We knew it was time again for us to redefine the future of sound. That’s why we designed a new floorstanding loudspeaker that reaches far and above what other companies can even fathom: our new JBL® Studio 280 dual 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker. As a signature part of the new 10-piece JBL Studio 2 loudspeaker series, the Studio 280 was built to take legacy sound and forward-thinking technology up to unrivaled heights. Tested relentlessly in the world’s most advanced sound research lab – our own – as well as pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies, the Studio 280 does just that.
Its dual 6.5” PolyPlas midrange drivers deliver twice the signature potency and polish of JBL legacy, and a rear-firing Slipstream bass port envelops your senses in tight, accurate bass. But going farther than anyone else isn’t far enough at JBL. Inspired by our own work in developing the world’s most legendary recording studios, we invested our Studio 280 with the kind of tech that makes for true cinema-grade listening. We made improvements like a 1” CMMD® Lite high-frequency driver that ensures low-distortion, and a High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design that offers pinpoint sound imaging and firm natural balance.
We braced the loudspeaker’s interior from edge-to-edge in order to minimize cabinet flexing, and eliminate bass distortion. Then we capped it with seductive 21st century features like gloss black paneling, soft rounded edges, and your choice of either Black or Espresso woodgrain finish. For those able to see and hear the truth, we’re confident you’ll know it – full volume – at first look and first listen.
The results are in from lab and listeners alike: the Studio 280 is simply one of the finest, dynamically accurate floorstanding loudspeakers ever built in its class. Decades of JBL acoustic research and development have made their loud impact. With its twin 6.5” PolyPlas drivers delivering twice the unrivaled accuracy and realism of JBL sound, we’ll let a masterpiece speak for itself.
