By / 3 weeks ago / News / No Comments

JBL celebrates its 75th Anniversary as the world’s leading brand in the audio industry. For 75 years, JBL has contributed to epic moments in musical pop culture and audio innovation and has been the driving force behind revolutionary recordings and iconic events.

With an unparalleled devotion to constant innovation in technology, design, and the user experience, JBL continues to spearhead the way in quality sound, delivering cutting-edge offerings and solutions. From sound systems in movie theatres, sports stadiums, and music venues to portable Bluetooth speakers, headphones, and in-car audio, JBL not only meets listeners’ preferences but anticipates them as well. Driving the innovation further, JBL is also set to widen its audio specialisation portfolio of its True Wireless Series and headphones, catering to the diverse landscape of listeners.

“For 75 years, JBL has been at the forefront of the sound industry and will carry on to push audio boundaries through innovative, connected and personalised sound technology,” said Mitchell Wong,  Business Development Manager of JBL Malaysia. “Since the relaunch of JBL in Malaysia early this year, we have received a warm response from listeners in Malaysia, and we’re looking forward to strengthening our position as the go-to brand for an authentic audio experience,” he added. 

In line with its 75th Anniversary, JBL brings two of its latest additions under the Tour Series, JBL Tour ONE — smart over-ear noise-cancelling headphones, and JBL Tour Pro+ TWS — smart true wireless in-ear headphones, to the Malaysian shores. A breakthrough offering, the Tour Series range received this year’s CES® Innovation Awards “Best Innovation” honours. Apart from having Adaptive Noise Cancellation, the newest offerings by JBL are fitted with JBL Pro Sound, Adaptive Ambient and TalkThru technology, designed for business professionals who seek advanced technology, smart features and sleek design.

“With the latest additions to the wide variety of JBL products, we look at providing the best user experience to Malaysians, whether it’s through music, watching music, gaming or enjoying a call with friends and family,” said Henry Yap, Managing Director of Global Best United — JBL’s authorised sole distributor in Malaysia.


The JBL Tour ONE offers True Adaptive Noise Cancellation technology, which instantly monitors environmental sound and adapts to the perfect level of noise cancellation for the user’s environment, eliminating distractions in real-time. SilentNow also gives users the ability to simply touch the dedicated button to activate noise cancellation mode without activating Bluetooth, for complete isolation from outside noise.

In addition to JBL Pro Sound, the JBL Tour ONE features HARMAN’s new Smart Audio Mode that allows users to optimise the Bluetooth connection for “normal listening”, increase fidelity in “music mode” or watch videos with the low latency “video mode”. With up to 50 hours of total playback time and 4-mic technology, the JBL Tour ONE can power a full week of activity on a single charge.
