Product Summary

With a lightweight design, comfort-fit headband, and soft ear cushions, the JBL 650BTNC over-ear headphones offer a lot of great qualities for the price point. 

The headphones are compatible with both iOS and Android, so you can use Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, or Siri while using them. They also offer a multi-port connection so that you can switch from one Bluetooth device to another without interruption. 

There were many customers that felt the active noise canceling (ANC) was very effective, even being able to use them while mowing lawns and still being able to listen to their music. With the ability to manage calls through the buttons on the headphones, you don’t even have to get your phone out to answer. 

You can also download the My JBL Headphones App and set the sound preferences exactly how you want them, giving a more personalized sound to your favorite music. 

With an advertised 30 hours of sound when not using the ANC feature and 20 hours while using the feature, you can listen through these all day if you want to. A quick 15-minute charge can also give you an additional two hours of listening time.

      These might not be the fanciest or most expensive headphones on the market, but they offer a lot of great qualities for the average person looking for something they can use on a daily basis. It is also a nice bonus to use the audio cord in case you have forgotten to charge your headphones but still want to use them. If you struggle with earbuds and prefer a style that goes over the ears, this could be an excellent choice.
