    WHICH ONE TO GET

    Posted
    IFLYALOT

    I bought these JBL E65BTNC and the Bose Soundlink Wireless 229.99 version and trying hard to decide which ones are better. Tough to do in store. It's so close I'm having a hard time deciding. Things positive for Bose: less weight, controls slight better feel, like the more padded headband portion, and maybe slight more room inside cup for ears and maybe very slightly more crisp sound. Things positive for JBL: Noise canceling which can be noticed to a degree, weight (little heaver which could be a good thing for speakers), more rich and full sound with bass, also when you move the headphones to your neck area the speaker portions rotate with the pads down which in my opinion is better/Bose only rotate opposite direction and have padded portion facing up. Makes it little more difficult to move your head around with Bose. Big Plus JBL $30 less expensive. I give the Bose the edge for comfort and the JBL slight edge in overall sound which is ever so slightly better for me. JBL offers more pressence. Both sound good but JBL selling point 30 bucks cheaper and has active noise cancelation. Also worth mentioning Bose headphones get a nice semi-ridged carrying case and with the JBL I got nothing even though it shows a bag.

    I bought these headphones for my son. I chose these over the beats for him even though he asked for beats. I chose these because I know JBL is top notch. I have always like JBL and these headphones DO NOT let you down! The sound is crystal clear and the noise cancelling is crazy good. I can't believe how much sound they drown out. The volume is incredible, even at high volume they are still nice and clear. BlueTooth is Very good, battery life is great, style is nice, fit is great, build quality is nice. I really liked how they came with a cord, so you can use them wired or with Bluetooth. My son likes to use the wire sometimes in case he drops his phone, it slows the impact of his phone hitting the ground. He also like how they fold and the bag that came with them, so he can put them in his backpack. Overall I really like these and the biggest part is my son Loves them! He likes them much more than the older beats he had. He said I made the right call getting him these over the beats. He legitimately said he is a HUGE fan of JBL now. :)

    I bought these to wear on my Metro commute into the city to replace my AKG earbuds that came with my phone. These are better in every way. When I turn the active noise cancelling off, most of the ambient noise disappears, and I can still faintly hear the conductor's announcements, which is a huge plus. I find myself turning the noise cancelling off and on occasionally just to admire the technology. I've had these for a few weeks and used them for 5 or 6 commutes (roughly an hour each way, so 10 to 12 hours total), plus around the house for a few hours and have not had to charge since I first did. I got these for $100 as a deal of the day but thinking about it I would have paid normal price as they are still much cheaper than most of the name brand competition.

    I used to think JBL was too bright sounding and then I realized that I was used to listening to music with skewed equalization. Then I started to listen to and mix music with a flat or reference eq. I couldn't believe what I wasn't hearing. Ever since then, I really appreciate JBL's sound. It is clear and allows me to hear everything. I now use JBL reference monitors in my studio. I have several sets of headphones. These sound great! The wireless Bluetooth function is really nice! Love being able to listen to my music from my phone and iPad. This is my first set of noise cancelling headphones and I do like the "added" silent listening. These are comfortable to wear as well!

    I listened to a lot of headphones before I bought these. The highs and mids are excellent. Very clear, some of the best on the market for clarity in my opinion. the bass is great not overpowering like my beats but just right. the noise cancellation is amazing! I can listing to music at a low volumes as I mow the lawn and not hear the mower at all. They can get louder the some of my other over the ear headphones as well. fit is snug, they stay on well. I don't care for the sound of the 450BT or the 55BT at all. But I love these. only thing thats odd, if you want to plug them in, it uses a 3.5mm to a 2.5mm cord. but it comes with one and I don't plan on using them plugged in anyway.

    Needed to replace old headphones and wanted a wired pair and after testing these headphones, in store, I realized I could hear elements of music I wasn't aware of and when I used them at home, tonal notes and phrasing in music were clear and vibrant. Although the headphones are also wireless, I prefer the wired option and enjoy the long cord that comes with the product. Fairly easy to set up and JBL is leading company for headphones and other music products. Great buy and sound for price.

