Showcase an outstanding wireless smart speaker that would bring world-class innovation right into the home of the consumers.
This is the objective set by the Harman International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., as it eyes a positive welcome in the local market with their newly launched innovative speaker to date: The JBL Link series.
Harman Lifestyle Audio Philippine Country Head Larry Secreto expressed enthusiasm to present the company’s newest product line the JBL Link series. According to him, the new product is remarkably different from the previous ones as the latest addition brings the first voice-activated speakers, showcasing JBL’s Signature Sound with the Google Assistant.
The Link series, a hands-free set of speakers activated by using voice commands, are available in four models namely the LINK 10, LINK 20, LINK 300, and LINK 500.
Secreto proudly said the JBL LINK enables users to experience hassle-free listening due to its hands-free and voice-activated speaker series. Through the use of voice commands, powered by a built-in Google Assistant, listeners can now stream music, ask questions, manage everyday tasks, and easily control connected smart devices around their home.
By uttering the words “Ok, Google” or “Hey, Google,” the device can perform other tasks such as playing a favorite song, finding delicious recipes for dinner parties, and even checking traffic before leaving the house.
“We are thrilled to pair JBL’s incredible legacy of award-winning sound with our growing line-up of voice-controlled speakers,” Secreto said.
He also explained that JBL’s well-known quality sound and Google’s voice assistant technology were merged to deliver a powerful listening experience and a conversational voice assistant.
The LINK speakers also feature high-definition music streaming with Chromecast built-in, providing an elevated music experience, best-in-class sound quality, and top class entertainment from the most popular music and entertainment apps, all through a simple voice command.
Secreto added that the LINK 10 and LINK 20 speakers ensure almost nonstop listening continuity with an IPX7 waterproof rating, allowing users to play music for five and ten consecutive hours, respectively.
Meanwhile, for home users, the LINK series’ larger members, the LINK 300 and LINK 500, are a perfect fit. Powered by Google assistant, these speakers can be connected to a user’s smart appliances through the Google Home app. Both the LINK 300 and LINK 500, along with other JBL speakers, can all be connected through any home Wi-Fi network for a multiple speakers’ set up for a powerful, louder multi-room listening experience.
In a bid to boost its lineup, Secreto said the company also launched the all-new JBL Everest lineup composed of the Everest Elite 110 GA, Everest 310 GA, and Everest 710 GA.
He added that all three of the in-ear Everest Elite 110GA, on-ear Everest 310GA, and over-ear 710GA allow users to have easy and convenient control over the connected device’s notifications, music, phone calls, SMS text messages and other smartphone functions with the use of Google Assistant. The revamped Everest lineup also comes with a touch-sensitive ear cup and earbud, allowing one tap access for Google Assistant.
The Everest Elite 110GA, Everest 310GA, and Everest 710GA carry long hours of playtime with a stamina of 8 hours, 10 hours, and 25 hours respectively.
