JBL Authentics

Authentic sound. Authentic materials. Authentic JBL.

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.

Harman 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.

Hear what you've been missing!

Clari-Fi™ is a revolutionary technology that brings compressed music back to life. Clari-Fi analyzes digital audio files during playback and "rebuilds" much of what was lost in compression. At home, on the go, in the car – with Clari-Fi it simply sounds so much better. Clari-Fi is easy and convenient. Once applied, Clari-Fi works automatically. Clari-Fi is always on – no need to configure or adjust.

  • Rebuilds much of what was lost in the compression process
  • Works with all compressed audio formats. MP3, AAC, Radio, Playback or Streaming
  • Scales the amount of rebuilding – based on the quality of the individual source signal
  • Analyzes real time and corrects waveform deficiencies based on the existing audio information
  • HARMAN technology, based on a unique knowledge and expertise in acoustics, recording and playback technologies that no other company can match

Only Clari-Fi goes directly to the root of the problem and treats the corrupt audio signal. Other audio “enhancers” simply add EQ or reverb to existing content, and disregard if thebitrate is high or low. They do not reconstruct missing content and only try to mask it – with the unsatisfactory result of boosted artifacts and increased distortion.

  • High & low frequency extension and the elimination of frequency gaps for clearer sound, thanks to more available musical information
  • Accurate imaging, refocused voices and soloists
  • Transients and natural reverb are reinstated for a wider, more realistic sound stage
  • Increased dynamic range for improved realism, improved overall fidelity
