JBL is best known for their audio products and they’re now exploring a sustainable, solar-powered headphone, called the JBL REFLECT Eternal. This device combines Exeger’s revolutionary light converting material into a stylish form-factor with JBL’s legendary Pro Sound technology. Unlike normal solar cells, which require a large surface area and are optimized only for outdoor use, Exeger’s innovative Powerfoyle material is specially engineered to generate power with indoor light as well as indirect sunlight.
This means the REFLECT Eternal is perfect for active lifestyles, since users will be able to continuously charge whether in the office, meeting up with friends, or just outdoors. You’ll have virtually unlimited battery life, along with JBL’s popular noise management technologies – Ambient Aware and TalkThru – that will also be built-in to the headphones. Indiegogo page here.
We are looking forward to hearing from our customers and workshopping this sustainable technology with them in real-time. JBL has been working closely with our partners at Exeger to bring this cutting-edge solar technology into a headphone with JBL’s legendary Pro Sound, and we hope our customers are as excited about it as we are. JBL is pleased to be working with the right partners to contribute where we can to a more sustainable future,” said David Owens, Vice President, Business Development at HARMAN.
