SYNCHROS S700 JBL
JBL’s flagship headphones stand out from the plastic crowd, backed with die-cast aluminium and a steel band across the top. They don’t fold, but the earpads twist flat so they fit into a substantial carry case. The headphones are powered by 50mm drivers and give a full, bass-heavy sound. They come with a choice of cables: one with an Apple remote and one without. Its digital sound processing mode gives a greater “being there” sound, although the effect varies track to track. The rechargeable battery gives 28 hours of enhanced Live-Stage DSP mode, but the headphones are still impressive even when out of power.
