Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Gift for my musician son, and he likes them. High praise! Normal Bluetooth delay so he uses the wire when playing. Comfortable and capable with classic JBL flat, accurate reproduction. Ask again in 5 years to see how they hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these headphones I bought these several months ago and I am so happy I did the sound is amazing and great the headphones are made well and are easy to use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I Ever Wanted This pair definitely has everything I was looking for: wireless, long battery life, perfect EQ balancing (despite the strong bass, it doesn't get too "boomy" on the low end when you turn up the volume), and sleek design (personally this is sleeker than the other JBL headphone designs). 50mm drivers were already a plus, but then add on Quincy Jones, and I was sold. However, I would've only been able to afford this product during Black Friday, so thank goodness customer service helped me get the original Black Friday pricepoint when my original order was cancelled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I really like these Headphones. I like them because of the versatility (wired or wireless) The sound quality is amazing. I like to use them to make phone calls. Again if you are listen to music or watching a movie the Sound Quality is amazing. I use the headphones mostly with my Work PC and my Samsung Galaxy S8 plus phone.

How long is the bluetooth audio range? I use bluetooth headphones for my pc and if I go to the other side of my room it starts lagging the sound and eventually disconnects. 

Asked by: mmc3433
The Bluetooth range varies.  Under normal circumstances, you can expect a range of 10 meters with no problems.  More than that, the signal will get unstable.  Bluetooth can also be heavily influenced by surrounding environment depending on what other signals you have at your place that could interrupt and wall material between speakers. If there is no obstruction between the speakers and you are still experiencing this issue, please submit a case at https://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and our Customer Service team will be glad to further assist you.

How is the base on these headphones? How is the sound overall? I use to have beats solo 2 and they felt fragile and flimsy. The sound was good. I want to know if this is worth an upgrade with sound asap.

Asked by: JayProdigy
The frequency response for the E55BT QUINCY EDITION goes down to 20-20kHz which enhances music rich in bass and provides sound quality. For more information, please visit the E55BT Quincy Edition product page on JBL.com, thank you!

I have a Mac mini connected to my samsung TV with HDMI cable which works for both audio and video. If I connect this headphones to my Mac mini via bluetooth will the sound play on headphones? I don't want sound on TV only on headphones. Will that work?

Asked by: Vikas4290
This would require changing settings on both the TV and your mac mini to put the audio signal into the headphones instead of the tv speakers and the mac mini speakers.

Is there a microphone built into the headphones. i.e. can you have a phone conversation without the cable plugged in?

Asked by: Kevin L
Hi, Yes, there is a microphone built-in in the headphones, so you can have handsfree phonecalls without needing a cable connected between your mobile phone and headphones. If you require further assistance, please contact our Customer Support

Are you able to daisy chain this pair of headphones with another so that you can share your music with a friend?

Asked by: citygirl1238
Unfortunately that feature is unavailable with the JBL E55BT Quincy edition. The devices that can do that feature would be the JBL Everest 710 and the JBL Everest 310.

How good/bad is the sound leakage on these?

Asked by: Johnp888
Because these are Over the Ear headphones, you should not experience any sound leakage.

Will a 3-button remote cord from a different maker retain complete functionality with these headphones (will all 3 buttons perform their functions)?  And do these headphones need to be charged in order to function, even if I'm using the cord?

Asked by: ArchAngel27
Using a 3-button remote code from a third party will not retain its functionality. The headphones can utilize the cord without having it charged.
