When it comes to noise-cancelling headphones, nothing beats the over-ear JBL LIVE 650BTNC on performance for the price. Not only is the sound harmonious and well balanced, but thanks to Bluetooth 4.2 it can hit those audiophile highs. And there’s little trade-off in sound quality once you switch on the noise-cancelling function, which is where many ANC rivals fall short. The JBL LIVE 650BTNC is available in three colours and utilises advanced materials in its fabric headband and memory-foam pads. Once the battery is fully charged you can enjoy 30 hours’ use without ANC and 20 hours with, and if the battery runs out, just plug in the supplied 120cm cable and begin listening all over again. Furthermore, by simply tapping the ear cup you can turn on the Google voice assistant or Amazon Alexa for hands-free calls.
