You can expect to get eight hours of listening time with the JBL Tune 230NC buds, which is with active noise cancellation in use; this figure increases to 10 hours with it disabled. If you’re using the buds in ANC mode, a fully charged case delivers 24 hours battery in total, jumping to 30 hours with ANC turned off. JBL estimates that the earphones can last roughly 8 hours with ANC on, with an additional 24 hours in the case. If you turn ANC off, those numbers go up to 10 and 30 hours, respectively, but your results will vary based on your volume levels. App Experience The light hum of air conditioners, ceiling fans, and urban outdoor sounds such as construction equipment and machinery were still audible. However,ANC did help to make music a bit easier to listen to, even at low or moderate volumes. The hear-through mode sounded strangely artificial and it amplified wind sounds unreasonably. I preferred to just take the earphones off for short conversations with someone.

A welcome surprise awaited us in terms of the JBL 230NC’s battery life. The battery life of these earphones in our test was remarkably close to the audacious claims JBL had made. These earphones lasted an incredible seven and a half hours with ANC activated and volume set to 50%. And we are talking about the bis ones, with great SPL reserves, full-bodied punch and surprisingly extensive dynamic range. This overall rich, but by no means boomy or bloated bass underlines the transparent, at the given pricepoint surprisingly differentiated midrange reproduction in conjunction with good high-frequency resolution, which is offered without harshness. It is true that one should not expect a silky smooth high-end flair from the Tune 230NC in terms of voice reproduction and could wish for a tiny bit more clarity. In its class, however, it is undeniably a big hit. In itself, JBL succeeded in creating a decidedly coherent, neutral tonal balance that is hard to beat at this pricepoint. Thus, the Tune 230NC meets all basic needs for a wide variety of musical tastes and applications. Conclusion and alternatives to the JBL Tune 230NC TWS JBL puts a lot of emphasis in marketing on a dynamic and deep bass response. This in technical terms means increased demands on the driver and power amplifier, especially when active noise cancelling (ANC) comes into consideration. Inside the JBL Tune 230NC TWS we find the 6 mm drivers, which should provide enough power reserve to fight external noise. Four mics support the algorithm in calculating the anti-noise, but should also ensure superior speech quality when answering phone calls. In our tests, we found the stated times fairly accurate, with no worrying drop-off in use. An hour of listening with ANC on saw a drop-off of 2-3%, while listening sessions over an hour without ANC saw only a 1% drop-off. Note that you do get the benefit of speed-charging with these buds, which delivers two hours of playtime from a 10-minute charge. As such, a fully charged case will mean it actually takes some time to get down to 0% battery.Battery status of both the earbuds and the reserve case can be monitored in the app, as well as it is offering the Bluetooth mode to be selected. Thus, either maximum data rate and thus the potential music quality can be prioritized, but optionally also realiability or the low-latency, which is useful for games and videos.

Ambient Aware and TalkThru modes worked well, but we didn't find much of a difference between the two. You can hear voices loud and clear in both modes without removing the earpieces. Adjustable Audio JBL Tune Flex has a battery life of up to 8 hours on a single charge and an additional 24 hours with the charging case. Additionally, they offer Dual Connect, allowing you to connect with either one or both earbuds depending on your preference. Priced at Rs. 5,999 in India, the JBL Tune 230NC features active noise cancellation, app support, and the promise of good battery life, all at a fairly competitive price. Does this headset have enough to take on strong competition in this segment from the likes of the OnePlus Buds Z2 and Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro? Find out in this review. JBL did not skimp on the controls, on the contrary: The matching app My JBL Headphones offers an attractive bunch of features, such as a 10-band graphic EQ. This is calling for quite some experience, so ask a befriended recording engineer if necessary. Or go for the preset curves for jazz, vocal, bass, club and studio. However, you can also save your own EQ presets. When the buds aren’t in use, you can drop them into the charging case. It’s neither the smallest you’ll find, nor particularly good-looking. Nevertheless, the flip lid does at least ensure they’re secure and covered, and they slot satisfyingly in place inside. A series of LED lights on the front of the case indicates the battery status of the buds, plus you’ll find a USB-C port around the rear for when it’s time to charge.

Review: Soundcore Motion 300 by Anker

True wireless ear buds are increasingly popular, and getting more and more affordable. Offering excellent sound quality and being produced by renowned brands, there is a lot of competition well under 100 dollars. With one exception: models offering a serious active noise cancelling technology are still more expensive. The JBL Tune 230NC TWS is promised to be a dealbreaker offering all key features of the more expensive models without a sacrifice in terms of sound quality. On top you get an impressive battery life of up to 10 hours without and 40 hours with recharging. We tested the built-in mic using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone and could easily understand every word we recorded. Bluetooth audio artifacts that sometimes fuzz up a mic signal are minimally present here, and, on a clear cell signal, those on the other end should have no trouble understanding you. Not a Standout, But Solid The JBL Tune 230NC true wireless headset uses the JBL Headphones app (available on Android and iOS) for customisation and control of the earphones. You can change the touch controls, choose between various equaliser presets or set a custom one, switch between ANC and ambient sound modes, view the battery levels of the earpieces and charging case, and even power off the earpieces, all from the app. Double tap: Turns 'TalkThru' on and off. This feature lowers your media's volume and enables 'Ambient Sound Control' so that you can have conversations.

The noise-cancelling can also be turned off if necessary or switched to transparency mode, which makes it easier to follow announcements from the outside world or conversations without taking the earbuds out. Of course, both buds have to fit tightly to the ear canal, and three different sized adaptors should ensure that for most ears. Selected the right one is supported by the free JBL My Headphones app from JBL. The JBL Tune 230NC has active noise cancellation, and works with the JBL Headphones app on iOS and Android The JBL Tune 230NC headset has 6mm dynamic drivers with a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz. It uses Bluetooth 5.2 for connectivity, with support for the SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs. There is active noise cancellation and Google Fast Pair support on the headset. JBL Tune 230NC performance and battery life Active noise cancellation onaffordable TWS earphones isn't new, and brands such as Realme, Oppo, and OnePlus have recently launched some very good options with this feature. Some ofmore established audio brands have been a bit slow to deliver similar products in this segment, but one in particular wants to change that. JBL recently launched two new affordable true wireless headsets, the Tune 130NC and the Tune 230NC.

JBL Tune 230NC performance and battery life

True wireless earphones, particularly affordable and mid-range options, have seen big improvements in recent months when it comes to sound quality and ANC performance. The JBL Tune 230NC does manage to compete against options from brands such as OnePlus and Oppo, with decent soundand functional active noise cancellation. In addition, the two touch surfaces on the earbuds can be assigned various functions. However, you have to get used to the position of the sensitive sensors and the differentiation of several commands, and still might end up with a misfunction. After all, the functions can not only be displayed in the My JBL Headphones app, but also configured according to individual needs. Single tap: Cycles between ANC on, 'Ambient Sound Control', which allows you to better hear your environment without taking the headphones out of your ears, and off, which turns off both ANC and Ambient Sound Control.
