Gaming speakers are a perfect complement so that you can enjoy more of your experience at the controls. What usually sets them apart from “normal” speakers? They usually have some type of specific sound profile focused on optimizing the game, as well as colored lights that, as you already know, are one of the great allies of gamers. And we have found some speakers that meet these premises, and some other that make them so interesting. It’s about the JBL Quantum Duo, a model with high quality and a price that, without being exaggerated, will make you wonder if it is really worth your purchase or not.
And we are also for that. Let us advise you and explain more about this product that has its lights and shadows.
JBL Quantum Duo design
We are faced with speakers with dimensions of 89 x 210 x 176 mm each and a weight of 2.8 kg. Despite their good power, they are quite compact for what they offer so they can be ideal to have on the desk, on the sides of the monitor. They are connected in stereo, but it is in the right speaker where we find a wheel to make the adjustments we want and in the back the connections that these speakers have. At the top is the power button, bluetooth and more settings.
They are made in one color polished glossy black and you can choose the color you want to emit its light. It is true that we would have liked to see them in more colors, especially so that they can adapt to any set up, whatever your style, but it is also true that black is a color that usually fits well in any setting.
They are very nice speakers, correctly sized and sold in sets of two.
Sound signed by JBL
JBL It is one of the sound brands that we like the most and its foray into the gaming world leaves us with a very good taste. The first thing we want to highlight about the JBL Gaming Quantum Duo is that they have a power of 20 W 2.0, more than enough for that room to become the gaming room you have always wanted.
JBL audiologists have designed a sound curve through the 2.5-inch neodymium tweeters, resulting in a surround sound. In addition, it incorporates technology Dolby Digital and JBL QuantumSOUND Signature. Both, combined with each other, and supported by the hardware of the speakers, makes you have a more realistic and immersive experience.
There are many speakers that sound good, that is true, that is why we consider that what gives these JBL Quantum Duo their added value are their light effects. You can synchronize the lights with the rhythm emitted by the speakers, whether it is music or if you are playing your favorite games, the light will accompany you and will make you enter fully on the pitch or the dance floor. This is achieved with the configuration patterns Wave or Flow, although you can also choose the pattern Solid if what you want is a fixed light of a certain color to be emitted.
Of course, if you wish, you can also turn off the light and make them look like traditional speakers, if you are in a moment of more concentration or if for any reason you don’t want your room to become a play of lights and special effects.

JBL Quantum Duo availability and price
If you’re looking for good-sounding speakers and configurable gaming lights, the JBL Quantum Duo are an excellent choice for you. In addition, they are quite compact and powerful, so you will not feel that you are missing anything with them. We do not recommend them if you are very sybarite with sound, in that case they may be somewhat short, or if you have made a set up with great care and this black color does not suit you. Gaming sets in which everything is white is becoming more and more common, so this point is also important to take it into consideration.
In summary, the JBL Quantum Duo are a perfect bet if you were planning to spend around the 100-150 euro range, you want a quality brand and good sound. You will not be disappointed. If you want over-ear headphones of the same range, here you can see the JBL Quantum 300.
