It has been a while since we’ve seen a brand come out with significant innovation in the wireless earbuds market, yet JBL has managed to do just that with their JBL Tour Pro 2 wireless earbuds that come rocking a LED touchscreen on its charging case.

Specifically, the Tour Pro 2’s case features a 1.45-inch LED touchscreen that provides similar functions to smartwatches like the Apple Watch. To that effect, with the touchscreen, users can control their music, receive calls and messages, view social media notifications, and control audio modes.

The Tour Pro 2’s has an “oval tube design” and comes with various ear tip sizes to provide the best fit and optimize its adaptive noise cancellation feature. It features Spatial audio and HARMAN’s Personi-fi 2.0 hearing profile customization to improve the audio experience for users. It also has 6 microphones and VoiceAware technology to capture the user’s voice better.

According to JBL, the device can provide up to 40 hours of music play time and 5 hours worth of usage on a 10-minute charge, thanks to fast-charging technology.

Pricing for the JBL Tour PRO 2 starts at €249. The black and champagne variants will be available on JBL.com beginning January 2023.
