      The "NC" in the model # of Everest Elite 750NC should stand for "NO COMPARISON"! They are truly in a class by themselves. LIKES: 1- Stunning Audio: tight bass, sweet highs, clear vocals: 10 - 22,000 Hz frequency response 2- Longest Bluetooth range of any device I have ever tested, while delivering sweet music & telephone calls for up to 20 hours via the internal Li-ion rechargeable battery 3- Lightweight & extremely comfortable for extended use / across the country flights 4- Buttons are organized in a logical arrangement on the headphones & allow Power: On / Off; Bluetooth: On / Off; Telephone Call: Pick-Up / Hang-Up; Volume: Up / Down; Music Control: Play / Pause; Forward / Backward; NC: On / Off; Ambient Aware: Low / High / Off 5- Foldable for quick, no fuss storage with carry case included - see photo showing headphones folded in carry case 6- Noise cancellation is extremely effective across the entire frequency spectrum 7- Ambient Aware allows you to adjust the amount of isolation from your environment. This is individually & completely adjustable by the wearer, even tunable for each ear separately. See photo of the headphones in the acoustic test room (our theatre) 8- TruNote Auto Sound Calibration calibrates the sound of the headphone to the individual wearer. A personalized sound equalization is created for each user independently 9- Completely customizable audio equalization is effortless via the app. The app also provides the gateway for future headphone software upgrades. The JBL App even allows adjustments to be made from the app, rather than just from the buttons on the headphones 10- Wired or Bluetooth connect, with adaptors included in a special pouch within the carry case, shown in photo DISLIKES: NONE! SUMMARY: JBL Everest Elite 750NC (NC = "No Comparison") Over-Ear Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones are truly in a class by themselves. I was totally blown away by the audio quality & customizable design of these personal listening devices & unequivocally recommend them!!

      Good Sound but Ridiculous Complexity

      I’ve owned and enjoyed JBL products for decades. It’s one of the first brands I think of when I want high quality audio. The Everest Elite 750NC enhances my positive perception that JBL usually offers excellent sound reproduction. The earphones’ design is not unique when compared to others—the basic design has after all been around since WWII—but it is very comfortable and could easily be warn for long flights. The noise canceling function is very good in most settings. (Note, however, these do not appear to be ANSI-rated for ear protection when working with machinery or in other industrial environments, although I could not find any such warning or information in the voluminous, unreadable multi-lingual documentation. In sum, here are the positives: Comfort; Very good music reproduction; Easy Bluetooth pairing; Rechargeable battery; Includes compact case, necessary cords, and airplane adapter; Good noise-canceling function. What more could one ask? A lot in this case. JBL seems to have fallen into the contemporary trap of equating complexity with quality. I’ve owned high-quality noise canceling (non-Bluetooth) headphones for more than a decade, and it has ONE function button. The JBLs have SEVEN extremely small controls, all clustered on the right earphone. One would think that mastering these would be helped by informative instructions. Not so! Obviously, JBL intends to sell these world-wide, and thus includes a “Quick Start Guide” that has 28 foldout panels with 4- or 5-point type face, virtually unreadable and useless. The only way I could get instructions was to (1) download the guide from JBL;’s website, (2) enlarge the pdf document by 400%, and (3) print relevant (English) pages. Even the few graphics (see photo) are nearly indecipherable. The unit is warranted for one year (typical) but contains the notice that the earphones “may deteriorate from use or storage.” In sum, these are good earphone that are overburdened by—and overwhelm the owner with—too many functions (e.g., “Ambient Awareness,” “TruNote Calibration”) and excessive complexity.

