JBL Quantum launches in Australia
JBL Australia/New Zealand, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HARMAN International & Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. is pleased to announce the launch of the JBL Quantum range of gaming headsets and PC speakers in Australia. As a legacy audio brand JBL knows great sound and they are intent on making their mark in the gaming industry.
Fuelled by years of research, the combination of precisely engineered headsets with custom, cutting-edge software puts gamers in the centre of the action. From the thrill of tracking enemies in FPS games to engaging in epic MOBA battles, the JBL Quantum Headset Range contains seven different headsets, all designed to amplify victories with the ultimate sound experience.
Meanwhile the JBL Quantum DUO (RRP $249.95) gaming speakers bring every game to life, filling the room with sound and lighting effects.
The JBL Quantum headset range includes options for both casual and competitive gamers, from wired to wireless, and entry to professional level. All headsets are fully compatible with any gaming system, including PC, Mac, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, mobile and VR.
“Sound quality is key to the competitive edge of a gamer and nobody does sound better than JBL. We have spent years developing the Quantum range of gaming headsets and speakers with the input of gamers themselves. It has taken time, but when Sound is Survival in gaming, we wanted to ensure we were giving gamers the best that JBL sound has to offer” says Marcus Fry, Country Manager for Harman in ANZ.
Competitive Partnerships with SypherPK, TeePee & Sinatraa
Continuing in the evolution of the gaming space, following the announcement of the partnership with ‘Nadeshot” and the crew from 100 Thieves, the audio brand continues to grow its presence in the space with the addition of three professional esports streamers to its roster: Ali Hassan aka “SypherPK”, Tyler Polchow aka “Teepee” and Jay Won aka “Sinatraa”.
By encompassing the competitive advantage provided by the precisely engineered JBL Quantum gaming headsets, SypherPK, TeePee, and Sinatraa have partnered with the brand to use its cutting-edge software for future streams and competitions.
