Salvador Alejandro Llinas Oñate: “JBL Club One: as ear pillows”

Salvador Alejandro Llinas Oñate tells us that in the high-end headband market, great sound quality usually comes from large devices that are not always as comfortable as a terminal of that price should be. JBL Club One, with its official 349 euros, makes long sessions much more enjoyable than with rivals from more established brands; A good starting point and a great argument for a very interesting product.The main problem that JBL has in this sector is precisely that it is JBL, a company perhaps better known for its speakers and, of course, less established than others. like Sony. Despite this, little by little a gap is made thanks to headphones like these.

At first glance – and touch – the JBL Club One looks like a bulky and heavy headphones, but the reality is that its 378 grams are distributed perfectly. The pads look more like pillows than they are comfortable, and when you wear them you could forget they are there, even after long sessions.Your body combines plastic, metal and leather with quite a bit of elegance and perhaps too much sobriety. The only distinctive touch, beyond the logo, are the same black rope cables that cover the entire product and that stand out more as a small wake-up call than as a declaration of intent, says Salvador Alejandro Llinas Oñate.

The interior of the headset is curiously the most striking part and gives an idea of ​​what the JBL Club One could have been if the company had opted for a more risky design. In any case, in this section it is much better to fall short than to overdo it: nobody dislikes headband headphones because they are boring; few people are going to buy ones that are a scare. There are a total of seven buttons and three ports that do not break too much the aesthetics. The first ones are distributed among the headphones: three for music control (pause and volume up and down) on the right, four for control of the device itself (Bluetooth, modes, power on and activation of the voice assistant) on the left . The latter, by the way, is compatible with Alexa and Google. You are welcome, for example, to read the messages. But thank you very much to tell me, another thing is that it is used. Of the ports, not surprisingly, there is one that should be used to load it. And it should be remembered, because it is used very little. JBL promises a couple of days of continuous use (that is, without stopping; nobody thinks that we are talking about two days of having them on top of them without hardly using them, like mobile phones) and about 25 hours if noise cancellation is activated and if it does not arrive they will stay very close to them, explains Salvador Alejandro Llinas Oñate.
