Bluetooth on-ear and over-ear headphones

Wireless headphones work using Bluetooth. This connection allows you to listen to music while your phone, laptop or tablet is at a distance of up to fifteen metres away. The battery in your headphones lasts between eight and thirty hours, depending on the model. Are your headphones out of power? You can fully charge them again in two hours. Nowadays, many batteries also have a quick-charge function. Fifteen minutes of charging is enough to listen for another two hours.

How do headphones work?

It's quite a technical explanation, but headphones work as follows: the audio from your music system is transferred via electrical signals to two small stereo speakers in your headphones. The headphones work according to the magneto-dynamic principle. This means that the drivers are able to produce sound through vibrations in the air. These vibrations then reach your ears.

Differences between on-ear and over-ear headphones

The main difference is that over-ear headphones fit over your ears, and on-ear headphones sit on your ears. Headphones that fit completely over your ears provide a different kind of comfort. The earpads of over-ear headphones enclose your ears, whereas on-ear headphones press and mould to your ears.


The compact (foldable) size of on-ear headphones offers the advantage that you can easily take them with you. Over-ear headphones are known for their slightly larger size. At JBL, over-ear headphones are also compact and super easy to take with you, whether on your head or in your bag. So both types of headphones are perfect for home, work or travel.


For the best wearing comfort, soft cushions over or on your ears are, of course, essential. JBL headphones have top-quality ear pads. The fit of on-ear headphones is also very important. When wearing them, they will automatically mould to the shape of your ears. In this way, you get your own personalised headphones. It is also possible to adjust and rotate the ear cups so that they fit snugly on your head.

Voice assistant

Need help? With one push on the ear-cup of your headphones, you can activate a voice assistant like Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. In this way, you can listen to your favourite tracks straight away. It's simple. Tell the assistant the title and artist of a track, and away you go.

Buy on-ear or over-ear headphones

Which headphones will be your best friend? Which are best for you entirely depends on your requirements. Go for over-ear headphones if you want maximum music enjoyment, and choose on-ear headphones if you like a smaller size. One way or another, JBL headphones will let you listen to your favourite music wherever you go.
