At CES 2024, JBL introduced six new headphone models, part of the Tune and Live series, designed to elevate the on-the-go listening experience for active lifestyle enthusiasts. These models come with several upgrades, including longer battery life, Bluetooth 5.3 capabilities, EQ customization tools, and noise canceling features.

New JBL Tune Series

The JBL Tune series introduces four diverse models, each offering unique features tailored to various preferences and lifestyles. All models are equipped with the latest Bluetooth 5.3 for stable connectivity and are available in a range of colors.

The JBL Tune 520BT and JBL Tune 720BT are focused on delivering extended battery life with up to 57 and 76 hours, respectively, and speed charge capabilities, making them ideal for long-lasting, on-the-go use. The 520BT features 33mm drivers and a lightweight on-ear design, while the 720BT offers a more immersive experience with 40mm drivers and an over-ear design.

On the other hand, the JBL Tune 670NC and JBL Tune 770NC introduce Adaptive Noise Cancelling with Smart Ambient, providing a more focused listening environment. While both have similar battery life, up to 70 hours without ANC, and come with 32mm and 40mm drivers respectively, the 670NC offers a compact on-ear design, and the 770NC provides an over-ear fit for added comfort and isolation.
