Riding on the subway, hanging at the coffee shop, or working around the house — these can all be great times to get deeper into your favorite music playlist or audiobook, provided you can tune out distractions.

Bluetooth means you can ditch the cord, and active noise-canceling means you can ditch the rumble of the subway car or the chatter of your fellow patrons.

JBL E65BTNC reviews
I purchased this headphone to replace my 5 year old model JBL E50 BT. The E50's were showing their age (ear pads wearing out), and one earphone broke at the stem connection, which made them unusable. I was hoping to see a more sturdy connection with the E65's, but it looks similarly flimsy. Time will tell. The sound quality and noise cancelling ability of the E65 is commendable. I wasn't sure about getting the upgrade to NC, but I spoke to a Crutchfield Adviser and she assured me it was worth it - she was correct! The instructions are nothing short of anemic. They cover 50 languages in one tiny pamphlet (get out your magnifying glass), and use little emoji -type characters (in lieu of words) to spell out headphone functions. Eventually, it was apparent what they were trying to convey, but it took some effort. JBL- why not just spell out the headphone functions?
Pros: sound quality noise cancelling comfortable
Cons: User manual really sucks

I have a few headphones a few AKGs and an Astro A10 gaming headset which is what I currently use now when listening to my music because it is so good. *Tested with Hi-fi songs no less than 320 kbits/s I bought these JBLs because I wanted something wireless. So far After about an hour of total listening the sound quality is just like my astro gaming a10 headphones- a natural soundstage that allows you to hear lots of detail the way the artist intended. After listening to a variety of genres to remain fair, these headphones are a bit heavy on the treble side so much that treble laden tracks tend to be just a tad tiresome to listen too, if you ever had textile or other "hard material" tweeters in your car this is kind of what it is like. Sound quality overall is decent for the price I paid on black friday sale. If i paid the regular price I would of been slightly dissapointed. 3.5 stars here. The build quality is just ok. Plastic buttons feel on the cheap side and not on par with the price tag. The leather cups are comfortable and supple, overall 3 stars for build quality. Noise canceling I haven't tested much at all but if you are expecting to hop on a plane and turn the noise canceling on and enjoy sleep you will be severely dissapointed. Bose quiet comfort is my benchmark here (which is pretty high) and these come nowhere close, not that I'm expecting it to for the price but alas. Overall this feature quality is right on par with others at thi
Pros: Easy conectivity
Cons: Harsh treble at times
