J56BT is rated 4.4091 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good set of headphones I have had these for a few months and they have been pretty good to me. The battery has only been charged about 5 times since I've owned it over the last 2-3 months. Also the bluetooth works great little to no quality changes from using the included cable. Sound is good quality for the price, the bass is there but could use a little more in my opinion. Mids and highs are pretty well balanced so no worries there, my only problem is they don't crank as loud as I thought they would. Build is also very good with sturdy plastic that doesn't scratch very easy, only the gloss might scratch easy. Also has a metal headband. Included bag is great because it is roomy. Comfort is good the only thing is my right ear hurts after a while but I think it is just me so I wouldn't worry about it. Overall, great deal for the price at a hundred dollars (at this time) compared to the beats at 199.99. Can't go wrong

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound on blue tooth phones I got these a month ago and was not expecting the great sound. JBL out did them selfs with these. If you like a lot of bass these aren't for you but if you want to hear the full spectrum of sound you'll be extremely pleased with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these headphones! Great sound quality! I love the sound blocking and crisp sound. I actually need to buy another pair because everyone wants to use them. The only draw back is not being able to use them while the battery is recharging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product but there is room for improvement These are great. I've tossed my Beats Solo HD to my 12yr old simply because they sound rather bad (it suits her music, not mine). With that said, the JBL's are great, but not perfect. Sound quality is as good as I've heard in a set of entry level headphones. It is way better than any Beats that I've tried. Ive tried many different makes of headphone and this is by far the best sound quality. The areas that it needs to improve on is charging / listening at the same time. And incorporate the remote control function when listening with the cable. If the batter is dead and you are listening via cable then you have to have access to the audio device to change tracks and volume. That's not awesome. I hike a lot and my device is normally in my backpack. Sometimes you just want to to listen to R.E.M. on the uphills :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Wires!!! Love these and I am a big fan of JBL products. These JBL headphones do no disappoint. They are great upgrade from the earbuds that I've used for so many years. The best feature is not having to untangle wires constantly. Love Bluetooth. Sound quality is good in these through your Bluetooth connection, however you can still get slightly better sound quality when the device is connected through the provided wire connection. Bassy songs can get a bit raspy but the sound is smooth and consistent at normal levels. These headsets do leave a little left to be desired from some good punches in bass heavy tracks. I do enjoy using these when watching television shows or movies. The sound produced by these in voice tracks is very good. As far as comfort and fit is concerned, they pass with flying colors. They fit well around my large head and do not put great pressure on my ears but put enough to stay secure when they wrap directly over the head. Placed properly over the ears, these headphones block much of the external sound and leave things to just you and your music. The quality and build of these is right on par for a device in this price range although I do wish the blue panels on the side were built of a more solid plastic. To the touch, these parts of the headphones feel like they could be improved upon. I would like to have seen anodized stainless steel maybe in these areas. Padded surfaces, plastics and the stainless steel portions are just the quality I would expect from a product priced in this range.  Using the buttons on the left side of these is simple and easy to maneuver. Operations work very well with my iPhone 5S and I can easily/regularly switch usage of these on different devices like my laptop and iPad.  Battery life is great so far after a month of usage. I can go up to a week on one charge using them on average an hour each day.  Great introductory Bluetooth headphone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB SOUND FOR MY TREADMILL HARD RUNS! I had tried different in-ear devices but due to my excessive condensation and hard jolting runs, they have always fallen out or as in my Beats earphones, malfunctioned when the condensate seeped in. I've had the JBL-J56BT phones for less than a week and I'm completely sold as the quality is much better than I imagined and they don't fall off or move off of my ears as I move about or start sprints. They are somewhat bulky and stick out around my head but for what they do they're well worth it. I strongly recommend these head phones for people who demand high quality sound when they're in the zone and the condensate is pouring. Keep a cloth or small towel to occasionally pat the ear pads just to be on the safe side unless you sweat very little. Also, the headphones look very impressive and high tech.
