Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome features and I love the color Absolutely awesome sound extremely comfortable to the ears even after 4 hours they did not hurt my ears you don't even feel them

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One side goes out within months I have gone through two pairs in less than a year and both times one side of the headphones just stop working in Bluetooth mode and wired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought refurbished but good quality Good quality, excellent sound. I can't tell that I bought a refurbished pair. I got an excellent deal on them. The only issue I have with these is that they're a little too big for my lady head. I have to wear a small hair clip on the top of my head to keep them from sliding when I lay down to bench press.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So many technical issues I bought these headphones brand new last year and they are the worst headphones I've ever had. When riding in a car or during take off and landing in a plane there is HORRIBLE crackling and hissing, it actually hurts my ears. Also there's no way I can run or do any cardio with them on at all, they hiss and crackle. The worst is how three times now when I'm on the plane when I have them turned on, and I go to take them off to talk to the flight attendant, and it makes this awful "mic drop" screeching sound the entire plane can hear out of the left side. So embarrassing and scares everyone on board. Will never buy these or get the replaced again. The pros definitely don't outweigh the cons but they are extremely comfortable especially on long-haul international flights and the sound quality is great. Can't hear the plane or the screaming baby next to you so the noise cancelling is good too. Still, don't buy them, BUYERS BEWARE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good headphones but basically very buggy bluetooth I have had the following issues, mostly related to Bluetooth - if I get a call while listening to music I cannot hear the person and they cannot hear me. I need to switch off HD Audio and back on, or turn the headphones off and on several times. - When connecting to the PC it sometimes comes up as "Connected Voice" and sometimes "Connected, voice, music". Either way it shows up as being a sound device and I can select it but I get no sound, I have to disconnect and reconnect up to 10 times in order to get sound. This is an issue for voice and music. I've had these for 10 months and used with many different devices and all the same issues. Basically they are buggy and difficult to get working Other issues I have - The buttons are absolutely useless. The design of them makes them impossible to find the right button with feel - Sometimes they seem to crash and just power off and sometimes on again. Ironically this fault sometimes fixes the other faults temporarily:-) - The volume isn't that loud, quite often I have them on full which is pretty loud but I would have thought it would go higher.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed These were purchased as a gift for me because I love headgear. After about 3 months or so the left earpad has so much static coming through it that it makes listening to even video games pointless. This is my 2nd pair of JBL and I really like the brand but I am disappointed in this purchased by a family member because now I am hearing more static than music. If you are considering these keep in mind they may break your heart sooner than you think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly good I've tried / purchased the top of line Bose and Sony NC headphones... Bose and Sony both had excellent acoustics but we're hollow on the low end. Construction was excellent or good /respectively. The JBL Everest Elite 750 NC are every bit the same. NC performance is as good but slightly different. Not worse or superior. Build ... Sony were slightly off but near 97% comparable. The JBLs fit well with perfect perimeter pressure and weight/bulk. Critically, JBL boasts tighter more powerful bass. I seem to FEEL more low end pressure well in excess of Bose or a distant Sony performance. In my profile of demand JBL wins easily with an edgy SQ, matching performance in build and acoustics combined with lower actual cost! Five stars easily! I might add I like the amplified mode ... However... We bought two sets and my daughter complianed one set has a faint humming in the background when sync'd on BT. I only heard it in silent transitions and judged it insignificant. So she uses the perfect set and I'm fine with the near impossible to hear humm with age 50+ ears. Final word... I've got a pair of iconic JBL 100 studio monitor (not true 4311 monitors) refurbished with factory original foam surrounds. So yeah... I'm partial to the JBL mix of acoustic character. Actually the Bose and Sony had unacceptable bass performance... JBLs were like the 3 bears with Goldilocks where the porridge was "just right"... Yeah... JBLs were perfect for acoustics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality and features! I have always been a fan of JBL's bluetooth speakers (I own both the Flip 4 and Charge 3) so I decided to try these out. Ever since I put these on I have absolutely loved the sound quality and the fact that they come with an EQ in the very handy app makes them even better. Noise cancelling seems to work really well for me and I am impressed so far. I could not belive how much bass these have! As they come they are a little low-end/bass heavy and sound just a tad muffled but, with a few tweaks of the EQ I was able to drop the bass a little and crank up the high end to where they sounded very crisp and clear (which I prefer). App is very simple and easy to use but still packed with features. Overall I love these and will continue to support them by buying their products! Thanks again JBL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones I have loved them so much even thought a few little minor things can be annoying if you want a pretty solid pair of headphones buy these over beats any day. And on top of all that they have the best customer support under the sun.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great headphones but needs some issues to be fixed I love these headphones. The sound is great, they are very comfortable, and the noise canceling works well. However, this is my fourth pair now and they ALL have had the same issue. The issue is when at a certain point, one side of the headphone makes crackling noises and on my pair right now, the right side of the headphones stopped working. The right side is working but the music is distorted and it cuts out. The replacement issue can be fixed too. When I got my second pair, they were broken... JBL please fix these issues. I love your products but some of the issues are heartbreaking..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea bad quality I got this product as a replacement for my everest elite 700 sound fine at first but got worse and worse specialy with alot ambient noise specially when its windy its lightweight at times felt flimsy and not even a year. This one broke too same problem as the first lost sound on the left speaker and wouldnt charge or connect anymore not a good sucessor at all and a really not recommended for working. Out or walking out in a hot sweaty day not at all

