JAM Audio's latest wireless headphones offer ANC and a fold-away design for US$60
JAM Audio has announced that it is seeking to bring ANC to the affordable end of the wireless headphone market with its new product. The Travel ANC set is indeed rated for this sought-after spec: its OEM claims that it can even work with its audio switched off for a bit of quiet in crowded or distracting environments.
The Travel ANCs are rated for 18 hours of playback, or 24 with its eponymous function turned off. JAM Audio also claims that the headphones deliver "hard-hitting bass with full-range sound". Their ear cushions are padded, and they can bend along the headband and pivot at the ear-cups for compact storage when necessary.
The headphones have physical controls for media and calls, and also feature a 3.5mm jack for the option of wired listening (there is also an AUX cable in the box). Next to this port is one for microUSB - which implies a major compromise with these well-priced ANC accessories: in other words, it may take a long time (which goes unspecified by the OEM) to charge them.
Accordingly, the JAM Audio Travel ANC wireless headphones are just US$59.99. They are available from certain US retailers, or from the company's own website, from now.
