JBL Quantum 100 - What's in the Box

FAQs & How-Tos

  • Non-removable microphone feature

    We've intentionally designed the flip-up boom mic to stay affixed to the headset. We know from experience that losing or breaking the detachable mic is never fun. Therefore, we designed the mic to fold neatly into the headset - this design also allows the mic to automatically mute when elevated. If you're wanting a detachable mic, please check out the Quantum 100 or the Quantum ONE.
  • What is Window Sonic Spatial Surround Sound?

    Windows Sonic is a virtual surround algorithm that is built into Windows 10 PCs. You can read more here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/coreaudio/spatial-sound
  • Why are my headphones shown as “speakers” on Windows?

    The “Speaker” mode allows the JBL QuantumENGINE to receive more than two channels of audio. It also prevents some applications from adding extra signal processing intended for other headphones, which would negatively impact the performance of the JBL QuantumSURROUND or JBL QuantumSPHERE 360 technology.

  • The story behind our Quantum name

    We wanted the name to reflect this futuristic inspiration married with cutting-edge technology. The Quantum name was ultimately chosen as it conjures images of both the technology aspect through the advances in quantum computing but also a very organic feel with reference to quantum physics and the science behind building upon small elements to make massive improvements. 

  • How to set up your microphone

    Ensure that only one voice chat application is in use while in-game. Be sure you hear a click when the microphone is flipped down. The microphone will only function when it is flipped down fully. If you see a red LED on the microphone, it is muted.
