JBL Duet NC is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These headphones are definitely worth the money. Nice clean and crisp sound with outstanding bass. Plus the noise canceling works wonders. The battery last for a really long time as well. I use these headphones to work out since they don't fall off of my head and take my mind away from other distractions. The material that it's made with is high quality and you can tell that it is not cheaply made. If you are looking at new comfortable Noise Canceling headphones; these are comparable to the best!!! Hope this helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, not really confortable I like very much the sound that is not pushing a lot on the bass but still having them distinct. They don't have a whouah effect of some headphones that make you tired after 10 minutes. The sound is clear and keeps you on listening to music. Also the connectivity worked very well, except with my old PC where it connected but the sound is stopping every second. Maybe due to my PC. I tried with my work laptop and there, no issue. Another really good thing is the lag, I have other cheaper bletooth headphones with which I can't watch anything on my tablet or phone as the sound and the picture get completely de-synchronized. With the duet I couldn't notice any lag. Now the down side: I bought these headphone thinking that they where much lighter. The online shop was indicating 183g while they are actually 266g on my scale and 260g on the specifications after searching for a while. 266g is a bit heavy. Also they are not very deep so my ears are a bit touching. Last part on comfort, they are a bit tight: my head feels a bit squeezed. It sounds bad but I manage to keep them hours on. So at the end it is ok. Last detail: I am struggling to fold them to put them back in the case. I haven't tried much the sound counselling in real situations but it looks really good. When enabling it I can really feel the difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be so much better...... These are really nice headphones. The MAJOR problem is the cracking and popping in the right headphone. This is my second pair. I feel as though I've wasted my money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poppin and a Crackin! I bought the DUETNC at a sprint store around Christmas along with some new phones. WOW! I thought these were the best sounding Noise cancelling Headphones EVER! They were superb! Until after about a week and the right side would pop and crack so loudly with the NC on it actually HURT my eardrum. So I thought "oh well, stuff happens" and I Just exchanged them for another pair at the sprint store. Back in the saddle and ROCKIN again! I never wanted to take them off! That is until after about another week went by and low and behold...the right side started POPPIN AND A CRACKIN so loudly IT HURT! Now I'm getting a little frustrated. So I proceeded to go back up to sprint store to exchange them again, BUT...this time the sprint rep tells me there is nothing he can do for me because its been 2 weeks since I purchased them! So...In utter DISBELIEF, I asked if he was pulling my leg or something!? Because I dont know of any store in this country where you pay that kind of money for something and then be told you cant return it!? ITS BEEN LONGER THAN 2 WEEKS!? WHAT???? THAT'S INSANE! I was so upset, that after I had been with sprint as a loyal customer for 8 years, I dropped them on the spot, told that rep where he could go, and I went to VERIZON! So....I've had these $250 headphones for 3 months that I cannot use and do not know what to do, because the stupid sprint rep would not even help me or explain to me what I need to do or who to get ahold of to take care of the issue. I'm sorry JBL, but I would find a DIFFERENT phone carrier to do business with! SPRINT IS A JOKE! But I do not believe these headphones are, it has got to be something simple! PLEASE HELP! Tim Roe

So if this "remote" doesn't allow you to mute your phone, just what does it do ? and how does it work ? The instructions are vague.

How is this different from the Everest Elite 750 NC in terms of sound quality and noise cancellation?

Asked by: KmanS
While the Duet NC and the Everest Elite 750 NC are close in terms of sound quality, The main difference would be that the Everest elite has an app called the JBL app which allows you to change the level of noise cancelling you want by using the application.
