Bonkers fact of the day: Beats By Dre are now so popular that in America they control 71 percent of the entire headphones market.
One upside of this domination is that it’s encouraged rival brands to be more innovative, launching products that play to different strengths of style, sound and sportiness.
This month JBL debuts two new lines worthy of your attention, the Reflect BT [pictured below] and the E40BT.
The first are Bluetooth sports headphones that are sweatproof, reflective and contain magnets so they clip around your neck when they’re not being used.
The second are on-ear Bluetooth headphones with a sharing function that allows you to stream content to another enabled JBL product, so you can turn your music into a concert for two. Good for the price, they’ve already won a prestigious Red Dot award for product design.
JBL Synchros Reflect BT, £79.99; JBL Synchros E40BT, £79.95. jbl.com
