    Can I give it 4.5 stars?

    They charged quickly (about 90 minutes) and immediately found a place on my ears. I wanted to compare them to my reference headset, audio-technica M50s. I listened to the JBLs for several hours. Wireless is very cool as one would expect. The E65s were easy to wear and had a very pleasing sound. Then I started looking for critical music to do quick-switch comparisons between the two headsets. I had the JBLs linked to my laptop while the M50s were plugged into a Focusrite USB interface on my desktop, both tuned into the same stream, I was able to switch headsets quickly enough to catch the subtle differences. Conclusion: The JBL E65s are very good Bluetooth headphones. They are comfortable and sonically pleasing although not as accurate as the M50s. As for operation, it wasn't a huge learning curve, I had them up and running in less than two minutes after the battery was charged. I like the JBLs. If they hold up like my war-torn ATs they will have earned 4.5 stars.

    Solid Sound and Noise Cancelling Works

    I needed a good set of NC headphones for flying. I hate trying to fall asleep and hearing the rumblings of the engine, people chattering, and the ever-present DING whenever the seatbelt sign goes on (constantly.) For the first time in however long, I actually slept on a flight with these on and watching a movie. The feature does leave a slightly audible hiss but distant chatter and incidental noise is drowned out or non-existent. Other reviews say that audio quality is sacrificed when NC is on, but I don't notice it. The sound is crisp, though I will say that the Sony's I tested along with these (ultimately returned the Sony headphones and kept these) sounded better, but the JBL sound was solid and did a much better job cancelling outside sound. They have a solid design that reminds me of a quality set of cans. I did return the first pair I bought because of a design flaw, but the second set is doing much better. Recommended for sound and features.

    Got these primarily for airline travel. Ear buds just don't cut it when trying to deal with crying babies and inconsiderate passengers. I put these puppies for the first time on during a cross-country flight and was in my own world, listening only to the soft peaceful music I enjoy minus the extraneous sounds in the cabin. Great full bodied sound with smooth lows and crisp highs. While listening to a video my wife shot of our granddaughter's concert, I could hear her breathing and even some of the whispering from others in the audience. Incredible!! Only one minor complaint: the top end of the volume could go a tad higher. NOTE- I was respectful to take them off during the flight attendant briefings.

    Average headphones

    Products sounds good. Don't be mislead by the in store demo. You can crank it up in the store and they sound great, but when you pair them to your device you are limited to the volume of the headset, which is not very loud. Big disappointment. Overall sound quality is good. Expect audio/video latency that cannot be corrected when using them for TV. That is just a blue tooth issue, not so much a product issue. They are fairly uncomfortable after about 30 minutes of use. Price was good. $139. Still debating returning them. Music sounds good and movies sound really good. But again, just an average quality head phone. Head piece is not padded and is fairly heavy. I would recommend this product, but don't expect to be blown away.

    Just bought these after also purchasing the JBL E55BT. Must say these ear cushions are a lot softer of the head. The memory foam molds perfectly to the surface of my head. The cushions tend to block out a bit more sound than the E55BTs. I can also compare these to the Sony WH-CH700N and I will say they are right there along side by side. Both Sound incredible but the JBLs kick a bit more bass. Enough to notice the difference. Both the JBLs and Sony headphones are build quite tough but one noticeable difference which can be a decider is that JBLs fold and also include a carrying pouch. The controls are great and easy to use, it just takes time to learn where the buttons are. Honestly these would get a 4.5 but the ear pocket is a bit on the narrow side.

    These JBL's were bought because I had some traveling coming up and I got tired of borrowing headphones from others. I got the JBL knowing the noise cancellation was not on the par of high end Sony or Bose. But the NC was not why I picked them up. I picked these up because they sound really really good. They have a very pleasing natural sound through all the frequencies (everybody hears differently btw). They are comfortable enough to wear on long flights. The Bluetooth works great! I also really like that the cord has a mic built in so when I am on Zoom or Skype, the calls sound better.

