Conceptualised by Havas Creative, the digital film showcases the convenience and the power to stay original and unique. JBL Wave 100 TWS comes with a topless design. The unique topless design is a Red Dot Award winner with no edges and a free-flowing finish – similar to the waves of an ocean!
The Wave 100 TWS is the perfect companion, as it comes with a powerful 20-hour battery life and Dual EQ, two JBL distinctive sound styles for your various moods. With the touch of a bud, you can choose between two sound modes and control your device's voice assistant.
Yogesh Nambiar, Head of Marketing at Harman India, said, “When it comes to making new inroads into a product segment with cut-throat competition, the choices a brand makes are crucial to the outcome. With this year’s launch of the JBL Wave 100 TWS, we have taken the top down approach, quite literally. It features our first ever lidless design in the TWS segment coupled with yet another first, offering two distinct sound modes. We adopted an unprecedented route with the tagline ‘JBL Goes Topless’. Needless to say, we are thoroughly excited about the campaign and expect to make waves in the category. We hope music lovers will pop it, fit it, and groove with it.”
The film depicts a protagonist who uniquely uses the JBL Wave 100 TWS, displaying the coolest moves in the form of waves. The product's uber-cool topless design and easy-to-use features are showcased through the Pop & Lock dance form— popping it out of the case, fitting it in the ears, and grooving to different sound modes. So, Pop It. Fit It. Groove It. Because there’s no stopping with the new Wave 100 TWS #JBLGoesTopless.
