Ratings and Reviews
I’m a truck driver and I use my speakers all the time . I stopped using them before the update because they would go in and out . I just updated and I do see improvement on the sync, before the speakers would go out and come back on but would not be in sync with the picture. That problem looks like it is fixed. The problem now is they still go in and out , I use them with my iPad and I really love the speakers. I hope the developers can get this together and as the updates come out I will give my opinion on them . Also note they do not stay synced when you play them together. One will drop out and one will play on and off.I give two stars for the small update.
Update august 5 . I will give five stars now because I haven’t had any problems with the connection for the last month. The app is working fine at this time.
At least you have something
The JBL app is… well it’s available for the JBL speakers. I was going to give it 2 stars, but they recently added the option the adjust the EQ on the speaker. I suppose I’m a little sour because I used to use the Ultimate ears app with the MegaBoom speaker. With that app you could turn on and off the speaker (which was super handy if you were laying in bed and wanted to crank some music in the moment, you didn’t have to get up and find the speaker, or if you didn’t know where the speaker was 😆) it never lost Bluetooth connection, never had to find it in my phone Bluetooth settings. If other Ultimate Ears speakers were on, you’d simply “drag” the speakers into your profile and they’d instantly start playing what you were playing… good for party’s. I understand you can do this with the JBL speakers as well (I own 3) With that though, the JBL speakers are WAY better (in my opinion) than the Ultimate Ears speakers, but the JBL app isn’t very good… it often doesn’t find the speaker that I’m currently playing from, and same for other speakers that are awaiting to be linked together… I almost never use the JBL app, I just run my speakers manually (which works really well) If anyone from JBL reads this… AWESOME speakers, but the app needs work when compared to others.
Sound cutting out resolved!!!
After reading through the reviews, there is a guy down the thread that explained how JBL support helped correct the issue. Don’t follow the on-screen instructions completely. Only connect a single speaker via Bluetooth to your device. Then use the app to link up other speakers via partyboost (connect feature). Once they are finished linking together via the connect app (REMEMBER ONLY ONE SPEAKER IS TO BE CONNECTED THROUGH BLUETOOTH), the sound issues will disappear. I have had nothing except for flawless crystal clear sound while streaming ever since! Thank you to that guy for posting the solution. I was going insane and was furious before that. Good luck whoever takes the time to read this.
