For over 60 years, JBL has engineered the precise, naturally articulated sound found in cinemas, arenas and recording studios around the world. That legendary JBL sound is now available anywhere personal audio travels – with a style all its own. JBL J55i headphones employ premium drivers that 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, which frees up one ear to hear outside sound. A single-side, flat elastomer cable resists tangling, and an in-line microphone lets you take calls without taking the headphones off. A twist-lock mechanism secures the detachable cable when it’s connected to the ear-cup, and a rugged strain relief connector dampens resonance that can adversely affect sound quality. Bold styling, including brushed stainless steel ear-cup and headband accents, makes J55i headphones an aesthetic, as well as acoustic, triumph. An extension ring on the jack accommodates most smartphone cases, so you stay connected and your phone stays covered. And a padded carry pouch protects the headphones when they’re not on your ears. Now great JBL sound goes wherever you go.

What's in the box?

  • 1 set of JBL J55i on-ear headphones
  • 1 4' 3-3/16" (1.3M), single-side, detachable, flat elastomer cable
  • 1 padded carry pouch
  • Owner’s manual
  • Warranty card

From the brushed stainless steel headband and ear-cup accents to the matte black or white housings, from the embossed, metallic JBL logos to the cable that matches the ear pads, these headphones are designed to be as pleasing to the eyes as they are to the ears.

JBL drivers deliver precise, powerful sound for an exceptional listening experience. Bass is pure, deep and accurately produced – the calling card of legendary JBL sound. As a result, J55is outperform competitive products costing much more.

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.

Our ear cushions feature a soft leather that provides longwearing comfort. It also helps maintain an acoustic seal on the ear, which improves the headphones’ passive noise reduction. And that means a purer listening experience.

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.

Made specifically for use with iPhone and iPod devices, the in-line remote offers familiar audio playback controls. A built-in microphone lets you answer calls with remarkable clarity while leaving the headphones on.

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.

A unique, twist-lock mechanism keeps the detachable cable secure when it’s connected. When you plug the cable into the ear-cup, a simple twist locks it in place.

A strong, secure connection between the housing and cable is critical for both durability and sound quality. Our rugged strain relief connector dampens vibration for enhanced acoustic performance.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound I usually don't write reviews, but this time I couldn't help writing my experience for this headphone cz this headphone is amazing!!! Fantastic sound and deep base. I saw a lot of reviews talking about the build quality is not very good, but it seems I don't have any problems with this yet. Besides, one year warranty makes me relax~ Overall, it's just a great headphone with great price!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and sound quality! Love the durability and design of these headphones. The 4 ft cord makes plugging into your favorite device easy and you don't always need to be sitting right at the device. Great bass, mid, and lows for superior sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely happy with purchase headphone comes with a durable detachable anti tangle 4ft cable designed with a clever locking mechanism that keeps the cable connected to headphone even if tugged. cable has 3 talk control buttons which work great with iphone5 but plus and minus buttons and mic fail to work on windows phones and androids. dj swivel ear cups is a nice feature that helps storing them. ear cup cushion is extremely soft and it does a some what better job of blocking out outside noise when compared to similarly designed headphones. the headband is a bit tight doesn't fit the contours of my head but instead it circles it like a halo. my point is the j55 headphones not as pretty as other headphones its competing with but the sound it produces well out classes many other notable brands of similar on ear design. I don't know how they do it but these headphones give darn near perfect sound. crisp highs and smooth mids with deep but controlled bass. the j55 work well and play hard with any genre.

My wife got this for me...I try them and not that impress with the sound been that they are JBL I was expecting better quality sound,too much bass and not too much high!! And mids too loud sound it's not balanced as it should... They look good and comes with pouch to put them away I think that's cool!!

So, I got these a couple months ago (the J55i) and the ear pads started falling apart. I could do nothing to fix them, though I was wandering if there were any replacements?

Asked by: Alexis
Since your headphones are within one year from purchase and is still covered under warranty, you can go ahead and send an email case to www.jbl.com/contactus and our customer support team would be able to assist you on the replacement.
