JBL Partybox 310 speaker review - loud 240 watts

The JBL brand has released a new large speaker for parties called the Partybox 310. And its positioning is already becoming clear: a device for “pumping” the sound of the people in open spaces or in large rooms, because there is everything you need for this:

  • 240 W total power;
  • light music;
  • connecting two microphones or a guitar with a microphone;
  • setting effects;
  • connecting several such speakers into one audio system;
  • connecting to the speaker via Bluetooth, AUX and USB;
  • autonomous power for 18 hours;
  • the ability to charge external devices, such as smartphones;
  • 12V power connection from the car;
  • a special recess on the body of the gadget for installing a tablet or phone.

By the way, in order to carry almost 18 kg of sound, the device has two wheels and even a handle.

In general, a beautiful, stylish, youthful and expensive thing for connoisseurs of sound and admirers of the JBL brand. The price of Partybox 310 is 35,000 rubles.

Appearance

Quite a classic design of all modern devices of the JBL brand. The funny thing is that other companies try to replicate the design, sometimes it turns out well, but more often it is complete ugliness and bad taste.

The front panel meets us with a metal grill, the structure is triangles. The grate does not flex even under decent pressure.

JBL Partybox 310 Speaker Review - Loud 240 Watts

Most of the body is plastic of various types. For example, the sidewalls, the upper area and the back surface - the material is porous. But the right and left sides are decorated in the form of matte and glossy stripes. JBL is written on one plane, a huge branded exclamation mark flaunts on the other.

JBL Partybox 310 Speaker Review - Loud 240 Watts

You can see bright orange legs to the right and left. This tells us that the Partybox 310 can be placed on a horizontal surface with any part of the case.

The dimensions of the speaker are impressive - 325.6 x 687.7 x 367.8 mm, but not the largest, that is, I tested larger devices of this type. But the weight of the Partybox is very large - 17.4 kg. Actually, therefore, the column has two wheels of approximately 70 mm in diameter and a telescopic handle. Moreover, to extend it, you need to press it, and to install it back, squeeze the handle and lower it down until it locks.

The inner part of the handle is made in orange, the inner part where the handle is hidden is similarly made.

As far as rain protection is concerned, IPx4 rating is provided here. However, feedback from real users suggests that it is still undesirable to drag the Partybox outside in a downpour, since there is a possibility of moisture getting inside the device. At least the 300 model was poorly protected, you could see it on the video when disassembling the column.

There are 6 options in total, and the strobe works in all cases. 1) Circular illumination. 2) The backlight lights up jerkily. 3) Highlight fills from top to bottom towards the center. 4) The backlight fills smoothly from bottom to top towards the center. 5) The backlight is filled in opposite directions. 6) The backlight is completely off.

In the application, you can customize the effects in more detail. For example, turn on only the backlight or only the strobe.

The Partybox 310 has a total of 4 stroboscopic elements located at the ends of the case. They do not flash very brightly: at night you can see well, but during the day they are simply noticeable. You should not expect that in nature you Ibirere Bicycle Decoration will light up hundreds of meters . The effective distance is no more than 10-20 meters.

The backlight is beautiful, smooth, the fill is uniform. But I can’t single out any special features.

On the back of the column:

  • Large phase inverter;
  • Power connection with plug;
  • Separate compartment with heavy-duty rubber plug.

This compartment contains the following items:

  • Two connectors for microphones or microphone and guitar;
  • Mechanical switching between guitar and microphone;
  • Adjust the volume of the above devices;
  • Adjust the gain of the above devices;
  • USB output and input. In the first case, various devices can be connected to it to recharge the battery (5D / 2.1A). In the second, as a source of information (music in WAV or MP3 format);
  • TWS button for pairing two Partybox 310s;
  • AUX;
  • 12V input to power the battery of the device from the car. Cable not included;
  • Daisy chain. As far as I understand, this is connecting several speakers in a chain using a cable.

