JBL have released three new Bluetooth speaker ranges into the Australian market with prices starting below $50 sure to attract some attention.
The Go, Clip and Xtreme series for 2018 are enhances with new design paired with the classic JBL sound.
JBL Go 2
Designed to ensure the JBL brand is represented at all price points, the Go 2 is a pretty impressive speaker for its size, but it’s the IPX7 capabilities that appeal to most. It can take anything, including heading into the pool.
It comes in five colours, and also features noise cancelling speakerphone technology for better quality hands-free calling.
JBL Clip 3
Ever popular, the Clip 3 speaker takes the now familiar circle design and changes the actual clip. It should offer 10 hours of playback time and the sound will not disappoint given its small size.
Once again fully waterproof and featuring hands-free speakerphone and a range of colours, it’s a winner for all ages.
JBL Xtreme 2
At the upper end, and quite a hike given the jump to $349.95 as a price point is the booming sound of the Xtreme 2. This guy has two JBL Bass Radiators, and app compatibility to ensure you get the sound you want and can even pair more of them together.
You won’t need the full 15 hour playback time, so there are USB ports to charge you phone and a carrying strap and bottle opener built-in.
Marcus Fry of JBL in Australia says “Our Bluetooth range of speakers keep getting better and better, all for the same price. Fashion colours, durability, portability and JBL sound make this new range the perfect music companion, no matter the activity”
