JBL's Club series is the company's new line of high-end Bluetooth headphones. The Club One is the flagship model, offering a long list of pro-grade technologies and features not seen on most other Bluetooth headphones. The graphene drivers are High Res certified. JBL's "True Adaptive Noise Cancellation" samples ambient sound 50,000 times per second and compensates for sound leakage caused by factors such as eyeglasses and movement. A SilentNow feature invokes the noise cancellation without activating Bluetooth, for complete isolation from all sound. Other features include Ambient Aware and TalkThru functions for when you want to hear outside sound, Personi-Fi personal calibration, support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, touch controls, and durable metal hinges. The Club One are full-size over-ear cans, and will sell for $350 this spring. The company also introduced the Club 950NC and Club 700BT models, for $250 and $150, respectively. The models have most of the features of the Club One, but the 950NC have a less-advanced active noise cancellation. The 700BT does not have noise cancellation and is on on-ear model, instead of over-ear. All three models have roughly 50 hours of battery life, or half that when using noise cancellation.
