JBL Partybox Stage 320 review

Our score:

The Partybox 320 is a beatiful 'in between' speaker when comparing it to its larger brothers the 710 and the Ultimate. And it packs quite a bit more punch than it's little sibling - the 120. The robust build quality, powerful sound output, and customizable lighting effects make it the best overall choice in our oppinion. However, this is fully down to personal and occiasional needs. Connectivity options, including Bluetooth, AUX, USB, and microphone inputs, cater to diverse user needs. The 18-hour battery life ensures uninterrupted music playback, though its weight may limit portability. Overall, the JBL Partybox Stage 320 delivers an exceptional audio experience with a few minor drawbacks, making it a top-tier choice for those seeking a versatile and high-performance portable speaker.
