Best JBL Headphones

JBL has a solid reputation as a manufacturer of high-quality audio products, including headphones. Let’s examine more closely several of the best JBL headphones in different styles for different situations, to help you choose which model is most appropriate for your needs.

Best JBL Headphones

JBL CLUB 950NC Wireless

JBL CLUB 950NC Wireless Review

The best wireless JBL headphones that we’ve tested are the JBL CLUB 950NC. These well-built Bluetooth over-ears have a comfortable, stable fit and a decently versatile overall performance. Their neutral, well-balanced sound profile makes them suitable for listening to a wide range of audio content, though they’re lacking low-bass. If you prefer a different sound, you can use the parametric EQ and presets in the JBL Headphones app to customize their performance. They don’t leak a lot of noise, and their 25-hour continuous battery life makes them suitable for long days on-the-go. Thanks to their ANC feature, they can block out background noise typically found in an office setting, like chatter from other coworkers.

JBL Tune 220TWS

JBL TUNE 220TWS true wireless earphones

Tune 220TWS are true wireless earbuds, with no connecting wire. Internal 22 mAh batteries provide three hours of power. When not in use, they’re stored in the charging case, which also functions as an additional power source, providing 16 additional hours. Weighing just 1.98 ounces (56 g), they’re available in black, blue, green, gray, pink, and white.

Nice and loud…

The 12.5 mm drivers feature JBL Pure Bass sound and offer full-range frequency response of 20 Hz – 20 kHz. With an impedance of only 32 ohms, they’re capable of plenty of volume.

The 220TWS come with Bluetooth 5.0, so they pair to your mobile device faster. Hands-free stereo phone calls are effortless with the built-in on-ear controls. Google Assistant is also supported.

JBL Endurance Sprint Wireless

JBL Endurance SPRINT

The best JBL headphones in the budget category that we’ve tested are the JBL Endurance Sprint. These colorful wireless earbuds have an ear-hook design that feels fairly well-built for their price point. If you enjoy sports, these are a very good option as they have a stable fit and an IPX7 rating for water resistance, although we don’t currently test for it. They’re also among the best-sounding wireless earbuds that we’ve tested, and their well-balanced sound profile is easily suited for a variety of audio genres.

Unfortunately, their in-ear fit may not be the most comfortable for all users, and their touch controls are very sensitive, so registering an accurate command can be difficult. Still, they have a nine-hour battery life that should be enough to get you through your workday, and they can even reduce a good amount of background noise around you. At their price point, these are a pair of wireless in-ears with a decent performance.

JBL Reflect Flow

With no shortage of true wireless sports headphones around, JBL had its work cut out in this popular market. The highly anticipated Reflect Flows don’t disappoint. They deliver a bass-heavy sound that’s ideal for the gym, especially if you don’t want to resort to massive cans (which, if you’re moving a lot, many people won’t).

Battery life is impressive too, standing at 10 hours, or 30 hours with the case. The finish started to rub off after only a few days of testing – which isn’t ideal – but otherwise, they impress us. Sound-wise, they’re crisp with plenty of detail, and they time very well indeed. Bass is suitably cavernous, while the instruments sound distinct no matter how complex tracks become. That makes them one of the best cheap true wireless earbuds out there.



These on-ears offer wireless Bluetooth connectivity, noise-cancelling and a double-figure battery life. Par for the course for premium on-ears, you might think, but one glance at the price and you’ll do a double-take.

They certainly look very appealing, although, again, the finish is not quite as hardwearing as we would like, Still, as compromises go, it’s preferable to sacrificing sound quality. And it seems JBL agrees. Bass is punchy and tight, with plenty of weight and power. It lends low frequencies a depth and heft that’s not matched by many headphones in this price bracket.

Dynamic shifts are handled with aplomb, while they sound expressive and confident through the whole frequency range. The one snag is that the bass can at times be a little overbearing.
