JBL J55i High-Performance On-Ear Headphones with Microphone


Drawing on expertise learned from building some of the finest loudspeakers in the world, JBL engineers created lightweight, over-ear headphones with a fresh look and uncompromising JBL sound. The J55i’s premium drivers generate clarity and extended bass that competitive products simply can’t touch. Pure, accurate bass means you hear the truth from your music. Our unique, DJ pivot mechanism lets you rotate either ear-cup up to 180 degrees, so one ear can hear outside sound. An in-line microphone lets you take calls without taking the headphones off. And bold styling makes J55i headphones an aesthetic, as well as acoustic, triumph.

Serious style, superior performance.

  • One hit wonders sound like world beaters courtesy of the amazing clarity and deep, accurate JBL® Pure Bass
  • Check the scene with the DJ-pivot ear cups that flip up when you need to be aware of external sounds
  • Never lose the beat. The convenient three-button remote control with microphone allows you to answer calls then returns you to your music

Rotating, 180-degree DJ pivot mechanism

Sometimes you need to be aware of more than just your music. J55i ear-cups rotate up to 180 degrees while you’re wearing them so you can keep one ear on your audio and one ear on external sounds or conversations. The ear-cups rotate under the headband for easy storage and transport.


Closed-back design

J55i headphones feature a closed-back design that blocks ambient noise and minimizes leaking. So the outside noise stays outside, and your listening experience stays yours and yours alone.


Single-side, detachable cable

Tangled cables are a constant source of frustration. But not with the J55is. The tangle-resistant, flat elastomer cable connects to just one ear-cup, which further minimizes tangling. The cable also detaches from the ear-cup for added flexibility.


Gold-plated jack with extension ring

The gold-plated jack incorporates an extension ring that works with most custom smartphone covers and cases. So you don’t have to slip off your protective case to connect the headphones.

3 out of 5 eggsIncredible Sound but average quality

Pros: Great Bass! Clear highs. Newegg had a killer price I found hard to resist. Using on Samsung Tab and love the sound now. Came with easy instructions and nice storage bag. Newegg as usual had them to me fast.

Cons: I had expected better quality from JBL. The soft vinyl wrapped foam ear pieces gave way. The joint from cloth to the vinyl has separated. This has affected the overall sound.

Other Thoughts: Regardless, I would still recommend Newegg. Very good prices with fast shipping and processing times.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat headphones. Mic not so much.

Pros: It took a couple months to fully break these in since I don't use them daily. Now that they are however I love them. Bass is great, and it doesn't drown out mids and highs. I'm usually a $20-$30 headphone buyer and these blow anything else I have out of the water. I use them sometimes for music but usually as a headset on my PC for games like Civ 5. For being on ear headphones instead of completely around the ear DJ style these are super comfortable now that they are broken in. That did take a while for me.

Cons: Doesn't matter for me at all since I have a Mod mic attached to the headphones but the built in mic will occasionally cut out when I was still using it. I would have to mute and unmute and wiggle the cord before it started working again. It mostly works and it was Meh quality. 1 egg off for mic since its included on the headphones.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the Money

Pros: Great pair of headphones for what I paid. They feel solid and sound great. Came with a decent case that makes me feel a little more comfortable throwing them in my backpack.

Cons: The volume control doesn't work with my Android but I knew that when I bought them. Play/pause works fine.

Other Thoughts: After years of wearing headphones and hats I have come to the conclusion that my head is narrow. These headphones fit fine and are still comfortable.

2 out of 5 eggsOK sound, poor quality ear pieces

Pros: Cheap; I got these for less than $20.00. They are JBL.

Cons: Uncomfortable, the ear pieces do not cover up my ears entirely. They are square as oppose to circular. My ears start to hurt after 5mins.
The ear pieces tor open after 2 weeks of light usage. Had to RMA them. I get better sound quality from my iPhone 5 stock headphones.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy! The ear piece will tear open on you! They are poorly glued!

1 out of 5 eggsMaterial in headphones separates

Pros: Cheap, decent sound, comfortable, headphone remote is nice

Cons: Have had 2 pairs, and both have had headphone material separate, exposing the foam. You'll see the seam, and it's just glued together and apparently not glued very well. Very sketchy.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Built as well if not better than the Sonys they replaced. The folding mechanism is fine if you a) turn them the correct direction and b) use finesse. Although they are not over-the-ear they are comfortable and the sound is excellent for the price, More portable than I thought they would be.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Nice case was included but not expected.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sounds good, deep bass and good range. Great headphones for the price. Was happy that I got them.

Cons: I would have thought more out of JBL in terms of quality, but the left ear pad started to split now. I'd be pretty upset if I paid full price for these. Disappointed that it didn't hold up as much as my previous $5 CVS headphones.

1 out of 5 eggsBad quality

Pros: Cheap and sound quality is good for the price I paid

Cons: First, the ear cup is small and band is very tight, can't wear it for more than an hour.

The worst part is the quality. The left side earpad falls apart only after 2 months of usage. No, I didn't abuse it. Most of the time it just sits on my desk connected to a desktop and last night the black vinyl covers the pad cracked and I can see the white foam

Other Thoughts: Stay away and don't buy, even if it's on sale.
