CES 2021: JBL expands Live series with three new headphones
JBL unveiled new audio products at the annual CES. The subsidiary of Harman Karton used the technology trade show to present the new additions to its Live series. The US company presented three new headphones at the online trade show, all of which are to be launched in the spring of this year. Here, there is something for everyone.
Somewhat different presentation
In the wake of the Corona crisis, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year can also only take place in a pandemic-compliant manner. Accordingly, the new presentations between January 11 and 14 will generally take place via the World Wide Web. Despite modified show conditions, manufacturers are offering some exciting new products. This is also the case for JBL. The US company could present three new pairs of headphones to its fans.
JBL Live Pro+
First up are the JBL Live Pro+. The True Wireless In Ears offer adaptive noise cancellation and combine it with Smart Ambient. This is supposed to be able to muffle annoying background noise, but at the same time good conversations are possible. Conveniently, the JBL Live Pro+ come with a convenient voice control. The charging option is also praiseworthy.
As has become the norm, the headphones themselves are charged via charging box. This, in turn, can be charged wirelessly via Qi. Alternatively, a classic charge via USB-C cable is no problem. The headphones are supposed to last for seven hours. We will know whether JBL can keep its promises in April. Then the sale of the small In Ears is to start at a RRP of 180 euros.
The new headphones of the Live series
But JBL has not only presented the small In Ears. On top of that, a new Over Ear as well as a new On Ear headphone will be launched this year. The JBL Live 660NC is a headphone that completely encloses the ear cups (Over Ear).
Like the little Live Pro+, the big brother also offers adaptive noise cancellation along with Smart Ambient. The possibility of being able to control the headphones via voice command is also congruent. The option of multiple connections also sounds practical. This has always worked well for JBL. The battery life sounds particularly impressive. Thus, you should be able to enjoy music for a total of 50 hours. A quick-charge function is also on board. The headphones should only need ten minutes for this. As with the In Ears, JBL also sets an MSRP of just under 180 Euros. Last but not least, the company also unveiled a pair of ear-mounted headphones (On Ears).
The JBL Live 460NC offer all the features and specs of the circumaural 660NC. However, the price turns out to be significantly lower with an MSRP of just under 130 Euros. The JBL Live 660NC as well as the JBL Live 460NC are expected to launch a month before the In Ears.
