The excitement of a flagship is just around the corner.
The flagship model of over-ear headphones from the prestigious audio brand JBL.TOUR ONE M2‘ was announced.
Speaking of JBL, the completely wireless earphones “TOUR PRO 2” released in March of this year were a big hit. The innovativeness of the case equipped with a screen has attracted attention, and the high level of perfection, including sound quality, has been praised, which is something new.
As if in sync with this upward trend, the “TOUR ONE M2” has a spirit that makes you want to call it “JBL’s answer to the modern audio scene.” The points to note are as follows, and it may be safe to think of it as a “headphone version of TOUR PRO 2.”
・Advanced personalization function that allows you to create a sound experience that suits you
・Achieve absolute sound quality with high-performance sound technology that supports high resolution
・Noise canceling function with real-time correction that creates high-quality silence
・Scheduled to support Bluetooth version 5.3 LE Audio
・Equipped with extensive functions that meet all needs from private to business
In fact, I was able to try out the “TOUR ONE M2” at the 2023 fall/winter new product preview “HARMAN ExPLORE TOKYO 2023” held by HARMAN International, which develops the JBL brand, and it was smooth and powerful. I had a good impression of the sound.
Naturally, I had some expectations as it’s a flagship, but this one surpassed them.I felt a very pleasant “extension” in which all bands, from low to high, seemed to be smoothly connected.
The release date of “TOUR ONE M2” is September 22, 2023 (Friday).
The standard price is the open price, and the JBL online store sales price is scheduled to be 39,600 yen (tax included).
At the same event, a pale pink color called “Sound Color” was also announced as a Japan-only color for “TOUR PRO 2”.
This is scheduled to be released in late October.
Apple Watch Series 9, which was announced on the same day, was also available in pink as a new color, but could the pink trend be here?
At the event, JBL’s diverse lineup including gaming headsets, Bluetooth-enabled turntables and speakers, etc., was on display, making it truly a one-of-a-kind event.
Anyway, JBL is riding the wave.
