JBL TUNE 500 Wired On-Ear Headphones - Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped functioning in two weeks While they were working I was impressed with how they performed for their cost, sadly however the headphones stopped working shortly after. The left headphone completely stopped functioning and the right one was noticeably distorted. The headphones stayed within my home and were only used a handful of times. I own other JBL products and they function flawlessly. I am upset that I now have to shell more money out of pocket for what has to be a manufacturing flaw. Mine may just be an exception as others have commented on how much they enjoy them, but I cannot enjoy something that doesn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pair Of Headphones I Ever Bought If the title doesn't sum it up, I don't know what does. As an avid music listener, it was important to have headphones that deliver a quality listening experience, and the Tune 500 did not disappoint. Although comfort does wain after prolonged use, this is probably due to the newness of the product and will wear to a comfortable fit overtime. Overall I can't fault this product, for the price, you're getting a well built pair of headphones with great sound quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For my daughter I've not used them myself as they were bought for my daughter. She loves the colour and apparently they work pretty well because she ignores me far more now even if I scream her name up the stairs to tell her something delicious for tea is waiting on the table for her.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped Working after 7 days Bought these headphones for my husband to wear while at work. They were great until the 7th day and then they were dead. Mailed them back, waiting on a refund. I guess I have to spend a small fortune for good headphones, which I am not about to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy! I got these some time back & they are worth it! Over the head contraptions have never been my favorite. However the price for this name is what attracted me. The sound quality on these is far better than I expected. Delivers great bass notes! The thing I am weary about with these is that my ears will be sore after wearing headphones for a long time, not the case with these though! Solid product! Great price! Well worth it if you’re looking for good quality sound without having to spend too much.

I know nothing about computers or headphones... can someone who plays video games on a laptop use these to listen and talk to their teammates

Are these headphones exactly the same as JBL Tune 500BT in terms of audio quality, drivers, materials, and comfort but only wired instead of Bluetooth? Are there any differences between these models?

Asked by: ribasmudj
Aside from how it is connected via 3.5mm aux. There are no other differences with its Bluetooth counterpart.

Can the T500 wired-on be used on a laptop by plugging into the 3.5mm output audio socket for conference calls (e.g. via skype) using the in-built microphone to speak (i.e. like a headset with a separate microphone attachment)?
