JBL Tune 760NC : Design
The JBL Tune 760NC Wireless comes with a lightweight and robust design. The earcup is comfortably folded in the horizontal direction. The folded flat design that also folds inwards makes the JBL Tour One quite portable. Sure, it still takes up space because it has headphones around the ears that are too big in nature. But it becomes compact enough to ensure maximum portability.
The headphone does not providing a charging case to protect it against surround activity. Competitors such as the Turtle Beach Recon 200 Gen2 and Sony MDR-XB950B1 headphones offer a hard leather carrying case that goes well with the leather elements on the headphones. In the case of JBL Tune 760NC, the case material is fabric / nylon.
Moreover, the Fox leather headband is soft enough to sink in after a while without feeling squeezed. The earcup has a little wiggle room once you apply it. It’s great for stability, but not so much if you want your ears to breathe a little. JBL would have done this by design to better hold the bass and avoid leakage which would otherwise make it thinner.
While headphones have excellent build quality. But, they have no protection against elements such as sweat resistance or IP rating for protection against dust and water. So this is strictly for listening to light. It’s not the perfect tool for your morning jog or your gym sessions. Also, leather earcups really make you sweat and can’t even blend in well.
The JBL Tune 760NC offers a good amount of wireless touch control. The right earbuds include volume adjustment, switching ANC on / off and turning it on / off. You can press and hold the volume up button to move to the next track on your playlist. Or, you can press the lower volume button to return to the previous track. If you press the middle button, it will let you answer or end the call and play or pause the audio.
You can also hold down the middle button to activate your voice assistant or reject the call. When you press its power button twice, you can enter the pairing mode for your other device.
The buttons on the Tune 760NC wireless headphones are nice, clickable and responsive. There is also a bell when the headphones are on and when they link to a device. In addition, you will hear a bell indicating when you have reached the maximum volume.

JBL Tune 760NC : Sound
The sound quality of these JBL headphones is always the best. However, one of the disadvantages of having these headphones is the lack of customization options. It does not provide JBL app to customize general setting such as battery status, time, EQ sttimgs and much more. You can always tweak the EQ settings in the streaming app of your choice, but those settings won’t be if you listen to media in any other app.
Sound quality is where the JBL Tune 760NC Wireless really starts to show its value. These earbuds suffer from the same frequency response as many cheap headphones have trouble with significantly boosted bass and a bit quiet midrange reproduction. The JBL Tour One comes with 44mm dynamic drivers. To provide you with excellent quality audio. In addition, to make sure that your music always sounds wireless is probably the best.
How well does the JBL Tune 760NC’s Noise Cancellation?
Noise cancellation is also very good but we felt that when you see competition like Harman Kardon it seems a bit inferior. This reproduces the excellent quality of sound that JBL is known for. And they punch bass that are both powerful and deep. It works great on a flight where the adaptive takes good control of the noise cancellation but in other situations, you won’t find it so good.
You can choose between letting headphones automatically select the volume you need to turn off the volume so that your music or call session is not interrupted. The microphones work perfectly well and most of the people I’ve talked to didn’t even know I was using wireless headphones to talk to them. For them the audio quality was always as good as the phone if not better
In our experience, the sound is very clean, natural and loud, but it was also a little thin. But still, when we talked we understood what was on the other line. It’s important and we have no complaints about it.
The microphone has the right way to control the noise. However, we have noticed that it struggles to distinguish our voices from background sounds. This was most evident in the busy environment of train stations, subways and the like.
How good is this headphone for taking calls?
The Hands-free Calls + Voice control gives you easily and seamlessly control your sound while managing calls from your headphone, you can even trigger voice assistance as well. Just one click on the button on its ear cup and you’re all set.

JBL Tune 760NC : Battery
Although voice cancellation is touch basic, it is very difficult to stop using ANC once you hear it. That bubble of loneliness is fascinating, and once you realize that you can block most of the world, leaving you alone with your own thoughts and tunes, you will feel compelled to sit there.
Here in the JBL Tune 760NC, you can sit in that bubble of isolation for an admirable 35 hours before you need to plug in a Type C cable to recharge, which can only be done when you are not wearing it. The JBL has a USB connector stuck to the top of the right pad, and is only accessible when not in use due to the hinge design.
If you skip the sound cancellation, you can obviously get an extra 15 hours from these headphones, resulting in a battery life of up to 50 hours, although it’s hard to let go of that bubble of specific sound.
JBL Tune 760NC : Connectivity
In terms of connectivity, the headphones come with excellent Bluetooth connectivity. It comes with the most advanced A2DP 1.3, AVRCP 1.5, HFP 1.6 Bluetooth profiles. Like the JBL One Tour, it does not come with any Bluetooth codec support.
Additionally, it has Bluetooth multipoint connectivity. So, you can combine this with two other devices together, and we didn’t experience any problems during the process. This is very easy because we often switch from audio sources.
However, we did notice that its latency was a bit higher with Android devices and PCs. So, we can’t really recommend these headphones for streaming videos. However, there are some applications that can compensate for latency differently.
Additionally, with the help of Google-enabled Fast Pair, these headphones will instantly connect to your Android device. What’s even better is that you can connect multiple devices by tapping on its screen.

The JBL Tune 760NC is a great pair of wireless headphones that deliver neutral-sounding audio. Its sound profile is a bit bass-heavy which adds punch and thump to the music without making the vocals and lead instruments more powerful. These headphones are good for listening to different types of music.
If you’re looking for high-quality wireless headphones with active sound-canceling features, we highly recommend the JBL Tune 760NC. Aside from high-quality audio, it is comfortable to wear and has convenient controls. With that, we highly recommend this product.

What do we need to work?
But while the cost of a pair of over-ear noise-canceling headphones isn’t bad, the feature set seems significantly less impressive. Simply put, JBL’s Tune 760NC is basic noise canceling headphones with a lot of emptiness added. These days, that’s not enough.
You won’t find ambient mode here, which is one of the expected extras that often goes hand in hand with noise cancellation modes, as it means the headphone maker has to turn on the mics to hear you from outside. The world as you listen to your music. It is also on earphones that do not have the sound cancellation feature, probably because the demand for this feature is so high.
Although it is missing work on the JBL Tune 760NC, the only way to listen through headphones is a little old school and pull it down. It’s not quite the same.
You won’t even get any app support for the Tune 760NC, the pair refuse to register with the JBL app, meaning there’s no way to customize them. These headphones are the same, with no additional application controls, no equalizer settings and no change of buttons. It’s almost like a barbell: you get buttons on your headphones, but nothing else. You don’t even get a travel case.
Dolby Atmos does not work well?,
And if you’re planning on listening to Dolby Atmos with these headphones, paradise is forbidden, because while it works technically, we found that space audio technology completely blew out the mix while listening to them. It’s an example where headphones just won’t work well, so if you use Apple Music maybe turn it off.
JBL gives you the ability to plug a cable into the 760NC, if you want to plug in an old school device, or maybe an arm-rest or screen while you’re flying, it’s easy, but the catch here is that it’s not standard 3.5mm. 3.5mm plug, but less common 2.5mm to 3.5mm option. Granted, these aren’t as rare as before, but it’s still surprising to see JBL pushes that aren’t quite standard when 3.5mm at each end is an easy choice.The
