JBL by Harman

HARMAN, the premium audio and infotainment group announced the introduction of a range of exciting new products in India during the festive season. The brand launched over 50 new products, several of which have been designed exclusively for the Indian market.

HARMAN through its flagship brand, JBL, is looking to tap the immense potential in the wearable audio market with over half of the new launches belonging to this category. These products are available in a range of quirky designs/colors and have a high youth-appeal, something that is also captured in the energetic and peppy marketing campaign that was recently unveiled featuring brand ambassadors Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra.

‘We’ve developed a range of products keeping in mind the preferences of the Indian consumer. The products combine affordability with the superlative audio experience that JBL is renowned for the world over, in order to provide the discerning Indian consumer with the best value for their money,’ said Mr. Sharath S, Director Lifestyle business, HARMAN India.

‘Most of the JBL products that we launched this festive season are attractively priced at under INR 10k. From the award winning JBL Charge 2 to products designed for the India market like the T300A headphones and J305 BT Mobile hands free, this is clearly the most extensive launch of new products this year.’ said Sahil Sani, Director, Sahil Audio International.

Adding to the festivities, HARMAN recently announced the launch of a whole new concept in the car aftermarket audio, JBL Autostage.
