Consensus

our Verdict

Analysts hailed the JBL PartyBox 110, endorsing it for parties, the outdoors, and music. Editors at Nerd Techy loved its dual-device Bluetooth 5.1 pairing technology, although its 151 ms iOS Bluetooth latency and 167 ms Android latency are high. Analysts at Popular Mechanics loved its app-based graphics EQ and IPX4-rated water-resistant construction. Tests revealed a good 14.7-hour battery life. See our JBL PartyBox 300 review for a longer-lasting battery. Unfortunately, it has a high 4.85 dB directivity index, providing a narrow, directional soundstage. It supports stereo and has a good 41.8Hz to 18.5 kHz frequency response range. Featuring a decent 3.66 dB frequency-response standard error, it produces well-balanced music. Hitting a 98.3 dB top SPL and low 2.92 dB DRC during experiments, this device gets loud without losing audio quality at high volume settings. However, if you require a louder device, see our JBL PartyBox 100 review. However, it lacks speakerphone functions and has a bulky 23.5-lb mass. It also doesn’t support voice assistants.

Featuring a 3.66 dB frequency response standard error, the JBL PartyBox 110 produces a more neutral, balanced sound than the Sony XP700, which has a higher 4.12 dB error.
