JBL Launches New Products Celebrating 75 Years
After three-quarters of a century, JBL remains synonymous with epic sound. Throughout its remarkable history, JBL has remained true to the vision of audio excellence and innovation established by its founder James B. Lansing.
Marking the occasion across 2022, JBL has released many new products across its ranges, from lifestyle audio products through to its flagship Summit hi-fi and Synthesis home cinema ranges.
From the movie theatre to the home theatre, from Hi-Fi to headphones, from portable speakers to in-car audio, JBL has charted its own path and built a legacy of innovation.
The JBL FLIP portable Bluetooth speaker, now in its 6th generation, revolutionised sound on the go. Throw it in your suitcase when you go away, or plant it firmly beside your pool for Aussie summers (remember those?); the FLIP 6 is small enough to go anywhere but packs a mighty punch. The IP67 rating means it's resistant to dust and water, and the lithium battery means you'll enjoy up to 12 hours of playtime.
Dave Rogers, President, HARMAN Lifestyle Division, told StereoNET:
The new JBL Flip 6 best features from its predecessor, such as PartyBoost and the innovative racetrack driver, plus the Flip 6 now has a separate tweeter and dual passive radiators to give new depth and power to your music.
FLIP 6 is available now in eight different colours for $129.95.
The True Wireless earphone category has exploded in popularity over the past five years. JBL joins the party with its LIVE PRO 2 TWS. Its 'stick' design features 11mm dynamic drivers that promise to deliver JBL's Signature Sound.
Its True Adaptive Noise Cancelling with smart ambient enables users to adjust the amount of background noise they want to let in. This ensures you're aware of your surroundings or having conversations without having to remove the earbuds.
Its IPX5 waterproof and splashproof rating makes long runs in the elements worry-free, while the embedded six microphones isolate noise and wind to deliver superior call quality. With up to 40 hours of playback time, listeners can enjoy long stints at the gym, outdoors, on conference calls or settling in for their favourite podcast.
Available now in a choice of four colours, JBL LIVE Pro 2 TWS sells for $99.95.
Whether you're focused on every footstep or have your sights set way into the distance on Sniper Elite, gamers deserve good sound too. JBL has delivered its latest over-ear Wireless Bluetooth gaming headset in the Quantum 810 Wireless.
