It fuses the icon design from the 1970s that’s inspired by the L100 speaker with modern technology.
Among all the devices that are in the range, the biggest highlight is the Authentics 500. It’s an all-in-one audio system that offers both Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.
Another thing that makes the JBL Authentics 500 stand out is that it’s capable of delivering a Dolby Atmos experience. Besides the Authentics 500, the lineup consists of the portable Authentics 300 and the smaller-sized Authentics 200.
All the speakers within the range feature a construction of premium materials. That includes an aluminum frame, a reimagined Quadrex grille, and a custom synthetic leather-wrapped enclosure.
Looking for specific specs? The JBL Authentics 500 comes packed with three 1-inch tweeters and three 2.75-inch midrange woofers. It also has a 6.5-inch down-firing subwoofer.
This driver setup of the Authentics 500 makes the speaker capable of delivering 270 watts of 3.1-channel sound. And as mentioned earlier, it comes with Dolby Atmos tech to offer a highly immersive audio experience.
The JBL Authentics 200 boasts two 1-inch tweeters, a down-firing 6-inch passive radiator, and a full-range 5-inch woofer. Its rated power output is 100 watts, which is more than enough to fill your room with sound.
Finally, the Authentics 300 is more of a portable audio solution. The power output rating is at 90 watts. While that may seem a bit low, it’s more than enough to meet all your on-the-go listening demands.
Another great part of the Authentics 300 is that it features a decent sized battery. The wireless speaker can offer up to 8 hours of runtime with a full charge.
All the speakers of the JBL Authentics series have support for multi-room playback. That means you can place the speakers throughout your home and make them sync with one another.
The speakers also have support for Amazon Alexa and Google Home app. This feature will make integrating the speakers into your smart home setup easier. And controlling the speakers will be much easier for this integration.
Moreover, you can personalize the audio output for all the speakers within the JBL Authentics range. They come with the JBL One companion app. It lets you fine-tune the audio parameters and make the speakers sound exactly how you want them to.
Once you set the speakers up with the JBL One app, you can use voice commands to control the playback. The app also enables you to set timers and control other smart home devices.
