JBL has been a trusted name in audio components for more than 90 years. Based in Los Angeles, they are the company that Hollywood turned to in the 1930s when they needed high-quality speakers for their movie theaters at the advent of sound film.
Today, JBL is recognized as one of the top manufacturers of Bluetooth speakers. You can count on JBL Bluetooth speakers when you are looking for high-end portable audio at an affordable price.
Top 5 JBL Bluetooth Speakers
1. JBL Charge 3
This JBL Bluetooth speaker can connect wirelessly to as many as 3 phones or tablets at the same time and play music between them. It comes with a 6,000mAH Li-ion battery that not only provides 20 hours of continuous playing but can also charge your devices through a USB port. What’s more, the speaker is resistant to both rain and spills, and you can even submerge it in water. It further includes a speakerphone with Siri and Google Now voice assistant integration.
2. JBL Flip 5
The latest version of JBL’s popular line of Bluetooth speakers has been redesigned to deliver high output and a booming bass while maintaining its compact size. The speaker comes in 11 colors and you can submerge it in up to one meter (3 feet) of water. While it is small and light enough to slip onto your wrist, it still provides 12 hours of playing. It is further PartyBoost compatible, which means that you can pair it with another JBL Bluetooth speaker to create true stereo sound. You can also link it with multiple speakers to really crank up the volume.
3. JBL Xtreme 2
JBL calls this waterproof Bluetooth speaker “xtreme” for a good reason. It includes 4 drivers, a pair of JBL Bass Radiators and a 10,000Ah Li-ion battery that provides 15 hours of playing. It also includes a carrying strap, USB output and a bottle opener. Together with JBL Connect+, you can link this speaker with up to 100 others for even more “xtremeness.” Finally, it is light enough to travel with but powerful enough to use at home.
With the JBL PartyBox 300, you can bring the party with you wherever you go. Its 10,000Ah Li-ion battery provides 18 hours of playing, and you can also connect it to your vehicle’s 12V DC socket. This speaker not only provides an immersive audio experience but also has 3 light show modes, and it is so versatile that you can plug in microphones and guitars. It further includes USB playback, which lets you preprogram a playlist created on a thumb drive, and you can connect it to other speakers either wirelessly or over an RCA cable.
5. JBL Go 2
This noise-canceling JBL Bluetooth speaker is proof that good things do indeed come in small packages. Tiny enough to fit in your hand, the speaker lets you stream music from your phone or tablet for 5 hours. It is also fully waterproof, can function as a speakerphone and, if for some reason Bluetooth is unavailable, you can connect your device to it through an audio cable. As an added benefit, it comes in 12 different colors.
