Great sound, but I expected more from JBL Harman
Amazing sound, however Bass is so low that it is not always needed. Once you work out how to actually cancel the extra bass, which happens to be standard mode, it will only remain that way until you turn the power off then reverts back to heavy bass again. JBL Harmon do not even bother to let you know what other functions the control buttons do. You need to find it online somewhere and hope for the best. I was expecting so much more from what could be one of the best portable boomboxes on the market. JBL, how about including this information IN your Quick start guide.

Good sound, good battery life
Bought this about 3 months ago. Good aound, good bettery. But started having issue with power button. Couldn’t fixed by company’s technical people and replaced. Now Thinking to get money back. Took 3 weeks to sort this out.
Purchased at Harvey Norman for $549.00.
Don't be fooled by 24hr playback!
I bought this product a month ago with 2 years extended warrantee, overall its not a bad portable/waterproof bluetooth speaker. Although the sales person told me I would get 24hrs playback on full blast, so I made a purched based on that.
The first work day I took it out on the boat it covered over 10hrs on full blast which got me through my shift. The second time out on the boat with a full charge I got less than 10hrs playback, on indoor music mode setting for bass clarity.
I've mentioned to a store representative who gave some time to rese...arch, found that on outdoor mode this product is able to get longer playback. I'll try this next time out on the boat and report back with my findings. In summary, dont be fooled by JBL's marketing catch phrases of "Epic sound. All day long. Rally the crowd with monstrous sound and hard-hitting bass" or "Enjoy music for 24 hours without missing a beat" or even "Imagine playing your favourite beats from sunrise to sunrise on a single charge". If I had known this product is only capable of 10hrs playback on fullblast, I would not have bought it. Good luck.

Questions & Answers
Would anyone like to swap a boom box for a boombox2? I have compatibility issues with the one I have.
Hi just purchased the waterproof boombox switched it from house to outside once now the button doesnt want to change it back have you had issues with the switches only got it today also have the boombox 300 which is awesome
From the box speaker will power up and turn straight off. Very frustrating
Maybe try charging it completely overnight. If this is still happening, take it back to the retailer as you are entitled to a DOA exchange if it was purchased less then 7 days ago.
