Latest reports from Las Vegas says that JBL also joined Sennheiser by launching new headphones at the show. Sennheiser already launched a closed-back headphones and now JBL joins them by launching three new variants of Everest GA headphones, such as 710GA, 310GA, and 110GA.
The 710GA is an around-ear headphone and 310GA is an on-ear headphone. The 110GA is the only ear-phone in the line. All of the variants are reportedly packing JBL Pro Audio Sound and built-in Google Assistant. Addition of Google Assistant is the key feature that differentiates the latest GA series from other JBL headphones.
Jessica Garvey, Vice President, Headphones and Wearables, Lifestyle Audio Division at HARMAN was speaking about this, She said,
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, 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.
All you have to do is to connect the Everest GA headphone to your GA installed smartphone.
