Comfortable and sounds great!July 14, 2017
I have to say these JBL wireless headphones are one of my favorites I have had the pleasure to wear and listen to! Wired or wireless they sound fantastic. Out of the box pairing to my phone was quick, easy, and very fast! These headphones are rich and full sounding almost as good as my Bose headphones. While they are not noise canceling, being they are over the ear they do a great job at blocking the noise of the outside world. They are built quite well! Solid, comfortable, and I think beautiful. The padding around the ear and on the top of the headband is soft and feels great. The included storage case is fantastic and keeps the headphones safe while in transit not in use. I will say the call quality is acceptable, I feel most headphones I use are just ok in that area. The callers said I sounded a bit too quiet, but clear. Overall I enjoy these JBL headphones and would get them again if given the opportunity. Rich full sound, comfortable to wear, and look beautiful! I quite like these!

Great looking, sounding, and comfortable cans.July 19, 2017
To start the packaging and protection on this was done well. The inner box that slides out was a little hard to get out, but when when it does its a nice presentation of the headphones's case. In the box is the headphones, a nice carrying case, the USB and 3.5mm cables, and some papers. The case itself is very nice and has a diagram/ picture of how the headphones fold up if you happen to forget which is a nice touch. The case also has a separate area to hold the cables, or any other small accessory you might want to carry. The headphones themselves look awesome. They are a very nice silver, with nice and soft over the ear design that is very comfortable. And as mentioned before they fold up easily to fit into the included case. After unboxing it I connected the headphones to charge. The initial charge took about 3 hours to fully charge, although this might have taken this long because I didnt have it connected to a very strong USB port. And they are rated at 25 hours. So there should be plenty of battery to get through a day. When powering it on you get an audible voice telling you its powered on, and giving you the current connection status. The first pairing to my Samsung Galaxy S8+ was simple. All I had to do was look for the headphones in my Bluetooth settings, and with one click I was paired. The sound is excellent. Very clear, with just the right amount of bass and no distortion. I then tested them out on my TV and again I was easily able to pair them to my Samsung TV. The music from the headphones sounded good, but regular TV audio sounded a bit tinny. Although they arent really designed for that. I then tested the functionality and sound when connected via the included 3.5mm cable. I was able to control the play and pause via the inline connectors button, as well as connect to Google assistant with a long press. The music sounded pretty good this was as well, although I preferred the sound when connected via Bluetooth. The fit and comfort of these is also very good. I was blessed with lets just say a large head, so some headphones can feel tight, or not fit at all even when adjusted to max. But these fit fine, and are very comfortable with the nice plush ear foams. Overall I can say this is a very nice set of headphones. Great sound, simple connectivity, and very comfortable. Highly recommended. Great job JBL.

Familiar JBL Sound in a Comfortable HeadphoneJuly 13, 2017
I grew up around Hi-Fi enthusiasts and musicians so I’m very acquainted with the JBL name. Which brings me right to the heart of the matter. The sound of the JBL Everest 710 is so reminiscent of the JBL classic speakers such as the 100s. It’s a sound favored by rock musicians and jazz artists, from studio to home. Cueing up Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s “Anything Goes” brings out an energized jazz orchestra, rich with drums, horns and those easily recognized, accurately rendered voices. The JBL 710 delivers clearly defined voices and more than sufficient bass. Female vocalist LP, especially from her video cover of “Halo”, is nicely presented and the talented musicians accompanying her are easy to visualize across the sound stage. The small audience at her live recording set can’t help but whoop to her vocal stretches, and they are placed properly. The voice of LP is natural, and forceful, with the bass player dominating the mix as he is supposed to in the right places. Nice. On John Legend’s “Save Room”, the driving bass doesn’t hide the entrance of the lead guitar, and Legend’s voice is warm and natural. On songs with John’s piano, it sounds like it’s right there in the room, with great resonance. Fun headphones. And, they are comfortable and light despite being loaded with l-o-n-g battery life (JBL says 25 hours, an advanced Bluetooth feature set, an available direct cable connect and phone control on the headphone cup. Plugging in the cable in lieu of Bluetooth resulted in little difference in sound quality. A lot going on here. Bluetooth connection to my phone and my laptop was easy and reliable. I got 30ft from my source before the BT signal broke up. Sound quality using the phone for calls was at least as good as directly from my phone (and maybe better). JBL adds another feature that should be useful: ShareMe extends your music to ANY other headphone. The headphone talks you through the process when you hit the share button. Seriously great feature which I got to work with my other wireless phone without drama. No Y adapter needed . . yay. These headphones click open into operating position or fold flat to fit into a nice case. Complaints: The instructions require a serious magnifying glass and good lighting. Diagrams could be labeled better. The headphone control layout is busy. Once you establish tactile guideposts and learn the purposes and placement of the 6 buttons, you’ll stop groaning. I wouldn’t mind if the verbal guidance was repeated. I’m often pulling the headphone away from my ears to see what I’m doing and I get the tail end of the guidance. Arrrgh. Most of these issues are left behind at the hump of the learning curve. I’m turning up Tom Odell popular songs, so I’m happily distracted. Summary. I like them, and can imagine using them for extended periods. Unlike earbuds, placement is not as critical with over-the-ear headphones . . . most everyone can easily achieve a comfortable and effective fit. Don’t underestimate the importance of fit. It would be easy to take them on a trip even though they aren’t noise cancelling. The fit does a nice job of rejecting outside noise but those JBL750NRs would surely be better at a modest premium, if reducing outside noise is the primary need. These headphones will appeal to a lot of people.

