For those who can’t go more than a few hours without being on the go –the new JBL JB56BT Bluetooth® on-ear stereo headphones are the perfect companion. Featuring dynamic, pivoting earcups, along with 40mm advanced drivers that hit home deep with signature JBL PureBass listening, they're every inch a high-performance headphone, the kind you’d expect from the world champion in sound engineering. But that’s just scratching the surface. With one press of a button, the JB56BT switches instantly into a Bluetooth® 3.0 headset with echo-cancelling circuitry. Now you can talk wirelessly with your friends and family with the same sound precision you’d find in a best-in-class headphone. With added features like a USB-rechargeable battery with 12hr life, the JB56BT is custom-designed to go above and beyond your expectations – both in sound and in freedom.

What's in the box?

  • Carry case
  • 1 pair of JBL J56BT Bluetooth® wireless on-ear stereo headphones with rechargeable battery
  • Quick start guide
  • 1 USB-rechargeable cable
  • 1 accessory audio cable

The J56BT comes complete with in-built Bluetooth®3.0 connectivity, giving you the freedom of wireless connection while saving on battery power. They’re stylishly flexible too - with close-back, pivoting earcups that give you freedom, flexibility, and value – all in one package.

Listening to music on the go means having a headphone that’s easy to use. That’s why the J56BT feature simple volume controls on their outer earcup, allowing for seamless, hassle-free functionality. With their USB-rechargeable battery supplying up to 12 hours of power, you can get from point A to B without any worry of the music ever stopping.

Scientifically designed earcup acoustics and premium 40mm drivers are at the heart of JBL PureBass performance, bringing you all the raw power and clarity of pulsing bass - the kind you'd expect from the world leader in concert sound. The result speaks for itself: JBL clarity of sound no matter the frequency or volume, letting you enjoy the deepest-hitting drums without sacrificing even a hint of sound quality.

Part of being flexible means being ready for any occasion. With its built-in microphone that offers signature echo-cancellation technology, your J56BT gives you the same, best-in-class sound quality in your conversations as it does in your music listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL-J56BT Excellent Value We purchased two sets online for our teen boys (17-15) because of sound quality, wireless and cell phone interconnect. Other devices of lower quality were available for more or less $; however, we found the J56BT's to provide a much better listening experience. Lastly, we were thrilled about free shipping and no tax which saved us $28 per headset. Thanks for a exceptional online buying experience without a single glitch.

Does the microphone work while using the wired option? I am trying to use it with an xbox one which doesn't support bluetooth but I can't get the microphone to work.

Asked by: vicbulge
It should work as the cable has a built in microphone. However, some consoles don't recognize the microphone on our headphones due to compatibility issues.
