Authenticity Just Got A New Look.
In a world that yearns for something different ? for an edgy, stylish headphone – we went ahead and took a headlong plunge into authenticity. That?s where the style and daredevil spirit of our new Synchros S500 headphone comes from: pure originality. Picture a soft-touch headphone fused with a steel headband that?s both lightweight and durable. Now, imagine your ears coming into contact with the premium leather ear cushions on either end. There you go. That?s the spirit. Introducing the S500 Stereo Headphone from JBL.
Propriety LiveStage DSP – A Concert In Your Ears
LiveStage represents a breakthrough in acoustic research. Using advanced, binaural digital signal processing, LiveStage recreates the sense of spatial presence that you feel when listening to loudspeakers in a room, overcoming the in-the-head and somewhat ?dead? feeling of typical headphone reproduction.
To recreate the Pro Audio experience, we first had to define it: enter the JBL LSR 6332 loudspeaker. Harmonious, complex and truly lifelike, we sought to recreate their awe-inspiring listening experience within the Synchros series of headphones. JBL engineers painstakingly measured the LSR 6332?s acoustic profile, and leveraging decades of audio engineering expertise, translated it to a unique headphone listening experience ? ready for the most diverse and demanding of playlists.
Unrivaled Pro-Audio Purity
PureBass performance is much more than a tag-line, it?s a philosophy. Focusing on the full audio spectrum, not just the low end, the S500 delivers a balanced audio experience with amazing clarity, and deep powerful bass – enjoy dynamic sound with clear separation of notes, without the boomy, muddy sound found in some other popular headphones.
Don?t Sweat The Batteries
One key thing almost every other powered headphone lacks is the power to sound good even when the battery power runs out. The S500 uses two ?AAA? batteries to deliver 20 hours of enhanced listening with LiveStage technology, but it also features a Passive playback mode to keep the music going even when the battery is dead. Unlike other powered headphones, the S500 is designed to sound great in passive mode, so even though the benefit of LiveStage technology is inactive without power, your music will still come through loud and clear.
