Sound quality & practice
The sound quality of the JBL Live 300 TWS is impressive. The sound image is characterized in particular by the precise, voluminous bass; and the headphones also perform very well in the middle and higher frequency ranges. The sound is detailed and, in our opinion, definitely worth the price.
The JBL Live 300 TWS deliver a similarly positive picture in terms of usability. The headphones are still comfortable after a long period of wear and they fit tightly enough for sports. The operation is also good: it is done via the touch surfaces on the outside of the headphones, which convert the typing and wiping movements very reliably.
The headphones only get some of their functions from the corresponding app, which is clearly laid out and allows a more extensive configuration. There you can, for example, activate the automatic pause or switch off and the TalkThru and Ambient Aware modes. Both modes can be activated after an initial configuration, but also by wiping the headphones.
The Ambient Aware mode uses the microphones in the headphones to record the outside world and feed it directly into the headphones. This allows you to stay in the action while listening to music without losing too much of the sound quality. We find this mode very useful and successful – especially for conversations.
The TalkThru mode, which also records the outside world, goes in exactly the same direction. At the same time, it pauses the music so that you can talk undisturbed. This mode works just as well, but you can hear a little background noise due to the microphone recording.
In terms of battery life, the Live 300 TWS does quite well, but they are far from setting new standards. We ran it with a somewhat above average volume, which we find unpleasant for continuous use – the measured battery life should be a minimum value for real use.
With continuous music playback, the headphones achieved a battery life of about four and a half hours per charge with these settings, which could be increased to a total of 17.5 hours with the charging case. Unless you regularly take long trips without music breaks, the battery life of the JBL Live 300 TWS should therefore be sufficient for most situations.
