JBL sound is always worth protecting. An included carry case keeps the device safe from bumps and bruises.
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. The premium JBL drivers in J88 headphones generate clarity and extended bass that competitive products simply can’t compete with. Pure, accurate bass means you hear the truth from your favorite 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 the J88 headphones apart, while a padded headband and ear cushions make them as comfortable as they are distinctive. A single-side, flat elastomer cable resists tangling and an extension ring on the jack accommodates most smartphone cases, so you stay connected and your phone stays covered. 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. And a padded carry pouch protects the headphones when they’re not over your ears. JBL engineers take professional audio technology personally. With J88 over-ear headphones, you can too.

Bold JBL design and premium finishing
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.
Premium, high-performance JBL drivers
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, J88 headphones outperform competitive products costing much more.
Rotating, 180-degree DJ pivot mechanism
Sometimes you need to be aware of more than just your music. J88 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.
Soft leather ear cushions
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.
J88 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.
Single-side, detachable cable
Tangled cables are a constant source of frustration. But not with the J88s. 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.
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.
Rugged strain relief
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.
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.
Padded carry pouch
JBL sound is always worth protecting. An included padded carry pouch keeps the headphones safe from bumps and bruises when you’re not wearing them.
