Build Quality is not the best.

These headphones are NOT for people who use them regularly. Its been 6 months since i got them, the sound quality is great but the padding around the ear will come off within the first 3 months of purchase. when u spend around 4000 on them u don't want such quality issues. They are for people who can maintain them like trophies or something probably.
When u spend 4k its better to look for something more better quality. The worst part is the whole padding around the ear is stuck with glue so n...

The timing couldn't have been perfect.

I was looking for a headphone every now and then but wasn't sure which one I should go for. A friend (neya) suggested these headphones and they seemed really well quality built. The price on flipkart was amazing at the time I ordered(not saying it is not right now ) and the super cool flipkart serviced delivered it promptly to my door. The packaging was well done. I was extremely impressed. It was a big package. Kudos to flipkart for that.

Now about the headphones - Extremely well built, Ex...

Great Sound for the price but Inferior Build Quality!!!!

I've been using this Headphones for last 7 months as compared to the price tag, the sound quality is great, Bass is quite good and frequency reproduction is excellent. It gives a really good listening experience.
But build quality is extremely inferior.
I'm a very cautious user, but still the inner part of the ear pads/sponge which looks like leather but is some synthetic material which is stuck to the outer portion and started coming off in 3 months revealing the inner foam. The product was ...

Don't buy into the hype

This product is a marketing fail. Why? Because it's marketed as a Bass-heavy headphone and it is anything but that. The bass is there, but it lacks the punch. Heck, even an ordinary iBall or Zebronics would beat it. You need to press the cushions hard to feel the punch. But you can't keep doing that always and that sucks. Comfort is really excellent and the cushions are extremely good. The drivers used themselves are really good and the clarity is definitely good. But it's no studio monitor e...

Mind blowing awesomeness

Was looking for a long time for a headphone with strong bass when a friend suggested the J55. While searching for it I came across this awesome piece of brilliance and was being offered here at a price to kill for. I wasted no time in ordering it and as usual Flipkart's amazing service made sure I got it within a day.
This is one of the best decisions I have ever made. These headphones deliver everything JBL promises. The large ear cup size ensures that my big ears are completely enclosed cut...

JBL J88 is good , no doubt.
My review is for the piece which i got on 1st July 2014.

I am not an avid or long hour listener but very particular about sound quality so i purchased this expensive headphone.

For the past 1 month i have not used these headphones and were carefully kept in its pouch.
Today when i opened its box to use i saw that FOAM inside its Circumaural headphones was visible.
Its black covering is opening up. I am devastated :(
Now that Flipkart will not take this 2 month ...

Best headphones under 3000 (50 mm drivers/folding mechanism/detachable cable)

These headphones are really value for money. I got it for Rs. 2000. I don't know how flipkart/WS retail is able it sell it for less than 3000, as other sites are offering it for 4500-5000. The J88 doesn't have a microphone. Don't get fooled by the image. The J88i/J55i are the ones with microphones and volume control.

Pros:
Really clear sound, Good bass, comfortable, detachable cable(2.5 mm - 3.5 mm), soft ear cushions, folding mechanism, lightweight as compared to their size, Tangle free cab...
