Authentic sound. Authentic materials. Authentic JBL.
Play and share your favorite Spotify music wirelessly, by upgrading your Authentics L8/L16 with the latest firmware
Time to connect with the new sound of legacy
The JBL Authentic L8 and JBL Authentic L16 wireless speakers combine classic speaker design with groundbreaking wireless technology.
Inspired by the legendary JBL Century L100 loudspeakers, they feature authentic materials, optimized low-frequency and high-frequency JBL transducers and meticulous acoustic design. The result is jaw-dropping audio quality and a wide stereo image from a single enclosure. With AirPlay, DLNA and Bluetooth connectivity, both Authentics models stream audio from any wireless device.
Clari-Fi technology replaces the details lost in today’s compressed music files, adding detail and energy to any low quality music stream. Not only that, but a free JBL MusicFlow app lets you easily control playback with iOS or Android mobile devices. And both speakers incorporate connection for an optional wireless charging pad for Qi compatible devices.
Stylish and self-contained, either speaker is an ideal sound system for any living space or audio source.
Inspired by the legendary JBL Century L100 loudspeaker, the precision cut foam grill both looks beautiful and still
allows the amazing JBL sound to breath.
