The highlight of the Live 650BTNC from JBL in everyday use was the successful integration of Google Assistant. The noise suppression was also very versatile, but a little background noise has to be accepted. Otherwise, these universally oriented Bluetooth over-ears score points with a powerful quick charging function, seamless switching between two paired devices, and plenty of freedom of movement thanks to stable wireless connection with a long range.

Amazing noise-cancelling headphones on a budget

from Phandroid

The JBL Live 650 BTNC headphones may not be among the best in the category, but they’re phenomenal when you take into account their $200 price point. The minor issues I’ve pointed out will only be obvious to those who have used noise-canceling headphones which cost $150 more than the $200 JBL is asking for its headphones.

Ultimate value wireless noise cancelling headphones

from VR-Zone

At SGD 249, the JBL Live 650BTNC offers some of the best features from top-end models while retaining a great form-factor. Where it lacks in terms of fit and finish and ANC performance, the headphones more than make up for it in build, feature set and sound quality.

Looks good, aggressively strong cancellation

from Headphone Dungeon

Overall, the JBL LIVE 650BTNC is a great option for those who want a good looking, portable set of noise cancelling headphones! They won’t be for those looking for aggressively strong cancellation. However, these are great for most folks’ purposes! Additionally, they sound best with pop, hip-hop, and electronic music!

A good bang for your buck

I dig these cans. Usually this sound signature would be a tad vegan for me. But after adjusting the equalizer, you should find the balance you’re looking for. Combine this versatility with a clean and detailed presentation, and you’ve got a skilled sound profile. And considering the sturdy build, good looks and decent noise cancellation, the Live 650BT proves to be a good bang for your buck.

Noise cancelling, great sound and terrific price

from Gadget Guy

The JBL Live 650BTNC are excellent headphones at a price that is hard to beat. If this is your first foray into ANC headphones, then this is the one you should strongly consider. It will give years of service, and you are not missing anything in sound quality or ANC effectiveness.

Decent, mixed usage, Bluetooth over-ear headphones

Decent for mixed usage. The JBL Live 650 BTNC have an accurate sound profile with an overemphasized bass which will be better suited for bass-heavy genres.

Decent for mixed usage. The JBL Live 650 BTNC have an accurate sound profile with an overemphasized bass which will be better suited for bass-heavy genres. Also, their isolation performance is okay, and they can be used for commuting as well. While they are decently stable, they might not be the best option for sports since they get quite warm and their bulky design isn’t ideal for this use case. On the upside, they’ll be good for the office since they have a long battery life and block work environment noises. They are also comfortable to wear for a while. However, like most Bluetooth headphones, they won’t be great for watching TV and gaming because of their latency.

Digital Trends

A wonderful everyday listening companion

from Digital Trends

If you’re after a great pair of noise-canceling headphones for travel, work, or home, but don’t quite have the budget for top-tier options, the JBL 650BTNC inhabit a very solid middle ground, providing comfort, usability, and great sound for around half the price of flagship offerings.
