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

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.

expected more from jbl 5/10/2016 6:42:42 PM

Pros: Low cost, decent sound for average listening

Cons: Low build quality, not worth anywhere near retail price

Overall Review: Bought these expecting jbl quality. Only used them a few times per week and within less than a year the ear pads fell apart. Looking for another brand in the future in hopes of better reliability.

not worth the trouble 4/13/2016 10:18:57 AM

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.

Overall Review: 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.

GOOD QUALITY 2/24/2016 10:55:00 AM

Pros: -Great listening quality.

Cons: -Slight static when quiet.

Overall Review: -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).

Pros: Great sound

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 Its 3 years+ old model which the technology and compatibility are seriously outdated.

Great sound, poor build quality 11/6/2015 9:00:29 AM

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.

Overall Review: 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.

Incredible Sound but average quality 7/29/2015 10:17:02 PM

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.

Overall Review: Regardless, I would still recommend Newegg. Very good prices with fast shipping and processing times.
