Hardly any other manufacturer currently stands for laid-back fun with music as much as JBL. With their colorful Bluetooth and party speakers, the Americans have the market for mobile sound boxes about as firmly under control as the Chinese table tennis players have won medals at the Olympics.

But not only in the group, but also when you are completely to yourself with the headphones, the party at JBL should not end. In order to meet this requirement, the latest in-ear headphones again offer numerous qualities that should make one thing above all: fun!

Operation & sound

The Tour Pro + TWS are fun when you switch them on for the first time. In no time at all, the in-ears are paired and even connect independently of each other, so that they can also be used individually without any problems.

The lack of multi-pairing for the simultaneous connection with smartphone and laptop is a minor blemish. Otherwise, however, the operation of JBL gives no reason for criticism: It is comfortable, intuitive and, in conjunction with the app, can be perfectly adapted to your own preferences.

With the headphones app in particular, one notices the Americans’ experience with a broad audience. All available functions are excellently explained and arranged so that you can find your way around immediately, even with little technical knowledge. There is really nothing to complain about here.

Our conclusion in terms of sound is just as positive. While JBL headphones are always a bit under the general suspicion of being too bass-heavy, the Tour Pro + TWS are wonderfully balanced.

The bass still has a good punch, but by no means pushes itself too much into the foreground. The volume performance is also considerable and should be absolutely sufficient for most music fans.

In addition, these new in-ears from JBL with a full eight hours of uninterrupted music playback (without ANC) also demonstrate a level of fitness that even a well-trained party-goer has to keep up with.

Even with the topic of telephony acoustics, which is unpopular for many in-ears, the Tour Pro + TWS are still doing very well. The microphones on the outside do a good job. This can be seen, among other things, in the fact that speech intelligibility is still at an absolutely decent level if you only use one earpiece on the phone.

Not without flaws

The only question that arises is not so much praise, whether the Tour Pro + TWS have any negative sides at all. Unfortunately, the answer to that is yes.

You can overlook the not quite optimal fit in the ear, which always requires a bit of fiddling. However, the performance of the ANC is really negative.

Not only does the active noise suppression lack performance compared to the best competitor products; The in-ears also have a few weaknesses in the voice-through and ambient mode, as the headphones keep trying audibly to adapt to new acoustic situations.

Immersing yourself in the music is made much more difficult when the sound characteristics keep changing noticeably when trying to adapt to the environment.


JBL’s new in-ears are a lot of fun thanks to the great operation, the very good sound and the excellent endurance. However, you are welcome to work on the ANC.
