JBL’s new audio gear Nicole Batac May 7, 2019 Features JBL recently launched a complete arsenal of goodies for different types of users and we share a few of our favorites with you. JBL Live 650BTNC P10,999 Built to be your daily companion, the JBL Live 650BTNC comes with Google Assistant support. All you need to do is tap on the right earcup. If you need to focus more and just want to tune out your surroundings, this pair of headphones comes with noise-cancellation capabilities. It can also last as long as you need it to with a promised 30-hour battery life. Its speed-charging capability gives you two hours of playtime from a 15-minute charge. You can tweak sound settings via the My JBL Headphones app, which is available on both Android and iOS. JBL Tune 500 P1,999 If you prefer a wired pair of headphones, the JBL Tune 500 comes with tangle-free ones and a lightweight design, so moving around still wouldn’t be an issue. You also still get access to Google Assistant via the one-button remote and microphone. JBL Endurance Peak P6,999 For active users, the JBL Endurance Peak is designed for your next adventure. With an IPX7 waterproof rating, it isn’t afraid to get a bit wet. With TwistLock and FlexSoft, the Endurance Peak will stay in your ears even as you move around. It comes with a rugged smart charging case that promises 24 hours of total backup charge. If you need a quick top-up, it promises to give you one hour of music playback from a 10-minute quick charge. JBL Under Armour Sports Wireless Train P11,499 If you’re okay with a bit more heft while you work out, there’s one new pair from the brand’s collaboration with Under Armour. The JBL Under Armour Sports Wireless Train comes with JBL Charge Sound to further intensify your workout. Under Armour’s Fabric Technology allows the earphones to maintain its comfortable form, while UA SuperVent on its outer ear cushions allow for true breathability. It’s fast-drying and hand washable, so you don’t have to worry about your sweat clinging to it. You can get around 16 hours of use on one charge and a five-minute charge can result in one-hour of audio playback. Like other JBL headphones and earphones, this pair supports TalkThru technology, so you don’t have to take them out if you want to talk to someone else. JBL Jr. Pop P1,999 Now if you want to give your little ones a speaker they can use, there’s the rugged and waterproof JBL Jr. Pop. It comes in vibrant colors that your child can decorate with stickers to personalize it further. It comes with a built-in multicolor light mode and it can play music for five hours. JBL Link View P17,999 JBL’s smart home display makes its way here. The JBL Link View is a Google Assistant voice-activated speaker that comes with an 8-inch high definition touchscreen display. You can make video calls thanks to its 5-megapixel front camera. If you’re worried about letting this device into your home with its camera and microphone, JBL added a PrivacySwitch feature, which disables the use of the camera and microphone.
