JBL’s new Bluetooth speakers range from tiny to massive (and expensive)

In addition to announcing a trio of new wireless earbuds today, JBL has announced a range of Bluetooth speakers.

JBL Link Bar, an Android TV soundbar with Google Assistant, is finally shipping

Back in August 2018, JBL started accepting pre-orders for its Link Bar, a hybrid soundbar device that includes Android TV and Google Assistant built-in.

JBL Boombox speaker is a Bluetooth behemoth

JBL Boombox speaker is a Bluetooth behemoth

While some Bluetooth speakers try to pack the best sound quality into as small a package as possible, the new JBL Boombox is taking the opposite approach.
