Bring the cinematic thrill home with JBL’s most advanced soundbar yet

CES 2023 Las Vegas – January 4, 2023 – Immerse yourself in quality sound with JBL’s latest addition to the Bar Series, the JBL Bar 1300. The feature-packed soundbar completes the updated JBL Bar Series, bringing the elevated audio experience of a movie theatre to your living room with Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X 3D surround sound amplified by detachable wireless surround speakers.


A true home cinema experience without wires, the 15 channel JBL Bar 1300 uses six up-firing drivers and HARMAN’s unique MultiBeam™ technology to create an immersive audio experience leveraging its sphere of Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X 3D surround sound. With its detachable wireless surround speakers and 10’’ wireless subwoofer, film buffs will experience next level audio whether watching movies, playing games or listening to music like never before.


Simply place the two detachable battery-powered surround speakers anywhere in the room and get swept away with crystal clear audio, free from wires or extra power connections. You can also pair one of the detachable wireless speakers to any Bluetooth device to use as a standalone speaker, or pair them together for a powerful stereo sound.


“Our JBL soundbars take in-home theatre sound to the next level and the JBL Bar 1300 truly stands out,” said Dave Rogers, President, HARMAN Lifestyle Division. “We’ve packed a record number of features, drivers and jaw-dropping acoustic performance into one versatile, easy-to-use soundbar.”


Building on the current JBL Bar Series, the JBL Bar 1300 features HARMAN’s PureVoice. This new technology uses HARMAN’s unique algorithm to optimise voice clarity even when loud sound effects take over so movie buffs can follow even the most complex plot.

Entertainment enthusiasts can also easily connect the soundbar to online music services via Wi-Fi with compatible speakers, and browse integrated music platforms to find new songs and artists through the new JBL One app. With the new app’s fully customisable EQ settings, users can personalise their listening experience.
