JBL BoomBox 2 Overview
JBL BoomBox 2 measures 19.1 x 7.9 x 10.1 (inches) and weighs about 5.9 Kgs. It is big and heavy but it is portable as it gets a handle to easily carry it fro one place to another.
It comes with an IPX7 rating meaning it can be submerged up to 3.3 feet underwater for up to 30 minutes.
It looks similar to the JBL BoomBox. There’s a huge handle on top of the speaker and the housing is covered in the grille. On the front, there are buttons for power, Bluetooth, play/pause, and volume control.
It also has a dedicated party boost button for linking the speaker with other JBL speakers to output the same audio. Then it has a LED strip on the front face which works as a battery indicator.
On the back, it has a panel for a power supply, a USB charging port, a micro USB port, and a 3.5mm aux input.
Connectivity and Audio
JBL BoomBox 2 comes with the loudest and most massive JBL Signature Pro Sound. It pumps out powerful and deep bass thanks to the two large passive radiators that aid in pumping out the bass. There are two 30-watt tweeters and two 40-watt woofers that operate in a combined frequency range of 50Hz to 20KHz.
It is compatible with Bluetooth 5.1 but it only supports the SBC Bluetooth codec. It does not support AAC or AptX codec.
JBL BoomBox 2 has a monstrous 10,000 mAh which JBL claims can provide up to 24 hours of continuous music playback. It can also be used as a power bank to charge devices like smartphones.
As for charging, it takes 6.5 hours to charge it from 0 to 100.
JBL BoomBox 2 Price in Nepal and Availability
JBL BoomBox 2 price in Nepal is Rs. 52,000. It is available in black and a camo version. It is available via Daraz and Evostore. It is priced at 500 USD on JBL’s website and Amazon but it’s cheaper in Nepal. So, that’s a good thing if you are looking to buy it.
JBL BoomBox 2 is one of those audio speakers which is for the ones who love to flex and party hard.
However, I find it confusing to know that a 500$ speaker doesn’t support AAC or AptX codec. Also, there’s no companion app so EQ adjustments can not be made.
