[Amazon.ca] JBL Tune 500BT Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones for $35 (regular $79.99 55% off) (Amazon & Best Buy)

JBL Tune 500BT Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones with Remote/Mic with up to 16 Hours of Music Playtime - Blue

It is available in Amazon (Blue color) and Bestbuy (Blue and Black + Rakuten 1%) with $35 as price. Nice option for work from home folks.

Reviews are mixed but will not go wrong for the price I believe.

In terms of feature/function, it looks good for the price but the earpad looks like it's a material that would easily ripped and wear off so you would need to replace sooner than you expect.

I also wonder if it is a simply plastic headband or there's a steel plate inside the headband. Every single headphone with a plastic headband that I had used were broken in half after a while.

Does anyone have reviews for these headphones or can link some trustworthy ones by any chance please? The price is wonderful but curious if it'll actually hold up.

The rtings one seems to be the "Live" one while this is the "Tune" one. Is there any difference?

I'm a total dope... I have the 600's, not 500's. I'm sorry for the bad advice. Regardless tho, I am buying these as the 600's I have are terrific.

here's the review of the 500's from one of the only sites I trust

here is the difference between the LIVE and TUNE versions

Good for those who missed the $29 Tune 600BTNC clearance sale at walmart

main difference between the 600 and 500 is the noise cancelling

Where was that Tune 600BTNC thread? How big is the difference?

it was buried in one of the Walmart electronic clearance thread, gotta dig up up. I remember it also mentioned the solo 3 for $29, blackweb pebble speaker for $5, skullcandy crusher for $29, and a lot of other notable.

Difference between the 600BTNC and the 500BT is very minimal, almost identical for performance, it's mainly just the Noise Cancelling, which cuts into the overall battery life of the 600BTNC, and 600bt does feel like it's louder, but that could be due to the NC.




I gave the 600BTNC as a gift to a friend who used to wear a solo3(cuz it broke) and he said it sounded better then the solo3
