JBL enters the Guinness Book of World Records by playing the most number of Bluetooth speakers simultaneously from a single media source, a record once held by Ultimate Ears in 2016.
The Harman International Industries audio brand successfully played 1,000 JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Speakers besting Ultimate Ears record of 208 speakers.
Taking place at an exclusive event in London’s Village Underground on the 25th April, together with telecommunications service provider O2 – the record was witnessed by over 200 guests including world-renowned Dutch DJs, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano.
