Famed for their legendary upbeat sound and tough construction, the JBL Control One speakers are a true classic.

Rugged design for flexible placement

Tough and rugged cabinets make these speakers ideal for commercial and harsher environments. Unlike wooden speakers, these polypropylene moulded speakers won’t rot, crack or deteriorate, making them ideal for use in pool areas, bathrooms, kitchens, conservatories and commercial applications. Rounded edges with protective ‘bumpers’ protect both speakers and surroundings.

Powerful sound
JBL have a long history of producing punchy studio monitors and the Control 1 speakers reflect that sound tradition. Titanium-laminate tweeters matched to 100mm woofers provide a bright, forward sound that is ideal for cutting through background noise, again making these speakers ideal for commercial use in bars, cafes and shops.

Magnetic shielding
Magnetic shielding means that these speakers can safely be used at close range to magnetically vulnerable areas. If you have precious reel-to-reel, cassette, video or other taped media, these speakers can safely be placed alongside. The shielding also protects against picture distortion on older CRT TVs and display systems.

Wall-mounts included
Supplied with flexible wall-mounts, the Control Ones can be mounted high up and out of the way but also angled downwards to direct the sound. Flexible ball joints give a wide range of directionality. Safety wires, in case of mount failure, are also supplied.

A legendary speaker that’s available at a competition-busting price, thanks to your friends at Richer Sounds!

I picked these up in RS a few weeks ago, didn’t need any code.

I think if you click "Buy Online" that should work
What's the sound like?

I bought these a few weeks ago for £49 as well. I didn't like them at all, weak bass, no punch.
If you want an excellent speaker at a low price, buy the "Q Acoustic 3010" (£99), they are superior in every way.

These are studio monitor speakers so should give a faithful representation of the sound. If you want ones that are tuned to listening in a warmer bassier fashion these aren't your lads.

They're rated 80Hz-20kHz so being really faithful when a chunk of the bottom end is cut isn't ideal. If you're buying monitors stretch a bit further for a fuller sound.

Yeah I used to own these years ago and they have no bottom end and a weird throaty tone (presumably due to being plastic). I see them more as satellites to use with a sub in an AV setup rather than bookshelf speakers.
The control one pros are amazing so even if these are similar, well worth the price

What sort of studio is going to have speakers this cheap?

It says in this What Hifi page they are "personal monitors". whathifi.com/jbl…iew

Good speakers for the price, votes hot. you can almost always find them at one of the retailers who stock them for this price.

Have you heard them yourself ? It says in the description from jbl ‘provide a bright, forward sound that is ideal for cutting through background noise, again making these speakers ideal for commercial use in bars, cafes and shops’. Doesn’t sound like they’ll be representative of the sound at all?

They've obviously changed the Control range then. Used to be the control 1 (and obviously not now One) were pretty faithful.
are these good for movies 5.1 ?

Yes, of course. It adds the speaker to basket.

If that isn't working for you, perhaps try another browser?

It doesn’t do anything, could be because I’m on mobile. Just making the point that it’s not necessarily people being thick!

These have been around for a very long time, I used to have these setup as DJ monitors in a home studio over a number of years and I worked professionally in that field at the time, no complaints from me.
