The manufacturer JBL is introducing five new mobile Bluetooth speakers for outdoor use. They differ mainly in terms of size, driver equipment and battery life, one even has interactive features on board.
JBL clip 4
This waterproof Bluetooth mini speaker is extremely compact and light (240 grams). Its battery life is ten hours and its snap hook allows it to be attached to a belt or backpack. It costs 59.99 euros.
JBL Charge 5
The JBL Charge 5 is available in nine different colors and is waterproof and dustproof according to the IP67 standard. It is equipped with a bass-midrange driver and a tweeter as well as two passive bass radiators and weighs just under 1 kilogram. Its battery life is a maximum of 20 hours – the built-in power bank can also be used to charge other devices. The integrated PartyBoost function allows multiple speakers to be coupled. Its price: 179 euros.
JBL Xtreme 3
Four drivers, two bass radiators, 15 hours of playback time, two kilograms of weight. This loudspeaker is intended for the more power-hungry listener. A particularly practical gimmick: Its shoulder strap has an integrated bottle opener, nobody is left dry here. Price: 299 euros
JBL PartyBox On-The-Go
This loudspeaker plays a powerful role – with a 5.25-inch woofer and two 1.75-inch tweeters. But it can also become an interactive party machine: There is not only a light display with a light organ function, you can also use the wireless microphone supplied or plug a guitar into the instrument input – so jamming is allowed. This box offers six hours of battery life and splash protection according to IPX4 for a price of 299 euros.
JBL Boombox 2
The top model and, according to JBL, the “loudest JBL boombox ever”. This almost six kilos heavy chunk is not only equipped with powerful drivers and amplifiers, the battery life of up to 24 hours also proves endurance. The Boombox 2 can be supplied with music via Bluetooth, but it also has a stereo jack input for connecting an external high-level source. Your price: 499 euros
