■Advanced personalization function that allows you to create a sound experience that suits you
Compatible with all new menus of the dedicated app “JBL Headphones”, and has even more personalized functions that can be customized to your liking. The newly introduced “Personi-Fi 2.0” performs more precise sound correction by measuring measurement points in each of 10 bands according to the individual’s hearing characteristics such as age, gender, hearing experience level, etc., making it perfect for the user. provides the sound of It also supports a “personal sound amplification function” that amplifies surrounding environmental sounds by 15 to 20 dB. By reinforcing the surrounding conversational sounds and adjusting the left-right balance, it also plays the role of an electronic hearing aid that supports hearing.

■Achieve absolute sound quality with high-performance sound technology that supports high-resolution
This model has obtained Hi-Res Audio certification (when connected by wire). High-resolution sound sources have a much larger amount of information than conventional CD sound sources, and can reproduce every detail of the sound in high definition, allowing you to easily enjoy higher-resolution, more realistic sound.
In addition, it is equipped with a 40mm diameter driver that uses PU (polyurethane) and LCP (liquid crystal polymer) diaphragms, which are lightweight yet highly rigid materials. In addition to LCP material, PU material is also used to achieve JBL’s professional sound, which is clearer especially in the mid and high frequencies. The high-strength and high-hardness LCP material reduces unnecessary sound distortion, so you can experience good overall balance and high resolution from mid-high to high frequencies.
Furthermore, it is packed with JBL’s signature sound technologies, including the proprietary “JBL Spatial Sound” technology and high-fidelity equalization that covers both low and high frequencies even at low volumes that won’t put strain on your ears. You can experience a new level of absolute sound quality not only for music but also for watching videos and other usage scenarios.

Equipped with a “real-time correction” function that automatically detects sound leakage from the main unit caused by external physical factors such as head movements and glasses, and corrects the noise canceling level in real time. By constantly monitoring surrounding noise components and adjusting the frequency band and degree of noise canceling, you can immerse yourself in music and videos in
high-quality silence in any situation. When the real-time correction function is off, you can adjust the noise canceling effect in 7 levels from the “JBL Headphones” app depending on the surrounding situation and your preferences. Compared to the previous model “TOUR ONE”, the noise canceling level has been improved by about 3 times in the mid-range sound range, which humans are most sensitive to hearing, such as the sound of cars running and people talking in restaurants. This allows you to immerse yourself in your own space in any everyday scene, giving you deeper concentration.

In place of the traditional Bluetooth audio standard (Classic Audio) that has been in use for a long time, we plan to support the next generation LE Audio, which has been redefined by Bluetooth SIG. LE Audio’s new codec LC3 is a high-performance, low-power audio codec that delivers high-quality audio even at low bit rates. In addition, the LC3+ codec implements a function that enables high-resolution audio transmission, so you can expect stable calls and high-quality sound, and it is prepared to be compatible with future software updates as soon as possible.
*High-Res wireless compatibility for this product is undecided. ■ Equipped with a full range of functions that meet all needs from private to business
This model is equipped with many functions that make it easy to use not only in private situations but also in business situations. Equipped with a new “multipoint” feature that was not present in the previous model, it is now possible to connect to two Bluetooth devices at the same time and switch smoothly. While connecting to a smartphone or other device playing music via Bluetooth, you can also pair it with one other device such as a desktop or tablet, so you can use it with confidence even when you receive a call or have an online meeting. It is also equipped with a “smart talk function” that uses an advanced built-in voice recognition algorithm to respond to the user’s voice and automatically activate talk-through. Music and noise canceling automatically resume when the conversation ends, so this model supports you even when someone suddenly speaks to you or when your hands are occupied and you can’t operate the device.
