If you touch the JBL's logo on the left ear cup for two seconds or hold the middle button for two seconds, you can activate voice assistant (either Google Assistant or Alexa). here), that we get rid off the annoying cable connecting the headphones with the DAC, or PC, or phone. They also used high-quality cushioning materials to minimize the vibration of the body, thus reducing the sound leakage by more than 90%. For wired pairs, the focus is on the strength of the joint between the headphones and the cable, as this is where many cheaper wired headphones fail. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
There's also a smart audio mode advertised to improve your audio latency based on what you're doing. Ambient Aware technology boosts surrounding noise for added safety, while TalkThru reduces the volume of music and amplifies voices, so you can talk while wearing your headphones. Out-of-the-box, they have a neutral sound profile with a bit of extra thump and rumble, which is suitable for lots of different audio content. What's more, it's disappointing that when users are working out at the gym, the music suddenly pauses, preventing them from concentrating.There is a question what will happen after the battery lifetime ends, because there is no chance for a simple, user friendly battery replacement.

With VoiceAware you can control the amount of mic input routed back into your earbuds and choose how much to hear of your own voice. We rate sound quality using a professional panel of five expert listeners with a range of ages and musical tastes. Still, wireless operation is limited by the electronics used in the headphone and by the low operating battery voltage.

They also have a comfortable fit, though some users may find they feel a bit tight and fatiguing over a long workday. Our expert listening panel and lab professionals assess how well the headphones prevent sound leaking out to their surroundings.
Furthermore, the available Bluetooth profiles on the Live 460NC are the HFP (Hands Free Profile), the A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) and the AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile). The constant pause and having to play during sets or while running makes my workouts unenjoyable in the gym because of how frustrating the fight to keep music on is.