    Good noise canceling but bassy

    I admit I’m spoiled when it comes to headphones and have easily dropped double the amount on headphones to produce and mix music which has been my profession for more than a couple decades. My husband and son gave me these for Xmas and I was a little surprised, but I’m pleased with the output and they’re comfortable on the ears with excellent noise blocking capability. The phones are a little bassy and I can’t figure out how to adjust them to bring up the middle. Nonetheless, they would be great for working on a plane or a noisy cafe. They block out the world without the pricey sticker of a Bose.

    Really a 4.5

    I previously had the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless and my dog ate them. Got these as a gift and they are great, but some features are not as good as the skullcandy ones. Biggest cons are the adjustable head pieces are loose, so they can start to drop off your ears as you are running. Also, sound quality is good, but as others have said, they could go louder and the bass isn't the best. I am keeping these, as I do like that they fold up nicely and have a much better range than the skullcandy (I couldn't walk away from my phone with those without losing my sound). Overall, really not bad.

    The JBL E65BTNC Wireless Noise-cancelling headphones work great. When we purchased the product, it was being evaluated against BOSE and SONY models that fell into a similar category. When all was said and done, it came down to the value to dollar spent. Both competitive models produced terrific sound quality, and perhaps slightly better. Bottom line was that we still got good quality and a much more reasonable cost.

    This headset is great for schooling, doing some computer stuff. My only complaint is that they are really not noise canceling. They cancel a little bit of noise but not a whole lot. It connects to apple very great which I was very surprised. It isn’t bad for the price I paid which was about 65.00. If I paid the regular price I would have brought them back. It is trial and error that’s all.

    The sound quality is good overall, but lacks a little bit with the bass. The quality of sound cancelling is the best I have ever heard. It is almost like putting on gunfire cancelling headphones. They do become a bit uncomfortable after wearing them for more than 30-minutes, but this may be something only I experience due to fit. Overall, I would recommend.

    These headphones are very comfortable. The battery life is ok but the quality of sound is awesome! Range is decent too! I can leave my headphones connected to my phone or computer and take the dogs out of the house a bit before losing signal (20 feet give or take?) All in all, VERY pleased with this purchase.

    Solid noise cancelling headphones for the price. I do a lot of international travel and long haul flights and these are great for blocking out airplane noise. Only thing holding me back from 5 stars is that the jbl logo started to peel up on the corner straight out of the box, but I don’t care enough to exchange them so...

    Good noise cancelling headphones to start with

    I got these headphones because my job went to a "open office" layout. I had no idea how difficult it would be to concentrate in this format. I got these headphones because they were more affordable than the really nice noise cancelling headphones (which were around 300-350 dollars. They are working well for me.

    This is my first set of Bluetooth headphones and so far I am really pleased with them. They sound great and fit over my ears well. The controls take a little bit of getting used to because of their location on the right side and the fact that they have to be operated by feel. All in all I'm satisfied with these headphones.

    After reviewing multiple options I chose the JBL's because of price. It was tough for me to justify $200+ dollars for other headphones. I've been happy with the quality sound, Noise Cancellation, and Battery Life. However, my one complaint is the heat around my ears after listening for 20+minutes.

    These headphones have great presence and a balanced range. Comfortable to wear and good at blocking outside distractions. The only complaint I have is the controls are difficult to manipulate and are a lttle cheesy in their touch. Makes me a little worried about the longevity of the controls.

    In my opinion these headphones BY FAR sound the best for the $ spent. I love these, and the battery life is truly impressive!!! My only “complaint” is that the Bluetooth option for phone calls doesn’t have great sound quality for the person on the other line - but for how I use them it’s not really an issue.

    Very good set of noisecancelling headphones for the price. They fold up nicely. There is a small hiss in noisecancelling which reminds you that they are not a $400 set. I worry that the pivot points are weak so you do have to be gentle with them. But for the price, they are the best I’ve purchased.

    This was my first set of noise cancelling headphones. I am a huge JBL fan, and I feel these hold true to having great sound. My only gripe is the adjustable head strap. It’s very loose so when you carry it , the ear pieces slide down a lot. Seem to stay out when they are on my head though.
