1 min read

JBL just unveiled their new LINK speakers, and this time they do more than just play music. The LINK series includes a voice activated Assistant from Google, pairing up JBL’s signature sound with the power of Google’s Assistant technology. Using only your voice these new JBL LINK speakers will play your music, control your smart home, answer questions, check traffic or even the weather. The LINK speakers include casting capabilities and JBL’s award winning sound to ensure your music sounds its very best.

JBL’s LINK series includes a set of three different speakers with the LINK 10 and 20 being the portable of the trio. The LINK 10 features 2x8W speakers and battery life for up to 5 hours. Meanwhile, the LINK 20 doubles the battery life to 10 hours and uses 2x10W speakers. Both the LINK 10 and 20 offer IPX7 waterproofing to keep them safe while on the go.

The LINK 300 is the bigger, louder, and more expensive of the three providing a more powerful 50w speaker and the ability to link together on the same WiFi network. It lacks the waterproofing but seeing how it’s not leaving the home it should be safer from the elements.

Pricing for the JBL LINK series starts at $149 for the LINK 10, $199 for the LINK 20 and goes up to $249 for the LINK 300. If you’re wanting to get your hands on these you’ll have to wait till this Fall when the LINK speakers become available in black or white from JBL online and select retailers.
