When there’s an innovation in sound, there’s a good chance JBL is linked to it. Its predecessor company, Lansing Manufacturing, helped give sound to the first talkie film, The Jazz Singer, delighting audiences but devastating the powerful movie theater organist industry. Since JBL officially established itself in the 1940s, decades of innovation made it a consistent presence in music-recording studios. Its speakers have also been so well-regarded that they’ve been found in places such as the original Woodstock concert and the first presidential inauguration of George W. Bush. Even if you’re not putting on a concert, you can enjoy the fruits of JBL’s labor, which include everything from headphones and sound bars to Bluetooth speakers and sound amplifiers for cars or boats.

These took a little while to get used to but in the end I really liked them.... until (just as another user reported) the left side earpiece stopped working entirely. If you press hard on the outer side of the earpiece, it will engage the sound for about 1/4 second and then go dead again. It's pretty frustrating. I guess I'll have to send them back to JBL for repair
Initially I was very pleased with these headphones. The sound quality is great, the headband is fairly comfortable (although it has yanked out a few hairs on occassion) and the earphones are very soft and comfortable. I can use them for hours at a time at work.
I started to get a bit disappointed when the right headphone started to bend out a bit and made it to where the trackpost which stops the headphones from rotating more the 180 degrees came out of it's groove and it began spinning freely. It was only a minor inconvenience. Now, after owning them for under 2 months the left earpiece has completely stopped working.
I will be contacting JBL for a refund or replacement. This is very disappointing for some headphones at this pricepoint.
Just received mine today. Great packaging...great build quality...and even better sound. The live concert mode had mixed reviews online, i thinks its amazing. Better than having to tweak the eq for each song. Very happy...and for this price, its a no brainer.
Have previously been using Beats headphones and these have a much better sound quality. They are slightly larger than I would like as I use them for working out at the gym, but the sound quality makes up for it. Great price for the quality and comfort ability.
