JBL launched a bunch of products at CES this year, but few looked to be as promising as the Charge 5. Part rugged Bluetooth speaker, part power bank, the newest entry in the Charge series has much to offer, but it’s a lot more spendy than your average Bluetooth speaker. While long-time JBL fans may be disappointed the new PartyBoost pairing feature has such narrow compatibility, everyone else will be too impressed by the class-leading audio and killer battery life to care.
With the holiday sale season over, it's not uncommon to see a few older products dropping in price to clear inventory that may not have sold sufficiently over the previous months. That makes it an opportune time to pick up gadgets like the JBL Link View, which just inched its way down below its previous record low of $90 to land at just $85.
This year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2021) doesn't technically start until next week, but there are always companies that reveal their new stuff a bit early. JBL has now announced several new audio products that will start shipping next month, including outdoor speakers, true wireless earbuds, and other audio gear.
If you're looking for a smart display that can double as an actual decent speaker and also comes with a built-in camera, look no further. The JBL Link View will help you get through your day, cook, and stay in touch with loved ones, all for just $90, which is $210 less than its original retail price.
You never know where the next spontaneous dance party will start, but you'll always be prepared with JBL's Xtreme 3 Bluetooth speaker. It boasts a portable, all-weather design, yet still produces powerful sound despite its relatively small size. Right now, Amazon is offering the Xtreme 3 for sale with a solid $35 discount, bringing the price down to $314.95.
JBL sells a lot of portable speakers, but one of the company's more popular options is the Xtreme 2. It's a water-resistant portable speaker, perfect for use around the home or outdoors, and now you can get it for $199.99. That's a savings of $150 over the usual price.
Prime Day is upon us, and with it comes a plethora of deals. You'll spot tons of tech sales today, but if you're looking for audio deals, you're in the right place: JBL's Boombox wireless Bluetooth speaker is on sale for $280 ($120 off) on Amazon.
JBL produces dozens of speakers and other audio products designed for outdoor/water use. One of them is the JBL Charge 4 speaker, which is a bit old at this point, but is still an excellent portable Bluetooth speaker. Now you can get it from Woot for just $89.99, and other JBL audio products are on sale too.
In an ideal world, we'd be at the IFA 2020 trade show in Berlin right now learning about Harman and subsidiary JBL's new products in person, but the new reality means we've had to settle for digital briefings this time around. Nevertheless, the company is launching a raft of new products, headlined by new true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation.
