From the outside, the JBL Everest Elite 700 doesn’t have too much going on. It has a clean design and unassuming façade that looks much like any of the outfit’s various headphones. Underneath the exterior, though, it houses some sophisticated talents.
Like many headphones today, it comes with noise-canceling tech that allows it to block out ambient sound, enabling a more immersive listening experience. Unlike them, it combines that with the ability to control the amount of noise you let in, allowing you to retain awareness of your surroundings, even while listening to loud music all day.
The flagship of the line, the JBL Everest Elite combines the NXTGen Active Noise Cancelling with the outfit’s vaunted Pro Audio sound, providing the same dynamic acoustic experience their products have delivered in the last 70 years. It can automatically adjust the headphone’s sound profile based on what music is playing, ensuring you enjoy the cleanest, most authentic version with just the push of a button, along with sculpted ear cushions for a comfortable and ergonomic fit. Other details include 40mm drivers, Bluetooth 4.1 for low-power wireless transmission, a built-in mic with echo cancellation for hands-free calls, an 850mAh battery rated at 15 hours of playback, and an auto-shutoff feature that kills all power when no music is streaming. It also comes with an accompanying app that you can use to adjust a variety of settings.
Available now, the JBL Everest Elite 700 is priced at $299.95.
