The JBL Quantum Series gaming headsets aren’t new, and we’ve reviewed a couple here at Techaeris and were suitably impressed. At CES last week, the company announced that they were expanding the Quantum Series gaming headset line-up with new models for both Xbox and PlayStation consoles. JBL also announced a true wireless earbuds version for gaming on the go.
