JBL’s Live lineup includes some solid choices of headphones in the mid-range. This lineup sits between the premium Tour lineup and the budget Tune lineup and marks some of the best JBL headphones that you can buy. In fact, we praised the JBL Live 660NC for its lightweight build, premium features, and good app. The company has now refreshed the lineup with the new Live 770NC and Live 670NC.
The new Live 770NC and Live 670NC share the same base features but are different from each other in their ear design. The Live 770NC are over-ear headphones with larger ear cups, while the Live 670NC are on-ear headphones with smaller ear cups.
These new headphones come with 40mm dynamic drivers and support JBL Spatial Sound and Adaptive ANC. Thanks to the presence of Bluetooth 5.3, they will be able to support Bluetooth LE Audio through a promised OTA update in the feature.
Right away, they let you set up a customized hearing profile with Harman’s Personi-Fi 2.0 technology. They also support multi-point connection for seamless switching between devices and autoplay and pause for a seamless playback experience.
For calls, JBL assures that you can rely on the two beamforming microphones for superior call quality. As for battery life, the company is promising up to 65 hours of playtime. When you run out, you can plug in for five minutes and get four hours’ worth of playtime, thanks to fast charging.
