JBL's New Headphone Lineup

While JBL had always been known for their superior audio products, they had never really entered the headphone market. Back in May, JBL announced it's entrance entrance into the crowded headphone market by creating a Tim McGraw Headphone line. Not surprisingly, this line hasn't flown off the shelves due to lack and marketing and general buzz. You know it's bad when I couldn't even find a picture of Tim McGraw wearing his own headphones! Hopefully, JBL has ditched the celeb endorsement shtick for more quality products.

Last week, they unveiled their new J Series line of headphones, which consist of a new over-ear J88i and in-ear J33i Headphone. The entire line consists of 8 separate models, but 6 of them are just variants of the main 2 designs.

The J88i uses a DJ pivot system which lets you rotate the leather ear cups 180 degrees. They are available in 2 color schemes - black/silver & while/silver/copper. The J33i's have a new technology that JBL calls an angled strain relief buckle. It is basically a brace that is built to avoid wire-wearing stress on the cord.

In-Ear J33i
Available: December
Price: $80

Over-Ear J88i
Available: December
Price: $150
