JBL Live 500BT Wireless

Unfortunately, this model doesn’t have active noise cancelling (ANC), which means they won’t be ideal for commuting. For similar noise cancelling headphones, look at the higher-end JBL Live 650BTNC. On the upside, the Live 500BT have a good companion app that gives you access to a full parametric EQ, which allows you to customize their sound to your liking

JBL Live 500BT Review

40 BT. But if it's big bass you're after, JBL delivers. The JBL Live 500BT wireless headphones support Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control and deliver powerful, bass-forward audio

My Favorite Headphones

These are by far my favorite headphones to date. I’m at my computer for hours daily either gaming or simply watching entertainment on the internet and I’ve been through countless headphones with none of them fitting the needs I have. I need headphones that are comfortable that don’t hurt my ears, no...

Premium headphones at a budget

The JBL Live 500BT is one of the best headphones out there right now for their price range. From the moment you unbox them you feel like you are getting a premium experience. JBL has one of the best unboxing presentation. The headphones look amazing and the blue that I received from the JBL backstag...

nice product but BT just not loud enough

These are nice headphones, especially the EQ adjustments on the app. However, the inherent loss of sound in bluetooth made them impractical for me. When I wanna turn up the volume and BASS, they come up short; as have countless others I have tried from Sony, Bose, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, etc. Un...

Got these headphones about two weeks ago and love them so far. Bluetooth works very well with my phone but has trouble connecting to my Dell laptop. Amazing battery life and very user-friendly.

Nice, but not nice :(

I bought these headphones (Blue) for my son so he could take them on a trip. They arrived the day before the trip, and I was a little hesitant because the picture on the box what white (white wasn't even available for purchase). The label on the packaging definitely says "Headphone - Blue"... "NewIt...

Amazing Audio!

Got a good 2 weeks to listen to this new set of headphones. The sound is very clear and the bass is just enough for any type of genre. The JBL app is a good way to adjust your sound and it's simple to use. Both Alexa and Google Assistant are very responsive. The noice canceling is great since for th...

Prolific battery life, enhanced bass & nice features

I needed a new pair of over the ear headphones and I’m glad I purchased these JBL 500 bt’s. The battery life and bass are improvements over the e55bt models.
