JBL J88 Premium Over-Ear Headphones


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

Rotating, 180-degree DJ pivot mechanism

The J55's 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. They also rotate under the headband for easy storage and transport.


Closed-back design

The J55s 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

The J55s have a tangle-resistant, flat elastomer cable that connects to just one ear-cup, which further minimizes tangling. The cable also detaches from the ear-cup, while a twist-lock mechanism keeps it secure when connected


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.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE these cans :)

Pros: Very comfortable to wear for extended listening sessions.
I like the fact that the removable cable locks in to place.
I'm not an audiophile (I would be if I could afford it) but like almost everyone, I LOVE my music! These cans, IMHO, have a very nice frequency range. The bass isn't gonna rattle your teeth, but you definitely know it's there. The bass is very crisp and punchy. It's not muddy at all. Throw in the beautiful sounding mids and highs and your ears will be quite happy!

Cons: Some people reviewing these have stated that the plastic head band has broken on them. I can see that happening if you're not careful putting them on or taking them off. They're a bit flimsy. There IS a metal band running through the plastic headband, so it's not like they're gonna break in half. Just be gentle with them and you should be fine.
The cord is a little short for my taste. Another couple feet would have been nice.

Other Thoughts: You're definitely gonna notice a difference in performance depending on what you have these plugged into. For example, they sound nice plugged into my iPhone, but it just doesn't have enough juice to push these. I have a dedicated sound card in my PC with a 600 ohm headphone amplifier that really makes these sound amazing!
