In theory, the best sounding new JBL earbuds should be the LIVE Pro 2. They have the biggest sound drivers, measuring at 11mm each. The design is also different, looking a lot more like the AirPods Pro with the earbuds’ stems, but with a matte finish. The LIVE Pro 2 earbuds look very stylish indeed.
