Sound matters to three-time GRAMMY® award-winner Tim McGraw. And it certainly matters to JBL® engineers. So when they teamed up to design on-ear headphones, audio performance was no accident. “As an artist, I want my fans to hear and experience music the way I do,” says McGraw. “So I’ve teamed up with JBL to bring you a line of headphones that have been tuned to do just that.” The JBL Tim McGraw Artist Series headphones are voiced to deliver the sonic signature that pros demand and have trusted JBL engineers to deliver for over 60 years. Their oversized, high-performance drivers reproduce every bass note and vocal moment effortlessly, and their semi-open design delivers a concert-hall size spatial image. Their velvet fabric ear cushions and headband enable hours of continuous, comfortable listening free from fatigue. The TMG81s, available in two distinctive styles, fold flat for easy transport, so you can take great JBL sound with you wherever you go.

High-performance, oversized drivers

The JBL Tim McGraw TMG81 headphones employ 1-5/8-inch (40-millimeter) drivers to generate an impressive frequency response (18Hz – 24kHz). You hear accurate sound across a wide dynamic range, anchored in exceptional deep, rich JBL bass.

Semi-open back

The TMG81s deliver excellent spatial imaging thanks to their semi-open design. This acoustically tuned venting produces a naturally open, spacious sound.

Velvet fabric ear cushions and fabric headband

The padded ear cushions and headband on the TMG81 model headphones are covered with soft fabric that breathes. They not only rest comfortably on your ears and head, but they also stay cool for hours of comfortable, fatigue-free listening.

Distinctive colors and graphics

The TMG81 headphones are available in two styles: white with gold accents and black with silver accents. Both styles feature Tim McGraw’s signature on the ear cups and “Tim McGraw” on the headband, while the black headphones incorporate a graphic design. Whichever option you choose, it’s an appealing blend of style and performance.

2D-axis folding mechanism

The ear-cups on the TMG81s fold flat when you’re not using them. This feature makes the headphones easy to transport and store.

99.99% oxygen-free cable

For clean audio-signal transmission, the TMG81 headphones use a 99.99% oxygen-free cable. This single-sided cable connects to just one ear cup, giving you freedom of movement and reducing tangling.

Threaded 1/8" (3.5mm) gold-plated jack and 1/4" (6.3mm) gold-plated adapter

You can enjoy the TMG81 headphones with your home audio components simply by using the included 1/4-inch (6.3-millimeter) adapter jack. The 1/8-inch (3.5-millimeter) main jack is threaded to ensure the optimal audio connection.

Tim McGraw On Ear Headphones is rated 3.3478 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones I am not a professional when it comes to sound, however the sound that comes out from these headphones is truly superior to the sound from other headphones (Sony, Panasonic, etc.). The price that I paid for them during Black Friday week contributed to this overall review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was my best pair I have multiple over the ear head phones and these were my favorite by far. My cat chewed through the cord so I have ordered a couple more of them (not cats but JBL headphones).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Headphones I've had my headphones for about a year and nothing has gone wrong. I listen to music whenever i can and i always use my JBL headphones. I got them for free as a gift to my mother, but she didn't want them so i wanted them. They are like two little clouds sitting on my ears while i rock out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice headphone My first JBL product was the sound system on my Dell XPS laptop. The effect impressed me so much that I really "heard the truth". This time I live in an apartment so that I cannot use my amplifier on my laptop, so I bought this headphone after compared with other JBL products. This headphone has almost the same effect as JBL amplifiers. The bass and stereo are so clear that I don’t need to turn on MaxxAudio or Dolby effects. Although it does not seem to be very durable, it is very comfortable, and is affordable for those who want to own a professional headphone. It is said that the wire would be as long as 3 meters, but it is actually 1.8 meters.
