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.

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.

1 out of 5 eggsPadding torn out of the box!

Pros: sound quality ok

Cons: The padding was torn out of box. If this was new then the QA is shameful.

2 out of 5 eggsGood sound, garbage casing

Pros: Good sound and they look professional.

Cons: The plastic cup on the right side snapped within a week of using them and now about 6 months later, the top plastic has snapped. So now the headphones do not wrap around my head snuggly and they need tape just to hold them together.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy!

2 out of 5 eggsearphones

Pros: The price.

Cons: The lining was not correctly attached and the foam was showing. This was not from wear and tear, they were this way out of the box.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy these

Pros: Seems to be a good solid built headset until you use it for a few weeks.

Cons: I had ordered two and returned both since the inside cover on the foam was peeling off. Newegg was nice enough after I sent pictures that they replaced them both. Well, both of the new ones shipped 2 months ago have now the same problem. It's likely bad batch or just shoddy manufacturing..which explains why Newegg said they were 80% off. Four out of 4 bad in 2 shipments can't be a coincidence.

2 out of 5 eggsJBL J88i Premium Over-Ear Headphones

Pros: Comfortable
Decent sound
Ear cups swivel
Inexpensive (shell shocker deal, I think)

Cons: Ear cup cover is coming off after two months of not-very-heavy use.

Other Thoughts: They're falling apart after two months; they're inexpensive for a reason. If you do decide to get these, put them on and take them off by touching only the hard plastic at the back of the ear cups.I''m obviously not guaranteeing anything, but they'll stand a better chance of lasting.

1 out of 5 eggsEar cushion/cups fell apart

Pros: Good Sound.

Cons: Ear cups fell apart. They are sewn but the stitching come right out. I've never had this happen on even cheap head phone before! Don't waste you money.
