Acoustic performance that outclasses the competition

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 J55 headphones employ premium drivers that generate clarity and extended bass that competitive products simply can’t touch. Pure, accurate bass lets 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. The padded headband and ear cushions enhance comfort, and the single-side, flat elastomer cable resists tangling. 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 J55 headphones an aesthetic, as well as acoustic, triumph. An extension ring on the jack accommodates most smartphone cases, so you can stay connected and your phone can stay covered. And a padded carry pouch protects the headphones when they’re not on your ears. Now great JBL sound goes wherever you go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You want these headphones I have had my pair for 3 or four months and i still love them. All sounds are true. Bass is on point with mid and highs. These have started a collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound for the price I've used seinheiser and audiotechnica headphones that are around this price point, and these blow them away. These have a lot of treble and bass which I really tend to appreciate. If you're on a budget, these sound amazing. I wound up with two pairs. The first pair lasted a year of heavy use and the material around the ears started to come apart from the headphone, but they're still perfectly usable. The second pair hasn't been used nearly as much and has remained in basically brand new condition. My only complaint is they are not over ear. The sound is spectacular though.

What is the warranty on these headphones? I have a pair and truly like them, but the black material covering the foam ear-piece just popped its seam exposing the foam. Any chance JBL stands behind their product?

Asked by: Jarvis
I have the exact same problem. Never had on any other headphone