      My New Favorite Headphones

      PROS: - Noise cancelling (that you can disable/enable with "Ambient Aware") - Great sound (which you can customize with the app on your phone) - Long battery life - Comfortable to wear (even with glasses) - Folding design - Nice hard case included CONS: - The earcups are super comfortable, but the headband could have used more padding When you open the box for the 750NC, the first thing you see is the included hard shell carrying/protective case. I was surprised how small the case is, but that's due to how compact the 750NC fold up for travel. Inside the headphone case is another smaller case, which holds the charging cable, 3.5mm audio cable, and flight adapter. I love that JBL went the extra mile to make a nice protective case for the headphones and include them, especially when other manufacturers just include a simple travel pouch that doesn't really protect your headphones from anything other than dust. I used the 750NC right out of the box without installing the "My JBL Headphones" app (JBL put a little card in the box asking you to install it on your phone when using the headphones). While your music will still sound great, I HIGHLY recommend downloading the companion app. It's great for tracking the battery life on your headphones, but the equalizer is the real reason to install the app on your phone. I'm able to enjoy more genres with the EQ. Now for the real reason to pick these up over other JBL headphones: the adaptive noise cancelling (ANC). The 750NC are the first pair of headphones I've ever owned with noise cancellation, and I love it so much. I haven't had a chance to test them out on a flight, but they're amazing in a coffee shop when you just want to zone out and enjoy your music or study/work. The 750NC even has a feature called "Ambient Aware" that lets you hear your surroundings, which you can scale to how much noise you want to let in. BOTTOM LINE: While I wish the headband was more comfortable, I can't find anything to really complain about. Battery life is fantastic, sound quality is amazing, ANC works great, and they fold up for travel.

      Good Headphones, but with issues

      First, let me start off by saying that I had the highest hopes for the JBL Everest Elite 750NC headphones. At $299, these should have premium sound. Unfortunately, the set that I received has issues which I feel are preventing me from making a complete review. I cannot give these headphones anything more than 2 stars because at moderately high volume levels, I am having massive distortion with bass that these should easily be able to handle. It only happens when noise cancelling is active and can be eliminated by holding the headphones firm against your ear--but one shouldn't have to do those things. Further, sound quality and volume is considerably lower when noise cancellation is off. It sounds very flat and you can't turn the sound up enough to get it up to the levels it easily achieves with noise cancellation activated. It can handle the highs and mid-range, but if it's a loud scene with explosions or just really loud, the distortion starts sound like a blown speaker. I think I have a faulty set and have contacted JBL to inquire about a resolution. Until then, I can't give a fair review of the headphones. As far as build quality, I found the headset to look very nice and feels like it was made of quality material. The ear pieces are very comfortable and the headband doesn't bother me. The controls are also easy enough. JBL also included a very nice hard carrying case with a mini case inside for the micro USB charging cable and the 3.5mm audio cable that are included. I thought this was a really nice touch rather than just have them bouncing around in the main case. For now, I'm going to assume my experience is isolated and that I have a defective set. Although it's worth pointing out that others have experienced similar problems with bass. JBL says that what I am experiencing is not a normal, but we are still troubleshooting. Until this is resolved, I don't feel like I can make accurate reviews of the other noise cancellation, ambient awareness, and TruNote features. I will make updates once we have resolved the issue.

      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!

      In this price range I would consider these to be premium headphones. I have had quite a few different pairs of Bluetooth headphones over the past several years including Studio Beats, B&W P7's, Audio-Technica DSR7BT's and Plantronics Back Beat Pro's to name a few. Having said this I expected a pretty good set of headphones based on their reputation and having used the previous JBL Everest model. I'm said to say that I am somewhat disappointed in the overall performance of these. The sound quality at lower volume levels is pretty good and has decent clarity. The bass comes out really distorted and not really as tight as it should be. I downloaded the app and played with the EQ settings and found that turning it off provided me with the best balance between lows, mids and highs. The TruNote Auto Calibration in the app, actually made the sound worse, so I ended up not using it. The only way I could actually find to turn it off after it calibrated, was to turn the headphones off and then back on and the TruNote audio was off. I did like the noise cancellation within the app. I often changed the settings based on what I was doing so that I could be aware of what was going on around me, when the situation required it. The buttons on the headphones have taken some getting used to also. Instead of double or triple tapping the buttons to change the track, you have to hold the button for 3 secs. This is somewhat annoying and when you are wearing them, it is somewhat difficult to distinguish between the buttons. The headphones were certainly comfortable to wear for an extended period of time and I never got the sore neck or heavy head that I get with some other over the ear headphones. I do appreciate being able to use the line cord if the battery dies and I liked the carrying case also with the picture on it that shows you how to fold the headphones to fit them in the case. Overall, these are decent headphones, but for this price, I might consider some other options. I would recommend them for the comfort, good battery life and good noise cancellation. However, if you want good bass and easy toggling for volume and changing the tracks on your device, these aren't the best.

