Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wire length Good sound for price but unbelieveably short connection wire!!! Why? Did you guys on JBL think that everybody in the world uses notebooks?! My office computer is on the floor, so I have to buy additional cable. Very strange business decision. 1.5 m will be quite good, but you decide to save some money. I think you will not, because many people with classic computer cases will return headphones back to store after opening the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones Bought the white ones around a month ago for my eldest daughter (10yrs) as a replacement for some below standard ones. Definately worth the upgrade. The sound alone is brilliant, on line controls work well, they are very comfortable (according to the daughter) and look brilliant. Very happy with them and have a happy daughter so all good :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome headset mic for the price I would love to have given this product a 5 star rating across the board, except that it has the same problem that almost all headsets with a mic have: When you are on the phone, you can't hear your own voice through the headset. You can only hear your voice in your head and you end up speaking a lot more loudly than you need to. For instance, if you are using this headset in the car (hands-free), it would be most advantageous to be able to hear more than just your phone conversation, wouldn't you agree? This is annoying to me and I wish that an innovative company like yours would find an innovative way to fix it. Overall sound quality is superb and the bass response is excellent, just as one would expect from a JBL product. I would like to have an inline volume control and a longer connecting cable. There is also a button inline that I can't find any instructions for its use. The durability question is kind of irrelevant, considering that this would be determined over a significant period of time and I have only had it for a few weeks and I haven't used it anywhere but in my home, so I can't rate its durability yet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from pretty good... These are really nice on-ear phones. On the plus side they have good sound, light weight, durability. What was that about the flat cord not tangling? Ha. No. Its like the cord wants to tie itself in knots. After months of use it still does not lay flat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great acoustics I bought these headphones to use with my cell phone to do virtual medical visits. I was concerned that the sound/microphone wouldn't be okay, but it is working great! The only complaints would be they are a bit tight on my head. If I had to wear them for a long period of time, it would make my ears hurt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable price/quality ratio! I bought my pair 4 or 5 months ago and I still get surprised by the sound quality and comfort they provide. Every time I use them I can feel the JBL quality and signature bass, without having paid a fortune. Excellent for use with my smartphone and also as a PC headphone.

Great value Great product. Another great addition to my JBL lineup. I have been using JBL products for 4 decades and have never been disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good sound but can't be repaired Cable is very thin so it easy breaks inside! Tried to fix it which could not be done if the inside wires were not so insane thin. Cable replacement can' be done. (No JBL cable replacements) SAD! The headphone could be used for many more years otherwise :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First glance at the brand new product Greetings, i purchased this via Trendyol from Aztek Teknoloji only two days before. I gotta say that, the product did not seem to be faulty by means of the product itself.(physically). Neither the cable nor the other pieces appeared broken. Stuff feels pretty solid when i put it on. Though, i feel quite disappointed sound quality wise whether i can't ensure the fact that the exact product i purchased is troublesome or it truly produces such sound. By my first time experience, i could easily tell that the bass does neither feel lively nor strong. It is kind of croaky. The clarity of the sound also does not seem that much satisfying. even though the bass felt somewhat alright, trebles and mid range sounded much worse. The loudness of the sound is not sufficient either. I seriously do not know whether the exact product i bought is "sound-wise" problematic/defective or this is how these headphones sound. On the other hand, i could not spot the way the volume is being increased through the remote control. Is it possible? If then, how?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great headphones Great sound, great price. The only downfall is the foam that easily falls off in my son's backpack. They constantly have to re-fit them onto the headset. I'm going to have to purchase a case in order to avoid that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cured my tinnitus Received mine today as a Christmas gift. Used it immediately and was blown away by the bass! The best news however is that it cured my tinnitus!! Well done JBL...At 60 years of age I finally have found true love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I bought these headphones after seeing a segment on the TODAY show. They arrived relatively quickly and were just what I was looking for. Great bass, noise cancelling and all at a discounted price. Love them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, short cord For an inexpensive headphone these sound pretty balanced. Less impressed with the inline remote which does little since it cannot adjust volume. Personally, I could have used a bit more cable length too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was 8Euro used I bought it as refurbished and the connector was a problem, thats not an issue but the right side of the headphone is weaker coz the cable resistance is not got higher.

Product Q&A

Hello! I wonder if it fits on the head of a 10 year old kid?

Asked by: Gabesz
Our JBL Tune 500BT has a headband that can be extended and adjusted to your preference.

How do I mute the mic on my JBL Tune 500 wired headphones? This might be a solution for my problem. When the headphones are plugged into my phone, I can only hear the vocals (while listening to music) when I press and hold down the button on my mic.

Asked by: Marix
Your phone may be using a different standard of TRRS (Mic, Ground, Left, Right). To isolate this, try to connect the headphones with a different phone brand. If your phone has a thick case, you could try to remove it and plug the jack all the way in and observe if the sound will work as normal without pressing the button. If you need more help, please reach out to our Customer Support.
