J55 ear-cups rotate up to 180 degrees while you’re wearing them so you can keep one ear on your audio and one ear on external sounds or conversations

Key Features

Bold JBL design and premium finishing

From the brushed stainless steel headband and ear-cup accents to the matte black or white housings, from the embossed, metallic JBL logos to the cable that matches the ear pads, these headphones are designed to be as pleasing to the eyes as they are to the ears.

Premium, high-performance JBL drivers

JBL drivers deliver precise, powerful sound for an exceptional listening experience. Bass is pure, deep and accurately produced – the calling card of legendary JBL sound. As a result, J55s outperform competitive products costing much more.

Rotating, 180-degree DJ pivot mechanism

Sometimes you need to be aware of more than just your music. J55 ear-cups rotate up to 180 degrees while you’re wearing them so you can keep one ear on your audio and one ear on external sounds or conversations. The ear-cups rotate under the headband for easy storage and transport.

The tangle-resistant, flat elastomer cable connects to just one ear-cup, which further minimizes tangling




Soft leather ear cushions

Our ear cushions feature a soft leather that provides longwearing comfort. It also helps maintain an acoustic seal on the ear, which improves the headphones’ passive noise reduction. And that means a purer listening experience.

Closed-back design

J55 headphones feature a closed-back design that blocks ambient noise and minimizes leaking. So the outside noise stays outside, and your listening experience stays yours and yours alone.

Single-side, detachable cable

Tangled cables are a constant source of frustration. But not with the J55s. The tangle-resistant, flat elastomer cable connects to just one ear-cup, which further minimizes tangling. The cable also detaches from the ear-cup for added flexibility.

Cable-locking mechanism

A unique, twist-lock mechanism keeps the detachable cable secure when it’s connected. When you plug the cable into the ear-cup, a simple twist locks it in place.

Rugged strain relief

A strong, secure connection between the housing and cable is critical for both durability and sound quality. Our rugged strain relief connector dampens vibration for enhanced acoustic performance.

Gold-plated jack with extension ring

The gold-plated jack incorporates an extension ring that works with most custom smartphone covers and cases. So you don’t have to slip off your protective case to connect the headphones.

Padded carry pouch

JBL sound is always worth protecting. An included padded carry pouch keeps the headphones safe from bumps and bruises when you’re not wearing them.

Chances are, many of your favorite songs and movie soundtracks were mixed and mastered on JBL studio monitors – they’ve been the choice of audio professionals for more than 60 years. But you don’t have to venture far from home to experience the legendary power, clarity and technical accuracy of the JBL sound. It’s available in exceptional home entertainment systems that incorporate many of the same advanced technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques that we originally developed for professional systems.

A really good product. JBL has managed to retain its reputation with this one. Bass is very rich and so is the treble. JBL has designed the J series for premium sound quality, integrating their professional Sound expertise into the consumer line. Excellent sound quality, in fact premium sound quality, on par with any $250-$300 range headphone. An excellent value for money over Beats, monster, Soul or any other brand. Only drawback is the build quality, not metal (although has a metal head band) and its plastic, which is sort of flimsy. It comes with premium wiring and a proprietary gold plated JBL aux cable with 2.5mm at one and and 3.5mm at the other, so make sure not to loose it as it wont be available from 3rd party sellers. There is soft carry pouch which comes with the packing, ideal for travel, which is of very good quality. 40mm full spectrum drivers deliver thumping bass and rich notes.Its got good impedance of 32ohms and a very good frequency response range of 10-24 Khz and noise isolation is pristine, although leaks sound a little bit. It doesnt have a noise cancellation and does not come with an airline adapter, so not ideal for flying/aviation. The size is an exact fit for everyday travelling use in the car, bus or train. Very stylish indeed, when I used this the first day, I had several people asking me about this. The product packing is one of the best i ve seen for any headphone. In fact, the packing itself would give you an impression that this is a top of the line product. Extremely comfortable to wear and Music lovers should try this. Bang for the buck. You can go for a J55i, which is technically the same, except that its got a volume control+mic designed for Apple products. Don't waste your money spending $200-$300 for sub par headphones, go for this !!! Highly recommended.Read more ›

Let's talk pros.

The sound quality is exceptional. I bought these to replace a previous pair of headphones that I owned that gradually wore a short in the cord running to the headphones. The quality of these headphones is exceptional, especially for the price.

I also really love the design. The buttons are very user friendly. The center button will pause your music which is perfect for when someone is trying to talk to you while you're listening to music.

Here's the catch. After 4 1/2 months of light use, and I mean light use. Maybe once a week, sometimes not that, the stitching is tearing in the insides of the headphones. I've included pictures to further illustrate my problem.

These headphones are also abnormally tight on your head. I wear glasses, and within minutes of wearing the headphones I have very bad pains behind my ears.

Overall I wouldn't recommend the headphones solely based on the length of time the stitching stayed together, because not wearing my glasses allowed me to have an enjoyable experience. Hope this helps.

Audio is very important to me and it seems I've been on a never-ending quest for the perfect affordable headphone. Ever since my Sony noise canceling headphones croaked I've been searching but can't bring myself to spend $200 on headphones again. JBL is a very reputable company and they know how to do quality. I was a projectionist and can tell you that most movie theaters use JBL speakers in their auditoriums. I was excited to see what they would bring to an upscale headset. After using them for a few weeks I can say that they are decent but far from perfect.

They sound great for their construct. They have great sound replication and handle all ranges quite well. They may lack the "oomph" on the lows that some other headphones deliver, but I'm not a fan of bass heavy phones anyway. I listen to mostly film scores and they do a great job at handling intricate sounds and textures as well as the wall-to-wall sound of pop and rock. The sound isn't as full-bodies as I hoped it would be, but for the price it's pretty darn good.

The build is great as well. They are light and comfortable and easy to store. I'm an "over the ear" kind of guy but found these "on ear" phones to be pretty satisfactory. The cushions are comfy and the band doesn't put too much pressure on your ears. Even when they're stretched to the limit over my gigantic head. The set is sleek enough that you can carry it with you on the go and won't have to worry about looking like a doofus with giant headphones on. The built in mic is a nice added feature that can make it great to use with your phone and take calls.

So, in the end these are decent headphones.

I am not the type to want to spend $300 on a pair of headphones and I needed some to use at work. I have been using these for 3 hours now at work and the only problem is they are rather tight on my big head I guess. I can feel the pressure on the top of my head and they are really stuck to the ear which causes the ear to get warm. Get what you pay for I assume but they will do for now. The audio quality is good enough.
