Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Noise Cancelling Headphones Bought these headphones during holiday specials and have no regrets. Not only are the sounds crisp and clear but the noise canceling aspects are outstanding. This 70 year old can clearly hear the music and speech despite some old age hearing loss. Headphones are well padded and comfortable for extended listening. Headphones easily hooked up to my Samsung phone. Placement of buttons are good and took little time to get used to them. Must confess that I am having trouble getting the ap to work but working on it. Very happy with these JBL 950 headphones!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Quality! I have been using these for a couple of weeks now and I am loving them so far! They are really comfortable to wear, the sound quality is amazing. I have been listing to podcasts for University and also others and not been able to hear anything else with the noise cancelling. I use them before I go to sleep at night to listen to relaxing music or do some mediation to help me sleep and my partner has not been able to hear it. Only downside is the case, I feel it maybe should have been slightly bigger as I'm worried the zip will go soon. Apart from that I'm loving them so far! :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound all else needs work This is a decent sounding set with lots of options and features. However there are critical problems with comfort, usability, and durability. There is lots to love here but in the end there are some things that make it hard to recommend. Starting off with sound this is the best part of these headphones. I love the signature JBL sound and this pair does not disappoint with nice deep bass that punches clean and tight, full mids letting all those vocals really shine, and lastly great detail in the highs without showing any fatigue. Also if you ever do not like the sound or just prefer a little tweak there is the JBL headphone app with a full EQ letting you change up the headphones in any way you feel. Lastly there it the bass boost button, and this is one thing that I would suggest people stay away from. Go ahead and give it a try but you will quickly see that this was not a great implementation. The boost seems to go to a certain frequency and quickly fall off not allowing for any proper blend into the mids. Along with this the bass boost is much too high, so much so that it will actually clip on certain songs of mine and ruins that tight punch you get from the original tuning. Next the ANC, talk-thru and ambient aware options. Make sure and update the firmware when you first get the headphones as the ANC and other options have significant fixes with this firmware. I still think that they need some work especially the talk-thru but it is much better. The talk-thru makes everything sound like people are talking through a mic in an empty hall with all sounds being amplified and having lots of echo. Plus the option takes much too long to actually turn on making it quite useless in my opinion it is easier to just move a cup off your ear. Lastly the ANC has a hiss to it and actually creates a pressure feeling on your ears. I tend to keep all ANC options off to listen to these headphones. Now on to the build and this is another high point in these headphones with everything being made of quality metals that seem that they will last a lifetime. The only flaw I see is the connection to the cups has a wire that can actually be pulled on when unfolding the headphones or just turning the cups. I can easily see this wire coming loose and losing connection to the cups. Other than this small problem the rest is built and overbuilt with great quality. Now on to comfort and this is where this pair of headphones loses me. The band on top has nearly no padding and with these being built with such high quality materials makes it heavy and that band needs some padding to keep from digging into the top of your head. After only 20-30 minutes of use the top of my head is in serious discomfort and in pain after an hour. This needs to be changed. Next because of the weight the clamp is quite intense as well. Thirdly I love that the pads are so easy to remove but being such a abnormal shape it will be impossible to change out with any aftermarket pads and almost makes this feature useless. So in all I love the sound and the build, however everything else needs serious work and redesign. I do not recommend these to anyone just because of how bad the comfort is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable; ideal sound quality I haven't had headphones for ages, but with a new laptop decided it was time. I found these JBL 950 NC 'phones on the JBL website at an attractive price and decided they would work for me. I listen to a good deal of live performances by musician friends, as well as other sources, mainly organ and choral works which are notoriously difficult to reproduce authentically. These JBL 'phones have set a high standard for my listening and are notable for capturing the acoustics of performance spaces accurately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THOUGHT I HAD A FAV PAIR OF HEADPHONES... TIL NOW! This pair of headphones just arrived to me today. Upon unboxing and giving them a first and second listen, I can truly say this has made my day as well as the anticipation I've had during its shipping stage well worthwhile. I could start anywhere, but let's just start at the beginning. It came packaged securely in a disposable box with the actual headphones box inside. I think even if the carrier had mishandled the shipping package that the box inside containing the headphones them-self would