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Failed at a year (but great when working) For starters, I really love these headphones. I've also never paid so much for a pair. They're comfortable, the noise canceling works well, and the sound is clear. However, at exactly 1 year the left speaker is failing. I crackles and hisses at me no matter what's being played (or not). It's disappointing. I've sent in a trouble ticket but I fear having just crossed over the year mark I'll be out of luck. I've seen another review talking about this same problem so I have JBL can get it fixed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and excellent sound. Very pleased with almost everything about these headphones. First, they're definitely the best I've owned (I'm not a big audiophile admittedly though). Great sound, great comfort. Two criticisms. First, control buttons are not easy to access without a little bit of probing with your finger. Two, often the bluetooth connection will suddenly cut out and it will take a minute or so before it reconnects. Happens mostly when I am connected to my laptop. Would easily get a 5 rating if these two items were better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Purchased on November of 2018 (Windows 10 Problem) I've got 750NC on November of 2018. This headphone has been in the market for almost over a year now, so I figured problems would have been resolved with updates. Here are list of problems (I am not only a consumer, but also a commercial vendor of JBL products). I use this headphone on following devices: 1. PC - Dell 8930 SE i7-8700K / BT4.1 / Killer Wireless-AC (this is the latest model from Dell) 2. iPhone 7 3. iPad 4 / 5 Here are the list of problems: 1. with Apple devices - bluetooth connection skips after about 15~20 min of connection. It was discovered that problem subsides after turning off Adaptive Noise Cancelling using the app. With Adaptive Noise Cancelling on, static may be present. Problem is the same with BOTH iPhone and iPads - will be testing on iPhone X later this month if result is the same. . 2. with Windows 10 PC - a major problem here. (Tested on PC - Dell 8930 SE i7-8700K / BT4.1 / Killer Wireless-AC with Nvidia feature turned off). Windows does recognize JBL Elite 750NC, and connects it. HOWEVER, error occurs if your PC recognizes it has "HEADSET" vs "HEADPHONE". Initially, it will try to play as "Headset" - but this is will be only with a single channel - where as HEADPHONE will try to play with 2 Ch at 44100 HZ only. That is default Windows format which most of PC users will have. Using Enhancements such as bass boost or virtualization will cause 750NC to drop during the game or music plays. I've test this unit heavily on WoT/WoWS/LoL/BF1 and result is the same - DO NOT USE Windows built in enhancement feature. It is also good to note that there was no way to turn off Adaptive Noise Cancelling feature from PC or Manually when connected to PC. 3. Buttons & Control unit - JBL did NOT think this through. It is cumbersome and very badly designed. Ergonomics of control is very badly designed - to the point of frustration by users. Please look at what SONY did...they've done much better job. 4. App - basic and rudimentary. Simple and customization option is nice too. 5. Manual - JBL did half-as* job on this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only wish they had a better look i only bought these a week ago but i already know i'm gonna enjoy them for a long time i only wish they had a better look otherwise they are the best headphones I've ever had. ALSO the USB side of the charging cord is brilliant, you don't have too cheek witch way to plug it in it will work this way or that and that in itself made me nut, witch kinda sucks cuz its still no nut November, but it was worth it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible sound I bought this a couple months ago with the intention to wear them when I workout. When I listen it sounds like two blown speakers struggling. This is very disappointing especially since I paid $300 for them. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible and short lived products. I have had these for about a year and I have returned them once. The same issue I had with them has came back and its the same exact problem. The noise canceling fails and causes the speaker in one ear to sound crackled. Which means they are a failed product. I honestly rarely even use them on battery or even the noise canceling part. So why would it fail so fast when its rarely used? JBL is just a terrible product it seems. I have owned a couple of their other products and I can't stand these issues anymore, not for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I've had my Everest Elite750NC for almost a week now. I've been wearing em everyday and playing with the features. The sound quality is amazing as always with JBL. Super comfortable. My only complaint is that the buttons are not well defined so it takes muscle memory & im still hitting the wrong buttons. But other then that they are super comfy, great sound & the carrying case is probably one of the best.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Issues While I don't write reviews often, especially for products that have lots of reviews already, this one I thought deserved a review. The left speaker has been cutting out shortly after purchase, on every replacement I have received. I am grateful for these factory replacements, I just wish i didn't have to go through the trouble of getting a replacement ordered. I will now be receiving my 4TH REPLACEMENT. My third replacement lasted 90 minutes before cutting out. These are not exposed to water, they are used in a low moisture environment, in an office. I really hope by now the quality department is taking this issue seriously, because I am just about losing faith in this brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very complete I bought these headphones like a week ago and I think that is a very good product with good sound, anc, bluetooth, accessories etc. I would like a little bit more battery because generally doesn't touch the 15 hours, but overall it's a good product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this headphones a little more than a year ago. After 3 months of use, the headband began to crack. Then, the ear cushions got detached from the inside and then the outside. After some time, the plastic part that keeps the headphones to the headband, broke. Now they are just hanging by the cables. These are the second headphones I bought from JBL. The first ones also had very bad quality. I hoped that the Everest, for the price, should had a better materials and quality. I wish I could have my money back. I'll never going to buy anything else from this brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but bad noise cancellation I just brought it 10 days ago, it is good while not using noise cancellation. but when I use it some bad noise is up in my left ear that makes me uncomfortable (the noise appears when I slightly move my head or the bus/train stops... in any movement of the headset). I could be a perfect product if the ANC was good
Date published: 2018-07-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great while THEY lasted I have bought 2 pairs and on one the right speaker blew and the other one the left side blew. They sound amazing but speakers blow very easily when listening to bass heavy songs

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Noise Cancellation The noise cancellation feature works poorly - if at all. When outdoors, any breeze is magnified. When indoors, I can still hear talking and other sounds in. the room.
