JBL Everest Elite 700 Headphones Platinum Review

It’s been 70 years since James B. Lansing left Altec Lansing to found Lansing Sound, the company that bears his initials today. A lot changed in that time and these days JBL is just one of the many hi-fi companies that are part of the Harman family that was recently purchased by Samsung. To celebrate the 70-year milestone, JBL launched a new “platinum” variation on one of the finest wireless headphones made. The Everest Elite 700 is JBL’s flagship over-ear, Bluetooth wireless noise-cancelling headphone that packs an impressive list of features.

The only minor disappointment in the new platinum edition is that it only offers a fresh coat of paint on the classic headphone that launched in 2015 in black or white. Now, JBL lets you choose a slick new platinum hue to honor its 70th platinum anniversary. It would have been nice to see some new feature or acoustic improvement to set the Platinum edition apart from its predecessors, but JBL would be hard pressed to improve on the Everest Elite 700 while maintaining its price range. The JBL Everest Elite 700 can be found for around $250 these days.  How do they sound? Read on to find out…
