Apple AirPods lead the trend of true wireless earphones, but we found that the design of true wireless earphones on the market is basically made of plastic materials, and the color scheme is either black or white, which is indeed insufficient for young users who pursue individuality. The T280TWS PRO true wireless Bluetooth earphone released by JBL may be a good choice for trendy people. It not only brings a metallic design, but also has three fashionable colors. In addition, JBL T280TWS PRO also brings excellent active noise reduction + passive noise reduction, bringing a different quiet.
First look at the packaging. The design of JBL T280TWS PRO is also quite trendy, and it has a “HitHot” flavor. With the copywriting of “DARE TO LISTEN”, it feels like a product designed for trendy people.
The earphone in my hand is a passionate red color. The metallic charging case and the red color are more personal. The JBL logo on the charging case also meets the aesthetics of many young people.
Opening the charging case, you can see that the headphone design is consistent with the charging case design style. The surface of the headphone is also sprayed with a metal texture similar to the aluminum unit patch, and the exquisite detail outline looks very metallic. The earphone is actually made of plastic material, so the weight of the earphone is also very light.
JBL T280TWS PRO supports hybrid digital noise reduction and noise reduction technology to enhance the noise reduction effect. At the same time, based on more than 70 years of experience in international stage and recording studio sound of JBL, it has been carefully tuned to bring rich music details, wide frequency range, full dynamics, balanced tone, and its treble is crystal clear, the bass is low and pure, and the sense of hierarchy is distinct.
JBL T280TWS PRO uses a 6mm drive unit, and the sound unit is designed with PEEK+PU double-layer high-tech materials. The lightweight diaphragm has a strong tension. While the rigidity of the special double-layer vibrating mode material is enhanced, it has lower low-frequency extension ability, and durable and stable acoustic characteristics. The high-strength diaphragm makes the total harmonic distortion (THD) lower, the overall elasticity is sufficient, the low-frequency extension is powerful, and the high-quality sound is presented.
JBL T280TWS PRO provides a comfortable wearing experience and comes with a variety of ergonomically designed split silicone eartips and ear-wing eartips of different sizes, which can be combined and replaced flexibly according to their actual conditions. JBL T280TWS PRO supports IPX5 waterproof and ear-wing eartips, without fear of sports environment challenges.
JBL T280TWS PRO adopts the industry-leading Bluetooth 5.0 chip platform, supports dual-channel simultaneous audio transmission, and the connection is more stable. In terms of battery life, when the noise reduction is turned off, the earphone battery life is 6 hours, and the charging case can also provide an additional 18 hours of battery life, which can achieve a mixed battery life of up to 24 hours. In addition, JBL T280TWS PRO supports fast charging, which can last for 1 hour after 15 minutes of charging.
The first time you use it, you need a mobile phone to connect to the JBL T280TWS PRO with bluetooth. When the earphone is fully charged, the earphone will automatically enter the pairing mode. After the pairing is successful, every time you open the charging case and take out the earphone, it will automatically connect to the phone.
The JBL T280TWS PRO earphones adopts a touch operation mode. Whether it is answering a call or switching music, there is no need to take out the mobile phone, just touch the earphone unit to simply complete the operation. However, the operating gestures are preset and do not support user customization. You can only spend time to understand and get used to it through the manual, which has a certain learning cost.
For music playback, tap the left/right earphone to play/pause the music, double-click the right earphone to realize the function of one song. For volume control, long press the left earphone to reduce the volume, and long press the right earphone to increase the volume. When there is an incoming call, you can click any earphone to answer and hang up. If you want to reject the call, just press and hold any earphone. Three clicks on either side of the earphone can call out the voice assistant, double-click the left earphone to switch the noise reduction function.
Noise Reduction Experience
JBL T280TWS PRO adopts hybrid active digital noise reduction and passive sound insulation technology, and adopts feed forward + feed backward dual microphones, which can accurately generate directional sound waves to cancel noise. In actual use, it can filter most of the noise in the subway, especially some low-frequency noise, bringing a comfortable and quiet feeling. In addition, in the office scene, JBL T280TWS PRO also has a good noise reduction effect. Wearing headphones to turn on noise reduction, the keyboard sound and human voice in the environment are basically filtered out.
The tuning of JBL T280TWS PRO is biased towards pop music and R&B, while the tone is slightly warmer, but has a certain wide sound field. JBL T280TWS PRO uses a 6mm driver unit and a double-layer diaphragm, which really brings a very surging bass performance. The bass part has sufficient sense of volume and depth, which is really suitable for listening to popular or heavy metal music. In terms of medium frequency, the performance of human voice is relatively ordinary, and it feels like the low frequency is covering the medium frequency. In terms of high frequency, it can restore the high frequency performance of some instruments, but it still feels a bit burr. Of course, for R&B or heavy metal music that does not pay attention to medium frequency and high frequency, JBL T280TWS PRO can still bring a good sense of hearing. In general, JBL T280TWS PRO is a more biased earphone, perhaps the same as the design, a combination of metal and fashion.
Among the TWS headphones made of black and white plastic materials, JBL T280TWS PRO does appear to be very individual, especially suitable for young users who are pursuing fashion and personality. JBL T280TWS PRO has added dual noise reduction functions to bring a better user experience, plus the tuning that favors pop music, I believe it will be sought after by many young users.
