In a world of boring shelf speakers that are as fascinating as the wires that connect them, the JBL Encounter draws people towards it with its innovative tongue in cheek design and then lavishes them with deep warm sound.

Where most speakers seem to be designed to be hidden, the Encounter defies you to ignore them.
