JBL Reflect Eternals, the wireless headphones you'll never have to charge
Headphones there are many types and prices, right now they are the most popular wireless. You know that they offer many advantages, the main one is that they give freedom by not relying on cables; But that is also a disadvantage because you run out of battery and goodbye to listen to music, podcasts or anything else.
Well now the manufacturer announces its new JBL Reflect Eternals, headband headphones whose great novelty is to include a solar panel in that same headband. Ok, this is not strictly new, but if we believe what the manufacturer says they could completely change the idea of wireless headphones.
According to JBL, thanks to technology Exeger Powerfoyle, these headphones recharge automatically as soon as they are in full sunlight or artificial light. Of course, with artificial light the performance of the technology is lower and the load does not become equally optimal. But if we believe what the brand says, with being a couple of hours a day outdoors you can forget the task of loading it daily or from time to time.
Sounds good? Yes, too good. That's why it is very strange that if you want to get some you have to go to Indiegogo. You will have to support the project, pay the 144 dollars for them and then, at the end of 2020 you would receive your JBL Reflect Eternals.

For now the project has already achieved the established goal. Moreover, JBL really does not need this type of campaign and everything seems more like an action of marketing in order to generate noise, that nobody can say that they did it before and create some expectation for its launch next year. But despite everything it sounds too pretty.
With a 700 mAh battery, these headphones say they offer about 20-30 hours of playback. And if you go out for an hour and a half or two to the street you can get between 68 and 168 hours of playback. Come on, if you spend more time away from home every day you will have an "unlimited" battery and you can forget about having to charge them with their respective USB cable every X days.

Being a device that is not on the market, we cannot confirm whether or not it meets everything it promises. So we will have to wait and we'll see when they are in the market if they are so revolutionary. Because, in addition, they will also include hands-free, support for Google Assistant and Alexa as well as connection between several devices.
