The Ultimate Dorm Party: JBL’s PartyBox Portable Speaker System

Introducing the Newest Boombox

The JBL PartyBox On-The-Go is an awesome addition to any dorm party, with its excellent 21st century features that bring your dorm to life. This PartyBox can sync with all of your other devices, whether it be a smartphone, extra speakers, smart lights, or just through a classic USB stick; all through Bluetooth, USB, AUX and/or True Wireless Stereo (TWS).

What’s more is the JBL wireless mic gives your dorm party more pizazz that connects you and your vocals straight to the music, blending right in, just in case you sound terrible without. Also included is a bottle opener in case you’re having trouble with your drinks; a padded shoulder strap to turn the PartyBox into a fashionable handbag and become even more portable in every sense of the word; and a rechargeable battery that will last around 6 hours. If the party leaves the dorm, the JBL On-The-Go PartyBox will be able to keep up with you wherever the fun takes you.

High Quality Sound

There’ll be no issues with someone not being able to hear the music at your dorm party. The output power of 100W RMS, and a 50 Hz – 20 KHz bring the party to you, and a > 80dBA signal-to-noise ratio that will help you see, hear and feel the beat. Whether you’re right up next to the PartyBox, or at the edge of the party, you won’t be able to escape the dorm party ambience – especially if it’s linked up with two compatible speakers with the True Wireless Stereo Bluetooth connections established.

Great For Drinking With

IPX4 splash proof protection is perfect for keeping your JBL On-The-Go PartyBox safe during many circumstances of any dorm party. We all know it can get a little hectic during beer pong or similar drinking games, and sometimes one little splash can ruin all the fun. With the PartyBox, you don’t need to worry about any of that due to the water (and alcohol) resistance.

Additionally, the aforementioned bottle opener is attached to the shoulder strap included with the PartyBox, meaning you won’t have to let go of your grip on the tunes whilst you open more bottles to keep the party going on and on. JBL’s On-The-Go PartyBox is filled with all sorts of nifty designs that keep the functionality simple, so you aren’t distracted from the action for too long.

Bluetooth pairing is easy – almost as easy as plugging in a USB stick filled with music, or just placing your phone on top to instantly pair the devices and resume the music instantly. On top of that, literally, the dials to control bass, treble, echo, volume, and so on are easily accessed which makes adjusting your settings to get the right atmosphere super straightforward.

Plug and Play

The built-in microphone input does a fantastic job at letting you take part in the action without any add-ons needed, since the microphone is included, and there are even two microphones included in Asia Pacific countries, except in India and Japan. Although if you have some, that can’t hurt either since there are inputs for guitars too if you’re so musically inclined. With a guitar attached to the PartyBox, you can either strum along to your favorite playlist, or make your own songs for everyone to hear. A little bass boost couldn’t hurt either.

Furthermore, with the microphone input, the bass, treble and echo settings are still customizable whilst singing. This means you can change the effects of your voice, even with a friend with dual mic inputs. Perhaps for karaoke, or maybe even setting up studio-like audio settings for a personal stage at your dorm party.
