JBL Partybox On-The-Go

The JBL PartyBox On-The-Go hits that sweet spot between a portable Bluetooth speaker and a full-on PA system. Sure, you can stream music from your smartphone via Bluetooth. But you can also use the On-The-Go's wireless microphone to sing along with it. All while the speaker dazzles with a synchronized light show.

Big sound

The speaker features one 5-1/4" woofer for mids and bass, and two 1-3/4" tweeters for clean, clear highs. And when you want a little more oomph, just press the "Bass Boost" button. Plus the system has 100 watts RMS of built-in amplification, so you can be sure your music will come through loud and clear!

Wireless and wired connections

JBL includes a wireless microphone with a range of up to 32 feet. Use it to make announcements, or sing along with music playing through the speakers. The mic has its own volume control, plus treble, bass, and echo controls.

The Partybox On-The-Go also has separate 1/4" guitar and microphone inputs, each with their own volume control. Ideal for busking and coffee house gigs.

Cool party features

There's a slot on top of the speaker designed to hold your smartphone or tablet upright. Quite handy for displaying karaoke lyrics.

The speaker also has a USB port, ready for your party mix loaded on a flash drive.

The PartyBox On-The-Go is splash-proof, with rubber seals protecting its inputs. So you don't have to worry about using it poolside, or somebody spilling a drink. And speaking of drinks, the detachable shoulder strap just happens to have a bottle opener built-in.

A built-in rechargeable battery gives you up to 6 hours of operation.

Customer Q&A

I have a partybox but my mic will not line up with the box?
[ Samuel  Oct 03, 2022 ]

It sounds like you are trying to connect a wired microphone, and not use the included wireless mic correct, Samuel? If your wireless Bluetooth mic is having issues connecting first thing I would try is some fresh AA size batteries in it. IF you are trying to connect a traditional microphone with the wired input, you may need this adapter in the handy link below. This converts a standard balanced mic XLR cableto the 1/4" plug you need for the Partybox input. I hope this helps!
[ Bo  Oct 04, 2022 ]  Staff
Is it possible to connect a wireless lapel microphone to this speaker? We want to use this speaker to do StoryTimes out in the park and it would be nice to not have to hold a mic or use a mic stand.
[ JonoD  Aug 18, 2022 ]

I think that is a great idea, Jonathon! So you have some options here that may work depending on the specific lapel mic you plan to use. The Samson AirLine in the link below is a viable option, with a 7 hour battery life! The PartyBox On-The-Go offers a 1/4" Mic and 1/4" Guitar input, and most wireless mics will use that 1/4" mono plug for the transmitter. This Samson Airline uses a 1/8" but can be converted with an adapter. As long as you choose one with that 1/4" output configuration, you're good to go! The Mic and Guitar input also each have an independent gain control and echo effect which could be handy.
[ Bo  Aug 18, 2022 ]  Staff
I would like to get a second mic to pair with this speaker. I noticed that the asian countries get two mics. Which mic do I need to purchase to have an additional mic?
[ Alfred  Nov 08, 2021 ]

The JBL Partybox On-the-Go supports the included JBL wireless microphone and has a wired 1/4" Mic input you can use to connect a second microphone.
[ Jenny  Nov 12, 2021 ]  Staff
