JBL formalizes 8 new products, aimed at audiophiles of all backgrounds and ages.
Summer is over, but the weather is rather mild in these first days of September. To extend the summer season a bit, and to swing to the rhythm of the hits of the year 2021, JBL is launching two new speakers with the sound of JBL Original Pro and completely redesigned light shows. Powerful and easy to transport, the PartyBox 710 and 110 promise to withstand all kinds of bamboo thanks to the IPX4 certification. They are not afraid of splashing water or rain.
Under the hood, the JBL PartyBox 710 has two 2.5-inch low-distortion tweeters and two 8-inch high sensitivity speakers. For music lovers, who would like to do some guitar riffs with friends, the tool has an input for guitar and microphone.
The JBL PartyBox 110 offers almost 160 watts of sound power. It adopts many of the technical characteristics of the 710, including dynamic light shows synchronized to the beat of the music. The two speakers can be connected to other products of the same range, to be placed in several rooms or simply to provide greater sound coverage. They are both already available on the JBL website, at 749 euros for the PartyBox 710 and 379 euros for the 110.
A gaming headset for the start of the school year
JBL is also aimed at gamers with its new gaming headset, the JBL Quantum 350. Designed for demanding users, this new product in the range adopts the 2.4G lossless audio connection. With its 22-hour battery life and memory foam pads, it promises to win over time and during the most intense gaming sessions. The brand announces more stealthy footsteps and dizzying laser blasts from 40mm speakers powered by JBL QuantumSOUND Signature Sound. The immersion should also be total thanks to the QuantumSURROUND function.
For online gamers, the JBL Quantum 350 is Discord certified and is compatible with Skype and TeamSpeak. If it was designed for PC users, it also adapts to the latest generation Playstation consoles as well as the Nintendo Switch. Price side, you will have to pay 119 euros to get it, now since it is already available on the brand’s website.
