JBL only entered the gaming headset space three years ago, but it’s trying to make up for lost ground with a range of new gear at CES 2023. The latest headphones all support QuantumSurround, the 7.1 surround sound technology, and several new models offer spatial audio with head tracking.

The Quantum 910P (PlayStation) and 910X (Xbox) are the company’s new high-end wireless headsets, each color-themed for their corresponding consoles. The over-ear headphones feature active noise canceling (ANC), 50mm drivers and spatial audio with head tracking. The built-in boom microphone has echo and noise suppression; you can mute it by flipping it up. In addition to PlayStation, the Quantum 910P works with PC and Nintendo Switch, while the 910X is compatible with Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC. The headsets will cost $300 when they arrive in March.

The Quantum 360P and 360X are mid-range wireless variants that support surround sound on PCs. They have smaller 40mm drivers and a shorter playback time (though still a healthy 22 hours). Meanwhile, the Quantum 100P and Quantum 100X are entry-level wired headsets with a 3.5mm jack, 40mm drivers and a microphone boom. The 100P works with PlayStation 5 3D audio and the 100X is compatible with Windows sonic surround sound. The 360 ​​P/X, launching in March, costs $139, while the wired 100P/X costs $40.


The Quantum TWS Air is JBL’s latest gaming earbuds that work with PC, Mac, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. (Xbox is not listed, suggesting JBL passed Microsoft licensing for the earbuds.) JBL included a USB-C dongle for devices without native Bluetooth playback support. The wireless earphones have 6.8mm drivers, with an advertised playtime of eight hours (the charging case adds another 16 hours). They have four microphones (two each) and support surround sound when used with a PC. The Quantum TWS Air will launch this summer for $100.
