JBL has been a leader for a long time in the development of high-quality headphones and earbuds with superior sound. JBL headphones or earbuds are a wonderful choice for you whether you prefer streaming the latest shows, gaming, or listening to music at home or on the go. We’ll teach you how to pair JBL earbuds with your smartphone or PC in this article.
JBL is most known for its affordable and cheerful Bluetooth speakers, but the firm also makes great headphones and earbuds. They’re known for their upbeat, lively music with a lot of bass and colorful graphics. We’ve compiled a list of the best models for you to peruse below.
Active noise cancellation, 11mm dynamic drivers, and a bass-forward sound are all features of the JBL Live Pro+ TWS earbuds. These earbuds offer a decent fit, are well-made, and are water-resistant to IPX4 standards. With 7 hours on the earbuds and another 21 hours on the charging case, you get a total of 28 hours of listening time. The earbuds have six microphones that work together for ANC and calls.
The JBL Live 300TWS earbuds contain Ambient Aware and TalkThru technology and are compact in size. With Ambient Aware, you can go from absolute music immersion to attention to your surroundings, and with TalkThru, you can communicate with your pals without removing your headphones. The battery life of the JBL LIVE 300TWS earphones is up to 6 hours on a single charge. Put them in the charging case for a total of 14 hours of listening time (maximum). In just 10 minutes, you can get a one-hour boost.
The JBL Tune 225TWS earphone is ideal for sports and fitness. They’re light and comfortable to wear. While they only filter a little amount of ambient noise, they may be handy if you’re out and about and want to stay aware of your surroundings. Unfortunately, they don’t have built-in volume controls, so you’ll have to make this adjustment with your phone.
The JBL Tune 115TWS wireless earbuds have a unique design, are lightweight, have a powerful sound with booming bass, and allow you to use your favorite virtual assistant hands-free. The Tune 115 TWS wireless earbuds lack a sophisticated microphone setup and aren’t compatible with JBL’s mobile app, which is crucial to note. The buds’ maximum battery life of 6 hours isn’t very impressive, but it’s more than sufficient for the price. Their USB-C charging case has a capacity of more than two full charges.
5. JBL Tune 230NC and Tune 130NC
These new truly wireless earphones, according to JBL, outperform the JBL Tune 125 TWS and JBL Tune 225 TWS. The Tune 230NC retains the appealing form factor with upgraded silicone tips and offers greater bass performance, but the Tune 130NC adds Active Noise Cancellation to a more traditional earphone design.
Both earbuds have four microphones, Bluetooth 5.2 compatibility, Google Smart Ambient, Fast Pair, Dual Connect + Sync, Google Assistant, and Alexa access, and are sweat and water-resistant to IPX4 standards.
