JBL Boombox review

 

JBL gets real loud with this ode to retro boomboxes

Really loud and balanced sound Water-resistant + splash-proof 24-hour battery life

It’s pricey No audio cables included Buzzing sound at low battery

The JBL Boombox is a monstrous portable speaker that not only gets loud, but stays pretty crisp when pumping the volume. It’s heavy, and not the easiest thing to carry around, but it’s rugged enough to handle any pool or tailgate party

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 review

 

Bombastic bass response ; Good outdoor performance ; Waterproof ; Charges two devices at once ; 24-hour battery life

A little heavy for backpacking or camping ; Poor clarity in treble register ; Limited EQ control

The Boombox didn’t blow us away with crisp clarity, but it doesn’t really need to. It’s sturdy, stylish, big enough to power a party for hours, and it can charge two phones at once. If you’re in search of some jams for your picnic, camping trip, beach...

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: JBL puts the "boom" back in boombox

 

We've reviewed a few JBL speakers in the past, including a personal favourite — the JBL Xtreme. It turns out that JBL has one-upped the size of that one and our JBL Boombox review takes a look at one of the larger portable Bluetooth speakers you'll see.
