JBL is updating its entire catalog with three new Bluetooth speakers, five new wireless earbuds, and two updated PA-style PartyBox speakers. Along with a bold and fresh style, the latest products from JBL feature Bluetooth 5.1
There’s a lot to do here today, so let’s take things one by one. We’ll start with JBL’s updated Bluetooth speakers before we look at the new wireless earbuds and PA systems.
The new speakers Xtreme 3, Go 3 and Clip 4
Forget the boring brick-shaped bluetooth speakers of yesterday. JBL continues to stand out from the crowd with its elegant and colorful Bluetooth speakers. Aside from a bold new logo and fancy color schemes, the new generation of JBL Bluetooth speakers inherit a number of small quality of life improvements such as: B. Charging Bluetooth 5.1 and USB-C.
Let’s take a look at each new JBL bluetooth speaker:
- JBL Xtreme 3 ($ 350): The JBL flagship Bluetooth speaker now uses four drivers and bass radiators, plus Bluetooth 5.1 technology for improved sound quality, volume, and low-end clarity. The 15-hour battery, charging via USB-C and the improved IP67 water resistance make it the perfect candidate for pool parties or outdoor adventures.
- JBL Go 3 ($ 40): JBL’s smallest Bluetooth speaker now has a built-in keychain loop, IP67 water resistance, Bluetooth 5.1 technology, USB-C charging, and a decent 5 hour battery life. It’s a significant upgrade from the old JBL Go 2, which, next to the Go 3, already looks dated.
- JBL Clip 4 ($ 70): The compact JBL Clip 4 offers a battery life of 10 hours and an improved carabiner for improved portability. The new IP67 waterproofness, USB-C charging and Bluetooth 5.1 technology significantly improve the technical specifications of the aging JBL Clip 3.
JBL will launch its new Xtreme 3 and Go 3 Bluetooth speakers on the market in October 2020. The JBL clip will be available one month later, in November 2020.