Date published: 2018-06-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great if they would connect The horrible connectivity is driving me insane. I have to unpair and re-pair to my computer 3-5 times a day. Using the bluetooth and noise cancelling yields an annoying high pitch sound which I´ll probably stop hearing sometime.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Confused I got these as a replacement for my 710's, I have owned other Jbl everest headphones, 2 pair of 300's & the 710's, that I went out my way to get because I loved the 300's but these 750's I really hate to say this but there garbage, if you used that wired, they are OK at best but wireless, they are useless, I don't need to go into details, just read the rest of the reviews & I had the same experience as everyone else, I just can't believe jbl would let such a defective product slide though the cracks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great headphones, however.... I do love these headphones. The sound stage is awesome and the features are great. I do need to bring to the attention of JBL that these headphones do not last 15 hours on the battery. I get about 11 1/2-12 hours with ANC. Also, I often hear static when I hit the ambient aware button on the headphones when something is playing. When nothing is playing on the headphones and the button is hit, there is no static. This is my second pair as the first pair I bought had too many issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I had the horrible experience of buying this headphones . First of all the 2 day air shipping took at least a week to reach. Also even after updating my delivery address just after the purchase , they got it delivered at the wrong address . I got this headphones almost after a month. To my surprise when I opened the box , it looked like it was already a used one. So I had to sent it back and I am still waiting for the new headphones. None the less it involved too much of communicating with the customer care and for which they were not really responsive most of the times . For Sound quality - I would say, I have used other JBL headphones which are far better and cheaper than this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality! Bought this one half a year ago. Have not heard better music quality for this price before. Easy to use and love that it is foldable. Only one thing: when it is very windy outside, I can hear the wind through the music when noise cancelling modus is activated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Annoying static noise! In average the headphone is good. But there is a very annoying static noise in the right ear cup when Bluetooth is connected. And I’m sure it is a particular issue with the JBL headphone, since that with other headphones I don’t experience this horrible static noise. It’s a shame because it could be a 5/5 phone, but it seems quality still needs to be improved in JBL headphones.

Got a notification they left today being sent UPS ground the day before Christmas Eve when they received them December 4th!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay When I got these I immediately turned them full volume and put on sound garden. Noticed a little distortion on right side. After a while of playing with them I realized it matters how well you position them on you head too get the best sound. The cups could be bigger for us big ear guys and the controls are hard to memorize. Plus they are so small I can barely feel them with my thumb. Other than that I like em. Noise reduction is good. Makes the music sound so much better when it's all you can hear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacements for my synchros S700 I was crying because I didn’t want to let my synchros S700 headphones go!!!!!! anybody who has a pair knows about the sound especially with the DSP sound. Well, I waited for these headphones and I am not disappointed at all. I knew these things would rock and hold high notes, but the clairity and sound are out of this would. The other added feature that I have to get use to is that their even wireless (it’s my first wireless pair) it’s a nice adjustment something that I’m getting use to their comfortable for my head, I can where them for a long period of time. I really like the noise feature that is with these headphones. Plus I added the JBL app to the phone before I got them and the EQ that’s on the app enhances the sound along with the noise cancellation. I thought I was going to be disappointed but I’m not, plus I had researched these headphones for 3 months.

