JBL and Quincy Jones Introduce E55BT Quincy Edition Wireless Headphones

New over-ear wireless headphone features voice prompts and audio tuned by the man himself


The E55BT Quincy Edition delivers Quincy’s personalised sound and features customised EQ tuning and voice prompts from Quincy Jones himself. The wireless headphone packs up to 20-hours of battery life. Additionally, the Bluetooth feature allows users to switch between devices for audio calls and music. For higher resolution audio quality up to 96 kHz/24 bit, users can also listen in wired mode with the detachable cable included.


The aesthetic of the special edition headphone was a collaborative effort by Quincy and designer Kidada Jones, his daughter. The designer outfitted the headphones with metallic finishes and a leather headband.


Other features include 50mm drivers, detachable cable with one-button universal remote with microphone and the sound controls on ear-cup. Oh and you also get a Quincy Jones Limited Edition Pouch, neat.

The headphones will be available for purchase from May 2017 at JBL.com for $199.95 and will be available in space grey and dusty rose (which sounds a bit bit like a country singer, but never mind).

    It’s a good audio headset, but the quality of the materials is not great. We can not have everything for this price ^^
    I managed to get it for cheap for Christmas!