have still been fine. Once unboxed, the first thing you see is a secure, hard material leather carrying case with a convenient carrying strap for holding and a zipper on it that's finely tucked and appealing to the eye (unlike your average zippers). The case with the headphones inside is light-weight, yet it's strong and durable so much that I believe the headphones would be alright if I were to accidentally drop it on the floor (don't worry - I won't be). At first glance once removed from their protective case, you see 6 visible buttons, yet I soon discovered that there's a 7th button on the side). From the design and appearance, I was pleased. I tried them on and let me tell you - these are super comfortable. So comfortable that you could keep these on for a while, maybe even hours without the feel or weight of them annoying you like some other style headphones. They've got a deep-socket space for your ears that are enclosed in a suction-like manner and honestly it felt really good to me, especially in comparison to a pair I've for years that I've considered a favorite. Though these headphones support Bluetooth, I chose to go with the aux cord for my first listen. I was quite impressed - these aren't my first JBL headphones, yet every new pair I get is better and better both sound-wise and comfort-wise. Once on, they pretty much cancel a lot of outside noise, but not so much that you can't hear anything, but they do a really good job at letting you hear your signal. I like my music loud and these did not disappoint. I was able to crank the volume up and to my satisfaction there was no limit to the volume or clarity. The Sound: Pristine if you ask me. I listen to several genres, but for my first listen I enjoyed a mixture of a bit of today's Rap and R&B top-charting songs. I went for songs that I know well and how they sound in a variety of headphones and speakers (I'm an Audio Engineer and Musician, so paying attention when listening for detail is critical for me). My first thought was that these have really good mid-range. Bass-wise, most songs that I listened to (that were professionally mixed) offered a nice knock to the kick-drums with a nice warmth for low-end bass-lines and 808 rings. They weren't too heavy on the low-end like other headphones I've heard that boost the bass giving you a false sense of bottom. These also were very high in clarity to me with nice, cutting tonality and great stereo width. I spent roughly 45 minutes listening to different songs and artists to get a good picture painting of these bad boys and at the end of my first listen, I felt impressed. After that, I took a while to refresh my ears so that I could go back and listen through Bluetooth. THIS is where the magic happened. So if you're listening through the aux, you're getting the straight-forward raw sound. But through Bluetooth, it takes it a step further as there is a button to enable bass-boost that you don't get when listening through aux. Once I turned that on, I was even happier (I love me some bass). When enabled, the perceived overall volume does feel like it's cut a bit, but that's pretty normal as it's boosting one area that it would give the impression that it's lower (but by no means does it sound low - just lower than before you enabled the boost). If you press the button again to disable the bass boost, the volume feels like it increases as the bass cuts back to normal. When it's enabled, I like how deep the bass gets, but it does seem to overpower the high end a bit and inch away from the clarity (but not like in a muffled way). It connects to Bluetooth very easily (took me 10 seconds tops) and you can use the volume buttons to skip songs forward (or back). One button enables the "talkthru" function which when pressed (only on Bluetooth) decreases the signal volume so that you can hear what's going on outside of your headphones without having to take them off. My guess is that this was intended for when someone speaks to you while you're jamming so that you don't physically have to remove your headphones off of your ears. A feature that I was excited to learn about was that there's a side button that you can use in connection with your Google Home Mini or Alexa (and it works to activate Siri for iPhone users, too). I've got a Google Home Mini, but I haven't used it in connection with it yet. I'll be setting it up later, along with downloading the official JBL Headphones app which there's a booklet that came inside the box that indicates that you may get more additional features with the use of their app. Inside your box, you also get a USB to USB-C charging cable to be able to charge them for the Bluetooth use (but no charge is necessary for aux-use). I haven't hooked them to the charger just yet as it came fully charged when delivered. It has an LED light to indicate how much of a charge the battery has and to indicate when it's low. Overall, I give these a 9.8 out of 10, and that's just because I'm a nit-picker for certain details, but please believe me when I say that this is truly a great pair of headphones to own. I'm very impressed as JBL has done it once again! So glad I have these. Thank you JBL for continuing to create and release great quality products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound and lightweight! After trying out my JBL CLUB 950 NC headphones for a couple weeks, I am totally amazed at the quality! They come in a hard material little black case with a carrying strap which is convenient for on-the-go and travel. They are lightweight and I have worn for hours without any complaints. I listened mostly through Bluetooth, which synced nearly immediately. The sound is crystal clear and when you