JBL Spark: A unique Bluetooth speaker

 

Designed to be mounted like a hanging lamp, the megaphone-shaped Spark is one funky-looking wireless speaker.

JBL Spark Review; Cutie colorful and wireless but wired

 

Since there is no battery that will be drained, therefore no consumable to be replaced once it becomes really old. I would buy JBL Spark not because it is expensive at almost P6k, but because I am satisfied with the sound quality. It is not noisy and I...

Colors are youthful; Awesome sound; Portable

Pricey; No remote control

JBL Spark Wireless Speaker Review

 

It would be fair to say that JBL's Spark falls under the desktop speaker category as it isn't portable nor does it have a built-in rechargeable battery which limits it to a wired wall power source like virtually all proper desktop stereo speakers.

The Spark is practically a Bluetooth speaker in a category of its own, we think it's unique enough and fairly priced to merit a mid-level good rating.

Unusual JBL Spark Bluetooth speaker sounds as good as it looks [REVIEW]

 

If you want to listen to your tunes on a high-quality, loud Bluetooth speaker with accurate sound reproduction — and make a fashion statement at the same time — the $129.95 JBL Spark is worth a close look and listen.

Review: JBL Spark Wireless Speaker

 

That said, I understand that I am likely one of about 100 Canadians that doesn't have an outlet in their bathroom, but it brings up a valid question – when you want a wireless speaker, why choose one that needs to be plugged in?

The JBL Spark is a very funky looking speaker that is sure to “spark” conversation, and has above average sound quality, as can be expected from JBL.

By far, the biggest con with the JBL Spark is that it is not a “wireless” speaker in the true sense of the word. It must be plugged in at all times, which has serious limitations for those who really want something that is portable.
