I needed an over the ear headphone to use with a Samsung Series 8 TV. Originally I purchased another brand RF headphone with a charging base. The base plugs into the audio out jack of the TV. Oops, my TV doesn't have an audio out that would work with that base. But it does have native support for a Bluetooth audio output.
I exchanged my previous purchase for the JBL Live 500BT headphones. Pairing through the TV's setup was simple, and simply turning on the headphones while the TV is on initiates the connection.
Sound quality is excellent through the headphones, and noise cancelling near total. I can't hear the phone ring, or the wife calling while I'm watching TV with these on!
The charge lasts a long time. The specs say 33 hours of listening. I've probably gone over 20 hours before charging, but did not run the charge down in that time.
I purchased these on sale, and my value rating is based on the sale price.
Thought I'd try a different brand of headphone and saw these on sale and figured it would be a good time to see what the JBL's are like and I was blown away and couldn't believe that I'd gotten them for under a $100! Not only can I connect them to my phone at the same time, (phone calls take priority over everything else when connected.), but as soon as I'd charged them the first time and was on my deck listening to them a neighbor had said something to me and without taking the headphone's off, I'd pushed the Talk Thru button on them and could hear her clearly! Really believe that I got a good deal and really love them! Which are a lot more comfortable than the Sony WH-XB700's I have and seem to be better made quality-wise. Only complaint was the creaky right ear cup though I fixed that by spraying a little WD-40 between the earcup and the controls. Haven't creaked since.
I just recently purchased these and I already love them. My brother has the exact same pair and I’ve used his in the past. I bought these on sale. The sound is excellent. I like that you can personalize the EQ to your liking or use one of the presets on the app (you have to download it). It doesn’t say it is noise canceling but they do block out a lot of sound. The ear cushions are comfortable. My ears stick out a smidge in the middle so I do have to take breaks from wearing them for long periods of time. The specs say the headband is not adjustable but they are adjustable near the ear cups. The specs also say there is a carrying case included but mine did not come with one unless they mean the case it came in which is removable and can double as a carrying case, I guess. All in all, a great product for a reasonable price.
If you have been working from home like many people, these headphones are a must have. When I say that they block out the noise around me, they truly block out the noise around me. I am on the following platforms all day: Google Meet, Google Classroom, and Zoom. I need to be able to hear people and they need to be able to hear me without all the background noise and these headphones are my best investment. These are a MUST HAVE!
I got these to replace me BOSE headphones which the material covering the part that sits around my ears was starting to fall off. I use them mainly with my TV while watching movies. I have a blue tooth transmitter connected to my TV. This way I can watch movies without disturbing my family, especially at night when they are in bed.

Great buy on sale.
I purchased this for a relative who is recovering from some very serious health issues. He played guitar in bands for a long time and right now music is his most enjoyed activity. He has downloaded a large number of songs on his Ipad and is new to that whole process. He has limited resources due to his medical condition, so I wanted to get something that had quality sound. He said that is sounds fantastic and is very comfortable. I have several JBL items and have found them to be quality at a good price.
After trying many I settled for this JBL, bought to wear while cutting my yard on my riding mower. I was totally surprised the way they close out surrounding sound where I actually have to reduce the volume as they seem to adjust accordingly to noise around me ...these need or be on your list of consideration. I sure they will exceed your expectations.
I recently purchased these headphones to use for my online classes. I had wonderful experiences with JBL Bluetooth Speakers so decided that I would give these a chance. They were totally worth every cent! I love using them because they are so comfortable and easy to use. The sound quality is on point. I would truly purchase again.
A:AnswerNancy, suggest purchasing a separate wall plug or using the wall plug from another device (such as your cell phone, which is what I do). There are also outlet plugs that include USB charging capability.
My opinion: JBL could have been a little more helpful in their response to you, since they don't provide the wall plug with the product.
A:AnswerI am using these over the ear headphones for a similar purpose. I find the quality of the sound to be excellent and the headphones, themselves, are good quality. The only downside for me is that after one hour or so, since I’m wearing behind the ear hearing aids as well, that they get a little uncomfortable. I take them off for a few minutes and am comfortable putting them back on after that brief rest period.