They are easily adjustable, comfortable, have great bluetooth range. Battery life lasts all day on a single charge as well. The shortcut buttons make it easy to take quick pauses w/o having to unlock tablet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Headphones arrived in a nice black storage case that contains heavy duty charging cable held up to rigors of changing locations from car adapter to house. Inside is pouch that contains: -Flight adaptor: nice accessory for business travelers -Light gray cord : very lightweight and easy to use should you choose to not use Bluetooth. (wired connections are my preference) Bluetooth feature: use held up well for traveling 9 hour road trip , didnt need to recharge. App: very convenient, made it easy to adjust environment awareness levels; totally awesome when wanting block out external noises. Noise cancellation: feature , user friendly for enabling and disabling. Sound quality: clear crisp sound , without heavy bass or high treble Headphone cushions : remain comfortable after hours of use Adjustable headband: easily adjust new position, for heights Buttons on back of RIGHT earpiece: easy to navigate , especially using during workouts Opportunities for improvement: 1. When walking while listening to music, could hear thumping sound in headphones, but not other external noises, like people talking 2. Bluetooth Mode: when enabled, can hear fine high pitch screeching noise in LEFT earphone, that disappears when listening to music at high levels 3. Headphones do slide frequently while on head [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High learning curve, customizable JBL Pro Sound The durability has improved since the first JBL Everest Generation, but it's more comfortable and more forgiving to wear in long albums--even though on my unit the right earcup has minor issues. All controls are now on the right which may take some time to get used to but the controls are cosmetically adjusted to match the Everest premise. The headphone looks and feels a bit more luxurious than the previous generation. The central selling point is Harman's TruNote technology which customizes the sound signature as no ears the same, so the accuracy is contingent on your ear. The JBL MyHeadphones App's Equalizer takes a bit of time to get used to. The Harman Noise Cancellation Feature is an added plus, although it's only available with the Everest Elite 750NC. On my wish list is Harman's Clari-Fi technology, yet to be deployed on these luxury headphones. Also it would be nice if the Harman LiveStage DSP would be deployed as well. If handled right and mastered, these headphones could be the only pair you might need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of details and hard work by JBL on these! I have spent some years limiting the amount of headphone use I went through and now that I have these, I am a major fan of headphones. Previously, I felt that I would get fatigue in my ears after prolonged headphone use, not with these. The act of listening to music with these is so enjoyable. First of all, upon initial pairing with my iPhone, I get prompted to download the JBL headphone app, which takes a mere moment and is super worth it. In the upper screen of my phone where I view my phone's battery life, I also monitor my headphone's battery life. After initial pairing, simply power up the headphones and the pairing is immediate. App also lets you control just how noise cancelling you like the headphones by adjusting outside ambient sounds up or down: nice feature. To really do this review justice, I could tell you how beautiful and rich the sound is, but you already expect that I assume...and you are correct. I hear nuances in songs for the first time when listening in these. That said, I wanted to explain many of the well thought out details present in these cans. No squinting to find the R for right and L for left on these, there are large letters nested away out of sight while wearing, but on the foam/mesh of the speaker covers inside....easy to quickly assess and put on. Also, I wore these for six hours straight to see if they would press into my ears or head over time and hurt, nope, comfy cozy all the way. Next up, I put my iPhone down on one side of my house and walked away from it to the other side of the house to test the distance it can stay paired...not until I closed my third door in my house between me and my headphones and my iPhone did I begin to notice a slight...slight connection trouble. Best Bluetooth experience I have had yet, on that one. The phones pack down nicely into their sturdy and attractive case along with all needed accessories, such as USB charging cable and audio cable (should you be forced to connect that way). Controls on bottom of each over-the-ear-piece are intuitive and easy to use. Overall, I am even swayed from my vintage aesthetic taste. I would have normally sought out headphones that looked vintage and then searched for the top sound quality in those choices, but here I am changing my habits and grateful that I did because not only do I feel I have the best features, but the design ended up winning me over (and I am a picky consumer when it comes to that.). I would like to offer up some cons or issues that I had to give a well rounded outlook on these, but I can't because after three or four weeks, I have not had one complaint. Do yourself a favor and find out what I am talking about. These are going to be with me for a long time! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound Quality I purchased the JBL 750nc headphones for two main purposes. Going to the gym and traveling. I normally use earbuds. but got so tired of that bud jammed into my ear all the time, especially if you wanted to cancel outside noise. These headphones come with a very durable hard case and have easy to use controls lining the right ear. From volume control to tack changing and phone call controls with built in mic. So I've been using the headphones for a little over two weeks and I have to say they've worked flawlessly. With them on and turned up at the gym, there's no more hearing the people next to you grunting like they're giving birth. They're so good that you can't even hear the clanking of your own weights let alone someone else's. And with the ambient awareness setting, you can set it to allow in only noises that are directly around you or almost any noise you would normally hear. For me it's set to shut everything out which it does perfectly. As I'm writing this review I'm sitting on an airplane coming back from Vegas and two rows up from me is a screaming child. The only way I know this is by the fingernails my wife is digging into my leg. I know she's wishing she had a set of these headphones now. As for sound quality it is spot on. I'm a big Mumford and Sons fan and there's several instruments this band uses, which you can easily pick out each one. The bass is deep and the trebles are high. One great feature these headphones come with is the JBL App. A must get App if you use these headphones to allow you to customize the sound. It has a built in EQ with pre settings but my favorite feature is the customizable EQ. I like a heavy bass and high highs with my mids right in the middle. Not a problem here. Along with the EQ the App gives you 4 different levels of ambient noise setting from off to low medium or high. Cool feature but again I have it set to off cause I don't want anything interrupting my music except my wife and she