JBL Everest 100 Unboxing

JBL is classic, very classic even. A vertical rectangular box that opens like a book, revealing the headphones surrounded by their protective foam. A little original packaging, but which is often part of the packaging of headphones. Behind the earphones, two sets of earplugs and earcups that you can change for better comfort, adapted to your ears. Also note the presence of a micro-USB cable which has a small feature: the USB port works in both directions. It's silly, but you can no longer make a mistake and it changes your life!

Design JBL Everest 100

During the presentation at IFA, JBL had bet on the discretion of the headphones. However, once in hand, it must be recognized that this is not really the case. They are already quite heavy and above all rather large. So we are far from saying that it is imposing to the point of being embarrassing. It is simply possible to make it smaller. For the rest, the general aspect is again very classic. Two colors on the program, black and white.

Side buttons, there are not many, but sufficient for the essential functions namely Play / pause, play a song, go back, increase / decrease the sound. There's also a built-in microphone for making calls, which is a pretty disappointing feature.

Comfort JBL Everest 100

Let’s dwell on a very important characteristic when choosing headphones: comfort. So the advantage is that there are three sizes that will fit your ears. If you're not a fan of in-ear headphones, go your way, even more if you can't stand having your ears "full". From our experience, the headphones are rather pleasant to wear even if we regret that the part that touches the ear lacks a bit of softness. You end up with a feeling of having a device that is a little stiff in the ear which can be annoying in the long run. However, no pain after several hours, but it depends on the people. In summary, the comfort is quite good, but could have been softer. As always, we recommend that you try on the helmets before buying them if possible.

JBL Everest 100 Audio Quality

Good listeners

On the audio side, these headphones are on par with what you find for that price on the market. A good sound that is not without some small faults. At low volume, a slight muffled effect in terms of treble and bass overall a bit too present. This is often the fault with JBL products. Nevertheless bass lovers will find their account largely. We would have liked that, like the other models in the series, the JBL application be compatible in order to modify the sound settings. Unfortunately, this is not possible.

Quick point on Bluetooth stability which is very good. You can easily go up to 10 meters from your smartphone or computer before feeling a few music jumps. A good very good point which allows not to be forced to keep the smartphone in the hand, unfortunately a fairly recurring problem…

Much less in communication

Where the shoe pinches, is that these JBL Everest 100 do not seem to be used as a hands-free kit. In our tests over several series of calls, not only was the voice passing through the headphones of poor quality, but we also heard rather poorly. Suspecting a network problem, we tried again without the paired headphones and the result was very good. The problem therefore comes from wireless headphones. Pity !

JBL Everest 100 autonomy

The brand announces about 8 hours of autonomy, a figure that is respected. You can therefore walk around with the headphones on your ears for a little while before needing to recharge them. 8 hours is not bad for Bluetooth headphones. At Beats, for example, they fall flat after 6 hours (for twice as much). Jabra, for its part, rarely exceeds 5 hours of autonomy (with, in its defense, a sports data recovery system).

Conclusion JBL Everest 100

The advantages of the JBL Xtreme

> Autonomy
> Good Bluetooth range
> Powerful bass…

Cons of the JBL Xtreme

> … Maybe a little too much
> Perfectible comfort
> Bad in hands-free kit

The JBL Everest 100 does not revolutionize the world of headphones or offer a transcendent experience for its price. They're just good and about the average you can find for 99 euros. The strong point of this device is above all the autonomy, very convincing. Too bad the comfort and the microphone has not been more worked.
