JBL Wave 100: Specs and features
The JBL Wave 100 comes with Dual Equalizers delivering JBL Pro Sound providing users with the option to choose their sound mode. It features a Dual Connect feature which allows use of one earbud or both.
One of the most unique features of the JBL Wave 100 is its free flowing, easy to access topless design which essentially means that the case does not have a lid to cover the earbuds.
