What is JBL Quantum One Gaming Headset Attempting

JBL surprised audiophiles in January when it announced that it was entering the battle for the crown of the best gaming headsets with seven wireless and wired options. The pioneering JBL Quantum One (optimized for PC, but also compatible with Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and smartphones) follows the motto “ in for a pound ” by offering spatial or 3D sound, three connectivity options and RGB lighting which can be controlled by Program ready to compete with the most recognized gaming brands.

But despite the massive $ 300 price tag when it hit retailers on April 13, the Quantum One isn’t making the quantum leap in gaming performance that JBL’s QuantumSphere 360 ​​3D audio tracking technology promises. However, a number of features mean that the Quantum One still has a lot to offer.

JBL missed the game’s aesthetics of the first two-player flagship game; It is a dove on his head. While JBL’s non-gaming over-ear set of headphones is very subdued in style save for a few bright colors, the Quantum One looks extreme from the jump, with its striking lines, exposed wires with splashes of orange. , giant logos and a monumental design.

With the amount of tech being packaged, it’s no wonder Quantum One is on the heavy side. Compared to something like the 10.9-ounce (310g) Patriot Viper V380 (which also has RGB lighting, as well as virtual surround sound), the 13.01-ounce (369g) Quantum One is a burden. But the HyperX Cloud Orbit S, which also has head tracking, is significantly lighter at just 12.98 ounces (368g). But while the Cloud Orbit S felt a bit heavy on my skull, Quantum One was easier on my big head. However, during long gaming sessions, the Quantum One started to feel tight, like it was gently pressing the side of my head with leather-covered cushions, thanks to the memory foam ear cups. Wearing glasses only made things worse. On the plus side, leather cushion covers are a soft luxury, even if the pillows are a bit dense.

Before activating the three RGB regions, highlight Quantum One. The bold JBL logo actually looks too tall on Quantum One, thanks to its large size, reflected letters, and surrounding diagonal stripes. With the RGB padding in the spaces between these diagonal lines, the box maker is no one’s secret.

The details in the stripes that divide the sections and the slightly reflective vents give the headphones a spaceship feel. The headphones can be tilted back and forth from the fork and rotated 180 degrees inward. Meanwhile, the headband extends the head with powerful movements. Although the ear extender and fork feel plastic, they appear thick and strong. The headband extension reveals additional reflective details to maintain the Quantum One sci-fi look.

The soft material on the inside of the headband looks somewhat less luxurious than the earmuffs, and the cushion is divided into three zones. It still feels as comfortable as a full strip of padding, and the division here adds up to ruling out Quantum One for minutes. The top of the headband features another, but more subtle, JBL logo, which is framed in more lines.

I never like to see exposed wires in my headphones. It might look great, but the added pressure of potential damage isn’t worth it. Fortunately, the cables that hang from the headband to each earbud are sturdy and braided. It also introduces a touch of the orange that JBL has on the rest of the cables and inside the headphones.

Speaking of headphones, they offer a host of controls on the left side, with an easily accessible audio wheel, a microphone button, an Active Noise Canceling (ANC) / TalkThru button (which toggles between the two), and a talk button. re-centering of the head tracker (more about those in the features section). There is also an LED light to let you know that ANC or TalkThru is on.

It’s easy to forget RGB lighting, as you won’t normally see it. But if you’re someone who likes to be seen in action, the Quantum One has great LED options. JBL’s accompanying software preloads six lighting effects for three separate lighting zones. The first area is the back of the emblem, the second is the loops around the earbuds, and the third is the notch on the outer edge of each earbud. You can control each area, including different effects, such as solid, breath, solid, wave, glitch, and rotation, in different colors (including the color picker) and the duration of each effect or color. In the end, you can create some amazing effects. You can also quickly turn off RGB by pressing and holding the mute button on the left earbud, but you won’t know it’s off until you look at the two earbuds yourself.

Overall, Quantum One is a bit underwhelming in the looks category. Larger heads can feel a little pressure on the cans. The design, from the inflated center logos with diagonal and RGB stripes, as well as the black and orange cables, looks cheesy. Despite its adult price and features, the Quantum One’s design seems to be aimed at teenagers. But it is one of the few pieces of technology that avoids collecting fingerprints.

Choosing a design that I agree with is just right for you; The in-ear headphones have large orange “L” and “R” markings made with diagonal orange stripes, through which the cup motors can be seen.

Quantum One also offers extensive connectivity options. There is a removable 3.5mm cable for Xbox One, PS4, Switch, smartphones, or even the best VR headsets. However, to enjoy 3D audio or counterbalance dialing for voice chat, software, ANC, or TalkThru in game, you must use a USC-C to USB-A cable.