      Very Good But Not As Good As Bose

      The JBL Everest Elite 750NC headphones clearly are advertised to compete with the Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones - but they don’t quite rise to the occasion. Both headphones are fully wireless and sport active noise canceling technology (that Bose perfected years ago) - and both have comfortable over-the-ear cushioning (though the Bose are more comfortable). Both headphones allow for a non-bluetooth connection - and both include flight adapters for airplane use. So: the JBL’s compete admirably with Bose in comfort and volume - and their style appears to bridge the gap between Bose and Beats (and I'm not a fan to Beats). But for their price, the JBL’s can’t hold a candle to the Bose headphones they are up against. The only functional difference that the JBL’s have to advertise is a button to toggle between three levels of active noise canceling. Overall noise canceling is far better in the Bose headphones but the toggling on the JBL’s might be attractive to people using them in airports or while biking (or around troublesome children). The biggest issue with the JBL’s is their sound - the equalization sounds off. While every type of music I listened to sounded good, it didn’t sound great (and surely couldn’t compete with the Bose sound). It wasn’t an issue of bass or treble being off - it was more an issue of imbalance. Music just sounded off. The JBL’s have a calibration feature that is supposed to adjust your listening experience once you try the headphones on but I wasn't aware of any positive adjustment. The quick-start “guide” has print that is nearly microscopic - and it’s poorly written and illustrated (one of the buttons on the headphones isn’t even documented as far as I could see). The JBL headphones are very good but they aren’t great - they surely don’t rise to the Bose standard.

      All-day Comfort and Rich Sound

      I work at home in a job that requires full concentration. I am good at focusing on what I am doing, but when our dogs start playing together, the neighbor is mowing his lawn, and my husband is singing along with his tunes across the hall, I need help blocking everything out and giving me something pleasant and work-conducive to listen to. The JBL Everest 750NC Over-Ear Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones are doing the trick. I have tried several brands and styles of headphones over the years – over-ear and in-ear – but I had never found any that were both effective and comfortable. To be effective, I need headphones that deliver great sound while shutting out other things. I also need them to be so comfortable that I forget I have them on; otherwise, they are a distraction. The first day I wore the Everest 750NC headphones, I did, indeed, forget I had them on. The over-ear cups are soft and cushy and fit snugly around my ears without strangling them. The control buttons are easy to reach and distinguish from each other, and the overhead piece is adjustable and rests lightly on my head. As soon as I made the Bluetooth connection with my iPhone (very easy) and had the JBL app installed and everything adjusted (also very easy), I was able to forget that lawn service guys and a crew installing AT&T’s new gigabit fiber cable were right outside my window. I don’t claim that there was zero noise in my world that day, just that it was overcome and ameliorated to the extent that I could ignore it. I also don’t claim to be an audiophile, but I do like good, rich sound that lets me hear every instrument in the orchestra and every voice in a conversation. The JBL Everest 750NC headphones provide that. The JBL app has presets and individual adjustment options that have allowed me to custom-set the headphones to my sound preferences. For example, the Ambient Aware feature has 4 noise-cancelling levels, from Off to High, and the equalizer gives me the manufacturer’s presets as well as the ability to create custom presets. The app makes it easy for me to change any of these settings if I go from a quiet room to a café or switch from Mozart to a TED talk. The app also tells me at a glance how much power is left in the battery, as well as a lovely voice that politely interrupts my music to tell me when the battery is getting low. My only complaint about the JBL Everest 750NC headphones is with the instruction brochure – truly miniscule print. I finally gave up trying to read the instructions and downloaded the PDF version, so that I could increase the size until it was legible. Fortunately, everything about these headphones and the app is straightforward and logical, so I won’t need to read the instructions again – I'll just enjoy the all-day comfort and rich sound.
