Over-ear wireless Bluetooth® noise-canceling headphones (Black)
Our take on the JBL E65BTNC by Crutchfield's James Ralston
Tune out distractions at home or on the go
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. That's where JBL's E65BTNC wireless headphones come in. 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. These headphones feature large 40mm drivers for rich sound.
Long-lasting battery life
The built-in rechargeable battery gives you up to 15 hours of playback when using Bluetooth and noise-canceling. Or using Bluetooth only, you get up to 24 hours between charges. If you ever run out of battery power when you're on the go, the included 3.5mm headphone cord lets you listen in "passive" mode for as long as you want.

Active noise canceling lets you enjoy your music without the distraction of ambient noise. The E65BTNC also comes with a USB charging cable.
Drivers: The headphones are equipped with 40mm dynamic drivers to give you clear highs and powerful bass. The drivers are housed in sleek, stylish ear cups that sit comfortably over your ears. The fabric-covered headband adjusts for a perfect fit.
