JBL Live FLEX: Immersive Audio Meets All Day Comfort

London – 8th February 2023 – Immersive JBL Spatial Sound no matter where you are, with all-day comfort. Meet JBL Live FLEX. Thanks to JBL’s True Adaptive Noise Cancellation, it is now possible to enjoy the comfort and style of open stick earbuds with powerful noise cancelling and JBL Signature Sound. 

 “According to our extensive research, we know that the open stick design is one of the most popular earbud styles to wear, even though external noise cancellation has always been a challenge with this form. At JBL we want to provide a broad range of choice to consumers. JBL Live FLEX offers the unique combination of an open stick design and our True Adaptive Noise Cancellation technology.  It automatically adjusts to your movement and environment, despite the absence of a physical seal between you and the outside world,” said Pascal van Laer, Vice President of Headphones & Wearables at Harman.


With JBL Live FLEX, you can listen and be heard. High fidelity 12mm neodymium drivers deliver excellent audio from any source and any device. Got something to say? Make clear, perfect calls in all environments with 6 mics on the earbuds or access your preferred voice assistant for seamless control.
