Harman Looks To JBL Quantum Gaming Headphones To Deliver Growth
Two years ago Harman decided to move into the gaming market, already known for their JBL theatre speakers they started off by delivering a new range of speakers for the HyperX Esports Arena at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, what came next is a new JBL Quantum range of gaming headphones that are light and contain AI that deliver 360 degree sound that’s impressive.
I tried these headphones at CES 2020, and they are right up there with the best when it comes to responsive gaming headphones.
The range includes the JBL Quantum 100, JBL Quantum 200, JBL Quantum 300, JBL Quantum 400, JBL Quantum 600, JBL Quantum 800, and the JBL Quantum ONE. Gamers will be able to buy wired or wireless versions, but they will all be over-ear models, meaning that the earcups will sit around your ears instead of on them.
This will provide better noise isolation and also a better soundstage claims JBL executives.
Some models like the Quantum 800 and the Quantum ONE will also offer up active noise cancellation.
The entire line-up will also boast JBL’s Quantum SOUND Signature which is said to help players better pinpoint where their enemies are, where shots are coming from, and so on.
Ms. Grace Koh, VP and General Manager for Lifestyle Audio Division of Asia Pacific at Harman said “During the design process, we tested extensively with gamers around the world to develop the most advanced predictive algorithm for the JBL Quantum Range, making every game immersive and every gamer more competitive.”
The new JBL brand is just one additional product range for Harman Australia to add to their already successful portfolio said Marcus Fry General Manager of Harman Australia.
“Our core range is delivering exceptional growth and the combination of new JBL and Harman Kardon products will see us deliver new products for retailers and growth for Harman”.
