JBL E55 BT Wireless Over Ear Headphones - Black
South Africa

I purchased these excellent wireless & wired headphones after my biggest mistake in purchasing the Philips SHP 2000 headphones. The sound clarity, noise reduction and look is absolutely the best I've heard in a long while. I highly recommend these to anyone wanting to move from wired to wireless headphones!

Worth every cent. Sound is uncredible with loads of bass. Battery life is awesome too. Highly recommended!!

Battery life is really great. Sound quality is very good. A nice comfortable fit that I can wear for hours no problem.

Very good value for money
Acceptable battery life, they last for about 8-10 hours at low volume (2-3 bars on my iPhone)
Sound is fine
Pronounced bass (I like this but it may annoy some)
Comes with an orange charging cable

The plastic feels cheap, especially the buttons
The ear cups are a little small for me so they tend to hurt my ears if I wear them for more than 2-3 hours
The midrange and highs are a little muddy
No carry case

This really is an awesome headset. The dynamic range is great and well balanced. The bass is also great. The setup was quick and easy. They are comfortable on your head and ears. The battery life is also great. The only disappointment is that they have no protective carry case or just even a JBL zip material bag like I had with my wired set. Overall a great buy and I’m extremely happy with my purchase.

Very happy with these. Wish they blocked out more external sound but I still rate them 5/5 and would recommend them!

Excellent sound. I own Beats by Dre as well, but it is overpriced. These headphones are lightweight and good value for money.

Got these headphones for 2weeks now and they are great! Super comfortable, blocks out external sound quite well, frequency levels sounds great (bit of bass if you are a looking for a flat sound) but can manage, battery lasts for ages and charges quickly. This is really the bang for bucks. The only thing I found this far is that the bluetooth's range isn't that good and might breakup or become scratchy. Also using it on the phone when talking to someone the other person complains that the signal breaks up however, I only tried it once. The other nice thing is that it connects to my laptop and phone at the same time which is pretty cool. Overall I'm a happy chappy!

Very happy with this purchase. Sound isn't up there with the best of the best, but it's better than anything else I've heard in this price range. Decent, clear sound and bass isn't overpowering so you can wear them for hours.

Comfy snug fit.
Bluetooth works better than expected. Being able to pair two devices makes swapping between my phone and laptop seamless.
Have had them for about 2weeks and have used it about 4 days at work, and haven't had to charge it yet so it's safe to say that the battery lifetime is exceptional.
Folds up nice and small.

Would have loved if it came with a case, but for the price and quality of the headphones I guess I can't be too picky.
Buttons on the sides could have been placed better or have better separation as sometimes I tend to press the middle button instead of the volume up/down, but this is just me being finicky.

As usual received it promptly. These are amazing headphones! I mainly use them in church (what they were bought for) and I can listen to and questions other tracks whist the worship team are playing and not hear them at all! Will highly recommend!

Love it!

Big Mike says these headphones are God's work!

Very good all round performance.

Really good sound. Super comfortable fit in my ears.

Awesome headphones!!! Sound is amazing and they're very comfortable and the battery life is awesome!!!

My first impression of these headphones were "OMG!". They are super comfortable and fit nicely around the ears. The swivel feature makes it great as it adjusts to your head shape. The sound quality gave me goosebumps. The sound is just absolutely amazing. The battery life is also amazing. It lasts a whole day on a charge and recharge is fast. It can work with a cable as well, which doesn't use the battery, which is also great. Highly recommend for someone who wants to spend a little extra on such an amazing product.

Highly recommended! Sound and Build quality very high. flexible as well. long battery life and distamce about 5 meters

Excellent buy good build quality better sound than most headphones out there spectacular with Dolby atmos very comfortable aswell only complaint is slightly treble heavy other than that no complaints!!

Absolutely amazing sounds and they sit so comfortably. Worth every cent

Great earphones. Clear sound and good battery life and sits comfortably on your ears for extended periods of use. There is some noise leak at high volumes but that should not really be a problem unless you like listening to music that is REALLY loud.

Also comes with a cable for wired listening which is a plus.

The quality and overall build is very good for the price.
I would give it a 9/10.

I love this beasts. They provide quality sound and the battery lasts longer than the estimated 20 hours.

Worth the wait and every cent, after the courier lost our package we finally got the delivery today and have to say WOW. Amazing sound, bass, clarity and functionality. 10 out of 10. Enrique Iglesias never sound so good.

Absolutely love these headphones!!!!!! AMAZING. I also suggest this colour.


Great sound, easy to setup but poor bluetooth range.

I bought these headphones to use at work to cancel out surrounding noise, and it works perfectly! This is exactly what I was looking for. Bluetooth works perfectly and I love to long battery life. Today is only my 3rd day using it, but I love it! Very good quality.

Awesome headset, really great quality for the price and super comfortable as I use it at work. Its my first wireless headset and it has not let me down!

Excellent sound, great base and range of audio
Clear individual sound differences can be easily heard in music and movies
Battery lasts ages
Connects to multiple devices at one
Love it!
Upgrade from E50BT and better price

Great product for a good price. Very good, clear and crisp sound. Battery holds up to the specified time. I'm impressed.

These JBL headphones offers the ultimate comfort with an wide range of adjustability for al sizes. The battery life is insane and charging is quick and easy. If the battery-life doesn't suit your needs there is a wired option that does not require any power. It is definitely a contender for much more expensive headphones. Over all these are a great deal, for the price and all it's capabilities.
