[Update: 18th August]
JBL is teasing a new truly wireless earphone for the last two days now. It is JBL Wave 100 that is a winner of the RedDot 2021 for its design. As per the announcements, the JBL Wave 100 is coming to India very soon. People can reach either JBL’s official website or Flipkart to get it.
The pricing of this audio product will be less than Rs.4,000 (Rs.3,XX9). Though the JBL official Indian website says absolutely nothing and Flipkart mentions a few specs, the Malaysian JBL site reveals all those. However, in the case of pricing, the exact figure for the Indian market is yet to come out.

I already mentioned that the JBL Wave 100 is the RedDot winner 2021. The reason is the charging case doesn’t have any lid. Yes, we are used to seeing a lid in the charging cases, but it’s the exception. Overall getup wise the TWS is lightweight and small in size. In one word, it’s pocket friendly. There are four colour options – Blue, Black, Ivory, and Purple. There is no IP rating.
JBL assigns 8mm audio drivers inside along with the microphones inside for the exact calling and media experience it wants to deliver. Users will get two Sound modes as well. They can switch between as per the mood. Besides, there is Bluetooth 5.0 to take care of the connectivity department and the battery for long calls and musical hours. Here are the Bluetooth profiles this TWS supports – A2DP V1.3 AVRCP V1.6 HFP V1.7.
The JBL Wave 100 buds can deliver you up to 5 hours of playtime, and the uniquely designed charging case can provide three more full charges. In total, there will be 20 hours of entertaining time for you. To refill the battery, there is a Type-C charging port.
Lastly, there is no touch control. You will get buttons to operate the calls and tracks. But you can enjoy hands-free calling as the JBL Wave 100 supports voice assistants.
