Acoustic performance that outclasses the competition.

For over 60 years, JBL® engineers have crafted 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. JBL J55a headphones employ premium drivers that generate pure, accurate, extended bass that competing products simply can’t touch. Superb clarity enables you to 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. A single-sided, flat elastomer cable resists tangling, and a one-button mic/remote lets you take calls from your Android™ device without taking the headphones off. 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 J55a headphones an aesthetic, as well as acoustic, triumph. An extension ring on the jack accommodates most smartphone cases, so you stay connected and your phone stays 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 4 out of 5 by from Many options in the head phone market They block outside noise pretty good and go loud. The wire doesn't stay in the clip very well. As far as comfort they are not as comfortable as the Tim McGraw signature head phones I purchase from Harmonaudio. To summarize, I am glad I purchased these refurbished and did not pay full retail.

do these headphones work on ipones and ipads.

Asked by: bluedeby
Yes. The J55A would work well with iPhones and iPads, though there is a model that would be a better fit, which is the J55I that has a three-button remote that is only compatible with iOS devices.
