Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad experience I bought some for my son as a gift for Christmas - I got broken ones - one earphone just hung on the wire ... bought it a month before Christmas! two weeks of talking with support - the seller sent the return label - a month passed - the package was still on the way ... I bought the second as a gift - they promised to send it to Christmas - I received it on December 31 - and guess what ?! - volume and play buttons do not work !!!! - And this despite the fact that the first time I ordered a headphone not on Ebay or Amamzon - but directly from JBL - I ordered it again directly from Harman Cardon - and again defective ...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noise cancelation makes noise These work great except there is a fluttering static sound, like a fluttering wind when noise cancelation is on. It does block out background noise but also makes noise itself. For $200 i expect a lot better. Maybe these are defected? I dont think the noise was there the first day, this is day two and the noise is very noticeable. Also i tried the headphone cord and at one point it was only playing through one ear like an 80s walkman, i had to rotate it to get it to play through both, i expect that to be a problem if theres not a solid connection on day two. The static fluttering sound when noise cancelation is on is really horrible. Its quieter when it's off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features and design I have been using this product for just over a month, the sleek design is very comfortable and the features on it are good with the alexa app. However it is difficult at times to work with the alexa and JBL app, when pressing the button on the side of the headphones it can be temperamental, by this point it is easier to have just used your phone in the normal way. I have used these in the gym and they are great, however I have also used them when running and they give a wind noise through them which then distorts the sound. The volume of these is not able to counteract this as it is quite low. All in all, great for times where you are still and sat down, but not for activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and build qualty Bought this headset when I was on the night boat from Denmark to Norway. Before I bought it, I had to look at some reviews, and I did not regret the buy at all. Sound quality is amazing and so is the ANC. I listen mostly on Heavy metal, rock, punk and so on. Reason for why I bought the headset was so I could sleep on the boat with music and ANC and not get disturbed by other passengers. But the headset has also been used alot for traning, and sleep after night shift. I have some enoying neighbors lawnmowing at crazy hours. My brother has Bose Q35, and tested the Live 650BTNC and he was also amazed. Bose Q35 is more expensive. So he might change in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Where do I begin? This item broke less than a year after moderate use. Issues include occasional distorted voice, random disconnection, and most strangely, unable to turn off. This last one, no matter how odd, is a known issue with this device. A reset fixed it, for a few weeks, and came back again. About support, good luck finding a contact (at least for Canada side), and then, you are tossed into a loop from company A to company B to rep C from company D ...., JBL itself is non-existent and you have t deal with various other players. This is my second bad experience with this brand. My soundbar+sub also broke less than a year of use. This cannot be a coincidence.

Product Q&A

Do these come fulled charged or do I need to charge them before first use? 

Asked by: KAMJ
JBL Live 650BTNC would be factory charged when bought. We would suggest to download our JBL Headphones App and have your device connect with the headphones to view the battery level of the unit. You can also change the device name and modify equalizer settings with the app.

I am experiencing the issue with my pair of headphones: I cannot get them to turn off. Is there a solution around this? I have tried holding the power on/off slider for 5 seconds, it does not seem to work. Is it possible I have a defective unit? Thank you

Asked by: Anthony333
I’ve had this issue but only if I charge the headphones on a non jbl cord. Once I plug the headphones into the orange cord they came with, the issue resolves. Other than that, seamless operation. Very happy customer!

I have the headset for two weeks. Since yesterday, after disconnecting with my laptop, the headset stays ON. I can't turn off the headset unless I reset it by pressing the + and - buttons for few seconds. Any way to fix this issue? Thanks.

How hard is it to hear somepone with noise cancilling off

Asked by: Eli2
This would depend on the level of music that you're playing. If you're playing at max level then it would also be difficult to hear, but then if you're using a medium volume then you can still hear the outside well but not loud enough to compare to the music playing. If you have more questions, please contact us here. https://bit.ly/2zwFkYM
