JBL Boombox


The outdoor-friendly JBL Boombox delivers thunderous bass balanced with solid high frequency presence in a nostalgic design.

Exceptionally powerful audio performance with booming bass and crisp highs. Portable despite its power. Waterproof.

Expensive. App lacks EQ. Not for purists seeking flat response-style sound signature.

If the bass boosting sounds like it might be too full for you, there are Bluetooth speakers that still deliver solid low frequency presence in this price range (and lower), but don't necessarily sound like they're packing a subwoofer. The B&O Play...

JBL Boombox review: The best Bluetooth speaker for bass


A thunderous outdoor Bluetooth speaker with stupendous bass

Thunderous bass ; IPX7 waterproofing ; Charges devices via USB

Expensive ; Average sound quality at this price ; Heavy

However, it’s not accurate sounding as rivals, lacks 360-degree sound, doesn’t support aptX and is also rather expensive. Plus, if you don’t need the volume the Boombox, there are plenty of better-sounding rivals. Those looking for an all-weatherproof...

JBL Boombox


Here's a seriously lively loudspeaker – its 20,000mAh battery is punchy enough to power a party for over 20 hours non-stop. Indeed, the Boombox keeps going come rain or shine, thanks to its IPX7 waterproof certification – and the indoor and outdoor...

JBL Boombox


Tross sin relativt lille størrelse har JBL Boombox en stor lyd med skikkelig bassgjengivelse.

JBL har tatt essensen fra gamle dagers boomboks og gjort den beste moderne versjonen av den. Størrelsen er passe, designen er moderne, og den er tilstrekkelig lett til at man faktisk skal kunne bære rundt på den. Den har dessuten et batteri som holder...

JBL Boombox: Een echte partymaker


De JBL Boombox is een krachtige allround draadloze luidspreker. Of je nu dansleraar bent of gewoon een feestje met je vrienden wil maken, deze luidspreker laat je niet staan. Lange speeltijd, grote accu, nog veel groter geluid. Een ware partymaker,...

Accuduur Waterdicht Opladen via USB Kan heel hard Eenvoudig te gebruiken Donderende bas Twee powerbanks Toch spatzuiver Vuilafstotend Goede outdoorprestaties

Zwaar Prijzig Geen handsfree functie Mist aptX ondersteuning, maar dat is een detail Slechte duidelijkheid in treble register Beperkte EQ-controle Gemiddelde geluidskwaliteit voor deze prijs

Small speaker, big boom


Trots sin relativt lilla storlek har JBL Boombox ett stort ljud med rejäl basåtergivning.

Great Sound, solid construction


Really good sound. Deep bass. I think now is the best portable Bluetooth device to make a noise party with true sound. But unfortunately The device was not equipped with a portable charging of a 12v or 24v car cigarette lighter socket. detriment

simply the best


To put this simply, I couldn't expect any more, this is a great piece of kit for indoor and outdoor use ( outdoors is superb I have to say, the quality is second to none ) although this isn't the cheapest product on the market, in my opinion it was...
