    Average purchase, there is something to complain about.

    Connected to the phone without problems. I turned on the noise reduction and spontaneous switching on and off began, accompanied by sound and interruption of the music. I wanted to go take it under warranty, as I found similar cases in the reviews. But, as I understand it, I have a problem due to the on / off noise reduction button in the application that was proposed to be installed. By the way, the rating of this application in the play market and the comments on it speak for themselves. No…

    • The sound isn't bad; They sit well on the head; Seems to be of good quality; One of the cheapest with active noise canceling that really works
    • Terrible software; The connector in the headphones themselves is 2.5mm - non-standard; microUSB, not type-C; The headboard is a little soft, I would like softer

    The goods are normal, money is not wasted!

    In general, they have no competitors in this price segment. Yes, there are 350th senshi, but they do not have noise cancellation and wires. There is also Audio equipment, but according to reviews, they cannot turn off noise reduction + constant disconnections. If someone wants to buy them for the street, then there are cons: 1. Noise canceling works, it cuts off some noise (or, better, muffles it). On the street, even with noise reduction, even with music below 40% volume (why below 40 I will…

    • + Interesting design + Do not mix all the tools in one mess + Not strong, but still noise canceling + Nice ear pads + Almost not felt on the head + Good battery life + Can be wired + There is an application with an equalizer (but there are also disadvantages)
    • -2 LEDs that illuminate the right side of the head well in the dark -Micro usb (for some, this is not a minus, but if you have all devices on type-c, then you need to look for a wire for these ears once a week) -Strongly backlash volume control buttons -Application. For some reason, it requires geolocation to use it. For some reason, when you enter the application, the connection with the ears is disconnected for 2-3 seconds -The rest of the shortcomings - this is probably because of my expectations, I will describe them in the comments

    A valuable purchase, some advantages!

    There are no particular complaints about the quality of materials, but a certain compromise is felt - the matte plastic of the bowl will rub over and shine over time, and the glossy JBL inscription is already covered with fingerprints. In terms of sound, it is not bad for an unpretentious listener. With active noise reduction turned off, the sound is flat, but when ANC is turned on, the sound picture improves somewhat - both low frequencies appear and mids are drawn. Those accustomed to deep…

    • - sound; - noise suppression; - quality of materials; - simultaneous bluetooth connection with two devices; - wearing comfort; - carrying case; - integration with google assistant (if you learn how to use it and once again do not touch the touch surface of the left earcup); - control of headphone functions through a proprietary application (charge level; enable / disable ANC, voice assistant; equalizer); - full-size headphones that completely hide the ears; - are friends with the phone; - no pressure on the ears (subjectively).
    • - when ANC is off, the sound is flat; - slight ANC whistle when enabled (noticeable in quiet environments) - passive soundproofing is not enough (compared with Sony, but those are more expensive and heavier); - the headband is soft, the fit to the ears is not tight (but they do not press); - a simple cloth case (competitors have a plastic case); - mobile application for headphones sometimes does not connect with them; - they are not good friends with Skype on the computer (there is no sound from the headphones, then the sound quality drops sharply); - someone will not have enough bass.

    No complaints, I recommend to buy.

    After the Sony xb550ap headphones, I wanted good bluetooth sound, because I got sick of soldering the minijacks (Sonya's plug flew off after half a year of use, which is strange, because I have an even older model and there has been an unkillable wire with a plug for more than 3 years). In general, twisted the high and low frequencies for a pleasant sound. I had a good discount on jbl and snatched this model for 5k. I knew what was waiting for me (judging by the reviews) and calmly reacted to…

