JBL CES 2022 – loud, louder and loudest

JBL CES 2022 updates a huge range of existing products – longer battery life, later Bluetooth, increased fidelity and more. Not that the Samsung owned company needs more products. Its range is comprehensive, covering Bluetooth speakers, party speakers, all manner of ear-and-headphones, soundbars and gaming cans.

The JBL CES 2022 announcements reflect a new design style – it is more about street cred than necessarily style.

JBL Boombox 3

Improvements via a new speaker system (racetrack-shaped subwoofer, two mid-range drivers and two tweeters and two passive bass reflex ports) offering more bass, clearer dialogue and more power. It also uses Bluetooth 5.3, IP67 and provides power bank capabilities for 24 hours (theoretical) life.

JBL Pulse 5

This glow in the dark LED speaker has been a great seller, and the LED syncing with the music is brighter. BT 5.3, IP67 and 12 hours battery. Sound-wise it has a larger passive radiator (more bass), mid-low frequency woofer and a high tweeter to cover the range.

JBL PartyBox Encore

After making two of the most potent party boxes in 2021, the encore slips in at the entry-level with 100W mono, two stylish mics and IPX4 splash resistance. It has the LED Light sync, and you can stereo pair.

JBL Wind 3 and 3S

We have not seen this here, but it is an IP67 waterproof speaker for bikes. The Wind 3 has FM radio and LED display, and both have BT, MicroSD and AUX-in, hands-free calling, and 5 hours play.
