I have an eye on the jbl 300 I demoed the elite 300 and I fell in love, one thing I may not need anc but how good is the isolation on the standard 300?? Or is elite 300 worth the extra cash??
The 300's are very good, and the isolation is sufficient. I tested them, the 300 Elite and the 700 and found them to be the most bang for the buck at the $130 sale price BestBuy frequently runs them at. I'm not a big fan of the additional circuitry and processing that EQ and NC requires - I even run the 300's wired most of the time.
A couple of caveats - the 300's do clamp tightly, and there is a significant delay in the audio when used as bluetooth, so they may not be suitable for movie watching.
