The JBL Club 950NC are the mid-range entry in JBL's Club range of wireless headphones. They offer a wide range of features, including active noise cancellation, Ambient Aware and TalkThru modes. The memory foam earcups form a decent fit over your ears and are reasonably soft but don't create the luxurious fit you get with Bose's Quiet Comfort 35 II.

  • Excellent sound quality

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
JBL's new $249.95 Club 950NC headphones are similar to the company's $349.95 club One. Both pairs are armed with ANC (active noise cancellation) and support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Both offer solid audio performance and ANC, though not the best we've tested.

  • Powerful audio performance with deep lows and low-frequency response
  • Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support
  • Comfortable, comfortable fit
  • Bass Boost isn't for purists

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The JBL CLUB 950NC are decent over-ear ANC headphones for mixed usage. Their sound profile is well-balanced and versatile enough for a wide range of genres and content, from hip-hop to podcasts. They have an integrated microphone in the headphones themselves, as well as an in-line mic if you use them wired. The passive soundstage is sub-par, though this is common for closed-back headphones.

  • Well-balanced sound profile
  • Good battery life
  • Compatible with PC, PS4, and Xbox One
  • Mediocre noise isolation
  • Only works via Bluetooth or with a wired connection

Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The JBL Club 950NC have been inspired by some of the superstar DJs in JBL's stable, such as Armin Van Buuren and Nicky Romero. They favour an enthusiastic, lively presentation that's fun to listen to wirelessly, but equally fun through a wired connection to a 3.5mm headphone socket. There's a Bass Boost function that can be controlled via a button on the right earcup, but it's an ingredient you can either add or remove as you see fit. The headphones are sturdy and feel like they're built to last.
