If you’re in the market for a large portable speaker you’ll might be looking into popular options like the Sony XB41 or the JBL Xtreme 2… or you could be looking into the LG PK7 which essentially is a mash up between the XB41 and the Xtreme 2. You get a light feature and a speaker set up similar to the Xtreme 2. So lets see which of these speakers is worth your money.
On paper the LG PK7 sounds like the complete package, its a large portable speaker with dual passive radiators, dual transducers, and dual tweeters with “meridian audio technology”. It even has a built in light feature and it somehow won a reddot design award. The LG PK7 is basically a mash up between the JBL Xtreme 2 and the Sony XB41… But this speaker performs as good as it looks.
When I first reviewed the UE Megablast a few months ago I didn’t like it at all. It had a whole bunch of missing features, it relied way too much on voice commands, and it just didn’t sound good. The megablast had way too much bass and no mids. But I decided to give the Megablast a second chance. And even though it still has its problems… it actually sounds really good now. So good in fact that I feel its actually up there with the JBL Xtreme 2 with a form factor smaller than the Sony XB41.
I've always liked the Bose Soundlink Micro, but I must admit that it is expensive for what it is. But now theres the JBL Clip 3, an ultra portable bluetooth speaker that I feel is a better bang for your buck then the Bose Soundlink Micro. The JBL Clip 3 doesn't sound as good as the Bose Soundlink Micro but the JBL Clip 3 has a much more useful battery life at a fraction of the price.
When ever I do a versus video I always take price into consideration… but not today. Today we’re going to compare the three most popular 360 degree speakers right now. We have one of my most favorite products, the JBL Pulse 3… the elegant Bose Soundlink Revolve Plus… and the somewhat improved UE Megablast. These 3 speakers don’t just look very different, they also have very different approaches to how they produce their 360 degree sound.
For the last few months Bose has been releasing innovative, but weird products… like their new sleep buds which are supposed to help you sleep better, and their wearable Soundwear companion speaker which is a $300 speaker you wear around your neck… I mean yeah it sound good but it is a pretty tough sell. But today we’re breaking down Bose’s portable speaker line up which I also feel is a little wired. We’ve got the Bose Soundlink Micro, The Soundlink Color 2, The Soundlink Revolve and the sound link Revolve Plus.
Today we’re going to break down JBL’s current portable speaker line up. Everything from the small and affordable but surprisingly useful Clip 3, the work horse that is the JBL Flip 4, the Old man Charge 3, the incredible looking Pulse 3, the versatile Xtreme 2 and the big daddy JBL Boombox. Lets find out which of these speakers is right for you.
Why Get the JBL Xtreme2 when for not that much more you can just upgrade to the JBL Boombox. And to that I say its kinds of like picking between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus... Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9 Plus. Sure there are some improvements when picking the JBL Boombox, but you also have to take into account size preference and what your needs are. And for some people they'll might be better off going with the JBL Xtreme 2. So if you need help deciding checkout this JBL Boombox Vs JBL Xtreme2 video.
