JBL E55BT Quincy Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible headphones I bought them a year ago and it's my first time buying bluetooth headphones. I am very happy with them. I bought them around 130$ and i think that it was a bargain. I use them all the time. For watching movies or hearing songs when I am jogging. The sound quality is incredible despite the fact that this edition doesn't have noise cancelling The battery life is unbelievable. I am charging them once a week. Highly recommended to anyone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than expected As someone who has been reading BT headset reviews for a few years now, there is something everyone should understand by now. There are no headphones designed to last more than a few years (short of studio headphones that do not travel, and cost an arm + leg + and your first born). Every single type of headphone has reviews stating they break easily, don't last, fall apart, etc. You cannot avoid this, and as such, I have been on the outside of the headphone craze, unwilling to replace my decent earbuds with something that cost ten times the dollar amount, and might give me a year or two of listening. With that said, I found these JBL's in a clearance section at TJ Maxx, and after refreshing my memory with the reviews, decided to take the plunge. It has only been three months since my faithful leap, so I cannot comment on durability, but I must say, that even if I had paid full price, these would be worth it. While a first time owner, I have listened to countless headsets in stores, and from friends over the years, and could not be happier with these JBL's. At the time of writing, they were selling for one hundred and forty dollars on the JBL website, and while I only paid eighty dollars, the one forty is still a good value. I make sure to be careful with them, and really like how the ear cups lay flat so when I wear them around my neck, they are not in cumbersome. Sound quality is at or above all other headphones priced under $250, and are more comfortable, esspecially Beats, which I have no idea why people love. Battery life is quite good, and with an app, you can monitor the level, and adjust the equalizer to your taste, so please people, stop talking about the bass levels! They are quality over the ear BT headphones, and they work well, last, and sound great. One more PSA: Stop writing reviews before you READ THE OWNERS MANUAL! You can skip songs! The buttons do make sense! They do work well with phone calls!

Is this a good headset for gaming and discord calls?

Asked by: Thomas147485
I used these for PUBg and Fortnite. These headphones emphasise the sound of footsteps and have great sound reproduction. They don't get too loud at certain times and are loud. The microphone is very good. I don't gave to talk too loud and the other players can hear clearly. I would pick these headphones over beats. With Beats, its harder to hear footsteps.

Does this offer better sound quality then the standard E55BT or is the difference the design and endorsement by Quincy Jones 

Asked by: Walker69
Hi Thanks for reaching out to us. "Better" sound is very relative and personal. The E55BT Quincy Edition's sound design ( tuning ) is done in collaboration with Quincy Jones, and it sounds different than the standard E55BT. You would have to try it for yourself to hear the difference. We have 30 days return right on our website, so you could even order both, and contact our customer support when you're ready to return the one you don't wish to keep, within those 30 days

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.
