JBL Live 500BT

JBL Live 500BT features 2.4 GHz (2402 to 2480 MHz) frequency and are available in colours blue, red, black, or green.


These headphones are well-built and feel a bit more solid. The folding joints are made out of metal and don’t give a cheap feel when folding the cups. Also, the cups feel fairly dense and shouldn’t break from accidental drops. The headband is also reinforced with a thin metal sheet.


JBL Live 500BT are quite bulky. On the upside, they do fold into a more compact format and their cups also swivel to lay flat. This makes it easier to wear them around your neck or to slide in a bag. Unfortunately, they don’t come with a case to protect them when you’re on the move.


You have control over your calls, music, and volume, on top of being able to skip tracks. You can also cover the left cup with your palm to easily trigger your voice assistant, which you can also do by double tapping the middle multi-purpose button.
