    Is the noise cancellation better than that for the Bose QuietComfort 25?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      Bose holds many patents relating to active noise cancelling methods, thus they still have the highest reduction in white noise tests and will likely remain so for a few years. However, this headset does have TruNote which calibrates the noise cancelling to your specific head. For example, if you wear glasses the Bose headset will arbitrarily provide the same noise cancellation and does not take into account the seal being made on your head. This headset will measure the seal and adjust the active noise cancellation to account for this. Additionally the headset offers some ambient awareness which is useful in certain situations. Practically speaking, if you were to be on a plane and try both of these headsets they would both reduce the unwanted noise significantly. It does seem though that you get a little more utility from the JBL. Plus I see Steph Curry wearing these so they must be cool.

            Yes the JBL Everest Elite 700 can operate as a wired headphone. The wire is included with the headphone and it includes a volume +/- button in addition to a multifunction button. However, you must use this cable as it is a narrow barrel cable that fits into the headphone side.

              The firmware and instructions are available on JBL's website. The easiest way is to connect them to a laptop with the included cable. According to JBL some third party cables lead to damage of the headphones especially during firmware updates.

              You can turn off the noise canceling on these headphones, as well they have a function called environmental awareness that lets a certain amount of ambient noise through so that you know what’s going on around you and it has three levels of awareness settings in addition to the ability to fully turn the noise cancelling off.
