Product Information

JBL knew it was time again for them to redefine the future of sound. That’s why they designed a new floorstanding loudspeaker that reaches far and above what other companies can even fathom: the new JBL® Studio 280 dual 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker. As a signature part of the new 10-piece JBL Studio 2 loudspeaker series, the Studio 280 was built to take legacy sound and forward-thinking technology up to unrivaled heights.

Tested relentlessly in the world’s most advanced sound research lab – JBL’s own – as well as pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies, the Studio 280 does just that. Its dual 6.5” PolyPlas midrange drivers deliver twice the signature potency and polish of JBL legacy, and a rear-firing Slipstream bass port envelops your senses in tight, accurate bass. But going farther than anyone else isn’t far enough at JBL. Inspired by their own work in developing the world’s most legendary recording studios, they invested the Studio 280 with the kind of tech that makes for true cinema-grade listening. JBL made improvements like a 1” CMMD® Lite high-frequency driver that ensures low-distortion, and a High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design that offers pinpoint sound imaging and firm natural balance. They braced the loudspeaker’s interior from edge-to-edge in order to minimize cabinet flexing, and eliminate bass distortion. Then they capped it with seductive 21st century features like gloss black paneling, andsoft rounded edges. For those able to see and hear the truth, JBL is confident you’ll know it – full volume – at first look and first listen.

Features:

  • 1” CMMD® Lite high-frequency driver for crisp, clean, powerful highs with low-distortion and wide dynamics.
  • High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design for astounding imaging, natural balance, and remarkable high-frequency detail at any position in the room.
  • Dual 6.5” PolyPlas drivers for enhanced vocal clarity and realism and tight, extended bass response.
  • Internal edge-to-edge bracing greatly reduces cabinet wall flexing, thereby significantly improving bass response and lowering distortion.
  • Solid cabinet construction with soft-rounded edges and no visible fasteners.
  • Gloss black top panel adds a touch of elegance to the sleek cabinet design.
  • Soft-touch paint covers the horn and driver trim rings for a clean, timeless look that blends easily with any décor.
  • Rear-firing Slipstream bass port minimizes port turbulence and audible distortion in the bass response.

What’s in the box:

  • JBL® Studio 280 3-way Dual 6.5" Floorstanding Loudspeaker
  • Owner’s Manual
  • Carpet Spikes x 4

Extremely good speakers
With a good receiver, these speakers would rival any speakers 10 times it price. My experience was pure and utter amazement. If you could demo it, do give it a try

Good sound, Good quality
first of all i want to talk about the size, they are big speakers if you have a very small room they will not fit proper and if it was me i was not going to use them in bedroom. my living room is 8 by 8 meters and they fit in this area very well.
built quality is very good and they seem very durable
their appearance is somehow classic and? piano looking, from the first look they show that they are high end products.
if I go to the sound i have to say that they are AMAZING. as JBL says hear the truth they really work in that way. before i go for them I heard Klipsch, KEF and monitor studio speakers but i was looking for pure sound so i choose them. if you are looking for a set of speakers with detailed and powerful sound they are great choice.
I use Denon AVR x520 BT receiver with them and they sound great.

Excellent way to enter the world of hi-fi
These speakers were my first proper speakers that I paid for in the excess of 100$. I have had terrible, ok, and not too bad speakers before, but these felt like I had gotten something really premium back then. Today I have various speakers that cost as much as the 280's together or even more, yet I still consider them excellent value for money. There are obviously better speakers in the world, but they will cost you a lot more, there is very little competition for the 280 at it's price in my opinion. There certainly are more expensive speakers that don't perform nearly as well too.

Music, movies or games, none leave me wanting something else. They are great and I don't see any faults in them, kind of wish there was on option to pay twice the money and get the same speakers with better quality components in them to upgrade my Studio 280 main speakers. They have a slight emphasis on the mid frequencies and things like that ultimately boil down to personal preferances though. Because of that emphasis, I also recommend you get a subwoofer for the sake of balance and then you should be all set and ready to rock!

The top of the speakers likes to gather dust because of it's glossy surface which is easily scratched, which is the only negative I can think of. Instead of that glossy material, that money could have been spent on something else in the speaker. Again, personal preferances though, nothing fundamental.

Great speakers overall, I recommend them with a subwoofer if possible for people who want to jump into the world of hifi. They really benefit from a subwoofer though, not because of some issues with lower frequencies but because their strength lies in the mid frequency in my opinion and by using a subwoofer you can really reinforce this strong point and get a well balanced system no matter if it's stereo or surround.

At this price point, you want a speaker that specializes in something instead of a jack-of-all-trades to build a good sounding system and the Studio 280 is a true mid range specialist that can hold it's own alone but also plays well with others.

I like the speakers. I had bought it to play with Marantz PM 8005 and cd 6005. It sounds good. But I am being told by your dealers that these are not the musical speakers that you have bought , it is to be played in a home theatre system. I should have looked at some other option. Is that true?

Using the 280`s (floor- and centerspeaker) for over a year now together with a Harman Kardon AVR265. Deep bass, very well balanced middle and one of the clearest high I ever heard in a speaker of this priceclass. Very happy with them!
