JBL® Introduces First Microphone and True Wireless Gaming Earbuds to Award-Winning JBL Quantum Range

The brand also unveils two new additions to its over-ear gaming headset lineup

 

CES 2022, LAS VEGAS – JANUARY 4, 2022 – New competitors can take the stage as JBL expands its award-winning gaming product portfolio with several new JBL Quantum devices. Today, JBL launches its first USB microphone, the JBL Quantum Stream. As its name suggests, the dual-condenser microphone is perfect for coordinating with teammates, bringing crystal-clear communication to the center of the action as a standalone solution. Plus, the reversible stand provides 360-degree movement, with additional options included for a variety of other mounting options. The JBL Quantum Stream is joined by the brand’s first true wireless gaming headset, the JBL Quantum TWS, as well as two new over-ear headsets: the JBL Quantum 810 and JBL Quantum 610.

 

Be heard loud and clear with the JBL Quantum Stream, thanks to the 2 x 14mm dual-capsule Electret condenser with 24bit and 96kHz sampling rate. Two selectable voice pickup patterns allow users to focus the microphone’s capture on just the speaker’s voice or capture everyone’s voice in the room if recording a podcast or on a group call. Opting for a covert mission? Tap the top button to mute, which will activate an RGB indicator light for ease of use when in the middle of a battle – or conference call. The setup couldn’t be easier, with the JBL Quantum Stream’s universal mounting solution and seamless voice monitoring control. Users can simply mount the stand to fit their gaming setup and control their voice volume directly on the microphone.

 

For gamers who prefer an in-ear, wire-free experience, the JBL Quantum TWS is here to deliver. Complete with the incredibly realistic JBL QuantumSURROUND™, listeners can experience the best spatial surround sound solution in the game, coupled with True Adaptive Noise Cancelling and Ambient Aware features to control outside noises and minimize distractions. The included USB-C dongle brings a low latency connection to players on a PC, Mac, PlayStation®, Nintendo Switch and supported mobile devices. The JBL Quantum TWS also supports two connections at the same time so players can connect to their preferred gaming device via USB-C dongle, plus a Bluetooth connection on a mobile device so they never miss a call. The lightweight design makes the JBL Quantum TWS ideal for long gaming sessions, and the IPX5 sweat resistance rating ensures durability when using on the go.

“JBL continues to create smart solutions for gamers of all levels,” said Ralph Santana, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at HARMAN. “As the first standalone microphone and true wireless headset in the JBL Quantum lineup, the JBL Quantum Stream and JBL Quantum TWS were created to meet the needs of gamers, streamers and podcasters, alongside our robust – and growing – range of over-ear gaming headsets.”

Also joining the JBL Quantum range in 2022 are the JBL Quantum 810 and JBL Quantum 610, a recipient of the “Best of Innovation Honoree” for the prestigious CES® 2022 Innovation Awards*. These models feature JBL QuantumSURROUND™ and DTS Headphone:X 2.0 for the ultimate audio immersion, along with a voice-focus flip-up microphone and a durable, lightweight construction for optimal comfort during long gaming sessions. All new JBL Quantum headsets and the JBL Quantum Stream microphone are compatible with the JBL QuantumENGINE™ PC software for full customization of audio and RGB lighting effects (select models only). The JBL Quantum TWS is also compatible with the JBL Headphones app for customization while on the go.

 

All new additions to the JBL Quantum lineup will be available starting Spring 2022 on JBL.com and from select retailers.
