Harman Professional Solutions – new products – new structure

Posted on: Thursday 31st of January 2019

At NAMM, a welcome selection of new products were on display, to emphasise Harman Professional Solution’s commitment to audio. The recently-introduced JBL One Series 104 monitors draw on JBL Professional’s engineering experience to deliver a speaker designed from the ground up for desktop use, featuring a new-design 4.5-inch coaxial driver that provides a full range performance and relatively deep bass, without requiring a subwoofer and which, according to Harman, provides the listener with an accurate yet wide, sweet spot. This same R&D is also behind JBLS’s M2, 7-Series and 3-Series monitors.

Also on display were the AKG DMS100 and DMS300 professional digital wireless microphone systems. the eight-channel DMS300 and four-channel DMS100 are available in two configurations: a high-quality, AKG handheld microphone or an instrument- or headset-ready body pack. Offering 24-bit/48kHz uncompressed audio coding, ultra-low latency and signal security provided by AES 256-bit encryption, operating in the 2.4GHz band, a global license-free space, avoiding the interference found in traditional analogue.

AKG studio model headphones have been transformed into the portable, pocketable AKG K275, K245 and K175 foldable headphones designed for “content creators who need superb accuracy at an accessible price point”.

Meanwhile: “We are already seeing the positive impact from the restructuring we completed last year,” said Mohit Parasher, EVP and president, professional solutions, Harman International. “2018 was a record year for orders booked. This was driven by our highest year of audio product sales, as well as record growth in sales outside of the US. We also drove strong growth in profitability. The restructuring was necessary to leverage the power behind our brands. Each one operated independently with its own manufacturing, R&D, procurement and sales channels but there was huge potential to combine them into one platform.”
