The JBL Live Pro+ TWS is a great pair of wireless earbuds. It features satisfying bass and great battery life, while also being comfortable to wear. My only complaints are that the touch controls are a tad too sensitive and there's no button on the case to initiate Bluetooth pairing with another device easily.
- 11mm drivers
- Bluetooth 5.0
As mentioned, the Live Pro+ is comfortable to wear. Simply put it in your ear, then twist it so that it rests in the crook of your ear. It comes with a bunch of different-sized tips for you to find the right fit. The JBL My Headphones app comes with a test that checks to see if you have the right fit, too. I do note that the earbuds have to be in a specific position for them to seat correctly, else the app will tell you to try adjusting. Another thing to note is that pairing another Bluetooth device requires you to tap and tap and hold the earphone.
Audio quality is smashingly good. Bass is very strong, but never feels overpowering. If you fancy a lot of bass in your music, the Live Pro+ is suitable. That's not to say the mids and highs are left out. There's plenty of clarity in the vocals, but the mids can feel just a bit soft when the bass and vocal are playing. Honestly, the overall sound can feel like it's coming too aggressively at you for pop tracks. But I actually quite like how it sounds in classical tracks — there's a feeling of lightness that does the trick.
Active noise cancelling works fine, and is quite capable in handling wind noise, too. It doesn't feel too overwhelming and there's none of that unbearable pressure that you sometimes expect from ANC in-ears. You can also change it to be more aggressive — such as when you are on a plane. There are gesture controls you can use with both earbuds, and if you forget you can check the app. Because the controls are at the sides, you may accidentally trigger them while picking up the earbuds or when putting them in your ear. Battery life is rated for 7 hours with ANC off, with another 21 hours from the case. In my real world test, I easily got over 6 hours with ANC on.
