The company’s flagship device, the JBL Tour Pro 2, will get the world’s first “true smart case” with a built-in touchscreen that lets you control music, answer calls, and receive notifications without the need for a smartphone. In addition to the 1.45-inch screen, the Tour Pro 2 will feature active noise cancellation, IPX5 splash protection, three array microphones per earcup, and Bluetooth 5.3 LE support. The manufacturer claims that the novelty will be able to work up to 8 hours on a single charge with activated noise reduction, and the battery in the case will last three full charges of the headphones. The expected price of the JBL Tour Pro 2 is $250.

Also, the company introduced the JBL Tune Buds mid-budget headphones. The novelty will receive two directional microphones on each earpiece, active noise cancellation mode, as well as protection against dust and splashes IP54. It is noteworthy that the novelty will work on a single charge longer than the flagship – up to 10 hours with activated noise reduction. The Tune Buds case battery will be able to charge the earbuds from 0% to 100% three times. The declared price of new items is $100.

Another new mid-budget model from the company is the JBL Tune Beam. From Tune Buds, the novelty will be distinguished by the teardrop shape characteristic of Apple headphones. The device will also receive support for active noise reduction, as well as a capacious battery that allows the headphones to work for up to 10 hours with activated noise reduction. Tune Beam will cost $100.

In addition to the Tune Buds and Tune Beam, JBL announced the JBL Tune Flex, an open-back earphone (like the Apple EarPods in shape) with noise-canceling support and IPX4 splash protection. Unlike the JBL Tune Buds and Tune Beam, the new product does not support the Bluetooth 5.3 standard and is limited to Bluetooth 5.2. Battery life is also shorter, up to 6 hours with noise cancellation on. The price of the new item is $100.

JBL will also launch the JBL Endurance Peak 3 sports headphones. The “PowerHook” design of the headphones ensures a secure fit in the ears. The headphones will receive full IP68 protection against water and dust, as well as a high-capacity battery that provides up to 10 hours of battery life. The battery case is enough for four full charges of the headphones. The price of Endurance Peak 3 is $100.

The company has not bypassed budget solutions when introducing the JBL Vibe line. The Vibe Buds, Vibe Beam, and Vibe Flex will differ primarily in form, offering users the same battery life (up to 8 hours), speaker quality, and IP54 dust and water resistance. The declared price of new products is 50-70 dollars.
