JBL has been a celebrated brand in the world of audio technology. With its strong and innovative product lineup designed for enthusiasts and audiophiles, the company has easily made its way as one of the top brands in the world today. Now, the company wants to take things further as it improves its most popular Bluetooth audio products and as such debuts a new lineup designed for the great outdoors.
Successor to the JBL Charge 2+, the Charge 3 comes with an IPX7 rating to give it a waterproof build. Furthermore, it features a new design that's complete with a fabric grille and rubberized housing, making it more suitable for outdoor use. It's still built with strong stereo speakers, as well as a bass radiator. Furthermore, it is capable of delivering 15 hours of playback, all thanks to its 6,000mAh battery. It can even be used as a power bank to recharge devices via USB.
The JBL Clip 3, on the other hand, is a step up from the company's Clip+ that came out last year. Similar to the Charge 3, the Clip 3 features an IPX7 waterproofing with a fabric and rubber housing to withstand the hazards of the elements. It can be paired wirelessly with other speakers by JBL to amplify the sound further, and it can even be paired with multiple audio sources simultaneously.
Meanwhile, the Everest Elite 100 is the company's fully wireless earphone, and it is also tagged as the "industry's first in-ear wireless headphones with NXTGen noise canceling capabilities." It can connect via Bluetooth, and it allows users to control the amount of outside noise the Elite 100 lets in through a downloadable app.
Lastly, it seems like HTC isn't the only one that partnered with Under Armour as JBL jumps in the fitness bandwagon as it announces UA Headphones Wireless and UA Headphoned Wireless Heart Rate. Both headphones are IPX5 rated and feature a Twistlock design to keep them from falling out from the user's ears. The standard model delivers eight hours of audio playback, while the hear-rate monitoring variant does its job from the ears.
