JBL J33i Premium In-Ear Headphones Review

The JBL J33i is a premium, noise-isolating, in-ear headphones. It has a 3-button remote with built-in microphone which allows control for phones or music players. It comes with 3 Comply foam tips (small, medium and large)  for custom fit as well as a nifty carrying case to place all of them in.

Technical Specs:

  • Type:  In-ear style
  • High-performance driver: 23/64" (9.2mm)
  • Frequency response:1 0Hz – 24kHz
  • Impedance:16O
  • Flat elastomer cable: 4' 3-3/16" (1.3M)
  • Plug: 1/8" (3.5mm) gold plated

The design and build of the JBL J33i is great. It looks nice and the 1.3m flat cable is easily accessible and doesn’t tangle. The jack is also gold-plated so it would last longer than most typical jacks that easily corrodes over time.

While I’m not an audiophile, the JBL J33i produces crisp and full bass. I however, could not appreciate the in-ear design, as with my past reviews on earphones because I can’t seem to get used to the fit of it on my ear, besides it keeps falling out. But, if you prefer in-ear ones then this is a good earphone. For what it is, I would’ve expected it to be priced lower but knowing the brand and the technology behind this, expect to pay premium.

The JBL J33i comes in black and white colors and cost around 4,000 pesos.
