Harman International, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, has today announced the launch of the new wearable sound device, known as JBL Soundgear. The device is priced at Rs 14,999 and it is available at Harman e-commerce platform and on various online and retails channels across India.
The JBL Soundgear is basically a wireless speaker that you wear around your neck. The device can be connected to smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth. Users can enjoy mobile virtual reality headsets, such as the Samsung Gear VR, using the wearable sound device to create a powerful audio experience with JBL Signature Sound. Additionally, the wearable sound device packs up to 6-hours of playtime.
Furthermore, there is a dual-microphone conferencing system with echo and noise cancelling technology to ensure sound clarity for clear conversations. The echo cancelling mic also allows users to take phone calls without the worry of sound quality or interruption. The rubber anti-slip treatment ensures the device stays put when moving around, and soft-touch fabrics provide long-lasting comfort.
“JBL Soundgear gives users the freedom to experience audio in a completely new way. No matter the activity, users can create their own personal sound zone without the closed-off feeling of a headphone. Whether doing house or office work, engaging in virtual reality or watching a movie from a tablet, JBL Soundgear empowers users to create their very own listening environment while staying connected to their surroundings.” said Sumit Chauhan, Vice President – Lifestyle Audio, HARMAN India.
