The JBL 104-BT compact reference monitors with Bluetooth, the newest model in the 1 Series line, draws from seven decades of JBL Professional engineering to deliver the truest, most accurate sound in their class. They're perfect for recording musicians, producers, podcasters and vloggers, as well as professional audio engineers seeking an accurate portable reference with Bluetooth streaming. The monitors feature sleek, elegant designs with compact form factors, making stunning statements in any studio while conserving valuable work space. Creative professionals, music lovers and anyone who wants the flexibility to stream both wired and wireless sound into high-quality studio monitors can count on JBL 104-BT to provide an accurate, reliable sonic reference and a truly enjoyable listening experience.

Trust the Transparency
Great mixes start with honest mix references. With JBL 104-BT, you’ll hear the content you’ve created in true clarity and detail, with none of the coloration that can compromise your mix decisions. 104-BTs are optimized for desktop placement, and their smooth off-axis response means you can reference your mixes confidently across a wide sweet spot.

Pro Performance, Scaled to Size
The world’s top recording studios and touring artists rely on JBL Professional monitors to deliver unparalleled fidelity and performance. With the 1 Series, JBL has optimized that technology in their smallest form factor ever. The 104-BT Reference Monitor’s innovative coaxial driver design features a high-frequency driver aligned with a woofer cone precisely contoured to deliver accurate response, exceptional detail and impressive off-axis performance. The result: neutral, accurate sound, anywhere. The cabinet’s precisely contoured low frequency port works with the driver to deliver powerful, tight bass at any volume level.

The Bluetooth Advantage
The 104-BT offers the convenience of Bluetooth streaming, which gives audio engineers the ability to check their mixes over Bluetooth to ensure they translate well to common listening scenarios.

Streamline Your Sessions
JBL 104-BT Reference Monitors integrate smoothly into any production workspace, thanks to smart features like a front-panel input control that selects Bluetooth, AUX, RCA, TRS or combines all inputs—quickly check references or switch easily between tasks like playing back your tracks and staying attentive to phone notifications. Or, select all inputs for a simplified experience. Front-panel volume control allows convenient level adjustments without straying from the sweet spot, and a front-panel headphone jack automatically mutes the speakers, giving you isolation in one simple step. And, JBL 104-BT Reference Monitors’ dual 1/4" balanced, dual RCA and single 1/8" inputs accommodate a wide range of signal sources.