need a little extra bass, all you do is push the Bass Boost and its like your at the club. I’ve downloaded the app to customize my sound and listening preferences, which is an added bonus. Going back to work next month so can’t wait to try out the NC feature. These are great quality headphones and I definitely would recommend, they will not disappoint you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from you better JBeLieve it By far the best feature is the noise cancelling. It means I can finally immerse myself in the music I am listening to. Then when I need to, I can switch to hear what is going on around me and it alomst amplifies the sound which I couldn't quite believe. The bluetooth aspect works great when in exercise classes etc so you don't have to be very close to your phone which has been a problem for some I have had in the past. Sound quality is brilliant, there are some lyrics I have been getting wrong all this time but no longer! Lastly, making calls is made so much easier as the sound quality BOTH sides is good so you don't have to keep taking the headphones on/off throughout the day whilst also not having to muck about with the bluetooth settings everytime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, fastest bluetooth connection I received these headphones about two months ago. I admit I didn't submit my review earlier because I wanted to test specifically the noise canceling function on a flight --which I completed just a week ago. I was most impressed with the speed to connect devices using the Bluetooth function; the fastest I've experienced among similar products I have used. The quality of the sound while in flight was very good. The bothering noise of turbines was completely isolated while I could still listen to people's voices. The headphones are very comfortable to wear and cause no fatigue over an extended period of time (my flight was 3.5 hours). The bass boost button comes in handy if you love this function. However, if you're into acoustic recordings you may need some adjustments using equalization to achieve a more realistic/natural bass sound. If I have to mention a con it will be the case. It is a bit bulky and too small to fit the headphones, the charging cable, and the audio cable that comes included with the package. In short, a very good noise-canceling headphone for the price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less than Average - Very Uncomfortable for the first few months. - The BlueTooth keeps disconnecting on it's own volition if there is no audio playing. - I do not like the press and hold buttons for the on/off of the headphones, bluetooth and noisecanceling. I feel like it should just be a simple quick press. - Not really noisecancelling by nature. They just add a background noise when you turn it on. I can put on some audio with the same effect. - I do not like how the noise cancelling is automatically on after turning on my headphones. - The sound quality and battery life is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on! Got these as an upgrade to more entry level JBL on-ears I’d had for a couple of years (and still loved). I was excited to receive the Clubs and hadn’t really tested any over-ears, so wasn’t fully sure what to expect. I wasn’t disappointed in any aspect. They look & feel quality, and sound amazing. Great power and nice to be able to customise the levels with the equaliser on the app. Only been a few weeks but no regrets and loving how JBL do things even more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bass - clear as a bell WOW, I have had many pairs of earphones, but these are in a class by themselves. Starting with the hard case, fast charging system, very well built, easy set up and the noise cancelling made "only music" come thru, even while other are watching TV all I hear is music. This is the sound I have come to enjoy with JBL's Deep Bass. I'll use these as my #1 pair for listening. Recommend these to anyone looking for the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound In the first days of using it I was so excited and amazed I literally loved them. The fit over ear is miles better than the on ear. Unfortunately after 3 days the left side started to make an unnatural noise. I believe that is related to the fact that there is the google assistant button, which may be the cause. Manufacturing issue and they could be fixed, but also the design team have to think that placing a google assistant large button on one of the sides of a pair of headphones with a bass amplifier is not easy to avoid any fault. One thing that I didn’t like is that after hours of wearing i felt a pain on top of my head because they are quite heavy. Overall the quality of the material is of good quality and they give a premium impression.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good noise-cancelling wireless headphones These are definitely good noise-cancelling wireless headphones. There are a few little things that I personally don't like, but I'll leave that to the end. First, the good stuff - starting with the box it comes in. Once you slide off the JBL packaging, the headphones are inside a perfect, matte black box. I've already reused it as a gift box it's so nice. The headphones are inside a zippered leather case, of course, which is surprisingly compact. There are buttons on the left and right sides to control volume, play/pause, Bluetooth, power on/off, voice assistant, plus this specifically awesome button that allows you to turn up the bass if you so desire. The sound quality is the usual JBL excellent quality, wireless & with the AUX cord plugged in. If you download the app, you're able to turn on/off the