JBL has introduced another set of TWS earbuds as it continues to assert itself in an already extremely competitive market. Promising excellent sound quality, long battery life and many exciting features, the JBL Live 300TWS miss out on one crucial function.

Priced at US$149.95, the JBL Live 300TWS will start shipping in the US from May 16. However, they have already begun shipping in markets like the UK, where they retail for £129.95.

According to JBL the Live 300TWS last up to six hours between charges and twenty hours of combined playback before their charging case also needs topping up. The earbuds have built-in Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, along with functionality like Ambient Aware and TalkThru. The earbuds are also IPX5 certified against sweat and water.

JBL has neglected to include any form of active noise cancellation (ANC) though, potentially making them a tough sell compared to other ANC TWS earbuds like the Sony WF-1000XM3.

The Live 300TWS come in Black, Blue or White in most markets. JBL is also selling a purple version in the US.
