LAS VEGAS – January 5, 2015 – JVC Mobile is presenting its 2015 product line at International CES, January 6-9. Booth No. 1711 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center highlights 21 new products that incorporate the latest technology and convenience benefits to create a more entertaining driving experience. Sixteen new in-dash receivers, four speakers and a subwoofer amplifier bolster an already impressive lineup of more than 60 products built to perform at any price point.
All of the new receivers replace 2014 models with tasteful, stylish design and improved ergonomics. “We wanted to simplify interaction with our receivers to allow a safer and more intuitive touch experience with each unit,” said Daniel Jones, product and marketing manager for the company’s car electronics sector. “With vehicle dashboards becoming more complex as safety and driver information features take up space and focus, we wanted to create a great-looking display and control surface that minimizes distraction.”
LAS VEGAS – January 8, 2015 – JVC Mobile brought a fresh series of speakers and subwoofer-handling power to its booth at International CES, Jan 6-9. The HX series, which consists of 4 models, gives consumers a high-quality, factory replacement solution. The new KS-AX201 amplifier builds on proven technology to create affordable low-frequency power.
Designed to supplant most factory speakers as well as fit custom locations, the HX series drops into standard-sized openings to improve low-end performance and voice clarity. Each driver features a carbon mica cone that responds accurately to lower frequencies thanks to its lightness and flexibility. The midrange is bolstered by a pulp cone with fixed surround, and all speakers include Polyetherimide tweeters for high strength and temperature tolerance. The entire speaker is anchored by a highly responsive single-roll rubber surround.
LONG BEACH, CALIF. – October 20, 2014 – JVC Mobile, worldwide provider of innovative and value-driven car entertainment products, announced it is shipping four in-dash receivers from its anticipated 20 new-for-2015 products. The immediate availability of two multimedia centers and a pair of CD receivers gives retailers and consumers the latest technology and smartphone integration in time for the holiday season.
As next-generation models of the current KW-V10 and KW-V20BT receivers, the new KW-V11 (MSRP $299.95) and KW-V21BT (MSRP $349.95) double-DIN units feature a stylish, symmetrical design that accommodates a larger, 6.2-inch WVGA touch screen. A fully reimagined touch panel allows users to place their favorite function tiles on the screen for a customized control experience. The screen also includes Monitor Touch Control, so users can adjust volume by performing a circular motion on screen and select media by swiping up/down or left/right with their finger. Additionally, each receiver can be controlled with factory-equipped steering wheel buttons using a third-party adapter, or with the optional RM-RK258 wireless remote control.
LONG BEACH, CALIF. – December 23, 2014 – JVC Mobile invites new and prospective retailers, as well as industry media, to visit its product showcase at the 2015 International CES, January 6-9. The renowned producer of high-quality, value-conscious electronics for the automotive aftermarket will showcase its 2015 product line in Booth 1711 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We anticipate an exciting year for the JVC Mobile brand,” said Daniel Jones, product and marketing manager for the company’s car electronics sector. “With more than 20 new products adding to our extensive lineup in 2015 and a stronger focus on building our brand within the specialist retail community, our goal is to exceed the expectations of our retail network while making new dealers and consumers take a fresh look at JVC Mobile.”
LAS VEGAS – January 7, 2015 – Most new vehicles come from the factory with built-in Bluetooth, satellite radio, input jacks for portable devices, and direct USB connections for iPhone or memory stick integration. Drivers who want to keep their older vehicles and get this new technology now have a cost-effective solution in JVC Mobile’s new KD-R960BTS CD receiver.
“Statistics show that people are keeping their cars longer on average, and are willing to upgrade them rather than part with them for newer vehicles,” said Daniel Jones, product and marketing manager for JVC Mobile. “The KD-R960BTS is the perfect solution for consumers who want to make their older vehicles new again with the same features that come standard from the dealership lot.”
LAS VEGAS – January 6, 2015 – JVC Mobile debuted the flagship of its five new-for-2015 multimedia receivers at the 2015 International CES. The KW-V51BT meets consumer need for a high-quality, touch-enabled unit that can be the center of entertainment for built-in and connected media.
“The KW-V51BT shows that you can have a truly connected system that takes the focus off the smartphone and delivers complete media access through the receiver,” said Daniel Jones, product and marketing manager for JVC Mobile. “The improvements of this year’s model keep up with changing technology and give our customers a quality multimedia experience.”
LONG BEACH, CA – March 12, 2015 – JVC Mobile, worldwide provider of quality audio systems and components, announced it is shipping its flagship marine / motorsports CD receiver, which was introduced at the 2015 International CES. With the availability of the KD-R85MBS, retailers and consumers now have a complete array of choices when looking for great sound on the water or off-road: two receivers, multiple media connectivity options, system expansion capability, and both wired and wireless remote control.
Like the currently shipping KD-X31MBS, the KD-R85MBS (MSRP $149.95) is ready for the elements with a conformal-coated circuit board and rust-resistant components. It differs from the current model with the addition of a backlit LCD display for enhanced night viewing. Also new is a built-in CD player and three sets of RCA pre-amplified outputs to connect to add-on front, rear and subwoofer amplifiers. Each output is rated at 4.8 volts to provide a high-efficiency signal to the amplifier.
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.