    • - I'm visual, so I'm dazzled by their appearance (I took white ones), it's such that I want to walk with them even just like that, without listening to music - active noise isolation. I'm new to this, there's nothing to compare to, but just turning on ANC, without music, I was shocked to find out how much hum I have at work (although I kind of work in a "calm" office as a developer) - they sit very comfortably (I have a small head), I wear them for 4 hours a day on average, my ears got used to it on the third day - great sound with ANC turned on after small equalizer tweaks (I like rock, so I like to twist some values ​​for it). - such an excellent sound with noise reduction that I began to hear new sounds in the songs I used to wear, and somewhere I began to notice how the vocalist was out of tune (even somehow insulting)
    • I agree with some of the comments: - very flat sound with ANC off. Somehow I twisted the values ​​​​in the equalizer to a tolerable sound, but still it's some kind of trash, you have to google why it works like that for them. Even ating the firmware to 6.2.0 did not save. - There is a barely noticeable "hiss" from the ANC when the music is turned off in complete silence, but it does not annoy me - from 20 percent to 0 is discharged in less than an hour with ANC on in noisy public transport - the touch button of the voice assistant is located in such a way that you constantly touch it (and as a result, for 3 seconds you listen not to music, but to game from the "answering machine"). You can disable it through the application, but after the connection is disconnected, this setting is reset, which is unpleasant. - you can not simultaneously charge and listen to music via bluetooth - only through a wire, ANC is also turned off, respectively. In general, this item upset me, because my Aftershokz were able to simultaneously charge and sound via bluetooth, which is very convenient for me.

    Average product, you can do better.

    A couple of months after the purchase were good. Assistant turned off immediately. The most annoying thing is the "noisy" noise reduction. The microphone is bad, the interlocutor does not hear. In the official application, 3 firmware have arrived since the moment of purchase, the current version is 6.2.0. The assembly of the frame is normal, the connections are metal.

    • Fast connection, long working time, fast charging, no pressure, long range.
    • After more than 6 months of use, the pads (ear pads) begin to come off from the inside of the body, I had to glue a drop of glue for a moment. Over time, spontaneous disconnections (iPhone 10, Asus M1, Note). Noise canceling has gotten worse over time. This is very annoying when listening to music at a low volume, or just wearing headphones in silence and without music. For a short time, only the on / off of the headphones helps.

    Headphones compared with 1000 Sony, whose noise reduction is space, but the quality of materials and the visual component is worse, for a lot of money. Marshall monitors are much better in quality but without noise reduction, jbl 650 is the golden mean, you can use them both with a smartphone on the street and as a computer headset if you can properly set up a microphone for them (and it is good enough). As a result, this is a top for my money, I do not regret that I bought them and use them…

    • Decent headphones with good quality materials, the sound, like all jbls, is excellent, but it doesn’t shine with bass or highs, they connect smartly wherever you want, they have a folding design, although they don’t greatly reduce the size of the headphones themselves. The charge is kept for about 3 days by me when used for 4-5 hours of work at the computer, only because of them I still have a micro usb cable to this day.
    • The ear pads are not as soft and pleasant to wear as those of competitors, although noise reduction is present but minimal, recently the ears fell into emergency mode so I had to poke around with a paper clip to reset (this is the first time in almost 2 years of use), as soon as you touch your left ear, it doesn’t matter with a shoulder or something else, the Google assistant is triggered, which interrupts all the sound and it’s impossible to turn it off (this happens a couple of times a day) The headband is not very soft, which sometimes strains, if it is not fixed firmly on the head and you jump, then you will feel not only a blow to the head, but not a pleasant knock is provided.

    The quality exceeds all expectations, I recommend to buy.

    Today I took it, I’m sitting for the second hour, I’m testing it, I turned on the TV to the full and the music in the laptop to the full, I turned on the headphones to a minimum and I didn’t hear any extraneous sounds, neither the TV nor the laptop, and the sound is excellent, in short, so far I’m satisfied, but the charging indicator is still I did not find it, but I would like to see it, in order to know how much charge is left. I talked on the phone using headphones as a headset, everything…

    • Comfortable, fit well to the ears, build quality, noise protection is excellent.
    • Not yet

    The product can be used, I expected a little more.