Tight Bass, Good features, Mediocre DesignJuly 14, 2017
I've always been intrigued by JBL's Everest series of wireless headphones, but this is my first time actually getting to spend some extended time with a pair. I own several sets of high-end headphones as well as a couple DACs and headphone amplifiers, but when I'm on the go or at the office, I definitely like the convenience of wireless so I can stand up and stretch without having to interrupt my music. BUILD QUALITY: The unboxing experience is pretty minimalistic. Inside the box is the included case with the headphones and accessories inside. The included is of great quality, even rivaling the cases of competitors. Off to a great start! Unzip the case, and lying in the flap pocket is a 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable for you to use the headphones wired, as well as a MicroUSB cable to charge the unit. The headphones fold such that the earcups are rotated inward and are lying flat in the case. This seems to be very common, nowadays, as this is the third wireless bluetooth headphone to have this exact same mechanism. Glad they didn't change a design that's not broken! Pulling the headphones out of the case, the plastic build immediately feels cheaper than the plastic I am accustomed to on the other Bluetooth headphones I own. I've put on substantially cheaper knock-off brand Bluetooth headphones that used a better plastic build compared to the Everest 710. As I tap on certain areas of the plastic, I can hear that the build is fairly hollow, and I'm certain that's not all for acoustic reasons. This is a bit of a letdown for a headphone at this price. I'd expect more from JBL. COMFORT: Here's a good note. The ear pads and padding on the headband are very plush and comfortable. Using the Everest 710 at the office and at home for extensive listening sessions, I did not start to feel fatigue any sooner than I would have with my other Bluetooth headphones (which is impressive, because my other headphones are incredibly comfortable). The earcups are large enough to fit my ears without causing pressure, and the padding on the headband was ample enough to prevent fatigue at the apex of my head—which has been an issue with other headphones I've owned. Weight-wise, it's pretty light due to the plastic build being more hollow in comparison to other headphones, but they're certainly not the lightest ones I own. PAIRING: The pairing process is pretty simple. Press and hold the dedicated pairing button on the unit, then select the Everest 710 from your Bluetooth device. From my testing, the Everest 710 can remember 2 devices and switch between them without having to restart the pairing process. When you start playing audio on one device, the other will be paused until you resume playback on that device. However, you cannot play audio from two devices simultaneously, which is largely unheard of, anyway. SOUND: Okay, so how do they sound? Listening to various genres of music, they lean on the bassier side, as I expected. Treble is recessed so that you won't experience harsh vocal sibilance, but vocal clarity is good, making this headphone great for rap, hip-hop, edm, etc. Of these genres, I primarily listen to Rap and EDM. This is really where these headphones shine. On the other spectrum, rock/metal/prog genres area also enjoyable when the mix is balanced, but they will still have a bit more bass emphasis and less sparkle in the highs (which isn't necessarily bad). However, instrumental music may not be as enjoyable of an experience because instrumental productions tend to allow more emphasis in the bass, which could really take away from the clarity, shimmer and sparkle of other instruments. However, if you're listening to instrumental music where the bass is a prominent instrument, then this could work out in your favor. While I haven't performed any extensive testing, if you're interested in the sound signature while on a wired connection, I felt that it remained largely similar. Keep in mind, all electronics are disabled during wired mode, so any digital signal processing will be disabled. JBL has publicly shared on their website's FAQ for the Everest 710 that it does not support AAC or aptX codecs, so we are likely left to simple A2DP profiles, which is a shame for those looking for higher resolution, but I honestly wouldn't expect it for a product marketed towards bassheads rather than audiophiles. Even then, with an average 10Khz - 22Khz frequency range, I wouldn't expect that those codecs would make a difference CONTROLS/FEATURES: The controls on the Everest 710 aren't particularly tactile, nor well-distinguished. The play button has some extra leverage, but it almost feels as though the volume-up/play/volume-down