If you thought wireless earbuds were smart already, think again. JBL has announced the Tour Pro 2, a set of wireless earbuds that feature adaptive noise cancellation and customizable ANC. But, the most impressive detail, is the charging case which includes a 1.45-inch LED touchscreen control panel. Users can receive text messages, notifications, and phone calls as well as control their audio selection. For those of us without a smartwatch, the Tour Pro 2 touchscreen case would offer the same functionality.
Additionally, the Tour Pro 2 earbuds are Bluetooth 5.3 LTE compatible and offer JBL spatial sound and 10mm drivers. The six microphones included in the earbuds will bring improved audio quality on phone calls and you can expect up to 40 hours of music playback. The earbuds on their own can last up to 10 hours on a single charge with an additional 30 hours in the case.
Unfortunately, the JBL Tour Pro 2 do not currently have a US release. Instead, they are slated to hit Europe in January 2023 and will retail at €299/£280 with color options of black and champagne.
