Product Features:
  • Lightweight steel headband and soft leather ear cushions
    In a world that yearns for something different – for an edgy, stylish headphone -- we went ahead and took a headlong plunge into authenticity. That’s where the style and daredevil spirit of our new JBL S500 headphones comes from: pure originality. Picture a soft-touch headphone fused with a steel headband that’s both lightweight and durable. Now, imagine your ears coming into contact with the premium leather ear cushions on either end. There you go. That’s the spirit. Introducing the new S500 Stereo Headphones from JBL.
  • Proprietary LiveStage™ DSP gives listeners a more lifelike audio experience
    From the company that gave you some of the world’s finest concert and club sound systems comes a headphone that carries all the power and precision of a live concert event straight into your ear. That’s the concept behind JBL’s proprietary LiveStage™ digital signal processing technology – as easy to use as it’s impossible to imitate. Simply press the button on the side of your headphone and find yourself – front and center – engulfed in a music experience without precedent. How it Works; LiveStage represents a breakthrough in acoustic research. Using an 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 immense sound dispersion, unadulterated vocals, and stunning instrumentals. A true listening pleasure.
  • JBL Professional Audio Sound with PureBass performance
    It’s no trade secret we’ve created the world’s most legendary loudspeakers. Artists from the Beatles to Maroon 5 have used JBL equipment to create some of their most historic recordings. So it should come as no surprise we’ve taken Pro-Audio sound to new highs – and depths – of power and portability in our Synchros Series. Introducing JBL Professional Audio Sound with PureBass performance. One listen to our S500 – and the phrase “clarity of sound” will never sound the same. To recreate the first ever Pro Audio experience in headphones, we first had to define it: enter JBL LSR 6332 loudspeakers. Harmonious, complex and truly lifelike, we sought to recreate the awe-inspiring listening experience within the Synchros series of headphones. JBL engineers painstakingly measured the LSR 6332 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 playlists. PureBass performance is much more than a tag-line, it’s a philosophy. Focusing on the full audio spectrum, not just the low end, the headphones deliver a balanced audio experience with amazing clarity, and deep powerful bass; producing clear separation of notes, avoiding the boominess and muddy sound found in other popular headphones.
  • Powered by 2 AAA batteries
    One key thing almost every other powered headphone lacks is the power to sound good even when the battery power runs out. The S500 uses 2 ‘AAA’ batteries to deliver 20 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 S500 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 clear.
  • Compatible with your choice of either iOS or Android devices.
    Detachable cable design with either an iOS 3-button remote/microphone cable or a universal 3-button remote/microphone cable included, giving you the flexibility you need for on-the-go listening.

Rated 5 von 5 von aus Simply amazing! I've had several different headphones in the past like AKG, Grado and Sennheiser but these JBL's are simply a huge step above. With the Livestage off, they are very nice but with just a flick of the switch, they turn your head into a concert hall! Simple words cannot explain the feeling you get between your ears other than sheer listening bliss. Before these, my latest headphones were the Sennheiser HD-595's which will now reside in a drawer. Sure, they were nice but they do not provide the sonic clarity or the full frequency response as the JBL S500's. I find myself not wanting to turn the music off as I can listen to these for hours. I am extremely happy with these great looking and well built headphones. I wholeheartedly believe that JBL has the best headphones for the money bar none! Thanks JBL, you continue to define what music is all about.

Rated 5 von 5 von aus Superlative I've listened to only a handful of songs with my new S500 and I was compelled to write a review. I've taken back Beats, Samsung, and auditioned countless others. These smoke em! I do audio engineering as a career and have been a music and HiFi aficionado for all of my life and never have been so impressed with a set of headphones as I am with these. Jump on the opportunity - buy them now! Can't wait to try the DSP out.

