JBL Boombox review: The best Bluetooth speaker for bass


A thunderous outdoor Bluetooth speaker with stupendous bass

Thunderous bass ; IPX7 waterproofing ; Charges devices via USB

Expensive ; Average sound quality at this price ; Heavy

However, it’s not accurate sounding as rivals, lacks 360-degree sound, doesn’t support aptX and is also rather expensive. Plus, if you don’t need the volume the Boombox, there are plenty of better-sounding rivals. Those looking for an all-weatherproof...

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...

Great Sound, solid construction


Really good sound. Deep bass. I think now is the best portable Bluetooth device to make a noise party with true sound. But unfortunately The device was not equipped with a portable charging of a 12v or 24v car cigarette lighter socket. detriment

Still the best


I've had this for around half a year and everything is still good, apart for the button where you can change between the outdoor and indoor modes. I know that no damage was done it it but it has just completely stopped working.

Fantastic product!!!!


I've owned this for a few weeks now and am completely blown away by both the build and sound quality. I would highly recommend the Boombox to anyone looking for a decent portable speaker. The bass is great and the high and mid separation is very...

JBL have done it again


I have been a fan of JBL for many years and have previously owned a Flip. I now have a Charge 2, Charge 3, Xtreme and a Cinema SB400. The BOOMBOX is an extremely good Speaker. The bass is pronounced and as good as I've heard. It's very loud and the...

Great sound quality


First view of the box you see how big this really is. When you take it out it's still big and quite heavy. The build quality is substantial and the weight is reassuring rather than worrying. As soon as you connect to your tablet via Bluetooth you hear...
