JBL Authentics Series Speakers and the PartyBox Ultimate Bring the Style and Rhythm

JBL makes amazing speakers for every occasion, and if you’re looking for ways to boost the sound in your home and beyond, they’ve got some exciting new ones coming out soon! Whether you’re looking for a more classic-looking smart speaker for your home or something that will make everyone want to get up and dance, the JBL Authentics Series and the JBL PartyBox Ultimate offer something for everyone!

JBL Authentics 500

JBL Authentics 500

The JBL Authentics 500 brings looks and brains to the table. It has a retro design that makes it as much a piece of decor as a powerful speaker. It sports three 1″ tweeters, three 2.75″ midrange woofers, and one 6.5″ down-firing subwoofer.

If you’re looking for something smaller, there’s also the JBL Authentics 300 with 8 hours of battery life or the JBL Authentics 200 with 1″ tweeters, a 5″ woofer, and a down-firing 6″ passive radiator for deep bass.

In the JBL Authentics range, you’ll discover a delightful blend of nostalgia and innovation. Drawing inspiration from the groovy vibes of the 1970s, the design pays homage to the beloved JBL L-100 home speakers that captured hearts back then.

But it doesn’t stop there – JBL has infused modern flair with contemporary materials, colors, textures, and finishes, taking cues from fashion and lifestyle trends. What emerges is a timeless look that effortlessly marries the past and the future.

You’ll spot familiar elements like the iconic Quadrex grille pattern, now reimagined with gentler, flowing edges that seem to echo the rhythm of powerful sound waves. And that’s not all. The signature JBL PowerLine frame adds a touch of unmistakable quality to these devices, while the control panel is designed with a satisfying tactile feel.

But it’s not just about style – sustainability is woven into the very fabric of the new Authentics range. JBL has crafted the cabinets and handles from recycled aluminum; many internal components are made from recycled plastic.

On top of that, the JBL Authentics series proves their beauty isn’t their best trick —they can also support both Alexa and Google Assistant on the same speaker. If you’re a split household or use different assistants for different features, JBL has you covered all around.

Look for the JBL Authentics series starting at €329.99 for the 200, €429.99 for the 300, and €629.99 for the 500 this September.

  1. One possible problem with using speakers with voice assistants at a party is that someone talking to their friend named Alexa or anything similar might inadvertently stop the music.
