Decent headphones, Very uncomfortable
I was very disappointed by these. Sound quality was good, similar to other JBL (great midtones, weaker bass), but I was disappointed by a couple things. First thing I noticed is that the joints are made of plastic - not really what I expected from headphones over $100. Second, these HURT. They were way too tight even after adjusting them - and I have a pretty small face! I'm a small female so I did not expect any headphones to be too tight for me. The sides of the earpieces pressed into my jawbones and I would develop a blistering headache after wearing them for an hour or so. I ended up trading these in for the Everest headphones which I love. The extra $50 gets you higher quality material and way more comfort.

Some of the best headphones I've had!
Got these headphones about two weeks ago and love them so far. Bluetooth works very well with my phone but has trouble connecting to my Dell laptop. Amazing battery life and very user-friendly. Sound quality is amazing and they are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Definitely worth the investment!

Does what I need it to do
I needed a way to watch movies late at night without disturbing my neighbors. Th 500BT does that. The stereo effect is quite good. If the source material was well recorded it makes me feel that I am immersed in the action.

Disappointed
I literally just got these thinking it would be better than my cowin, and since I already have jbl speakers which I love. This headset for me is a disappointment. Its not even loud, I got mine with a little rip. It keep malfunctioning meaning, the volume keeps going mad low for no reason and turning off. So complicated I just want to listen to my music and I need more volume!

Not hood sound quality
Not recommended. Not good quality of material, sound. It’s small for ear and pressuring around the ear, cheap in general. It’s the same quality as 30$ unbranded headphones on ebay.

Great sounds but problematic
Bought these and loved them straight away, but...
The reason I bought them was for the Google assistant and guess what, it is patchy at best, then it just plain won't respond to any voice commands so pointless. Then for no reason it now randomly powers off and I have to turn it back on again only to await it powering down...

If they sort the problems I would rate 4/5 but as the assistant was the only reason I bought it I'm less than impressed. Sorry guys.

BT connects to 2 devices, but the audio glitches.
I tried my Sony WH-1000X M3 which only allow 1 device, they hardly ever glitch. But these JBLs glitch every minute, it seems to be most problematic at the start of each song.
For me it seems like a buffering issue, but could very well be a BT signal issue.
And while I was typing this just now they just shut down for no reason, as if they had not sensed any music, so I have now disabled the Auto-off Timer.

So I am going to put these in a drawer
