CES 2022:New JBL PartyBox & BoomBox Speakers Revealed

Samsung subsidiary Harman, the owners of JBL and Harman Kardon, pulled the plug on their CES event for media at the last minute, but this has not stopped them from announcing new 2022 true wireless earbuds speakers and gaming headsets.

Australia’s leading mass market audio company, the JBL collection now includes a new Flip series. They have also updated their larger party box Bluetooth speakers.

The new JBL PartyBox Encore and Encore Essential are essentially identical, with the Encore providing two digital wireless microphones, similar to the BluAnt speakers.

With the PartyBox Encore, you get 10 hours of battery life, which is four hours more than the Encore Essential.

The speakers have the same IPX4 rating, 100W output, PartyBox app compatibility, and Bluetooth 5.1.

You can also use True Wireless Stereo to pair two compatible speakers together while laying on a cool light show. Connectivity options include (Bluetooth, USB, and aux).

Pricing for Australia have not been announced.


In the 2022 line-up is the JBL Boombox 3 and Pulse 5.

The Bluetooth JBL Boombox sits horizontally and looks a lot like the Xtreme 3, only bigger.

The big difference is that this speaker has 24-hour battery life and the ability to charge smartphones and tablets via a USB connection.

Smartphone owners can now charge their devices while playing music.

Both the Boombox 3 and Pulse 5 have an IP67 rating to resist dust and water, Bluetooth 5.3 with multipoint connectivity, and both support JBL PartyBoost.

PartyBoost lets you pair two compatible JBL speakers for stereo playback or join multiple speakers together for extra-loud output.

The big difference with the JBL Pulse 5 is its 360-degree LED light show.

You can use the JBL Portable app (iOS and Android) to customise the colours for up to 12 hours of entertainment.