knows to tap my shoulder if she needs me. So for the down side. I really only have 2 issues with these headphones. They're not all that stylish. The color is vey flat and kind if boring, and they're a little bulky looking. They're super light and very comfortable to wear and are so soft around the ears it's like you're not even wearing them. But unfortunately they do look bulky. The second issue I have with the headphones, which may not even be JBLs fault, but they aren't loud enough for me. I love loud music, ear bleeding loud music. They have the same volume level as both my wired and wireless earbuds. I was hoping to reach a higher volume level with these but unfortunately not. Again it might not even be JBLs fault as there could be a health regulation limiting volume level or it could be my Apple devices limiting the volume. Overall I really like these wireless headphones and think it was a great investment. I use them virtually all the time, and the earbuds have been put away, possibly for good. As of right now I don't see a need for them to ever come back out again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like these headphones. After a week of use I may have a new favorite pair of JBL headphones. I currently own J55, and J88, but these 750nc are tops. The features are all convenient and easy to get use to. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Travelers These headphones are ideal for frequent travelers and are designed to work best with iPhone or Android devices due to the bluetooth and app control features. The noise canceling and variable ambient noise features are really neat and perfect for any long car, train, or plane ride. The ambient noise feature is the first kind that I have experienced. What it does is amplify the ambient noise through the headphones and allows you to adjust the level of ambient noise so you can hear your surroundings if desired in certain settings. This is not a feature I would ever imagine wanting until I tried it. After getting used to it, I prefer using the headphones with the ambient noise turned on. These are some of the most comfortable headphones I have ever tried and they fold up nicely in a convenient travel case that is included. Sound quality is great but they are a bit lacking in max volume. Rechargeable battery life was not an issue for me, but in the event you are stuck with a dead battery, the aux cord provided allows you to use the headphones just like traditional ones. The majority of the frame material is plastic, but the important parts such as the adjustable slide and hinges for folding are metal and feel very solid. These headphones certainly have the "feel" of quality and comfort when using them. In conclusion, I really like these headphones. My only complaints are that they could be louder, and although they have great sound quality, I would say there is still room for improvement. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones !! These headphones are the best!!! They are comfortable to wear and the sound quality is great. Custom adjustments to my audio preferences is done via the JBL headphone applicaion on my Android phone. This app is very user friendly and makes audio changes fast and simple. I would recommend these headphones to my family and friends. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I like these JBL Everest Elite 750NC headphones, but they are a little uncomfortable after wearing them for about a half hour. This may change the longer I wear them. Connecting them via bluetooth to my phone was painless and using the app was pretty easy too. I like the flexibility of equalization when using the app. The awareness feature works really well too. What I don't like is that you lose a lot of your highs when the feature is turned on, but the bass is pretty good, a little muddy at times, but because I like to "feel" the bass, it's cool. As I am typing this, I am using them wired to my computer. All of the highs and clarity is back, but the bass is missing. It's like listening to music without hardly any bass, but the voice and clarity is great. As of this moment, I don't know if there are any equalization adjustments that can be made when they are used wired, but I will be checking on the website to verify this. Hopefully there are adjustments, if there are none, it won't be a deal breaker, but it would be something that I would like them to have. The one negative that I have is about the user manual. The print is WAY too small. I wear glasses to read, but I had to use a magnifying glass too, just to read it. Overall, I like them a lot. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous sound!! Packaging is very good, with a nice case for the headphones and cords. The sound is fantastic and it's even better with the JBL app, you can eq your music too your liking and save your settings. Easy updates from app and easy way to adjust your smart settings. The sound from these headphones is clean and they have a good range. The headphones have easy access to the controls and the ability to change your noise cancelling from them makes it even more enjoyable. Even the app. Gives you the ability to three different settings each allowing you to hear more of your surroundings if you choose. The phone answering to my surprise, was extremely clear. The noise cancelling option on the headphones are superb. very quiet listening pleasure when you want to cancel out surrounding noise. The headphones are very comfortable you don't even realize they are on after awhile. Also the Bluetooth has quite a range to it. I put my phone on the kitchen table and went outside walking around the house and never lost the signal. Three things I would suggest by JBL, are as follows: a AC adapter so you can charge the headphones without a computer. 2nd, the volume could be increased a bit more for CDs that are softer in recording. Perhaps a loudness control on the app, would be nice. 3rd, the manual is a bit vague on the controls of the headphones, so you need to play around to figure out how they work. And the print of the manual is extremely small. It would be better if in the country where being sold, the print was larger to read. I would however say if you listen to hip hop or music that you like more bass, this may not be to your liking. As a musician I spent a lot of time trying different styles of music, and found the headphones sounded great with most of the music. All in all, I would highly recommend these headphones. They are priced well and give superb sound and ease of operation with the controls and the additional app. you can download for free. Thumbs up JBL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and nice noise cancelling mic I've had these for about a week and I love them. The noise cancelling feature allows you to adjust how much of the outside world gets it. Music sounds great with or without the NC feature, but I prefer it with. The app is a nice feature as well and allows control over the NC and offers a rather robust equalizer to boot. I actually like these for phone calls too. The NC mic is great and I can actually be heard better with these than through my usual phone case. Battery life is impressive and the app has a nice gauge to let you know home much power is left (easier to read than the little one at the top of my phone). They are really comfortable too. I've worn them for hours at a time with no discomfort. They fit over the ear, so if you prefer on ear, these aren't for you - but I much prefer this. Overall, I think these a wonderful balance of features, comfort, weight, and sound quality. the buttons take some getting used to and aren't entirely intuitive, but I learned quickly and also use the app. