Best JBL Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Mic. If there is one word to describe this upgraded micro speaker, it would be brilliant. Brilliant in the sense of being well designed to increase volume, the battery life of the speaker, and brilliant terms of the sound quality.
I am a food delivery courier and use this speaker on my bicycle on average six hours per day. It is crucial that the speaker that I attach to my backpack can cut through road noise when producing audio directions, music, and spoken word. This upgrade succeeds on all fronts.
Best JBL Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Mic
It is noticeably louder than Clip 2 and, in addition to loudness, there is a brilliance (brightness) level which I can clearly detect depending on the quality of the source material. four instances, I have compared the sound quality, at their best available bit rates, of Amazon Prime Music and Tidal Hifi.
The speaker demonstrated the poor quality of the Amazon audio output; it sounds muddy and without any real dynamic range from between or within tracks. On Tidal, the brilliance of voice and bass overtones comes through in a striking way, I would call it really good. For instance, in GQ’s Disco Nights (Rock Freak), the opening baseline had a real head-turning pinch as I rode in heavy traffic by London’s Liverpool St. Station.
In fact, I would say it sounds better than the UE Boom 2 in both the tightness of the baseline and the brilliance of overturns and treble sounds. I also note that listening to the spoken words is much clearer, in noisy traffic. This is an ideal set-up+ for a dedicated Radio 4 listener using iPlayer.
