JBL Synchros S700 Premium Powered Over-Ear Stereo Headphones

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #363 in Over-Ear


Pros: Clarity, Deep bass, very comfortable, nice carrying case and extraordinary build quality

Cons: I`m still trying to find one



I`ve noticed that there aren`t many reviews of these headphones out there and I think they are too underrated, maybe because of it`s price.  So, let`s get to it.


Style:  I think they look beautiful, I would wear the them in the street without any problem, even wearing a suit.  


Build Quality: Simply the best out there, I`ve never seen a pair of headphones that looked so expensive as this one. All metal, real leather earpads and headband, I don`t need to say anything else.


Comfort: I couldn`t think anything better, the earpads are big enough to cover my ears nicely. I`ve watched lots of 3 hour movies and I didn`t feel any discomfort.  I`ve heard people saying that they`re too heavy and I agree with them, but if you place the headphones correctly on your head you won`t feel any discomfort at all. I`ve head a Bose AE2 which are very comfortable, but the s700 beat them in my opinion.


Sound: They have a very very good clarity in general, I can notice things that I had never noticed in my songs, the bass is very deep and accurate, not too punchy that makes you not hear the rest of the song, but its definitely present and makes the whole difference when watching movies. The mids are present, making the vocals sound very realistic and the highs are crystal clear and don`t sound harsh any time.  The Live stage makes rock songs sound better as it reduces bass and give guitars some extra energy, but honestly, I noticed very little difference in terms of soundstage, which is not a problem, because these headphones are worth the money even if they didn`t have such technology. Some times I think it makes the songs better, sometimes I prefer turning it off.


Extra: They come with android and windows phone control cable and apple cables, the carrying case looks fancy, even though it is not hard, and the battery for using the Live Stage lasts a really long time.


I wouldn`t pay 300 bucks for them, I got them used like new for 180 and I`m extremely satisfied and I think if they really last long I won`t buy any other pair of headphones, I think they`re very close to perfection,  So Underrated

Beautiful. Powerful. Authentic.Control your device with the interchangeable Apple iOS and universal three-button cables inlcuded with the S700 headphones.View largerAuthenticity Just Got a New LookIn a world grown oversaturated by conventional, plastic headphones, we decided to take a long, bold leap into authenticity. Imagine a lightweight yet durable die-cast aluminum frame with a sturdy steel headband. Picture woven fabric accents. Think sculpted, soft leather ear cushions that envelop your senses in precision-designed comfort. In sum, envision the new S700 Stereo Headphone by JBL. Born from groundbreaking acoustic research in Harman's laboratories, the S700 is modeled after the same JBL sound systems used in the world's most prestigious clubs, delivering a balanced audio experience with razor-edge clarity and deep, powerful bass.Propriety LiveStage DSP - A Concert in Your EarsLiveStage represents a breakthrough in acoustic research. Using advanced, binaural digital signal processing, LiveStage recreates the sense of spatial presence that you feel when listening to loudspeakers in a room, overcoming in-the-head and somewhat “dead” feeling of typical headphone reproduction.To recreate the Pro Audio experience, we first had to define it: enter the JBL LSR 6332 loudspeaker. Harmonious, complex and truly lifelike, we sought to recreate their awe-inspiring listening experience within the Synchros series of headphones. JBL engineers painstakingly measured the LSR 6332’s acoustic profile, and leveraging decades of audio engineering expertise, translated it to a unique headphone listening experience – ready for the most diverse and demanding of playlistsUnrivaled Pro-Audio PurityPureBass performance is much more than a tag-line, it’s a philosophy. Focusing on the full audio spectrum, not just the low end, the S700 delivers a balanced audio experience with amazing clarity, and deep powerful bass -- enjoy dynamic sound with clear separation of notes, without the boomy, muddy sound found in other popular headphones.Don’t Sweat the BatteriesOne key thing almost every other powered headphone lacks is the power to sound good even when the battery power runs out. The S700 features a built-in, rechargeable Li-ion battery to deliver 28 hours of enhanced listening with LiveStage technology, but it also features a Passive playback mode to keep the music going even when the battery is dead. Unlike other powered headphones, the S700 is designed to sound great in passive mode, so even though the benefit of LiveStage technology is inactive without power, your music will still come through, loud and clearWith JBL's proprietary LiveStage DSP and PureBass performance the S700 headphones deliver unrivaled sound quality...comfortably.View largerAbout JBLEven if you've never owned a JBL product, you've almost certainly heard JBL sound.
