Still quite young on the gaming headset market, JBL continues to expand its range with the imminent arrival of its new spearhead, the Quantum 910 Wireless. Announced at 249 €, this one has everything from high-end gaming headphones. The Harman subsidiary first highlights the many on-board technologies such as the JBL Quatum Sphere 360 or the JBL Quantum Spatial 360, high-sounding names that hide, neither more nor less, a 3D virtualization feature with motion tracking. the head. The experience offered by the helmet would thus be able to “outperform the most popular surround sound technologies available on gaming headsets”, according to Alfredo Fernandez Franco, Senior Director of Immersive Audio at Harman.
The design of the helmet itself is nothing particularly original. It takes up the look of JBL’s range of Quantum headphones, in particular that of the Quantum One, the brand’s current flagship. We are therefore entitled to thick leatherette pads topped with plastic shells proudly displaying an RGB border. The microphone is placed at the end of a liftable stem.
The Quantum 910 Wireless is particularly generous in connection possibilities. In addition to the wireless connection using the supplied USB-C adapter, the headphones are Bluetooth 5.2 compatible and have a mini-jack input. JBL announces a solid autonomy of 39 hours with USB-C charging. Still according to JBL, the headphones can be used while charging, unlike the Quantum 600 we tested. A good point.
The headset is equipped with 50 mm speakers, developed by Harman, offering compatibility with Hi-Res content. An active noise reduction feature is also on the program so as not to be disturbed by outside noise in the middle of a game. Like all JBL wireless headphones, the Quantum 910 Wireless is of course compatible with the JBL Quantum Engine software giving access to many parameters such as an equalizer or settings for the microphone.
The Quantum 910 Wireless is expected in mid-September and will retail for €249.
