Packing and Design
Inside the box is a transparent vyshtampovka in which the headphones themselves are fixed and there is an orange USB charging wire, a flat cord for a wired connection (on one side it has a standard 3.5 mm jack, on the other, 2.5 mm) and documentation. A carrying case, even a cloth one, no.
Headset and noise reduction system
It is known that many wireless headphones, in which the conversational microphone is located not on the wire, but on the case, are not very good in the role of a telephone headset: you hear the interlocutor perfectly well, and he can hardly understand your speech. In fact, it is not the design that is to blame, but its implementation: as it turned out, the TUNE600BTNC model provides excellent hearing of the conversation by all its participants in the wireless mode. When connected via cable, the built-in microphone of the headphones does not work – the smartphone’s microphone is used, this must be taken into account.
The noise cancellation system has a noticeable effect on the sound: after it is turned off, the lower part of the range is slightly (but noticeably) weakened, so there is a sensation of singing vocals, but for some musical genres this can be a boon. With a wired connection, this difference persists. In the same way, with slightly weakened bottoms, the headphones sound in a completely off state with a cable connection. Not surprisingly, the model comes with noise suppression enabled. Most likely, the listener will not have a desire to turn it off, at least if there is no need to hold out longer without recharging.
The TUNE600BTNC headphones feature recognizable brand-name features that have made JBL portable speakers popular – they are well-made, play very well and have no doubt that the price is justified. This is not surprising for a brand that has been manufacturing sound equipment for over 70 years.