    Before that, I took TaoTronics TT-BH085 on Amazon (about 50 bucks). Didn't see any noticeable difference. But these cost almost twice as much.

    • - Quality materials and assembly
    • - Uncomfortable sitting. After 30 minutes, I want to remove and insert regular liners. - I didn’t hear that same bewitching sound inherent in portable speakers. Effect "Wow!" No. - As a headset, so-so option. Often the interlocutor does not hear the speech, especially if you talk on the street (even not very noisy). - Unfortunate arrangement of buttons - when I correct the headphones, I constantly press unnecessary buttons (although maybe it’s my hands that don’t grow from there))). For several months, I still didn’t get used to the buttons.

    I like the product, the quality did not disappoint.

    In general, an interesting initial model costs its 5900 with discounts. Has some pros These are my first true wireless earbuds. I chose from an inexpensive segment up to 10 k. The choice was between Sony and Seninheiser, I don’t remember the model. But the cost is the same. 7000. In general, about JBL: I like their design. Made with dignity. Used for the headboard fabric, pleasant to the touch. Not cheap leatherette. This is a plus. In summer, the head will sweat less. They fit well, which…

    A good balance of price/quality, recommend it.

    Good headphones for the price. 10k for them, in my opinion, is a little expensive, but 7-8 with discounts is quite. Pretty stable BT connection. Although there is no aptX support, the sound is still good. I did not notice a difference in sound when connected to the Asus Xonar Essence STX with a wired connection and when connected wirelessly. There is a slight noise in the background when active noise reduction is turned on. When activated, the sound becomes better, more distinct and soft…

    • Stable Bluetooth connection (BT v. 4.2) Good ergonomics: long-term wear does not cause inconvenience Standard Micro-USB charging port Well-functioning noise canceling Wired connection via standard 3.5mm jack (without microphone) Support google assistant by touching the sensor of the left earphone Long work on one charge
    • Lack of aptX support Many people have frequent problems with the microphone in popular dialers (skype, viber, whats app) (see . 07/23/2022)

    The product disappointed, does not meet the promises.

    Before that, I had Chinese Takstars, they cost a couple of times cheaper, the sound quality is not inferior, and of course there is no such disgrace. I decided to upgrade, I think, "JBL is a good brand." As a result, > 10,000. for quality below Chinese.

    • They fit snugly, detachable cord (i. E. there is an "old-fashioned" mode of operation without Bluetooth, without batteries, etc.), the sound is average, at the level of its price.
    • A month later, the left ear cushion was glued (attached a photo), first on one side. I sealed it, it looks ugly (you can see it in the photo), but at least it keeps. A month later, the same story, the same ear pads, only on the other side. Is my left ear sharp? A few more words about usability: on the left ear there is a "smart button" for calling Google Assistant. Right out of the box, it works like this: you lightly touch the outside of the monitor, _all sound_ (!) falls silent for a couple of seconds, and you are told "The Google Assistant is not connected". It is impossible to use this goodness: for example, if you fix the earpiece on a call and accidentally press the button, you miss 2-3 seconds of speech. Fortunately, this thing is disabled from the application (but there is no mention of this in the instructions).

    The product can be used, I expected a little more.

    Expected better performance. A year and a half is certainly not the worst result in terms of survivability, but for such a price it is definitely not the quality that you expect. I recommend looking in the direction of analogues.

    • Not bad sound compared to regular headphones. Noise canceling works well. Comfortable, relatively light, not annoying if you need to sit in headphones for a couple of hours.
    • After a couple of months of use, something began to dangle in the right earpiece when the head was tilted. After a year and a half, with a difference of a couple of weeks, the glued seam on both ear pads broke, I broke the foam rubber, I had to glue it myself, because the service center wafered requests for repair costs. When connected via BT, there is background noise, but this is usually a problem with all BT headphones, because. BT is not originally sharpened for sound transmission. I don’t see such a problem on standard Dect headphones

    A useless product, it's not worth the money.

