The battery icon changes based on integer percentages (90%, but no 90.1%). The 300 hour battery claim seems to be accurate so far. Also the power button on the headset that tells the battery only updates every 10%, so it'll only tell 100%, 90%, 80%, and so on
JBL Reflect Flow
We also quite like the $170 RHA TrueConnect, the $180 Jaybird Run XT, and the $190 Jabra Elite Active 65t. You can't go wrong with any of these pairs, and can move the Reflect Flow to the top of the list if you place an emphasis on battery life.
Corsair impressed me last year with its $150 HS75 XB Wireless, an Xbox-exclusive wireless headset that looked and felt more like a high-end set of headphones than a gaming accessory. They also had great sound quality and an easy-to-learn button layout with the right amount of features. It wasn’t necessarily a flaw that they only worked with Xbox consoles, but no one likes to be excluded. The company has now released the HS80 RGB Wireless for the same $150 price with PlayStation compatibility, but these aren’t quite the successor that I was expecting or hoping for
JBL Reflect Flow
The Reflect Flow's mic offers solid intelligibility. Using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone 8, we could understand every word we recorded. There will still be some Bluetooth fuzziness around the edges of the audio, but the mic delivers crisp vocal communication, and doesn't sound far away.
I really wanted to like them, but for $150, I personally don’t think it’s worth it with all the downsides. If it was priced around $100, I might have kept them.
