JBL C115 TWS Headphones Review | The best wireless headphones under Rs. 5000 ?
Yesterday, JBL launched its latest mid-range JBL C115 True Wireless Earbuds in India. This new version of JBL True Wireless earbuds is offered at an affordable price of Rs. 4999. For the price, it’s hard to ridicule such a product. JBL is a very big name in audio products and is very popular for its excellent sound quality. So I really want to try. If you are wondering whether or not you should buy these earbuds, here is my review of the JBL C115 TWS earbuds after using them for the past three days.
Contents of box
- The JBL headphones are black (if you don’t like black, there are a few additional options – black and red, white and mint white).
- User Manual
- Small/large silicone earbuds (medium size attaches to earphones).
- Small C-type USB cable.
Design, construction and comfort
First of all, I am very pleased with the design and construction of these JBL earphones, the final look is neater in my opinion. There are not many unnecessary design elements on the case, a fairly simple and clean look that ultimately gives a sense of premium and professionalism.
The case has been one of the strengths of the package from the start. I love the oval shape of the round body and the matte finish. The construction quality is also good, so thanks to JBL for using high quality plastic. It is also very compact and light (only 40 g), so you can carry it in your jeans pocket every day without worry.
Opening the case is not as satisfying as I had hoped, it does not have the tactile feel that some other helmet cases have when the lid is open. But I’m not a killjoy at all. But the tycoon in the hat is strong enough, and you will feel it.
I also really like that the magnet in the charging case is so strong, and that the earphones fit with a simple click – something most low-priced earphones don’t do, and that’s a bit lame. You have a USB C port on the back and three small LEDs: for charging and battery status.
Enough about the housing, let’s move on to the headphones. In this price range, there is nothing better than the JBL C115 helmet – my short and strong opinion. The best part is that the earphones are small, not too bulky, perfect and fit well on the ear. It is also very well constructed, using high quality plastic, and while the matte finished body goes very well with style and comfort.
There is also a hardware button on each earphone with the JBL logo on top. At first, I wondered why JBL didn’t include touch controls in this price range. But after the first try, my opinion changed completely. The button is very smooth and doesn’t require any extra force to press it, so I appreciate the control of the button instead of pressing it.
They are also very comfortable and I have been able to use them for hours without pain or discomfort. Yes, if you have small ears, you’ll need a little more time to adjust comfortably, but you’ll definitely get decent comfort.
Overall, I wouldn’t call the JBL C115 outstanding when it comes to comfort and fit, but they are certainly good when it comes to comfort and above average when it comes to fit.
The JBL C115 gives you access to many features on your phone, including support for Google Assistant or Siri. You can control music and incoming calls with the headset button. You will find all the information on how to use it in the enclosed manual, so you won’t waste any time with it.
I do want to point out that you can’t control the volume through the headphones, but that doesn’t really matter since many TWS headphones don’t currently offer volume control. I would like to see JBL develop a companion application in the near future that allows us to do the same. It also allows them to take into account user feedback and improve sound quality via firmware updates.
The JBL TWS C115 supports Bluetooth 5.0, so you can connect it to any Android device and iOS. It quickly connects to your phone when you take it out of the case and disconnects automatically when you put it back in the case. As with other truly wireless headphones, you don’t need to turn on the headphones or repeat the connection process each time. Just take the headphones out of the box and boom! Your headset automatically reconnects to your device.
You can also use the headset in mono mode by pairing only one headset with the device to be connected. In this range, the C115 provides a decent communication range (about 8 m) and is able to maintain sound quality even over longer distances.
Speaking of the best part of the JBL C115, the sound quality was really good. The headphones offer a balanced and natural sound (comparable to the sound quality of JBL Signature), with a rich and full sound that doesn’t completely drown out either the highs or the lows. The sound of the voices is very clear, even at maximum volume.
I’ve tested almost all the best-selling TWS headphones under Rs 5000, so it’s safe to say that the JBL C115 has one of the most balanced audio outputs in this price range, at least at the moment. He does his best to make sure that the ups, averages and downs of all the planes remain well balanced and not overwhelming.
If, like most independent users, you’re a fan of the high-frequency node, these headphones will unfortunately leave you a little disappointed. Yes, the lows are there, but at the right level, or you could say at the average level, which is actually a good thing because it prevents the other nodes from being overloaded. But there are two sides to every piece, so bass lovers with the other opti… ! (Sorry JBL).
According to JBL, each earphone has its own 55 mAh battery and the charging box comes with a 410 mAh battery that allows the earphones to be charged multiple times.
With use, I got about 3-4 hours of continuous music playback at 80% volume. It’s really good, and that’s the average time we get with most helmets. The case keeps the headphones charged 3-4 times for a total listening time of about 20 hours, which is pretty good.
As for charging, the case itself can be charged via a USB C-type cable (included). Full charge from 0% takes about 2 hours, while the headphones themselves can be charged in an hour and a half. Overall, I have no complaints about the battery life.
JBL C115 Overview: Should I buy these headphones?
All in all, the JBL C115 is probably one of the best wireless headphones you can buy in the price segment under 5000 rupees if you want natural and balanced sound quality. Excellent sound quality combined with a rich and balanced sound track, a flawless pairing process and a robust charging case. – It’s definitely worth buying. However, if high frequencies are your priority, you should consider other options in this price range.
