JBL Partybox Encore Essential

In partnership with JBL

There’s a party in JBL’s Partybox and everyone’s invited! Sorry, we had to do that. But in all seriousness, this is one truly impressive wireless speaker, which delivers up to 100W of JBL Original Pro sound with a built-in light show to match. Effortlessly portable, it’s also splashproof to the tune of IPX4, equipped with a wired mic input, capable of multi-source playback, and able to wirelessly sync with another of its kind to double the fun!

The JBL Partybox Encore Essential can run for up to 6 hours at a time on a single charge as it pours epic acoustics and dynamic lights into the surrounding area. However, it also features both an auxiliary port and a USB port should you want to keep the party going for as long as humanly possible. You can control it at the push of a button or by way of an adjoining app, which also allows you to customise lights and update settings. Let’s get it started! – AUD$349.95
