Customer Reviews for JBL Club Pro+ TWS True Wireless In-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones (Black)
My first impressions were really good as I was opening the packaging, it has a nice little magnetic case and looks very professional, once I picked up the case and opened it I thought it was very satisfying. The case feels very durable and like if I dropped it onto a hard surface it would be just fine. The earbuds themselves fit into my ears perfectly and feel like they're not going to fall out with movement, they also look good, I never really liked how wireless earbuds looked because I thought that they just always looked so bulky.
Once I actually turned on the earbuds to listen to music I was a little bit underwhelmed. I think this is partly because the ONLY times I listen to music are occasionally with good headphones on, or in the car with good speakers. It just didn't sound like the bass was very strong, everything just seemed kind of diluted I guess you could say. When I have my good headphones on and listen to a song that is bass-heavy the headphones will literally shake on my head and it's freaking awesome. I noticed that when there was a lot of bass it seemed like everything else would quiet down like there would be a nice bass drop and then the vocals would be quieter for half a second or so before normalizing. The ANC was honestly meh, I feel like this is partly due to how good the passive noise canceling in so it's definitely hard to notice. You can still hear it cut out certain frequencies, for example, outside my bedroom window is an HVAC machine and when it's running and I turn on the ANC I can no longer hear it. At work there's usually music playing on the PA about 30ish feet from my desk, it's not usually very loud, however, when I turn on the ANC I can hear it get slightly less noticeable, but it's definitely still there.
Once I started messing with the equalizer inside of the JBL app I was absolutely blown away. You can really cater the music exactly to your liking, I personally like a good amount of bass but not too much, and to really hear the vocals, I know nothing about mixing so I just moved things while listening to music and got it to my liking. They sound significantly better now and it's genuinely crazy how easy it is to find something you like.
In case anyone is wondering when looking online trying to figure out if the ANC was active during phone calls, I couldn't find anything. Well, I called my girlfriend while driving home from work and had just one earbud in and I was asking her about how I sounded. She said that it kind of sounds like "I'm in a really big room all by myself" but she also said, "I think the reason you sound so good is that all I can hear is your voice. Does the noise-canceling work on phone calls?" I was low key super happy when she asked me this because I'm a nerd and I got a glimpse at her inner nerd. We went back and forth between me talking and her listening for background noise and she couldn't hear anything. I'm very happy about this feature because my job consists of calling people and talking on the phone pretty much all day every day so being able to vibe to the music and then just take a call without putting on my Bluetooth headset is nice.
Now as I mentioned I have never really used other wireless earbuds or even quality earbuds for that matter, so I can't really compare them to others. I like them, I do not regret buying them, I like how I can use either earbud in mono mode, I like how well it integrates with the Google Assistant on my Pixel, I like how satisfying the case is to me, just opening it and pulling out an earbud makes nut seep out of dick. These were expensive, they're normally $200 and I got them for somewhere between $140 and $160, I don't remember for sure. I wish I got to try the Jabra earbuds that everyone recommends and that are priced pretty reasonably, but I'm happy with my purchase.
TL;DR - I really like the earbuds, but I don't have a good frame of reference. I do not regret buying them and highly enjoy them.
I guess I'm gonna have to eat the $200 on these. JBL is not the company they used to be.
I would have given them Zero stars if I could.
The app is an alright addition to be able to customize the sound profile and controls.
-These buds are unlivable for everyday use. To clarify, when not in use, they will be constantly pairing with my phone and forcing the audio and notification sounds to the buds that are firmly in the case and should be turned off. This happens consistently through the day, and usually the case itself will die within a day or two, then the earbuds will no longer have this problem. So, obviously there is an issue with how the case is made that causes these earbuds to constantly turn on and drain their batteries.
-The audio is quiet. On the old earbuds previuosly mentioned, I would turn the audio to about 75% on the phone, right before the red line for the audio volume warning and they would be fine. On these at max volume, I still find them to be below that comfortable volume.
additional features that allow you to customise them to be suit your experience. From turning off ambient noise to changing the touch button actions on each earphone itself.
A slight issue I found was that on occasion they would disconnect from my phone before immediately reconnecting, causing a momentarily pause to my listening.
Overall sound quality is very good, a nice, crisp sound with a good level of bass, aided by the earphones noise cancelling qualities.
