Our take on the JBL Jembe™ Wireless

by Ralph Graves
JBL

The JBL Jembe Wireless Bluetooth® powered speakers have a distinctive look — and an equally distinctive sound. They deliver clean highs and clear, accurate midrange. Bass ports in the back help reinforce the lows, giving your music a nice, full sound. And the built-in amplifier produces 6 watts per channel — plenty of power for a desktop concert.

JBL Jembe wireless bluetooth powered speaker system

Bluetooth convenience

You can stream wirelessly to the Jembe Wirelessfrom just about any Bluetooth device — smartphone, tablet, laptop, or whatever. Spread out the Jembe's two matched speakers to create a truly spacious soundstage.

And you're not limited to Bluetooth sources. The system has a stereo minijack input. So you can play music from your non-Bluetooth devices as well and still enjoy that great JBL sound.

Simple and fun

The Jembe Wireless system is easy to setup, and easy to use. Plug in the power adapter, and run the connecting cord from one speaker to the other. Then pair your Bluetooth device wirelessly to the system.

The top of one of the speakers serves as the volume control. Place a finger in the indentation and turn. It's easy to dial the sound up or down.

Built-in Bluetooth lets you wirelessly stream music from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, computer, laptop, or music player. A 3.5mm input connects easily to any portable audio device with a headphone or audio output. The Jembe Wireless loudspeakers fit unobtrusively on any desk or bookshelf, and can elevate your multimedia experience with JBL's realistic sound quality.

Built-in Bluetooth w/ Harman TrueStream Technology: The Jembe Wireless speaker system streams stereo music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled devices such as your Apple iOS device, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, computer/PC or other devices.  Harman's TrueStream technology lets you enjoy the best possible listening experience when you're streaming audio wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to navigate your music and to view song/artist information. This unit pairs easily with your Bluetooth-enabled device. Once paired, the JBL Jembe Wireless will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 33').

Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the JBL Jembe Wireless.

Inputs/Outputs: The Jembe Wireless two-piece loudspeaker system offers two analog audio inputs. There are two 3.5mm inputs to connect your portable MP3 player, computer, or other audio device with a headphone or audio output. One 5' stereo minijack audio cable is included. The Jembe Wireless speaker system is also fitted with a 3.5mm headphone output to connect a set of headphones for private listening.

Note: In addition there is an attached 69" mono-RCA cable on one of the speakers which connects to the Mono-RCA jack on the other speaker.

Built-in Amp + Full-Range Drivers w/ Slipstream Port Technology: The Jembe Wireless two-piece entertainment loudspeaker system employs a built-in amplifier (6W+6W) that provides sufficient power and high-quality audio for music and movies with an enhanced acoustics that add depth and space. Each Jembe Wireless speaker is equipped with a single full-range driver. This unique full-range driver has been designed specifically to fit into small speaker enclosures while providing significant low bass. The result is a compact and elegant computer speaker that provides superior low bass, midrange and highs (80Hz to 20,000Hz). The Jembe Wireless loudspeaker system utilizes JBL Slipstream port technologies to ensure powerful, smooth-sounding bass with low distortion.

Compact & Portable Design: The Jembe Wireless system looks sharp and stylish in any room. The speakers feature JBL's Weave design which represents a perfect convergence of form and function. The Jembe Wireless system will not clutter your desk or home. Because the loudspeakers are small enough to pack easily into a bag, you can take great sound wherever you go.

Power Requirements: The Jembe Wireless computer speaker system operates off of standard household AC current using the supplied AC power adapter.

  • Input: 100-240V - 50/60Hz, 500mA
  • Output: 12.0V - 1500mA
Note: The JBL Jembe Wireless speaker system has a built-in power-saving feature. If no audio signal is present for approximately three minutes, the speakers will go into power-standby mode and the white LED will turn off. Once the JBL Jembe Wireless system detects an audio signal, the speakers will return to normal playing mode, and the white LED will light up.

Will this work with my Yamaha R-S300 am? [ Bob  May 11, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • These speakers are designed for connection to a device with Bluetooth (tablet, phone, etc). For the R-S300 you would likely want to look at a pair of bookshelf or similar speakers. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help you pick out the best speakers for your amp. [ Jeff Staff  May 12, 2014 ]
