Drawing on expertise learned from building some of the worlds finest loudspeakers, JBL engineers have created lightweight, on-ear headphones with a fresh look and uncompromising sound. The J55a drivers generate pure, accurate, extended bass that competing products cant touch. Their superb clarity enables you to hear the truth from your music. JBLs unique DJ-pivot mechanism lets you rotate either ear cup up to 180 degrees, so one ear can hear outside sound. A one-button mic/remote lets you take AndroidTM calls without taking the headphones off. And bold styling makes J55a headphones both an aesthetic and acoustic triumph.
Bold JBL design and premium finishing
From the brushed stainless-steel headband and ear-cup accents to the matte black or white housings, and 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, J55a headphones outperform competing products costing much more.
Rotating, 180-degree DJ-pivot mechanism
Sometimes you need to be aware of more than just your music. J55a ear cups rotate up to 180 degrees while youre 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.
Soft leather ear cushions
The ear cushions feature a soft leather that provides long-wearing 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.
J55a 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.
Android-compatible, one-button remote with microphone
Made for use with Android devices, the in-line remote offers standard playback functions. A built-in microphone lets you answer calls with remarkable clarity while leaving the headphones on.
Single-sided, detachable cable
Tangled cables are a constant source of frustration. But not with the J55as. Their 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.
A unique twist-lock mechanism keeps the detachable cable secure when its 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 the cable is critical for both durability and sound quality. JBLs 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 dont 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 youre not wearing them.
