Finally there are the Synchros E10 in-ear headphones. These offer the convenience of in-ear headphones but, thanks to 8mm drivers and “JBL Signature Sound with PureBass performance”, deliver great sound directly to your ears. The E10 have an unusual design that is not just about style. No, the striking angled ear-tubes are about trying to serve up optimal fit that is not only comfortable but also reduces ambient noise. A one-button inline remote/microphone lets you take calls on the go and an included carrying pouch lets you protect your investment when not in use. Learn more about the $39.95 Synchros E10s here.
