JBL Live 400 Wireless On-Ear Headphones - Blue is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones I got these about a week ago and am super happy. The green is subtle (not overpowering but a color!) and really nice. The sound - wow; very impressive. Basically act like noise-cancelling, but the JBL app has an awesome “hear-thru” feature when needed for calls or to be better aware of surroundings. I bought them for work and am astonished by the sound isolation (but the option to hear people when I want to). Favorite part so far has been the battery life - it lasts forever, and I often forget to turn-off. My one quibble may be the tightness. It does get a little uncomfortable after a few hours. But that will give in time, as headsets inevitably loosen from use. Overall - super happy, super impressed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound! Testing the Live 400BT and they sound great! Volume is limited to not blast you out like some other brands. Nice feature for the adjustable EQ and bass is outstanding. Nice features and connectivity to the JBL headphone app. Only down side to these on ear headphones is that they heat up my ears where the over the ear type do not. The over the ear type are more bulky however. These feel like an okay size for the gym and exercise. Only physical concern is the twisting action feels a little flimsy, maybe this twist should be stiffer. My concern is this will be the point of failure from removing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work great I have had these for about a month now. They connect easily to Bluetooth devices. The sound quality is excellent. The talk thru and ambient aware modes are a nice feature especially if you wear them at work. The ambient aware modes does not amplify sounds like the Everest 750s do. The sound is more like normal hearing level. I used these on both Alexa and Google assistant. Activating the feature can be a little difficult but after I used them a few times I got the hang of it. Holding my hand on the earcup seemed to work best. Overall these are a nice headphone for the price. The Google and Alexa feature gives you a nice handsfree feature when you're busy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product & value! I must say, I'm a little biased towards JBL because I've already been so happy with my Flip 4. I finally decided to invest in some noise-canceling headphones for work and wanted something with good sound and battery life that wouldn't break the bank. I think it's safe to say that these headphones have met all my criteria. I would recommend them to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, hearing aid compatible I have struggled all my life with my hearing and wear hearing aids in both ears. This makes it impossible to use buds. Other wired headphones are ok but the sound is not very loud and the cable snaps so easy. So when I found these they are excellent. Connected to my Samsung Mobile A71 no problem. They sit on the ear which means the hearing aid does not feed back. Sound is so loud that I can use them without aids in at all. With aids in I have to actually turn them down. The box is good quality and the headset itself feel good quality. My only gripe is that they are a bit tight, would be nice to have some flexibility in how much they press on the ears. Well done JBL and with a 30 day no quibble return policy. What's not to like.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from JBL Live 400BT The JBL Live 400BT arrived and I was extremely excited to try them since everyone in my family owns a pair. I was first disappointed in the color because I thought they were going to be red instead of a dark orange-red color. They were extremely simple to set up and pair with my phone. Of course being wireless, it was nice to be able to cook, clean, and listen to music. The volume was a little disappointing. I expected them to be quite a bit louder than my daughter’s pair. Overall they are a good investment for the price. Although personally I would prefer something louder. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound! I've had these for about 6 months now! Pros: the sound is really clear and nice, they are just about noise cancelling, the Bluetooth connects very reliably, the battery life is amazing, they fold up nice and small, the connecting cord is a nice fabric one. Cons: They are quite tight on my head and hurt my ears after only an hour or two, and my head is pretty small, so I would recommend the over-ear version unless you only plan to wear them for short amnts of time. Also, the AmbientAware and TalkThru are honestly pretty unnecessary, and I've never once used the voice command. A plus to them being tight is you can work out and even run with them and they stay on.

Can you listen to two sources at once (example a phone via Bluetooth and a ps4 through 3.5mm connector)?

Asked by: Dibbs
Our Live 400BT has multi-point technology, you can pair the headphones with up to two devices, such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, and easily switch between the two when you want but you can only use one source at a time. Bluetooth and aux cannot be used at the same time. To learn more about the Live 400BT kindly visit : https://bit.ly/34gfE2m

Does the cord have a mic? And if my daughter connects the Aux cord to her chromebook will she be able to speak? (she can't connect to her school laptop with bluetooth, so I want to make sure if she plugs these in she will be able to hear and speak)?

Asked by: middleschoolmom
Hey, just wanted to ask if the mic does work without bluetooth on and connect with the aux as i was planning to use for my pc also

Do these come charged and ready to use out of the box or will they need to be fully charged before initial use? 

Asked by: Adh74
The initial charge varies but you can just charge it for 2 hours to make it full and play music with it.

My headphones power themselves back on after turning them off.  I have tried the recommended resets but it does not fix this problem. They only stay off while being charged.  Please help!

Asked by: Dreeds
I have the same problem. Used with Blue Tooth. The headphones only stay off when charging. I have looked at the instruction sheet but have found nothing about it. Factory reset didn't correct it.

Are these noise cancelling?

Asked by: jomama567
Hello, I think the previous answer may be a bit misleading, as these DO have a noise cancellation feature. I have these headphones (JBL 400BT) and they DO have a noise cancelling - there are two different "background noise" / "white noise" sound settings (one sounds a bit like ocean waves, the other like static). The button to control this is on the front right headphone ear, at the front. Works relatively well (But not as well as true noise cancelling).
