Great Sound and Features/BT Connection Issues
I bought the black Everest 700 Elite's at Best Buy the day they came out. I paired it with my iPhone on the way home and the sound was amazing once I tweaked the EQ via the app. I hardly have any music on my phone because I have such a large amount and use a 7th gen iPod Nano which is equipped with BT. I was extremely disappointed to find out my iPod did not recognize my headphones. I tried my older iPhone, another Nano, a PS Vita, and an iPad with the same results....all devices would not recognize the headphones. Come on JBL, let's push this update so we can enjoy these amazing headphones on all our devices.

Think that the Elite 300 sounded beautifully?
At first the Elite 700 may not sound as clean as the Elite 300. The TruNote calibration feature (found in more expensive AKG headphones also by Harman) and the same driver formula shared with its on-ear cousin, the Elite 300 is a plus. Add Circumaural comfort with Harman Next-Gen Noise Cancellation, and the headphones can sound beautifully. Your ears need to get used to the TruNote calibration for the headphones to sound beautifully. Although not as beautifully designed as Harman's own Harman/Kardon headphones, these headphones can sound beautiful once you get your ears to get the hang of it.

Great Headphones, one personal flaw
As a Best Buy employee I am always on the look out for better headphones than my current pair. I always get the protection plan for them just in case something happens technically and I get to try a new pair. These headphones have it all. Amazing Sound, Great Noise cancellation, even ambient sound awareness so you don't have to take of the headphones to hear someone. However because I own several pairs of headphones, all of them work with the 4th gen apple tv I own. Except the Elite 700s. This is the only reason for my 3 star review because I use headphones at night while my fiancé sleeps. I hope it gets fixed with a firmware update, but as of right now the lack of this feature is a big deal for me.

Review and Firmware details
I just picked up a pair of the 700 Everest/Elite. I have to admit, they are much more comfortable than the QC-25 I tried a few weeks ago. Especially after wearing them for a few hours. The extra comfort and generous padding makes up for any real NC performance deficiencies.
Just a note about the latest firmware... There are no link in the FAQ to its download location! Here is a tip, browse to www.jbl.com/app and browse to the middle of the page in the orange box (below the Apple and Droid logos). See https://www.evernote.com/l/ADm4O89BiMlIZ6-x-WD4SLXXT3hVvoMnc4s

I bought these headphones after comparing them to the Beats bluetooth headphones which were far more expensive. I thought that the sounds from the JBL's was at least as good and the noise canceling feature is very good as well. One item of minor annoyance is that you have to have some sort of sound streaming in order for the noise canceling feature to remain turned on. This is slightly aggravating while on an airliner, but I simply turn on a white-noise app and reduce the volume way down and it works like a champ. It's an easy work-around, but hopefully JBL will fix that feature in the future. Overall, these are incredible from a sound, comfort and quality perspective, and I would buy them again over the next best option.

Great BT Headphone
The sound is natural and balanced with a very slight mid-bass emphasis. Not booming sounding and the bass does not sound muddy at all. The highs are crisp without being fatiguing. The very lowest frequencies are attenuated but it's not noticeable with most popular music. Great soundstage for a closed headphone. Plenty of volume. Echo cancelation works well but does effect the sound quality slightly which is typical. The over-the-ear design naturally blocks a lot of noise even without echo cancelation. APTX support would have been nice. They are very comfortable. They seem sturdy but I can't really comment on the durability since I haven't had them long enough. I have many headphones and am generally unimpressed with sound of Bluetooth headphones. Not in this case. Great cans!
Full disclosure: I am a Harman employee but I have not let that effect the objectivity of this review.

I'll make this short and sweet. These headphones sound incredible, both via Bluetooth and hardwired. I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw the unique design, but they're very comfortable and fit me perfectly. Lastly, the My JBL app is very user-friendly, which allows for the setup to be quick and painless. Overall, I'm very happy with this product.
P.s. If JBL's site is still backordered at the time of reading this, check out Best Buy. All of the new Everest models are currently (November 9th) available online and in store.

No burn in needed for these beauties!
After two days of using these, I feel these are great sounding headphones, and they didn't need burn in time. Out of the box, they're not bad. But, after using the My JBL Headphone app and tweaking everything as though they were made to order to my specifications, how can I say anything but they are outstanding, bar none! Once I tweaked them to sound like I wanted them to sound, I realized these were the perfect headphones! Full, warm, well rounded, clear sound. Just the way I wanted them to be. Bravo JBL! Nice job!

My headset will not fully charge. I connect it to charge and the red charge light illuminates for about 30 seconds and then goes out. Love these headsets, but this issue is rendering them useless
Your headphones are behaving rather unusual, it should charge properly once plugged in. I would highly suggest that you submit an email case to www.harmanaudio.com/contactus if your headphones are within one year from purchase.

How do I connect the Everest Elite 700s to my phone? There is not Bluetooth button and the manual does not say which buttons, if any, need to be pressed.
The bluetooth is also the power button that is located on the top the right ear cup. Make sure to have the headphones on so you can hear the audible voice. Press and hold the power/bluetooth button for 4-6 seconds until you hear the audible voice stating, "powering on....JBL Everest is ready to pair" Make sure you are in pairing mode and bluetooth range for the device you are trying to connect. JBL Everest should be recognized within a few seconds on the device. If you are still having issues with pairing your device, please contact your local JBL Customer Service for technical support.

Your manual on how to use this is pretty useless! I cannot find how to charge this or what to use to charge it when I am at work and not near a desktop computer.
We are sorry to hear about the issues you are having with our product. Unfortunately, the only way to charge the Everest headphones is with a micro USB charger. You can find the USB outlet on the headphones below the right ear piece next to the audio outlet.
