, the JBL E45BT offers a strong sound signature with boosted lows, crisp and clear highs. So, this is going to be a solid choice for you and make you feel enjoyable for a long period of time.
