The most iconic JBL products of all time, as told by JBL designers

Over the last 75 years, the American company has produced some of the most recognizable speaker systems in the history of audio equipment. Here are seven of them and the story behind each one.

Founded in the U.S. in 1946 by James Bullough Lansing, the audio pioneer who also founded Altec Lansing, JBL is one of the most recognizable brands in the history of the audio market. Today, as a member of the larger Harman Audio family, the brand has a clearer definition as the product line targeting millennials and younger audio enthusiasts. Within this process of rediscovering its identity, JBL is now reissuing a series of successful products from its past, like the L100 high-end speakers, updating them with contemporary features. Along with these projects, the company still embodies a spirit of experimentation with innovative audio products that try to tackle many different segments of the larger audio market. We've picked seven of the most recognizable ones, and we've asked Damian Mackiewicz, Vice President of Design ·and Director of Design at Harman Audio, and Rafal Czaniecki, Director of JBL Lifestyle, to tell us a bit more about each one of them.
