This is the all new Soundboks… and this is by far the biggest and most expensive bluetooth speaker I’ve ever reviewed on this channel. So thank you very much to Soundboks for sending this speaker out and lets see exactly what this beast can do cause there are some very notable and important upgrades from the Soundboks 2 that you’re definitely going to want to know about.
Sony, JBL and Ultimate Ears have all updated their $100 bluetooth speakers for summer 2019. We have the Sony XB22, JBL Flip 5, and UE Wonderboom 2. Even though they're all just speakers… they’re all still very different from one another. So if you’re thinking about picking any of these speakers up… lets see which ones right for you.
The new JBL Flip 5 is a mixed bag of emotions. There are some good things about it and some notable upgrades from the JBL Flip 4... But then there are some other things about it that just make you wonder but why. So if you're thinking about picking up the JBL Flip 5 here's how it stacks up against the JBL Flip 4 and the JBL Charge 4.
Since summer’s here, a lot of people might be looking into getting a speaker. But if you’re looking into getting a speaker to mainly use at your next cook out or entertain guests with… then you’ll probably be better off with a 360 degree speaker cause you’ll be able to blanket to a large area with music with out having to blast the volume. So today we’re going to look at 3 of my favorite multi-directional speakers. Theres the brand new Marshall Stockwell 2, the UE Megaboom 3, and the JBL Pulse 3.
Marshall’s new Stockwell 2 speaker is all new for Summer 2019… but this isn’t just a slight hardware refresh from the original Stockwell. The Stockwell 2 is now a multi directional speaker that shoots out your music out the front and out the back of the speaker. Making this speaker a great option if you’re someone who likes to entertain a lot of guests on a regular.
Sony has for the most part updated their portable speaker line up for summer 2019. We have the new Sony XB12, the Sony XB22 and the Sony XB32. But weirdly enough, sony hasn’t released an updated Sony XB42… instead the year old XB41 is still Sony’s largest portable bluetooth speaker that doesn’t have a built in voice assistant like the XB501G or the XB402M. So if you’re think about picking one of these speakers up for this summer, lets see which ones right for you.
This year at CES 2019, Sony announced their new Sony XB32 and XB22 speakers… But weirdly enough, they haven’t announced a new Sony XB42… instead they announced their new Sony XB12. Its a small single transducer speaker that has a new built in strap that’s small enough to take with you anywhere. But for 60 bucks… I think its a hard sell.