buttons are all one button. I can understand grouping them all together, but having different button heights or something would help make them easier to distinguish. I find myself struggling to get used to the controls, as I do own other headphones with more tactile buttons. But if this is your primary Bluetooth headphone, perhaps you won't struggle as I do. Regardless, they simply aren't as intuitive as other pairs I own. Holding the volume buttons for 3 seconds will go forward/back a track. While that works fine for skipping forward, that 3 second delay doesn't work as well for going back to a previous track. JBL should have opted for using the play button and using double/triple button presses for changing tracks. Altneratively, just don't have a 3 second delay. 1-1.5 seconds is probably enough for most people. The ShareMe 2.0 feature is where things actually get interesting. You can actually pair other Bluetooth headphones to the JBL Everest 710 and share the audio from the device paired to the Everest 710.This feature exists on some other headphones, but it is generally limited to headphones by the same manufacturer, or even the exact same model headphone. I'm glad to say that such is not the case with the Everest 710. Simply enable ShareMe 2.0 by pressing the dedicated button on the headphone, then put your other headphone in its pairing mode. The Everest 710 will then automatically search for other Bluetooth devices in pairing mode, and will connect to the first one it finds. During this process, you can only have one audio source connected to the Everest 710. I did not notice any degradation of audio quality with ShareMe 2.0 enabled on either of the headphones. Impressive! Although I don't know if this will have an impact on battery life. BATTERY: The Everest 710 boasts a 25 hour battery life, which I believe. I haven't gotten to fully test that claim, but I haven't had to charge the headphone after a couple days of extended usage. If you use them lightly or moderately and not extensively like I may, then you will likely make these cans last you the entire week or more. Additionally, they charge in a quick 2 hours, so you never have to wait very long to enjoy your tunes. OVERALL: The JBL Everest 710 has decent sound tuned towards bassheads and skips out on features geared towards audiophiles. The ShareMe 2.0 feature is excellent for sharing your tunes wirelessly with another listener. While the plastic quality is mediocre when compared to other cans, the synthetic protein leather and lightweight build keeps the cans comfortable for long listening sessions. Controls are not tactile nor easy to distinguish, resulting in a bit of a finicky experience. With the price and competing products considered, it becomes a bit difficult to forgive the corners being cut—at which point, the only distinguishing feature of this headphone is ShareMe 2.0, and the battery life (which is not substantially more than other headphones in this price range). While I don't think the headphone is bad, there are simply other options with a better design and higher resolution audio for around the same price or even less. Whether or not you'll get the same sound signature is certainly debatable. These headphones are marketed towards a basshead who likes the style of these cans, doesn't take interest in higher resolution audio, and doesn't mind the price tag. But for someone who is conscious of the price and features being offered, this just isn't a great value.

Solid base, great comfort, not top shelfJuly 24, 2017
The packaging was the worst thing about these headphones. Honestly when I first tried them out I was in a car with lots of surrounding noise and they sounded horrible. I kept trying to re-fit them on my head and ears with the same results, I do t crank music anymore either. I tried them again at home with mild background noise and was way more impressed. I own quite a few pair of high end headphones and have started using noise cancelling headphones way more often so I am used to that function. I ran through about three hours of music, a few TV shows, king Kong and a few phone calls on these bad boys and the best part was zero fatigue, my ears and head felt non the worse so these are comfortable for sure. The build quality seems to lack a bit, just not very solid feeling, almost toyish I guess. I would enjoy a little more crispness and a more solid build. I never charged them during the three days of playing with them and it held up great. Buttons (controls) weren't my favorite, between the delays and lack of buttons I'm just not a fan. The shareme feature is way cool though and worked flawlessly. So all in all a decent headphone I just don't think they hit the mark of equally priced headphones.

