Bring the gig home: JBL makes Father’s Day the celebration fit for dads

By KATHERINE MAGSANOC Published Jun 15, 2024 11:00 am

Music affects us more than we think it does. Listening to loud music and watching movies with surround sound have scientific impacts on our health.

For one, it helps us process emotions and thus reduces stress. Second, music helps us retain memory. Third, music helps reduce pain, increase our pulse rate, and reduce blood pressure. This is probably why bar gigs and cinemas are back in full force.

The problem is, after watching the gig or movie, some of us go home to silence. If only there was a way to bring the gig or cinema experience home with us, right?

Then JBL says, “Hold my beer.”

Keep the music playing

Father’s Day (which also celebrates solo moms) is all about celebrating dads and dad figures in our lives. We could be connected to them by blood or by vibe, and all we want is to give them something that would make them happy; something that would last as long as the smile it would put on their face.

For dads and dad figures who love music, movies, and bringing the party home, the best gift is also the best investment: JBL Authentics, JBL Spinner BT, or the JBL PartyBox Ultimate. You can get one or you can get all. You can get it for someone else or you can get it for yourself.

Just get it now.

JBL Authentics (starts at SRP P20,999): For the Dad who loves mid-century design combined with features perfect for the times

JBL’s Authentics line effortlessly gives off a classic and timeless feel, inspired by JBL’s iconic 1970s designs. It could easily stand out and serve as the highlight of your home (or Dad’s den) aesthetic. It is a conversation starter and social media experience in one—and it sounds even better.

The best part? It is made with the environment in mind, with recycled fabric, plastic, and aluminum. Good for the earth, good for the soul.

JBL Authentics come in three variations:

  • JBL Authentics 200 (SRP P20,999) - Offers big, balanced sound, amazing clarity, and deep bass
  • JBL Authentics 300 (SRP 26,999) - Offers a wide soundstage, crystal-clear highs, and deep bass
  • JBL Authentics 500 (SRP P39,999) - Offers high-definition lifelike sound with Dolby Atmos® Music thanks to its s aluminum tweeters and patented SlipStream™ bass port

The JBL Authentics 300 speaker also comes with a handle, making it much easier for Dad to bring it with him everywhere, even other parts of the house.

All three models come with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa available simultaneously, so Dad can play his favorite music and control his smart home devices hands-free, using only his voice.

JBL Spinner BT Turntable (starts at SRP P30,999): For Dad’s record collection, whether inherited from his father or his own

Vinyl has made a comeback in recent years, even before the pandemic came upon us. They brought out vinyl collectors, brought back to life vinyl hunters who know where to look in Raon or Quezon City, and influenced Millennials and Gen Zs to appreciate the crisp, imperfect sound of LPs on a turntable. Even vinyl-spinning DJs are back.

Dad can wax nostalgic to music on vinyl with the JBL Spinner BT Turntable thanks to the following features:
  • It can connect to any Bluetooth speaker or headphones. Using aptX™ HD encoding, there is no sonic compromise. The sound from your records is as good as with wires. The JBL Spinner
  • It includes analog outputs for existing Hi-Fi systems, with a phono preamp built-in for use with active speakers.

The JBL Spinner BT Turntable features an aluminum platter and tonearm—the perfect companion to long sessions of easy vinyl listening.

JBL PartyBox Ultimate (SRP P79,999): For the Dad who likes to feel the vibration and drop it like it’s hot

Is Dad a big party guy who likes filling up a huge space with music? JBL’s answer: the JBL PartyBox Ultimate. It is a massive party speaker with the powerful original JBL Pro Sound, boosted with an immersive Dolby Atmos experience over wi-fi. It also features a multi-dimensional lightshow so its lights move to the beat of the music, adding life to the party.

The speaker is splash-proof, so drinking is allowed even if nearby. It is self-tuning, so no matter where you position it in your party space, all you get is a great sound to dance (or sing) to.

To make the most of the JBL PartyBox Ultimate, Dad can use it with:
  • The JBL PartyPad™ for fun, interactive effects
  • The JBL One app for wireless pairing and multi-speaker connection

“Music makes the people come together,” Madonna says in one of her hit songs. Music also makes our loved ones feel loved, especially the music-loving Dad.

He deserves the best, so get him the best, and bring the gig home—get him JBL.
