Summary

JBL LIVE 300TWS are a fairly straight-forward pair of truly wireless in-ears. They deliver strong, bass-forward audio in a water-resistant, secure-fitting design. The battery life may not be as impressive as JBL advertises, but the case at least allows for a couple of extra charges. If you're on a bit of a budget, the JBL Live 300 TWS's many features and good sound quality make them a worthy option.

The JBL Live 300TWS are the company's newest release in the true wireless category. These earbuds pack dynamic sound and smart controls into a ruggedly handsome chassis. JBL is known for its emphatic, bass-forward sound, which is why I'm taken aback by the buds's tamed low end. The buds have stellar midrange and vocal reproduction.

Reviewers from Macworld have found the following[***]:
The JBL Live 300TWS are true wireless earbuds with a 2.7-inch-wide case. Despite JBL's claim that the buds will play music for a full six hours, on two occasions they sputtered out before I reached the fifth hour. The left earbud allows you to activate either the Google Assistant or Alexa.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
JBL's Live 300TWS are true wireless earbuds with built-in Alexa and Google Assistant. An IPX5 rating means the earphones can withstand splashes and light rain. The earpieces utilize separate eartips and earfins to obtain a secure in-ear fit. There's plenty of low-frequency response at moderate volumes.

  • Built-in Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The JBL LIVE 300TWS are a fairly straight-forward pair of truly wireless in-ears that perform decently overall for most uses. Their sound profile is fairly well-balanced, making them suitable for a wide range of genres. They last 4.4 hours off a single charge, which is similar to many other truly wireless headphones but is a lot shorter than the six hours JBL advertises. They take 1.3 hours to charge, and their case only gives around two full additional charges.

Pros[**]
  • Decent sound quality
  • Great companion app
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Poor noise isolation
  • Not compatible with PS4

Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The JBL Live 300TWS are true wireless headphones with built-in Alexa and Google Assistant. They come in black, white and navy, with a kind of taupe colour in the works. The design of the buds feels more streamlined and teardrop-shaped, thanks to the perfectly-angled neck.

Pros[**]
  • Stylish, durable design
  • Alexa and Google Assistant are built-in
  • Good sound quality
Cons[**]
  • Lacklustre battery life
