JBL Tour Pro 2 Review – Design and Functionality

Writing this JBL Tour Pro 2 Review gave us insights into the design and functions of the Tour Pro 2. 

The product fits in the middle category featuring a design similar to the AirPods from Apple. In addition, it has a refined look, combining glossy black and matte plastic. Even the shape of its earbud is similar to the AirPods, which sports an oval form.

Its curves and the lower weight combine to provide a comfortable fit, allowing you to wear the earbuds for hours. Plus, the outer portion of the earbuds has a touch panel that can accept double, single, and triple taps. It also works with long presses to execute various on-board controls.

Additionally, you can reconfigure the functions to your preferences using the JBL Headphones app. The earpiece has a capacitative touch control panel to adjust these through its companion app.

  • By default, one tap on the left earbud shifts between Ambient Aware and ANC modes. Executing the same gestures on the opposite earbud controls playback.
  • Double-tapping on the left earbud gives you the TalkThru Ambient Mode. If you double-tap on the right, it will take you to the next track. 
  • Out of the box, there are no actions when you make triple traps on the left earbud. However, doing so on the right earbud brings out the voice assistant.

Hands-on with the JBL Tour Pro 2 

jbl pro tour 2 review11 JBL Tour Pro 2 Review

We will discuss our experience with these earbuds in this part of our JBL Tour Pro 2 Review. But first, let us discuss how it sounds when playing our favourite tunes. 

The Tour Pro 2 offers a delightful music-listening experience overall. Smoothness is noticeable in instrumental music, jazz, easy-listening, and soulful tracks. 

We are pleased with the remarkable sound quality of the recent products JBL have been delivering. One contributing factor is the enhanced soundstage, where audio feels less crowded. It is also more expansively distributed between the left and right channels.

JBL always has an excellent bass response, and the Tour Pro 2 makes it enjoyable with its relaxed timbre. Although it does not have the same depth and energy as other JBL headphones, it is rich in detail. Plus, it offers adequate clarity for the separation of instruments.

The mid frequencies of the Tour Pro 2 are good and the instruments come through smoothly.

The Tour Pro 2 also has a noticeable expansion to the bass and upper mids that colourise various sound elements. As a result, it makes the overall profile more enjoyable.

The treble is expressive with a slightly dull timbre. Fortunately, adjusting the EQ can enhance the audio. 

After customising, the sound had a noticeable pop on the highs, which impacted the sound signature. The overall treble response became favourable, but results may vary for every user.

We were satisfied with the overall performance of these earbuds during our tests for this JBL Tour Pro 2 Review. It is easy to recommend due to its high-quality audio and touchscreen that provides easy access to many features.

JBL Tour Pro 2 Review Summary

JBL continues strengthening its Bluetooth product line with the Tour Pro 2. It is the most innovative and unique JBL product since it has a touchscreen charging case. Plus, it has multiple features that offer different listening experiences.

Although it is a pricey pair of earbuds, it is an excellent product worth purchasing. We enjoyed different features and sound profiles when we tested the earbuds for our JBL Tour Pro 2 Review. 

Although pricey, the Tour Pro 2 is an excellent pair of earbuds, and we highly recommend it. It has an enjoyable sound signature, efficient noise cancellation, and a unique multi-purpose touchscreen on its charging case.
