JBL today announced the Club Pro+, its first true wireless earbuds under the Club line of headphones (via The Verge). The new Club Pro+ promises to deliver great sound quality and are also loaded with features, including active noise cancellation.
JBL Club Pro+ earbuds use 6.8mm dynamic drivers and have a "unibody design" inspired by professional in-ear monitors. Like many other true wireless earbuds, they are IPX4 rated for water resistance and come with a "Smart Ambient" mode that lets in background noise whenever you need to stay aware of your surroundings.
When it comes to battery life, JBL claims the earbuds themselves can deliver up to eight hours of continuous playback time. With ANC enabled, however, you can expect only around six hours of battery life. The battery case is claimed to provide 24 additional hours of listening time. There's support for quick charging too, along with Qi wireless charging. The earbuds also support Fast Pair on Android and feature three microphones for "crystal clear voice clarity."
Along with the Club Pro+, JBL has launched the Endurance Peak II earbuds, which are more fitness-focused, with an ear hook design. They earbuds offer IPX7 water resistance and up to 30 hours of battery life.
The JBL Club Pro+ earbuds will be available in the U.S. from October 25 for $200, while the Endurance Peak II earbuds will retail for $100.
