JBL Boombox review: specs and price

The JBL Boombox speaker is one of the most powerful Bluetooth speakers currently on the market, with four active transducers and two JBL bass radiators that deliver major sound with heart-pounding bass. If that’s not enough, though, it can also connect to over 100 JBL Connect+ enabled speakers for even more sound and power. Multipoint is included, too, allowing you to connect to several devices at a time so that you and your friends can take turns being the music DJ.

This portable Bluetooth speaker has a tough exterior to guard against accidental bumps and drops, making it ideal for the outdoors. You needn’t worry about accidental water damage either, as it has an IPX7 waterproof rating that protects it from the rain or even being completely submerged in water. Its built-in rechargeable battery supports up to 24 hours of straight playtime, so it is perfect for scenic all-day jam sessions. It even has a unique outdoor sound mode that will increase the range of the music being played and pump up the bass to impressive volumes.

Design

1.Ingress Protection (IP) rating

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.
2.volume

24628.6cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
8.has a touch screen
JBL Boombox
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.

Sound quality

1.has stereo speakers
JBL Boombox
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a subwoofer
JBL Boombox
Devices with a subwoofer have a higher quality, deeper bass.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Audio output power is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts. High audio output power results in loud, clear sounds.
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
7.number of microphones

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
Signal-to-noise ratio is a measure that compares the level of a desired signal (meaningful information) to the level of background noise (unwanted signal), the bigger the less perceived noise.

Power

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
The time it takes to fully charge the battery.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
It supports a wireless charging standard such as Qi. To charge the device, you simply put it down on a compatible charging pad.
8.operating power consumption

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
9.annual power consumption

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.

Connectivity

Multipoint allows you to link to more Bluetooth devices and switch between them. For example you can easily switch calls from one device to another without having to manually disconnect and reconnect.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Device supports fast Bluetooth pairing using NFC so it can communicate with other devices over Bluetooth. You can fastly pair devices without entering a code by simply holding one device next to the device with which it is to be paired.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
5.has an AUX input
JBL Boombox
An auxiliary input allows you to play other audio sources by connecting them through a simple audio connection like a 3.5mm jack, i.e for MP3 or portable DVD/CD player.
6.has LDAC
JBL Boombox
LDAC is a codec developed by Sony for Bluetooth audio. It is capable of a very high bitrate of 990kbps, which provides high resolution audio. It can also automatically adjust to a lower bitrate of 330kbps or 660kbps to increase stability.
7.has aptX Adaptive
JBL Boombox
aptx Adaptive is an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that is developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps), which means it can adjust the bit rate for different scenarios, such as listening to HD audio or reducing interference from other devices.
8.has aptX HD
JBL Boombox
aptX HD is an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that is developed by Qualcomm. It supports high quality 24-bit audio (at a bit rate of 576kbps).
9.Has Bluetooth aptX
JBL Boombox
aptX is a codec used for transmitting audio wirelessly with Bluetooth. It is developed by Qualcomm, and supports 16-bit audio at a bit rate of 384kbps.
