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.
