Groundbreaking research performed by Harman engineers has revealed insights into consumer preference for headphone sound, which has been the foundation for the acoustic design of this new headphone line. JBL engineers used this proprietary insight and decades of audio engineering expertise to develop a line of headphones that deliver a balanced audio experience with amazing clarity and deep, powerful, bass.

"Many manufacturers advertise headphone sound based on a popular artist's recording expertise, but few truly understand consumer preference for headphone sound the way HARMAN does", said Michael Mauser, President of HARMAN Lifestyle. "To achieve the audio profile we know consumers want, we went to the time tested performance of JBL professional audio speakers, the same ones used in the top clubs and concert venues around the world. Our engineers scientifically modeled the sound of these industry leading speakers and applied it to headphones, bringing the award winning JBL pro sound to consumers for the first time."

In the JBL Synchros headphone lineup, JBL debuts its patent pending JBL LiveStage™ signal processing technology. JBL LiveStage™ adds localization cues to deliver a more lifelike listening experience, recreating the warm natural feeling of being "in the room" within the headphones. The result is a headphone listening experience similar to that of listening to music from a stage in front of you. JBL LiveStage™ gives the listener a greater sense of spatial presence and separation, with individual instruments and voices sounding richer and clearer. JBL Synchros headphones with JBL LiveStage™ bring the music to life in a way that consumers have never experienced before.

JBL Synchros S700 premium powered over-ear stereo headphones are the flagship model of the line.
