    Decent headphones. They're comfortable, they are built well (apart from the cheap plastic buttons) and they sound good enough. The buttons are very mushy and feel cheap. The sound quality is great apart from the bass it provides. The lack of bass means listening to hip.hop or bass heavy songs make the sound distort and make for an unpleasant experience. Listening to podcasts and slower pop tracks is where this excelled in, they were crisp and we'll maintained. The passive noise cancelling was great too, in a plane they blocked out most of the ambient noise.

The sound quality is amazing totally clear good quality sound. Have used them at the gym running outside in the garden have been able to connect them to my mobile instantly they are very durable. I would recommend them to any one who wants to listen to good quality sound.

    Testing the headphones!
    are comfortable, the ear cushions are very soft and Feels great The headband is pretty soft and overall, gives a great feel while on your head, very easy to work when wanting to connect to a phone and play music, different phones without messing around, also the battery life is great I was thinking surly it should run out soon. The sound is very clear on the headphones and you can go outside away leaving your phone/music device inside and it still sounds good.

    I have been using these headphones for ~3 weeks and so far they seem amazing. The noise cancellation is good and I feel the difference on my daily commute on a crowded London tube. They are comfortable on the ears but after ~4h using them non stop, the top my head starts to hurt in the place they sit on. My favourite feature is the possibility of having them connected to my phone and computer at the same time. However, the transition not always works and the phone app does not recognize the headphones despite the fact that I am hearing. I usually disconnect them and connect them again and it works. The charging is surprisingly fast and the headphones last for ages, which is awesome. A thing I don't like is the charging cable entrance. I wish it was type C so I could use my phone's one and have to carry around several cables. Another problem I have with them is when using Skype: they don't allow me to share the sound of my computer, unlike my other headphones. I tried to change all the definitions regarding sound in the computer to solve this problem but to no avail. Overall, I would recommend them as my experience has been mostly positive.

    I've had my 500BT headphones for 3 weeks now and they are my preferred headphones when on the go. They are lightweight with 30 hours play time, in 2 weeks I've charged only once via the micro usb port, 5 minutes charge gives you an hours charge, good for when leaving the office.
    Quality wise, these are high quality in terms of sound, build, and features.
    The headphones sit comfortably on the ears and are really good at cancelling out ambient noise. The music can be heard loud and clear, however there is sometimes some lag when watching hq videos on youtube, so they may not be as good for the gamers out there.
    One thing that can be improved is the microphone, these really struggle when out and about in a busy city, on the bus, but not so bad on the train or indoors.
    When not in use these live in my rucksack and they have done well in not getting broken, so they are really tough and should last.
    I've only taken these for a long haul journey once, 3 hours, and they can become uncomfortable for this sort of duration, anything for an hour or less is fairly comfortable and decent.
    One thing to be aware of, I found the ambient noise cancellation to be so effective that I didn't hear a tram horning away behind me in the city centre, so please be more aware of your surroundings when wearing these as it's easy to get immersed in the music!

    I love these headphones! They are stylish, sleek.and very comfortable to wear, the sound quality is just what you would expect out of your purchase..brilliant!
    The addition of Alexa and google assistant makes these headphones more advanced than other wireless headsets and it is a most welcomed addition, I played these for 4 hours non stop and the battery held well.
    You can answer calls and the caller heard me with no problems as I did them, there was no cracking and the call was very crisp and clear.
    The JBL live 500BT are very easy to use and rest assured you wont be disappointed.

    I really like these headphones. I’m not technically minded, so I will not elaborate on the finer detail. They are packed with great features, more than my other big brand headphones. They are comfortable, my ears don’t ache when I remove the headset after long periods. I can answer calls, all very easy! The sound is great and I can be aware of my environment whilst wearing them travelling around London. Finally the battery is great, hasn’t failed! Thumbs up from me.
