In December 2017, JBL Australia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HARMAN International & Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. unveiled the JBL LINK series, the first voice-activated speakers to bring together JBL’s Signature Sound with the Google Assistant. Led by the LINK 10 and LINK 20, the series gives consumers rich, full-range, portable sound and instant access to their favourite music through voice control, with the added bonus of being waterproof. Now, adding a new model to the range, JBL Australia has launched the LINK 300 – the third and most powerful speaker in the series yet.
JBL LINK is a hands free voice-activated speaker series with the Google Assistant built-in. Users can stream music, ask questions, manage everyday tasks, and easily control smart devices around the home – simply by using voice commands. By saying “Ok, Google,” the device can help perform tasks like playing a favourite song, finding delicious recipes for dinner parties, or even checking traffic before leaving the house.
Merging JBL’s signature sound and Google’s voice assistant technology, JBL LINK speakers bring together a powerful listening experience and a conversational voice assistant. The LINK speakers feature high-definition music streaming with Chromecast built-in, providing an elevated music experience, best-in class sound quality and endless entertainment from the most popular music and entertainment apps, all through a simple voice command.
“We are thrilled to pair JBL’s incredible legacy of award winning sound with our growing line-up of voice-controlled speakers,” said Michael Mauser, President of the Lifestyle Audio Division at HARMAN.“JBL LINK is a first-class wireless smart speaker that allows consumers to entertain and enjoy world class sound in a sleek package.”
LINK 10 and LINK 20 speakers are designed to be highly portable with 5 and 10 hours of battery life respectively, and the IPX7 waterproof design gives LINK even more versatility for enjoyment outdoors. The new LINK 300, however, delivers the most powerful sound in the series and can be easily linked together with multiple speakers to create a big, bold multi-room listening experience— within reach of any home Wi-Fi network.
Delivering JBL’s unrivalled sound quality with the hands-free convenience of Google Assistant, it’s no wonder the innovative LINK series has been making an impression in the market.
