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.

Huge, balanced sound ; Plenty of bass ; Fantastic battery life ; IPX7 rated ; Solidly built speaker ; Can charge other devices from it ; Indoor/outdoor mode ; App for settings control ; Voice assistant compatible ; Can connect over 100 speakers together

On the pricey side ; Long time to recharge ; No previous track button

JBL Boombox portable Bluetooth speaker review

 

Within the last couple of years, I've gotten to review some big (in size and sound) Bluetooth speakers. These massive new generation boomboxes have replaced the old cassette and CD driven monsters from the 80s with better sound and much better ease of...

Solid build Powerful, but tamed bass Comfortable to carry Can withstand outdoor elements

Expensive Lackluster speakerphone Harsh treble at higher volumes with some music

The Boombox is bigger, louder and sounds better than most other portable Bluetooth speakers—at a price. Can it replace a standard stereo speaker setup? Not unless you buy two and use them in stereo mode (which you can!). The Boombox is expensive, but...

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: Portable, powerful and very bassy

 

A thunderous outdoor Bluetooth speaker with stupendous bass

Thunderous bass ; IPX7 waterproofing ; Charges devices via USB

Expensive ; Average sound quality at this price ; Heavy

The JBL Boombox is far from the perfect Bluetooth speaker, but for many it will serve a purpose. It’s loud enough to fill a large room with party-scale audio and will also thump out the tracks outdoors. With the ability to link other JBL speakers...

At Rs 27,999, JBL BoomBox is an interesting portable Bluetooth speaker and yes, it even comes with a 20,000mAh rechargeable battery.
