JBL... Man, I remember growing up wanting a set of JBLs in my ride. They have always been known as one of the best speaker manufacturers around. Well, no surprise that I found myself very anxious to listen to the Everest 750NC headphones.
Looking at the box, the packaging wasn’t quite up to the standard of similarly priced cans. It was a tad thin and light, but attractive none the less. But once I got to the contents… Very nice! An attractive, sturdy, soft shell case that has the look of worth. Inside is a beautiful set of headphones, nicely arranged, with a small compartment containing a charging cable and headphone cable. The headphones are very well built. The controls are very subtle, nearly unnoticeable, but easy to operate. Upon picking them up, you can just feel the quality of the components. They are very substantial and solid, yet fluid in movement and joint flexibility. The ear cushions feel like soft leather gloves (very supple), and the padding is top notch. I have the blue set, and I have to say they look great! I tried them on to adjust them, and the comfort level was incredible. Everest must have been chosen to reference reaching the top, because these are the most comfortable set of cans I have put on, period, and yes, I have tried quite a few. The flexibility is crazy on these. Thumbs up to JBL on product design! No doubt!
I hooked the headphones up to my phone, selected one of my favorite tunes, and pressed play… The first thing I noticed was the sound approach. By this, I’m referring to the sound focal point – audiophile-like, bass heavy, rock-centered, hip-hop centric. I would say the Everest 750s fall into the audiophile category, with a subtle hint of power behind the sound. Every song I played, from several genres, sounded accurate and rich with great clarity. Man, these things sound great! The noise cancellation is on par with some of the best I have had the pleasure of trying. You will definitely hear musical subtleties that are normally not noticed, and you will definitely notice the differences in production quality among albums/songs. Excellent sound from these cans!
What else is there to say about these JBL cans? They look great, feel great, and sound fantastic! This one is really a no brainer in my opinion!