About sound

Unfortunately, I did not find a parsing of the JBL Partybox 310 speaker. There are 300th models that have been disassembled on the Web, but it is not entirely correct to focus on them: circuits, speakers and other electronics may not match.

The 310 has two 176mm woofers and two 65mm tweeters. The total peak power is 240 watts. Frequency range 45 Hz - 20 kHz. The last parameter is correct, since I can definitely hear the sound from 40 Hz by ear.

JBL Partybox 310 speaker review - loud 240 watts JBL Partybox 310 Speaker Review - Loud 240 Watts

What really surprised me was the frequency response of this model. Most often, such devices give out a maximum of 80 Hz - 15 kHz. And in this case, you hear deep low frequencies that make walls, cabinets and shelves tremble when playing music in the room.

If we talk about volume, then it is enough for a good buildup in rooms of 50-100 m2. Very loud, powerful, clean and high quality. At about 50% volume, the neighbors can already go crazy. And here we are not even talking about loudness, but rather about wild basses that make dishes and household appliances dance hopak.

JBL Partybox 310 Speaker Review - Loud 240 Watts

The speaker does an excellent job of reproducing mids and lows, but I think there is a slight drop in the highs. In addition, I did not hear those same “poops”. I would put some more 30-40mm tweeters.

JBL Partybox 310 Speaker Review - Loud 240 Watts

When it comes to genres, the Partybox 310 is best at playing pop, rock, jazz and classical. Metal and something heavier - not that. The melody turns into a mess, you can hardly separate the instruments. Well, the volume here is weak.

Naturally, what I said above is a purely subjective impression.

So, the main conclusions on the sound.

Pros:

  • Very loud;
  • Clean;
  • Deep low frequencies;
  • Powerful and assertive.

Cons:

  • Little high;
  • Metal and similar genres don't do very well.

A few words about the microphone

Microphone not included, but friends from JBL fitted it for me to test. Oh, you have no idea how many emotions my daughter had when I played her karaoke from children's songs. Why, he himself yelled the songs of the groups “Hands Up”, “Hi-Fi”, “Inveterate Scammers” and so on for a couple of hours. All this remains in the family archive, I won’t show it on the site :) But if this text gets 10,000 likes ... Just kidding :)

The microphone has bass, treble, and echo settings. Usually these are just useless knobs on the front panel of the speaker. But in Partybox they really work.

JBL Partybox 310 Speaker Review - Loud 240 Watts

If you're interested, I had a JBL PBM100 microphone. A compact and high-quality gadget with an on/off button.

Impressions

It was fun and very loud! JBL has once again made a great product from a series of huge party speakers. As usual - some emotions. True, this time the cost of the device at 35,000 rubles scared me a little. Perhaps I would be ready to pay an amount in the region of 25,000 - 27,000 rubles for the Partybox 310 column.

As such, the gadget has no disadvantages, but there are "Wishlist": more high frequencies and equalizer settings through a proprietary application. The rest is a classic JBL with all the consequences.

Among competitors it is worth highlighting:

  • Sony MHC-V43D for about 30,000 rubles;
  • PANASONIC SC-TMAX20GSK for 25,000 rubles;
  • Vipe WOOX450 for 17,000 rubles.

However, frankly, apart from JBL, I don't see really popular speakers here. Everywhere you look, there are all sorts of JBL PartyBoxes everywhere. This is neither good nor bad, it's just that the brand has taken its niche, and potential buyers know the way to it.

At least the 300 model was poorly protected, you could see it on the video when disassembling the speaker.

The assembly of the Model 310 raises no questions: no hints of "basement-china". If you take such devices two times cheaper than other brands, then the difference is very noticeable: those that are more affordable are frankly poorly assembled, but I generally keep quiet about the quality of materials. I do not justify the rather high cost of the Partybox 310, but it becomes clear what the money was spent on.

