JBL seems to be picking things up a bit more, phasing out their last model series on their site ( all on sale ) making way for their new versions of the IEMs
No more sub par look, they must have worked on their sound I would guess also. The price of these new things has gone up a fair bit so is this an indicator of better quality sound???
Anyhow what struck me as seriously impressive looking is the new JBL Synchros S700 Premium cans ( die cast aluminum and steel ), there is a smaller S500 over-ears and smaller on-ears S300 also.
Interesting thing here is that they also have some DSP thing that with the press of a button makes it seem like music is on stage. Of course turn it off to go " passive " whenever you want.
JBL being a division of Harmon ( AKG ) who knows what they have come up with here now..
CERTAINLY THE R&D budget is definitely there for them.

Amazon review for what its worth really.
S200a premium iem:
and a brief impression from in here.
another thing to keep tabs on
Sure look a whole heck of a lot different than their recent "intro" stuff. No comparison AT ALL .
