Advisory to consumers: Easy ways to identify a counterfeit JBL product

  1. Like many premium goods, HARMAN’s products are being counterfeited and sold, usually at drastically reduced prices and diminished quality. Genuine JBL and Infinity products are made with high-quality materials and designed to deliver a one-of-a-kind listening experience.

  2. The cosmetic details are not consistent with authentic JBL and Infinity products.

  3. Inspect the packaging and logo placement/colour. Typically, the packaging is made of flimsy material, missing key details such as certifications, place of manufacture, address, and trademark/copyright information. Logo placement is slightly off and the colour does not match the genuine logo.

  4. The package/product may be lightweight, smell of chemicals, or have chipped paint.

  5. Research reputation of the seller. Read customer comments.

To identify an authorised seller, always look for an authorised retailer/dealer certificate.
