On-ear headphones typically offer a more immersive audio experience than earbuds, plus some find them a lot more comfortable as well. Well, JBL's Tune 510BT are better than most. How? Let us count the ways. They offer the brand's signature Pure Bass sound and have wireless Bluetooth 5.0 streaming. Then there's their workhorse of a battery, which will give you up to 40 hours of listening time on a single charge. How about some voice assistance? Just press the the button on the ear cup and get Siri or Google on the job.
“These are a very good headphone, and I don't just mean based on the price,” said one shopper. “These are an all-around great headphone! I had Beats for four years that just fell apart. Searched on a budget and decided on these, and I don't feel like I am sacrificing at all. Very comfortable. Not tight on my head at all. I travel on airplanes twice a month, so I wear these for hours on end. No earache or head pressure. I also like that the controls aren't directly on the side so when I doze on a plane the volume doesn't get adjusted or pause is hit.... Sound is crisp, bass is bumping, volume is perfect — no complaints!”
It's not just, um, all about that bass here...though, yeah, it'll blow your mind. These cans can also pump out tunes for 35 hours on a single charge. Add hand-free calling and voice control, and you're looking at the total package.
Know what? When it comes to the 760NCs, the following testimonial is more convincing than any sales pitch of ours....
"I have two young kids and needed some noise-cancelling headphones when I started working from home. I didn't want to spend $350 for Sony or Bose, so I took a chance on these ones and Im super glad I did," said this mother-knows-best. "I also recently took a flight and put the NC to the test, and I ended up falling asleep on the plane because it worked so well — ha ha. Ive never done that before. You can stop comparing headphones because these ones are perfect!"
If you'd like a more budget-friend alternative and don’t mind using wired 'phones, then the Tune 500s are a decent option.They're only $25 but punch well above their weight when it comes to offering up clear sound with pure, deep bass. Some other perks: They're lightweight, foldable and come in four different colors. If there's a more impressive testimonial than this one, we haven't see it: "Love these. They're better than my last pair, which were Sony... They have better sound than my Beats earbuds as well!"
Aside from their sweet $20 markdown, these buds offer another cool perk: dual-connect techonology, which allows you to take calls or listen to music with either bud (or both). One benegit: you can use one and leave the other one in the case to save battery life.
We all know Apple’s AirPods are one of the most popular wireless earbuds on the market. But they’re also some of the most expensive; a pair can easily run you more than $200. Fortunately, JBL has a few primo alternatives. One of them are their Vibe 200TWS True Wireless Earbuds, which bring robust bass and clear tones at a very wallet-friend price — only $50. The 200TWS has 20 hours of combined playback; five hours with the earbuds plus an additional 15 hours with the charging case. They come with three sizes of ear tips to ensure a perfect fit.
“These are the perfect earbuds,” raved a shopper. “They sound great, and even just having them in without any sound yet just cancels out so much background noise it’s crazy!.... The sound quality just sounds super balanced whether you have one or both in at the same time.... Smaller than most ear buds and case is not bulky at all. About the size of a small matchbox.... Must-have ear buds.... Really nice!!!”
If, on the other hand, you prefer earbuds that have a snugger fit, the Vibe 100TWS could be more your style. The soft earbuds form a perfect seal in your ears for extra sound clarity, and they’re sure to feel comfortable even after hours of listening to your favorite audiobooks. They have a combined battery life of 20 hours — five in the earbuds and an extra 15 hours with the charging case. They’re also just $50
“I bought these on a whim. I already have Sennheiser buds, but I was looking for something I could take along on long drives,” said one happy shopper. “Good sound and volume was what I was looking for, and these deliver. At first I thought they were tinny, but after a few hours the sound warmed up and the bass came through nicely.”
Love your bass but hate clutter? This pair keeps it ultra simple, ultra compact...and ultra affordable. And oh yeah: They're less than half price right now.
THE pair for people who like to be as unencumbered by their personal-audio gear as possible. How unencumbered will you be? These babies weight just .64 oz. Oh, and they sport one-button operation on their non-tangling, hardly-dangling cord. All that freedom won't leave you deprived of excellent audio quality, though, thanks to the 110BT's dual 9mm drivers. Said this funky frau: "I love heavy bass songs and I know this is a bit dramatic, but seriously, my soul is SO happy with the bass, and not crazy treble, it's very balanced out. They're amazing. I even had my husband yell at me to see if I could hear him, and it was like a little mumble in the background. Love. Love. Love."
