JBL has introduced two new additions to its Quantum line-up for gamers: the Quantum Stream USB microphone and the Quantum Stream TWS wireless gaming headset.
The JBL Quantum Stream is a dual-condenser USB microphone that can be used to coordinate with teammates. A reversible stand provides 360° movement, or mount in other ways. It has a pair of 14mm dual-capsule Electret condenser with 24-bit and 96kHz sampling rate. Two selectable voice pickup patterns allow you to focus the microphone’s capture on just the speaker’s voice or capture everyone’s voice in the room if recording a podcast or on a group call. Tap the top button to mute, which will activate an RGB indicator light for ease of use when in the middle of a battle or conference call.
Set-up is simple with the universal mounting solution and voice monitoring control. Mount the stand to fit your gaming setup and control your voice volume directly on the microphone.
The JBL Quantum Stream will be available in Canada in the summer of 2022 through distribution Erikson Multimedia for $139.98.
For gamers who prefer an in-ear, wire-free experience, there’s the JBL Quantum TWS, which provides realistic JBL QuantumSURROUND for a spatial surround sound experience. This is combined with True Adaptive Noise Cancelling and Ambient Aware features to control outside noises and minimize distractions.
The included USB-C dongle brings a low latency connection to players on a PC, Mac, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and supported mobile devices. The JBL Quantum TWS also supports two connections at the same time so players can connect to their preferred gaming device via USB-C dongle, plus a Bluetooth connection on a mobile device so they never miss a call. Because it’s lightweight, the JBL Quantum TWS can be worn for long gaming sessions. They are also IPX5 sweat resistant.
The JBL Quantum TWS will sell for $229.98 once available in summer 2022.
