JBL Tune 500 BT Wireless Headphones

JBL Tune 500BT Review

The JBL Tune 500BT wireless headphone is perfect for people looking to enjoy the best possible audio experience. These cans offer up to 16 hours of battery life with fast charging and excellent bass response you can’t find anywhere else! With an included 3-button remote, 500BT are also compatible with Android or iOS devices, so there’s no need to worry about missing any necessary phone calls.


JBL has created the wireless version of their popular on-ear headphones, and because they are designed similarly to the wired versions, users can enjoy a whole new experience. In addition, the Bluetooth technology is advanced enough that people who may have had trouble with cables in the past will not be bothered by it anymore!

With this design, there’s no need for an adapter or cable to connect your phone anymore, just wirelessly connect them right into your JBL Tune 500BT headphone via Bluetooth and you’re ready to go!

The hanger and shells of JBL Tune 500BT are softly padded with a firm hold to keep your ear comfortable, even when you wear them for long periods. The on-ear headphones work well despite the emphasis mainly being made out of plastic–metal reinforcements provide durability and will last forever!

The 300mAh lithium-ion battery allows for up to 16 hours of operation. The battery level is displayed on your connecting device, such as an iPhone. Quick charging features allow one hour of use after five minutes on a charge with their fast charger function; however, it takes two hours using the included USB cable.

The JBL Tune 500BT headphone is wireless, but it does not have an audio input. As a result, there is no possibility of wired use. I was disappointed to find out that these headphones did not have an audio input. I would have preferred the inclusion of this to be used as a wired option, but there is no such thing here.

Device Control

Holding down the power button turns the JBL Tune 500BT on and puts it into pairing mode. As soon as the connection is established, the central button can control start/stop functions and accept and end telephone calls.

To reject or ignore an incoming call, keep the button pressed. For volume control, separate plus and minus buttons are available for track navigation. To do this, press and hold down the plus button to jump forward if you want more of a song’s tracks in order. While holding it down will make your music louder instead.

The wireless distance doesn’t typically range much more than a few meters for Bluetooth headphones. That’s why we were surprised by how far you could go with these little guys. You can easily have your phone in one room and walk into another without losing signal strength–an excellent way to keep yourself productive when studying or working from home.

The JBL tune 500bt supported the Bluetooth 4.1 standard and offered stable ranges of about ten meters which is pretty respectable for such small devices that connect wirelessly via Bluetooth. That is especially surprising given how user-friendly pairing them up felt like (you don’t need any passwords!)

With the JBL Tune 500BT, you can listen to your favourite tunes wirelessly and in high resolution. The first time pairing is easy – hold down the power button of the JBL Tune 500BT until it flashes for 2 seconds, then find them on your phone’s Bluetooth list.

Music, movies, and your phone calls–you’ll never have to choose just one with these nifty headphones. Equipped with a multipoint connection function, the 500BT can be paired up to two devices at once, so you can multitask without missing anything on either device.

For example, you can watch movies, music videos, or other content on your tablet while using another phone. In addition, the multipoint connection function allows you to be notified of incoming calls without missing any, even if both devices are being used simultaneously.

Just imagine the freedom of being able to dance and shake your head around without worrying about knocking over something fragile or having a cord whip you in the face! The best part is that with Bluetooth headphones, there are no annoying wires. Instead, you’ll get crystal clear sounds so unique you might not want to take them off at all.

Bluetooth headphones offer tons of benefits for phone users. They’re wireless, have excellent quality audio (you won’t be disappointed), and don’t tangle up like pesky cables can do. They also work wonderfully when watching videos on smartphones because it ensures media isn’t synced incorrectly.

In short, the JBL Tune 500BT headset performs poorly when it comes to microphones. You can’t have good noise cancellation if you’re in a loud place; however, Siri and Google Now are still usable with this device because of its clever design that separates them from your ear.

Noise Isolation

The JBL Tune 500BT headphones offer a tight grip, thanks to their closed-back earcups. That means that when you listen at half volume in your quiet room, others will still be able to hear what song is playing, even if it’s barely audible for them.

But once you take these on-ear headphones out into a loud gymnasium or other noisy places with lots of ambient noise, people around won’t know which songs they’re listening to because these sturdy pairs drown out all external sounds.


The plastics are lower than more expensive headphones, at least when you hold the JBL Tune 500BT bluetoothe heaphones in your hands. Up close, they do look better than the cheaper ones, but from afar, not too many people can tell that these don’t cost as much money because of how good they look up close or far away, for that matter.

The JBL TUNE 500BT is an excellent choice for comfortable headphones. They are lightweight and on-ear rather than over the ear, which can be bulky and uncomfortable, but these headphones still pack some serious sound without weighing you down, as many others do.

The clamping force offers stability while cushioned by soft leather foam pads with faux velvet lining to make them even comfier! Even though they’re not made of durable vinyl or anything that will stand up against scratches from your fingernails (a common problem among fabric-covered ones), it doesn’t hinder their comfort – in fact, as soon as those ears cups get warm enough, they feel like heaven.

