When it comes to the latest in gaming accessories…well ladies and gents, here comes a new challenger! Audio brand JBL is expanding its range to include headsets and a speaker designed exclusively for gamers. Unveiled at CES 2020, the JBL Quantum Range is said to deliver immersive audio quality and pinpoint accuracy for a true competitive advantage. With seven headsets available, covering both wired and wireless and prices ranging from affordable to premium, there’s bound to be a headset to suit every gamer.
All headsets in the JBL Quantum range have multi-platform capabilities for seamless connection across PC, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, mobile and VR.
Of the new range, the mid-to-higher priced headsets feature surround-sound technology powered by JBL’s PC software. The surround sound is said to broadcast a wider, realistic, spatial soundstage. The flagship headset – the JBL Quantum ONE – features something called QuantumSphere 360 sound technology. This uses proprietary algorithms and integrated head tracking sensors so competitive players can hear enemies and movements around them.
All headsets incorporate flip-up or detachable boom microphones with echo cancelling technology for focusing on voice rather than background noises. The ear cushions are made using leather-wrapped memory foam while the higher-priced models have premium leather-wrapped memory foam ear cushions. JBL ensures no matter the model, each of the headsets offers long-lasting quality and comfort for marathon sessions.
JBL also unveiled the Quantum DUO speaker, a plug-and-play speaker compatible with PCs and consoles that adds Dolby Digital and customisable lighting to a desk, bedroom or living room setup.
The JBL Quantum Range will be available for purchase from April 2020. There’s currently no word on Australian pricing. In the U.S. JBL Quantum headsets will be priced from $39.99 – $299.99 and the JBL Quantum DUO will be available for $149.95.
