Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Expected This High A quality Sound From JBL I have been a JBL fan since the L100 days but never saw them as a top tier sound produce unless you laid out some real cash. I bought these headphones based on price, half expecting to send them back. They are here to stay. I own 22 pairs of headphones from all the best manufacturers and these rank rith at the top of anything I own (I do not own any electrostatic one). Give these a try. You will NOT be diappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The handsome looking s500 chrome. These beautiful cans are awesome. I now have two s500 the slate and now the chromes. They sound fantastic from the highs mids and lows the way music should be heard. Keep up work JBL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Set of Headphones I really like these headphones. They are comfortable as they are an "over the ear design", well built and quite attractive with the chrome finish. They sound quality in the "Livestage" mode is really nice. Smooth spectrum, wide soundstage and deep Bass. Highly recommend them for smart phone music listening of Spotify, Pandora, etc...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from only two minor drawbacks I have been using headset constantly for maybe a week or so. I absolutely love it so far. The removable cables, the carrying case, and the adjustable headphones/head strap are convenient little features. The are extremely comfortable, even with hours of consecutive wearing of these products. The speaker's and microphone's sound quality is outstanding. There are only two drawbacks. There is a sound quality switch that improves the sound. Honestly, it makes it sound like you are at a concert. Everyone that I let listen to the headphones could really hear the improved sound. The difference is easily noticeable. The two problems, though, are that when no sound is playing while the switch is active, there is a quiet humming sound (completely unnoticeable when music is playing, though). Also, according to the manual, the sound improvement only last about 2 hours before the batteries run out (did I mention that it requires batteries to use that feature? For regular use, there is no need for batteries, though).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible. These headphones made me realize that my laptop and cellphone had a sound imbalance that I had noticed over the last 6 years. I think that's testament enough of these headphone's solid quality. Looks are also definitely a plus.

where do the batteries go?

Asked by: flounderiii
The batteries are inside the left ear cup. In order to change the batteries, gently pull the left ear cup forward. You should be able to see the small screw above the JBL symbol in which you will be able to remove to have access to the AAA batteries.
