JBL J55i High-Performance On-Ear Headphones with Microphone

Headphone

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
 
 
Headphone

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.

 
Headphone

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.

 
Headphone

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.

 
Headphone

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.

2 out of 5 eggsFine headphones but plastic broke after very little use

Pros: Sound quality is fine. Not really audiophile so I was fine with most headphones

Cons: The plastic part in the middle literally broke off after I had tried to put it on. I don't even use it much, around once a month (I really don't use headphones unless I have to). Then one day I tried to put it on and I simply stretched the earpieces to about my head width and the plastic snapped. I've only had this item for a year and it broke after I used it about 20times? I dont' know if it's worth it anymore.

Other Thoughts: It's entirely possible that it's just my case that my plastic is bad but still I didn't get my money's worth out of it. Very inconvenient.

2 out of 5 eggsnot worth the trouble

Pros: ultra low price for over the ear phones.

Cons: Sound is average and cord is flimsy and shorts the sound out. The transport buttons work intermitently. I tried writing to get a resolution and was totally ignored. cord is too long and trips me up all the time. it's really really long.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. apparently, I paid for a product disintegrating on my head and nobody to take care of me, the customer. Wish I had just saved up for something sturdy with good performance.

4 out of 5 eggsGOOD QUALITY

Pros: -Great listening quality.

Cons: -Slight static when quiet.

Other Thoughts: -I only paid 25 bucks for a $100 pair of headphones. It's worth it for that price. I did have to buy a mic adapter to use the mic on my PC (my fault for not researching more).

2 out of 5 eggsSounds is okay but......

Pros: Great sound

Cons: Painful on the ear. I experience this with every headphones I used in the past, wonder if the fault is the headphone or my big ears....
biggest complaint, MIC DOES NOT WORK ON YOUR PC OR ANY DEVICES BESIDES PHONES AND IPODS.
I brought this headset so i can talk while gaming. It's not gonna happened. Its made for iphones. how STUPID

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this. Its 3 years+ old model which the technology and compatibility are seriously outdated.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat sound, poor build quality

Pros: Great sound. Detachable cord.

Cons: The seam on the ear pieces came apart in less than a year of very mild use. Search other reviews, it is a very common issue.

Other Thoughts: If you buy these, keep the warranty card that comes with them. It's the only thing that has the serial number and you cant do an RMA without it.

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.
