Design & Build Quality

JBL Quantum 50 earphones will be available in 3 different colors black, white and purple.

Mate color coating has been used on this earphone.

With this, you will get a gold plated 3.5mm audio jack in it which is neither straight nor in L-shape but it has been rotated in 40 or 45 degree.

Both of its earbuds are branded JBL on the top side and in this you get to see JBL patent design which is not only better in appearance but also gives you a lot of comfort.

However, gamers who use very small earphones may find it a bit bulky.

However I did not have any problem in using them as I have used all types of earphones and headphones.

Along with earphones, you are also given extra ear tips which are in different sizes which you can use according to your size.

These ear tips are silicone ear tips whose quality is quite good.

However, if you have any problem with these ear tips then you can buy memory foam ear tips from the market but I did not have any problem with them.

Overall the build quality of the earphones is quite good and is usable for a long time.


In this earphones, you get to see braided cable, which is also quite durable.

I personally liked its quality quite well.

Its best feature I felt that you can adjust the length of its cable as per your convenience.

In this earphone, you have been given a cable manager, which you will find near its controller.

With this help you can manage extra cable.

This is also a extra feature that you do not find in most earphones.

In terms of cable, JBL has done a great job in which it is neither compromised by the quality nor by its length.

In JBL Quantum 50 Gaming earphones you have been given in-line controllers which are made of plastic.

I also liked its quality a lot.

This gives you a button to answer/reject the call.

Apart from this, it has a volume slider so that you can increase or decrease the volume of earphones.

You have also been given a button to mute the microphone in it, which is an extra feature that you rarely see in other earphones in this budget.

If you do not need a mic, you can mute the mic with the help of this button.

Well, for ordinary gamers who do not do as much gaming, this feature may not be that important, but for hardcore gamers who play games with their teammates, this feature will be quite helpful.

Because of this, they will no longer have to mute the mic from their device, they will be able to mute the mic directly with this button.

So these were some controls of JBL Quantum 50 gaming earphones which will help you in gaming.

Twist-Lock Technology

In JBL Quantum 50 gaming earphones you get twist-lock technology which is quite good in terms of comfort.

These features are going to be much better for gamers who have difficulty using earphones.

If the earphones do not fit well in your ears too, then JBL’s Quantum 50 gaming earphones will prove to be of great help.

While such earphones are also easily available in the market with ear lock tips, but twist-lock technology also makes earphones easily fit.

I did not feel any discomfort in my ears about these earphones.

JBL Quantum 50 gaming earphones are quite good in comfort.

Nowadays you are also getting detachable mic in gaming earphones which makes gaming even better but in JBL Quantum 50 gaming earphones you get much better performance without detachable mic.

In this earphone, you are not given a mic in the in-line controllers like other earphones, but the microphone is provided in the cable on the left side which stays close to your mouth and can capture your voice better.

Its quality is much better.

This will make your teammates hear your voice very clearly.