    They themselves switch the track back in a chaotic manner They themselves reduce the sound (checked with both the phone and the laptop) Turn noise cancellation on and off I read how many stocks behind them, they will probably ask for money back. I really liked the noise in the store - putting on my ears turned off, I was in silence, it’s not so with mine, but still quiet, it’s cool to wash the dishes - you don’t hear anything) At maximum volume, they begin to wheeze, with the ears removed, they

    • Appearance Compact (look small on the head) noise reduction Shumka (everything is known in comparison)
    • Sound. Thought they would warm up. We didn’t have time, they started to fail out of the box All the same, they put pressure on the ears, but I think over time they would "take root" Noise canceling in the store impressed, out of the box, as if other ears got VERY inconvenient buttons Google assistant - I don't understand why

    Revainrating 2 out of 5

    Unsatisfactory quality, I wont buy it anymore.

    7000 is too much for headphones for a year. I do not recommend. Before that, I bought a JBL 500, and there they started to fail after 9 months of use, the focus shifted strongly towards the right speaker. I thought it was an accident, and decided to give the company a second chance - the sound suited me - but my next headphones will definitely not be JBL.

    • They worked super, the sound quality is excellent (the merit of Harman Cardon).
    • A month after the end of the warranty (13 months after purchase), the leather backing on the right speaker came off, two months after the warranty they began to actively fail - they turned on spontaneously, and when they tried to turn it off, they turned off the noise reduction 🤷‍♂️ They stopped bugging only after I connected them a short time to recharge.

    A good product, I advise you to try it.

    Thus, we can state that the headphones are not a full-fledged telephone headset, at least of the declared level. Other than that, they are a pleasure to use. The function of pairing with multiple devices is very convenient. The active noise cancellation function works well, coupled with developed ear cushions. And the folding system allows you to fit them in a secluded place.

    • Good quality overall, a pleasure to use. They sound like headphones of this level should sound, with a small caveat*.
    • High sensitivity (microphone) and a primitive scheme of action, without noise suppression, constantly causes dissatisfaction among interlocutors. *- the caveat lies in the occasional low-frequency distortion, probably due to the action of the ANC system.

    A practical product, nothing to complain about.

    In general, a good impression, both at home and on trips. Pros: Good noise isolation, decent sound for this price, noise reduction also works well (I use it mainly in transport), then my head does not hurt, like from cheap headphones. The signal is caught far enough, you can walk throughout the apartment (3 rooms). Works well as a headset, both for the phone and for the computer. Supports sound from two sources simultaneously.

    I am not disappointed, the quality is satisfying.

    I bought headphones for 6000. If you take headphones with noise reduction, then it’s probably worth taking these. The price is not that big. Some pros: Great sound. Noise reduction. The appearance of the headphones. For six months of use, the ears look like new. Got cons: The microphone in these headphones is terrible. You can’t listen to the classics in these headphones. The sound is too glassy. Sometimes there are breaks with the connected device.

    I use it regularly in the office, it's convenient to talk on Skype - the external voices of colleagues do not interfere, and they also do not get into the microphone. Has some pros: In general, everything is not as bad as it seemed at first, you can use them, though do not expect such noise reduction and sound quality as in more expensive ones. Its cons: The sound is not bad, if you do not make it too loud, loud music does not pull

    Good bluetooth headphones, but for the bass to manifest, you need to set the Bass mode in the application and turn on the noise reduction Has some pros: Good active noise reduction system, low price among competitors of products of this type Cons: Bass without noise reduction turned on at medium volume is muted

    Impressions from the purchase are good, buy.

    For music lovers, I say that the lower frequencies are slightly overestimated, but it gets better with noise reduction. I alsorun a techno blog on Zen , where I make techno ratings and much more.
