The JBL E55BT Quincy Edition Wireless Over-Ear Headphones is a unique, interesting approach towards wireless headphones. While most people do want wireless earbuds, this model is a nice way to obtain high-quality sound with over-ear headphones. They sound well and you do get better multitasking, but portability is ok and overall this is a wonderful unit to have!

Not all of us want Bluetooth in-ear headphones. They can be loud at times and they may not deliver the value and result you want. That’s why it can be a very good idea to give these a shot. They look great, sound great and overall you receive a very interesting and outstanding value for your money. You don’t really need something better than the JBL E55BT Quincy Edition Wireless Over-Ear Headphones, so they can be right up your alley!

Design and build quality

JBL put a lot of focus on design and you can see that right off the bat. The overall quality is very impressive and the attention to detail is great for sure. The premium design is combined with a soft leather headband and form-fitting ear cushions. Basically, the audio experience is insanely good and you do receive a very nice, crisp experience all the time.

Since you have these over your head, results can be more than impressive. It really shines to hear this kind of unit and yes, the outcome is quite good all the time. the headphones have a tangle-free fabric cord if you want to use one. Adding in a cord is actually very good because some people won’t need to use these wirelessly. So it does make a lot of sense to obtain a very good value from something like this. It’s definitely worth your time and money here, so give it a shot and you will enjoy the results.

Sound quality

While using the JBL E55BT Quincy Edition we noticed that there was no audio bleeding. Every sound outputted here is clear and you do have some good noise cancellation. The unit also has around 20 hours of battery life too, which is really nice. They did a very good job at bringing in quality audio, but there are some mishaps at times. The output can be a bit different than what you expect at times. It’s not a dealbreaker, but it’s an issue that some people do have!

What is in the box?

The JBL E55BT Quincy Edition Wireless Over-Ear Headphones have a box with a tangle-free fabric chord, a soft carrying pouch, and a charging cable. You don’t really need more than this, as you get just about all the features that you may require from something like this. It’s certainly worth the time and money, so check it out and you will not regret it.
