For more than 70 years, JBL® has delivered products that exemplify the technology and expertise gained through a leadership role in professional sound reproduction. The JBL name has been synonymous with the precise, naturally articulated sound found in many of the world’s most prestigious locations, including clubs, cinemas and recording studios, and live-music reinforcement in venues ranging from concert halls to outdoor stadiums. JBL loudspeakers are for those who won’t compromise – in the studio, at home or on the road. Due to increasing popularity, many great brands are subject to counterfeiting. These individuals and organizations take advantage of both the consumer and the brand they attempt to counterfeit with total disregard for the customer experience.
Counterfeit products are not authentic and therefore do not meet the high quality and safety standards established by JBL. These products are inferior and usually fail a short time after first use due to poor components & expose consumers to potential safety hazards even when not in use.
To ensure you are purchasing a genuine JBL product, and not a counterfeit, shop with confidence with one of JBL’s Authorized Dealers or direct at JBL.com & Harmanaudio.com. Click here to learn more about how to identify a potential counterfeit JBL product before you purchase.
BUY ONLY FROM AN AUTHORIZED DEALER (Amazon and other online marketplaces)
Many marketplace resellers are not authorized dealers of JBL products. When purchasing JBL products on Amazon.com or any marketplace, it is important to note where the product is being “shipped from and sold by,” which is stated clearly in the header for each product. Please locate the seller’s name on our Authorized Online Dealer List or contact us directly at 000 800 040 1973 before you purchase to ensure they are an authorized dealer.
JBL items purchased from unauthorized resellers do not qualify for warranty and customer service fulfilled by JBL as it is uncertain if these goods are genuine.
