Building on the success of last year’s Tour Pro 2, JBL recently introduced three new Live 3 models: Live Buds 3, Live Beam 3, and Live Flex 3. Each model features a groundbreaking Smart Charging Case with a touchscreen display.
JBL Live 3’s smart touchscreen case puts ANC and personalized audio at your fingertips
JBL’s Live 3 earbuds series introduces a revolutionary Smart Charging Case with a 1.45-inch LED touch display, providing users with convenient control over various features without the need for a smartphone app. The three models also offer a diverse range of designs to cater to different user preferences.
The Smart Charging Case technology, previously seen in JBL’s Tour Pro 2, allows users to interact with their earbuds, adjusting volume and toggling Adaptive Noise Cancellation (ANC) via the intuitive touchscreen display. The case also introduces a unique Ear Canal Test, ensuring a personalized listening experience tailored to individual ear shapes.
