The American manufacturer announces, shortly before the opening of the CES show in Las Vegas 2024, its latest party speakers, the PartyBox Club 120 and PartyBox Stage 320.
JBL PartyBox, specifications
We still know little about the technical characteristics of these speakers. We can just announce the Bluetooth 5.3 Auracast function to enjoy musical content stored on a suitable mobile device (smartphone, tablet, computer, portable game console, etc.). Namely, the Auracast function allows easy stereo or multiroom/multi-speaker pairing and almost unlimited number. Thus, it is possible to combine two or more JBL PartyBox speakers to increase the sound volume tenfold.
JBL PartyBox Club 120, autonomy and ergonomics
The JBL PartyBox Club 120 offers a sound and light show, synchronized to music of course, and 12 hours of battery life. The latter can be extended at will through one of the main new features of these 2024 vintage speakers, the possibility of replacing the battery. Precisely, the JBL PartyBox Club 120 has two microphone inputs and a guitar input. And compatibility is ensured with the JBL PartyBox application.
JBL PartyBox Stage 320, autonomy and ergonomics
The JBL PartyBox Stage 320, more powerful thanks to its two woofers and two tweeters, also offers a sound and light show synchronized to the music. Its autonomy displays 18 hours and it is also possible to extend it by replacing the battery, a new feature for JBL in 2024. Namely, the FastCharge function of the JBL PartyBox Stage 320 speaker allows 2 hours of additional autonomy for only 10 minutes of charging. And its telescopic handle and wide wheels make it easy to take with you to add sound to any space. Of course, microphone and guitar inputs, not to mention compatibility with the JBL PartyBox application, are assured.
Micro JBL PartyBox
The new JBL PartyBox wireless microphone, with around twenty hours of battery life, minimizes all unwanted handling and breathing noises thanks to its shockproof mounting system. And its cardoid diagram guarantees maximum vocal quality.
