Launching the JBL Soundbar Series

The JBL Soundbar Series launch event was attended by JBL and Harman International executives; JBL dealers; friends from the media; and special guests including actress and film-producer Bela Padilla, dancer and producer Gab Valenciano, digital creators and power-couple Patricia Henson and Daniel Peters.

Moreover, JBL brought together an Expert Panel who were able to test the soundbars for themselves prior to the event. These professionals, including artist and event director Raymond Lauchengco, music producer Jumbo de Belen, and architect Gel Cabantac Cases, are leaders in their respective fields and have a thorough understanding of what it takes to produce an outstanding audio experience. Each one of them brings a unique perspective and set of skills to the table, making them the perfect candidates to put our sound bars to the test.

“When I tried out the JBL Bar 1300 I was like oh my goodness this is so superior to anything I’ve experienced in the past,” exclaimed Raymond Lauchengco. “I have never been a fan of soundbars until now because previously I found the experience to be very—you know the sound was all coming from the front. Very linear. But with [JBL Bar 1300], the sound was everywhere. It was like being in a movie theater or sitting in front of my very own private concert hall. That’s what it felt like.”

Jumbo de Belen also attested to JBL’s ability to bring movie-theater audio quality to the home. He explained “As a producer, I’ve been working on spatial mixes so it’s an experience that you only get to have in the cinema. [With JBL,] it’s readily available in your homes right now.”

The series also includes variants that are simpler and easier to set up. Gel Cabantac Cases narrated, “I’m not really techy… I’d rather stay away from equipment but then when I saw the JBL box I was like ‘I can do this by myself.’ Then I tried and opened it, and then in 5 minutes I was already calibrating! My 3-year-old was like ‘Where’s that sound coming from?’ We were just watching YouTube… She started dancing and I was like, ‘it sounds awesome, right?’ She had a really fun time with it. She had a blast trying out the soundbar.”
