JBL Live Flex, True Wireless immersive and comfortable

A few weeks ago, the American manufacturer presented its latest wireless headphones equipped with noise reduction technology that can be adapted to your listening, the JBL Live Flex.

The JBL Live Flex headphones are equipped with True Adaptive Noise Cancellation technology, which adapts to your listening via an ear canal test (Persone-Fi 2.0 function) to be carried out in a noisy environment, then in a quiet place.

This process, via the My JBL Headphone app and a series of questions about age, gender, habits, preferences, etc. of the user, makes it possible to draw up his optimized listening profile so that he always benefits, whatever the Bluetooth device, from his favorite pieces of music in the best conditions.

Also note the presence of six microphones for even clearer phone calls.

The word to Pascal van Laer, vice-president Headphones & Wearables at Harman

“Our research has shown the popularity of earbuds without earbuds, although noise reduction is less effective with this format,” said Pascal van Laer, vice president of Headphones & Wearables at Harman. JBL's ambition is to offer a wide range of wireless headphones to consumers. That's why we've designed the JBL Live Flex, which combines all-day comfort of ear tips without earbuds, with our real-time adaptive noise canceling. Eliminate noise and distractions with technology that adapts to your environment at all times”.
