Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of JBL best speaker that they have built. Let me start off by saying that i think the JBL PARTY BOX ENCORE is one of the best speaker that JBL has built. The ENCORE is a great speaker and portable, its unbelievable how much sound you get from a speaker of this size , I like JBL speakers,but this is one of my favotite. The ENCORE has great bass and volume. To get the most from this speaker you must download the JBL App so you can work the EQ and the light features and if you have another party box speaker you can connect them together in party mode or a stereo connection only if you have two of the same speakers, they also come with two high quality 🎤 that sound great for karaoke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh My God, Every Household needs this! First day I unbox this speaker, me & my wife ended up doing Karaoke for 3 hours straight. This is a great quality speaker, it is almost unbelievable to experience such a great sound from a portable speaker. But the icing on the cake is the mics, oh my god every household needs this speaker, it is such a fun thing. The mics quality is exception for a wireless microphone and so well built. This is one stop shop for a portable speaker with a great bass & Karaoke machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBLEncore is a small speaker with powerful sound. This is a great smaller portable speaker that packs a powerful sound. It has the same quality as the bigger speakers offered by JBL however, I like how it doesn't have to be plugged in at all times to be used. You plug it in to charge the speaker and unplug to take it wherever you desire. It offers the lights and bass boost like the larger party boxes which comes in handy in smaller spaces to light up a room. I also like how you can wirelessly pair this speaker with another JBL party box to spread out the sound over very large ranges. This party box also comes with two wireless microphones so that you can DJ or do karaoke. Overall, this is a great portable speaker to use for many functions, small or large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This speaker is a WINNER! The JBL Partybox Encore is a winner! It is so easy to get started. I just love controlling it with the app. The bass is amazing and the sound is perfect. It is light enough to move around or take with me as often as I want. It's a great speaker for the beach because it is water resistant. It was a hit at a recent dinner party I hosted. So many of my friends had compliments and that made me feel so good. The speaker has a decent battery life and that is so nice as well. Those wireless microphones are fabulous too! Karaoke anyone? This speaker makes parties so much fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy PartyBox with great features I bought the JBL PartyBox Encore a while ago, mainly to use at my birthday party and small gatherings with friends. It arrived very well and safely packaged. The setup of the box turned out to be quite simple. To play music with it you simply need to connect your device of choice (I used my smartphone) with it, which worked without issues. You can use the Box itself to control the volume of the music, or the App, which also lets you control other features e.g. the light show which accompanies the music. I was really pleased with the sound quality and the light effects, which helped create a fun atmosphere for my party. We also couldn’t resist trying the karaoke feature of the box. The package comes with a microphone and fitting batteries, so there’s no need for extra purchases to get going. The box itself also allows for different control options for the karaoke, e.g. volume and echo control. All in all I was quite happy with the PartyBox and how it elevated the party experience.

Product Q&A

What are the closest specifications for this speaker to get close to the 10hr battery life it calls for? Volume and what percent? Lights on or off? Bass boost or no bass boost? You should include that information with each speaker!

Asked by: Hdhdhd
The playtime of up to 10 hrs of our Partybox Endore varies depending on the volume level and audio content playing. To maximize the playing time of this speaker, we recommend playing at 60-80% volume with RGB off.

Will it hurt the battery if the encore is plugged in at all times?

Asked by: Tod89
There's no harm in using our JBL Partybox Encore while it's plugged in. Our products have PCM circuits that manage the charging of the battery and will switch the speaker to AC mode once fully charge. However, if you'd like to save energy, you may unplug the speaker.

Once the battery is fully charged while plugged in and playing music should the battery light stay on or shut off? Mine stays on, is that normal or does that mean it's over charging?

Asked by: Jshg
The Led indicator light of the Partybox Encore will remain on while the speakers in plugged-in. There's no harm in using our JBL Partybox Encore while it's plugged in. Our products have PCM circuits that manage the charging of the battery and will switch the speaker to AC mode once fully charge.

Is it good for big gatherings

Asked by: Malam
Thanks for your inquiry. It is best to consider how big the area is and the number of people attending the event before deciding whether our JBL PartyBox Encore is loud enough. We recommend our JBL PartyBox 1000 for big-spaced areas.
