Is JBL a Good Brand for Headphones and Speakers?


The History and Birth of the JBL Brand

The origin of the brand name JBL is taken from the initials of its founder: JAMES BULLOUGH LANSING.

This guy was a genius who died young. He made a signal transmitter in his teens, the kind that can interfere with local broadcasting signals; he founded a company called Lansing in his 20s, and that’s right, he used his surname. After the company was sold, he founded JBL in 1946. Unfortunately, this genius committed suicide in 1949 because of the huge debts he faced under the impact of the social and economic environment at that time. , So he committed suicide after buying insurance. The insurance compensation was used to repay the company’s debts, and at the same time left part of it for his wife and daughter.

To be honest, this man is very manly, but also very paranoid. But isn’t the world like this? It’s hard for people who are not paranoid to create great products. Jobs is like this, and so is Musk. It can be said that J’s suicide saved the JBL brand today.

After his death, William Thomas, the vice president of JBL at the time, shouldered a big responsibility. He first established the JBL Professional Division (professional product department), and then successively launched milestone products such as the 4300 series and the Cabaret series. During this period, another major event occurred. In 1969, the Harman Group officially acquired the JBL brand. JBL started the brand’s internationalization process with the double-speed mode, leading the professional audio market.

Later, the internal fission of the Harman Group, the JBL brand positioning was adjusted, and gradually formed two major development directions: civilian and professional. In the mid-1980s, the JBL Consumer and JBL Professional divisions even became separate brands.

Since then, almost all commendable JBL products have come from JBL Professional (hereinafter referred to as JBL Pro), including the 4400 monitor series equipped with Bi-Radial technology, the 4675 theater system certified by THX, and so on.

In 2001 and 2005, JBL Pro won the technical awards issued by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Its Cinema theater series speakers have also become the first choice of large commercial centers and professional cinemas in many countries.

Of course, there are many stories later. If you are interested to see this for yourself, we just need to know that JBL is now the speaker brand of Harman Kardon.
