Fit nice; sound nice; can't charge while using... Huge flaw imo as headsets are used routine; meaning that I'll always have to have a backup in case this thing dies while I need it to work. Won't buy again; would not recommend for work/gaming.

so the headset works pretty great when wired, the audio quality is good but you can’t use the controls on the headset since i play on xbox, and i started using them wirelessly on my phone, and the first couple hours the ANC worked perfectly fine, and out of nowhere and very VERY annoying and discombobulating crackling noise constantly plays, i did nothing to cause that, it just happened out of nowhere.

Stellar headphones

5 out of 5 rating

Alexander · 9 months ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

The product is absolutely worth the price. Better than any gaming headphones and I believe far superior then even Bose headphones. The quantum surround sound makes you actually believe that someone is right behind you. You need these headphones.

Too good to give up

5 out of 5 rating

Eveenala · 11 months ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Honestly, accidentally stole these from my dad after he purchased them for himself and wanted me to test them out and learn how to use the controls to teach him... he ended up needing to get himself another pair. I have no shame. Take my review with a grain of salt. I'm very picky with actual headphones for listening to music, but this is my first headset. Anyway, great headphones. The USB dongle is the best way to use them just because it'll force my Lenovo laptop to default all open apps to the 800 Game while bluetooth I'll have to restart everything (this is more a laptop issue). The sidetone feature is actually really helpful as well. The passive noise cancelling on the headphones is really good, but I like being able to hear myself speak and it prevents that awkward "hold on, let me take off my whole headset so I can hear you speak" moment. Invaluable. You HAVE to use the app to use and customize this setting, though. And I don't know how or why anyone is having issues with the dongle connecting to another source. I've used it on my laptop, at work, and on my boyfriends PS4 and never had an issue. I do have issues with the bluetooth going to sleep on my at random times while on my laptop. Completely fine on my phone, though. Haven't figured out how to deal with that yet. The fact that it's discord certified is actually really nice as well. Being able to adjust between voice chat and my game is helpful when they start getting rowdier or the game gets somber. BUT I have the same issue as most people where it's really easy to change these settings and you can do it unintentionally. But if it's between not needing to readjust or not being able to fine-tune the settings... I'll just readjust. I have nothing but good things to say about the sound. For casual listeners, you won't notice any issues. For people who need good sound quality, these headphones won't disappoint. Sound is clear and you won't deal with any compression or white noise issues for games and background music. They're not for actual hi-fi music, but good for any streaming (Youtube, Apple Music, Spotify, game soundtracks) they'll keep up. I've also gotten SO MANY compliments on the mic's clarity and everyone knows when I'm using any other headphones for chat. It's good at filtering noise and only catching my voice when I'm in the office with my boyfriend. Admittedly, I need to take better care of these headphones. I leave them at awkward angles, I transport them in a backpack with my laptop, they've been knocked off the desk, and yet they're still good.

Excellent Headphones with a BIG problem

3 out of 5 rating

Hudu · 11 months ago

I bought them with a new PC, super excited and started gaming. No problems, everything how it should. Can connect Bluetooth to my tablet simultaniously, works great. Battery works for about 15 hours, i can confirm. BUT: If you have to charge them you cannot use them. They refuse to turn on. If you wanna play with friends you basically need a backup for them. I didn't notice a acustic warning while using them that the battery gets low... Otherwise great but if i had knew that i wouldn't have bought them...

Absolute garbage design flaws

1 out of 5 rating

RyanKB13 · 1 years ago

The device needs to be connected to the computer via usb cable to update and function, and the device also shuts down immediately after connecting to a usb. Results - product doesn’t work . After several tries the product actually quits working all together. How’d this get past the test phase before you released this product to the public ? It’s embarrassing

Absolutely Insane

5 out of 5 rating

JayGee · 1 years ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I bought these just to break away from the normal gaming headset... I am beyond impressed with the performance. The audio quality is life-changing, the mic quality is perfect, the comfort level is better than anything I've ever tested and the software is easy to use and does everything I could ask without compromise (looks great too). Very impressed. JBL has earned my loyalty. JBL you really need to market these more. Seriously.

I got these last week and went to update them through the software and an error occurred which bricked my headset. I had them for maybe an hour and then they were never able to turn on again.

Can you use them for gaming on an Iphone or IPad? If so, how is the latency and the bluetooth connectivity?

Leon at Customer Service - 8 months

Our JBL Quantum 800s Bluetooth feature is only for the wireless dongle to connect the headphones wirelessly to the PC. If you're going to use the headphones for an iPhone or iPad, you can use the 3.5mmm Aux cable to connect the headphones to your devices.

What is the construction of the headband and driver/headband interface? I had a pair of SB400BT that eventually failed when the plastic hinge broke. I replaced them with SB650ANC's, which are metal through all the stress points.

Ray at Customer Support - 10 months

Our Quantum Development Team has informed us, that for weight and durability purposes the Quantum does not use metal for the headband or linkage between the headband and drivers. An extremely durable compound plastic is used.
