While its noise-canceling feature and comfort level aren't quite on par with competing models from Bose and Sony, its sound measures up well and it's worth considering if you don't want to spend $300 or more on a noise-canceling headphone.

    The JBL Live 650BTNC has impressive sound and a comfortable fit while costing less than its premium rivals. The design seems sturdy and it folds up to fit in an included canvas pouch. It supports Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa with a button press.

    The noise cancelation isn't as good as Sony's or Bose's.

The JBL Live 650BTNC headphones deliver powerful audio performance and average noise cancellation in a wireless design that also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

    Powerful bass depth. Adjustable EQ. Alexa and Google Assistant support. Can be used in wireless or wired modes. Excellent mic clarity.

Decent for mixed usage. The JBL Live 650 BTNC have an accurate sound profile with an overemphasized bass which will be better suited for bass-heavy genres. Also, their isolation performance is okay, and they can be used for commuting as well.

    Exceptional wireless range., Good audio reproduction., Comfortable and durable build.

    Bulky design., Sub-par microphone for calls.

I’ve long been a fan of JBL’s headphones. They’re well priced, sound great and offer the features many of us most want. The JBL LIVE 650BTNC is no exception. For under $200 you get excellent sound, effective noise cancellation, and access to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.

The JBL Live 650BTNC is one of the headphone models that offer the best sounds.It has impressive dynamics and we really like that we were able to hear the bass which was heavy and loud, but does not overpower the mids and highs.