Rated 5 von 5 von aus Great sound, great idea! We need Harman in Brazil! We need more options in our stores, no more B.... and others like but, hear music from Harman devices is naturally fantastic. My first high quality sound I´ve had with JBL Vibe, simple one. After, I´ve bought another, and after a dock station. Harman´s devices are an essential part of my life, lifestyle and, of course, the pleasure I have doing things, working or wailking, hearing from your devices, it really changed my routine, day after day, changes our lives. Bring more products to Brazil, more options, please.

Rated 5 von 5 von aus JBL @ it’s prime design Got this from the JBL app. Couldn’t resist the refurb deal. Brilliant design excellent craftsmanship. The sound is full, and replicated music in nice detail. The special feature to enhance the sound was too vague for me. Music seemed to be replicated over the top sphere of head. Use as normal headphones and worth every penny.

Rated 5 von 5 von aus JBL Did it Right. Whoa just got these and out the case they sound AMAZING. Playing Patricia Barber Yellow Car III(Instrumental) and everything is clear and separation is great. It's feels like the band is here. WOWEE! Raquel Rodriguez Not My Night has a nice horn and Wah-wah guitar that sounds amazing. Her vocals are clear as a bell and the bass/drum cybals is just right. No BOOM here folks. Grace Weber's Only You Set Me Free acoustic opening is clear as the guitar players pick the acual strum. The Tamborine is clear in the background(never heard that before) Being that these are my first JBL headphones(I had a couple of JBL speakers, but they drowned) I'm amazed. Gotta get the Fiona Apple stuff out I bet I will hear stuff I've never heard. These are a steal. I bet you guys would love them. Oh and they are comfy.

Rated 5 von 5 von aus Great detailed sound I finally had enough of spending my money on better and better ear buds that still kept getting loose in my ear and decided to switch to over-ear and go all in with these headphones and I am not disappointed. They sound fantastic and reproduce music very accurately. It’s easy to hear every instrument and every little sound an instrument makes, like every squeak of the fingers or the pick on guitar strings. It was even annoying at first that I could hear every little imperfection in recordings but I gladly trade this occassional disturbance for the superior music quality. The bass is very nice, round, softly resonating. I do not think the headphones are “bass-heavy” as I read in another review. They will not overpower the rest of the music with some club-thumping bass. They will just let you hear the low end, too. I find that the LiveStage feature works well in certain situations. I like to listen to some stuff in regular mode to get totally immersed in music but I like to use Live stage to lift music out of my head when I don’t want to get too distracted. For example, sometimes it bothers me if the singer appears to be singing right in the middle of my head because that is where I would like to be when I work. I like how LiveStage lifts the music out of my head and places it in front of me. Compared to the regular mode at the same volume, LiveStage seems to be a bit less powerful. This may give one the false impression that Live Stage does not sound as good but a little volume adjustment will help to deliver a similarly rich experience – just a different kind. I find that the headphones are very comfortable once the headband is set to the right tension. Everything looks sturdy and well made. The iphone cable works well but I miss a cable with the thicker (5 mm?) plug or a converter to connect to some hi-fi equipment.

Hello, recently I buy from a shop overseas my beloved jbl s500 headphones. Now the sound is not coming out of the left side unless I jiggle the cord just right. I thought it was the cord and bought a new one but still the same.  Any suggestions or ideas?

Gefragt von: Floryan
If changing the cords doesn't make any difference then the cause may be inside the headphones, I noticed you're from Romania, For further assistance, Please contact our distributors in Romania SOUNDMASTERS SRL at +40 21 3168555 or shoot them an email through mihailungu@soundmasters.ro .

Hi, do these headphones fold?

Gefragt von: Nikos
The Synchros S500 headphones can not fold in half, however you can adjust the ear pads so the headphones can lay flat which makes it easy and safe to travel with.

Hi are these compatible on a Windows 10 pc. Or is the sound degraded or lowered when connected. Are they just for portable devices?

Gefragt von: Headphone shopper
Because these headphones use an audio jack, they will be compatible with all devices that support a 3.5 mm headphone socket.
