The cure for a common problem

JBL Synchros E50BT wireless headphones

Connect the Synchros E50BT headphones to your smartphone wirelessly via Bluetooth and control music and calls with the earcup buttons (shown in Blue).

It's happened to all of us. You're lost in your music when, suddenly, you're jolted as you feel your headphones pull at your head and your music suddenly stops. You've accidentally pulled the headphone cable out of your smartphone. There are two known cures for this problem: be more careful, or get a pair of wireless headphones like the JBL Synchros E50BT. These headphones have Bluetooth built in, so they can connect wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet. Lose the cable and use the earcup controls to play and pause music, adjust the volume, or even take a hands-free call with the built-in microphone.

Cleverly styled and well built, the Synchros E50BT headphones offer JBL's legendary sound, with large 50mm drivers producing plenty of clear detail and PureBass technology bringing the low frequencies to life. The over-the-ear design helps ensure outside noise stays out of your headphones, while keeping your music inside so it doesn't bother others at home or in the office. The earcups swivel and fold for easy storage when they're not in use.

Wireless or wired listening

The Synchros E50BT run on a built-in rechargeable battery, which provides up to 18 hours of use. If your battery runs down, you won't be stuck without music. Simply connect the included headphone cable and keep listening in wired mode. Then, use your computer or a USB AC charger to get your headphones charged up for more wireless use.

Share a song wirelessly

One pair of E50BT headphones is cool. Two pairs can do something really cool. You can stream music to another pair of headphones wirelessly using JBL's ShareMe™ technology. This allows two people to listen to the same song from the same source at the same time. You can share music with any two pairs of ShareMe compatible headphones.

Better sound intensity and base than JBL ebt 40 model

Pros: As above

Cons: Slightly bulky; not as much noise reduction as sound canceling technology...but expected such.

Good product for the money that's a no brainer. They don't really have the uhhhhh I had hoped for that JBL has produced for me I ln the past but I guess I should have bought the more expensive ones I guess. We really bought a pair of them for the BT pairing option for traveling. Works just like the show on the crutchfield website. Great idea with that video by the way, keep it up!! Overall I am satisfied with my purchase. Would I buy them again if these get lost, YES.

Pros: Look nice Block sound when actively listening Easy using

Cons: Maybe it's just me I have large ears but these don't really do over my ears. They more sandwich them onto my head.

Very good headphones for the money. The build quality is good, the earcups a little uncomfortable at first till there are broke in, sound quality is very detailed, good bass that's not taking over the music, and best of all it's wireless!

Pros: Build quality, sound, and wireless.

Cons: A little uncomfortable at first till there are broke in.

Pros: Sounds great.

Cons: Ear muffins could be bigger. Or if I only had smaller ears. Could offer cup or ear sizes.

I bought these for my daughter initially for road trips. With pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, etc. the cord of my Bose was constantly getting tangled and yanked on. The bluetooth looked to be a great option and proved to be a great choice. Surprisingly, the sound quality of the JBL's are outstanding, the design fits my daughter perfectly (although the ear cups are a bit shallow for me), and the BT range is fantastic (greater than any other BT device I own). It is also nice to have the cord as a back up for when the battery dies. My only complaint would be it does not come with a case.

Pros: Great sound quality, Good fit, and excellent BT range

Cons: Does not come with a case. BT does not turn off with the synced device, you must manually turn them off or the battery dies quickly.

Nice bang for your buck I suppose

I just really like the product. I needed something without wires for talking in the phone but still sounded good and other people could still hear me in my loud semi truck. The Syncros does just that.

Pros: Perfect for wireless calling

Cons: Listening to music is fine but I wish it had more base and i wish it didn't have a limiter on how high the volume can go. That being said it is still loud enough and JBL is saving my hearing.

Great value.

Wow! I love a quality sound, especially a good bass and this has it!! I got it for my grandson thinking he might not be happy because it isn't Beats, but he is really happy with them!!! I don't need wireless because I have great ear buds but I'm considering getting another pair for myself because the sound is better than my buds. They say wireless isn't as good but I'm telling you, this is great!!

Pros: Comfortable, great bass, clean clear tone quality, easy to use, biggest bang for the buck!!

Cons: Doesn't shut out noise completely but very good

Cool that you get to sync it to another headset. Quality is as good as the higher priced headphones but more comfortable and has added features those don't.

Great pair of bluetooth headphones. Sound quality is excellent. They are a little uncomfortable for me after about an hour or so of listening. Well built, music and movies however have never sounded better or clearer.

Pros: Excellent sound with cool looks

Cons: Uncomfortable on the top of my head and at the ears.

I've been using it with several devices ( Computer, phone and Ipod) they are definitely worth the money compared to it's counterparts and you won't be paying high $$$$ for these as you would be for the others.

I am very impressed withe these headphones. I have used Beats Solo and Monster, these are far superior to both. The sound quality is excellent and for non noise canceling headphones they sure do cancel out just about everything. I bought these to use while mowing my fields and was quite surprised when I could barely hear my thirty hp diesel tractor. The volume level is very good and the fit on my big head and ears was surprisingly comfortable even after 8 hours of mowing. The Bluetooth works easily and has a very good range. Now we just need to see how they will hold up long term.

Pros: Very comfortable Very good at canceling noise even though they are not noise canceling headphones

Cons: Have not found one yet!

Features

Overview: The JBL Synchros E50BT Bluetooth headphones offer convenience and performance in one stylish and comfortable package. With ShareMe technology, you can even share your experience with another set of headphones. The E50BTs have a built-in Lithium-ion rechargeable battery that provides all day music playback capability. When the battery becomes exhausted, you can plug in the supplied auxiliary cable and continue listening.

Drivers: The Synchros E50BT over-the-ear headphones feature large 50mm advanced drivers with PureBass performance in a lightweight closed design. The 32-ohm drivers give you crystal-clear stereo for enjoying your music or carrying on a phone conversation.
