"I have many headphones up to 125$ range, but this JBL J55 out do all...As im writing this review im listening to Beats Solo HD which cost a lot more, and it sounds very good, but J55 is better, just like any one, i just want a headset that sounds great, and J55 does it all, the price fools you, it should costs about 120$, but it only cost 39$, but J55 sounds clear, loud, and clean...For the price you cant beat it...buy it and be happy, dont look further or waste your money like i did...best buy...stay with JBL they know sounds and speakers."

Quality

Quality:
"Well I honestly didn't notice a difference or find that I liked one set better than the other as far as sound quality, but the 50s (over-ear style) would become annoyingly painful after just a short time wearing them...so I did what any sensible consumer would do - I paid postage to return the 50s and used the refund to get three more sets of these babies with plenty of change to spare (one extra set for me at home and two to give as gifts, even though I didn't have anyone in mind to give them to)."
