Accessories & Packaging
The JBL EVEREST 100 unboxing results in 3x earphone tips, 3x secure fit eartips, 1 micro USB charging cable. Everything comes packed in a very nice and protective packaging with a style similar to the JBL REFLECT MINI BT and JBL REFLECT AWARE.
Bass & Sub Bass
The JBL EVEREST 100 bass provides good mid-bass punch and not much sub-bass. Their looser and not so sealing fit does not help to their sub-bass response. Overall they do not feel anemic or thin at all but it is fair to be aware of the lack of sub-bass if this is what you were expecting. Apart from that, their bass gives warmth and some punch.
Applying an EQ, mid-bass becomes much punchier and sub-bass gets stronger reaching a much more improved depth.

Mids & Vocals
The JBL EVEREST 100 mids have clear enough lower vocals but can sound somewhat distant, mid-bass bleed is almost absent and not invasive. Higher mids are crisp but not forward nor overdone; usually there are no harsh peaks.
With an EQ there is a groundbreaking change, with highly crispier upper mids and much more alive lower vocals.
Highs & Treble
The JBL EVEREST 100 highs are sufficiently bright and resolve a good amount of detail (for normal listening sessions). Piercing highs are not present and sibilance is merely perceivable when extreme peaks arise.
An EQ makes their highs much more detailed and brighter with no piercing highs but stronger sibilance.
JBL EVEREST 100
The sound that leaks out of the JBL EVEREST 100 is very low and will not be hearable by nearby people – even less while doing sport activities.

Noise isolation is lower than many average earphones, this is a feature that is very appreciated when intended to be used while running, cycling or any activity that requires some sort of awareness of your surroundings.
For all our reviews we have standardized the “Sound Isolation” scores, where a higher score represents a stronger isolation and a lower score a lower isolation. Said so, their lower than average score below corresponds to their less isolating level.

The housing’s super light weight, rounded corners and eartips with wings makes the JBL EVEREST 100 an almost perfect companion to be worn for hours with no pain or discomfort. Their fit is also very secure and snug thanks to the rubberized earwings.

Response to Equalization
The response to EQ of the JBL EVEREST 100 was very efficient with much punchier and deeper bass, substantially clearer vocals and radically brighter and more detailed highs.
