When it comes to high-quality audio equipment, JBL has been doing things the right way for over three-quarters of a century. And while its history dates back quite a while, that’s no excuse to stop pushing the envelope, which is why the American manufacturer’s new Tour Pro 2 earbuds come equipped with a state-of-the-art charging case.
The L.A-based brand claims this to be the first-ever “smart charging case,” and the device’s eye-grabbing 1.45” touchscreen leaves us with no room to argue that. As far as functionality is concerned, this allows you to seamlessly skip through songs, adjust listening modes (standard or ANC), send messages, and answer calls without digging around for your phone. Plus, conversations are crystal clear thanks to its 6-microphone array, so you won’t even see the need to use the phone when wearing the buds.
As far as sound is concerned, the Tour PRO 2 features an impressive 10mm dynamic driver and JBL’s signature Personi-Fi tech to tailor the sound to your ear shape. On top of that, performing the Ear Canal Test in a louder environment will ultimately adjust to your surroundings and allow you to relax in sheer silence. You can make the most of these features for up to 40 hours when utilizing its fast-charging case, which will come doused in sleek shades of black and champagne.
If you’re trying to lower your phone’s screen time stats, this is a great way to start. JBL’s Tour Pro 2 Earbuds will be available in January 2023 for $250.
