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

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.

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.

Good

Pros: Had them for over 6 months, fall to sleep with them and they are still perfect.

Cons: Leave a hair imprint after wearing for 4+ hrs

Other Thoughts: 20$ for a pair like this I would say is worth it.

Bad product and worst customer serivce

Pros: Base is good

Cons: The head wrap band easily went broken
the customer servicePaul Darren Vinzon treats customer like nothing, and just lying and even completely ignore your emails.
No one cares to solve the issues after sending back for replacement.

Other Thoughts: The headphone's head band was broken in just a few months, after I sent back the headphone to the company, the company sent out a replacement package to me which only included only a Padded carry pouch. It was ridiculous, after communicating with them for more than 10 times, they just told me that they were checking with the warehouse,

Hi Nic,

Thank you for your patience, Were still waiting for a response coming from our warehouse. Once they response on my email. I will call you back or I will send you an email regarding on the status of your replacement.

We apologize for the inconvenience.



Best Regards,

Paul Darren Vinzon

that was for 2 months, come on. This is really a bad and ridiculous service experience I ever received from a company, after tens of emails with on and off communications, now the communication is lost again. I really don't know how long would take HCG to solve a simple replacement issue without making errors. Now the communication with this Paul is lost, he no longer return emails or responding. I tried to write to the customer support and seems no response at all. They won't tell you what the result is and what they would do, they just tricked you to send back the product without fix it. I would never ever buy anything from Harman or JBL again.

Comfortable, 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..

Bad. 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.