The JBL Tune 500BT headphone is designed for fitness and everyday use. They’re perfect for the gym or a workout at home, not to mention they make your time on the elliptical more fun! The clamping force is solid yet comfortable enough that you don’t have to worry about them slipping off while sweating in those intense gym sessions with friends.

For even bigger heads like mine, these earphones comfortably fit without falling out no matter what type of movement I am doing- from running up hills swiftly to stretching my arms toward the sky during a yoga class. With swiveling cups explicitly intended for any head shape, it’s impossible not to find comfort wearing this product as well as sound quality when listening through its noise-canceling features, which result in minimal.

Sound Performance

The Tune 500 Bluetooth headphone provides bass-intensive listening pleasure and comes with a lightweight design and comfortable fit. These features allow you to get the most out of your workout without risking any discomfort or distraction.

The new model offers an upgrade in sound quality compared to previous models – now including Bluetooth functionality. The great thing about these is that they’re designed so well that it doesn’t matter what activity you are doing while wearing them because they won’t fall out during sudden movements or jostles.

Despite the lower frequencies, the JBL Tune 500BT on-ear headphone has a clear sound image and well-structured stereo. Due to this versatility, they are great for those that match their listening habits, but bass-driven music styles such as hip hop or R&B will come alive with high-quality audio so you can enjoy your favorite tunes!

The JBL TUNE 500BT offers a powerful and recognizable bass sound. These are true bass-oriented Bluetooth headphones. Their specific sound signature results from actions aimed at making the music more attractive by significantly boosting the lower range, which gives them a good quality of soft tones for listeners to enjoy.

Bass is a bit sloppy, messy, and overflowing, but that’s because they’re made in such as way so you can truly experience these lows without any drawbacks or distortion, even if it does take some time getting used to when listening with this particular headphone model. There may be other models out there that do a better job reproducing those deep notes than these! However, on the flip side, I get relatively fast attacks with decisive rhythmic accents.

When it comes to the best headphones for modern music, JBL TUNE 500BT tops them all with its Pure Bass technology. These high-quality wireless sports earbuds offer excellent bass and articulation that is not blurred by other sounds in your environment like traffic or wind noise while running outside on a busy city street.

The result? You’ll hear intense tones without any interference from background noises when listening to genres of electronic music such as R&B remixed songs, hip hop remixes, or throwbacks hits you know right off the bat are going straight into your workout playlist.

Music is full of highs, lows, and mids. It’s this perfect balance between these three sounds that the Tune 500BT has mastered so well. In addition, the midrange can be slightly boosted to give it even more power without interfering with any other frequency ranges in your favorite songs.

While JBL Tune 500BT wireless headphones can also keeping a balanced harmonic tone for an authentic performance, you’ll love hearing time after time.

The treble is present all the time. Details are clear and precise. The JBL Tune 500BT has a detail-oriented sound perfect for an upbeat playlist or contemporary music with electronic bass lines like modern pop songs. These headphones also have plenty of clarity in the mids to make them work well on jazz and classical recordings – although they’re not made for those genres specifically.


The JBL TUNE 500BT is an excellent pair of wireless headphones for those looking to upgrade their music listening experience. With its durability, portability and high-quality sound, these headphones can satisfy most listeners in the same price range.

Control features are minimal and just right, with the perfect number of buttons. Bluetooth connectivity is quite handy, making it an excellent choice for smartphones or other Bluetooth-enabled music devices but not computers.

So, if you’re looking for a headset with powerful basses and beautiful music reproduction but don’t want to spend the extra cash on premium features, this is your best bet. The JBL TUNE 500BT Bluetooth wireless headphone has it all: great trendy design without being too flashy; high-quality noise cancellation systems – plus an unbeatable price tag.

What Buyers Say About JBL Tune 500BT?

Got this as a replacement for my AirPods. Since my son took my AirPods I need a replacement. But I didn’t want to spend too much since I don’t use AirPods that much. I just needed a headphone or earphone to listen to music and podcasts. I knew JBL was a well-known brand but I was a little bit skeptical about the low price tag. Since the return is free for Prime members, I decided to give it a try. As soon as I received the package, I fully charged the JBL Tune 500BT. The Bluetooth connection was very easy. And the sound quality was just WOW. The battery life is also amazing! My son is asking to switch headphones but NOPE! Not this time 🙂 Highly recommend.

I’ve been a longtime lover of JBL products. From their BT portable speakers to their high end home audio loudspeakers. I’m the proud owner of some of a little bit of everything they manufacturer because of the quality. Well I just restarted my gym membership & my 1st day I realized I was missing something which would be extremely helpful to remain focused & motivated. My music! As I looked around the gym almost everyone had on some kind electronic headgear.

I work all day in a wash bay washing cars and needed something that could handle some humidity and wear and tear and these are it. The battery of JBL Tune 500BT lasts me a few days. I’ve had these for about few months now and they are holding up well. They don’t really cancel noise. But that’s okay I need to be able to hear around me anyways. I like the folding design for easy storage. The sound is okay. Not top notch 500 buck quality but it’s enjoyable. Just have to eq the settings in your phone. Works perfectly with my iPad or my galaxy note 9.
