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."
