The JBL Everest Elite high-tech headphones have been getting a lot of positive reviews for their excellent sound quality and unbeatable ergonomic attributes, but these headphones can now be used in conjunction with the HTC Vive virtual reality headset to make it possible for you to enjoy a different level of engagement and immersion.

This system works by connecting JBL's proprietary Ambient Aware system with the HTC Vive activity perimeter, which makes it possible for the headphones to automatically go about reducing the audio and turn on the headphone's microphones so that you can listen to what's going on in your surrounding environment.

While there are lots of high-tech headphones out there, many people are concerned that these technologies make people too immersed in their own world, but the JBL Everest Elite's compatibility with the HTC Vive ensures that people can easily snap in and out of their surrounding environment.
