JBL Partybox 310 is a powerful, large and heavy wireless speaker. Is it worth buying? About this in today’s review.

JBL Partybox 310 is a kind of multimedia command center. It not only allows you to start more than one house party, but it will work well at many different events, also outdoors. For almost a month of testing this device, I noticed its pros and cons.

JBL Partybox 310 – First impressions

JBL Partybox 310

The speaker is big and heavy. Seriously. It is nearly 70 centimeters tall and weighs 18 kilograms. We can place it vertically or horizontally – we have special non-slip protrusions for this, or using the entrance at the bottom of the housing, also hang it on a tripod.

Speaker Appearance

The device is quite interestingly designed. I have to admit that the designers got quite a lot out of it. The speaker is heavy, so to make it easier to move it from place to place, there are transport wheels at the bottom of the housing. In turn, at the very top there is a retractable handle. This means that the speaker can be turned almost into a travel suitcase and dragged behind you.

The top of the device is also a special indentation into which you can insert a tablet or smartphone. In this case, it will act as a screen. There is also a Bass Boost button to control the level of low sounds (normal, level 1, level 2), volume control buttons, source selection, quick BT pairing, speaker on or off, illumination mode, three predefined sound effects and three quite large buttons: echo, bass and treble. But about them in a moment.

Backlight

The speaker is illuminated in different ways. The buttons have a discreet white backlight for easy navigation in the dark. In the main part, consisting of two large diaphragms, we have a strobe backlight and LEDs. By controlling the button from the housing or using the mobile application, we can choose how the backlight behaves. I have to admit that I really liked the different lighting effects.

The back of the device hides the power input and an additional control panel. We have, among others, a USB port for charging a mobile device or connecting a pen drive. There is also a TWS button to pair two such speakers in stereo. We can also connect an external device using the AUX input. There is also the option of connecting two microphones at once or a guitar. Speaking of a microphone or guitar, it is possible to adjust the input sensitivity and volume of the plugged-in device.

Function buttons

I mentioned the Echo, Treble and Bass buttons at the very top of the device. They are quite large and stand out from the rest. At first I thought it was an equalizer to adjust the sound being played. However, they have no effect on the music being played. They are only used to correct the sound of input devices – guitar or microphone.

Below these buttons, there are three more responsible for special effects. Each of them is assigned a different sound – cheers of the crowd, applause, or a trumpet. It cannot be changed.

JBL Partybox 310 – In practice

The speaker has 240W RMS power, but the sound quality (especially the upper tones) immediately improves when connected to a constant power supply. I was very positively surprised that the device sounds equally well in different volume ranges. Some speakers start to spin up only when they get the right amount of power. Here it is very good even when we listen to music quietly.

The manufacturer boasts that the Partybox 310 is designed for parties, not only at home parties, but also at various larger events, such as weddings or outdoor parties. And I have to admit that this speaker can give you hell. It is able to play really loud (up to 126 dB) while maintaining very high sound quality. I was very positively surprised. Having the ability to connect two such speakers in stereo using GRP, it can easily be the first choice equipment for DJs or wedding bands.
