With the Quantum series, JBL offers users from price-conscious to high-end a whole range of choices for gaming headsets. We took a closer look at the top model for you. The JBL Quantum One, a wired headset with an MSRP of €249. After taking a look at the Quantum One’s spec sheet, expectations are already pretty high. Whether features like Active Noise Cancelling and QuantumSPHERE 360 room sound justify the high price, we found out for you in our test.

Scope of delivery
The packaging alone had us in awe. The One arrives, you open the lid and think to yourself, “Wow, that’s some neat presentation.” The headset itself is packaged in a plastic mold, which is encased in thick cardboard. All the other accessories are in a small box attached to the bottom of the carton. So there is no need to worry about any damage during delivery.
Let’s take a closer look at the scope of delivery. In addition to the headset, a clip-on microphone is included, which can be removed at will. Also included is a common jack cable, for use on the console. A volume wheel has been integrated into the cable, as well as a slider to mute the microphone. Also included is a USB-C to USB-A cable. This cable is intended for use on a PC, and almost halfway down the cable length is a station of sorts that can be used to adjust the game/chat balance. And last but not least, there’s another microphone, which is meant to be used for calibrating the in-house QuantumSPHERE surround sound. We will go into more detail about this microphone later in this review.
