Synchros Chrome Edition is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can feel the bass I first listened to music on my phone with these and they were good. The bass was a little unimpressive since these are pricier headphones I thought. I listened to music on youtube and the headphones sounded good but I started thinking they weren't worth the price. I then listened to some rap through Windows Media Player and WOW. The equalizer made all the difference. The bass from these is subwoofer level. I can feel the drivers vibrating through the headphones! All types of music sound good. Impressive headphones!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Sounds great and very comfortable. Overall quality surpasses much of what I have tried at a similar price range, especially when on sale. I really like that the cable is removable. Now I'm not at the mercy of a bad cable later which was what ultimately made me throw out a previous purchase from a different brand. Also I like that it uses standard batteries. I can now just swap for new ones, rechargeables preferably, instead of seeing shorter charge life as the product gets older.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelivable For The Price I have over 20 pairs of headphones from the best names in the industry. If you had bet me that one of my favorites would be the Synchronus Chromes I would have said you were crazy, I would have been wrong. You would be crazy not to try these. I screwwed up and damged my first pair. No problem for JBL. They handled a replacement as if I had just bought them. Sterllar customer service. I liked them so much I bought the Slate version (same sonics) just in case one pair breaks years from now. Buy these! If you don't like them you can always send them back. You won't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from only two minor drawbacks I have been using headset constantly for maybe a week or so. I absolutely love it so far. The removable cables, the carrying case, and the adjustable headphones/head strap are convenient little features. The are extremely comfortable, even with hours of consecutive wearing of these products. The speaker's and microphone's sound quality is outstanding. There are only two drawbacks. There is a sound quality switch that improves the sound. Honestly, it makes it sound like you are at a concert. Everyone that I let listen to the headphones could really hear the improved sound. The difference is easily noticeable. The two problems, though, are that when no sound is playing while the switch is active, there is a quiet humming sound (completely unnoticeable when music is playing, though). Also, according to the manual, the sound improvement only last about 2 hours before the batteries run out (did I mention that it requires batteries to use that feature? For regular use, there is no need for batteries, though).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Build Quality and Superb Sound! I love these headphones. JBL really did an excellent job. They are the most comfortable headphones that I have used. They sound great. The imaging is encapsulating. My favorite genre that I enjoy is jazz. These capture the art form in all of it is glory and displays the full essence. The build quality is mostly metal with a chrome finish. No regrets on purchasing these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value if purchased on sale. These were $95 on the jbl website and are a good value for that price.Good initial quality and sound. Cables provided are cheap and short, inline microphone is behind loose buttons, so tx audio is very noisy. Recommended, but use a different cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality sound and construction. High quality sound and construction. A++++++++++++++++++++++

Are they Bluetooth accessible or just the jack?

These headphones do not have Bluetooth incorporated, they are wired headphones. They come with 2 cables, 1 is iOS compatible (iPhones, iPod, iPad) and the other cable is universally compatible. JBL has a variety of BT headphones such as the Everest Series, E40BT and E50BT that comparable in price to the Synchros.

Er de her høretelefoner "skole venlig"? Det jeg mener med det er om de kan bruges i klasse uden at forstyre

Asked by: Lukas Bundgaard
Hej, og tak for din henvendelse. JBL Synchros Chrome (som er den samme model som Synchros S500, men med kromfinish) er en lukket hovedtelefon, og afgiver ikke meget lyd til omgivelserne. Men hvis lytteren spiller højt, vil andre i samme rum kunne høre musik, hvis der i øvrigt er stille. Jeg vil mene, at den kan bruges i praksis. Den er også meget behagelig at have på. Dog vil der kunne dannes noget fugt under ørepuderne og i rummet ved øret, hvis man har dem på i flere timer. Der er jo ikke nogen ventilation, og puderne er af proteinlæder, som er en slags kunstprodukt. Så længe den er på lager, kan du købe den i vores netbutik, og der har du 30 dages fuld returret, så du kan prøve i praksis. Jeg håber, dette hjælper.

Is deze hoofdtelefoon geschikt voor aansluiting op stereo installatie?

Asked by: RoodWitAJAXForever
Goedemorgen, Ja, deze hoofdtelefoon kan je gebruiken met een stereo ontvanger. Houdt er wel rekening mee dat de aansluiting 3.5mm is, en dat je hiervoor wellicht een adapter naar 6.3mm nodig hebt. Deze is niet meegeleverd met de Synchros Chrome. Mocht je nog andere vragen hebben, neem dan even contact op met onze klantenservice

Bonjour, Nous vous remercions pour votre question. Vous ne pouvez pas connecter les écouteurs en Bluetooth avec un smartphone. En effet, ils ne disposent pas de la technologie Bluetooth. Afin d'écouter de la musique, il vous faudra utiliser un cable auxiliaire.
