The JBL Quantum 800 features active noise cancellation (ANC) The boom microphone is very sensitive and sounds excellent with some tinkering. Music sounds very good on the Quantum 800 when you use the right settings. If you want good ANC, the Sennheiser HD 450BT is an excellent pair of headphones.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The JBL Quantum 800 are okay for mixed use. They have a bass-heavy sound profile with a somewhat veiled treble. If you don't like this sound, there's a graphic EQ as well as presets available on their companion software. They're better suited for gaming, though, as they can connect wirelessly via their USB dongle.

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
The JBL Quantum 800 provides rich, detailed soundscapes that deliver a healthy amount of bass, robust trebles and crystal-clear voices. Unlike most other USB headsets, the Quantum 800 uses five different drivers to manage its sound. It's a shame that you can't remove the microphone, otherwise the Bluetooth functionality would make it an easy sell for trips and commutes.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 3.5 mm audio
  • Excellent battery life
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Good sound
Cons
  • Can’t remove the microphone