noise-cancelling quality as well as ambient sound. I've never had a pair of headphones that allowed me to still have them on and listen to someone speaking to me, which is what ambient sound means. If I put them on, I don't hear the A/C running or even the tap, but I can still hear if my boyfriend says something. The button to increase the bass is also neat, it makes rock music with drums or dance music with a drop even cooler. I haven't had to charge them since I got them, so I know the battery life is really long. Just to quickly go over the little things that I don't like - the voice assistant button is on the left side and is very easy to touch without meaning to especially if I'm just trying to adjust the headphones. Also, they aren't the best for physical work. I was vacuuming the house and they kept sliding down because the cushion isn't as protective as it could be. That's not to say it isn't comfortable though, because it is. The aforementioned button that increases bass is great, however you have to be listening to music with high quality, otherwise the sound of the song gets kind of washed out. Which is why being able to turn the button on and off is a great option. Another thing is that the headphones fit snugly into their case - if you can manage to figure out how to put them back in correctly, but I guess that wouldn't be a problem for everyone. All in all, it's a good pair of headphones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I bought these a couple of weeks ago, I needed a new set of wireless headphones as my old ones were past their best and after buying the quantum 810 gaming headset and being more than happy with them I decided to give these a try. The build quality of these looks and feels really good and although they are a reasonably heavy set of headphones you don’t notice it when they’re on, but I did notice the heat that the ear ups and headband caused and within a few minutes I was getting rather hot. Also the volume of these headphones is rather quiet, even with the app being used and the equaliser at its highest settings I still found these quieter than my older cheap wireless headphones and the fact that I will only ever use these wireless I was left with no option but to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trustworthy Advisor Recommendation Only had a few days but am extremely happy with these. My primary use is with a Samsung Smart TV, followed closely by an i-Phone. I tried other brands but with disappointing results resulting in muffled sound and/or poor connectivity. I was prepared to spend more than my budget as I had a previous JBL headset that worked admirably with said TV. These Club 950’s didn’t disappoint. Excellent sound on the TV for both speech and music, crystal clear, so if like me you want to use with a TV I can highly recommend. Only one very minor niggle is the control for Alexa/Google is on the casing of the left earpiece and can sometimes be accidentally activated, with the result that content playing can have minor split second “misses”. I’m still not sure how I know if that feature is on or off! (No LED).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REGRET! REGRET! I can't believe I didn't see this before I bought a Bose over the ear Soundlink II. I used to have few JBLs before, but lately I was looking for a ANC headphone, but nothing that I could afford with good quality. I even thought to get a Live BT650NC, but after go over some reviews I gave up the plan then I got a Bose a week ago. I mean, I'm satisfied, but I feel like this Club 950NC was exactly what I was looking for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Definitely not a workout device. I got my Club 950NC two weeks ago, it was delivered on time. It was pretty easy to pair with my Iphone, but some of its features do not work with Apple, they only work with other OSs, and some times it does not pair immediately, I have to go settings, Bluetooth and manually pair it, I found it to be very disappointing. When working out it does not stay put, and I am not talking about jumping or running , it's just simply doing bench presses with the head still and the head phones keep falling... When on phone calls at least I can communicate well. Sound quality is good! The case looks cool but it is way too tight. Well the sale price seemed a steal but with all these issues it is not worth the regular price of $250, $99 is okayish... I would not recommend it. I'm sorry JBL I had the brand on my highest standards but these head phones are disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything as promised - but a little heavy. This unit is perfect in every way. I have no complaint whatsoever about comfort, sound quality, the noise cancellation. However, my gripe - it's heavy. For noise cancellation to work effectively, it really needs to be tight on the head and it has a solid set of electronics. But this unit weighs a bit too much for me to wear comfortably long-term because it's tight/heavy. Going back on my search for ear buds.

Doesn't Hi Res require LDAC? So via wired, or BTcodec firmware upgrade following purchase? This was part of my iFi Zen Blue Receiver DAC (for home audio) package, and it would be great to Stream Tidal Hi Fi /Masters Quality files directly to Club 950s.

Curious as to how well these headphones hold up when it comes to working out. &nbsp;Should I stray away from wearing them at the gym as they may deal with sweat?

Asked by: hmeints06
Our JBL Club 950NC does not have an IPX rating which means it is not sweatproof and waterproof. Sweat can penetrate the internal components of the headphones creating moisture that could damage the electronics of the unit.
