Included in JBL’s new line-up being released between March and May are Bar 5.0 MultiBeam soundbar, Charge 5 bluetooth speaker, and TUNE, Reflect, LIVE and Tour wireless earbuds and on/over-ear headphones.

In a series of press releases, JBL recently announced a bunch of new speakers, headphones and earbuds to be released within the next few months.


Soundbar

JBL launched their Bar 9.1 at $900 last year. Featuring Dolby Atmos, the soundbar split into three sections giving you two detachable wireless speakers, with the main soundbar firing music upwards, bouncing sound off the ceiling.

At $399.95, this year’s JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam uses virtualization to offer a similar experience at a much cheaper price. While Bar 5.0 doesn’t offer the detachable wireless speakers or sub, the all-in-one soundbar is JBL’s first to deliver Virtual Dolby Atmos using five drivers (three forward-facing and two side-facing), 4 passive radiators and MultiBeam technology. Wireless connectivity is offered via Bluetooth, Alexa, Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast.

The soundbar is due to launch this Spring.
