If you’re ever into connected Audio devices, you probably came across this brand at least once in your life. Here at Ungeek, we’ve come across a barrage of Bluetooth speakers 80% of which are from JBL.
Smartphone companies partner with them like crazy as part of their routine giveaways during pre-order sales, spot promotions, and seasonal giveaways. It’s a staple in a lot of tech shops and there’s a reason why.
Aside from offering reliable quality, JBL is a brand that isn’t out to suck your bank account dry. That being said, I’ve never really paid much attention to their wireless headset and in-ear devices until now.
Last July 17, JBL and Harman showcased a whole slew of fun wireless devices that they’re offering in the Philippines. The highlight of the event is the JBL PartyBox 1000 and JBL PartyBox 100 taking the party and home audio system to a whole new level.
The JBL PartyBox 1000 in particularly is aimed towards music creators and home party specialists as the massive speaker not only gives big sounds but it ensures bigger entertainment with its pulsating LED-equipped facade that can sync to the beat of your music. It becomes the perfect visual and audio centerpiece of the home party you’re throwing.
With the thrust of JBL to go truly wireless, both the 1000 and 100 PartyBoxes have Bluetooth connectivity. Both models also have USB and 3.5mm aux input, quarter-inc mics and instrument inputs if you want to do a quick jam session as well. Linking two PartyBoxes can be linked wirelessly as well allowing you to truly fill the space with your thumping beats.
You can count the PartyBox 1000 as part of the Drop-Your-Beat DJ Starter pack as well as this massive unit comes with extra inputs, controls, effects for karaoke and an integrated 4×4 launchpad. They even have an air gesture wristband so you can man the control from a distance. D-d-d-drop some beats, yo!
If you’re not into the party scene and prefer to have your audio experience savored on your own personal space, JBL launches their JBL Tune 120TWS wireless Bluetooth in-ear devices.
These audio gems lets you listen to music, take calls, and workout without the need to worry about tangled wires.
The JBL Tune 120TWS promises 4 hours of continuous playtime, and an extra 12 hours of playtime rady via its charging case. 15 mins of charge gives you approximately 1 hour of audio runtime and a full charge take only two hours. This Php 5,999 wireless in-ear device can also connect to Google Assistant and Siri for a truly hands-free experience.
If you’re looking for something to suit your active lifestlye, JBL has also partnered with Under Armour to create 3 active-wear in-ear devices. Of the three, its the JBL Under Armour True Wireless Flash that caught my attention. Giving you the ability to regulate sound levels to your suiting. They call this Bionic Hearing and allows you to hear your surrounding with two the Talk Thru and Ambient Aware technologies. With Talk Thru, music is lowered while speech sound is amplified so you can talk with anyone without the need to take the in-ears out or pause your music. Ambient Aware allows you to hear ambient sounds without distorting your music-listening experience providing you extra safety especially when you decide to take a run on the road.
The JBL PartyBox 1000 retails at Php 57,900 and will be available by late July while the JBL PartyBox 100 retails at Php 18,999 and will be available sometime in August. The JBL Tune 120TWS retails for Php 5,999 and the JBL Under Armour True Wireless Flash retails at Php 9,999 and both units are available now from JBL concept stores and dealers.
