JBL J88i Premium Over-Ear Headphones with Microphone

Headphone

How does a company known for engineering some of the finest loudspeakers in the world bring that signature sound to premium over-ear headphones? By engineering some of the finest drivers in the world. The J88’s JBL drivers generate clarity and extended bass that competitive products simply can’t compete with. Pure, accurate bass means you hear the truth from your favourite music and artists. Our unique, DJ pivot mechanism lets you rotate either ear-cup up to 180 degrees, so one ear can hear outside sound. Bold styling sets J88 headphones apart, and the uncompromising sound is pure JBL.


For pure bass in headphones, nothing beats JBL

  • Party like an audiophile thanks to custom-engineered 2-inch (50-millimetre) drivers that produce high resolution, 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
  • Show some class with a sleek, contemporary design that incorporates stainless-steel accents and soft leather ear pads
 
 
Headphone

Rotating, 180-degree DJ pivot mechanism

Sometimes you need to be aware of more than just your music. J88i 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

J88i headphones feature a closed-back design that blocks ambient noise and minimizes leaking. So 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 J88is. The tangle-resistant, flat elastomer cable connects to just one ear-cup, which further minimizes tangling. The cable 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.

3 out of 5 eggsComfortable, decent sound

Pros: Comfortable headset. I can wear it for several hours. Blocks external sound nicely. Sound is very good for non-critical listening.

Cons: The sound is slightly boomy - not super bass, but fills the space between instruments instead of leaving it naturally empty. Sound is good, but definitely not great. My BSR $20 earbuds are way better, but are not so good for long term use because they stop air flow into my ears. Cord is removable, but has a custom plug and is very short. You can't (easily) replace it with a generic cord.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's not bad and I do use it for TV, but for really good music, I would not use it. I'm not an audiophile and I don't have any expensive equipment, so I'm not coming from a purist point of view, etc..

1 out of 5 eggsGreat product, but has no endurance at all

Pros: The package is extremely attractive. The padding is very nice and soft

1 out of 5 eggsBad. Just bad.

Pros: They feel like they are of nice quality.

Cons: Sound is horrible. They have as much bass response as the 1979 Mercury Cougar my grandmother used to drive...which is to say none. Might be good if you only listen to talk radio on AM. The highs are ok but once the bass drops is sounds so bad and unbalanced overall it will pretty much make you laugh. I got them on sale for like $20 so I figured there was a catch and wasn't expecting much...and they are still disappointing. I also bought the JBL 55s. They are better than the 88s, but they still are not good. I bought a $10 pair of headphones from "the biggest retailer" once that sounded WAAAYYY better. I like JBL. I have a pair of JBL tower speakers that sound great. So I'm in no hurry to bash a JBL product, but these are bad. Even if you get them on sale for $10, you over paid.

1 out of 5 eggsWould not recommend!

Pros: -It sounded alright while it still worked. Good sound for the price (bought it for $25)

Cons: -Within 5 month the padding came undo on both earcups. Its good to note that I only used it with my desktop.
-The swivel mechanism broke right out of the gate.
-Shoddy construction. The arch broke after a while. I did drop it 3 times on the carpeted floor.

Other Thoughts: I really would not recommend these headphones to anyone even when its on sale. It has a very poor build quality. I just ended up tossing them out because the RMA process would have cost me the same price as the headphones themselves.

1 out of 5 eggsNice look and feel. Cheaply made.

Pros: Nice price. Nice look. Nice fit. Nice feel.

Cons: Cheaply made. Came apart after a couple months of use. Used duct tape to hold them together until I could buy a different pair.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product to anyone.
