CES 2019 was a resounding success for HARMAN, resulting in seven Innovation Awards for some of HARMAN’s latest adaptive and connected audio products. The award winners include:

  • JBL Endurance DIVE, wireless sports headphones with MP3 player
  • Under Armour Sport Wireless Pivot, secure-fitting wireless sport earphones with JBL sound and technology
  • Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5, a wireless speaker featuring wireless dual sound
  • Harman Kardon Esquire Mini 2, an ultra-slim and portable premium BlueTooth speaker
  • JBL Link Drive, a plug and play device featuring Google Voice Assistant
  • Lexicon RV-9 Class G Immersive Surround Sound Audio/Video Receiver
  • Mark Levinson 5000 Series, No5802 and No5805 integrated amplifiers

Each year, the CES Innovation Awards celebrate outstanding product design and engineering in brand-new consumer technology products with two levels of honorees across 28 product categories. In each product category, a three-member judging team comprising an independent industrial designer, an independent engineer, and a member of the trade press assigns a numerical value according to five criteria. The criteria include engineering qualities, aesthetic qualities, and unique or novel features. The scores are then combined, resulting in a cumulative score for each product. A baseline value is derived from the cumulative scores in each category, and all scores above the baseline are designated as Honorees.

“Over the course of the past six years, HARMAN has won more than 300 awards for 197 different products. This constantly growing list is an indisputable testament to the talent, commitment, and passion for excellence that HARMAN’s designers and engineers share. Year after year, they design and develop products and solutions that delight our customers and secure HARMAN’s position at the forefront of connected innovation,” said Michael Mauser, President Lifestyle Audio.
