Crowdfunding is the preferred product launch for many start-ups, but there are times when some of the best-known companies are also involved, such as JBL’s upcoming Reflect Eternal Solar Charging Wireless Headset. Of course, JBL’s move was not about ringing money, but about offering greater concessions to early supporters. The headset is understood to use Powerfoyle technology from Swedish company Exeger to capture and convert energy from natural and artificial light sources.

As a result, the JBL Reflect Eternal headset can be charged at any time throughout the day without plugging in an external power supply. But if you are an acute child, you can also get the addition of wired fast charge technology.
JBL says users get virtually unlimited battery life if they listen to music for 3.5 hours a day and stay outdoors for 2.5 hours.
In sunny conditions, outdoor 1.5 hours can add 68 hours of battery life. If you are outdoors for 2 hours, you can bring 168 hours of battery life.
Given that the headset is a relatively low-power device, this self-sustainment is also relatively small. So JBL decided to target it to potentially interested consumers, and the crowdfunding platform just met that.

In addition to self-charging, JBL Reflect Eternal supports the expected features of modern headsets, such as voice assistants, Bluetooth multipoint connectivity, and environment-aware technology that listens to your surroundings while listening to music.
JBL offers dark red and bright green colors, and interested friends can go to Indiegogo to support it. Currently, 400 early bird specials (54% off) are over, but early supporters can still get 40% of the folds.
The next 600 headphones cost 116 euros / 129 US d.g. and the final retail price is 148 euros / 165 us dollars (about 1100 RMB). If all goes well, it is expected to begin delivery in October next year.
