Top model offers 1080/60p AVCHD Progressive Recording
WAYNE, NJ, June 23, 2015 － Capturing life’s adventures on video isn’t always smooth sailing, which is why JVC today announced two new rugged, weather-proof camcorders that can endure foul weather, get bounced around and still be ready to shoot. Their all-weather features, five-hour battery life, powerful optical zoom and other advanced functions offer opportunities to create unique videos that can’t easily be captured with a smartphone.
The two new JVC Everio camcorders – the GZ-R450 and GZ-R320 – feature JVC’s Quad-Proof structure that is waterproof to a depth of 16.4 feet, can withstand a drop from 4.9 feet, is freeze-proof down to 14° and dust-proof. What’s more, both camcorders float.
All this durability comes in a camcorder form factor with video recording functions such as high-powered 40x optical zoom, advanced image stabilization and large LCD monitor. In addition, the GZ-R450 offers 1080/60p AVCHD Progressive Recording for pristine HD video.
The battery is internal for superior water resistance, which eliminates the risk of damaging the camcorder when exchanging batteries in bad weather. The battery’s five-hour life is easily extended thanks to the camcorders’ compatibility with third-party portable batteries* – the type widely available for smartphone charging.

JVC XX Elation series headphones combine performance and design in on-ear and in-ear versions.
WAYNE, NJ, June 18, 2015 – JVCKENWOOD today announced the availability of its new JVC XX Elation headphone series that offers a combination of balanced, clean sound and fashionable design.
The new line consists of three models – the on-ear wireless HA-SBT200X, the on-ear HA-SR100X and the in-ear HA-FR100X. Each includes a remote and microphone built into the headphone housing, a feature typically found only on higher-priced headphones, and all three boast a unique, sleek, glossy design.
Each XX Elation headphone features a dual magnet structure that improves diaphragm response speed to deliver clean, solid bass, tight low-mid performance and crisp highs. A new X-Damper that fastens the driver to the baffle board further contributes to the headphones’ clean sound by minimizing internal vibrations.
The two on-ear models – the wireless HA-SBT200X and HA-SR100X – are identical, with 40mm diaphragms and a durable, polyamide resin headband that’s both strong and flexible, and a detachable single-sided 3.9-foot (1.2 meters) cord with gold-plated iPhone compatible plug.
The HA-SBT200X offers wireless streaming from compatible Bluetooth devices (AVRCP, A2DP, HSP and HFP profiles), with one-touch pairing via Near Field Communication (NFC) technology and approximately 10 hours of battery life. It also offers a Hyper Bass Sound circuit that when turned on delivers a bass boost. The HA-SBT200X comes in black, while the HA-SR100X is available in black, silver and violet.
The latest review of a JVC home theater projector comes from Projector Central, which reviewed our DLA-X500R and awarded it a "Highly Rated" ranking, with five stars for performance, ease of use and value, and 4.5 stars for features. They were impressed with the projector's black levels, noting, "The projector's black level is deeper than deep, to the point where its black level rivals that of solid-state projectors that can turn their light sources completely off," and "It has some of the best black levels and on/off contrast performance we've seen on a lamp-based projector..." And as for picture quality: "...the projector delivers an image that is life-like and crisp, with tons of fine detail evident in high-quality HD material."

TechRadar.com recently took our HA-ETR40 sport headphones for a test run -- literally -- and despite some initial skepticism, the reviewer was sold! As he put it: "...when it comes to headphones NO pair of earbuds will ever stay in without surgical attachment. Until now."
Apparently, reviewer Gareth Beavis has a problem getting headphones to stay in his ears. So he was very doubtful about our claims for the HA-ETR40. But he pressed on, went for a run and...."they didn't fall out. So I ran faster. They refused to budge. Lather, rinse, repeat: these JVC earbuds are the best fitting headphones my terrible expanses of skin I have for ears have ever encountered, locking in for any run type I tried over a week."

WAYNE, NJ, February 11, 2015 – JVC is off and running with a promotional campaign to support its sports headphones line with sponsorship of a national series of 15k/5k races held in major markets across the U.S.
The brand is the exclusive headphone sponsor of the Hot Chocolate 15k/5k race series, which is produced by RAM Racing. Each race concludes with a post-race party where runners enjoy music, a family-friendly kid zone, hot chocolate and chocolate fondue with dippables. JVC is participating in 14 races in 2015, demonstrating its sports headphones at a finish line tent on race day and during the two-day expo that precedes each race where runners pick up their entry packet.
At each event JVC offers participants a chance to win JVC products by snapping photos with the JVC Gumy headphone mascot, Gumbo, and posting the photos to social media. Gumbo is also making visits to local Ronald McDonald Houses, the official charity for the Hot Chocolate 15k/5k.
JVC’s newest sports headphones include four models, two in the Gumy Sport line and two in the Extreme Fitness line. The Gumy Sport headphones, the HA-EN10 and HA-ENR15, are both sweat proof and feature a Nozzle Fit earpiece made of soft silicone and a unique shape that provides a comfortable and secure fit. The HA-ENR15 includes an in-line remote control and microphone. The HA-ETX30 and HA-ETR40 Extreme Fitness headphones feature JVC’s Pivot Motion Fit, a soft rubber rotating hook that fits within the part of the ear just above the ear canal to provide an ultra-secure yet comfortable fit. To tailor the fit to each user, the hook rotates and its position can easily be adjusted while wearing the earpiece. Both headphones are waterproof, and the HA-ETR40 includes an in-line remote and microphone.