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line After receiving these headphones I tried to put them to the test. I played all different types of music through them at different volumes and let several people try them on, this is what I found. The bluetooth connection is easy and fast just as all other JBL devices. However, you have to download the JBL Headphones app. The app is very basic and does only the job it needs too. The app allows the user to change the amount of outside sound that can be heard inside the headphones. This is genius but I am excited for any sort of update in the app. After trying different types of music I found that all music sounds incredible in the headphones. People who tried them on would say things like, "This is my favorite song that I have listened to for years and I have never heard it sound this good." So far I have had these headphones for a week. I tried on and used top of the line Beats and Bose headphones and though they are also incredible, none of them were as comfortable or better quality as most people think. The only other con I have found is that at a low volume you can heard a small buzz of the headphones canceling out outside noise. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Ambient Levels and Noise Canceling. The sound is great as well as the ambient levels and noise canceling. The head adjustment is a little loose if you want to wear it while doing small jumps. One thing I noticed is that you loose Bluetooth signal and connection at about 15 feet of distance. Not sure if it is the phone Bluetooth the headset or battery getting low. I purchased the JBL® Everest™ Elite 700 for my son over a year ago and he uses it with his phone. The Bluetooth signal is great. He can have music playing downstairs on his phone and listen upstairs without disruption. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic noise cancellation and portability I cannot stress enough how impressed I am with the adaptive noise cancellation. The headphones silence nearly all low frequency noises; perfect for car rides or listening on a plane. They also do a very good job of removing the sound of voices, but do not completely silence them. The headphones come out of the box with a clean and balanced sound. If you’re a bass head, the customizable EQ within the app has a respectable bass setting. They’re light and comfortable to wear. I can and often do listen to them all day without a problem. The case that they come in is fantastic. They collapse and store very well. In general, these are a perfect set of travel headphones! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound! Great compact quality headphones. If you are looking for an "elite" headphone around this price I would say this is one of the best ones. The headphones are really great for everyday use but of course they have some disadvantages, for example, the buttons should be more metallic like instead of cheap plastic buttons. The competitors also have the same cheap plastic feel to it so this is not the only one! Buttons are also pretty close to each other which makes it a little hard to figure out which one is which, but you get used to it, and buttons work perfectly fine with IOS and Android devices. You can skip or go back to a track by holding the buttons for 3 seconds. There's also a noise canceling button so you can turn it on/off really easily, and you can adjust the noise cancelig which I will get more into. They are as flexible as the Bose QuietComfort 35s so there's no problem with the flexibility and comfort, you can have them on your head and feel nothing for 4 hours, the earcups are really big so it covers your whole ear(at least it covered mine), and they are so puffy which makes it great to put on. Another downside was that the carrying case that comes with it is not a hard case so when I throw this in my duffle bag I have a feeling that they might get damaged a little(it protects it from scratches perfectly and has a little rope thing so you can hang it from your bookbag or tie it somewhere. The inside of the case is fully made out of Velcro so you if you would like to add a patch or something that you like you can do that which is a smart idea. As you can see in the pictures it comes with a charging cable, a flight adaptor so you can also use it on an airplane, and a 3.5mm headphone jack cable which allows you to listen non-wireless. One of the greatest things about the headphones is the customizability of the sound as it says on the box. You are allowed to change the Highs, Mids, and the Lows as you would like, you can create presets, and change them up depending on your music. You can also see your battery percentage, turn off/on the noise canceling feature, and adjust the Ambient Awareness, so you can basically adjust how much of the noise you would like to cancel out, and enjoy your music. The range is also really good(so far) I was able to put my phone on the side of the court and play basketball, volleyball with no problem, they might fall if you do too many moves, but since these are not sport headphones I don't mind they are still great to listen to music while practising. To summarize it up, these headphones have great features and techology with them, great for travelling or even to produce music if you want to do both at the same time. As for the competitors I see no point spending the same amount on the Beats, and they are really identical with the Bose ones, so if you are a Bose fan then sure stick with that, but I don't see any reasons to not to buy these. Great Headphones! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good Overall pretty good unit to use. In some aspects it is an upgrade compared to the old Everest 700. The comfort is little improved and so is the sound. The sound is also pretty nuetral and the design is slimmer. The case included is way nicer than the canvas case that was included with the Everest 700 elite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good construction and feel. I found them to be very comfortable around my ears and head after hours of wear. The JBL apps are really great giving you equalizer settings and more. The sound quality is unbiased, which means it will play back any audio the way it actually sounds. Very good Bluetooth headphones. I like them. JBL Everest Elite 750NC and I use them for watching movies on my smart tv with Bluetooth for private listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite headphones. I ended up using this pair of headphones as a replacement to my Bose Quiet Comfort set that got repurposed. Some immediate differences I noted was the sound quality and the ability to adjust how much outside sound the headphones let in. I mostly use these for gaming and listening to music, and especially in games, I was able to hear things previously not heard on my Bose. Not sure if this was due to better Bluetooth or better speakers but I am quite happy. The most surprising feature that makes it difficult for me to want to use my Bose pair is the adjustable noise canceling. This is a must for parents or people who need to be able to hear their surroundings while getting lost in their entertainment all while still being able to completely block everything out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great