The core philosophy behind JBL's long history of audio innovation is based on meticulous attention to every detail of system design. If the wire needed for a new voice coil isn't available, JBL develops it. If a tool or technology doesn't exist, JBL invents it. This uncompromising commitment to the goal drives the development of every new product and technology that bears the JBL logo.
Designing our products from the ground up enables our engineers to address current day audio problems though a 67-year evolution of audio knowledge, innovative thinking and proprietary tools. This holistic approach ensures that each component is designed to work together as a system, right down to the placement of the handles.Breaking free of the conventional, we develop technologies like our patented Differential Drive woofers that reduce driver weight and heat while greatly enhancing all critical performance parameters - frequency response, power output and distortion. And our Image Control Waveguide that delivers a wide coverage pattern with consistent frequency response that liberates our studio monitors from the room while delivering extraordinary detail, nuance, and a rock stable sound stage that ensures mixing accuracy regardless of the workspace.
But in order for great technology to really matter, it needs to go the distance. At JBL, our 100 hour torture test exposes all of our designs to extremes of use to give you the assurance that the sound you've built your music with can be relied on with unrivaled confidence.
Live Sound DJ Keeps Your Music Moving
JBL engineers have extensive experience working with concert tours on the world stage, going back to the very beginning of concert sound reinforcement. This experience is driven by our passion for audio excellence and has produced rugged, reliable, high performance products that feature ground up innovations, like the PRX715 Series which uses our patented Differential Drive technology maximizing speaker and amplifier performance for higher power and lower distortion in a smaller, lighter package.
JBL engineers spend significant time in the trenches experiencing the real world that you work in, sharing your passion for great sound, so that our products consistently blend superb audio performance with rugged reliability. From small, one person systems for an intimate coffee shop, to portable, scalable systems that can be managed by working bands, to mind blowing DJ rigs that will let you own the dance floor, JBL products will support and inspire your pursuit of musical excellence.
The overriding theme in the development of all high performance studio monitors is to deliver ever more accurate sound. The key to creating an environment that inspires your best performances, and achieving successful mixes that translate everywhere you take them, is to truly hear what is happening in your studio. Every nuance, all the dynamics, every detail must be presented with clarity, dimension and rock stable imaging. It's critical because all your decisions are affected by what you hear.
This is what inspired our engineers when developing breakthrough technology like our Image Control Waveguide. Featured in our flagship M2 Master Reference Monitors, it enables neutral frequency response, not just on axis, but off axis in the vertical and horizontal planes.
While other manufacturers use a single on-axis frequency response measurement taken at one point in space, JBL measures monitor systems over a sphere that encompasses all power radiated into the listening room - in every direction. This data reflects 1296 times the information of a single on-axis response curve. Seventy-two measurements of the direct sound field, the reflected sound field, and the reverberant field, the entire sound field heard by the listener, is correlated to optimize response at the listening position.
Now that same technology is deployed in the 3 Series Studio Monitors that deliver the same stunning accuracy in a package designed specifically for personal studios and today's modern work spaces. JBL is committed to making this technology available to everyone striving to achieve their best.
Portable PA loudspeakers are used in applications including sound reinforcement and stage monitoring for musicians and DJs, amplification of electronic musical instruments and A/V. JBL offers portable PA products that cover the spectrum of price and performance. In clubs, rehearsal halls, festivals, events, houses of worship and ballrooms JBL portable PA speakers deliver unmatched performance and value.

One of JBL's taglines is "Hear the truth," and with a history that goes back almost 70 years, they've got tons of experience helping musicians and audiences do just that. Specializing in speakers of all kinds, JBL has what it takes to make sure that your music is heard just the way you intend it to be, on the stage as well as in the studio. There are three main categories of JBL products to browse: live sound, recording and installed. Between those specific applications, it's a cinch to find the best speakers for your individual needs.
To gear up a venue for live performances, the go-to option will be a set of PA or installed speakers. These can be powered, meaning they have their own amplification and can be connected directly to an audio source, or unpowered, which is the type to get if you're using a standalone power amp. Some JBL series, like the EON line, have both options available, so take care to choose the right type for your setup. JBL also makes speakers for personal use, like the Micro Wireless Ultra-Portable BT Multimedia Speaker. Small enough to grab 'n' go and easy to connect to any Bluetooth device, it's a great travel partner for an audiophile.
On top of all that JBL has to offer for enjoying music, they've also got a nice set of choices for creating it in the first place. Studio monitors such as the LSR305 and LSR308 are essential gear for any recording setup, designed to give you the most accurate possible sound so that you can fine-tune your mix from the ground up. For a complete soundstage, don't forget to add in a studio subwoofer like the LSR310 S as well. It'll boost those low frequencies to make sure you never miss a single nuance in your tracks.
If you're looking for speakers, you're in the right place. This is JBL's "home turf," and that really shows in the build and sound quality they deliver. You'll even find some accessories here like covers, cases and transporters, so you've got access to everything you need to get the notes flowing in your venue, mobile stage setup or studio.