Share Music without sharing headphonesJuly 10, 2017
JBL really brings it big with their over the ear wireless headphones. Lets dive in and talk about the pros and cons (if any) about this set up. First if you have never heard of JBL let me start by saying they are one of the biggest leader in the audio industry. I remember when i was younger i had spent more money in my car audio then the actual vehicle was probably worth and JBL was definitely the way to go for show quality audio sound. Basically know that you are buying a product from a company that has a proven track record of putting out show quality sound. First off out of the box you will receive a carrying case, 3.5 mm cord for direct connection, and a micro usb cable to charge the headphones. The headphones collapse for easy storage into its carrying case. JBL claims a fast 2 hour charge with up to 25 hours of non stop audio playback. It took me about an hour to fully charge the headset and i have to say i have been using the headphones for 10 hours and i am not even half way through my battery life. This is honestly very impressive seeing as how most of my wireless headphones carry a battery life of only 10 hours. This is truly the longest battery life i have seen with the shortest recharge downtime. The headphones are synced via standard bluetooth set up which is no different then any other device you may of used. They come with a built in mic which provides high quality call sound and a noise cancelling mic. This is kinda nice because one thing i have noticed about built in mics is they tend to either bring in alot of feedback or background noise making it annoying for the caller on the other end to hear you clearly. These headphones gave me a call quality that was just as good as if i was talking on a LAN line and never once dropped out through the bluetooth. I want to talk about something that this headset does that i have personally never seen on another headset device that really makes it stand out and that is the SHAREME 2.0. The SHAREME 2.0 is a built in bluetooth software that allows other wireless bluetooth headphones to connect to the JBL headphones. This means that my wife can connect her headphones to my JBL headphones and she can listen to the same music that i am listening to. The day of having to share earbuds to listen to the same track is now gone. I found this part actually really awesome considering that we have similar taste in music and when we go to the gym to workout together we can share the same tracks through two separate headphones. Now understand something the second headset is basically piggybacking off the main headphones so is there a little bit of reduction in sound quality? Yes of course but not by much, i noticed the sound quality wasn't as good as my JBL but it wasn't horrible by any means. In all reality i don't think most people will even truly notice the difference too much unless you have an ear for music quality. Speaking of which lets talk sound quality. This is a JBL, whats to really say? The sound quality is awesome giving out a perfect amount of balance between your mids and lows without taking away from your highs and vocals. You basically get everything you want without one particular area overshadowing another. Now i am a very big bass fan, as far as the headphones go they are not the biggest sounding or producer of bass that i have seen but that's fine because the base quality was perfect and enough to keep me satisfied. One of the biggest problems i have with bass is that i like it loud but then it gets to the point to where it takes away from all my other sound quality. The JBL 710 produce just the right amount of bass to keep me happy while still providing equal quality sound which i would expect no less from JBL. The headphones do a very good job out keeping outside noise out due to there tight fit and well rounded job at sealing around the ear. Speaking of which these are hands down the most comfortable headphones i own to date. Most of my headphones start hurting my head after about 2 hours of music streaming, however i have had these on for 3 hours straight at one point with no discomfort whatsoever. There are alot of technical specs that i can get into discussing why this is a good set up and why you should buy it, but without making things too confusing all you need to truly know is that this a great sounding headset which is brought to you by a provider who in my opinion is a big leader in the audio industry bringing you awesome sound quality with some pretty cool features i haven't seen yet on any other audio devices out there. Usually most products i buy or review i have a few features that i don't like, however for me personally i could not find one thing wrong with this headset that would lead me to a negative review. I'm sure if you search hard enough you can find fault with any product but nothing stood out big enough for me to mention. Pros: -fast charge time -25 hour of battery life!!! -SHARME 2.0 -Superb sound quality -Crystal clear call quality. -Collapsible design -Comfortable fit Cons: -none that i could find

Not what i expectedSeptember 12, 2017
I was so excited to get these, but from the time I got them out of the pack, i wasnt impressed. They were pretty big on me. I didnt have much of a problem with the sound quality when i was close to my computer, but when i walked away, i noticed a lag from the video i was watching. Also, the battery didnt last as long as id hoped it would. Sorry JBL, i was really rooting for this..
