After being announced at CES 2020, JBL has just launched its new JBL Live 300 TWS. They are completely wireless in-ear headphones that follow the path set by other models such as the JBL Tune 220 TWS, but add technologies such as Ambient Aware or TalkThru, of which we will know more below, and promise more autonomy.
Its price is 149 $ and can be obtained in three finishes: black with gold details, white with gray and blue details. The price does not vary from one to another. At the moment they are only available on the JBL website, but on Amazon, they will land on May 26 at the same price. Presentations made, we will get to know them better.

The headphones have a familiar design. They are of the intraaural type , so they will have to be inserted into the ear canal, where they will be supported thanks to silicone pads. These, by the way, come in different sizes for the user to choose the ones that best suit them. Note that they are IPX5 certified, making them resistant to water and sweat.
By touching them we can activate the Ambient Aware function , which modifies the amount of external noise we can hear, and TalkThru , which will amplify the voices of the people around us so that we can hear them better without removing our headphones. The virtual assistant (Alexa and Google Assistant) can also be invoked directly from the headphones.
Each headphone contains a 5.6 millimeter driver with a frequency range of 20 Hz-20 Khz and a sensitivity of 95 dB NPSA at 1KHz / 1mW. They have a microphone, of course, with a sensitivity of -24 dBV at 1 KHz / pa and 16 Ohm impedance. They also house inside a 55 mAh ion-itium battery that will be charged by a case with 450 mAh.
With that battery, JBL promises a continuous music playing time of six hours . The case has enough capacity to, according to the manufacturer, charge the two headphones up to three times, so the theoretical maximum total would be 20 hours of playback. They affirm, in turn, that with only ten minutes of charging an autonomy of one hour can be achieved.
As for added functions, they are compatible with Google Fast Pair, so they will quickly sync with Android phones. Obviously, they can also be used with iOS devices. Finally, to manage the headphones and to personalize the audio, you will have to download the My JBL app, available on iOS and Android.