headphones with great technology built in! This headphones came in great packaging. They come with all the accessories you will need including an adapter to use on an airplane. My first thoughts when opening the box was how well everything is packaged. The headphones come in a very durable zip up case that is used to store them. Once you open the case the headphones are neatly folded next to the small accessory pouch. I removed the headphones and removed the included usb charging cable from the pouch. They took about an hour to get to full charged. I like how there is a charging light that stays lit while it charges. Once charged I turned on the headphones which went into pair mode. I was pairing them to an iPhone 7. Synced up without an issue. I downloaded the JBL headphone app. The headphones work great with the app and helps setup the headphones. Similar to a home theater receiver, the headphones let out a delayed tone. The headphones were now ready to be used. My first impression of the sound was that it was clear and undistorted. I could here a full range of frequencies without having to turn up the volume. I wouldn't call these bass heavy headphones. They capture and produce a full frequency range. I listened to the headphones for 8 hours straight. They are extremely comfortable. They encapsulate my entire ear and don't feel heavy. The controls on the right ear are a bit cumbersome. Its hard to figure what is what without knowing the order of the buttons. I like having a smart button to program for features such as the NCS. The NCS system built into these headphone is awesome. I have four loud kids!!! These headphones drowned them out and allowed my to enjoy my music for hours. One feature I am a fan of is the fact you can adjust the amount of ambient noise you can hear. At certain times of the day I need to hear what is going on but still want to hear my music. With the app or the programming of the smart button, I can adjust it to my liking. I can hear my surroundings and my music while being encased in these headphones. The cons to these headphones are that if you don't have them sitting around your ears perfectly they tend to make a funny sound. The sound is as if the headphones are distorting. This occurs when the NCS function is active. If you seal the headphone to your head with slight pressure then you won't experience this. I also wish these were a little louder. With the initial "JBL" the should JUST BE LOUD. Overall I am enjoying these headphones. They are made for listening while relaxing. They offer great sound insulation and are great quality. The battery life was about 10.5 hours with the NCS feature on. Once the battery had depleted I had plugged them into my phone and I was able to continue to enjoy my music. It was great to all be able to fine adjust the frequencies of the headphones via the app. I was able to save and name my settings. This is an important feature for me when listening to music. I have a series of headphones that I own and I will say these are one of my favorites due to the noise cancelling properties, they are very comfortable and they have great sound while being transmitted via bluetooth. I also like how I walked around my entire house while leaving my phone in my bedroom and these headphones never lost connection. I even went into my basement to do my laundry and they never lost connection. I have a good size 3 bedroom house with a full basement. I found this range very impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I received the item and excitedly opened the package. I read through the included documentation to pair and set up the headphones to my phone. I played various types of music as well as podcasts. I found the sound to be comparible to Bose and better than my Sony over the ear Phones. I enjoyed the noise canceling adjustment. Another great feature is the blue tooth phone. Nice to be able to answer phone while walking and not having to remove headphones! Downside is the button location for control. I found that when I adjusted the fit or removed the phones I turned off the unit. I think i will learn not to ove time and usage. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Innovative Tech The Jbl Everest Elite 750nc is most notably a product that changes the headphone experience going forward. Features like its various noise cancelling levels (changed through mobile app), software that can receive updates and adaptive earcups all stand out to me as innovation at its best. For sound quality, I would say it was typical for jbl products, great but leaves some to be desired on the low end (but I found that equalizer in all helps), and vocals are clear. Battery life is adequate, as I have had these for about a week and have used them moderately and they are still about half charged straight out of the package. Only one thing stood out to me that I don't like, and although minor, the button placement and differentiation is sometimes difficult to use, as all they all feel very similar and only on one side only. Overall these headphones are great for the job that they set out to do, although few things like price and buttons hold it back a little. P.S. I mostly listen to edm and they are great for it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great overall package but some glaring issues I have owned various different headsets over the years (Bluetooth specifically) - and these are easily the best sounding I have ever used. The clarity and bass are awesome - I hear things in my tracks I do not on my other headsets I have been using in the recent past. Build wise I am confident these will last quite a while as they feel and look sturdy. For the price if you're solely concerned about durability and sound I do not think you will go wrong by picking up these headphones. The active noise cancelling does what is is designed to and drowns out all outside noise - love it. My gripe with the product is the buttons - placement - feel - and most importantly (to me) how they interact with my phone and the ease of being able to switch tracks, etc. This is where I believe the product falls very short - in order to go forward or reverse in your playlist you must hold down the volume down or volume up buttons for 3 seconds. To me this is an annoyance - I mostly use these sorts of headsets at the gym and having to fumble around on the bottom of the ear cup to find the buttons (and then hold them for an extended duration) is just tedious and frustrating. If I feel the urge to skip more than one song - I have two options. First being hold the button repeatedly for 3 seconds (and letting go in between track skipping) - which is very far from ideal for me. The second is I have to do away with one of the benefits of Bluetooth headphones and find my phone and do it that way. For me both just aren't good solutions when the headset itself could have been engineered in a better way to allow for quick track skipping and other operations. Overall I want to love these but the buttons are a bit deterrent from being completely thrilled with them as a whole package. Though I will admit there are things I can do myself to get around the problem (better playlists perhaps) but that is just extra effort I feel I shouldn't need to put out - especially for the price of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product from a JBL fan!! I received these Bluetooth headphones and they are fantastic in sound and ease of use. I have owned JBL studio monitor speakers, bookshelf speakers, and earbud corded stereo headphones so I know about JBL products and their excellent sound. These headphones have great sound and ease of use. Their battery has a long life while being used in the Bluetooth mode. I could also have my phone inside the house broadcasting Pandora in Bluetooth and walk around the perimeter of my yard with good reception. Both the Noise Cancelling and Ambient noise to allow sounds such as traffic or people in the room work very well. I can sit the family room with Ambient noise on low or high and hear the television along with conversations of other people as well as the music from the Bluetooth source. The JBL Everest Elite 750NC is two thumbs-up from a JBL fan. