E55BT is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer! Got these after using other JBL headphones for working out, but wanted a pair that is more comfortable for everyday use. Just like other JBL products the sound is incredible. What makes these even more special is the overall craftsmanship of the headphones. They are super comfortable compared to other similar headphones I've tried in the past. The headband I believe is made of some light weight metal so they put some kind of mesh sleeve around it so that it doesn't irritate you while wearing, but still has that sturdy feel it. I also like the use of metal for the hinges so that it's durable. All of these features combine create a well engineered and solid pair of headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL E55BT is Jammin When you put these Bluetooth headphones on you will be jammin...moving and grooving to the fantastic sound of music. When the bluetooth is connected to your music source, the audio and bass is clear and powerful...no joke! The clarity is excellent....it was a joy to hear NO static when I turned my volume up full blast. If you love a big bass like myself, you will not be upset when you hear the clear, crisp sound. The headphones is a cool style that snuggles to your ear with the soft padding on each ear. It's defineitly worth its low cost. JBL as always has stepped up it's game and came out with a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome headphones! The headphone is sturdy and compact. You can fold the ear pieces in and can carry it around in your purse and gym bag. I have jumped up and down with this headphone and it doesn't seem to move around. Although I have not tried working out with the it, I have a feeling it will stay put pretty well. The headphone is very comfy. The look of the headphone is modern and hip. Sound quality is not bad. There is not much bass but overall experience I was very pleased. The volume on the headphone is loud. I mean I will set it on my desk and use it as a speaker while listening to music from my phone. That's pretty amazing! I do carry these headphones with me everywhere I go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfies both sound quality and design! The first look at the product was "very simple" I like simple design. It is a satisfactory design. The most important thing is the sound quality and the Bluetooth connection. Once connected to smart tv and iphone with Bluetooth connection. There was no delay. The quality of the sound is like the JBL products, and the sound with the bass emphasized. No particular problems were found in the product, but the disadvantage is that there is no product storage case.It is regrettable that there is no storage case. As a result, the product's material, design and sound quality are satisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound, Lightweight, Love the Color!!! I received these about 1 week ago. I could honestly say, from the packaging to taking them out the box, these headphones are "KILLER"!!!...they are not the bulky over the headphones that are out in the market today. So easy to sync to my iPhone and my JBL RUMBLE! (Another amazing product from JBL that I purchased!)...you can hear the SUPREME SOUND coming thru the speakers...very CLEAR, CLEAN & CRISP with just the right amount of BASS N BOOM. Having them be wireless is just another plus! I also use them at work, when a call comes in and I'm on my laptop, I LOVE THAT FEATURE!!!...JBL has done it once again. All my speakers are JBL, started with the Micro II, The GO, JBL JEMBE speakers, The RUMBLE!!! (That's my BABY!!! #1)...and I'm so happy and appreciate what great speakers JBL produces. These headphones are in a league of their own!!!...All I can say is, "THANK U SO MUCH JBL!!!"....Oh and did I forget to mention that JBL IS THE OFFICIAL Speaker of Stephen Curry from THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS!!!...with that said and living in THE BAY...THANK U JBL!!!! Can't wait to write my next review.

These headphones work great for music via BT, but for calls, there is a lot of distortion. If I switch the call to the phone for audio output, the call is fine. This has been a persistent issue. Is there a fix? Phone is iPhone6.

Asked by: sonarc
There are 2 possible reasons why the audio distorts on your E55BT during your phone call. 1.BT connection issues. Your phone is placed in a location where it has a difficult time having a stable connection to the headset. 2.If positioning is not a concern. Your phone’s signal may not be that strong which causes a signal distortion. To isolate the issue, please try using a different source. If this doesn't help, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and our Customer Service team will be glad to assist you.

Hi, I have a two questions. a) The sliding power swtich is getting stuck if pressed and slide. Is this a manufacturing defect or do I need to be careful while switching on the power button? b) What's the use of the bluetooth button near the microphone?

Asked by: Wreet
Hi, To answer both your questions: a) The power switch should not get stuck, even when pressed a little while sliding. This may indicate a product defect. I would like to suggest you take your headphones back to the store where you bought these, and have them take a look at it. Alternatively, if you bought them through our webshop, or if the shop won't/can't help you, please send us an email on customer.support@harman.com b) When you need to pair your headphones with a different mobile device, you can press and hold the Bluetooth button >2 seconds, and your headphones will be in pairing mode again. It should show up on mobile devices again, so you can pair with the headphones

Just purchased JBL55BT headphones and it seems that I can't connect them to my Windows 7 PC because of the driver issue. Any suggestions how this can be done?

Asked by: Karlis
The E55BT utilizes the standard Bluetooth Stereo Audio drivers available in most computers. There are two different Bluetooth protocols, one for Headset Audio used for talking on the telephone, and the other for high quality stereo audio listening. Being that the E55BT is a speaker; your computer must connect to the E55BT using the Stereo Audio protocol. Your best bet is to go into your control panel and find the Bluetooth setup. This setup usually provides a setup wizard and will take you through the steps to install the drivers needed for Stereo Audio.

Hi, 2 questions: 1. is the mic build in the headphones? or must i connect them with cable? 2. can the headphones be connected to PC & android phone? PC in order to listen to music, phone for voice calls, whats-app voice record & such

Asked by: avka
Hi, The microphone is built-in in the headphones, so you won't need to connect a cable for using the microphone. As for your 2nd question, that's a bit more difficult to answer :) You can connect your headphones to all Android / iOS mobile devices, for audio playback, and to have handsfree phonecalls. However, the microphone will only work with normal phonecalls, voice recording and WhatsApp is not possible with this built-in microphone, as it will only activate on phonecalls ( and not 3rd party apps installed on mobile devices ) You can also connect the headphones to your PC, either by cable, or by bluetooth if you have the correct drivers for Bluetooth installed ( Generic Windows drivers for A2DP - Bluetooth Audio Protocol ) If you require further assistance, please contact us on customer.support@harman.com

Hi! I just got these headphones. I was trying out the answer-calls function in BT mode. But it appears to only be working for "real" calls not voice calls like WhatsApp. If I receive a call there, press the button on the headphones to pick up, it ends it

Asked by: JuliaF
Hi Julia, Sadly, the Bluetooth headphones don't recognize WhatsApp as normal phonecalls, since it's a 3rd party app handling these calls ( Voice over IP ). If you require further assistance, please contact us on customer.support@harman.com

Is the microphone compatible with PC's (gaming, skype etc) or is it for hands-free usage only?

Asked by: RJ88
