For a pair of headphones with an affordable price, it would be wise not to expect premium materials. The earpads are covered with a thin fabric, the type that tends to be scratched easily. Even though it’s not like high end products in the market, the JBL Tune 500BT makes up for it by being lightweight, making it easy on the ears, even when used for long periods of gaming or hands-free calling.
The clamping force of the JBL Tune 500BT is strong, making it suitable for basic activity or light gym workouts. They fit securely enough without moving around the head but the downside is the JBL Tune 500BT may get hot after some time. The JBL Tune 500BT also fits even big heads, thanks to its extendable and flexible headband.