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfort sounds I received these headphones couple days ago. The unboxing was great everything was placed nicely in the box and easily accessible. I charged them overnight. At first I was not happy with the sound, the bass was distorted and the volume was not very good. Then after I was able to get the app to act right after deleting it and reinstalling it the sound was inhanced with the use of the noise canceling system. I still have distorted bass from time to time but when it's actually working right the sound is incredible. So to sum it up I was very pleased with the overall quality and performance of the headphones just hope the distortion is a thing of the past and was a simple breaking in the headphones thing [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality and features! The packaging for these headphones is great. Opened the package to a nice carrying case with everything inside except the manuals. The carrying case is nice and soft, but everything looks really high quality. Opening the case, the headphones are kind of configured a little strange. You will have to take note of the orientation if you want to put the headphones back in the same way. The packaging doesn’t do the actual product justice. The headphones are lighter in color and shinier than the box implies, but to me that is a good thing. They have a programmable button that can control the Active Noise Cancelling or the Ambient Aware features, a charging port, volume and next track button, and a slider power button. I don’t love the sliding effect on the power button. I probably would have preferred a regular button, but I assume they used a momentary switch because the headphones have and auto-off feature. On the other side of the headphones is a wired connector to use with wired connections. I love that this is included as I still have products that don’t have Bluetooth. Manual is really small. I'm 39 (almost 40) and have had Lasik surgery. I can see pretty well and this is pretty small. They look heavy but were surprisingly lighter than I expected. I have a really large head and these fit well. I have to extend the headphones to the max, but they do fit, however... I like the left and right indicators inside the ear pieces, but when I put them on as suggested... it just feels strange. When I turn them around, they feel better. Not sure what is wrong here and I confirmed that I do know my left from my right, but it just feels better on backwards. Not that the suggested fit is uncomfortable. They have a decent fit, but it just connects with my head better the other way around. Setup was fairly easy. The app hits you with an opening video and then tells you to connect the headphones. I connected them through the Android Bluetooth setup and the app immediately connected to the headphones. It takes you through a demo of the Active Noise Canceling (ANC) and the Ambient Awareness features. These are interesting features. I have used ANC before but not the Ambient Awareness. I have to say, I can see a lot of application for the Ambient Awareness. From the capability to actually have a conversation with someone, or hear something going on while listening to music, to the ability to sing with the music and be able to hear whether you are on key or not. Neat! However, when the music stops, you do hear some hiss. It would be nice if there was a way to filter out some of the hiss because it can kind of be a little distracting when you are listening to music that is soft but the tradeoff is you get to hear the world around you AND listen to music. I can accept that. With the ANC disabled and Ambient Awareness disabled the music sounds fairly plain. There is a nice high end with a lot of presence. Mid-range is good and voices stand out really well, but the bottom end is missing. I started with the EQ disabled and going through the presets, the bass preset really brings in the low-end presence but it's more in the upper bass range, not the head rattling lower range. There is a 10 band EQ for a custom preset and this is where I think these headphones shine. I can create a custom profile of how I want these headphones to sound. BUT. When you adjust the EQ, it doesn't change the sound real-time, you apparently have to save the change, and then go back in if you want to tweak more, then save, hear the change, rinse and repeat. A little monotonous but I'll take it to keep this feature! As good as the EQ feature is (minus not having real-time changes) when you turn on or off the ANC, the EQ drastically changes. After I set the EQ where I thought the headphones should be (boosting 8k, 2k, 64, and 32Hz slightly) I then tested the ANC. When I turn it on, everything changes. Everything. The bass is now loud and in your face. Kind of odd but I guess you can have a EQ profile for ANC on and another EQ profile for ANC turned off to compensate for the drastic changes. Not a big deal. The is hiss with ANC on but they do a good job of canceling noise. You can hear a huge difference turning it on and off, but the hiss is there when music is subtle or quiet. The hiss is much better than the noise of not having ANC on but it is not absolutely quiet. Having said all that about the hiss and the EQ features (positive and negative), I have to say that these headphones sound really nice. I used Spotify on the extreme setting, I tried wired and Bluetooth and there was no noticeable difference in sound quality. Very nice. The headphones are updatable which is nice if JBL decides to make changes. Strangely when you go in just to check for an update, the headphones will disconnect and the app will dump you out. After reconnecting the EQ preset turned off. Strange. The app is pretty much unusable without the headphones connected. I'm not sure why you would want to use the app without the headphones connected, but there's that. You cannot use the headphones while they are charging. So if you had a portable charger, you are out of luck using them and charging them on the go. The other accessories that the headphones come with are nice. A decent power cord, a fancy looking airplane adapter, and the 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable for the wired connection. It would have been nice to have a locking connector on the 3.5mm cable so you don't accidentally pull the connector out, but I am guessing that the expectation is that most people would be using Bluetooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding headphones! These headphones are absolutely outstanding. The noise cancelling is amazing, the bass is really deep and punchy, and the overall sound quality is very balanced. I am very glad I got them. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
