Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so much i bought 2 I bought these because I love bass and quality. These are super well made and have minimal sound leakage, and sound just like my jbl car speakers which I love. My wife had some skull candy bluetooth headphones she had just bought the day before and we had to return them and buy her a pair of these because she wouldn't stop listening to mines. They sound clear, bass is deep but not muddy, but they are snug on my head. I have been working on loosening them up but its not easy with such great build quality. I stretch them and they go back to shape if i dont keep them stretched over night. So now I keep them on a big headed teddy hear when Im not using them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Set of Headphones for a Low Price The JBL 500BT is for sure a great set of headphones. At a price of $50, they work very well, and have some good comfortability. The 3-axis rotation on the ear cups allows for a better fit, which is really good. However, I do have to point out that there was no carrying case included, and I can't find any currently online which would fit the headphones. Furthermore, there is some white noise in the background when there is sound playing, and I have had times where Bluetooth connection started to stutter (but that may just be my phone). All in all, it's still a great product, and the bass on the headphones is also pretty good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best headphones I've ever owned! I've only had these headphones for two weeks, and I can't get enough of them! So many great features! The sound quality is out of this world. Download the JBL Headphone App, and you can set the equalizer to your preference. Or you can choose from the preset settings. The bass is phenomenal. Then on top of the typical JBL quality, you have easy access to your Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa while you are away from home. In less than a month we have a long plane trip that I am more looking forward to, I already have movies loaded to my tablet for the flight! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headphones, Great Value I purchased these (new) during a 1-day holiday sale on eBay for $30. For that, I figured they were worth a try--I'd been looking for over-ear wireless headphones anyway. I've had them for about a month now, and have been happy with them. They're comfortable on my large-ish head, aside from sometimes pinching my ears against my glasses (not unique to these, it usually happens with headphones). Sound is great quality, but I think there's a little bleed that others can hear if I go above a certain volume. Overall, great headphones at a solid price point. Would purchase again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After one week use. I've had these for a week. Right away, one thing you have to do is download the app and play around with the acoustic settings to make them sound better or at least make them better suited for you depending on your liking, which is a plus. They are comfortable, light weight and don't fatigue your ears too much after wearing them for long periods of time. The battery on these is perfect. I went all week using them without having to charge them. I did use them for 2-3 hours a day for 7 days. Another great thing about these headphones is that they feel durable, and look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely wonderful! This is exactly what I wanted from a headphones which doesn't have active noise cancellation. I know it sounds like a bad thing, but I don't like active noise cancellation headphones because they muffle the sound, it takes away the bass from the music. But these ones are wonderful, they are bit tight which provide wonderful passive noise cancellation environment. The sound is wonderful, it has clarity which one requires to watch a movie, it also has decent amount of bass to enjoy the music. Honestly, I love these headphones, and in it's way it is kinda perfect. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

this model is compatible with skype?

Asked by: jcsg85
Hi there, our JBL LIVE 500BT headphones can connect to devices over Bluetooth. As long as the device where your Skype is installed allows Bluetooth connection, you should be able to use it with the app.

How do i can actually turn the headset off... i keep sliding it, makes the sound, turns off, only to turn on again couple of seconds later...

Asked by: LostJBLuser
Hi there, we're here to help you out. The only thing you need to do to turn off the headphones is to slide the power switch once. If it turns on automatically, there could be something wrong in it. If the issue persists, please reach out to us here: http://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html

I have problems with pairing them to soundbar (it has bluetooth) ???

Asked by: Jure
Hello Jure, thanks for sending us this question on the JBL TUNE 500BT headphones. In a Bluetooth connection between 2 devices, one should transmit the signal and the other should receive it. Since both the Bluetooth features on a soundbar and these headphones can only receive audio signals from devices, they cannot be paired to each other. We hope this helps. If you have follow-up questions, please feel free to let us know through here: http://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html

How does the power switch work? I just opened the box and can't the power switch to slide into the "ON" position.

Asked by: palexmd54
Hi there, it doesn't necessarily need to be on the 'On' side for the JBL Live 500BT to turn on, you just need to slide it up so you can hear the sound on the headphones indicating that it's turned on. If you're still experiencing problems, please submit a case request and so we can assist you: www.jbl.com/support-contact.html
