On cold winter days when I have to go out, I need to keep my ears covered. If I can cover them up with some nice headphones, then even better. These wireless JBL headphones are big enough to protect my ears from chill February winds and keep wires out of my way.
The JBL E50BT Bluetooth over-the-ear headphones sport 50mm drivers designed to produce extra bass and a large soundstage with a frequency response of 20Hz – 22kHz . For wire-free use, the E50BT headphones use Bluetooth, which connects to any smartphone or tablet. The built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery can drive you music for up to 18 hours, which, for air travelers, will cover almost anywhere they want to go. For those long listening sessions, the headphones are equipped with soft leather-like ear cups (which provide some noise isolation, but these aren’t noise cancelling headphones) and flexible hinges. When the battery runs out, you’re not stuck having to listen to your own breathing. Just plug in the supplied headphone cable and turn them into passive headphones.
These JBL headphones include a built-in microphone, playback and volume controls on the left earpiece, so you can take an receive phone calls on them too when you’re connected to your phone via Bluetooth. A technology JBL calls echo-cancellation helps to keep those calls clear sounding.
If you want to share your listening with someone nearby, these JBL headphones include a feature called ShareMe. What ShareMe does is allow you to stream your music to another set of ShareMe-enabled headphones, so two people can listen wirelessly from one device.
The JBL E50BT headphones come with a USB charging cable and a cable for non-wireless listening. You can get a pair for $150.