    This is the second set of headphones I’ve purchased. The first was for my step-daughter and she wears them everywhere we go. She absolutely loves them. The second I bought for my wife since she like led them as much as her daughter. I would recommend them to anyone who loves to listen to music on the go. Only negative review is that we had a pairing issue where it would not allow the headphones to be found via Bluetooth connection. This was resolved with a simple customer support call.

    I originally needed a wired head set for use with my Oculus Go. These were on a great sale during holiday sales so I gave the demo a listen and was very impressed. Was originally thinking I would get Beats Solo 3's and ended up spending about $100 less and getting sound quality at least as good if not better than the Beats! I use the bluetooth function for when I want to watch tv in bed without disturbing my wife and the wired function when connected to my VR headset. Love the versatility and sound quality all in one!

    I've had this set for about a month and I enjoy these headphones very much. The sound quality is excellent, and they are amazing for frequent travelers (especially flyers). I try not to use them when it''s raining or snowing, because they are not waterproof and I'm paranoid that something will happen to them. The only problem that I sometimes have with these is that from time to time it looses connection, when I'm outside and the wind is blowing strongly. Even though I would still give them 5 out 5 stars.

    I typically like lighter headphones, but started traveling a bit and wanted something to block out noise on the plane. These are great! I find the heavy but comfortable. They feel well made. The battery life is decent and I like that I can have them paired with multiple devices. The sounds and noise cancelation seem great to me. I do have a bit of hearing loss so I don't claim to be terribly discerning, but they are the best sounding headphones I have owned.

    I got these headphones for a good deal ($99) and they are definitely worth what I paid. I'm not sure I would have paid full price for them ($199 at that time) just because there are probably better options once you get into that price range. But they are comfortable and the sound quality is excellent. They are not loud, but the sound is very clear and the bass is good. The noise cancelling seems good although I haven't put that to full use yet.

    Working from home and living in a noisy household (with men), these were indeed a lifesaver! It was “love at first sight” when I tried them on in the store and heard complete silence. Listening to music was an added plus! Being a Bose Girl normally, I am VERY impressed with JBL! I am now a fan!

    Saw these on and in store display. They fit great and snuggly as noise canceling headphones should. The noise canceling feature works great. I never fly without noise canceling headphones and it was time to buy a new pair when I found these. I have owned more expensive headphones but these measure up to any I have owned in the past at what I think is a very reasonable price.

    I have been using noise-cancelling headphones for many years. Although this is the third pair that I've owned, this is my first wireless pair. I use the when I'm flying and for workouts. In both cases they greatly reduce ambient noise, allowing my music or podcasts to come through clearly. The sound quality is outstanding. Being free of cords allows me to use these more easily and in more situations.

    I was hesitant to spend the money for noise canceling headphones, since I just use ear buds. I travel a lot and the long haul flights 12+ hours can be unpleasant with all the noise I figured I'd give it a try. I am so glad I did. These headphones cancel the m majority of background noise and provides excellent quality when I'm listening to music or watching TV. Love them!!

    The headphones are excellent when compared to other major brands like Sony, Beats, and others. The sound quality is great and the headphone itself is very durable. The battery life matches with what is written on the box. The battery life for most headphone companies come up short as identified on the box. It is worth every dollar spent on the product.

    I use these for trans flights to Hong Kong from Boston. The noise canceling works very well. They are soft on the ears and do not press on my glasses while wearing. I did have an initial issue with the cord as the wire was exposed outside of the membrane. Best Buy replaced immediately with no concern. I reccommend these earphones.

    I have always loved JBL as a good value brand with good sound quality. These were a gift and I listened to a bunch of sets side by side. There were some that sounded a bit better (and by better I mostly mean bassier) but they didn't sound 2-3 times better than these (and that's what they cost). For the money, these a 5STAR.

    As a professional musician I am very familiar with JBL products in the commercial sense. These do not disappoint. Flexible, comfortable and adaptable to most situations. Not too big and clunky like some other models and they sound great. Big boomy bass is easy to get. Clarity and crispness in the highend is what makes these a good buy at this price point.
