JBL Live Free Noise Cancelling True Wireless In-Ear Headphones - Blue is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a great start I've had these about 2 weeks and in that time I have never had both buds work at the same time. I've not been able to make any adjustments to any settings. The phone calls I have taken using the buds have not been great, with most people I am talking to asking me to repeat myself as they "couldn't quite hear". Although I have happily had them in my ears as they are comfortable to use and light so I don't feel like I have something sat in my ear. The case they came in is brilliant, I have had other buds that kept falling out their case as it was just a flimsy box, but this case closes securely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Headphones So the packaging and presentation is pretty nice and feels like some effort was put into that. The usb-c charging port is a plus but the included cable is so short, that the case is hanging in the air when charging it. You can still use your headphones while charging the case, which is pretty cool. The magnetic closing mechanism on the case is strong, an the headphones themself also click in magnetically. No issues with that. The form of the headphones took me some time to get used to, but the hold in the ear is good even when running or jumping. Sound quality is fine for me but hard to describe. Overall solid product, but a bit too expensive for the sound quality in my opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would not buy them again I was chosen to test these buds for some weeks. When i had the box in my hands the first time, I really liked the packaging. It's designed nice and in a high quality. The more I was disappointed when I tried them in my ears the first time. The sound was not as I imagined it to be. Bass was missing, and treble was too much. I tried some of the other sizes, but it didnt get better. The result was, that I didnt really use these buds during the testing time. Anyways, the app is very good. The design is great, all features you need are included and found easily. All in all: maybe it's just me, but i was kind of disappointed of the product, since I only had good experiences with JBL.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings This is the first time I have wireless earbuds. I have slightly smaller ears than the next woman. My biggest issue is, it's hard to get them to stay in my ears without falling out. This is with all the adjustments of changing the cups and the ring thing. Thus I'm not getting the full effect of the sound quality and features (noise cancelling, etc.) of the bud. I do like the feature of only wearing one bud and having the functionality. I frequently only wear one for safety while running and other places. If I could get them to stay in my ear on a consistent basis, they would probably be awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow These were easy to use comfortable and sound is amazing. The charge lasts a good amount of time too. I found the design a little bigger than I’m used too but they stayed put in my ear through gym and running. I found the clarity of music very wonderful. The noise cancellation worked brilliantly in a busy area with traffic they cut out the background hum and allowed the music to sound as it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm impressed with these buds I recently bought the jbl live nc+ and the app make changes by itself. If i choose a sound profile and close the app next time when i open it the app shows another sound profile active. Please solve that because i really like these buds, decent anc, deep bass and very loud headphones. I'm happy with them considering the price paid but please fix the app.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY UNTIL YOU READ THIS!!! I'm not writing a bad review on these headphones because the truth is that they are awesome, light weight, and work really well through Bluetooth from a fair distance but.... I read reviews where people said "jbl pure bass" is the same as "jbl signature sound" I promise you IT ISN'T. I love bass, always have even in my cars with subs. But these are not bass material. I had some other jbls before I bought these and those other ones said "pure bass" I trusted the comments and got these that don't say "pure bass" and I couldn't be more disappointed with my purchase. I turned my bass on the equalizer all the way up and ZERO BASS compared to my first JBL purchase. Quality sound these are good, not bass material at all though

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product I bought this before couple of weeks, the product is amazing for listening to music and the features are really good. Trustable product but there is a small problem while making audio call through the headphones, the opposite person on call can't hear my voice, because the headphones letting more outdoor noise of my surroundings even a slow wind. So the opposite person can't hear my voice anymore. The reason is noise cancellation is not proper in this headphones.

Charging case lights won’t turn off when earbuds are in

Asked by: Bjimp
You may try resetting the JBL Live Free NC +TWS by double-tapping the button on the right earbud, then on the third tap - press and hold the button for more than 2 seconds. This restores the earbuds to the factory defaults. If you have more questions, our customer support could help you: https://bit.ly/36JTBlN

My earbuds will not connect with my PC. Is there a tutorial to connect them?

Asked by: MrChickenNugg
Thanks for reaching out. In most cases when a PC has issues connecting to a Bluetooth device (Portable speaker, Headphones, Active speakers), it's caused by your Computer's Bluetooth driver (software). Always get the latest driver version available for your Computer/PC/Laptop. To download the correct driver (software), visit the manufacturer's website of your Computer. They usually have a "Support/Download" section where you can find the correct driver. Otherwise, we advise you to contact their support.

Will the case sense different battery levels in the two earbuds, and charge accordingly? (Do I need to charge them separately? One earbud is inexplicably charged less than the other ... I just bought these, this is the first time I've used them.)

Asked by: SeattleJoe
Thanks for reaching out. It is recommended that you charge both earbuds together. If you have charging problems, the first step is to always clean all contact points, on each earbud and on the charging case. Use a cotton swab with some rubbing alcohol to clean the charging terminals of the headphones. Rotate the swab and scrub lightly on each contact surface, then use a cotton cloth to remove any dust and cotton residue left on the headphones. Wipe the contact pins in the charging case with a clean cotton swab. The swab can be slightly moistened with rubbing alcohol, but it is important that the interior is completely dry before closing the box. Use the cotton cloth and wait for it to dry. Try cleaning the contacts with the eraser at the end of the pencil, the graphite and rubber can help to re-establish charging also. If you're still having issues charging your headphones, you may reach out to JBL Customer Service for technical support and assistance. https://bit.ly/2WocMfi
