The JBL Reflect Mini 2 costs $100 and ships this spring. JBL

Google partnered with Bose previous year to launch the Bose QC 35 II, a pair of noise-canceling headphones with Google Assistant integration. Along with that the 3 smart headphones will also have the quick recharge option.

Of the trio, the JBL Xtreme 2 is the most exciting one.

The JBL Everest 710GA, 310GA and 110GA headphones are available in either around-ear, on-ear and in-ear. Having said that, Harman and JBL had plenty to announce at CES, Harman announced its autonomous concept vehicle, new audio platform, and its next-gen ignite platform for Auto Makers. According to JBL, the headphones have anywhere between eight to 25 hours of battery life.

Using Google Assistant users can use voice commands to control their music, listen to notifications, access their agenda and control anything that is connected to their Google Assistant account.

Other new Harman-made products marketed under the JBL banner include $99.95 Reflect Mini 2 and Reflect Contour 2 wireless sport headphones, Endurance sport earphones priced as low as $19.99, a "highly portable" $39.95 JBL GO 2 Bluetooth speaker with a "fully" waterproof design and "next-generation" audio quality, and a large Xtreme 2 portable Bluetooth speaker delivering "superior audio performance" at $299.95. The battery lasts for 8 hours and its Speed Charge battery charges one hour of playback in just 10 minutes of charge. And for buyers on a budget there's the JBL GO 2.

Both Everest models have Bluetooth 4.1, JBL Pro Audio Sound, and integrated Google Assistant. "The JBL Clip 3 showcases a contemporary design that provides the same JBL Signature Sound people love, in the form of a small, compact and portable speaker". The Clip 3 has echo and noise-canceling, meaning this speaker can be used to make decent calls while paired to a phone. The JBL Xtreme 2 supports JBL Connect+ technology and lets multiple speakers play from the same source.
