is a brand synonymous with audio and audio technology. The company has been around since the 1940s, so they know a thing or two about advances in the space, or in making those advances themselves. Interestingly, they've only just now begun to look into gaming as a branch for their well-rooted audio tree, but if the Quantum series is just the first step, we're very keen to see where it all goes from here.
Here's a snippet from our in-depth JBL Quantum 800
Bluetooth 5.0 and lossless 2.4GHz audio gives the Quantum 800s an edge in moving around your gaming space. Need a drink from the fridge while your level loads, or you’re waiting for more players to join your lobby? Don’t take them off, take them with you. This freedom coupled with the comfort and lightweight overall design (410 grams) makes the 800s a tantalising option. And while they’re gaming-first in features, I’ve been using them as music and video options as well where mobile streaming is concerned, just because they feel and sound so nice.

ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) as mentioned earlier is a clincher over some other similar options on the market, while a solid 14-odd hours of battery life at full charge means long wireless sessions aren’t an issue, especially for console couch gaming. The headset’s mic is Discord-certified for all your organisational needs, or for expletive-laden discourse among teams, and we didn’t really have any issues here where clarity of voice is concerned, across all platforms tested on -- PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X.