Elements on the body

On the front panel:

  • Play/pause and volume control;
  • BassBoost - two bass modes and disable it;
  • Switch source between Bluetooth, AUX and USB;
  • Three separate sound effect buttons. They can be replaced in the JBL PARTYBOX app on your smartphone. They work strangely: their volume is much higher than set when playing musical compositions. Well, the sounds themselves are primitive;
  • Adjust microphone settings: bass, treble, and echo. Beautifully designed: 7 positions in total, up buttons are filled with green, down with red, center position with white;
  • Bluetooth pairing and device power button. Between them is a battery status indicator;
  • A large round button for changing the effect of color music.

There are 6 options in total, and the strobe works in all cases. 1) Circular illumination. 2) The backlight lights up jerkily. 3) Highlight fills from top to bottom towards the center. 4) The backlight fills smoothly from bottom to top towards the center. 5) The backlight is filled in opposite directions. 6) The backlight is completely off.

In general, a beautiful, stylish, youthful and expensive thing for connoisseurs of sound and admirers of the JBL brand. The price of Partybox 310 is 35,000 rubles.

Appearance

Quite a classic design of all modern devices of the JBL brand. The funny thing is that other companies try to replicate the design, sometimes it turns out well, but more often it is complete ugliness and bad taste.

The front panel meets us with a metal grill, the structure is triangles. The grate does not flex even under decent pressure.

Most of the body is plastic of various types. For example, the sidewalls, the upper area and the back surface - the material is porous. But the right and left sides are decorated in the form of matte and glossy stripes. JBL is written on one plane, a huge branded exclamation mark flaunts on the other.

You can see bright orange legs to the right and left. This tells us that the Partybox 310 can be placed on a horizontal surface with any part of the case.

The dimensions of the speaker are impressive - 325.6 x 687.7 x 367.8 mm, but not the largest, that is, I tested larger devices of this type. But the weight of the Partybox is very large - 17.4 kg. Actually, therefore, the column has two wheels of approximately 70 mm in diameter and a telescopic handle. Moreover, to extend it, you need to press it, and to install it back, squeeze the handle and lower it down until it locks.

The inner part of the handle is made in orange, the inner part where the handle is hidden is similarly made.

As far as rain protection is concerned, IPx4 rating is provided here. However, feedback from real users suggests that it is still undesirable to drag the Partybox outside in a downpour, since there is a possibility of moisture getting inside the device. At least the 300 model was poorly protected, you could see it on the video when disassembling the column.

The assembly of the Model 310 raises no questions: no hints of "basement-china". If you take such devices two times cheaper than other brands, then the difference is very noticeable: those that are more affordable are frankly poorly assembled, but I generally keep quiet about the quality of materials. I do not justify the rather high cost of the Partybox 310, but it becomes clear what the money was spent on.

Elements on the body

On the front panel:

  • Play/pause and volume control;
  • BassBoost - two bass modes and disable it;
  • Switch source between Bluetooth, AUX and USB;
  • Three separate sound effect buttons. They can be replaced in the JBL PARTYBOX app on your smartphone. They work strangely: their volume is much higher than set when playing musical compositions. Well, the sounds themselves are primitive;
  • Adjust microphone settings: bass, treble, and echo. Beautifully designed: 7 positions in total, up buttons are filled with green, down with red, center position with white;
  • Bluetooth pairing and device power button. Between them is a battery status indicator;
  • A large round button for changing the effect of color music.

There are 6 options in total, and the strobe works in all cases. 1) Circular illumination. 2) The backlight lights up jerkily. 3) Highlight fills from top to bottom towards the center. 4) The backlight fills smoothly from bottom to top towards the center. 5) The backlight is filled in opposite directions. 6) The backlight is completely off.

In the application, you can customize the effects in more detail. For example, turn on only the backlight or only the strobe.

The Partybox 310 has a total of 4 stroboscopic elements located at the ends of the case. They do not flash very brightly: at night you can see well, but during the day they are simply noticeable. You should not expect that in nature you will illuminate hundreds of meters of Ibirere Bicycle Decoration. The effective distance is no more than 10-20 meters.

