The JBL Live 770NC have a weight of 256g, these weigh below 320g, which we consider as the highest average a headphone should weigh for comfort during long use. We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
Detachable cables are cables that have connectors on both ends. One end goes into your headphone earpieces, while the other end is inserted into an audio source. Some new headphones, and not just the expensive ones, are coming with detachable cables, JBL Live 770NC are one of those.
JBL Live 770NC are foldable, which makes them more portable. Foldable headphones are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
Twisted headphone cables can be a great source of annoyance and inconvenience, JBL Live 770NC's cable is designed to minimize tangling. Constant twisting of the cables can also lead to bends in the copper wires, affecting sound quality, or rendering your headphones defective.
Over-ear headphones have larger earpads that fit around your entire ear JBL Live 770NC have a comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This design is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors.
JBL Live 770NC have stereo speakers, what this means is that JBL Live 770NC's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 outside (noise from your surrounding) and adding -1 inside (counter sound within the device) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
JBL Live 770NC allow you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise.
Passive Noise Cancellation uses well-designed ear cups to seal out unwanted noise. This is used for both in-ear earphones and over-ear headphones where the headphone itself will keep surrounding noise out. The JBL Live 770NC sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. JBL Live 770NC's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
High frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device reproduces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it. JBL Live 770NC's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Sound pressure is the average variation in atmospheric pressure caused by the sound, the sound level .i.e how loud something is can be perceived differently by different people so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The sound pressure level, SPL, is the pressure level of a sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Live 770NC's measurement is 100dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. JBL Live 770NC driver unit is 40mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Impedance is the device's resistance to the electromagnetic current, as electricity flows through a conductor, it experiences electrical resistance that counters the flow of current. The resistance of a wire is measured in ohms. JBL Live 770NC's impedance is 32Ohms, the lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
If your headphones play wirelessly, cancel ambient noise, or enhance your listening experience with active features, their battery life will reduce over time. The device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often. JBL Live 770NC's battery life is 65 hours
It takes 3 hours to fully charge the JBL Live 770NC's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the headphones for the first time or when they have been unused for extended periods.
JBL Live 770NC have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging status of your headphones.
A rechargeable battery is a type of electrical battery that can be charged, discharged into a load, and recharged many times, as opposed to a disposable or primary battery, which is supplied fully charged and discarded after use. JBL Live 770NC's battery can be recharged and used over again.
JBL Live 770NC can be used wirelessly, wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. JBL Live 770NC has a v5.3
JBL Live 770NC support USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power on a single cable. The USB-C plug is now part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets, it features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
JBL Live 770NC support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Bluetooth is a short-range wireless technology standard that is used for exchanging data between fixed and mobile devices over short distances. The JBL Live 770NC can connect at a 10meters distance via Bluetooth or infrared to another device.
JBL Live 770NC have only 2 microphones, more microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
JBL Live 770NC use a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
JBL Live 770NC support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises so that they can still be heard. It’s useful when you want to listen to music but also be aware of what’s happening around you, for example when you’re having a jog but would still want to be able to hear traffic.
JBL Live 770NC support in/on-ear detection, the sensors in the device can detect when they are removed from your ears so that the music is paused, saving battery life and improving your listening experience while at it.
JBL Live 770NC support multipoint, which allows you to link to more Bluetooth devices and switch between them. For example, you can easily switch calls from one device to another without having to manually disconnect and reconnect.
There is a control panel on the JBL Live 770NC body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
JBL Live 770NC can be used as a headset. A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
Carrying headphones without a case, or putting them in bags without a casing can easily put them at risk of getting damaged. The JBL Live 770NC come with their own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
