In addition to their consumer audio pedigree, JBL has been a leader in live sound for decades. When they designed their Synchros S700 headphones, they wanted to deliver as much of that "in the club" listening experience as possible. They developed LiveStage™ digital signal processing to offer a unique headphone experience. LiveStage moves the soundstage forward to simulate a concert or speaker-listening experience. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the Synchros S700 headphones deliver up to 28 hours of LiveStage-activated listening with a single charge using the included USB cable. What happens if your battery runs down? You keep listening. The passive listening option means your music will still sound rich and detailed even without LiveStage processing.
Remote cables for Apple® and Android™
If you have an iPhone® or other Apple device, you're probably used to seeing headphones with in-line remotes and microphones that work with these products. The Synchros S700 is no exception. But JBL didn't leave Android users out of the mix. These headphones come with a second remote cable for use with compatible Android devices. Both cables allow you to take calls with a smartphone as well as control playback and volume when listening to music. The miniplug connection in the left earcup makes it easy to swap out one for the other.
The Synchros S700s will attract attention with their pro-style looks. But these headphones go beyond mere fashion. With an aluminum frame, sturdy headband, and leather earpads, these 'phones are built to last. They also offer enough comfort to keep you listening, whether you're working on a home recording project or just kicking back enjoying your favorite tunes. With JBL's pedigree for both live sound and home audio, these headphones are great for the studio or the living room.
