About this deal

The US company claims that you'll get up to 12 hours' use with Bluetooth and ANC activated, and that extends to 22 hours with those functions switched off. While that is by no means best in class (the similarly priced Anker Soundcore Life Q20 offer up to 40 hours, for example), it's certainly not to be sniffed at – especially as you can restore the headphones to full capacity from empty with just two hours of charging.

Press and hold the ‘Volume +’ and ‘Volume –‘ buttons until the LED indicator light begins to blink. This should be about 15 seconds. Aiding portable use, the JBL Tune 600BTNC also uses hinges on the headband, so the earcups can be folded up to decrease space in your bag or purse. Tight. Specifications The JBL Tune 660NC has a few crucial improvements on the JBL Tune 600BTNC: it’s now a lighter so more comfortable pair with USB-C charging and they’ve made the jump from Bluetooth 4 to Bluetooth 5, ensuring a more stable, reliable connection. JBL has also increased the battery life from 12 hours with ANC switched on to a massive 44 hours, which in itself makes this pair of on-ear headphones a far more convincing buy. A tiny blue LED indicates you’re connected via Bluetooth, while a white one shows noise-cancelling is switched on.The LED indicator light will begin to blink. This means that the Bluetooth pairing settings have been reset. They fit nicely too, with a good level of comfort - though we do find our ears warming up after using them for an hour or so. Given they’re an on-ear design, that’s hardly unexpected – and it could even come in handy during those cold winter months. Or, for something a little more discreet, take a look at the best true wireless headphones you can buy.

The fundamental character of the JBL doesn’t change with the move to wireless. This is still a headphone that wants to present music with a fundamentally positive spin. This works best when you play livelier sounding music with a bit of force to it. When you play more delicate material with real instruments some of the slight failings of the JBL are easier to determine. The tonality is pretty good but there is a congestion and compression to the midrange that robs them of some of the realism that they are capable of elsewhere.JBL clearly had mobile listeners in mind when they developed the Tune 600BTNC; not only are these headphones foldable, making them easy to stow away. They're lightweight too, tipping the scales at just 6.1oz / 173g. But the clearest indication these were made for people on the move is that they boast impressive battery life.

As such, the JBL makes use of a technology that they imaginatively enough call Pure Bass Sound. The actual engineering that goes into this is not something that the company expands upon hugely (and given the very different technology that goes into the variety of products that are described as having it, it is reasonable to assume that it might be more than a single piece of engineering anyway) but the intention is to generate the ‘live’ bass effect that we have come to expect from many venues - not least because they often use hulking great JBL speakers. Comfort is noteworthy. All that plastic keeps things light. In fact, these might be the lightest headphones I have ever used…or at least close. We’re definitely talking Koss Porta-Pro territory here, folks. The feeling that chaos was about to erupt was palpable": Thurston Moore's memoir Sonic Life is a fascinating insider account of life-changing outsider art, and one music geek's insatiable lust for the loud In my years as an audiophile, I’ve dealt with a lot of Bluetooth headphone resets. Most of the time, the issue I’m having clears up right away. As it stands, JBL has some of the simplest resetting procedures I’ve seen.To their credit, the JBLs do a good job of cutting through the hustle and bustle of a busy bus or a crowded train compartment. Turn the feature on and the clarity and level of detail that the Tune600BTNCs serve goes up a notch.
