Synchros Stories July 13, 2016

We’ve all heard the rumors. Nor more headphone jack on the new iPhone and then of course everyone else will follow suit. All of your 3.5mm stuff goes in the trash heap?

Well, I’m not sure how it will all play out but I wouldn’t mind spending just $30 on a pair of these super premium JBL Synchros headphones with a universal mic in white or Black at Amazon even if I ditch them with a new round of phones later this year and next. Features:

  • Ultra-light, die-cast aluminum construction
  • Premium 10mm driver for professional audio sound with PureBass performance
  • Angled ear tips for improved comfort and stability
  • Tangle resistant flat cable with Universal Remote
  • 3 sizes of silicone ear tips as well as 1 pair of Comply foam tips for superior fit
