JBL updates their true wireless earbuds with the LIVE 300TWS and TUNE 220TWS

JBL LIVE 300TWS (male model not included).

JBL today announced two new true wireless earbuds that combine sound, comfort, and convenience into a tiny little pod. Without further ado, below are the JBL LIVE 300TWS and JBL TUNE 220TWS.

The JBL LIVE 300TWS is a pair of true wireless earbuds with a host of commuter-friendly features for convenience. It's rated IPX5 for water resistance, making it resistant against water jets from a bottle-sized nozzle. It also packs dual microphones for calls, and two awareness technologies: Ambient Aware and TalkThru. Ambient Aware allows some ambient noise for listeners to remain situationally alert. In contrast, TalkThru will enable listeners to hear nearby human speech at the touch of a button, even while their songs continue playing. Its carrying case doubles a charging pod, and both the LIVE 300TWS with its case grant a total of 20 hours playback time.

A key feature of JBL's LIVE products, be it over-ear headphones or in-ear buds, is its hands-free calling via voice assistants. In particular, the LIVE 300TWS is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

The JBL LIVE 300TWS retails at S$219. It is available now via their official store on Lazada, and it will arrive on the JBL Online Store on 5 May 2020 (although the URL isn't live yet). They come in three colour options - Black, Petroleum Navy, and Thunder Purple.

The JBL TUNE 220TWS is audio-oriented, with a 12.5mm driver capable of the JBL Pure Bass Sound audio profile. It also uses the true wireless earbuds form factor, allowing its users to binge their music tracks wherever they go. It also features hands-free stereo call capabilities through its native voice assistant. The earbuds feature an ergonomic fit for comfort, and it uses a sleek-looking metallic sheen with a variety of colourways available. The true wireless earbuds have three hours of playback, while the carrying case that doubles as a charging pod offers an additional 16 hours of playback.
