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!
