CES 2018, LAS VEGAS – January 8, 2018 – HARMAN International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. focused on connected technologies for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, today announced the launch of the JBL Everest 710GA, 310GA and 110GA. The around-ear, on-ear and in-ear premium wireless headphones combine legendary JBL Pro Audio Sound with built-in Google Assistant.
After an easy setup on Bluetooth enabled smartphones and tablets, the JBL Everest GA headphones, along with the Google Assistant, are ready to provide easy and quick assistance, whenever and wherever it’s needed. Now featuring the Google Assistant, users can take full control of their music experience with the use of voice control and receive notifications without needing to look at their smartphone or tablet. To access the Google Assistant, download the Assistant on your phone, connect the headphone and then simply touch the sensors located on the ear cup. Once activated, listeners can control volume, get access to meetings and events, and enjoy tracks on-the-go by stating simple phrases like, “volume up/down,” “tell me about my day” or “play pop music.”
JBL’s legendary Pro Audio Sound intensifies the experience by delivering impeccable sound. The wireless headphones’ long-lasting battery gives audiophiles more flexibility to listen to the entertainment of their choice for 8 to 25 hours, depending on the model. Additionally, a quick recharge feature enables users to quickly juice up the battery to maximum capacity.
“Adding the Google Assistant to the Everest line is another step we’re taking to pair JBL’s legacy of award-winning sound with a growing line-up of voice-controlled devices,” said Jessica Garvey, Vice President, Headphones and Wearables, Lifestyle Audio Division at HARMAN. “Having the Google Assistant on JBL Everest GA headphones means you can stay connected to more of what matters to you, whether that’s enjoying music, getting information about the world around you or managing your daily tasks –just by using your voice.”
To support hours of comfortable listening, the Everest GA headphones are ergonomically-designed for peak enjoyment. The on-ear and around-ear models incorporate a specially-curved headband to eliminate pressure on the ears, while the ear cushions are expertly crafted with lightweight, memory-foam materials to maintain an effortless fit. Depending on the model, the wireless series offers a variety of on-trend metallic shades including Gunmetal and Mountain Silver.
