These devices use Bluetooth connectivity and supports Google Assistant, which will require the Assistant app. That's in addition to the Google Assistant, which lets you control volume, get access to meetings and events, and start music by saying commands like, "Hey Google, tell me about my day" or "Hey Google, play pop music". Additionally, a quick recharge feature enables users to quickly juice up the battery to maximum capacity.

The standard Google Assistant voice controls are in full effect here, so if you prefer Google's digital assistant over the alternative options out there, the JBL Everest headphones might be worth a look.

Aside from this, JBL also announced a refresh of its Bluetooth speaker line, with new updates being the JBL Xtreme 2, the JBL Clip 3, and the JBL Go 2. It is available in Gunmetal Silver, Mountain Silver, and Steel Blue, and the batteries should last about eight hours. Its FlipHook design provides flexibility to wear both in-ear and behind-the-ear.

The JBL Endurance Jump has a durable neckband for secure fit and PowerHook buds that turn on and instantly connect when users wear them, and turn off when users take them off to ensure athletes can focus on every push-up, pull-up or squat.

Garvey says, "Combining our award-winning patented ergonomics with technology that withstands the most intense athletic performance, JBL Endurance earphones offer a range of solutions that can work with any athlete's routine". And for buyers on a budget there's the JBL GO 2.

Wi-Fi Alliance Announces WPA3 Protocol With New Security Features
The third and fourth features are related to encryption capabilities included in WiFi WPA3. Public, open Wi-Fi networks have also been a pain point in security.

As previously mentioned, there are three models.

All three headphones will be available this spring online and in select retailers. So, we can expect such more new smart headphones in future as like the smart speakers. The Clip 3 has echo and noise-canceling, meaning this speaker can be used to make decent calls while paired to a phone.

The only Harman Kardon-branded device introduced earlier today is an obvious continuation of the $250 Amazon Alexa-powered Allure speaker announced back at IFA 2017.

All mentioned products will be available in Autumn.
