Our take on the JBL Synchros S300a

by David Brown
JBL

Wake up your music

Need to get a little more life out of your favorite songs? Then plug the JBL Synchros S300a headphones into your smartphone or music player. Pop these smartly styled cans on your ears and even the same old songs will sound new and fresh. JBL knows more than a few things about sound, applying many years' experience in live sound and speakers to these cool-looking headphones. High-end clarity is paired with JBL's PureBass technology for rich low-frequency response.

Universal remote and microphone

The Synchros S300a headphones are a perfect match for a wide variety of smartphones. There's an in-line remote control with a built-in microphone that's compatible with the iPhone® as well as Android™ and Windows® devices. Play and pause tunes, answer calls, and even control volume with select phones.

Nice looks, built to last

At first glance, the Synchros S300a may look like around-the-ear headphones. But they actually rest against your ears. Those large leather ear cushions provide plenty of comfort to keep you listening. The headband is stainless steel, adding durability to these headphones' list of attributes.
