Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
JBL claims its True Adaptive Noise Cancelling responds to the environment and changes in real-time to adapt by compensating for sound leakage caused by factors like hair, eyeglasses, and head movement. In practice, it couldn't block out droning sounds like bathroom fans, dehumidifiers, and blow dryers as well as the Sony WH-1000XM3. At $350, JBL has priced the Club One headphones near the top of a highly competitive field.

Sentiment Score[*] 74%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
With ANC engaged, deep lows (like you hear on a plane or train) are substantially tamped down. The ANC has a little more trouble with sounds like office chatter and keyboard typing. JBL estimates battery life to be roughly 25 hours with both ANC and Bluetooth engaged, or up to 45 hours with only Bluetooth.

Pros[**]
  • Strong audio performance
  • Solid noise cancellation
  • Comfortable fit
Cons[**]
  • Lacks bass depth

rtings[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 45%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The JBL CLUB ONE are alright for mixed use. They're comfortable for most uses, and their battery life lasts over a day. They have a fairly balanced, neutral sound with a touch of extra bass suitable for DJing. On the downside, their somewhat large soundstage sounds unnatural, closed-off, and as if it's coming from inside your head.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable and stable design
  • Companion app offers parametric EQ plus presets
  • Decent battery life
Cons[**]
  • Bass-heavy soundstage
  • Bulky design

techradar[4]

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
JBL's Club One headphones feature an 'adaptive' noise-cancellation system. The mic array monitors ambient conditions as often as 50,000 times per second. The ‘My JBL Headphones' app brings an impressive degree of customisation to the Club One experience.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive noise-cancellation
  • Easy-to-use app
Cons[**]
  • Noise reduction isn’t for everyone

trustedreviews[5]

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The JBL Club One sounds very good, verging on excellent, but just falls short of the top tier in what is an extremely tough field. Treble is clear and detailed – perhaps not the sharpest but it stands out and, I feel, is more articulate than the Sony WH-1000XM3. The JBLs are good at reducing environmental sounds, but not at the type of heavy-duty noise-cancelling that its rivals can offer.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful, detailed sound
  • Comfortable fit
  • Easy to use app
Cons[**]
  • Noise cancellation isn’t as effective as rivals
