JBL E55BT review


These JBLs are a solid bet if you want wireless on a limited budget

Good value ; Solid Bluetooth reliability ; Full-sounding bass

Slow bass decay ; Occasionally brash mids

A reasonable effort, but JBL needs to do more to impress

JBL E55BT review

  (Rating Hidden)

The JBL E55BT over-ear headphones are a wireless Bluetooth pair. They're available for quite a bit less than the headline offerings from brands such as Sony and Bose, but do they cut the mustard when it comes to sound quality and comfort? Read on to...

JBL E55BT Quincy Edition review


Quincy Jones fans will love the clean looks and tight sound profile the legend brings to the JBL E55BT.

Bright, vibrant upper register ; Wide soundstage ; Stylish design ; Easy connectivity ; Above-average battery life

Poor passive noise isolation ; Restrained bass response ; Pricier than base model

The JBL E55BT Quincy Edition wireless headphones offer a bright and clear sound signature, an intuitive and comfortable design, and good looks to pair with the legendary producer’s music.

JBL E55BT review: Wireless headphones deliver solid sound, comfy fit


JBL's new top-end model in its "value" E-Series Bluetooth headphone line doesn't quite wow, but does deliver solid sound and a comfortable fit.

The JBL E55BT is an attractively designed over-ear Bluetooth headphone that's relatively comfortable, sounds decent and works reliably. It folds up and flat and has decent battery life.

A bit of treble push, no carrying case included.

JBL's new top-end model in its "value" E-Series Bluetooth headphone line delivers solid sound and a comfortable fit for the price.

JBL's E55BT headphones deliver a high-quality Bluetooth experience with rich, boosted bass response matched by crisp highs.

Powerful audio performance with strong bass and crisp highs. Exceptionally comfortable, even during long listening sessions. Includes cable for wired, passive listening.

No included carrying case or pouch. Sculpted sound signature not for purists.

Generally speaking, the E55BT headphones offer a sculpted-but-balanced audio experience, with robust bass response and crisp, clear highs. It's not a flat response sound signature, but it will appeal to listeners who like a little added bass depth...

JBL E55BT Wireless Headphones – Who Needs an Audio Jack? [Review]


I love headphones. I love how personal they are. That you can listen to your own music, videos, or games without disturbing other people and the same goes in reverse. I have kids who are constantly listening to music and videos and most of the time, I...

Great sound, nice quality


Really happy with the headphones, comfortable to wear, look smart in black, seem well made, great sound and they fold up which is handy. Would have been good if a bag was included for travel etc.
