Trio of JBL LIVE Noise-Cancelling Headphones Launched

JBL added three new headphone models to its LIVE Series at CES 2021.

JBL's new LIVE Series headphones cover true wireless, over-, and on-ear models - The JBL LIVE PRO+, JBL LIVE 660NC and JBL LIVE 460NC.

Each of the newly announced JBL LIVE ear-pleasers boast JBL Signature Sound and noise-cancelling capabilities with Smart Ambient, and hands-free control with integrated voice assistants.



Scooping the “Best of Innovation Honoree” at the prestigious CES 2021 Innovation Awards, the JBL LIVE PRO+ in-ear true wireless headphones feature a 'stick' design and Adaptive Noise Cancelling with Smart Ambient, meaning that you can have a conversation without having to remove the buds.

Equipped with three mics in each earbud and echo-cancelling tech, the LIVE PRO+ ensures crisp, clear calls, even in noisy and windy environments. Hotword and Device Action support allows for easy access to your preferred voice assistant using voice commands or with a tap on the earbud.

Rounding the features up is IPX4 water-resistance and Qi wireless charging with 10-minutes of quick charge equating to 1 hour of instant playback. Battery life is stated at 7 hours playback in fully-charged earbuds with a further 21 in the charging case.

JBL LIVE 660NC and 460NC


Prefer headphones to earbuds? The JBL LIVE 660NC and 460NC are over-ear and on-ear headphones, respectively. Both sets of cans feature up to 40 hours of battery life while using Adaptive Noise Cancelling or 50 hours without. A quick 10-minute charge hands you 4 hours of playtime, too.

Multi-point connection capabilities enable effortless swapping between two separate devices. Like the JBL LIVE PRO+, the 660NC and 460NC are also equipped with Hotword and Device Action support for easy access to preferred voice assistants, using voice commands or pressing the ear cup.


The JBL LIVE 660NC and LIVE 460NC will be available for purchase in late March 2021 for US$199.95 (~S$265) and US$129.95 (~S$172), respectively. Both come in Black, Blue and White with the 460NC adding Rose to the colour options.

The JBL LIVE PRO+ follows in April, costing US$179.95 (~S$238) and available in four colour options – Black, White, Pink and Beige.
