Remix tries JBL’s new PartyBox Encore speaker 

The inevitable party season has finally entered the chat and Kiwis around the nation are in for a (very) well-deserved break. If you’re like us in the Remix office, our holidays consist of a little relaxing and a lot of time spent with friends and family, sipping on something fruity whilst jamming out to our Spotify-wrapped playlist. If you’re in the same boat and looking for something to make those summer soirées a little more memorable, then JBL’s newest music addition is exactly what the holiday doctor ordered. 

Cue the PartyBox Encore speaker, the latest speaker to join the already acclaimed JBL PartyBox series. Boasting an impressive 100W of sound complete with a built-in light show that syncs to music, the PartyBox Encore is a shoo-in to set the mood at any event. 

The party doesn’t stop there, the PartyBox Encore has also been designed to meet the rigours of both indoor and outdoor entertaining. Featuring a portable form factor, rubber-gripped handle, and an IPX4 splashproof design, so music lovers can party the night away without worrying about the elements. We all know the biggest pain point to any party is when the speaker dies, lucky for you this music maven offers up to 10 hours of battery life, meaning the PartyBox Encore will be the last one standing at your next party, keeping the music pumping for as long as you need.

And just when you thought the PartyBox Encore couldn’t get any better… Introducing Remix’s favourite feature - two die-cast zinc digital wireless microphones, perfectly optimised for karaoke. If you’re a pop star at heart and can actually hold a note, you’ll love and appreciate the low latency channel design along with adjustable bass, echo, and treble controls. As for the less musically gifted, rest assured belting out Mr Brightside at the top of your lungs will never sound better. Each digital wireless mic comes with replaceable AA batteries, allowing you to sing along all night without the fear of your performance being cut short.