The backlight is beautiful, smooth, the fill is uniform. But I can’t single out any special features.

On the back of the column:

  • Large phase inverter;
  • Power connection with plug;
  • Separate compartment with heavy-duty rubber plug.

This compartment contains the following items:

  • Two connectors for microphones or microphone and guitar;
  • Mechanical switching between guitar and microphone;
  • Adjust the volume of the above devices;
  • Adjust the gain of the above devices;
  • USB output and input. In the first case, various devices can be connected to it to recharge the battery (5D / 2.1A). In the second, as a source of information (music in WAV or MP3 format);
  • TWS button for pairing two Partybox 310s;
  • AUX;
  • 12V input to power the battery of the device from the car. Cable not included;
  • Daisy chain. As far as I understand, this is connecting several speakers in a chain using a cable.

About sound

Unfortunately, I did not find a parsing of the JBL Partybox 310 speaker. There are 300th models that have been disassembled on the Web, but it is not entirely correct to focus on them: circuits, speakers and other electronics may not match.

The 310 has two 176mm woofers and two 65mm tweeters. The total peak power is 240 watts. Frequency range 45 Hz - 20 kHz. The last parameter is correct, since I can definitely hear the sound from 40 Hz by ear.

What really surprised me was the frequency response of this model. Most often, such devices give out a maximum of 80 Hz - 15 kHz. And in this case, you hear deep low frequencies that make walls, cabinets and shelves tremble when playing music in the room.

If we talk about volume, then it is enough for a good buildup in rooms of 50-100 m2. Very loud, powerful, clean and high quality. At about 50% volume, the neighbors can already go crazy. And here we are not even talking about volume, but rather about wild basses that make dishes and household appliances dance hopak.

The speaker does an excellent job of reproducing mids and lows, but I think there is a slight drop in the highs. In addition, I did not hear those very “poops”. I would put some more 30-40mm tweeters.

When it comes to genres, the Partybox 310 is best at playing pop, rock, jazz and classical. Metal and something heavier - not that. The melody turns into a mess, you can hardly separate the instruments. Well, the volume here is weak.

Naturally, what I said above is a purely subjective impression.

So, the main conclusions on the sound.

Pros:

  • Very loud;
  • Clean;
  • Deep low frequencies;
  • Powerful and assertive.

Cons:

  • Little high;
  • Metal and similar genres don't do very well.

A few words about the microphone

Microphone not included, but friends from JBL fitted it for me to test. Oh, you have no idea how many emotions my daughter had when I played her karaoke from children's songs. Why, he himself yelled the songs of the groups “Hands Up”, “Hi-Fi”, “Inveterate Scammers” and so on for a couple of hours. All this remains in the family archive, I won’t show it on the site :) But if this text gets 10,000 likes ... Just kidding :)

The microphone has bass, treble, and echo settings. Usually these are just useless knobs on the front panel of the speaker. But in Partybox they really work.

If you're interested, I had a JBL PBM100 microphone. A compact and high-quality gadget with an on/off button.

Impressions

It was fun and very loud! JBL has once again made a great product from a series of huge party speakers. As usual - some emotions. True, this time the cost of the device at 35,000 rubles scared me a little. Perhaps I would be ready to pay an amount in the region of 25,000 - 27,000 rubles for the Partybox 310 column.

As such, the gadget has no disadvantages, but there are "Wishlist": more high frequencies and equalizer settings through a proprietary application. The rest is a classic JBL with all the consequences.

Among competitors it is worth highlighting:

  • Sony MHC-V43D for about 30,000 rubles;
  • PANASONIC SC-TMAX20GSK for 25,000 rubles;
  • Vipe WOOX450 for 17,000 rubles.

However, frankly, apart from JBL, I don't see really popular speakers here. Everywhere you look, there are all sorts of JBL PartyBoxes everywhere. This is neither good nor bad, it's just that the brand has taken its niche, and potential buyers know the way to it.

Waiting for you in the comments: do you use such large columns, and if so, which ones?
