Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped functioning in two weeks While they were working I was impressed with how they performed for their cost, sadly however the headphones stopped working shortly after. The left headphone completely stopped functioning and the right one was noticeably distorted. The headphones stayed within my home and were only used a handful of times. I own other JBL products and they function flawlessly. I am upset that I now have to shell more money out of pocket for what has to be a manufacturing flaw. Mine may just be an exception as others have commented on how much they enjoy them, but I cannot enjoy something that doesn't work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For my daughter I've not used them myself as they were bought for my daughter. She loves the colour and apparently they work pretty well because she ignores me far more now even if I scream her name up the stairs to tell her something delicious for tea is waiting on the table for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pair Of Headphones I Ever Bought If the title doesn't sum it up, I don't know what does. As an avid music listener, it was important to have headphones that deliver a quality listening experience, and the Tune 500 did not disappoint. Although comfort does wain after prolonged use, this is probably due to the newness of the product and will wear to a comfortable fit overtime. Overall I can't fault this product, for the price, you're getting a well built pair of headphones with great sound quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped Working after 7 days Bought these headphones for my husband to wear while at work. They were great until the 7th day and then they were dead. Mailed them back, waiting on a refund. I guess I have to spend a small fortune for good headphones, which I am not about to do.

Product Q&A

I've tested these headphones myself on PS4 and mic works as well as sound, but I was wondering if it's compatible with PC and communications software (Skype, Discord) with both sound and mic?

Asked by: Jayjay89
This headset is definitely compatible with any audio device, including PC, that has a 3.5mm output jack plugged into a splitter that separates the mic input from the speaker output. I can make and receive phone calls directly from my computer using this headset. You just need to get a splitter.

Can the T500 wired-on be used on a laptop by plugging into the 3.5mm output audio socket for conference calls (e.g. via skype) using the in-built microphone to speak (i.e. like a headset with a separate microphone attachment)?

Asked by: oavio
It should be a 3.5mm audio input socket on your laptop. If your laptop uses a separate mic and sound input, you need to get a splitter that would split the 4pin 3.5mm jack of your JBL T500 into two 3.5mm jacks.

Hello, is the JBL T500 a CTIA or OMPT standard? I need to buy a splitter (mic/headph) to use it in my PC and need that specification. Thank you!

Asked by: Alequedateencasa
All of our JBL headphones use CTIA standards.

Trying to decide between these & the kid version...can you adjust the volume on these for kids?  And are the ear cushions a different size than the kids?  My son is 7.  He complains about other earphones hurting the outside of his ears.  Thanks!

Asked by: Kayferg
The Tune 500 doesn't have volume controls on the wired version. Your kid may need an Over-ear headphones so his ears won't hurt from the headphones.

Can the cord be changed? I am thinking of getting these headphones but I have always had problems with aux cords dying on me so I am wondering if it's possible to change out the one on these.

Would these headphones work for recording podcasts? 

Asked by: Aprilr23
Our JBL Tune 500 headphones can certainly make decent recording but not high enough to be considered profession equipment. We highly suggest checking out professional headphones for podcast recording.

Hi! Could you please tell me what is the maximum input power (mW) on this model? Thanks!

Asked by: JackDaniels
JBL tune 500 has built-in 32mm drivers. You may use any micro-USB cable and adapter that has 5V 2.3A to charge the headphones.
