JBL T110 – Review

ūüé߬†We finished reviewing the¬†JBL T110 earphones. The JBL T110 have a price tag similar to many budget chinese earphones but you will be getting an earphone backed up by the giant brand that belongs to Harman, both brands (JBL and Harman) are among the biggest regarding sound equipment, they have been in the market for a long time and have manufactured a tremendous amount of earphones, headphones and speakers.

Although the JBL T110 are part of the budget line, JBL has not cheaped out on quality materials and design. The housing of the T110 is very small and made of plastic but feels solid and well finished, the cable is flat tangle-free and robust with an inline microphone and 1 button control, the stereo plug has a less often 45¬į degree.

The size is similar to the Sennheiser CX200, JBL C100SI, Somic MH403, sort of near to some microdriver earphones such as the Remax RM-565i, UiiSii Hi-705, KZ HDS3 and way smaller than some standard sized earphones such as the Xiaomi Mi Quantie Pro Hybrid, Xiaomi Mi Pro HD, Plextone X41M, KZ EDR2, Elephone E1 or the Songful F2.

A
Accessories & Packaging

The T110 come packed in a nicely designed box (very JBL style), inside there are a 3 extra eartips that look pretty attractive with a white translucent design with orange on the inside.

B
Bass/Sub Bass

The JBL T110 have a very fun bass response, mid-bass is punchy and energetic and even sub-bass has pretty good depth. The JBL are able to warm up sound and provide enough energy to music without making the whole sound muddy or too congested.

An EQ can be used to feed the bass of the JBL T110, we don’t think they need it but it is up to your preferences, as a result bass gets noticeably stronger but everything else gets recessed (mids and vocals, mostly)

The JBL are able to warm up sound and provide enough energy to music without making the whole sound muddy or too congested.

We put the JBL T110 under our extreme bass test and they were able to handle 45% of the maximum power of a Fiio E12 portable amplifier (amplifier set to high gain, bass boost on and using a custom basshead equalizer). The test resulted in a slight basshead impact and rumble, pretty respectable for such a budget and small iem, you can expect a basshead performance way above the KZ ATE, Xiaomi Mi Pro HD and the Remax RM-565i but below the smaller brother the JBL C100SI and way below some heavyweights as the Sony MDR-XB50AP, Pioneer SE-CX8, Pioneer SE-CX9, Vots QT100, Sony MDR-EX7550/800ST, Plextone X41M or Senfer 4in1.

M
Mids/Vocals

Mids are recessed but not excessively. Mostly you will feel the recession on lower mids and lower vocals but they do not sound too muddy. Harshness is not an issue with the JBL T110.

An eq will help to clear up vocals a bit but with slight boxiness.

H
Highs/Treble

The highs of the JBL T110 have some presence but lack definition and detail, they are not too piercing and mostly there are no traces of strong sibilance but there is some.

…¬†the overall sound is pretty V-shaped

Although the T110 may not have the most defined highs they are pretty bright, combined with the bassy performance and laid back mids it can be said that the overall sound is V-shaped.

Equalizing will brighten up highs, detail and definition will get better but the sibiliance and piercing highs presence will get enhanced as well.

Sound Leak

The sound that leaks out of these earphones is higher than average, sound will be heard by people nearby even on mediumly noisy places.

SI
Sound Isolation

Despite the small housing they are able to fairly isolate from surrounding noises. They will not win a prize for this but combined with the high volume output that they are able to provide you will isolate from disturbing noises pretty effectively

C
Comfort

The JBL T110 reminded us a bit to the Sennheiser CX200 but without the odd back part of the housing (see our review of the Sennheiser CX200 to see what we mean). The are small, light, comfortable and very robust for the selling price.

Fit is tight enough to not fall by its own and not too tight to make you struggle to fit it in or out.

EQ
Response to Equalization

The response to equalization of the JBL is fair, bass can be enhanced but will result in an overall recessed/muddy sound, lower mids and lower vocals can be cleared up a bit but will start to sound kind of boxy. Highs gain detail and definition but the piercing and sibilant highs will start to get more noticeable and could be a problem.
